    You even try that and I will make sure to have the cops on you in a heartbeat. Also bare in mind that I have a video camera, digital and film camera, audio tape recorder, and a digital recorder and will capture harassers and will send such info to the press.

    But perhaps this is not Godly. But then again there is nothing wrong with protecting myself, and in this day and age there are many people out to get you.

    I want to apologize for calling you people idiots. I know many of you hate me, and I personally cannot stand some of you. Including the person C4K. This man is a bigtime hypocrite.

    For example

    People like Gib and several others have said that I am a lunatic and said other harassing things to me and C4K has always just ignored them, but if I made these remarks to others C4K is down on me in a heartbeat. And this man calls himself a pastor? Perhaps he is a pastor and perhaps some people are fooled by his hypocrisy, but that man lacks love and shows favortism.

    Another poster said this

    The people around here like Gib have called me a lunatic and C4K has said nothing to them, but has always gotten on me for everything.

    Its not that I wanted to hear something, I just wanted Godly counself which is terribly lacking around here.

    Hank Hanagraaf and many others have told me what I did not want to hear, but they communicate in a Godly way (unlike many here).

    Another said

    I dont give a darn what he has to say. But I do care about what the bible says God does not forbid debts, he only forbids not paying on them.

    Questions for those who claim we should owe no man anything

    How does this idea allow for the Greek meaning of the word "owe"?
    The Greek word is in the present tense, not the aorist tense.
    Therefore, it is not referring to the idea we should never, at any
    point in time (aorist tense), owe anyone anything, but that we should
    not keep on owing (present tense) any many anything.


    Today I talked with a 50 year old man who gave me some enouragement. He was on disability for 5+ years. In that time without a job he incurred some 60-70K in CC debt. Thats many many times higher than my dinky $4,500. Even my debt is below the California state average, and much lower than the San Francisco Bay Area average.

    I have been to this mans house and can honestly say that he does not live in style. He is poor and most of that 60-70K was used as he claims to fix cars, and deal with medical problems.

    But he told me of how God worked in his family's life and the CC companies forgave his 60-70K wihtout a bankrupcy!

    Know the Lord gave him a job as he is no longer disabled and will start working and saving.


    I was encouraged by this man whom LIVES IN CALIFORNIA.

    Howver he did say one thing to me.

    He said that it was a waste of time trying to prove or make people form outside of california understand what debt is. They DO NOT and cannot understand, since they do not know what it is like living outside a depressed economy.

    Bible John,
    Is this a post filled with Christian love?
    If you are so upset that you cannot post in a civil manner then why don't you find yourself a board that is more suitable to your liking? There are other boards that enjoy tearing one another apart if that is what you enjoy. No one is stopping you from joining such a board. But you agreed to abide by the rules of this board when you joined. Thus far you have not. Read them over again. If you still disagree with or find that you cannot abide with them, I suggest that you resign your membership and find another board where you will feel more at home.

    In Christ,
    DHK

    Its perfectly okay to call me a Lunatic or another defaming name, but when I address it in the open, then I am not acting "Christ Like."

    No, in that you are right. If I see anyone calling you a lunatic I will edit it right away. The problem with me is that I cannot be reading all the posts all the time, and thus do not catch everything.

    John still has not responded to my request that he provide anything mean spirited that I haev said to him. He contiunes to spew out venom, recently calling me an "ignorant idiot."

    If you could show me where you were called a lunatic, and it were in a forum I moderate, I would delete it in a heartbeat. In fact, if you could show me where people have called you a lunatic I would report it to the person who moderates that forum for you. You said that Gib and several others have called you a lunatic - could you please provide a link to those several posts so they can be dealt with?

    You have yet to substantiate any cases of hypocrisy or bias, John. You throw out charges, express your hatred for me, yet never give any evidence for your case.

    Inspite of your mean-spirited attitude toward me John, and a long litany of names you have called me, I continue to love you and pray for you daily.

    umm... sorry to be so mean in a way...

    but look who's talking. who's the one lacking love here? sayin you'll get the press after anybody who comes after 'em. gettin mad at people. probably even hating people.

    hate is murder. murder is sin. ever thought of that?

    you've got fire in your eyes. i'll give you that BJ.

    is that what this is all about? you gettin all up in arms cause some people think God forbids debts and others think he only forbids not paying them?

    if that is what this is all about. i've got one word: wow.

    you've uh. um. got some rethinking to do in that head of yours there BJ. gettin mad over that? i mean... c'mon. there's people dying out there without the savior. why dont you get mad at that? cause 80-90% of christians dont get mad at that. its sad. they focus on grace. without truth. and feed it to the wolves. but theres always a catch. aint there.

    little off topic. sorry.

    depressed economy eh. so you tried to get people outside Cali to understand a depressed economy.

    two words: holy smack.

    you want to understand depressed economy? GO TO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. maybe you'll get it then.

    wanna know how much my three person family is in debt? $150 Grand.
    wanna know how we're down to below $20 grand in 3 years i think it is?

    we think.

    wanna know how you can get out of your measily $4,500 bucks? (cause ALOT of more people are WAY more in debt then you are)

    since you claim to have a job. and apparently save.

    THINK AND PAY IT OFF AND STOP GETTING UP IN ARMS AT US FOR YOUR DEBT.

    if ya can't do that. walk to mexico with a few bucks for food. bring a back pack for a sleeping bag to carry. mexico's a third world country aint it?

    Gekko,

    John's problem is not his debt, it is only a symptom. It is obvious by his behaviour here that he is a young man who is hurting. What he needs is our prayers and our love.

    I am trusting that others will join me in praying for him. We already have a few who have said they will pray for him, do we have any others?

    Bible John fails to realize how much latitude he is being given on this board.

    Any nonBaptist who acted this way would be banned. I know 'cause I've been there.

    Dude, you don't like it here? The internet is a big place. Go somewhere else.

    Baptists who act this way would also be banned.

    Even if that fate befalls John, would you all please pray for him?

    You whine and cry about being in debt and then talk about all the things you have bought. Maybe this is why you are deeply in debt.

    What was his infatuation with Hank Hanegraaf? He made it out as he spoke to him daily or something. This makes me question Hank, now... :laugh:

    Since Bible John is now banned, could we please close this thread since it really serves no purpose but to kick a guy who is no longer here to even defend himself?

    Webdog,

    Hey, I finally found the word that defines this exchange to a "T":

    Futile: 1. Having no useful result. 2. Trifling and frivolous; idle.

    Solomon actually said it best, no offence to Daniel Webster, "If a wise man contend with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest."

    There is such a temptation to waste time blathering about nothing and accomplishing nothing, isn't there? I suppose if we really wanted to follow Scripture, we simply wouldn't put even a big toe in futile debates at all. "And that ye study to be quiet and to work with your own hands as we commanded you."

    Ciela

    P.S. Apologies to Joseph, I was composing my post around the same time you were.

    ...and while we're at it, let's close all of the other threads that "kick" Rick Warren and the like, too, as they are not here to defend themselves.

    I too, am praying for BJ to find the maturity and peace he so desperately needs. At least he got his wish about being banned.
