...for those that have the all-knowing wisdom and mastery of the Gospel to step in and correct those of us who are not quite as intellectually sharp, or Scripturally literate when we share our views and opinions??? It is apparent that while all of us have been given gifts and talents, some see themselves as being far more superior, blessed and led of the Holy Spirit when it comes to having the RIGHT answer! Of course, we need to yield to their far more superior ways, or we face being humiliated, ridiculed or accused of being incorrect! There are also much worse things that can happen to those who challenge the wise counsel of some, because to do so means we are maybe, "Not Baptist enough" or associated with TBN . Then to rub salt in the wound, the less superior sheep will face the need to get a life in line with their overall wisdom, or through their spiritual enlightenment whatever else they deem necessary to remain on the roost as king of debaters!!! After all, words only hurt when directed in their direction. They can say and insinuate whatever they want, because the rules of debate protect and cover all their sin (oops! I meant sarcasm, sorry)! And in the end, we can leave the forum, or repent and burn sack clothes to right our fleshly wrongs! We should forget the fact that every time we enter a forum thread, we open ourselves up to the potential for public ridicule and spiritual insinuations from those who are higher and more mightier than us lowly sheep. Each of us lowly sheep should humble ourselves before the cyber feet and thrones of those self-appointed scholars, who never flinch when they are challenged because (in the end) they know much better than us, because their word is kin to Gods. :tear: Of course, I remain grateful for having a soundingboard like this forum to share what's on my heart. I was simply wondering out loud if anyone else is feeling a little beat up, from time to time, like me? And to beat one member to the punch, so to speak, If this makes you feel better, I'll say it for you, "The dude is whining and crying, AGAIN!" Now does that make you feel better? At least, you don't have to take the time to send me a sarcastic response!
