    On a message board such as this it is good to be able to identify this sin and avoid it;

    Misrepresenting the theological position of another person would fall under this commandment. So would labeling others as having theological positions they deny such as Pelagian, Arminian, Semi-Pelagian etc.

    THERE ARE MANY CRIMINALS IN JAIL WHO CLAIM THEY ARE INNOCENT. SOME WHO ARE IN THESE CAMPS AVOID THE LABEL WHICH IF RIGHTLY EARNED BY THEM.

    The Commandment is against "false witness"

    You are just seeking to be contentious. You snide remarks and lack of any meaningful theological stance does not give you any moral high ground to make your proud denunciations.
    There is nothing low about the comment except your lame response to it. rather than involve yourself in the actual OP you look to divert and make your snide cryptic comments , now you are going to disappear and show up in another thread, not to offer anything constructive but to wait for another chance to offer your drive by one line posts.

    Why not take a stand somewhere RM...any stand...even if it is wrong , would be better than sneaking around lurking to make your little nasty , rude comments.

    Take a good look at the subject matter of the OP, then look at Iconoclast's post I quoted.

    The very definition of irony. I'm sure Icon doesn't have a clue as to what he's just done.

    Whooo..You compare solid Christians who refuse your personal labels with convicted criminals and you say I am the one seeking to be contentious? This is an example of the delusional rhetoric of contentious Calvinists and why they have such a bad reputation among Christians. It is far and it is wide. It is also a prime example of why there is so much contention on this board.

    Your comment was contentious, unnecessary, inflammatory and unChristian. It was nothing but rhetoric intended to demean those with whom you disagree. Shame on you.

    You have an agenda which is now exposed. My comments went right past your understanding......the analogy of the criminal was to show that even someone who is guilty of the crime can claim they did not do it.....we have on this board, dispensationalists who claim they are not. semi peligians who say they are not, arminians who say they are not ,etc....that is a fact, not false witness..

    You just entered here to be disruptive which is something we have all seen.

    Yes...take a good look at it. It is a true statement and not false in any way.....show the falsehood....

    If you want an example of false witness here is RM fresh off the keyboard;

    The only irony here is that you and RM step up and offer an example of the OP...in drive by form of course.

    So do I have an agenda or did your comments go past my understanding? Your analogy is inflammatory. Comparing solid Christians who you oppose to criminals in any context is unChristian. Period. Your agenda is now exposed. You flame anyone not a Calvinist.

    No what we all have seen is when I call you on your junk you accuse me of this because you have nothing else. You cannot defend your poor behavior. Again you have reached a new low.

    "Rm

    yes you do
    yes they did...you still miss the point
    the analogy is fine, you just do not like it....people rationalize to cover up
    it was not a comparison....it was an analogy that you do not like.

    I did not mention calvinism anywhere in the thread......this is your agenda, it is on your mind everyday. You cannot wait to accuse a cal of your usual "rude, arrogant rant"....because the cals make short work of your posts...then you say...how arrogant.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say..... You accuse me and cannot back it up....you get support from ITL ...another anti-cal as if that makes it okay.....neither one of you add or improve the OP......just attack...every post an attack...

    I "accuse you"??? No.... I state what is quite plain and obvious....if you want "proof"....start a poll and ask if what i say about you has not been noticed and commented on by many on BB.....

    You have 30000 posts....could you show 3 that are not negative.....


    i have nothing to defend...I have spoken true judgment....I was not expecting this attack so soon, but I will not back down from your foul posting...I will expose it openly.

    In my world...drive by posting is what you do most often.....

    it is a one line , maybe two line post...making an attack, not baking it up...then hiding like an ostrich when you get responded to...

    You said:

    we have on this board, dispensationalists who claim they are not. semi peligians who say they are not, arminians who say they are not ,etc....that is a fact, not false witness.

    When someone says, "I'm not a peligianist" and you reply YES YOU ARE! that is the very definition of false witness. You don't get to go around labeling people with labels they know don't apply to them.

    Maybe you can give an example of what you are talking about ITL.
    If you feel you have an example post it.
    Are you saying you have not seen dispensationalists in this last two months alone, ....deny...they hold to that system???
    As soon as OR zeroed in on them...then they claimed to not believe that system. Do you deny this???

    I haven't been following those threads. But it doesn't matter. If someone labels someone as being such-and-such and they deny it and if you continue to say the same thing about them, that is false witness.

    I'm sure you wouldn't take kindly if someone were to say, "Iconoclast holds to the doctrines of grace and God's absolute sovereignty and control of everything, therefore Iconoclast believes God is the author of sin."

    For example, I don't know anyone on BB that is an Arminian (and that definition includes the possibility of someone losing their salvation) yet that term is used with some regularity to describe many here on BB. That's false witness.

    You are a Dispensationalist if you claim it. You are an Arminian if you claim it. You are a Pelegian if you claim it
    Well you know if you deny what you really are then you are like criminals who deny who they are.

    Then you don't understand what Arminianism is. Even the Remonstrance did not say a saved person could lose their salvation.
