    Anderson conflates the word with the Word. He, rightly, worships the Word but fails to understand the distinction between the word and the Word so he worships the word as the Word.

    But before you beat him up over it remember the discussion here on the BB regarding the difference between an Apostle (one of the 12) and an apostle (a gospel messenger)? Some of you made the same erroneous conflation, just with a different word. :)

    The problem most people have when dealing with Steve Anderson is three fold:

    #1. He is extremely intelligent. (I would estimate him in the low to mid genius range.)

    #2. He is very, very articulate. He can express himself very well.

    #3. He is a remarkable autodidact with an amazing memory. He has read extensively and remembers most of what he reads. Including memorizing most of the New Testament.

    Here is a discussion he had with James White. They disagree, but do so agreeably. It is well worth watching.

    I need to look online for a resource. It had to do with "the Word was God"....

    Which sermon?

    I am not a fan of David Cloud, but he has a small book regarding Anderson. It's completely free of charge.
    https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/downloads/What_About_Steven_Anderson.pdf

    This is a compilation of Steven Anderson rants where he hopes people die.

    In the Viedo (post # 42) with Dr. James White

    Anderson states that he doubts a persons Christianity if he does not understand the KJV,
    especially if that individual uses the NIV.

    One other thing - he seemed very soft with Dr White - seems as though he was backing down on some of his deeply held preaching points.

    Let us remember that Scripture says Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived, but ole Solly was not wise enough to stay true to God, which is amazing to me, as he was a witness to some of God's power and directly affected by it in God's granting him his intelligence. So it's no surprise to me that Anderson's tractor doesn't always make full pulls.

    I think I have watched that part of his sermon wherein he calls out pedophiles, sex offenders and gays to be put to death by government institutions.

    Not that I defend him, but basing on what I have heard from him, he doesn't advocate violence as means of justice (by taking the law on own hands), but only by a government that should and must follow God's laws.

    I agree.

    Way back when I started posting on message boards such as this one, and later on blogs, the common practice was to use a "handle" rather than your name. I have tried to change all mine to where at some point it reflects my identity, as a constant reminder that I am willing to be held accountable for what I say/write.

    Some people have no desire to disclose their identity if for no other reason than to prevent maliciousness slander by some poster body on a board going to the local assembly and causing some disunion. Such was the case in a few board members ministry. Though unfounded, the disruption to the ministry was alarming.

    Personally, I hold my identity so that I am not esteemed more highly than is warranted or desired.

    It is worthless for someone to tout degrees and learning if they are only to puff up and not used to truly edify. Such are foolish babblers who cause only disputes and disharmony rather than seeking the truth of Scriptures.

    As I have become more frail I more often submit and rely on the good kindness of those scholars of the BB to hold me accountable, to redirect me if I should wander from the truth.

    Therefore it is not without cause that "handles" may be used.

    I'm in that situation.

    I have shared a number of personal items over the years that involve other people and I don't want to expose them to embarrassment or harassment.

    I decided a long time ago that hiding behind an anonymous screen name was not a good thing for me to do.

    I use my own name, and my own picture, and list my home church by name. I can't imagine anyone from the Baptist Board being vile enough to try to hurt me by contacting the leadership of my home church, but I am also confident that the leadership knows me well enough to know that my life is an open book.

    I realize I have a reputation among some of the BB posters of being grumpy and not as domesticated as they might wish, but those who know me in person know that most of the time I am laughing while typing. (Just look at my picture - see that big grin? No, that is not a snarl, it is a grin!) I don't take myself, nor the BB posters, nor the BB itself as seriously as some do. To me it is a diversion. Something to do as I while away the hours and days until the Lord calls me home But the forum probably has very few eternal consequences.

    Very few people change their minds on strongly held opinions due to interaction on the BB. I know of no Calvinists who have become Arminians. I know of no Arminians who have become Calvinists. I know of no KJVOs who have accepted the modern translations, and know of no proponents of modern translations who have become KJVO, due to the BB.

    It is an internet forum, folks. It is not real life. :)

    The aggressive poster(s) can be the catalyst for emotional and mental anguish.

    Some would appoint that grief as immaturity, or not being manly, or some other avoidance statement rather than a genuine recognition that words do actually hurt.

    Some, especially those who have survived great personal trauma, perhaps need confrontations of tenderness rather than exploiting weakness.

    One of the areas in which I more often often fail is not sensing in the writing of others that which is more easily discerned in person.

    Few are the writing of both the NT letters, and early letters to believers not included in the NT that do not have both healthy warnings, instructions, and encouragement.

    If you are referring to who I think you are I am not convinced he was ever really settled on his soteriology. He seems to bounce from hither to yon. :)

    I think that is one of the greatest problems from which we all suffer in electronic communication

    One of the reasons I prefer Faceboook and PuritanBoard.

    Frankly, I don't have agreement with either.

    The facebook is a heathen group that has no standard by to destroy.

    Puritan Board (not the chicken company) is a group directly under the Presbyterian authority. I have a problem with that bunch's doctrine, and although they "tolerate" Baptists, are not in doctrinal agreement. So, there is no ground of fellowship.

    Actually, the Facebook groups I belong to are good Christian groups with Godly people, edifying conversations, and great moderators.

    Your loss.
