    You know that not true, lol.

    The way it usually unfolds is you say something incredibly ridiculous, I comment on it, you cannot respond, and then you start personal attacks.

    So show me where this gobbledygook is?

    There is a place which is more your, and others who complain about thorough discussion, style...it's called facebook.

    I think that would be right up your alley.

    ;)


    God bless.

    It's strange to see someone discourage discussion that is not the typical facebook chatter we see from many.

    Do you really think people are going to learn anything by having chit chat about the Word of God?

    And what is it that we see from these people who like to chit chat?

    Backbiting.

    Questionable Doctrine.

    Disruption.

    So pat yourself on the back, my friend, and count yourself as fulfilling the will of God by discouraging people from learning.

    Not sure what anyone would find funny, much less Christian...about that kind of attitude.


    God bless.

    Mm-hmm, because you never post long posts, do you Poncho. lol

    It's funny that the only people who have a problem with long posts are those who have a problem addressing the issues.

    Of course, I can't expect everyone who comes to a Christian Doctrinal Discussion and Debate forum to actually be here for the purpose of discussion and debate.

    Like I said, facebook would be a better place for some, because there you get short, random statements which are usually personal and have no eternal value...whatsoever.

    Me, I take discussion seriously.


    God bless.

    You're entitled to your own opinion of course but it shouldn't take three pages to state it, IMHO.

    Perhaps you would like to point out which three page response I have done that bothers you, Poncho.

    Be glad to take a look and see if it is actually three pages, and whether it is the doctrine that bothers you...not the length.

    And if anyone wants to take a look at the chit chatters of this forum and the type of posting they do, I would suggest a look at the thread...

    https://www.baptistboard.com/threads/what-else-do-members-hold-in-agreement-with-papists.96155/

    This is a superb example of the school yard mentality that those who live in a blogisphere perpetuated continually on this forum.

    In that thread we see derailment, attack, and unchristian behavior.

    I am wondering just how the new owner will respond to this kind of "Christian" posting.

    Boys, there's a new Sherriff in town, and you better be praying that he does not start exercising a little Church discipline, because it may be facebook will be your new stomping grounds. I can tell you this, that some of you have lasted this long on any Christian forum is simply a testament to the lack of discipline in the Body of Christ today.

    Anyone want to challenge my previous statements about backbiting? That is apparent enough in this thread, but any of you care for me to review that thread and see who it is that dishes it out but can't take it?

    Go ahead, put me on ignore. That is just as well appreciated as any other means of having this kind of nonsense stopped.

    And sorry for having more than one thought to digest, I guess I am just not very considerate of your needs.

    ;)


    God bless.

    I won't put you on my ignore list. I don't have one and don't intend to start one just for you. :)

    You having more than one thought to digest or not being considerate of other's needs doesn't really bother me Darrell a lot of us here are guilty of that. I would have to admit that your habit of accusing others of doing the same things you do puts me off and makes me less inclined to interact with you though.

    I tried having the above discussion with you but you insisted on telling me what my argument was and wouldn't give me a chance to actually tell you what it was. It was then that I realized that you're method of "debate" or "threshing things out" is to make up the other guy's argument for him as you go along to assure yourself a "victory" in the end.

    That's my opinion., other's may vary.

    lol...don't see anything of any great length there. And a few of your own almost as long.

    And before I did even those short posts you ask...

    If you want long, you might check out a few between Zaac and myself. Now he was a worthy antagonist. Can't accuse that man of being lazy, and this indicates his passion for what he believes.

    By the way, you're not the "percho" that has been involved in the born again thread, are you?

    And I'll check back in the morning. Have to get going.

    God bless.

    I just realized there was some humor there (three page rule)...lol.

    Good one, Poncho, good one.

    Now I just need to know if that was intentional.


    God bless.

    Actually it was intended as hyperbole I figured you were familiar with that particular rhetorical device."Lol".

    I don't suppose you see your own "back biting" and name calling in that thread either. o_O

    No thanks I believe I'll pass on any discussions that go on between you and Zaac. I'm afraid that would be more than I could endure.

    Care to point out the backbiting?

    And still wanting to know where a three pager can be found. Nothing in that thread very long.


    God bless.

    You don't seem to have any trouble spotting and pointing out "back biting" in other's posts so I'm sure you are qualified enough to judge your own posts, but then again . . .

    No your posts were relatively short in that thread. Which is why I picked that particular one I was trying to be considerate of other's needs. "lol"

    Okay TTYL it was fun.

    Sorry about that folks I couldn't resist digging into Darrell a little bit. He's more fun to pick on than most folks here and besides he hasn't put me on his ignore list yet. :D

    Why does anyone feel it's necessary to pick on anyone on this Board?

    Why do people pick on Zaac or Crabby or Gina? Why do people call other's names? Why do people accuse other's of doing the same things they do? Why are some people punished for insulting other's while others seem to be able to do it with impunity? Why do people reply to posts with snide remarks? Why do people act like they're better than others? Why do people join in ridiculing a poster after one starts it?

    Why have so many good people left this board?

    Here, I'll walk you through it. Single click on my avatar and choose the ignore button. Just that simple. Even a linguistics geek can figure it out.

    Actually, I am qualified to judge my own posts, but...what does that have to do with the charge of a three pager (hyperbole or no)?

    I enlarge the Scripture I present in my posts and this can make the posts seem large, but many of them are not. Much of the time I will break up a post to make it easier to respond. '

    It seems to me that some think it is okay to say what they want but when someone directly addresses them they get bent out of shape. And that's when everything but the points and Scripture are targeted.

    Let's face it, our beliefs are something that tend to make us emotional, and self control can be lost in the midst of Doctrinal Debate. We have to be on our guard.


    They are relatively short in every thread. Most of my posts can be read in a few minutes.

    The only question I have is why is it that people say they are here to discuss yet when someone does that...they suddenly want quips?


    Nice try.

    ;)

    Yup.

    Feel free, that's what I am here for. Though I prefer discussions centered on more Theological topics.

    Getting the warm fuzzies again, amigo...

    ;)


    I never have, and never will do that, my friend.

    That just seems to say "There is someone I can't (or won't) communicate with."

    There is not one person I will ever give up on in discussion. If I am going to ignore someone (and there are people who are pointless to try to have a meaningful conversation with, though that does not mean that at a later date communication might not be possible), I am going to leave it open to re-engage at a future time.

    Now, this post will take about a minute to read. It may seem long because of spacing, but it is not.

    ;)


    God bless.
