    Luke2427, Heirofsalvation- I think for my part of this both of you misunderstand me. I want no sympathy. It is what it is, and Mrs. A and I deal with it. Truth be told there are much worse things to contend with, and many here are doing so.


    If I may say so, I really hope neither of you are in ministry or medicine if you truly have the attitude toward others displayed in this thread. Your seeming indifference to others' limitations and lack of empathy are not something to be admired.

    I will leave it at that.

    You are absolutely right.

    I don't know why I try to fight these battles. It is a handica....


    OOOOOOOPS!


    I mean it is a "Super-Dupperly, otherwise Gifted, and Utterly gifted and blessed beyond measure" thing of mine.

    LIMITATIONS!!!!!!!!!


    LIMITATIONS!!!!!!!??????


    Why you must sacrifice infants to MOLECH!!!

    I bet your favorite pass time is stomping kittens and puppies into a nice pate with the heels of your baby seal leather boots to spread on your Ritz Crackers that you stole from a local food bank that feeds homeless children!

    And, no, this is not an exaggerated representation of how you and others are acting towards my comments on this thread.

    It is an ACCURATE portrayal of the sense and reasoning of your posts.

    NOBODY said ANYTHING that any deaf people should take offense to and I think it is sorry and low down for you to paint me as though I am uncompassionate.

    Sorry and low down.

    HS, since your post there are no comments on the OP... I didn't listen to the recording but the summary given seems to resonate with my disappointment, predominantly in fundamentalists who are proudly anti-intellectual.

    Which Fruit of the Spirit is displayed in this post?

    You obviously have issues.

    Which fruit of the spirit questions my spirituality?

    Which fruit of the spirit accuses me of having issues?

    The sword cuts both ways, Arbo.

    You have the audacity to accuse us of being so uncompassionate that we are unqualified to care for sick people without any warrant whatsoever.

    Then you accuse me of having issues because I say you are out of line for calling me uncompassionate.

    And THEN you accuse me of not having the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT!

    This is blatant self-righteous hypocrisy.

    1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

    It is required that a man be found faithful, not limited.

    Faithfulness
    I've been thinking recently about how glad I am that certain visionaries refused to listen to the frowning crowd on the pier. I'm glad, for example:
    * that Edison didn't give up on the light bulb even though his helpers seriously doubted the thing would ever work.
    * that Luther refused to back down when the church doubled her fists and clenched her teeth.
    * that Michaelangelo kept pounding and painting, regardless of those negative put‑downs.
    * that Lindbergh decided to ignore what everyone else had said was ridiculous and flirting with death.
    * that Douglas MacArthur promised, during the darkest days of World War II, "I shall return".
    * that Papa Ten Boom said "Yes" to frightened Jews who needed a safe refuge, a hiding place.
    * that the distinguished Julliard School of Music would see beyond the braces and wheelchair and admit an unlikely violin student named Perlman.
    * that Tom Sullivan decided to be everything that he could possibly be even though he was born blind.
    * that the Gaithers made room in their busy lives for a scared young soprano who would one day thrill Christendom with "We Shall Behold Him."
    * that Fred Dixon continued to train for the decathlon ‑‑ and finished the course ‑‑ even though critics told him he was over the hill.
    * that our Lord Jesus held nothing back when He left heaven, lived on earth, and went for it ‑‑ all the way to the cross ‑‑ and beyond.
    You could add to the list. You may even belong on the list. If so, hats off to you.

    I was reading through this thread again, and I came to this post of mine (No. 30):

    My reference to Proverbs 15:1 gave me pause, because my last few posts were not soft answers. They were harsh, and they stirred up anger. Apologies are warranted.

    Luke2427- My opinion of your behavior remains the same, but I apologize to you for the argumentativeness of my last couple posts.

    To everyone who reads this thread, especially visitors, I also apologize for the same reason. There is no excuse.

    Yes, I think you are correct. The speaker laments this. It is a very strong message which asks some direct questions to Christian leaders, nameing them specifically. You should listen, and pass it on to any pastors or academics that you know.
