    I guess we can say that pedantry wasn't something you gave up for Lent.

    Lent doesn't start for me until Monday.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    It seems all you do is go around correcting other people's posts. At first I thought you were just being a bit humorous, but you are serious. You really need to get a better hobby. It is overly pedantic of you. This is an internet debate forum, not English 101.

    No offence is/was intended. I make grammatical and punctuational errors on occasion and am happy to later correct them or have them corrected by others if need be.
    ‘To say that God deliberately brings about a sinful human race so that he may [unconditionally] elect some to salvation, and then deliberately sends the nonelect to hell so that his saving gace may appear all the more glorious, is the opposite of grace.’

    You are free to maintain your opinions and misjudgements. I have nothing further to add here.

    You do know you just replied to an accusation of being condescending and annoying by exhibiting precisely that behavior, right?
