    You are reversing things Sparko. I try every day to have decent, respectful conversations with the members here. I am simply not allowed to do so. Even if I manage not to be provoked, I must contend with an unending set of attempts to 'knock me off the wagon' as it were. Some of the worst I've just been forced to put on ignore.

    Why you and others cant see that is how it goes I will likely never quite get, but you and I are to this point having a decent discussion in the other thread. So if I hate you, how can that be happening?

    Well I hope you don't hate me. I still consider you a friend, even though we disagree on various topics. I have tried not to insult you or provoke you, but I have still been accused of doing so, so I assumed you disliked me.

    But still it seems that if you feel like everyone is provoking you and attacking you, why do you stick around? I see it causing you stress and your reactions have gotten stronger lately.

    I suppose somebody in your condition could see it that way.



    Keep saying that over and over, Jim, cause it looks like you're even having to convince yourself of that nonsense.



    Praise God for THAT!



    Jim, perhaps you should dial down your own rage and hate before calling somebody else out for making goofy comments.

    Sheeeesh... the log in your own eye....
    Sheesh is right. But notice how you masterfully dance around the argument: He stated that things started to diverge around post 35 or so, then after a few back and forth posts, ox presented the opening, calling it "post 35", which you zeroed in on.

    And you really don't think you are trolling the board?

    Its not like this is an isolated example and a one-off thing.

    I take it Charles addresses your rhetorical techniques you rely on. Now you could ask yourself if there is any substance to it, but that would require a self examination.

    laziness
    Fear
    Conspiracy of silence
    Secret complicity
    Indifference

    Those who take refuge in the difficulty or futility in changing the world

    Those who sidestep the effort and sacrifice required, producing specious reasons of a higher order

    Do those make sense as being consistent with the faith? Are they unduly burdensome?

    Any other thoughts, such as my low intelligence or my inadequacy as a Christian?
    Are those who are in a position to eliminate, or limit, social evils but fail to do so because of inertia, because it is difficult, use specious reasoning really walking in the faith?

    Baptists met, then produced the controversial resolution which seems to endorse CRT and intesectionality.

    But the most basic question on race (and one studiously avoided in the other threads) is whether there is a difference in how Christians view the world, a difference which follows color.

    A better question - is it more important to get off your duff an actually DO something, or just sit around endlessly analyzing it?
