Too late. You have revealed what you think.
Not very forgiving, are you? First you assign a self-serving interpretation to my expression, as if no one could love all
folk, common and
uncommon alike. And yes by doing that you do presume to judge my heart.
Then when I try to smooth our communication by trying to use another expression, you are devoid of grace.
I am not claiming to judge your heart.
But you have judged. Just not in so many words.
Every time a Christian judges something he has no right to judge, a demon gets its wings.
Your actions are those of a foe.
My actions are those of a debate partner. In that sense, sure I'm a foe. But I wish you no ill will and I don't want to cause you emotional harm.
But I am determined to balance your exoteric eschatology with an occasional post of my own. I am determined to be respectful to you regardless of the
accusations you hurl at me. If I occasionally fail and show disrespect I ask your forgiveness. Like anyone I too get frustrated.
I have already pointed out that continuing them while simultaneously proclaiming friendship would be hypocrisy.
All you're doing here is playing verbal games.
You can treat me as a foe if you want. I will continue to consider you my spiritual baby brother.
