.........I do not hate anyone but I am simply exposing that which is sinful as the bible tells me to do.
I was wondering just how you were going to respond to what I had to say here. I'm disappointed, but not surprised. I've abridged your message and
dropped the quote from my own in the interest of emphasis and space. I'm sure any curious reader can click to see the full text of both.
First, for someone with no hate toward Wiccans as individuals, I find your repeated references to myself and those who believe as I do as Satan
Worshipers to contradict your attempt at a kind word there. In the Christian faith, as I've come to know it by a family rich with Catholics and
Christians of other denominations, there are few things MORE offensive or combative than to call someone a Devil Worshipper. I'll take your comments
in the context they would reasonably be seen in, given your obvious devout Faith in your own life.
Second. I won't sit here and explain or justify my Faith to you or anyone else. That isn't being difficult, that is enjoying my right in America to
believe in anything I want or nothing at all and never have to feel that it requires explanation. I do not ask you to justify your belief in the
Bible, nor would I challenge a Muslim to justify his adherence to the Islamic Faith. You started your thread with what started as 2 and filled in with
3 pages of direct hate and vitriol toward Wicca specifically, but anyone who isn't Christian in general. That puts the challenge on you, not me, and
so far you have fallen quite short of the burden of supporting your position.
Third, I appreciate knowing that you believe you are 'here to expose' things like Tarot Card readers and other forms of worship you personally find
objectionable. I'm not sure what there is to expose, since I see no one hiding their practices when they choose to talk about it at all, but more
power to you. I know to avoid any threads you have authored going forward.
If those 3 pages you wrote to start the thread represent a beacon of light, I dare say you need someone to check your bulb. It seems to be a bit off
and may need servicing. I'm not seeing light, but something quite different here.
Last, I don't recall seeing anything in the Bible (and yes, I HAVE read it) that tells the Faithful to go forth and spread the word of Christ by
directly challenging and attacking an entire community of people with blind statements and rather weak arguments, to be kind about my descriptions. I
am aware of the 'directives' to go forth and spread the word, but again, this was combative from the first couple sentences of your first paragraph
in the thread. WWJD is something to consider. I understand Christ to have been a man of peace and reason in the face of opposition, not provocation
and deliberate baiting into a fight. Maybe that is just me.
Anyway... I don't get into running battles on threads. I won't start now. I did make a rather direct reply to your OP and this is to your obligatory
reply which followed. Here ends my involvement in your thread, as I have said my peace. Have a good evening, and I hope you find some peace yourself.
You seem deeply troubled in life and I do feel concern for you on that point. Take Care.
