Arrogant chest pounding?LOL!

You're right in that I don't have a clue as to who specifically taught you what you believe.But are you seriously telling me that you came up with this on your own?Is that question,asked twice now,too much for you?Or do you just hate to admit that you were taught it by someone else?

No, I am not saying I came up with it on my own. You are the one claiming you used "independent thinking" to find the truth. No, I read the Bible to find it.

Exactly my point.Yet you spent the previous posts trying to pretend that I somehow could not know this and demanding that I tell you who it was that I knew taught you,and that I didn't have a clue since I couldn't tell you.LOL.

And yes,when I was taught evangelical Christianity from childhood,Southern Baptist style,and moved away from that to a more adult understanding of Christianity,I did so through independent thinking.It certainly was not accomplished by accepting everything I was taught without questions.

Nothing wrong with calling a spade a spade, if the shoe fits wear it

Even though an ET'er just means someone who believes in eternal torment I guess the "er" at the end does come out as "tormentor" in a way.

Maybe a better term would be "ETB" (Eternal Torment Believer). ?

No, your point was to claim that someone told me, and when I asked who it was, you had no answer. No surprise, because you couldn't possibly know.

Quit pretending you know something about me, when you obviously don't have the faintest clue.

I am done with you nonesense.

You are to come up with any name you want. Knock yourself out. I don't care.

URs believe in torture, just not eternal. Shall we call you torturer too?

What do you mean "believe in torture?" If you mean that God tortures, I don't believe that at all.
