Good article.

Let's hope both sides learn from it.

Reactions in the flesh - let it die. ....appropriate.

Wow, Mystic, you comment to me about "reveling" Mike letting his emotions finely come out, rightly so, as he was being provoked to the point of retaliation (by the way I was shocked to witness Mike saying such, true story ) and yet when your dear guru post such hatred toward other souls and says awful things to ppl and thinks nothing about what he says in harming his neighbor .
And you always giving a thumbs up with "awesome post, pastor." too encourage such evil behavior is definitely is a lack of "Agape" love for your guys neighbor's, you think ! Regardless if such ppl YOU call fundamentalist they're still your neighbor, ya know !

Something just isn't right when you can post and make such a comment to me as above and yet encourage such wickedness coming from your guru !

Now what is wrong with this picture .

Reading it, and examining my own heart, I know I also have a lot of "dying" to do.

That isn't the way we are to respond to conflict, Cyber. It was a fleshly reaction, not a Christ-centered response.

We all do really. Silly as it may sound, I think the world would be a much better place if everyone just made it a point to hug someone every day. But most people myself included don't want to break out of that comfort zone and personal physical safety zone. It's a form of selfishness.

Actually, it was a simple statement of fact regarding one of the two biggest hypocrites on this forum whose posts are anything but 'Christ-centered.' Nothing more and nothing less. You might want to actually go back and read his many posts on this forum.

Hugs aren't silly. Hugs heal, or at least help the process.

*hugs*

It's not about what people say to/about you. It's all about your response. I understand coming temporarily unhinged. Believe me when I say that I do. You have no idea haha. But that isn't how we're supposed to respond. I'm pointing the most fingers at my self as I tell you this, just so you know.

Really, so all your responses and quite a few other's reaction in this thread has been so Christ-centered, and so full of love and understanding to other's, not even ! Cause if it was some like Mike would not react to loving post . No there has been nothing but certain individuals provoking because other's don't agree with what they believe.

Hmmm, and before you go around trying to correct other's why don't you read up in the book of 1Cor.13 it has a lot to say in speaking about love not provoking .

Another thing just to remind you, you have no authority whatsoever in my life to be trying too correct what I say and do. So geekigurl, if I were you I would just move on and mind your own business, deal with your self and leave other's alone, okie, dokie !

But Mike that is a different story ! Come on don't you know they have a pass that gives them the permission to insult, falsely accuse, name call and especially come into a Christian forum and post, starting a thread knowing darn well it will do nothing but cause strife among the ppl !
