Spoken like a true fence sitter. How many gurus do you worship now?? People eat it up because it's the truth. Nice try, FB but you have to do better than this to "offend" me. If this little tidbit didn't offend me, then you're definitely wasting your time:

Do I hear the voice of the Lord speaking through you?

Actually I agree with sanspeur as posts like yours by you and others have made me question multiple times if I want to be lumped into the same group as you.

Alas I do not want to be in lumped into the same group as you. I prefer on this board not to be labled a "true" Christian as that has negative connotations here (in my view) that puts up barriers between me and other people.

So sanspeur is absolutely correct. Please continue to rejoice in your self-crapulence of a doctrine. Huddle together and pat each other on the back. Enjoy your hubris of "True Christianity" that you so love to blanket yourself in. You make for a cute little brood that expouses exclusion while complaining about others from your self imposed cross.

I'm not to worried about your view. I'm much more concerned about the Lord's view, because we all will stand before Him and be judged. Just something to think about.

Big T,

If Jesus couldn't get through to the Pharisees & Legalists when He was walking on this earth, why should we think that we can?

It's too bad that they can not see their hard hearts.

They simply can not see that they are wrong.

Good. Although I didn't ask if you were. I do appreciate extra knowledge though. I'll file that in the ole "file 13" part of the brain.

Great. Thanks for that. I wasn't sure if a Christian was concerned about the Lord's view. Thanks for clearing that up. Crystal clear now.

I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and I have need of nothing' - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked - REVELATION 3:15-17
