That is what I have done and I still get attacked but much of the scripture needs no interpriting and sharing a verse or a series of verses then giving my opinion on those verses is not espousing my view as infallable, but if someone takes it that way then the fault is theirs for seeking conflict where none exists.

I second that notion: So if spreading the good news is something to get attack for, by all means include me in the arrogant, obnoxious, intolerant (among other things) category! I'm in!!
