Well as I frequently have tried unsuccessfully to point out to the would-be judgers and speakers of truth here . . . Jesus KNEW what the real truth was . . . we cannot ever be THAT certain . . . which is why we were chastised NOT to judge one another. Of course . . . if you feel comfortable assuming the mantle of infallibility that was Jesus' . . . go ahead . . . but there might be a price ("Depart from me . . .")

Telling the truth is never unkind. It is what a true friend does in the name of love. If you really care about someone, I would think you would have to tell them the truth, otherwise, you are just endorsing their sin. There are many kinds of love. I prefer the type of love Jesus showed.
That is our charge . . . to show the love Jesus taught us by his example. The problem is . . . we are NOT Jesus . . . so there needs to be some humility and caution involved with truth-saying . . . lest we incorrectly believe their soul would be endangered by not hearing the truth when it is some triviality that needn't even be mentioned.

but aren't you doing the same you accuse Sandgirl of doing?, are you not judging her of claiming to know the truth therefore she is wrong in your opinion because no can know the truth except Jesus. If nothing is infallible then there is nothing infallible in what you have to say either so you have no basis to argue with Sandgirl "on the basis" that nothing is infallible furthermore if you make any type of statement then you are contradicting your own fallibility by making an infallible statement of knowing something to be true, "that nothing is infallible"

So why are we having this debate?

I sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding I may have caused on this thread....In this area of the country, where we are friends with everyone we call each other "hon" or "honey" almost constantly..It is a term of kindness and friendliness..I will be more careful as some may think it is name calling or insulting

Fundie accuses me of it . . . but that is his worst fault . . . judging who is and who is not a Christian so he can dismiss their views . . . he should be more careful about doing such things. I am a Christian because of my belief in Jesus . . . whatever Fundie and his literalist buddies might prefer to believe.
