I love all my brother's and sister's from orthodox it's just that they find traditions are more important to them then is obeying and following the bible. Other than that they add sacraments as a means for salvation by works when ephesians 2:8 speaks about grace through faith not by works, traditions, etc. They don't follow the principles of the bible but rather create their own ideas about what is right and wrong.
Sounds RC? Well I am one fundamentalist that doesn't put tradition over scripture afterall tradition comes from scripture and I agree there are fundamentalist that do these things.

Yes...Stirring the room is not the same without you and I might add Alpha too. We get snarky with one another but that is only because we truly love the truth and our love for God.

We do love the Lord, don't we? What an awesome God we serve.

Maybe we killed this thread with our love fest? Terribly sorry if so. Please pass the smelling salts around.

The OP is simply argumentative ... Really fundamentalist, you are a Calvinist right?

I find the OP to be truly ironic ...

That's ok but that doesn't make me any less Christian or any less loving, that is your opinion just as it is mine that you are wrong and recognize we are not brothers in Christ but not in a snarky way but a truthful way.

I guess the question is, if you think that torturing the vast majority of humans who have ever lived or who will ever live for ever is a good thing does that exemplify love?

I don't argue from that standpoint, that is illogical to me because who's understanding of exemplifying love?

I go on the basis that I recognize God is a God of love-a holy, righteous love that our best still can't come close to His worst so if God does anything and I mean anything that I in my fallen, finite state may deem unfair, horrible then I the creation am being self righteous, arrogant in thinking my way is better than God's
