Proverbs 30:14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

This is about the internet generation.

ummmm....I didn't mean to sound condescending, dude. I was just trying to say something a little more than "welcome to cfnet."

I would really like people to stop helping me Christ_empowered and do something about themselves for a change.
What are you trying to say, Realchild? It sounds like this thought has some background to it and might not be directed solely at Christ_Empowered's welcoming comment. Are you getting a lot of pressure on how to be a Christian, or around a lot of people who aren't living up to a potential?

It was just a guess as to why you reacted to Christ_Empowered the way you did. but to answer your question, at least for me, I'm not getting pressure on how to be a good Christian, nor do I look at people based on standards of how they should be.

Through out my life I've gotten enough pressure on how to be in so many other areas in life, usually concerning aspects that I was not the strongest at the time, or things that I did not think were as important to me. The thing is though, sometimes people give pressure because they care about you. On the other hand though, I don't want to judge a person's worth or potential. It's not because I don't care, it's because often I struggle to be just average, or just get enough to get by. Someone else's potential or their current sitution aren't the things I try to judge.

Just my approach. If I can ask, what do you want out of this website?

Hey, all I was doing was trying to talk. Maybe open you up to see where you're coming from and try and sow some peace. But if all you want is some short snappy statements as your answers and avoid real discussion, then I'll just move on. Whatever the reason your here, whether it's a place to talk about Christian matters, find fellowship, seek advise, or anything else under the sun, just keep in mind that your not the only person here. Nor the only on that matters. Be respectful.

Ask yourself this question, who just attacked first?

You or me?

Should I then attack you back?

No

Then what should I do?

I can see this is going to work out well.
You're a staff member can you do something about this person, they have been very divisive towards me since I started this thread.

I'm sure that is obvious to all of you.

Welcome.

Given that you have a sinful nature, don't be surprised when others sin.

Also, if you have a problem concerning a specific member, please take it up with the staff privately by either starting a thread in the Talk With The Staff forum or reporting a particular post.

I'm sorry if it seemed like an attack. I'm leaving this thread. It's all yours.

I can't see any attack here. Let's just all cool down and try to move on. :)
