Amen to everythingGood morning Rajesh.
By “You Too”, do you mean to say that you are disappointed I do not agree with your overall view of Paul? If so, then yes, me too.
I do not know why that would sadden you. I do not force my convictions on you, are you saddened because you cannot force your convictions on me?
While I disagree with your ideology and your interpretation of many of Paul’s words, I consider you nothing less in Christ than a Brother and fighting about our differences only causes strife, as exhibited not only in this thread, but every thread that you oppose Paul.
Personally, I disagree heavily with Calvinism. You will be hard pressed to see me in one of those discussions, yet I created a forum specifically for Calvinism and placed a Calvinist over it. If I recall, you and JLB have much in common in this area and have tagged up on multiple occasions to oppose their views. In the matter of how one lives their life for God, you two have much in common. More so than you have differences. Why destroy the relationship you two were building over your pet doctrine? Don’t throw that away.
Why did I create a Calvinism forum and set a Calvinist over it? Because although I disagree with their theology, I believe those discussions need to take place, just like yours needs to take place.
What I ask, is that everyone remain respectful and dignified. When we argue and fight and tear one another to pieces, what does that show the world? It shows the world we are no different, and often worse than the world. This brings no glory to God.
Honestly, it’s an embarrassment.
