    FT, Stop pontificating. You do not have the final word on a matter. God does.
    Also a person who weeps is not weak. Unless you count Jeremiah as a weakling. He was made of steel. Scripture says we are strong when we are weak.
    You seem to want everyone to be instantly mature and knowledgeable in the Word. But there is such a thing as growth in the Lord and we are at different levels of spiritual growth. Those who are not as far along as you do not deserve a verbal scolding.
    Also anyone who is for Trump has major spiritual problems. Take the political blinders off.

    If you need any help let me know.

    Ya might want to go back and re-read what the Lord said thru Paul... it was rude in some case as well and things Jesus said was rude, and it was all said in Love!


    To your zeal, add understanding so that you may bear good fruit.
    Yes, in the end we'll see who's fruit is rotten and who's isn't.



    You do not have the final word on a matter. God does.
    Yes, hence the scripture quotes... you are free to ignore the scripture that was posted... you're a big boy now.

    Thank you for sharing your erroneous opinion

    Key words there, "in some cases" NOT every single time he interacted with ppl.

    Jesus rudely corrected the super religious of His day. He gently brought correction and healing to ordinary ppl. Occasionally he got short with the disciples, but it was the exception, not the rule.

    No need for personal jabs. TRY to keep them to yourself, please.

    Thank you for sharing your erroneous opinion
    This is what Scripture says about correction and this is just the first one I thought about:

    Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

    15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

    ...and just how big a boy are you? Almost everyone you have engaged with on the forum has repeatedly told you that you need to fine tune your delivery. With so many saints telling you the same thing over and over a wise man would take a step back, inquire of the Lord and do some serious reflections.

    I believe you truly do want to help people and you could have a lot to offer but did you know that some already have you on ignore? If that continues you'll wind up with no audience at all, no one to potentially minister to...is that what you want? Or do you want to make some changes so that you can bless folk?

    But with many counselors they succeed

    I'm not a pastor or in the ministry in any way other than general witnessing in public when the opportunity arrives, so I'm just posting my opinions about various topics just like everyone else.

    I see all kinds of rudeness from all of you towards each other (dialog I'm not involved in) so I don't see how I'm any different other than people like to jump on the guy that is not a big fan of petting people's feelings.

    I work a regular job, not a ministry job. I leave that sort of thing to those who go to cemeteries and bible schools.

    Your posting style is more of a bull in a china shop ......... There's a big difference between petting people's feelings and just general politeness.

    I know, things go much better for everyone if I mind my own business.

    Actually that seems to be true for everyone unless of course someone asks for an opinion.

    That's the downside of a discussion forum is it invites people to post their views on stuff.

    No one said anything about not posting your views.

    Apparently, my views are like a bull in a china shop.

    So, I'll need to steer clear of china shops where things are so fragile.
