Just to be clear, I don't use big words to feel "liek" somebody, I use words that have a specific meaning. Given your grammar and language skills (at least as reflected on the forum), I can imagine you may feel put-upon, but that certainly wasn't my intention. (And please let me know what the big words were: was it "restriction" or "tolerance" or "berating"... oh, I'll bet it was "aphorism". In any event those are all basic English words...but again, given your grammar skills...)
My whole point was, can't you remember the time when you
didn't believe in God? At that time in your life, if someone had responded by lambasting you the way you took after people in this thread, would your reaction have been, "Hey, maybe this guy has something" or would it have been much the reaction you've received? Is your conduct here helping
the cause of Christ or simply adding fuel to the fire of those who consider believers to be nothing more than stupid, intolerant and misguided fanatics? I'm sure after you posted your initial response you sat back (perhaps smugly) and thought, "boy, I sure told them". And I'd agree with you, you did. But all you told them was "hey, I think I know it all and -- by the way -- I also know what's best for you." Even assuming that were to be true, why would they have any
interest in hearing from you with your attitude?
There's an old saying: People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
That said, I'm not sure how much you know, but it sure looks like you don't care.
