hmmm.......

Pretty much destroys any argument you had after that fallacy.

Crystal Cathedral gets the same critique. Hypocrisy and corruption are present in anything that humans are involved with. Organized religion is no different.

Organized Religion, yes. Personal relationship with Christ, no.

Sure - what more do you me to read? Enjoying how your shoe tastes?

I'll pray for you. Just not in a way you would think and I'll do it even if you don't want me to. There, done.

I see you found the words, and then decided they were really only written for the hypocrites of the time and a particular flavor? How convenient for you.

Jim,
I think this is the proper thread for you to tell us your testimony. I know it won't be positive, but.........

I believe in doing my thing with the door closed, in private. Seems appropriate for so many activities that should be kept private. Jim
