    I wondered when that was going to happen.

    It doesn't make him any less of a serpent.

    Welcome to the forum. I hear that Jesus is the Truth, The Life and The Way, and none come to the Father but through Him. Isn't that Wonderful?

    how are we to adorn the teaching of the Christ by stating that others are serpents, off spring of vipers, or in simply repeating scriptural admonition that reads like a platitude, for it comes without explanation. If you are the 'salt of the earth', you must adorn your teaching, that is make it palatable to others, without watering down its content. Did not Paul write,

    (Acts 17:22-23) . . .“Men of Athens, I behold that in all things you seem to be more given to the fear of the deities than others are.  For instance, while passing along and carefully observing your objects of veneration I also found an altar on which had been inscribed ‘To an Unknown God. . .

    Notice how he commends the Athenians for their godly devotion, even though they were engaged in idolatry! He then tries to find common ground and then espouse the truth of the Christ.

    (1 Corinthians 9:19-23) . . .For, though I am free from all persons, I have made myself the slave to all, that I may gain the most persons.  And so to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain Jews; to those under law I became as under law, though I myself am not under law, that I might gain those under law.  To those without law I became as without law, although I am not without law toward God but under law toward Christ, that I might gain those without law.  To the weak I became weak, that I might gain the weak. I have become all things to people of all sorts, that I might by all means save some. But I do all things for the sake of the good news, that I may become a sharer of it with others.

    Don't forget, the serpent is also called the angel of light.

    Yes, a reminder that we need to watch, and not be deceived.

    Good luck with your new incarnation on rhp!

    Carry on spreading the good word.

    Spare people the negative words. They dont get it, and if they do, they dont like it.

    Its been played out several times. Prolly not worth the hassle.

    And Suzianne, shame on you! Give the guy a break, it is the christian way to forgive, is it not?

    A serpent by any other name is still a serpent.

    I don't have a problem with this person's "book".

    What I have a problem with is him telling everyone within earshot that my book is "false". Not to mention the numerous lies he's told about Jesus Christ.

    This is what makes him the serpent (or at least an agent of the serpent). It stops with me because I know what he is. It may not stop there with others because he seeks to confuse and deceive them. The more they are deceived, the more they let him spew his nonsense. I've told him numerous times I don't have a problem with him talking about his religion, if only he would stop spewing his lies about mine.
