Having poor grammar at times does not make RB less correct than you. Neither does excellent grammar make anyone any more correct than anyone else.
RB's gift is not spelling for sure, but it does create a distraction in much the same way as if you were to do to a concert and the conductor was dressed casually. You would start to question the interpretation of the music.
But I want to respond in a personal way to this idea. I was reading a blog posted on the internet from the president of a seminary who singled out a woman who I happen to know personally who found for her own personal spiritual pilgrimage that the role of Mary and the reflections upon her were of importance to her personally. Now this woman happens to be a Baptist and is very involved in her congregation and also happens to train ministry students in pastoral care.
The seminary president who singled her out has never talked to her or explored why or how this has deepened her faith. Are you beginning to see the problem here?

Hercules was raised into heaven without dying. So, is it okay to
pray to him?
The Bible says no to contact the dead.
Where does the Bible say this?
Leviticus says not to have Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, so that means you can't have a cutting of a relatives name on you.
I know it's in the O.T. but I will let you find it for yourself. Because for one thing if you contact the dead you don't know if it is a demon or the person you are trying to contact, but ultimately from a Christian persective we know it's a demon.

No you are eternally doomed for only REJECTING Jesus.
The Bible like I said earlier says not to have tattoos. But lets say if you have one and then you accept Christ git ride of it.
