I was corrected regarding the KJV. Steve Schwenke lovingly shared scripture and respectfully asked me to consider. I could tell he really cared and now I am a KJV believer. I will share with others in the same way he shared with me.
Christians can use scripture to correct for instruction and doctrine but there is a proper way and the reason for this thread. Instruct, don't argue. Correct, don't criticize. I am including myself as I have allowed myself to argue. The person doing the correcting needs to remember their own shortcomings.
I want to be clear as to my intentions for posting this thread. It is not because of what happened in one particular thread or between particular people but multiple threads and multiple people I have been involved with and in and some I have not. In the short time I've been on this forum, several threads had to be locked. I think we all need this post as a reminder that we are having discussions with other brothers and sisters and we should treat them as such.
My goal is not to win. I posted this thread for myself so I can be in the right attitude when discussing topics. I'm sorry but some people do make personal assaults on others on this forum so how do you not take that personally?
For anyone reading this and may have read the thread on alcohol, which is now locked, can honestly say I was promoting alcohol? I said I don't drink nor did I condone getting drunk. Anyway, this thread is not about alcohol so I will not speak on that anymore.
