I don't think you're awful; I do think you acted shamefully.
I learned long ago...my source of joy, happiness, and contentment doesn't come from anyone but the Lord. If I allow how others treat me to be what builds me up or tears me down, I only open myself up to be controlled by others. I still fail at times, because I'm human. We all have a desire for acceptance. Sure...some people live for stirring up strife, but most people want to be accepted.
One of the best ways to gain acceptance is...
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
If you want others to attack you, then attack others. If you want others to be friendly to you, then be friendly to them.
Actually, I was friendly. I was polite. I was respectful. I got messages from people who "liked" my posts.
Then, I made the mistake of revealing that I affirm Reformed doctrine and the knives came out. I was called all kinds of names, the butt of all sorts of accusations. Couldn't report them because the moderators were/are some of the worst ones. Who would I report it to?
Now, the high and mighties, like you, not one said, "Hey, you guys think you might be a little rough on him? Is a difference of opinion about over ordo solutis (yeah, I know nobody here has a clue what that is) is really a good reason to act this way?" No, of course you didn't. But the minute I defend myself, oh, that you have a huge problem with.
So don't tell me to be friendly. I was friendly and look where it got me with your little clique.
By the way, I notice you didn't answer my question. I don't blame you.
