I see where you’re concern comes from. I think you’re both very passionate, so it’s understandable that you disagree at times. I also disagree with his POV, but he listened to my POV, I listened to his, and neither of us have changed our positions. God has to take it from there, that is about all I can do, the rest is up to God.I agree with what you are saying, but be very careful. Todd wants other weaker Christians to convert to his system of unbelief in the bible. He needs to repent of these terrible sins but he has revealed for a long time that he has a very hardened heart to Christian doctrines he now hates.
You need to think of readers' needs way more than this apostate's feelings in cases like these, otherwise people unfamiliar with Christianity might mistakenly think Christians are attacking another fellow Christian. Todd is now not a Christian.
I understand wholeheartedly that a new Christian might be confused when he and I don't agree, but I have to wonder if they’d also wonder why we’d hammer each other to death when it won’t change either of our POV’s. As a new Christian, if I saw death blows, I’d think “what MMFA situation did I get myself into? This doesn’t look like loving a neighbor.” I haven’t changed my belief, and he didn’t change his either.
I don’t personally think I treat ppl with kid gloves (my friends would actually go wide eyed if someone said I’m too nice, hah). I’m actually a little disappointed in myself bc of the way I’ve handled a couple of other ones.
At the end of the day, there are always things I regret that I chat with God about, and I know I would’ve regretted escalating it and throwing punches instead of giving it to God. Thank goodness Jesus loves my mess, bc I don’t deserve it
