    Confession time. What do you think when that happens?

    I don’t think I’ve experienced that, but there again I’m not married.

    Ive actually honestly never experienced this before : p

    Id imagine that if it were a loved one, Id think they just got overly upset and need to cool off. If it were a stranger, Id think they are creepy and want to get away from them : p

    I did have a Christian friend in my old life who would talk to me about why what I was doing was wrong from time to time, and Im glad he did : p He was my friend though, and I trusted him, so I was okay with having a conversation with my friend about our differences at the time.

    That's why I included, "at you all the time." I expect people to call me out, if I need a calling out, but when someone scold, screams, scold, screams at me all the time, I can guarantee the person isn't friend or family. Not even boss or doctor.

    But I have seen this happen three times in the last couple of days on this site, and after all the scold, scream, scold, scream, somehow the "...but I love you in the Lord, Brother" is supposed to absolve the nonstop assault.

    I buy that like I would buy caviar-covered pate. (I hate liver, and just can't even get little fishy eggs into my mouth to see if I might like them. lol)

    I couldn't take Bill Parcells as my coach in football, because all he did was scold, scream, scold, scream at the players. (And he was an excellent coach, so it worked.) Obviously, it works for some people. I'm just checking to see if any of those people are on this site.

    Oh? Well Ive never seen that side of you here before, I generally think you are really pleasant : p

    All the time though, that sounds like abuse to me. Would feel bad for anyone dealing with that. Its good to warn your brother, but not to shame them.

    I think it is about the same as when someone writes: "Bless you!" I'm pretty sure that is Christianeze for: _____ you!

    I've seen these "big shots" first hand in IFB churches. They are the "heroes" of many who hope to "pastor" up to their level someday with their "leadership" skills and "boldness."

    People are intimidated by this guy, controlled. Cultic behavior. Some of them will believe that was "some good preachin'!"

    It IS a very strange thing about humans, in that some of us actually seem to crave being brow-beaten like that. I think they really do believe that having that done to them is somehow a Spiritual thing. That they deserve it, and it will make them better, the more they let someone humiliate them. Like the foreign pilgrims who beat and cut themselves and climb long stone stairways on their knees to "prove" how filthy and unworthy they are.
