Calling me a liar by any other means still shows you're trying to call me a liar. This forum is public. People can pick a thread and read it at their leisure any time they wish.
And I didn't state I've read every single page in this thread. If you're going to chastise me make sure you address what I have actually said.
I'm done with this defending against such attacks. Interesting number that aligned to that end though. Three.
This thread isn't about me. This thread is about the truth of God and his blessed grace that saved the world.

Nowhere in my post did I call you a liar. Didn't even imply it. :) Nor did I chastise you. NOR did I attack you. You obviously have thin skin, which doesn't bode well for you in THIS forum.. lol

Hi Decon, we have another forum troll hanging around, so boring.
Publicly announces I'm on his ignore list and then talks behind my back. That speaks to bad character.
I'm not a forum Troll. The one I took to task is.

What's really a shame is that when someone stands for the truth they're attacked by those who prefer the one who's pride thinks he leads people there.

Obviously you do not know the word of God as well as you think you do.....

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.
I think he's funny. After reading maybe 100's of your posts to call you a works=salvation promoter is like calling Bernie Sanders a conservative wow that's as bad as Columbus thinking Native Americans' were Indians.
Stupid is as stupid does.

Dcon is a troll? Wow, he's been here for almost 5 years so kudos to him. :p He stands for the truth too. He doesn't believe in works-based salvation, because the bible dispels that falsety when it says we are saved by GRACE, not works.. Do you agree or disagree with that principle?

I apologize for thinking you were calling me a liar.
I'll say this. If someone needs a thick skin so as to be in community with what are said to be, due to the forum title, sisters and brothers chatting in community, and due to how those persons speak to one another that's a real shame.
Read people here that are hate filled and talk behind peoples back on a public forum where they've publicly announced they've put a member on an ignore list, which is against the rules in most community forums. I.E. announcing someone is on ignore. Because it leads people to unite against someone or pick sides.
Ask yourself, would Jesus talk that way to someone? Did Jesus set the example of leading people to the truth by acting like a pejorative filled pride filled punk? Of course not. Jesus came to save that kind of fallen person from those sins.

For example. How good a chance does a dialog like this have in leading someone to read the Bible so as to become like the one that speaks like this. "Well pal, if you don't understand that bit of scripture then you're a farthin idiot."
Reminiscent of Jesus?

AMEN....you are not the only one and according to the actual TROLL we do not persuade me.....here is what the bible states on the matter....

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.

For the record, I never claimed he pushed works salvation.
The truth....you came in swinging, accusing, attributing motive, mouthing and making summations that were false.....and I even THANKED you for your input......and had you taken time to actually read everything I have written you would know that I have on more than one occasion stated my failures, apologized when I have stepped over the line and this thread HAS persuaded numerous people and or solidified in their minds the truth.....You owe us all and especially me an apology........

Contrary to your belief WE do persuade men

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.

You have NO clue how many people I have led to the truth, spoken in front of and GOD from day one has used the base foolish of the world to confound the wise and has used imperfect men to preach his perfect word.

Well, unfortunately this particular forum IS the most hateful, contentious, spiteful forum and it's spilled over to other forums.. That's why I said you (general you) need thick skin to survive in here.

Jesus
WAS harsh from time to time. People tend to dismiss THAT side of Him. He threatened to whip the money-changers, he called Peter a liar, and Judas a betrayer. Maybe He wasn't as bold about it as Dcon is, but if Jesus got through to people with harshness, so can Dcon. :) He's already stated with scripture that it is GOD who brings people to Him through US. By any means possible, even with harsh words..

You realize that trolls can last for years on a forum?
Then there are the Poe's Law Trolls. But let's move forward.
In answer to your question, read my posts and see what I said.
