Macabeus said:
II don't see any fruit inspection in any of your quotes. Do you know what an inspector is? Do you know what the verb inspect means? Where did I inspect your fruit? What fruit of yours did I examine carefully and assess it's genuinity? Stating a scriptural principle is not inspecting fruit. You have no argument, so you have to change the meaning of words.

AND you are the one who judges by calling people hypocrites and spiritually dead. So even if I was fruit inspecting, Which I was not, you would be judging me for doing something you yourself do (Romans 2:1).

You should take the beam out of your own eye...

BUDMAN- Yeah, I kinda figured you wouldn't have the integrity to apologize.

And as far as the fruit inspecting stuff - sure. I do relish calling out hypocrites who love to judge people for sinning when they themselves sin every single day. At least I admit I sin every day - by either thought, word, or deed. Which makes me even more dependent of Jesus. And I do love calling out people who insist that if one does not work, they will lose their salvation - when they themselves can't give any specifics as to how much work or how often it's required. Those who live for nothing less than to put the heavy yoke of the Law back on believers. Hypocrites, Judaizers, and Pharisees all.

He said unless someone mentioned him by name, Budman did (sadly), He responded to buds post. And has been here rambling on ever since.. He is hell ben’t on trying to Get us all to condemn DC because DC made a mistake, that even he admited to making (no one claims to be perfect) he is on a witch hunt. Best to just place him in the corner and let him continue with his temper tantrum

If a person makes a mistake, they should own up to it. We are dealing with Bible here, not games.

so read it a sixth time and tell me who was he replying to,

And taking a stance on an issue(DC said Ananais and Saphira were saved, that is his STANCE) is not the same as doing something (Argueless brought up his stance, he did not say DC lies to the Holy Spirit.)

Argueless did not accuse DC of lying to the Holy Spirit. Didn't happen
just feel free to stick your nose in anyone's business, tell the site how to moderate. that is very Christian behavior....

Did you get it Pen ED?

Even Eternally Grateful saw it.

Are you gone or are you off looking for a reason to ban me.

Go ahead. It would be no great loss.

Again, he has one purpose that is to tarnish a brothers name.

When it got real bad that day, I asked DC to put him on ignore. No one here claimes to be perfect we all make mistakes, own up to it and move on, He did, and I thought we have

Everyone that is except mac. Remember, he is the one who has been going after DC, even putting posts of his in his signature (which was removed) he is on a witch hunt, let him. All he is doing is giving himself a bad name

I removed the signature. :LOL: I have changed my sig, what? About five times. :ROFL:

DC said he was going to report me for partial quoting him in the sig, even though the content was not in any way altered by it. As if no one ever partial quotes. Even Jesus partial quoted the scriptures. Luke 4:18-19.

Anyways, DC's idle threat is not why I removed the sig. I put a better quote on. one that describes you and the others of your "club"

Well wait a second. True he grabbed YOUR post, but HE didn't mention you by name in his post. He didn't even make a single post in this thread til he grabbed yours.

He may not have even known that you vowed not comment here if no one spoke the name of Macabeus.

Further, what "fruit" are YOU accomplishing here by causing a division?

I told you I'm not a moderator except in the sense that we should all moderate each other's remarks so we are not hurting the body.

And I am NOT your enemy. Stop looking at people like enemies.

Not exactly how I worded it, (I don't refer to myself in the third person), but irrelevant. I said as long as no one brought me up

Better to tell the truth and cause a division then to follow a multitude to do evil. Like accusing people of things they did not do

Not everyone argues with me. There are several here who have defended me. And others who have lied about me, like calling me a fruit inspector, which has NEVER been backed up.

No one moderated people's remarks when I was called a liar, a legalist, a meatball, a fruit inspector, accused of doctrines I do not hold, accusing me of "retaining my own salvation" which is an eggregious misrepresentation, etc.

No one stood up and moderated there. Now all of a sudden we have someone expecting there not to be a division, when DC, EG, GB9, Under Grace, and others are guilty of either name calling, personal attacks, mockery, or misrepresentation. Sorry, you're too late. These people have already caused a division, not me. If they stop namecalling, personal attacks, and misrepresentations, the division will go away, POOF. But they are too proud to do so

Umm... Sure seems like you do.
No, but the accused has a right to speak on his own defense, right?

Maybe you should meditate on your bottom tagline for awhile.

Ananais and Saphira were saved, that is true.
