Personally I think the OP has some good points in some of his OP. I have given him "likes" and even given him "reps" for things that he has said in the past.

I would just like to be able to ask a question about his "personal application" of some of the scriptures being put up. I think this is one main reason why his posts get challenged all the time.

I did have a problem one time at the start when he told me he had the 2 witnesses in the book of Revelation inside of him and so he could "rain down fire on others". ( that one gave me the "willies" - maybe that is just a Canadian saying..)

I agree in principle with a lot of what the OP says when he quotes scripture. I have no problem with scripture itself - it's the way it is used and then combined with an application of a different kind that throws me off and so I want to ask him questions about it.

I think we should cut him some slack and then maybe he will be honest with us when we ask questions about this personal application of some scriptures and then we could all learn together.
Indeed a lot of his posts are good for soaking and pondering it's just the heart behind them that makes it hard to. But wow did he really say that? that is concerning

Pardon me while I vent here for a minute.

I've been a moderator and then administrator on this site now for five and a half of my six years on this site and it seems to me that in the past year or so the BDF has degraded to a low point that I've never seen before. This thread by itself is proof of how badly it has degraded when the thread completely becomes about the original poster and his motives rather that the original post not within a couple of pages, but within the very first page.

Unfortunately because CC is primarily staffed by volunteers in is an absolute impossibility to monitor every thread in every forum. I personally read just about every post in 5 forums on a daily basis and between that and dealing with a mound of reports filed daily pretty much ties up the bulk majority of every evening. Needless to say, the BDF is NOT one of the forums that I read daily since it is such a high traffic forum it is nearly impossible to keep up with.

All I can say at this point is that if this type of behavior continues this forum will end up losing a handful of users that continuously are at the center of every thread that has blown up and the short list involves persons on both sides of the non-stop law vs grace vs "hyper-grace" debate that has permeated this forum for darn near to a year now.
