A) Dude! It would seem some of us need to take a
chill pill. After all, patience is a virtue.
Perhaps I have a life OUTSIDE yahoo groups?
I'm usually a very patient person. Take as long as you like to do
the necessary reading and reflection before posting. I responded to
what you posted, which reflected zero attention to what I wrote.
B) I think I said that Darby is the only resource
I have available to me OFF LINE, (that is to say,
on CD-ROM), which had anything worth reporting.
None of the other OFF LINE resources I have at my
disposal were of any value in this area.
Why bother posting about the weaknesses of what you found when I had
already directed you to much better resources?
C) Why would you say "I wish I could say I was
surprised"? Is your advice ignored often? Or am I
to assume you have had dealings with ME before,
so that it is well known to you that I often
ignore helpful advice?
Yes, skeptics who tell me they are interested in seeing good
responses to apparent biblical difficulties often ignore those
responses when I offer them. As to whether I have had any dealings

D) Are we to understand the tone of your post to
be "Christ-like" given that you sign your posts
with "In Christ's service"? Maybe, since I seem

when they asked something he didn't like having
asked, or when they answered in a way he didn't
Gee, who really needs to take a chill pill? If a sardonic "I wish I
could say that I'm surpised" offends you, Christ's denunciations of
the hypocrites must really seem over the top to you. And do you
actually claim that there is anything wrong with sharp words of
rebuke, or is this an ad hominem criticism?
So, yes, maybe answering with a sharp tongue for
a simple question IS what Jesus would do.
Um...what was that simple question? My criticism was directed at
your ignoring the resources I provided, not at any simple question
In Christ's service,
