      gmw,

      Let me clarify. Perhaps it is the fact that this is a web forum and
      standard cues that you'd get if you saw a person face to face are
      absent that might otherwise show a charitable spirit. But as I see
      this thread, it's another example of a guy who is getting it wrong
      about some doctrine, and a bunch of better-informed people sticking it
      to him. He's wrong, the Reformed guys are right (about the doctrine),
      but there appears to be an implicit *screw you, buddy, you had better
      get this figured out before you come around these parts!* in the way
      he's been dealt with.

      So what if what he's saying is wrong? So what if it was put out in a
      sort of combative spirit? He's misguided--give him a break and take
      it easy as you deal with him. We're all in this together as
      Christians and people get things wrong and espouse them in an immature
      way some times.

      That, at least, is the way it seems. So to make it plain, there was a
      good deal of sarcasm in my original post.

      If that is not how this exchange was intended, so be it. I will
      gladly be corrected.

      In the interest of peace and unity,
      Ben
