suppose you'd see how that also applies to the very dogmatic stance
you've taken. The Bowmans' article was, in truth, quite an
oversimplification of the formation of the Early Church. To reduce
the entire process to a single issue is really absurd.

reincarnation compel one to harrass the lower levels on their
discussion boards? Seriously, SoundGarden, if we don't measure up to
your standards, then how will "reading" that article and listening to
your diatribe convince us of anything? I thought you said that book-
reading and wishful thinking didn't cut it?
That said, it is your "prerogative" to seek a group worthy of your
own inestimable wisdom.
Good journey(s) to you!
