      Are those new tennie-runners you got on?

      IF you have a "Doctrine of Justification" then it is utterly appropriate to ask how it relates to the Gospel Parables...

      BECAUSE...

      YOU are proclaiming your false Doctrine of Justification as Gospel Truth...

      I think this whole thread is kinda sad. Where does it say it is okay to talk to each other like people have in this thread? Where is that in the Bible?

      Accusing an Orthodox Christian of miscreance is greatly encouraged as a general rule...

      We pay bonuses for unjust accusations - Often!

      George can't drive him out, because by participating in this thread, he has a dog in the fray...

      'Twouldn't be propah! Mod or not...

      If I were a Mod, I could not ethically silence Menno for the same reason...

      It would take an outside mod to give corrections...

      And I have a really hard time not trolling Menno...

      I mean, he so deserves it!!

      Which makes my repentance more challenging...

      Mind you...

      That's enough dear Christians! If you can't behave yourselves then I will aid you in closing this thread. You're nice to one another in other threads so it must be the topic?

      Sorry, MC, I know you wanted the thread to remain open... but I can't allow this treatment to happen because it's not a good witness for our faith to bash each other like this and see who can get the most creative insult in.

      This post is posted at my (MoreCoffee) request by the good grace and tireless service of our Forum Administrator Lämmchen

      Justification is such an important matter for Christians that it deserves to be discussed and civilly debated among brothers and sisters who disagree about exactly what the word means and how Christians receive it and experience it in their lives. This thread was created for that end as was stated in the first post (almost 1,900 posts ago) that launched the topic here in Christianity Haven's Christian Theology forum. And now, after so many posts and so much good discussion it appears to be time to call it a day - not because we have reached a consensus not because we accept one another's views as genuinely Christian but because the discussion may have exhausted the pool of tolerance that was available to us as a Christian forum. For my part I would be happy to let the topic continue until all the participants were tired of it and let it die a natural death through lack of continuing interest and new posts but that cannot happen partly because the lessons learned (and some were learned) are mixed with some bitterness and the bitterness is beginning to be present too much and too often. So let us thank God for the good that is present in the discussion thus far, thank one another for the good things written and for the civil posts posted and move on to new debates in new threads.

      God bless and keep you all.
