    I couldn't agree more. That is one of the primary reasons that my
    number of posts has dropped.

    A long time ago I asked John what his view of 2Tim 3:16 was.
    Apparently, John no longer reads my posts. This, of course, is his
    right, and I respect it.

    BUT, I haven't seen anyone else directly ask John this question. If
    they have, please point me to where. So far as I can tell, we have
    been 'going round in circles' for weeks.

    There is a time to be "nice" and a time to be "direct." I, for one,
    would like to reach agreements. If my views change, great, I have
    learned and grown. And, the more agreement the ASA has, the more
    powerful we become. An organization never grew stronger by continually
    beating around the bush. At a certain point, it becomes more valuable
    to create new organizations, or at least new websites.

    Hopefully, this is only a temporary irritation. I'm not going to "pull
    out the Scripture verses" yet.
