Don,

You said to Oki,

"I'm simply not sure how to respond in that I don't understand your aggression to back someone into a corner without cause or reason. It's a behavior that is simply foreign to me as a Christian. "

I don't understand how it could be foreign to you as a Christian being that these is the kind of post you post to most anyone that does not see it your way. This was strange for me to read you post such a statement. You have belittled more here on the forum than most anyone else and then you come out and say such as above. I for the longest time have wondered why you were so out spoken and seemingly hateful to others but have just shook it off and kept to my own business but you floored me with the statement above. Do you really think this or was it to be humorous?

Well, Bill, I certainly, too, am surprised with these words of yours.  And in the way you have posed your question, I am not sure how I am to answer it.  I think you have answered it yourself, have you not?  I simply will bow on out, Bill, I think I've got the message loud and clear, and I hope it will be of great rejoicing for you.
Blessings to you.........

It's not unusual for those who resort to dishonesty to characterize any opposition at "hideous."  And no, I don't hate you.  I loath your consistent dishonesty and deceitful tactics (particularly your habit of categorically stating as fact what another person believes as illustrated above), but I don't hate you. 

And your blantant desire to hold to this lie and malign others is what is revealed about you.  You are a coward.  I really don't care whether you hate me or not, my point is that your motivation is hatred, underlying your modus operandus of cowardice.
The great thing about the written word is that it serves as a record.  Would you like me to highlight a few examples from the above posts that clearly demonstrates the behavior I'm referring to?  Don't think I am the only one who has noticed either based on the PMs I've received.
Coward.  Yeah...the fact that I am holding you accountable for your words, coupled with my chosen profession, pretty much dispels that silly notion.
Of course you care. If you didn't, you wouldn't continue referring to it.  But, I don't, so no worries.

You simply demonstrate your cowardice with every response, IMO.  You confuse accountability with smear, and you do so deliberately.  And worse yet, it really is apparent that you simply enjoy this sort of thing, ironically you seem to take comfort in this behavior even in spite of your own profession behind which you seem to hide.  I really don't know what to say about quoting my posts, it would not make any difference what the truth is no matter how you chose to characterize your smear.  Is that type of thing so enjoyable to you that you would wish to obsess yourself in doing that, thinking the readers here would enjoy it with you, let alone even be interested?  If so, you certainly ingratiate yourself, and I guess you're free to go ahead and enjoy yourself in such an endeavor.   I'm simply not sure how to respond in that I don't understand your aggression to back someone into a corner without cause or reason. It's a behavior that is simply foreign to me as a Christian.   And no, I truly do not care what someone like you thinks of me, but God's speed to you anyway.......And yes, the written word is indeed a record.  The Pharisees perfected the concept you have embraced with your sentiment, and you're not far behind.
What specifically makes me a coward? Can you provide a specific example? 
I am not trying to smear you, Don. Your have done that all by yourself with your own words. "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" 
Why am I almost a Pharisee for not allowing you to falsely state my theological positions? That's the whole crux of the matter, isn't it? You consistently do that to other posters, and when someone gets in your face about it, you cry "Coward" and "Pharisee".

Sorry Don  I should have kept my mouth shut and not been so judgemental. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. It is probably more to the effect that I just don't understand your way of posting and it is because of that, that it seems that you are hurting and come across as upset a lot to me. I really do not know you well enough to have said what I said so please forgive me for being so judgemental.

Oh, Bill, you are forgiven always......However, last night I left my "de"registration request from this board with admin.(listen to the crowd roar!)...It's quite obvious that it's time to go for me!  But it's been a great time, a "great ride" as they say...now I have other things I need to be concentrating on, things I consider so much more valuable in life to be taking my time......Best wishes and continued blessings to you........

This is all very sad.  I don't post here very often any more, but I read.

I have discussed with Don since the "Freedom Rings" days. We have agreed and disagreed. I will miss reading you Don and even replying to you, even though it has been a while since I have replied to you or anyone here.

In Christian love,
ollie

Hi my brother.  It makes me sad also

Don
I left for a while and later came back.  I understand the hurt that can come through words.  I think we all (including me) should be more minful of what we say and how we say it.  Come back when the feelings have settled.
