Thanks for your post. Yes, not loving God has been a huge topic in this thread for maybe the the last couple of pages. I felt I was being baited to get into an argument that Christians don't or can't love God. It's been a shocker for me. You can go back through a few posts and read for yourself. I would have never dreamed a Christian wouldn't love God. How could that be possible! I sure was glad for YHP's help.
I'm glad to know that you do! Praise the Lord.
bonnie, this is unfair. NO ONE has suggest that he, or any other Christian, doesn't love God. It looks like you and phoebe are talking about different concepts, and to be honest, I don't really understand what either of you are saying. But phoebe has explained to you that you misunderstood her posts, and it is unworthy of a Christ-follower to continue to imply differently.
Exactly, no one in this thread or on this forum has every suggested that Christians don't love God.
Every post I have seen here gives greater insights into the truths before us. And that's what's so great about sharing these ideas........
Don, all I can say is that you haven't read the posts and gotten their intents right. Post 66 in this thread seems pretty plain to me and it's one of the weaker posts on the topic.
I really wish that this thread would be locked and go under because it serves no purpose anymore.
The other thread "Hate Crimes Against Humanity" definitely shows that there are people who think they don't have to love God. If you want the truth try reading the last page of it.
I am going to ask that both threads be locked because I'm tired of being questioned over and over about this when the truth is plain as day.
First of all let me say that I never read posts thinking that I have the ability to get the "intents" of the author "right", ever, I cannot see, nor do I have the ability to look into the heart of man, only God can do that.
Secondly, I have read post 66, I simply disagree with you, you are free to insist what you say it says.....But I, and I think others here, don't think it is dismissive of what you have said, it is an added thought to it, and it is not intended as bait for you.
You can request your own threads to be locked when people post things you disagree with, but that generally, as I understand it, is not a valid basis for closing a thread, because by its very nature, this forum encourages dissenting comment, which means such comment may be disagreeable to you.
Sorry, but I simply disagree with your sentiments and perceptions here.
