And since this is in response to my post, am I to assume you include me among the "agenda driven creationists and posers"? I have already stated that I am not a creationist, although I readily admit that I am (gasp) friends with some. If you are asserting that I am posing as something that I am not, then you are incorrect, particularly if you suspect that I am knowingly engaged in some sort of deception.
I have perhaps singled you out for discourse, but that is because you have identified yourself as a Christian Minister. You have also professed as one your main motivations for posting, something along the lines of being concerned about the witness of persons who claim to be Christians to potential converts. (I didn't want to wade through 1500 posts to get the exact post to quote. But, I believe the previous sentence conveys the gist of the post.) This is something that I am concerned about too...that is why I am addressing you.
I feel that I must reiterate at this point that I know that I am certainly not a good witness on all occasions. But, this should not prevent me from trying to help reprove a brother. It was for that reason that I was suggesting that you rethink your demeaning of fellow Christians by suggesting that their religion was nonsense, and for misleading others by purporting that an acceptance of evolutionary concepts was somehow central to being a Christian.
If I have any agenda at all, it is to make the point that acerbic attacks rarely help win converts, (you catch more flies with honey) and I am trying to make that point to both sides of the argument.
I don't consider creationists to be good Christians because they have distorted the Gospel and inserted Genesis (a faulty interpretation of Genesis) into the Gospel.
How can you make people understand the Gospel if you have all this noise from people who have put their scams to make money from the scientifically unwashed above Christ?
I don't really attack people. I tell them the truth and they think it is an attack.
