Dr. Steve: "There are two contradictory gospels at play here. Jesus + Joe is a denial of Jesus."
You, reaching I assume to the deepest depths of your thinking: Your opinon [sic]
Well, it's your opinion that it's his opinion.
It's my opinion that he's just stating the facts, just telling you what the Bible says. (He is.)
As I have often said, I would have much more personal respect for the Mormon who said, "Oh, no doubt about it: you can't believe what the Bible teaches, taken by itself, and Mormonism at the same time. They are mutually exclusive. I just like Joe." (I feel the same about JW's and RC's, for the record; just change the source authorities.)
You up to that sort of honesty? Or are you beating the "Yep! Yessir! There is and only can be but one God AND one day we'll ALL be Gods! Yep! Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone on the basis of the finished work of Christ alone AND I have to add my good deeds to it in order to be saved" drum?

"Well, it's your opinion that it's his opinion."
No, it really is his opinion. It is my opinion that his opinion is incorrect, and his that mine is incorrect.
"It's my opinion that he's just stating the facts"
I'm glad you got that part right.
"You up to that sort of honesty?"
That would not be honesty. You cling to your distorted view and call those who try and point out the distortion liars. Straw Man 101.
LDS doctrine is not contridicted by the LDS understanding of the Bible, it DOES contridict YOUR understanding of the Bible. If you want to say we understand the Bible wrongly, or that our doctrine contridicts your view of the Bible, go right ahead, but 'you don't agree with me so you are not being honest' crap is childish. And not having your personal respect is no great hardship for me.
