    I completely disagree with this article. It sucks.

  2. Cash says:

    This is a growing problem in our culture as a whole. The idea of trolling–posting provocative messages in order to inflame others just because you can, has become prevalent. I agree with you, Kevin–the key is humility and a desire to show the love of Christ in all we say and do. This is one area the church should definitely be different than the world but unfortunately many times, isn’t.

  3. Pastor Al says:

    Just kidding πŸ™‚

    Well done Kevin H!!!!!

  4. Kevin H says:

    Cash,

    You are right that this is a growing problem in our culture. The proliferation of social media has made it so quick and easy for people to express their disdain of others. This should be all the more reason for Christians to be aware of the potential pitfalls and instead try to contrast so much of what happens around them by showing the love of Christ through patience and humility and by speaking in fair and reasonable ways. Easier said than done.

  5. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, Pastor Al for the gracious disagreement, or agreement. πŸ™‚

  6. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    If people would just agree with me, things would be much more peaceful and Christian like. However, you stiff neck readers just won’t do it my way and cause disruption. πŸ˜‰

    Good article Kevin. I will hold off the duel until Opening Day.

    btw, 35 days 11 hours and 51 min and 43 sec (as I type) until pitchers and catchers report.

    for anyone who needs it — my gift

  8. Kevin H says:

    MLD,

    You don’t have to wait til Opening Day. I concede the duel to you this year. But just give it another year or two. Maybe we will then see another moment like Matt Stairs & Jonathan Broxton. πŸ˜‰

    Having the man that baptized you warn teenagers against “idiots” like yourself from the pulpit is something I’m still trying to get some resolution on.

    Oh well.

  10. Erunner says:

    Excellent article Kevin! We should all aspire to what you have shared. Helps with the blood pressure!! πŸ™‚

  11. Em says:

    Kevin’s points are valid – as someone pointed out in the past, we can’t see the tone of ‘voice’ or the facial expressions when someone types out a thot or shares their heart here… but i’m not too sure that all of us can do what the call of this post is and still be honest in expressing their faith…
    as well as exposing hypocrisy and exploitation that seems to grow under the banner of Christendom these days, Michael wants his website to be a place of healing for the walking wounded in the Body of Christ, i know that… but …
    funny thing is… i know i am right – period! and yet i have no desire to “reform” any of those who love the Lord and have found their niche, their traditions in order to walk the walk and i learn from every single person who expresses themselves here… some break my heart, some try my patience, but, strangely, as i read the posts and comments i’m gaining an appreciation for why God so loves this world
    He made us and He is a beautiful God- pray for souls to find Him and seriously pray for Michael

    just sayin… cuz i can here (and so can you, eh? :smile )

  12. Bob Sweat says:

    Em,

    I don’t care about your avatar, IN-N-OUT is better than boy’s big boy! πŸ™‚

  13. Bob Sweat says:

    Excuse me, Moniker.

  14. Bob Sweat says:

    Kevin,

    Good article! Has Michael hired you part time? πŸ˜‰

  15. Michael says:

    I thought I’d better publish this one before tomorrows series on egalitarianism… πŸ™‚

  16. DavidM says:

    What an excellent article, particularly apropos for this forum. The art of conversation and intelligent discussion is disappearing from online forums, because most everyone wants to be heard but not listen. So, it becomes a yelling match. When I go on a forum I want to hear what others are saying. I also want the courtesy of being heard. But when I and everyone else is being preached at, I’ll exit the “conversation”.

  17. Michael says:

    Kevin has been a huge help…
    God sometimes affirms me by sending co-laborers like Kevin and Eric L.
    They are making a big difference for me.

  18. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Michael,
    “I thought I’d better publish this one before tomorrows series on egalitarianism…”

    Have no fear, we have peacefully handled bigger heresies than egalitarianism in the past πŸ™‚

  19. Kevin H says:

    Bob,

    I get paid as much as Miss Kitty. Minus the treats and cat food. πŸ™‚

  20. Jean says:

    I kinda miss the days from a couple years ago when MLD and I went at it tooth and nail all the time. And then …

  21. Em says:

    Bob S., i go clear back to when there was only one Bob’s Big Boy – a drive-in on Colorado Ave. just south of Glendale High School πŸ™‚ the burgers then were enormous, but they used to have something called a “chili-size,” spaghetti topped with a meat patty and chili gravy; for some reason i loved that thing …

  22. Bob Sweat says:

    Em,
    I enjoyed a few burgers from that location.

  23. Em says:

    ever wonder why an occasional thread gets detoured onto the subject of coffee or hamburgers? lol … there’s never a psychiatrist around when i need one …
    we had a moose go down the driveway yesterday, if i can get a copy of picture of him, i’ll change my avatar

  24. Bob Sweat says:

    It’s your moniker. ?

  25. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Bob & Em sure have not learned anything from the Kevin H article the way they keep arguing back and forth — moniker/ avatar.

  26. Surfer51 says:

    Em,
    Do you remember “The Hat?” Great pastrami. It is still there.

    Great article K.

    In this current culture of acceptance does this mean Alex won’t be coming to the party any time soon? πŸ™‚

  27. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I tried The Hay in Lake Forest once. That’s pastrami for the Goy.

    I grew up on Canters in the Fairfax district. That is real pastrami. πŸ™‚

  28. Surfer51 says:

    Well MLD,

    How about Nate and Als on rodeo drive?

  29. Surfer51 says:

    Your right MLD. Their pastrami was untainted. Most places serve flavorless pastrami that has been soaked potassium sulfate which raises the water content and dilutes the flavor as a side effect. But eat is sold by the pound so everyone does it but a select few.

    Oops, I was a know it all, forgive me Kevin…LOL

  30. Em says:

    “I grew up on Canters in the Fairfax district. That is real pastrami.” i had corned beef piled high on Kaiser rolls with horseradish somewhere in the L.A. garment district – never had any as good since… better’n pastrami IMV πŸ™‚

  31. Em says:

    the Hat doesn’t ring a bell, but there was a large deli a block off of Brand Blvd that served passable corned beef… pastrami, too i guess

    if i can get my moose avatar, does anyone know anything about moose meat? lol

  32. Kevin H says:

    Okay, enough of all this food talk with your West Coast biases. You all need to come to Philly and get a good cheesesteak. This is a primary matter and I do know it all! πŸ™‚

  33. Bob Sweat says:

    Kevin,
    My wife and I enjoyed a cheesesteak sandwich at Genos, nothing like it.

  34. Kevin H says:

    Well Bob, I see you have made the pilgrimage to the Cheesesteak Mecca. However, if you were truly devoted, you would have also gotten a cheesesteak across the corner at Pat’s. A real devotee would have doubled up on their artery blockages. But the fact that you made it at all speaks more for you than most of the rest of those West Coast pansies.

    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  35. I think Bob Sweat is a liberal for eating Philly Cheesesteaks. Now we know he goes both ways. πŸ˜‰

  36. Surfer51 says:

    Ah Kevin,
    You be absolutely correct. A Philly Cheese Steak out here on the Westcoast has no comparison to the real deal of a cheese steak on location (Philly). Next time I am in New York I will seek out the real deal.

  37. Surfer51 says:

    You can’t go wrong with food as a topic LOL.
