I have deleted the entire post due to the way it got out of hand.
I acknowledge and have acknowledged before that there are times when my mouth gets carried away.
I for one am not happy that Disciple of Christ (the commentor fromerly known as Q, formerly known as Mucho Man, formerly known as Sad little Man) has felt the need to leave us…up until the John Piper post he was one we could count on as being a voice of reasonableness and calm. It is a shame that we inevatably run out of things to say and then decend into mud slinging – and this is not juts me adn Bones – its all of us – Bones and I are certainly a lot quicker to head down that road, we feel comfortable with that – a lot don’t – however it is not right to blame us for the deterioration of this blog into a shit fight at times; we all do it and we are all responsable for the way we respond to each other – I can’t make you talk crap to me and you can’t make me talk crap to you – I choose to and you choose to.
Anyhoo…lets see where this blog ends up…I suspect I know.
