I write in relation to the questions Zeusor has put to you, on the previous page. I (for one?) presume that your occasional references to your extensive qualifications are simply intended to remind the audience of how thoroughly UNQUALIFIED David McKay is by comparison (here, despite what he may have learned ad hoc from David Berg, down through the years!)....I appreciate these reminders, from you, about the pretence of "knowledge" that David alludes that he has.
Like I said, I think that Chris is a nice guy and bear no ill will toward him. I commend him on the hard work he put in and determination he had to earn his degree and appreciate what he has to say here. All I am saying is that he does not have to tell us about it in almost every single post and that it makes him seem puffed up and ostentatious.
Now, on to my ASININE JC-RELATED QUOTE OF THE DAY (I found this one today)
We're not asking to be treated as gods; we're only channels through which God speaks. We are not the answer; but we have the answer. This is not presumption so much as it is a simple statement of reality. We are only the branches, but we can lead you to the Tree. And if you like our fruit, why not accept the Tree. (John 15:1-6)
Maybe I am beating a dead horse here, because I have made this observation before, but this time the irony of the quote especially strikes me. The above was written in 1986. "If you like our fruit, why not accept the Tree?" DM is saying that God speaks through the Jesus Christians (or whatever they were called in 1986)? Upon examination, his fruit 22 years later looks pretty rotten to me.
David asked me who the guy in my new avatar is. It's Gerry Rafferty, from the band Stealer's Wheel. You know that song? He sang it.
"Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with you..."
