What is muddled about my logic? All I am saying is that those of us who know the grace of God also know that we don't have rights, but that we offer up ourselves as living sacrifices. I am saying that that quote from Wendy's book disagrees with that theology.
Nathan, please explain to me IN YOUR OWN WORDS what the phrase "we don't have rights" means.
When I say we don't have any rights I mean that as a disciple of Christ, you no longer keep any right to yourself, even self-preservation. You are completely a vessel that belongs to God, to do his bidding alone.
Please restate that point in your own words. I get the image that Gary is standing over your shoulder, prompting you about what to say when in actuality, you don't have any idea what "you have no rights" really [i:25bf4fc83e]means[/i:25bf4fc83e]. Shoot, [i:25bf4fc83e]I[/i:25bf4fc83e] have no idea what that means. It sounds deep and profound, but in all reality it's about as shallow as a kiddie pool in terms
of giving an explanation about why Ole habitually treats people like dirt. He has contempt for anybody that's not as smart as he thinks he is. Here's Ole's version of Romans 9 in a nutshell:
Vessel of mercy=anybody who agrees with Ole Anthony's point of view and is willing to follow his lead.
Vessel of wrath=anybody that does not agree with OA's opinions and is not willing to uncritically swallow whatever he says.
Here's a few more translations of TFI-isms for you:
Antichrist mind=your mind when it is not conforming to OA's opinions and view of the world.
Pick up your cross, enter the rest, get on the mercy seat, just be=
"You brute beast. You have started thinking independantly and uncritically and must repent of your pride. You have a rebellious spirit. Let Ole be in charge. The only mind and senses we can trust are his!"[/b:25bf4fc83e]
