We haven’t done one of these in a while but blessedhopebaptistchurch.net definitely makes the cut. When your bulletin lists the “missionary of the week” as Hephzibah House you know you’re in the presence of hardcore fundies. But when your site also advertises your pastor’s “life changing” books on The Seven Royal Laws of Courtship and Jesus’ Teenage Years, you know you’re in the presence of crazy hardcore fundy indeed.
Don’t miss the church History page with a list of all the church attendance records and the familiar story of how the current pastor inherited the job from his dad.
Thanks to Marie for passing this one along

your name really is Dante? then I guess the joke’s on you!
I know I shouldn’t feed them, but they’re so cute
. . .
Just don’t feed them after midnight. Or don’t get them wet. I can never remember.
I think it was both . . . eh, the heck with it, the gremlin is already hatched.
By the way Ex, I did think you were a bit over the top with all the emo, I to was hurt very much by a church that I attended , the church where I first heard the gospel. a new pastor came in(bob jones grad), started pushing reformed teaching, when I questioned this a 2 hour argument insued, later that day we received a call from the church stating we were no longer allowed to participate in certain areas because….and I quote….(of your disagreement with our pastor in doctrinal issues). You see a book by A.W. Pink was brought in by this pastor, those who knew scripture rejected such Calvinistic nonsense,from what I saw, those who did, sought to seek justification for No growth(God will do it in his time), No soulwinning(can’t win the non elect) Fallen children(training up a child in the way he should go isn’t really a promise).and low moral standards in ones life(mustn’t be a legalist)..you see x…..reformed theology is the perfect philosophy for a Meager Christian existence.and their mean bitter spirit proves this…o not towards their own mind you…only to those whom they believe to be intellectually inferior to themselves 😐
Let me guess……you and your church have the truth because you are a “bible-believing” church. The only one in your county. You do things by the Bible. Right?
I was just curious Dante because there is a fundamental Baptist with the same name as your’s on Facebook. Some of his inspirations, music, and books are not what I expected from you since you have placed such high standards on yourself, so I guess you’re not him? If I may say so kindly Dante, you seem very bitter as well, just like the Reformed you’ve stereotyped.
That’s the first time I’ve ever heard Calvinists accused of having lax moral standards. Almost everyone else in the world thinks of Calvinists as being incredibly uptight, repressed, and repressive. A Calvinist friend refers to her own church as “God’s Frozen People.”
what the Inferno does Calvinism have to do with anything? You said I was “over the top with emo,” then you said you were hurt very deeply by a Calvinist church you attended, then launched into a tirade against the Calvinists which sounded pretty bitter to me. Nobody on here really has anything much to say about Calvinists–I’m not a Calvinist, and I can’t say they’ve ever done anything to me. We’re here to discuss the IFB movement–not Calvinism. Surprise! That’s why the site is called “Stuff Fundies Like” instead of “Stuff Calvinists Like.” I suggest you start your own blog if you wish to ramble incoherently in a negative manner about Calvinists.
As a side note–congrats on getting into a 2 hour argument with your pastor, on the topic of election, a debate which has raged throughout Christianity for milleniae without ever being resolved!! I admire your spirituality, humility, and grace as displayed by this little episode.
“…those who did, sought to seek justification for No growth(God will do it in his time), No soulwinning(can’t win the non elect) Fallen children(training up a child in the way he should go isn’t really a promise).and low moral standards in ones life(mustn’t be a legalist)…”
Umm…”train up a child in the way he should go” really isn’t a promise. You do know the difference in promises and proverbs, right? 😕
Hey Scorp, you really need to Explain Yourself concerning that pic 😕
No Nikki, just trying to get these folks to consider their own true condition.you see… If their heart truly matches their tongue( of which I’m taking them at their word) then they have some reflecting to do
Then I’m not exactly sure why you’re here Dante. Perhaps you feel as I do in that independent Baptist fundamentalism has been slowly dying in America. But you seem to be angry that Calvinism is the culprit when in reality it has been failures with the IFB movement itself.
Scorpster, I’m just now realizing that you may very well be the comic relief of this crew,that’s ok, sounds like fun….. I will try to be a little more jovial when addressing you 😆
Dante – it’s a dirty job but someone has to do it. Everyone is so uptight around here. You know how that reformed bunch are. Pre-election this, no soul-winning that. I’m like “how can a brother get to heaven if he ain’t picked”? You know what I mean?
I usually read Spurgeon when they get me depressed. Now he was a Bible believer. Amen?
Big Gary, you gotta get out more big guy, I believe the “frozen chosen” title was given to Calvinist-prespr. Types because of a lack of ANY spiritual zeal, not the upholding of tight moral standards, might be wrong on that 😕
Yes, you’re wrong on that.
Sorry big guy,but I believe you are wrong on this one…… Did a little research on a “refer-presp” web site and the term frozen chosen refers not only to spiritual stagnation, but to be more exact, the practice of only witnessing to “covenant children” or the children of the existing saved because as some reformed would teach they are the only known elect…. Set apart or sanctified if you will …… So it’s not their upstanding moral standards…… Worked around alot of them Gar, they couldn’t even fake it…… Deplorable standards 🙁
a. You made all that up; and
b. You’re still wrong.
That’s it. I’m out of troll food. ‘Bye.
Not a lot of grace there…. Little Guy… Im with you… Refor. Doctrine is unbelievable!!! But I assure you, I never Lie….. It’s one of those Bible Believer “Things” ….. Telling the truth is one of the easy ones! 😕
Dante, I’m gonna call you on this one and declare that you are a liar for making that statement.
Scorpiano, Really!? …. Spurgeon !?…. Maybe if I want a little morning encouragement, or where to get a good Stogie…… But doctrine? You know very well……… Wait a minute……. Why you little trickster you … Your gonna have to get up pretty early in the morning Scorp…..pretty early indeed………………………
Just seeing if you are paying attention.
Oh yeah, if you want a good Stogie, try a Triple Corojo. Earthy flavor but not too bold.
Scorp …. I’m speechless……….X …. Your very angry, but if you could calm down and go back to this presiding web site no one can deny that it is extremely Calvinistic in it’s philosophy……they seek to promote the reformed view point through character assassination….. Of those that they disagree, the Hyle’s guys being their main target ❓
Scorpio is angry right now?
Bahaha no, he’s just amusing himself….
I think he was referring to me . . . double sigh
X is right….. Tried to respond to both at once …….. Triple sigh
However I do sense Fear when the name of Mr David Cloud is brought up in your conversations……. I checked his sight out…..I love that guy …. I love being part of the crew that wear the White Hats…..come on Scorp , big Gary …… These things have got to appeal to you….. Strength…Honor…Courage….Justice…..Righteousness….. Can you imagine the three of us going door to door telling folks about the savior….. What a Grand time that would be……( minus the stogies, Scorpio, I think even big Gary would agree with that one) 😮
I must add that I’m a tad offended at not being invited on your doorknocking campaign. not be included in such a “Grand time” . . .
But on the bright side, I AM glad you hear that you checked out David Cloud’s sight. He’s been squinting lately when he reads small print. 😆
actually, I’m far from angry, as I’ve been chuckling to myself throughout this little exchange-particularly at the progression of my name towards oblivion in each of your posts. First I was “ex from Fundamentalism,” then “ex,” and now “X”. My very existence seems to be dwindling . . .
unfortunately, the entertainment value of your most recent post was obscured by the fact that its meaning was quite garbled. In fact, I’m still squinting and puzzling over it. what does “presiding” mean to you? What website are we talking about-SFL, or the blessedhope site? how does character assasination relate to reformed theology? What do the Hyle’s [sic] guys have to do with anything? What does “those that they disagree” mean? The mind boggles.
Spelling and punctuation may have something to do with the problem-or maybe I’m just not brilliant enough to keep up with your sparkling rhetoric. In any case, I think I’m going to move on with my life now. As my husband advises, “Never have a battle of wits with an unarmed man!”
Oops-did I say that? I must apologize for my overactive playful side. Hey, at least I’m not a frigid Calvinist!
YEA….WHAT SHE SAY……
😥 😥 😥 and a thousand times 😥 ,you cut me to the core X……… To the core….your a hard one sister….. a corker indeed 😥
Pretty rough Don, how about this one….. Never drank a single bit of alcohol in my entire life, neither has my wife, or my four children. Going to call me a liar their too? You see Don, lying like drinking… Is a planned sin,just like gambling, or adultery…. I think they are avoidable in the Christian life even as a weak Christian. However their are deeper things in all our lives that the Lord Hates and he seeks to arrest them from our lives….Anger, Jealousy,… A Proud Look, a Lack of Mercy and being Fearful. I believe those are “Toughies” for us all ” almost accidental” if you will, but lying to another human being…. It’s not that hard…..”yes officer I was speeding, no officer my seat belt was not on, yes officer…I was on my cell phone… That’s why I blew through that stop sign” and after the jaw drops, I may or may not receive Judgement, mostly not,but come what may we ought always tell the Truth and live in such a way that it is pretty easy to do….. I’ve always found that Yea, Nay, and None of your business, pretty much covered what life confronts 😉
Even so, one cannot honestly say “I have never lied.” Sure, you may ‘fess up and admit you really were speeding, but lying includes twisting the truth, not telling the whole story, anything that misrepresents the truth. And you can live a lie, being hypocritical in some way. It happens.
You see, if you were on trial for something, and stated “I have never lied,” the other side could pick holes all in the that, probably bring up some specific occasions, and damage your credibility. You don’t say something like that that you can’t back up.
I’m sorry ms Lilly, but you connot in all honesty dismiss my entire statement with a flippant “even so”, 😕 and to add insult to injury you lied in quoting me….that’s what we call in Fundy Technical Jargen a strawman (strawwoman) argument…. Now I think Don and yourself, ms lily need to re-read your homework twice over 🙄
dodge all you want but you made the statement:
But I assure you, I never Lie…
Only a liar, someone who is delusional or a sinless person would or could make such a statement.
So which are you?
I got a good’s night sleep so I am ready for Round 2.
Dante – can you please tell me where in the Bible that drinking is a sin. Your choice of versions.
Good Morning Captain!
What’s all the fuss here? I mean, it amazes me how the “C” word appears in nearly every posts’ replies even when the original topic is about Chick Tracts or dog poop (same thing really).
It’s astonishing and not in a good way! 🙄
Please watch the language,young lady……good to have you aboard 😉
If we say we have no sin…
The only Captain here at SFL is Scorpio. 🙂
Move out Dante and take your inferno theatric with you.
The New Testament: A Purified Translation? 😀
No need to, you have already proven you are a liar by making your initial statement about lying. Only a liar would make such a statement.
I suppose that you are sinless as well?
Donald ….. Please go back and read my post… And let your ear affect your heart 😐
Have you just discovered the internet? You seem to be very active lately, not only on this blog but other blogs as well. For example, on the Reforming Baptist site he has a post on John 3:16, but you don’t challenge him with scripture, instead you resort to your usual Calvinist bashing. Scorpio also challenged you to show him in scripture where drinking alcohol is a sin, but you ignored that as well. Has your fundamentalist armor been dented and perhaps you’re fed up with all the junk that goes on in the IFB? Tired of works sanctification? There’s got to be some reason to explain why you’re perusing all these sites. It’s ok, your among friends!
I have read you posts. You are an arrogant ass. You are a pharisee of the pharisees. Only you have the truth and you have come here to set us straight.
There was a time I tried to be nice to your type and to a point placate such crap. No more. If you are POE then I have been had… if you are on the level then you are a prime example of the reason this place exists… so that there may be someone who reads here and sees the cult you represent for what it is. If we warn and some take heed, and flee from the cult of IFB and the tin gods like Hyles, Jones, Roloff, Gipp, Kidd, and propaganda outlets like SOTL, then praise the Lord for those who are saved from the error of the IFB.
And another thing, you start in on Calvinism as if you have a clue. Have you ever read the Insitiutes of Religion? What is your view of God? Calvin proclaimed a Sovereign God. The creator God who is LORD over all his creation. He is not subject to the decisions of his creation, his will is not determined by the will of his creation. He is God. He determined everything before he created anything.
Yet, there are many who would usurp God and declare “I have chosen him.” How is that possible for one who is dead in tresspass and sin? If the very best you can do is but filthy rags before God then how can one even come to God unless God draws them and does a work of grace in their heart? We all may not be as morally bad as we could be, but until God does a work of Grace in one’s heart we are as spiritually bad, corrupt and dead as we ever can be.
I’ll proclaim God is sovereign with my last breath. I’ll proclaim Jesus Christ has finished the work of salvation, redemption and justifies those whom he will, according to his will and not the will of his creation.
So, you want to come on here, with your judgmental attitude, and think you are going to set us straight with your snide comments, because only you have the truth? Think again!
(now you can go play the martyr, the wounded soul who was only trying to show us the error of our ways. Go ahead and tell how meanspirited, bitter and nasty Don is. I don’t care. Your attempt to cover your judgmentalism with a smiley face and being “humorous” is just like a snake oil salesman with the big smile and a slap on the back, good ol’ boy attitude. Sorry, not buying it. It reminds me of Joel Osteen… “you’ll believe me because I am being so nice and smiling at you”…bleh!
If anything I pity you. I once was the way you are now and it left a scar on my soul. So, you have my pity.)
Don, that was brilliant. You said that perfectly.
Drinking? non sequitur. We were talking about lying. Because drinking is a simple and concrete act, it’s easier to be sure you have never taken alcohol that you have never lied. (And yes, I’m giving you a pass in assuming you mean beverage alcohol – things specifically brewed, fermented, distilled, etc for the express purpose of recreational consumption. Nothing about medications, accidental consumption of microquantities from other biochemical processes, etc) Of course, you won’t convince m that drinking is a sin, any more thn you could convince me that smoking is a sin. Some will try to, but they’ve gone far off the mark in understanding sin and the flesh.
I note that you’ve gone far beyond, yes, no, and non of your business here.
Dante… You really believe that you are not a liar? Really?
I suggest you get yourself the book, “Respectable Sins” by Jerry Bridges. It’s about confronting the sins we tolorate in our lives. Another good study would be “The Beautitudes” by John Macarthur. (You can download it for free at gty.org.)
“Respectable Sins” – good book.
Scorpio…. I grow weary……these Reform Liberals seem to be so high thinking… That they are no earthy good…. I’m looking for an Honest assessment of the statement “I never lie” or softer yet, “I Always tell the truth”……..I can’t believe these folks actually think a practice in Holiness or just plain Morality …..would mean sinless perfection. Most of the reformed or Calvinist type I have met over the years CHOOSE to live LOW…….. I’m not saying that they were never saved…… 🙄
An honest assessment of “I never lie?” OK, I’ll give you one. When someone tells me “I never lie,” REGARDLESS of his apparent spiritual condition, I conclude that he’s fooling himself or trying to deceive me, because the various permutations of deception are the human stock-in-trade. Even one who attempts with a fervent desire for righteousness to avoid deception has a hard time of it, and would be ill-advised to say that he does not lie. It’s the indefinite assertion that one NEVER lies that makes the whole thing suspect.
There. That’s honest.
Oh, and take better care to use the replay button correctly. It’s just plain easier.
Nikki, I think you know better than that….. That pastor you spoke of has taken scripture…..and with the likes of R. C. Has simply redefined its meaning in the light of his Calvinistic Theology…..now come on…. You knew that….. The truth now….
Your answer just proved my point!!!! If this pastor is wrong on John 3:16 then clearly lay out your argument as to why. Don’t just say he’s a Calvinist and therefore must be wrong. Refute it point by point if you can.
Donald, your bitterness is astounding! I will respond to your doctrinal error in due time….I am on a job site now and this is my customers time. You cannot breath forth Cursing… And … Blessing from the same Mouth…. To defend what you consider one of God’s Traits and then curse one of his own is a Mockery to his Name and His Word which he places above his name….these things ought not to be!! 🙁 …….You are obviously a very Angry fellow….but to interpret my ” keep it light yet serious” attitude as phony …..is You interpreting Me in the light of You!!!!! Just like calvinists interpreting scripture in the light of calvinism. 😕
You do know that the “bitterness” card is not a trump card don’t you?
And you do realize Queen Victoria has been gone for some time now don’t you?
What “cursing” did I breathe forth? hmmmm?
One can claim to be a Christian and still be an arrogant ass… as you continue to prove with your replys, your genetic falacies, your own strawmen and your general demeanor.
I thought that Queen Victoria was really Dick Cheney in Drag…
I guess I was wrong again…
thanks for setting me straight.
I know what you mean, for a while there I thought Dick C. was post gender reassignment Queen Vic.
Hey Sandy, thanks for the suggestions, although I don’t respect John MacArthur as a competent Bible teacher …… However I will look into this Bridges fellow…. Thanks
Who are some men from the past or present (pastors, evangelists, teachers) that you believe are competent and that you respect? I’m just curious.
it seems like we are trying to match logical, organized dialogue with stream-of-consciousness gobbledygook. I think it’s obvious by now that whatever we say, Dante is going to string together 6 or 7 statements only loosely related to each other and even less relevant to any topics we bring up. Honestly, I think he just needs to take his medicine and/or sleep off whatever he’s self-medicated himself with. He’s either not interested in or not capable of honest dialogue, and I think he’s enjoying himself all too much by ruffling our feathers. (We’re not that important or powerful, so it’s pretty sad that ruffling our feathers would excite his ego.) I picture him sitting at his computer in his parents’ basement, cackling to himself in glee each time one of us responds. Then I picture the smoke practically billowing out of his ears as his brain works overtime to try to formulate a meaningful response to the questions or topics we pose to him–and yet, as the saying goes, the results is “all smoke and no fire.” And by “fire” I mean “spark of intelligence.”
I know I’m being mean; however, I don’t feel too bad about doing it because I don’t think it hurts him at all. I think, in his own twisted mind, he’s validated by our “meanness.” So here ya go, Dante. Chew on that nice meaty bone of meanness I just tossed you. Atta boy.
oh, so he’s NOT in his parents’ basement! He’s stealing time from his customers when he should be working! The plot thickens . . .
Well at least Dante did’nt “Lie” about it…….
Dante is just stealing from them.
I know Dante, I know,
I dont mind forgive and forget…
I just don’t want them to forget I forgave.
Perhaps you ought to have Mr. X explain to you what is being discussed here x….. You are insulting… That much is true…a sure sign of immaturity is to insult those with whom you disagree….but your responses make no sense….they seem to be a back drop,or spring board rather, to your next vicious remark.don’t get it ❓
A little Corny too 😳
my writing contains “a springboard to the next remark” . . .
yes it does. I do tend to connect thoughts together in my writing. You know, some people actually call that “coherence.” You should try it sometime.
I assume you’re implying that my husband should come and explain things to me? If so, you’re revealing a degree of male chauvinism more revolting than any I’ve heard, anywhere–even the most hardcore fundies I’ve known never came out with such explicit sexism. And I’ve certainly never heard Calvinists do it either. Maybe you should stop villainizing everyone else and take a look at the misogyny in your own heart.
If you do somehow have a wife, or girlfriend, I sincerely pity her. And you too, for that matter.
Hey X, ….wife and four children….wife and four children…. You really don’t read through my entire post … Do you!?…… I read yours 😕 …. and I must say, I have never heard a Blood Bought Christian Woman use the term,male chauvinism,in a serious way(I’m really setting myself up for that one…I know)…and some of those words you use…. I can’t believe I have to carry a dictionary in my Pick Up now…. 🙄 …. I mean come on… Misogyny…. at first I thought you were accusing me of just having one wife 😆
Well, hello there, Dante. I’m a Christian woman, and I am a feminist.
I do not regularly use the term “male chauvinist, but if the term fits, I’ll use it. I tend not to use pejoratives, however, as I believe it simply adds more discord to the discussion.
Doggone it, George ate my quotes. Thanks, George.
Hey Der-ber, question was directed at Scorpio….I will thank you to wait your turn bud, besides asking these type of folks… What they think of my opinion is like ask Adolf Hitler what he thinks of a Jew…..that’s right that’s right your Hitler and I’m the Jew, in that analogy……,no …., wait ……your calvinists so y…o…u….r. The Jews…..no but I’m pro Israel… You guys are anti semetic….I will have to get back to you guys 😀
You have invoked Godwin’s law. This means you’ve lost the argument.
Wait my turn? Amusing. As EFF has noted, your stream-of-consciousness style makes figuring out what you’re trying to say pretty hard. Maybe that’s a tactic, I don’t know. I can’t tell if you’re calling me a Nazi (Godwin!) or a Calvinist. The latter appears to be your go-to insult of choice, which just goes to show us you don’t know from Calvinists.
Dante’s Law: If you can’t formulate and defend your own arguments with the Bible, then call the other person a Calvinist and that’s that.
Ja, ja. Just pointing it out. Don’t ask me, I guess I just had an extra bag of food. 😕
No way…. Scorpio is the captain…….how cool is that!! :eek:……….Hey Cap’n!! ..want to take this time to formally appologise for usurping you authority on this here Blog… Just thought the young lady needed to mind her manners…. Won’t happen again…. Cap’n sir….. (spoken in a wisper) between you and me seems this crew of yours is gettin mighty restless, they’re kind a chompin at the bit,if you know what I mean 😉 Seems they want to slap each other on the back…..as each Wallows in Self Pity, and when someone points out their wrong heart, they come at them with what seems like Years of Pent Up Fury……so I would like to say Cap’n that I’m here… To….. Stay 😀
so let’s pass out those extra rations to sooth the savages…. And seeing that most are Reformys…. I THINK YOU SHOULD START WITH THE….RUM !!! Good day my man…..
I’ve never said this on this blog before but “sir”
You need a check-up
from the neck-up.
I think Social Services needs to check on the 4 kids.
That was Easy 😆
Not so fast my friend…..
X ……you seem to make socially leftist statements very matter of fact….do you recall a time when you actually repented of you sin and called out to Jesus Christ to Save You? ……totally serious now….. There is a big difference between church going….. And being Heaven Bound
Dante, as I pointed out above, you have already lost the argument by invoking Godwin’s Law. However, you seem to make some pretty broad assumptions as to the spiritual condition of those who post here. Until such time as you can look into someone else’s heart long distance the way God does, I suggest you refrain from making such judgement calls.
Are you equating “socially leftist statements” with a lack of genuine salvation? I guess I’m not surprised.
Stop it. Stop it at once. If you do “believe the Bible” as you claim, don’t forget Romans 14. It’s part fo Scripture too.
DerB … By their fruits ye shall know them… Come on babe…. Think… If you are a Christian you gotta know better….. Get out of that Dead church your in bud… Your being ridiculous 😳
you’re not your
In all honesty Derb… I question the salvation of most of the responders here, I’d quote scripture but you (as well as they have already done) …. Would just Mock the Word of God …..what’s a guy to do?? Reprove a Fool … Over and over and over 🙄 ……. So Im just gonna have me some fun 😆
I for one would prefer you had serious reservations about my spiritual destiny. You’ve shown no ability to grasp proper grammar, I don’t see any reason I should trust your judgement on eternity.
My salvation, like the salvation of the rest of the responders’, isn’t yours to question. It’s between God and us.
I realize this thread is a little older and I may not get a reply, but I am wondering… Are you filling out an Activity Report for all of us that you are “Witnessing To”? Because if you aren’t getting some kind of credit for it at church or college or somewhere your time might be better spent on a corner with a bullhorn.
Tick….just what are you saying…. Looking in the Heart… Long Distance??? Are you insinuating that All are not lost!!!! That Every one doesn’t need or Can receive the gift of salvation ….. I think your actually espousing the belief of Limited Atonement??? ….. When you walk into a room, young lady, All who are there, Need The Savior…. Everyone there,until you know otherwise… From their own mouths…..if X died in a car wreck tonight….and being steeped in Calvinism (reformed theology), rejects her need to repent and believe so that God may answer …. She would start burning … Immediately and be lost forever! We are to be Always ready to give an account of the hope in Christ that we have …. Giving ones salvation testimony is anything BUT personal….it should be a pleasure!!! This is 15 to 1, please be gracious and give one time to respond 🙁
Just discovered the new troll! This routine is old & busted though, and you should try some more healthy behavior.
if he talks…
like he types?
It’s so…. very…. William Shatner-esque.
I’m giving her, all I got, captain!
“Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor not a theologian!”
Bwahaha! It was logical.
Or, it the characters on Star Trek were fundies:
“Doggonit Pastor Jim, I’m and Honorary Doctor of Divinity, not a theologian!”
“good morning george, how are you?”
Go to bed bobby, leave this to the adults…….. This word that’s repeated Troll….sounds suspiciously….”middle earth” …ish….. Have I strolled onto a Geek site….. It’s all good …. Just would like to know 🙄
You should familiarize yourself with a google machine.
When is the next Renascence fair 😳
Renascence fair huh? Is that the one where Ren & Stimpy scents/perfumes are bought & sold?
Why thankyou….. I’m doing this by I phone, just recently discovered this Blog… Stuff….sorry 😳
Hint: if you type iphone on the iPhone it will correctly spell it as iPhone, and not “I phone”.
Donald…… Are you still angry? 😎
Captain James Tiberias Kirk…..thanks don….I like it 😉
the reply button still exists on the iPhone. I know I have 2, and an iPad.
Thanks again Bobby…. I need all the help I can get…. I may be trekie…. But I aint techie…. 😳
It’s pretty easy. See the reply button, and touch it. The iPhone will do all the work.
If you can’t see/click it, pinch to zoom in so you can.
Pinch is your friend.
Using reply would interfere with his S-o-C style, perhaps?
Real bad huh? ….. Yes Don I am told I talk ….. Different…. Goodnight all ….. Troll huh….. Gotta check that out….wish we would have met sooner….
Your right….thanks bud
I can give ya warp five…. And not a wee bit more(rolled r’s)
Dante, I think I figured out one of the many things you are doing wrong. You need to get off the mobile site. Switch to full site. You’ll be a lot less confused.
Fess up Dante. I am paying attention to the man behind the curtain.
I am calling Dante out. He is not a troll. He is a Poe. The question is, which one of us is it?
welll, he showed up about the time Darrell took his little vacation from SFL. hmmmmmmmmm
I’m not sure it is Darrell.
I had my suspicions about our friend being a poe. What sealed the deal for me was his talk about Star trek. Admitting to being a trekkie. Knowing the lingo and Kirk’s middle name.
Any good fundy is not going to talk about Star Trek without mentioning that Gene Roddenberry was a…..humanist! They can’t help themselves. Any conversation I ever had with a fundy about Star Trek included that disclaimer. Like the beliefs of the creator of a FICTIONAL piece of work about FICTIONAL people in a FICTIONAL world in the future should have any bearing on the merits of the work.
I don’t think he found that stuff on the Google either, he seems to have known Star Trek on his own.
You presume too much Scorp, it’s not the merits of the work that is called into question, but rather the desired end,the effect Gene intended on his audience 💡 ,similarly the movie ” planet of the apes” was thought to be just fun Scifi… But actually an on screen interview with the creators revealed that their intent was to portray the theory of human evolution through the Scifi concept of Mutation induced Reverse Evolution…by their own words…. Yet when Charelton Heston was asked about the movies intentions….he basically said to “lighten up… It’s just entertainment”…. it seem like they were trying to make him look a little foolish as well…. His interview came directly after theirs. …… Wether good or evil there is Always an Agenda…. Come on pio, you know that 😕
How about now….. You gotta believe I’m really just ” little old me” now……. Right? ❓
I don’t think it’s somebody pulling a poe. He included a last name on one of his earlier posts… google ‘dante dicamillo’… I think it’s a young fundy who got under conviction about his dabbling in worldliness and decided to go on the warpath for Jesus. 😉

You may be right. I found some comments of his on other blogs. He has a thing for Calvinists.
The mystery continues Scorp…..who’s this redhead dude….seems beyond bitter … Almost negative perhaps, somewhat mean spirited also….although considering your types Loose Biblical application in life, harboring bitterness is par for the course 😕
Dante, thank you for your insightful and incisive observations. I’ll be sure to head to my nearest IFB church and confess my bitter… almost negative perhaps… somewhat mean spirited… Loose Biblical application ways on the altar posthaste.
say a prayer for my soul, while you’re at it . . . after all, as dante pointed out earlier, if I were to die in a car wreck tonight, my eternal destiny is not looking good.
Oh my ….. Why Red….I just noticed something …. You called me “young”…..awwwwww Go on 😳
A little self control missy, after you are a “teacher” 😆
After all……. Messed that up
Side note” little red” ….do we Have to repeat what the other says….. Quite honestly I can’t stand to utter your leftist religious pabble, however I do enjoy periodically, putting your kind in their place….. Especially face to face….. Your socially stunted Geekish oddities are so easy to stir….. And so fun to watch !! 😆
Could you define “pabble” for me, please?
I know what a pebble is, and I know what “pablum” is, but I have never heard of “pabble.”
Pabble….first coined in 1985 by Robert Downey…..now don’t you feel silly 😳
That’s not a definition, and I find it rather dubious anyway.
Wasn’t meant to be……why would you answer for miss kitty?? 😕 A need to show your faithfulness to this group…. Perhaps?….. Oh …. I almost have forgotten… Your Bobby……. The one starving for Approval 🙁
No, but I’m not the one that pulled that “word” out of my butt, and won’t define it. I don’t mind using non-dictionary words, but you should be willing able to define it when asked. Etymology (and that sounds like you made that part up to) isn’t a definition.
Willing & able not willing able, obv.
None of us feel silly. Maybe pity. We could use Lewis Carroll words if we wished. They are older than Downey, and just as meaningless.
Your comments are typical of your ilk. (You do know what an ilk is, don’t you?) Since you have no real, logical arguments, you resort to name-calling and making fun of what you don’t understand. Go back and read your rejoinders. They are childish, ignorant babble. How does making fun of our names, education, and differences of opinion make for an open, two-sided dialogue? We would like to have a conversation, except that you think conversation is to lump all of us into a group whether we belong or not, then deride us because you don’t understand us.
Maybe you should try this site: fundamental.org I believe they have your beliefs and use small words you could understand.
Stand up and be counted, young man! 😮
