"the term is nearly always used as a pejorative."

That's true, but the term tends to be reserved for those who have the foolish idea that others need their help to be (better) christians.

"You guessing. Someone needs a refresher course in English as a second language."

It's certainly possible that he meant "Your guessing" but whether it's their first language or not those who understand proper English should recognize that it's grammatically correct as written if that's what he intended.

    Your foolishness is astounding. In my not " so good" English, even my 4-year-old nephew knows there was a 4 months difference.

      Wow, 2014- 5 years ago. l am impressed. Let's go down memory lane for a moment, shall we?

      You conveniently forget that you PM me, going off on a fellow LP member back in 2013. Does that ring a bell?

      Hope you don't mind a P.M. 

      I totally agree with what you said and started to reply and quote you and say it bore repeating.  I've noticed that about him, that he is contentious, seems to take it personally if someone disagrees w/ him.  

       

      * Because l did not take you serious back then, you took another route on going after me. Funny how your " he is contentious, seems to take it personally if someone disagrees w/him " turns out to be a trait you have.

       

      That was before I found out what a douche nozzle you were, but yeah...my bad.  As far as being contentious;  pot, meet kettle. Your problem is when you stir up the crap, you do it so vigorously you wind up getting a bunch of it on you.   

      "Fellow LP member".  That makes it sound as though we're all lottery playing comrades in here.  I've never had any exchanges with 95% of the members in here and outside of a dozen or two others, could not care less what the rest of you think of me.  (Unlike you, who seems to validate your self-worth by how many stars you get on a post....and, if you are curious, I'd be glad to tell you why I down-voted your posts - it wasn't b/c of the subject but b/c of your own pathetic need for attention)

      BTW, I didn't go back searching through your posts to find that;  I took a screen shot of it at the time b/c I thought it hilarious that you were calling yourself names.  I figured you were posting w/ two different accounts and hadn't noticed you were still signed into one while thinking you were replying to the other.  You had been a member in here for a couple of yrs. at that time, I figured you had sussed out the quote feature in a reply by then.

        Talk about much ado about nothing and trivial.  Who hasn't said the same thing at least 10 times in a pm about a lp member. No comparison. He agreed with a comment you made.

        I bet you saved it since it was the only time you received such a pm from anyone on lp. 

        Sounds like someone has a bro crush on MIT because no other guy would have saved such a trivial, non-entertaining message. lol lol

        That's what I thought.  I've sent similar messages to quite a few others as a way of showing I was on their side, supported their side of things but simply did not care to wade into the argument. 

        I've made some pretty good online friends after doing that;  many of us email each other and know each others "real names".

          l don't give rats A what you think. It was you that dug deep to bring this gem up from 2014, why, because it bothered you back then, and you hung onto it for 5 years, and you call me a douche? The only reason l brought up your crap was because l am not in the habit of deleting emails. Do us both a favor, just block me or not respond to what l post at all. l have given that advice to a few here as well, but they constantly want to engage me in conversation or get into it with me, and when things do not go their way, well. Goodbye & have a nice life!

            I can't block you; I am a standard, non-paying member.  Why don't you block ME, douche nozzle?  You should know better than to tangle with me by now, but you must be a glutton for punishment.  Unless you block me, I will respond to you if I want and there's not a thing you can do about it.  Your indignant outrage is amusing.

            I told you I didn't dig that up;  I had saved it when you wrote it and I recently posted it to another forum so those people could have a laugh.

                Oh cool a message board fight about something IMO is very trivial, but this fight is like Clemenza telling Michael every so often they need wars "to get rid of the bad blood". Can't remember if that was before or after Clemenza told Rocco to "leave the gun, take the cannoli".

                For those finding the term "Bible-thumping" offensive, Haley Lerner and Natalie O'Neill from the NY Post wrote the article.

                        For those who know the truth, here is what those verses actually say vs the twisted interpretation. There is no reference to trivial things. It actually says the opposite and refers to such things as evil. Beware those who pervert scripture for their own needs.

                         

                        Matthew 5:11-12  New International Version (NIV)

                        11  “Blessed are you when people insult you,  persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  12  Rejoice and be glad,  because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

                        I Agree!

                          Bible thumping???? Hmmmmm. NY Post. Not the most pc title.  A negative inference against Christians.

                          Thank you Mr. Gomez for spreading the  Word and congratulations on your win.

                          I agree.  That phrase implies "a brainless lemming" unable to think.  NY Post you don't get a passing grade on this one.  The winner is doing a good thing that is benefiting people.

                          I Agree!  Roll Eyes

                              Trivial things did not bother The Christ- Matt 5:11,12.

                              Yep and according to the KJV it's:

                              11: "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."

                              and

                              12: "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

                              Interesting how the KJV says "when men" and some of the newer interpretations of it says "when people" and probably because in the Latin Vulgate it's "maledixerint".

                              When I was on the Christian message boards, they yelled at people that didn't quote from the KJV.
