Bro. Mike T. I agree with Steve. No offense was taken. Just a mention that we have been down this road once before. Each time you travel a road, be it the first or the one-hundredth, you can always find something new to look at. I just don't think like most people. The things I say are just thoughts that I ponder within myself. Many of them are from someplace in my mind that questions the things contained in the philosophical boxes of conventional thinking.

Subject: Re: [PastorsForum] 50,000 dies without Christ Mike T., I know I was not offended and I doubt Mike C. was offended. When I asked - "Haven't we been here before?" it was because I vaguely remember Mike C. and I (and others) having a similar discussion. I was just making the comment in the spirit of de ja vu (sp?). There is no offense in that. I don't mind discussing the issues again as it seems to be the very issues on everyone's minds this week. In fact I will be preaching this week and seeking to address the tragedy and people's questions. Besides, this seems to be the usual thing on the forum. Discuss something, it simmers down and then a few months later it pops up again. How many times have we discussed baptist history (and I am not even a baptist) or music styles. None of this offends me at all. Sometimes it gets a little boring but offensive - no way. You are right in that the present situation does bring up a lot of the questions. I think in the previous discussion it was more focused on What is the basis of our condemnation? and this led to the issue of what happens to children who die in infancy. So relax, no offense taken, discuss away. If there is an elephant in the room I am not one to avoid it.
