    I read through that thread. It was HILARIOUS. Too many people trying to overspiritualize things. In a rare moment, I agree with you. Yes, there ARE things that are true that are not explicitly discussed or mentioned in scripture. It’s true that blue is my favorite color, Italian is my favorite food, and Journey used to be my favorite band to listen to in high school, but none of these things are found in scripture.

    I think "Don't Stop Believing" is somewhere in scripture.

    I know a guy that said “Wheel In the Sky” was a reference to Ezekiel.

    Was it really so bad? I sometimes wish I would be that kind of naive again and never subscribed to a BF. Knowledge has its dark sides.

    According to the liner notes of Journey's Time3 compilation, this started out as a poem called "Wheels In My Mind" by Diane Valory, the wife of Journey bassist Ross Valory. Robert Fleischman, the band's first vocalist, wrote new lyrics, and guitarist Neal Schon wrote the melody on acoustic guitar in the back seat of a station wagon while the band was driving between shows.

    There were others discussing what the lyrics meant, and a couple of them brought up Ezekiel. (My grandsons name!)

    I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with Ezekiel.

    Good lord.

    "The Bible is truth"
    "How do you know?"
    "Because God is truth"
    "How do you know?"
    "Because the Bible says so"
    "Buuuut ... how do you know the Bible is truth?"

    Same old circular serpent biting its own tail ... eek. :confused::confused::confused:

    Anyhow, with regard to the OP, I don't think Paul was referring to the normal disagreements that we all have, and that we normally carry out with grace and maturity around here even when things get a bit heated from time to time. If you read a bit further you can see that he's talking about people who claimed the resurrection had already happened, and so pulled the rug of faith out from under their listeners, because if the resurrection has already happened and you missed it, what point is there in trusting Christ any longer? You didn't make the cut, so ... eat up, drink up, sin up; that's all you got left ya poor sod.

    I think it’s a bit too unrealistic to expect Christians never to debate things or disagree. We’re just not going to always see eye to eye on things, including some theological matters. For instance, some Christians believe in Universal Reconciliation. I don’t. It’s a nice thought, but too many scriptures indicate to me that many people are not saved and end up in hell. For the Christians that believe in UR, they’re certainly entitled to believe what they want. It’s not my place to judge the sincerity or accuracy of their Christianity, as that is for God alone to do, but, at the same time, I’m free to believe they are in error on that matter. Of course, just because we disagree doesn’t mean we’re entitled to be horrible or disrespectful to each other.

    I don't think anyone here expects that.

    Exactly. That's the point the OP was making.

    That’s how I try to conduct my life. To be in this forum one has to be like this to a quite an extent. We are quite a diverse bunch on the theological spectrum.

    Exacately. :) What we argue matters, but how we argue matters more.
