Thank you for bringing this to the faith board. I was so touched by following this thread back. These are the spiritual issues that should be being discussed. Why would anyone have been offended by this?

Is it possible for the spirit to offend? Writing is a form of art. Therefore it can be a spiritual expression of a carnal desire with power to lift one over the cross.

The cross is a symbol of sin. When we make a mistake we XXXX it out. Jesus was nailed to a cross to symbolize his gross error in claiming to be the Messiah. He lifted himself over the cross and has the power to also lift each one of us.

I love to read anything that is spiritual. Therefore I recommend to Bob, that he broaden the parameters of his judgement of whether or not to caution or block someone from posting.

What is the spirit and how do you discern it? If it feels similar to the posts that trail back through this thread, it's probably the spirit. If it gives you a "bad movie" feeling, it's probably not. Discernment is not always easy. It is a spiritual gift that has to be learned, exercised, developed. Cummon Bob, you can do it.

Actually, with all due respect, I admire Bob for trying to keep out the trash. It is not an easy job, and requires a lot of his time and great commitment to the cause. THanks Bob. You're doing not too bad. And, how about us? Do you think we have hope of overcoming our prejudices and judgementality?

We love you Bob. Thanks for bringing us together.

ps. I purposely threw in a couple of words to see if you could catch the contrast.
