So… this post has caused somewhat of a stir today.
And to be honest it has been nice to be involved in what I feel has been a fairly gracious dialogue between 2 differing opinions.
That is, of course, until I discovered the reason for the stir. Someone has posted a link to the post on a discussion forum on this site and started a discussion of my ‘young idealism’ and how I must be one of the ‘Twenty somethings who just lap it up at seminary’. But all of that I’m ok with.
It’s this comment that saddens and infuriates me
I read her testimony…one of those “light from dark” experiences, and that can often cause someone to run to the extremes, in a desire to be completely sold out (been there, got the t-shirt…*wince, wince*)…
To the person who wrote that and the people who read it and think that its ok – I am happy to dialogue with people who disagree with my theology. I am happy for you to make snide remarks about it to your friends, in an effort to feel superior to me. But that you think its ok to take someone’s personal experience of the love and grace of Jesus and make fun of it, speaks volumes of your character.
