Krispy, since I know you so well I do understand where you're coming from. I know you care about the Lord's commands and you believe in protecting the "sheep". What Robert and Chanin said above is so true though. I think when we (Body of Christ) speak against sin, it can't be just because we are going "by the Book"..........there has to be a great grieving towards those who are lost in their sin or deceived in sin. Our ultimate goal must always be for reconcilation and restoration. Unfortunately, on the internet many cannot see the "grieving" of the person typing. They just know they don't like their words. I'm a pretty matter of fact person, like you, so I know people get offended by me. The thing is, people who are offended, don't see my stomach in knots. This is not a good medium for clear communication-----especially with heartfelt concerns. I know you are speaking from the heart----though you ex Marines are a bit rough around the edges---unlike us ex Air Force people---gentle souls that we are
Cindy... by the way... did you know we're expecting a baby anyday? This will be our fourth son. ...my wife has given up on having a girl.Krispy

Hey Krisp,You're all right brother. That line is 'old' and cleverly misplaced.
Am I rough around the edges? Yea... and God's been smoothing some of that out. I've a long ways to go. However, people need to not be so quick to be offended or hurt.
