I thank several of you who replied. Unfortunately, I received one response
(below) that tells me I may have offended at least one person. I truly
regret this and apologize. I am new to this service (2 days!) and am also a
neophyte with the subject matter. I only mentioned I was a Christian
because I read an earlier message that informed another new user that not
all subscribers to this list are in fact Christians. I thought I could avoid
getting the same response by stating my own point of reference. I had no
earthly idea my response could be taken the way it was by at least one
person. Again, my apologies if I offended anyone.
I'm a saved, born-again believer myself, but I found your response
arrogant and offensive. You not only called everyone who disagrees
with you a non-Christian, but belittled their arguments at the same
time with a flippant remark (even if a lot of this stuff is completely
erroneous). This does not a good witness make.
