Default Re: Does "Baptist" Mean to a Baptist What "Recovery" Means to an LCer?

Frankly, few things bother me more than the arrogance of those who think they have the ground to direct other's decisions, and use fear and misinformation to do so. I hate bullying. I was picked on as a kid and the lack of confidence that produced was exploited by LC bullies. So I guess it's kind of a personal prejudice and crusade.

If anyone can convince me that no one in the LSM/LC or any other LC is being manipulated to stay there, then my work here is done.

Don't worry, I'm not as scary as I sound.

By the way,

I did not get involved in the forums to play Mr. Nice guy.

It is time for light to shine. John 1:5, And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 3:20-21, "For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God." NASB

I saw too much bully behavior and too many sincere brothers and sisters abused. Likewise I saw too much pure work of the Lord damaged.

I appreciate posters as OBW and Igzy who bring things into the light and are themselves willing to be brought into the light. Same with respect to Oregon, Ohio, Indianna and any other state. We can all learn a lot and many can be helped. May the free exchange continue.

I am not discouraged by critical words nor do I swoon when someone give a positive promotion.

Hope, Don Rutledge
