Interesting to Watch – But Is It Productive?

As you know, we have been engaged in a somewhat confusing discussion with Tonne.  It’s been going on for about a week now.  While he hasn’t really repeated himself, in all the time he has been commenting, he has really addressed much specifically.

Should I continue to post his comments?  You’re the readers.  You decide.

    Thought I would vote and post a comment. Tonne’s original comments were valuable in exposing the kind of mindset that must exist in order for the pimps to be effective. However, with each additional post Tonne has proven that he is not really interested in a discussion he just wants to keep spouting the same nonsense using different words. He does not answer simple, specific questions put to him, he does not use any Biblical basis for his positions so to me his posts have become a grand waste of time. Organizing his comments into a single post will serve the purpose of reminding us of why doctrine is so important.

    wow… i go away for a few and i miss everything! i am absolutely baffled by most of tonne’s comments, especially the responses that don’t actually… respond to anything anyone is saying.

    based on that, i’m not sure i see the point of attempting to continue a one-way conversation. but i am interested in seeing how this turns out.

    Brothers, my heart screams for folks who are so deceived by this moralistic theraputic/word faith/prosperity/name it and claim it/spooky/new age deism that has so pervaded our society. I especially mourn over the fact that so many of my countrymen have fallen in step with the custom name given above to the “theology” of many like Tonne.

    May I suggest a book that I believe speaks well to this very situation which seems to have over taken the black religious community: The Decline of African American Theology by Thabiti Anyabwile.

    Tonne, I hope meaningful dialogue takes place between yourself and another believer of historic orthodox Christian faith. I fear that many if not all people who hold to the teachings of the men and women for whom the original thread was about are preaching and believing another gospel for which Paul gives the harshest words possible. Gal. 1:6-9

    I ordered the book today, just now. Don’t tell my wife. She hates it when I buy another book I already don’t have room for.

  5. Robert Says:

    wow. this is unbelievably condescending and childish.

    • mhjones2001 Says:

      Sorry. I forgot how to use my own system.

      What do you think is condescending? The poll? A comment? What?

      If it the poll, why do you think it’s condescending? I wasn’t talking to Tonne.

    LOL!! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by Thabiti’s work. His sensitivity and wisdom shines forth in such a way where it’s clear he has been mulling over our countrymen’s spiritual state for quite some time. The book is also a great conversation piece amongst the black and religious.

    Please do share your thoughts on the book as you read or after you’ve completed it.

    I just have to speak on this subject did Jesus speak about homosexuallity. The answer is emphatically YES!!! I prayed about this because so many people are confused and double minded. God showed me exactly when. In the beginning. Jesus is God, God and Jesus are one. So how do we preach they are one but not yet believe God and Jesus are one when its convient for man. The bible says there is a way which seemeth right unto a man; but the end therefore are the ways of death. Everyone believes in psalms, proverbs and prophecy in old testament But Not that Jesus was speaking in the Old Testament when him and God were One, Are still one and will always be one. We are not bound by the Laws of the Old Testament, But we truly need to acknowledge that when God spoke to us in the old testament he was Still Jesus. He came in the Flesh with a Name but still God. Jesus is just a Name for God… Thanks for your Blog
