In the past, there wasn't so much of a problem. We were all aware this was a forum for discussion and recognized our differences. No one was offended by opposing perspectives. If someone said something that contradicted the other, he would defend it and explain why, but it was never done spitefully. In fact, most everyone got along pretty well.
I never came here with an agenda. I am not here to shove Catholicism down anyone's throats. That said, I won't cover my faith and pretend it doesn't exist. If this was a forum made up of 98% Catholics and someone said something against Protestantism, I suspect you would stand your ground and defend it because it is your faith -- and you'd be right to do it too. But it would be unfair to call you out as having an agenda just because you defended it.
A few times already, people have pointed out my Catholic faith and tried to make a claim that was off subject -- I said not that was not the point and we needed stick to the subject. I would never do that if I did indeed have an agenda -- I would have taken the bait and went on.
And yes, of course I seek goodwill -- what else would you suggest? I didn't come to make enemies or give anyone a bad day. I think discussion, understanding each others' differences, and finding each others' commonalities is a very good thing. Coming from a Protestant family (with the exception of me), having mostly Protestant friends, and working in a Protestant and Catholic organization, having the discussion between two groups is something I've been passionate about for quite awhile.
It's noted that I'm not welcome with you. I won't address anything you say because, in all honesty, I feel as though I'm walking on eggshells with you. But the last thing I want to do is make an enemy. Hopefully we can reach a common ground, which is ultimately our love for God.
It would not be right for a brother Christian who believes there was one in their mist who has Biblical error to not point that out. It would be the same thing as seeing a fallen person along side of the road and just passes them by without offering help. Even if that person was not looking for help. What good are we if we just let things slide by? Do we think God will over look our inactions to let that person continue along their way without giving them what they needed? If we really pulled off the blanket completely and exposed all of the Catholic beliefs system you would for sure have a very hard time defending it here.
