Okay, this is enough. Discussing borderline off-topic doctrinal issues
is one thing, but personal attacks do not belong on this list. Indeed,
not even in our communication repertoire as christians, be it
o(ff|n)li(st|ne). Period.

I have two suggestions:

1. We let this thread die a very sudden and quick death.

2. If people feel there is a need for a doctrinal statement, let's
   first discuss what the exact purpose of such a statement should be,
   without going into doctrinal details. Once a consensus about that
   is reached, it will be much easier to think about the content.

Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh, but I think there's better things to
do than discuss who is a real christian and who not. The sword is
God's tool to circumcise our heart, not ours to fight "infidel


Reminder to self: Must spend more time praying and less time talking.
