They talk slow for us because we're stupid

Why are there so many Christians on the internet who write things like this?

Sample paragraphs: "The reason why this debate is an important one is that it challenges a prevailing stream of consciousness regrettably found among many believers these days. Pinto, and similar individuals like him, have taught numerous, undiscerning Christians to live spiritual lives that are, for lack of a better term, conspiratorially driven.

They are being told that church history has been largely shaped by sinister, dark forces that lurk in the shadows. Whether they be the Illuminati, Jesuits, or whatever, those forces ceaselessly toil to disrupt God’s purposes and the lives of Christians everywhere. If Christians are just only made aware of those forces and the evil they attempt to perpetrate and learn to identify and avoid them, why the church in America would be in much better spiritual health."

The writer of the above words comes across as a juvenile intellectual who is merely masturbating his vanity by talking down to Christians like he is talking to five year olds. This really is the common element in these types. You see it in Michael Horton, in James White, in the John MacArthurites like this blogger, it's all over the internet.

One gets the sense that none of these individuals are fully developed adults. Certainly not fully developed Christians. One gets the sense that these people have never been against the world. They've never gone against the easy current of the world. They've always been going *with* the easy current of the world. They've never had to engage in spiritual warfare because they've never been on the spiritual battlefield. These people are pure examples of churchians.

Listen to the White Horse Inn. They talk to their audience as if it is an audience of Kindergarteners. And they get so much obvious pleasure in doing so. Listen to the silly MacArthurites (silly for among other reasons their Mormonish Dispensationalism that they have no clue MacArthur clings to because he's published 500 books and is too invested in it to come off it), they all have the same juvenile, half-angry, belittling attitude with a quick finger to ban and delete anybody who calls them on it. A very smug sense of being secure in the world and with attendant numbers to go along with that.

What does the Bible say about having numbers on your side? You don't need them. For battle anyway. Yet the churchians need them because to do what they do which is to mock and giggle and yank chains and engage in fallacious rhetoric and propaganda (they love to accompany their posts with mocking graphics) they have to have the world on their side. They need the world on their side to do it as smugly and easily and with the degree of juvenile pleasure as they do it with.

“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” 1 John 2:20-24
From the essence of the NEW covenant: “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.” (Heb. 8:10-11)
Read or write this to a churchian and and Pastor “Diotrephes” will kick you out. I know from first hand experience!

Joe, I know, and the answer is as you've shown: read the Bible. Read it complete. Get the living language into you (us). Then we are self-motivated to find true biblical doctrine and get real understanding.

It took me a couple of days to recognize that blogger, Fred Butler. Back in my earlier days, I commented a few times on a blog called Expository Thoughts. I got kicked off for quoting scripture. Later, they removed my comments and lied about what I said. They are TMS grads - The Masters Seminary.

He, Dan Phillips, their friend Frank Turk (centuriOn) if they are representative of the Masters Seminary (I know Turk probably didn't go there) it doesn't say a lot for that institution. They are full on trolls. Mocking, dishonest trolls. And having them lie about you after deleting and banning you is par for the course on so many sites on the internet. They justify their actions that way, dishonestly
