A Monkey Boy Comments

I just received this comment from another monkey boy who is ashamed of his baptized name. He wrote:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post “Bag o’ Snakes”:

I’m an arrogant ass who won’t even state my name, yet call others out on being ashamed of their baptism.

I repent of my ways and for outright stealing private correspondence and then posting it publicly, proving once and for all that I do not possess the smallest trace of testicular fortitude. Instead of dealing with the exegetical and theological issues, I would rather slander other brothers in Christ.

Why? Because I’m sure Jesus would approve.

And so would Jack Bauer.

Well, you are an arrogant ass (ignorant too) and I don’t blame you for not stating your name. But let me answer your argument point for point, to demonstrate your ignorance.

I only call on monkey boys to state their real name because the Fearless Leader — Beelzeblog — has declared that I am ashamed of my baptized name because I host a fully documented anonymous attack blog. Of course, this argument is just plain silly because he refuses to acknowledge his well-deserved reputation for harassing, bullying, and intimidating anyone who criticizes the Kult. Furthermore, the Great Protector doesn’t account for all the times that he adopted pseudonyms on the local listserv to defend his “good name,” which is a subject for another website. Frankly, if anyone has reason to be ashamed of their baptized name, it’s Douglas James Wilson, founder of this century’s most malevolent non-Christian cult. But I think we’ve established he has no shame.

Your second paragraph asserts that I stole “private correspondence.” This is not true and your argument (and your anger) disappears the moment you admit the truth. You also assert that you “do not possess the smallest trace of testicular fortitude,” and I must agree. After all, you are a monkey boy who is ashamed of his baptized name.

You continue by asserting that I refuse to deal with “the exegetical and theological issues.” And I have to admit that this is true because better men than me have already demolished the FV seven times from Sunday. But the FVists insist that these biblical scholars and trained theologians have misrepresented them, which immediately makes this a character issue. Someone’s lying. Personally, I find it hard to believe that seven Reformed denominations and countless micro-denominations have condemned the Federal Vision based upon numerous misrepresentations made by honorable men in the Church, which is one reason I focus on the FVists’ deficient moral characters as witnessed by their email exchange titled “Bag o’ Snakes.” Maybe you would understand this point better if I named the post “House o’ Liars.”

Monkey Boy continues, stating, “I would rather slander other brothers in Christ.” First of all, it’s not slander if it’s in writing; it’s libel. Second, it’s neither libel nor slander if it’s true. And third, I do not count any of these Bozos brothers in Christ. The closest biblical definition for them is “false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matt. 7:15). And I point to the email exchange “Bag o’ Snakes” as one more proof of their two-faced duplicity (is that redundant?).

Finally, Monkey Boy writes, “Why? Because I’m sure Jesus would approve. And so would Jack Bauer.” Yes, Jesus does approve of exposing hypocrites but methinks you don’t know this because your too busy watching TV instead of reading your Bible.

Thank you.

PS: You really need to do something about your pent-up anger.

Wow MT,

I am amazed. It is amazing that when you read your Bible, especially after a bit like this one, how opened up your eyes are to how Jesus did deal with hypocrites, snakes and liars.

My stomach is a bit upset.

But, just for the record, no one in positions of authority who have to bring into the "light" those in the dark want anyone to know where they live lest they have to deal with their wrath later. Oh, the reason? They weren't repentant and the Law is not for the Righteous. Generally, as an example, a law enforcer does not like to live in the same town he enforces the law because the one addressed might come after him on off hours. Judges are the same. Law enforcement provides security for them too seeing the memory is long for an unrepentant one sentenced to serve time for the crime convicted of being guilty of.

This is a rant coming from one of his group, that post? It sure doesn't sound like they want to reconcile with your truth? Does make for a case that they simply are not Christian men in the Brotherhood of those who also suffer in the world.

1Pe 5:9 Resist him and be firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.


One more note that is that you bring a good sense and meaning to this Proverb:

Pro 26:4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself.
Pro 26:5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.

Something now tells me they are caught up in folly so as not to be ashamed and become wise?

What do you think?

Ah, don't answer that as I believe I know what your answer would be!

anyway
regards
Michael

Michael,

Sometimes I don’t know how to read you, except that you always appear harmless. But there’s a cryptic, or maybe not-so-cryptic, feel to your “for the record” paragraph. That said, you have connected the most important dot of this controversy: the Federal Visionists don’t see this as brother seeking to get along with brother. They see this as an opportunity to impose their will on the Reformed church. They are bad people with bad intentions and they won’t stop even after the PCA puts out LAP. They will continue to conspire and scheme for ways to infect or disrupt churches, so that Wilson may grow his beloved CREC.

Mt,

the "But, just for the record..." is to simply say I now understand better why you want to remain anonymous after that sillied comment you received from the "monkey boy" posted that developed the post and brought me to "want" to make a comment after reading it and point out in my cryptic sort of way that guy is using a double standard. You are not doing anything differently than Jesus when He "brought" into the light the hypocrites, snakes and liars that surrounded Him.

Neither would Paul be accused by them if they actually believe it to be Paul the Apostle doing similar especially when you consider he is the one who penned this:

Eph 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Eph 5:7 Therefore do not become partners with them;
Eph 5:8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
Eph 5:9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),
Eph 5:10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
Eph 5:11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
Eph 5:12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.

Who, with the Holy Ghost in them would write thus:

"I'm an arrogant ass"? and then not be ashamed. There certainly is irony in that whole sentence!

Michael,

The ironies surrounding this controversy make the Federal Vision a complete joke. You identified one, which is really a microcosm of the whole.

Oh yeah, MT,

How does one "steal" emails? I might want to steal yours and use them against you.

Hey, at least I am outfront about why!!!

Yes, they premise their argument on a lie and proceed to build a rock-solid case contingent on more lies. It’s a remarkable dynamic that takes place in those who have resolved to stiffen their neck and harden their heart. And it’s nowhere for a true child of God to abide.
