Living Proof

January 21 2011, 12:02 AM 

William Crump, again, you remove all doubt by simply speaking.....
Why would you need to thwart me with your using the double $$ to hide your cursing? I know how you are already. You give a man enough rope and he will surely hang himself. William, it all starts with a bad heart. Bad language and actions are soon to follow.
Trash in......trash out.
You are in good company here William Crump. Donnie knows and you know that the word you used is vulgar and he would just as soon as condemn his soul to hell than to admit that you or anything that has to do with this site is wrong.
Hey William, wonder why it is usually just me and you having these aggressive conversations?
Maybe no one else would care to have a conversation with you??? This site doesn't get much dialogue because of a good reason.
It is the devil's playground, and you William, are one of the ringleaders.
Good thing, William? You are guaranteed to not get banned here for your vulgar language.
The moderator(s) over at Faithsite.com didn't put up with your 'behavior unbecoming a Christian,' now did they?

Thread: How Easy It Is to Blaspheme

Message: "Evil Begets Evil"

Error: "It hurts, don't [sic] it?"

"Don't" is a contraction for "do not." Without the contraction and arranged in interrogative form, the sentence above reads, "It hurts, do it not?" That is incorrect. The proper phrase in this case is "doesn't it." "Doesn't" is a contraction for "does not." Thus, the sentence above should read, "It hurts, doesn't it?" Without the contraction and arranged in interrogative form, the sentence becomes, "It hurts, does it not?" That is correct.

That same message contained another error: "Find the grammar [sic] errors!"

As we've discussed before, "grammar" is always a noun. A word that is always a noun cannot modify other nouns. Adjectives modify nouns. The correct adjective in this case is "grammatical." Thus, the sentence should read, "Find the grammatical errors!"

I gather that the person who posted the sentence above is still obtuse! happy.gif

Message: "Evil Begets Evil"

Error: "Find the grammar [sic] errors!"

"Grammar" is always a noun. Nouns are not used to modify other nouns. Adjectives modify nouns. The correct adjective here is "grammatical." This has been discussed previously.

Is the one who posted that message still obtuse? happy.gif

Chilidish

January 21 2011, 8:53 AM 

Now that William Crump has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, so to speak with his continued cursing and vulgar language, he still will not admit to being wrong. He would rather correct my grammar than to own up to his barroom language. His remedy is like the child that puts his hands over his ears and says "I'm not listening. I'm not listening."
Tell you what William. You just go ahead and have your fill of ignoring the sin and checking my English grammar. At least with being the English cop maybe you can curtail that smut talk of yours.

A Second Chance: On Condition That...

Please do not waste your time posting messages that are not conducive to learning the English grammar as they will not be published. New or modified rules for this thread are:

  • The subject should be related to a specific grammatical issue or error. (Example: Is it "there" or "their" or "they're"?)

  • The thread from whence the error came may not be referenced. We all know that the error came from a particular thread.

  • The "owner/author" of the presumed error must not be identified.

  • The statement(s) in error should be enclosed in quotation marks and formatted as follows:
    ERROR: "There being instructed that they're musical objects should be moved over their."
  • Your correction may be formatted as follows:
    CORRECTION: "They're being instructed that their musical objects should be moved over there."
  • Provide your explanation, a grammatical rule or possible exceptions to the rule, as well as [a link to] your source if available.

Please respond to the above subject civilly. Otherwise, feel free to direct your message to the appropriate thread where it belongs:

Special 'Den of Vipers' Thread for the Reviled or Slandered--'Getting to Know You'
This thread has been created and reserved for postings by so-called "Christians" who SAY or SPEAK malevolently of others. The main reason for this thread is to prevent other threads that deal with serious biblical or religious discussions from being contaminated with toxic remarks and personal attacks that have NOTHING to do with the topic at hand.

Duh Huh???

January 26 2011, 2:12 AM 

Donnie,
Why would a site that you guys contend to show the evil of the liberals and change agents be doing with a grammar thread and topic?
Comic relief?

Grammar Has Rules and Logic

January 26 2011, 4:01 AM 

So does New Testament Christianity have principles.

The church established by Christ is His bride. The change agents have no business transforming the body of Christ nor are they authorized to modify the doctrine and teachings of Christ and His apostles. Their activities have adverse effects upon the church: confusion, alienation, interference, disruption, division.

OK. There is a "grammar" thread. There is also a "Den of Vipers" thread. And other threads pertain to the activities of the change agents operating in the brotherhood, as well as doctrinal matters. So, there is a variety?

Your assertion that we "contend to show the evil of the liberals and change agents" really proves the point that this site's objective is to continue to warn peaceful congregations of a possible change invasion.

Be Truthful

IF.....you were truthful Donnie....you would only have one thread, 'The Recycle Bin.'
It is the only true place for all this garbage.

I thought Donnie said that all posts not conducive to learning English grammar would not be published. Dave's recent posts only hurl insults and have nothing to do with learning grammar, so I wonder why are they still published here.

Come and Came

January 26 2011, 9:32 AM 

Error: "The meltdown come as expected!"

Correction: "The meltdown came as expected!"

Comment: "Come" is the present tense, whereas "came" is the simple past tense. The context of the sentence above requires the simple past tense.

Rebuttal: Come and Comes

Error: "The meltdown come as expected!"

Correction: "The meltdown comes as expected!"

Comments: The correction is what the writer meant to type.

Reference: This comes from a very good source.

Re: Come and Came

Despite what the writer "meant" to type, by the time the writer got around to writing about it, the alleged meltdown had already occurred. This meant the alleged meltdown occurred in the past, not the present. Hence, instead of typing, "The meltdown comes as expected" (present tense), it would have been more accurate if the writer had typed, "The meltdown came as expected" (past tense). Therefore, the original correction stands.

Sometimes a writer "means" to type something, but an editor's correction can put a much better slant on it.

A Cappella and Acappella

January 26 2011, 12:23 PM 

Error: "I personally do not practice IM regularly in worship but believe both acappella and instrumental worship are acceptable based on the Bible."

Correction: "I personally do not practice IM regularly in worship but believe both a cappella and instrumental worship are acceptable based on the Bible."

Comment: People often spell "a cappella" as one word ("acappella"), but that is incorrect. The correct spelling consists of two Italian words that literally mean "in chapel style"; thus, "a cappella."

Nouns As Noun Modifiers

Rebuttal: Acappella may be correct.

Correction: None

Comment: "Acappella" is the name of Keith Lancaster's Praise Team. It is possible that is what the writer is referring to.

This web site is not part of or approved by any Church!

...........................THE BOOK

What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

Here is the list of players;

5 Godly Elders
10 Not so Godly Elders
120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
