I had no idea!

A friend of mine wrote to say he was banned from a certain board for displaying 'churlishness' of late.  They would not answer which particular posts were the problem.  *Sigh* What a tragedy.  So I did what I always do, I go to the Scriptures to find out what to do.  This is what I found... I mean, I can imagine how upsetting it is to be banned, although it hasn't happened to me, as far as I can remember.  But wow!  I had no idea it was so serious!  I missed these verses for so long.
LUKE 12:10, "And everyone that says a word against the Son of Man, that will be forgiven; But he that is churlish and/or sarcastic will not be forgiven and shall have their posting privileges revoked."

MARK 3:29, "Whoever has 'issues' will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of everlasting sin.  And shall no longer be able to point out the log in his brother's eye."

MATTHEW 12: 31-32 "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but if you display an attitude problem shall not be forgiven. And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak cynically or with sarcasm, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come.  And shall no longer be able to try and stop his brother from swallowing a camel."
Now I know why people get so upset when there happen to be people out defending the truth by using the devices of sarcasm and wit.  Heaven help us, we're all going to hell!
