This log is a continuation of a previous article.

GoddessUbasti: Also, is that your real name? i
Daniel: Yes.
GoddessUbasti: heh, It's good no one's wanted to doxx ii you, you'd make it easy peasy.
Daniel: What's to dox? Here is my name! Doxxing over.
GoddessUbasti: How did you make your way onto IRC? iii Oh.
Daniel: I've used IRC on and off since 2004.
GoddessUbasti: Never mind, I misread what you said. My bad. No, doxxing would include finding where you live, etc.
Daniel: I live in Oklahoma.
GoddessUbasti: Your home address. Silly.
Daniel: Eh so what if you had that.
GoddessUbasti: Indeed, as I wouldn't hurt a fly...but i'm not everyone on IRC.
Daniel: My website is registered to the address I used to live at in Connecticut and nobody ever messed with me all that time.
GoddessUbasti: Okay. Well...you're fortunate.
Daniel: One time I got a pizza, but I think it was someone I specifically did a cash in the mail deal with.
GoddessUbasti: lol..okay... Do you go out and socialize?
Daniel: I like to sing karaoke. Other than that most of my socialization is with other church members. I don't care for the people of the world.
GoddessUbasti: Yet you're in here, and you're of the impression we're all "people of the world." hmmm
Daniel: Well contending is another thing.
GoddessUbasti: Contending?
Daniel: For the faith. arguing about scripture.
GoddessUbasti: That's more apologetics, but...that doesn't really fit you. :) So we'll use your word. Contending. You're an interesting sort, Daniel.
^Peter^: Daniel, what concerns me is that if you "don't care for the people of the world", how you would sensibly have concern for and follow scripture. Mar_16:15 iv And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
GoddessUbasti: Indeed, he doesn't want to be around unbelievers, whom he calls his enemies.
Daniel: heh I had a feeling that would get picked on.
^Peter^: Those enemies will never hear the Gospel.
Daniel: I mean that I am not of the world, I don't like being in it or around them.
^Peter^: Daniel, not picked on, just question your rationale.
GoddessUbasti: Then how will you share the Gospel.
Daniel: Well for one I spend most of my day doing so online. And for another, I try to mention it in conversation when I'm out there, like at the bar.
GoddessUbasti: At the bar. Sigh.
Daniel: And for another still, I go to things like Harvest Crusade holding signs and warning thousands.
^Peter^: Daniel, so convincing people on line by telling them that you hate them??
Daniel: I don't open with that...
^Peter^: :)
Daniel: Check out my blog, there's plenty of examples. GoddessUbasti, what's wrong with going to bars? That's where the karaoke is... Not that it would be wrong to go just for a drink.
^Peter^: Gospel Karaoke great.
GoddessUbasti: I loved to go out dancing before I was saved. But now that I've saved, I know that's not a good environment for me to be in.
Daniel: It would be cool if I was more creative to come up with alternative lyrics to sing to pop songs. lol What's wrong with dancing?
GoddessUbasti: Dancing where people are doing drugs, getting drunk, finding people to hook up with...
Daniel: So?
GoddessUbasti: Not a good place for a Christian to be.
Daniel: That's ... the world! Well how else will you warn them!?
GoddessUbasti: I can encounter the world just fine at the grocery store. Or at work.
Daniel: Is this not hypocritical of you to say now?
GoddessUbasti: No, Daniel.
Daniel: Oh, okay.
GoddessUbasti: There are plenty of environments for the unsaved that aren't like bars and dance clubs.
Daniel: If you can't go to a bar without stumbling... you lack self control and that means you aren't saved.
^Peter^: Drunken revelers are generally poor listeners to the Gospel.
Daniel: Nobody wants to hear the gospel, be it at the bar drunk, or at the grocery store shopping. I find it to be easier at the bar where at least there is some expectation of sitting down and having a conversation.
GoddessUbasti: Daniel, I was timid to share the Gospel before I was saved, too. I didn't have the Holy Spirit in me to give me boldness.

    Only the weak drink.

  3. Scripture says it is those who are offended by drinking that are the weak ones. Romans 14:

    21 It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.
