After much pondering, Elmer L. Fairbank favored us with:
I know what you are saying and agree in principle, but please read this carefully and see if the phrase "puffed up with their own <fill in the blank>" in the last two sentences doesn't jump out at you? Signaturus rhetoric! Do you really feel that way?
I can see where you are coming from, Elmer. And you are probably right that I need to be more humble. But after a while a guy gets tired of being misunderstood even though he is speaking the truth. Speaking the truth should never prompt an argument and bad feelings. When I mean to point a finger, and make things personal, then I'll let everyone know. Until then I recommend that those who might be offended read a little more carefully and see if I have singled them out in mere paraphrasing the scriptures and the writings of the prophets. Usually they will find that I have not.
