Well, John, I would agree with you there.  Bashing is not in the Christlike
action list of things to do.  I am commanded to love the bashers, but I
certainly don't have to either like them or tolerate being around them.

But I was referring to those who try, out of love, to help me be "saved."
My response of gratitude will go a lot further towards helping them
understand the true gospel than my shunning then.  In my highly Baptist
community, our Church has gained a fairly good reputation after decades of
good works, many of those works done in concert with those of other faiths.

So I try to separate the wheat from the chafe.
