Based on my recent Facebook conversation with him, wherein he attacks me... kind of... but disputes none of my allegations, it's pretty clear he's confused.
We read about "God's will(tm):"
And that's fascinating, because one of the things I learned in a philosophy class a long time ago was that one way we would know that God is talking to us (rhetorically) is by running out the string and challenging our own disbelief.
For example, it would be unlikely that God would order any of us to, say, murder every 3rd person.
We know this because we believe we know the nature of God, an entity capable of a wide variety of things but likely not capable of violating his own commandments (Thou shall not murder.)
Thus, it is, for me, at least, that anywhere in the will of God is the idea that God would want someone to run for political office and use lies... in any way, manner shape or form to accomplish that feat.
So, Jon, perhaps the thing to do here if God's will is the basis for one's actions... then stop lying.
Because frankly, Jon, I have a genuinely hard time believing, for one minute, that God would help someone who believes they have to lie to succeed.
Introspection, Jon. A self-assessment that would explain to you why you're not getting the things you want.
Oh, you can fool people for awhile, Jon. You can pass yourself off as this honest, honorable, Christian individual.
But sooner or later, they find out that it's a sham... a false perception.
And you, as a man of God which you claim to be, should be the LAST person on EARTH to engage in this kind of activity; engage in the very actions you so loudly and hypocritically condemn in others.
You reflexively, for example, lump me in as "liberal," by assigning me "liberal friends" as if "liberal friends" were untermenschen. I ask you to name one. You have no reply.
See, Jon, it's this kind of playground BS that keeps you down. It's the kind of thing that shows a complete lack of maturity. It's right up there with lying about your education. It's unnecessary crap, like hitting the ball directly into the net.
So, how do you fix this?
Simple. You stop.
You stop lying. You stop exaggerating. You stop believing that your lies and childishness make no difference.
Because they do.
You do what I TOLD you to do two years ago: You let time pass so you can prove you've reformed.
Because if you don't, me and you are going round and round and no matter who you run against politically, you will also be running against me.
And how's that worked out for you so far?
