I do agree, but it is because it is about Yah that it is important to be truthful.
We do have to stand against untruth where it is seen, no matter what. Especially when it is spoken by people we care about and can effect a message or peoples decisions on certain things, i.e. circumcision.
When I say that I don't mean that I am right and Craig is wrong, I mean I want a good and useful discussion or rebuttal on why I am not right so that we can find out other problems in our thinking to them move forward towards truth. Swalchy has done this for Craig, and the only response for the months work on it was a banning from the forums as far as I can work out, and that is not a useful discussion.
Yes big deal that some people have different views - but these views need to be explored and found out why they differ. We aren't all right for sure, but there is always something that is right, and through discussion and humility that truth must be teased out as much as possible.
At the moment Craig promotes as a fact that Paul was who Craig thinks he was. If it was just his opinion and he treated it as such it wouldn't be as bad. But this is promoted as fact to be taken on board and learnt, and then that also will then effect what people do and who they trust.
It is wrong to promote anything falsely - especially when it effects peoples decisions.
I don't think there is any anti Craig thing here, I think Swalchy is very disappointed in how a person he looked up to could be so illogical - but everything else was done against the work Craig presented, and not against Craig personally.
I know Craig wants to get to the truth as much as any of us, and this is why I feel it is important. I feel he has sold himself short on this one, waaay short and is giving out false information. I just don't believe he want's to do this at all.
More ramble - sorry.
