Not that I am aware of. I thought this label was one you proudly wore. I 
certainly meant no disrepect. Know that! For example, when it comes to the 
Abortion issue, I proudly consider myself extremely Liberal.

I think we are all in agreement here, or at least I would hope.

Finally, IMHO, the Greek itself will not ultimately be the deciding factor 
in resolving this issue. The parts are simple enough, but putting them 
together is what "theology" is all about.

As Dr. Hoyel E. Bowman was fond of saying: You can provide support for any 

To which I might add: What better way for God to reveal our hearts!

Anyway, I find Carl's position (on tongues) on the opposite side of 
credible, but I certainly have no disrepect for him. Ultimately, IMHO, a 
person's theology can not be detached from his or her volition... that 
includes me as well!

Like the guy who said he would give his right hand to be ambidextrous; I'd 
give my right hand to know what Carl knows about the Greek!

I must again take full responsibility! Please accept my apologies!

Thank you,
