I actually found that a bit disturbing - since you can know if you are a Christian or not and know if someone else is or not too - and that other people's souls are our business. Just from that little bit - I think he is ignorant of what is in the Bible.
Hey Melissa ~ Thanks for your thoughts! I think in this case, John is mostly talking about Christians discussing issues on message boards and deciding by a sentence or two that another person is or is not a Christian. I personally cannot read another's heart by that much they've shared. And honestly...I can know a person my whole life and not know their full heart. Only God can do that.I don't believe John is saying that others' souls are not our concern (read his book I'm OK -- You're Not to get a better idea of his thinking and ideas), he's just pointing out that it's not our call to say what is in another's heart. I've made it clear, when I reviewed his book on my blog, that I don't agree with everything he says. I do, however, appreciate his viewpoint on some things. Thanks again!
