It is not anyone’s job here to defend the church, or to evaluate others and determine their opposition or support of Adventist beliefs.
I’d say it’s difficult to tell when someone misconstrues what’s been written or just misunderstands. If you think someone didn’t understand your post, it’s probably best to restate it using different language.
When someone states they’re offended and it’s not obviously comical, they probably are.
Yes, there have been several posters here that quite literally and in so many words demanded apologies from those who disagreed with them or who made statements that were not apologetic and challenged the church. GregCox the most prominent of those in recent memory. I also find that very difficult. It’s one thing to express that you perceive you were attacked and express unhappiness, but to then continue and demand an apology for oneself is inappropriate, IMO. That’s true in almost any situation, not just here.
If you’re not having fun here, why be here?
