First, I think it's a shame to bump the Dose of Spurgeon for updates, but the friends of AHA/DOH! (note: after 2 weeks of looking at these acrostics, I am still amused by them. I can't believe nobody looked at those and said, "um, guys? maybe we need something that will cause other people to take us a little more seriously?")(says the guy whose blog is named "TeamPyro" where they call themselves PyroManiacs, so there's that) have linked me via Facebook to the start of the rejoinders:
When it went live, I was entering a cave in the Ozarks in a place where my phone had no signal; I responded on FB as soon as the signal returned (briefly). I am now seated at my PC with a stable internet connection, and you can see that I am putting this ahead of lunch and ahead of a much-need nap after canoeing 9 miles down the Buffalo River.
My response to the AHA counterposts is as follows (slightly amended):
I ask every person who reads the series of responses at AHA's blog to do 3 things:Also, Steve Hays has posted a note about one aspect of this exchange. I thank him for it as it may be useful to anyone following along.
 read the AHA website (particularly, read the 5 tenents, no compromise, the difference, funding philosophy, and then the following links from ChurchRepent.com: one two three (for "three," browse until you feel like you've had plenty)
 read the 3 blog posts I wrote
 then read AHA's response (I'll link to part 1, and then I'll imagine that you are able to navigate the internet with more finesse than someone from the 1950's if/when the balance of these posts are made)
I am utterly satisfied that any English-speaking reader can decide for himself what to think.
I consider this topic closed. The comments will also remain closed.
