This post is part of an ongoing discussion between Russell Glasser and Pastor Stephen Feinstein. Here are all the previous posts in the series.
As before, I’ll be disabling comments in this post, as it is supposed to be a conversation only between the two of us.
I hope you’ll excuse the amount of time it took to complete this post; your last post was about twice as long as the one before it. Also, you appear to be getting frustrated by the conversation, and I think I’ve identified a significant source of miscommunication between us. It seems to me that your continued efforts to prove God are based on a serious double standard, and in this post I intend to point out where this lies.
Before I get to that though, I’d like to invoke a rule that we discussed before we started. Since I don’t intend to continue this conversation indefinitely, I propose that we wrap it up after a total of five rounds. That means after this, you and I will each write two more posts, with the last ones being dedicated to closing statements. Is that acceptable to you? I could see reducing it to one more, or extending it to three, but I really don’t want to go much longer than that, so it’s your call from there.
With that bit of bookkeeping out of the way, I’ll begin.
