Okay, I'm sorry I misunderstood. If you had said the site was great, that would have been one thing, but you said the article was "great...especially for IFB." The article was against the Cooperative Program, an SBC program. It seemed to be a, "we're better than you because we do it better" type post. Honestly, I'm not trying to pick a fight with you and I really do believe you didn't mean any harm. I just wanted some clarification. Thanks for your response. In Christ, R. Dean Pesnell, 205-821-4989, rdeanpesnell@... Pastor, Katherwood Baptist Church Officer/Chaplain, Birmingham Police Dept.
