Chris, c'mon man, it is inappropriate for you to address a Sister in Christ as "sweetie". There is no justifiable context for this.

I disagree. Pastors should be paid for their ministry. Paul spoke of the not muzzling the ox that treadeth the corn in the context of pastors for a reason.'
The ox was not to be muzzled so it could eat when it got hungry as it was doing its work. The food it ate was its reward for serving the farmer.
It is the same with the pastor. He should be paid for his service. The same passage states that the laborer is worthy of his hire.
Pastoring is a full-time job and pastors are to be compensated for their service just as God's Word declares.

You have the most judgmental spirit I have ever enountered on the internet. Terms like, Sweetie, honey, brother, and sister warm up an otherwise cold medium. Please get off your high horse and stop giving me a hard time. Why do you keep picking a fight?

Brother and Sister are different.
You know, Chris, I am not picking a fight, I am really not. I don't know where you come from, but that is very inappropriate, where I come from.
As a single man I would not address a Sister that way. More so, as a married man and a Pastor.
Let's do this.
Let's see what Sheep says.
And also, ask your wife what she thinks.
I can guarantee, that my wife would cringe.
We don't need to be "warming" people up. But, I will let the Sisters speak.

If a guy calls me sweetie , I dont like it..makes me feel strange as though hes being condescending or something. And if a pastor were to call me sweetie ..hmm...I need a double take smiley there LOL

I only use the term to warm a very cold and impersonal medium. If you dont use words to reflect warmth online people tend to get offended. Rick I am happily married, very, the implication is not appreciated. Maybe next time you could ask me what I meant. By the way I have called Sheep "sweetie" in e-mails to. To me this is a term of endearment. if sheep was irritated by it I am sure she would have told me already, she did not.
Where I come from "sweetie" is a common term of endearment. If it offends I wont use it......GEEZ

I prefer not to be called "sweetie" but I did not make it an issue. I chose to ignore it. I am used to men calling me terms of endearment hoping to make an impression on me But perhaps under the circumstances we can avoid it from now on

How about using the smilies to set the tone--that's what they are there for.
Why not just call people by their nics or names if you know them. It really works well.
BTW--you have used the term GEEZ--a few times. Where we come from that's just a round about way of swearing and taking the Lord's name in vain.
You really should try the smiley's instead, to get your point across.

Do you really think is was cursing?
RE: Tithing - Rose of Shushan - 07-24-2009 08:28 PM
Geez is a pet peeve of mine...cos we all know how people tend to use Jesus name in vain.Geez seems just a step away...
