A reply like this is very unhelpfull, and does not further any discussion.
The least you could have done is give Scripture references, which then
could be discussed. Now you only say I am right and that is not only not
helpful, but also very annoying and alienating.

So reconsider Burgy's letter again, please. If you do not, most of us will
conclude that Burgy is right and you are wrong (unscriptural?)
