Rather, I was trying to avoid your derailing a thread
I don't take issue with whether or not my question gets answered on this particular thread. For that matter, I don't mind if I don't get an answer at all (although, as it happens, a couple of Catholic posters have offered their thoughts on it). What I mind is this sort of thing:
Did you honestly expect that these Early Church Fathers opined about the IC, a 19th century dogma? Or are you rather just being tediously argumentative?
Can you name any theologian from any church from any period who believes the IC and rejects the sinlessness of the Theotokos? Just one is sufficient for me to accept that you are not just being argumentative.
Silly debates are good for no one spiritually. If you have an genuine interest in the question of whether it follows that a rejection of the dogma of the sinlessness of the Theotokos by certain Fathers implies their rejection of the Roman dogma of the IC, you need not sulk;
Peter J, I think staying on topic and avoiding silly debates is good intellectually and spiritually and that is all I have tried to do. Sorry you disagree.
Anyway, I obviously failed in this thread, which now bears little resemblance to the OP.
and all such treatment that occurs on this forum.
You have over 4000 posts and yet repeatedly complain about this forum. Why?
I don't have a problem with receiving or not receiving an answer.
