Now Shaker and the JW have their noodles together and are questioning the Archbishops motive for holding his job.

You seem to be trying to maintain that you have read Welby's statement in full yet have read absolutely nothing by the poster known as Shaker on this forum. No surprise to me.

Quote:
An atheist and a JW suggesting he's in it for the money.

Don't know about the JW. Which atheist suggested this? Where and when? It's a short thread: specific posts, please. Not difficult to find.

Quote:
Whatever Shaker, try and make up your mind. Praise the Archbishop for his courage and honesty or crucify him by wanting to find out his motives for holding office, with the nasty suggestion that it might be the money.


Where and when was this done, you cretinous Canadian clot?

What I think the Arch bishop needs is a nice bible study with a JW so he can have his lack of faith restored.

I agree with what others have said on this thread;  it is quite usual to have doubts sometimes and "dry" periods.  That's all he meant.  He's a human being and a jolly good one too by all accounts, excellent choice for AofC.

Makes a change as most of Jesus disciples were good for nothing slaves according to Jesus is that not the case here?

Luke 17:10
Likewise, when you have done all the things assigned to you, say: ‘We are good-for-nothing slaves. What we have done is what we ought to have done.

When will we get an proper site administrator around here? You know, one that acts like one. A person not given to running around calling members silly little childish names? Letting Lexi go was a terrible mistake.

Shaker you want to know if the archbishop is in it for the money. Ask him. Duh! You praised him for his honesty, remember?

If you're not happy with the way the forum is run, there's always a simple solution readily at hand.

It was Lexi's decision to leave, what with her being all growed up with big girl pants on and no stabilisers on her bike now and whatnot.

No, I don't. Where did I say that I did?

The first person to make any reference to Welby's "well-paid job" was James Jah - you can tell that isn't me because that's a different set of letters.

So your question on how to find out if he's in it for the money was crap. Typical of you.

Is he in it for the money?  

If all that power and responsibility gets too much you can repair to one of two historic palaces where you and your family stay rent-free, ask your chauffeur to take you for a spin, or spend some of your £72,990 salary.

Should a contemplative mood descend upon you, you could go on retreat or write a book. But if you were feeling more mischievous, you could give an interview or deliver a speech that outrages everyone from the Pope to the Prime Minister (not to mention the editor of the Daily Mail).


I applaud his honesty and afterall the Bible is full of people struggling with their relationship with God and with their faith - so we have plenty of examples of the human condition.

It was a rhetorical question (look it up) in response to the actual crap which came - surprise surprise - from James Jah.

Yes Shaker, I already stated your question was crap. Rhetorical sounds so pretty, too pretty for you. Crap question is more suitable in this case.
