I have removed the language you object to from my answer.

I would prefer it if you removed your comment above, since it is wrong and somewhat accusatory.

comment Do Paul's and Jesus' use of epithets and culturally-harsh criticisms mandate/approve our own?
In the passage you refer to, Paul does not call Peter 'effectively a Gentile' - he says he lives like a Gentile. It's also very important to note that 'Gentile' is not an insult in this context - Paul has spent a lot of time arguing that Gentiles should not be looked down on.

"Hypocrite" "accursed" and "arrogant" may be negative words, but they are not 'cuss words' by any definition. Epithets are not always negative.

comment Jesus got angry in the temple - should we do that too?
@tunmise_fashipe Strictly the answer to your question is: No we can't emulate this. Because there is no longer a Jewish temple to cleanse. Maybe you should give a more specific example of what you are asking about?

I'm good with irony. And smileys.

@Mike How could putting things in your own church (i.e. where the offended people don't go) force the offended people into new churches? Your example was a case where the churches are already separate. And please don't accuse me of saying things that I clearly did not say.

@Wikis The question has been edited since I wrote that. It did originally ask if Jesus was justified. And the title still does. If the title is edited I will remove my comment.

comment Does Christianity claim that the Bible is God's only Word?
Revelation 22:18-19 is not a good source here. When Revelation was written the author had no idea that it would be incorporated into The Biible, still less that it would be the last book in it. It his highly unlikely that the author intended the passage to refer to all scripture - just to that particular book.

@Mike You understand my post entirely wrongly. I said none of those things, and meant none of them.

I don't believe there are Catholic/Orthodox Christians who are going round hanging icons in Protestant church halls. If they are doing it in their own churches, then that is 'in private'.
