Maybe it has something to do with you using this website as a vessel to repeatedly push Christianity on folks who don't necessarily agree with it.
Personally, I don't feel the necessity to practice a specific religion to be a good person. My conscience does a good job keeping me in check, for the most part. To each, his own................but religions aren't very accepting of that concept, in turn becoming a vessel of dictation and control. Perhaps some people don't welcome dictation and control with open arms when it facilitates oppression.

how about option "E"...your horrible pun of a screen-name, pushing religion on a surf forum (or any forum, for that matter). religion is a private, personal matter. even if i shared the same beliefs as you, i'd find what you do offensive.
put the shoe on the other foot...how would you feel if a guy started posting on here asking for support for a muslim surf camp or a jewish one? or any other doctrine of faith?

Well, I guess in one aspect, we all have brought God to surfing. I mean, we all have been in the impact zone and just before that set wave broke on our heads, thought, "Oh god". LMAO!

For me Wayne, it's not that you proselytize, I could give 0Fs about any religion other than monkey animism. Those guys are after me. It's that I think you're a kook, plain and simple. You never post anything surf related, except bull about your surf school. "Hi we are seeking donations of time, money, supplies and surfboard to teach kids to surf." Great I have no more problem with that than I do with any other surf school, teaching kids to flop around in the white water is a noble pursuit. I'm sure it beats working for a living. Or you post stupid stuff like this, "What do you guys not like about my posts?" No the truth is based on what you put up here, I have a sneaking suspicion that you personally are not qualified to teach a dog to surf. Which is actually quite tricky; but I digress. Honestly, I bet that you're not a good enough surfer to teach people how to surf, so you cloak your surf school in the shroud of religion as a crutch. And, I have to say based on the scripture that you quote and your interactions with the other forum members here, it sometimes makes me think that maybe you shroud your religion in surfing for the same reason. As in maybe you don't have the ability to carry Christ's words to people on your own, so you have to use surfing as the vessel, which in fact distracts from the message. You know kind of like scaring little kids about Satan on Halloween. But hey, I'm an a$$hole; prove me wrong Wayne, let's see the best photo of you surfing. If it's steep, deep and critical; I'll even make a donation to your school.
Brother, have you heard about Bob the Giant Sh!1 Flinging Monkey G-d?

Wayne - I used to live across the street from Will Graham. The Will Graham, grandson of Billy Graham, heir apparent to the Graham ministries, maybe you've heard of him? He was a great neighbor and friend, and even though he knew I wasn't the most religious fellow out there not once did he ever try to convert me, preach to me, or otherwise badger me into accepting Jesus and going to Church. He was just a great neighbor and a friend. I have another neighbor who's a devout Christian, nicest guy in the world, give you the shirt off his back. He's never tried to convert me either. He walks the neighborhood every morning at 6am and always stops by our house and says a silent prayer. I appreciate that. He doesn't try to push his religion down my throat but still cares enough to say a prayer for us in his personal, silent way.
You know what the difference between them and you is? They try to lead people into Christianity by example. You are trying to push, drag, badger, threaten, and mislead people into accepting Jesus. They demonstrate by their actions they are good people and if anyone is willing, they will gladly welcome them as Christians. But they don't try to force it down everyone's throats by any method they can. Your end results do not justify your actions. And not once have I ever felt like either Will or my other neighbor looked down on me or judged me b\c I don't believe what they do. I've seen plenty of stuff from you that's makes it pretty clear that you judge and look down on others that don't share your beliefs.
If you truly are a Christian you need to rethink the what how and why of what you are doing. I don't find your actions very Christian at all.
Signed, a heathen...

One of the most insulting assumptions you make Wayne, is that if there is a kind loving honest person who is giving and compassionate, but this person lives in an isolated village, and has never heard the Gospel, that person is damned to hell for eternity. Fu9k that **** brah!
And quit preaching on a surf site. God bless you too, now shuffle off.
