God is Love, in a chat room?

I was evaluating a chat product for a client the other night and ended up in a "Christian" chat room. The first things I noticed was a couple of Mormon gals were running the room dedicated to Doctrine! I couldn't help myself as I dove into their world.

I questioned their "Christianity" although they bristled at the challenge they quickly decided that I was just a "troll" looking for trouble and to love me anyway. Two hours later I was alone in the room save for a few other souls that were probably trying to hack my IP Address.

Then the lectures began ... Judge not, God is love, and all the common we just need to get along garbage that people "believe."

What happened to true doctrine? What happened to people who would defend their faith and stand up against the foes? I can't stand next to those who waffle on the truth! For the next hour, I answered questions with scripture verses and tried to at least give a glimpse of the truth of God's word.

After all was said and done there was one other person and my self in this chat room. He said "Sir, most of the people who come in here are not elect in any way. They have labeled themselves to be "christian" and have no idea of what they speak."

How many people are on their way happily to hell, thinking they have fire insurance?

Romans 10:14

How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
