Greta, I love your blog and this is a great article. However, you left out one serious humdinger, and that's Luke 14:23 - "And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel [them] to come in, that my house may be filled." If you read the parable that's connected with this verse, you'll see that it clearly gives approval to force (i.e. "compel") people to enter the church once it becomes clear that they're not responding to mere preaching. Indeed, this is how the pre-Enlightenment church, including (Saint) Augustine and others, understood this (rather unambiguous) parable and verse for centuries...so I just wanted to share. Keep up the good work! Rob
