     Hi all, 

I see that Presidential hopefuls Howard Dean and Richard Gephardt are now 
(Saturday) ceasing with negative ads in the Iowa Caucus. Such ads are 
said to "turn off the undecided."

I see a possible parallel with us who have some beliefs that others find 
so offensive. Yes, we do need to be bold and confrontational, we just 
don't have to knock our opponents down at every possible occasion.

God, enable us to be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Why? For 
the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt 
to teach, patient. 2 Tim. 2:24.
