That's not logical. Why not cut out the middle man and just assume you're God. There's as much evedince for one as there is for the other. What do you mean by pedigreed Christian? If you mean someone who was raised Christian and knows the Scriptures quite well, they're many of them in this forum. Does it knock yok off your feet to know that anyone could know as much as you do and disagree with you? See any pride in that position? You talked down to him. You were condescending. Whick you assume without proof. You're also porud of them and feel the need to advertise. More pride and egotism. I doubt most here think about your doctrine at all. Pure, Biblical Theology as defined by you that you assume without evidence. Everyone else wrong, but you're not prideful. Do you see anything vain or condescending in that statement. I'm not sure where the Bible says, "Go ye therfore and condescend". This type of arragonce is one of the many things that make people hostile to religion.
