I got wrapped up in a comment thread about Mark Driscoll’s statements at the Desiring God Conference. I have held a pretty laid back commenting philosophy, really only commenting when I agree with the writer. But I gues I have been a little antsy lately and when I read what some folks were saying I just couldn’t let it go I had to say something.
It’s so much easier to just fire off a quick comment when you don’t know the person and you don’t really care how they feel. I hope I didn’t offend anyone by my statements I was just trying to stick up for one of my preaching heroes. I guess as being someone who has been scrutinized for using strong (maybe offensive) metaphors, that I tend to stand up for folks who do that. I don’t go around trying to offend people, but if it’s on my heart to say it and I feel like it’s God urging me, then I will willingly offend people so that I don’t offend God.
What seems to be happening is that people in bloggerdom are scrutinzing every little detail about what prominent people say and do, and while that’s great because it keeps people accountable, it’s also pretty terrible because some guy who live in his parents basement, has an overwhelming amount of influence that maybe he shouldn’t really possess. It’s pretty dangerous. And it’s destructive.
So here I am today, writing before you all, that I will no longer comment in blatant disagreement with any individual, from here on out if I disagree, I will ignore. I covenant with you that I will not use this blog to slam other people. I will only use this blog to talk about my life, my struggles, and
why the political left is leading america down the crap hole . . . wait no, that’s not right. I hope to enter into conversation with people, but not fights, and if I offended anyone with my recent comments then I apologize.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
