The Downside to Blogging 

One thing I have increasingly observed and noticed among people who comment or send me messages is that they perceive my blog to be my entire summed up thinking. In all reality, this site is like 1/10 (perhaps an even higher ratio, like 1/15) of my total summed up spiritual life. That is to say, my blog is simply a sounding board for whatever the subject is I happen to be thinking through at the moment. I could honestly care less if anyone reads it, it's just more of a public diary of thoughts. Yet this does not mean this is the only thing I'm thinking about concerning my life in Christ. I'm just writing on whatever the particular subject is I happen to find important. It seems some people perceive bloggers as sitting behind a keyboard, brows furroughed, gritting their teeth, sweating in angst. Many are, but I don't think I'm one of them. I'm supremely happy in Christ and joyful in the Lord and what He's accomplished for me. It's what drives the things I do. Do I struggle with anger, my own misery? Surely.

Some relativistic secularists seem to think that's just too negative though and we need to be more positive and uplifting. Tell that to Jesus when reading the Gospels and He's speaking parables. We talk all well and good about being like Jesus and yet ignore the fact that part of that is speaking into the world that it's views are just wrong. Jesus was a very serious person in His earthly ministry. It's not arrogant to say that something is wrong based on Scriptural evidence because it's true. Read More...
