Blessed by Blogging Disagreements

There have been several posts in the last week that several people have had disagreements with. I am really happy about that. The reason is not because I like disagreement but because people have been so kind. Usually when people on blogs or websites disagree there is this kind of slow-motion shouting match that takes place. It would be really awkward in real life but somehow people think it is alright online toward someone you don’t know or will never meet. Imagine disagreeing with someone in person where you shout something at them. They wait a few hours and shout something back. Slowly the shouting match unfolds. Online disagreements usually happen that way and I don’t ever read them and walk away feeling better about things.

So thanks to Dave, Hank, Nick and Theophilus who have been in dialog on several recent posts in the most respectful and caring way. Thank you for your desire to please God. Thank you for your respect for scripture. Thank you for caring enough to try to help me see the light! That means a lot to me. I hope I haven’t said anything in any of it that was taken in any way except with love and respect because that is what I try to do here. Thanks again for blessing me.

    The reason is undoubtedly because of the type of man you are. I know you weren’t fishing for compliments with this latest post, but its true. More than anyone I know, were you to consider me rude and/or arrogant…I would immediately seek to fix my attitude. You are perhaps the most humble and respectful brother we have. Keep it up.

    I, like you, am simply after the truth and your point about the accusation of the Pharisees directed directly to the dicsiples is a good and valid one. I am sure you will tell me if my response will hold up.

    your friendship is further proof of God’s love. Hopefully, God’s kingdom will fill up with souls like yours.

    Thanks bro.

  2. Matt, you mean we aren’t supposed to shout? I both blogged and preached today on maintaining self-control. In reality we fail to understand that maintaining self-control is within the realm of walking as Jesus walked. Just to put it plainly, “IT ISN’T COOL TO SHOUT!!”
