Comments: Dan notes a number of ‘explosions’ on the Christian Blogosphere, of which Slice played a part in several, and then offered counsel on remembering that there ARE people out there on the other end of the text messages…
Folks, a name and a postage stamp-sized pic on the Web is not a person. You don’t know me and I really don’t know you, either. It’s easy to tear out someone’s heart on the Web through our pseudo-anonymity. It is far harder to tear out someone’s heart in person. But when we get right down to it, the Lord would not have us savage each other on the Web anymore than He would condone us savaging each other in person.
Can we all just take a deep breath and hold it for a few seconds? Can we count to ten before we post the latest flame bait or character assassination. I’m tired of the hunt for heretics. Cerulean Sanctum gets more combined hits from people looking for heretics than any other kind of Google search. That’s really sad.
Is this all we are about? I’ve blogged many times about this, but it’s getting stupid now and I’m questioning why we Christians even blog if this is all we can do.
