Thanks everyone for your kind responses. I just want to be clear that I am not affect by what others think or say about us. I am just amazed that people who call themselves Christians can be so devoid of Christian love.
I recently took my son to a VBS at another church. They had twice the amount of kids that we had when we did VBS. I was and still am genuinely happy for them. I thanked them for their time and dedication and have said only good things about them and their church.
Other churches are NOT our competition. I believe the more energy we spend on reach out together instead of back stabbing and blog bashing the greater testimony we can be to those who are far from God. Because whether we want to admit it or not the world is watching and to often we give them a reason to shake their heads and walk away.
I’m back in. I usually don’t get very political because I think it is very important yet very personal. I am neither a Republican or Democrat. I am a registered Independent. I have been ticked with both parties didn’t want to vote for McCain was pulling for Mitt Romney for the Republicans and for Hillary for the Dems.
I seriously was considering voting for mickey mouse, spider-man or maybe even myself. I am a strong believer that everyone should always vote. There has been much blood and sacrifice given so we can vote. I always vote.
If she is a true conservative I believe I have been swayed over to McCain’s camp. Ronald Reagan is looking down and smiling. Thank you Sarah Palin! Thank You.
I realize that this is quite the strong title but let me explain. Since I started blogging over a year ago one of the things that always has ticked me off is bloggers who rail against other people, athletes, ministers and ministries.
Many of these so called bloggers (I call them bla-bla’s) use the power of the internet to tear down others while watching their stats soar. In the past few days I have seen this with Todd Bently, Hillsongs and us at Mt. Zion.
Let me start with Todd Bently, I met Todd a few years ago and needless to say from the very start he was not my cup of tea, but you know what. That’s ok. I have read some very vicious things written about him in the past few weeks. Even though we vastly disagree on some very serious things. I still pray for him and his family
Next Hillsong. I can’t believe how harsh some people have been with Hillsong. It is almost like blog snipers are waiting in the hill country to snipe any chance they get. I don’t know anyone from Hillsong personally but have been profoundly touched by thier ministry. I do know Dave Wakerley through his blog and he is a class act. I trust Hillsong is doing and will do all they can in this situation, they have many world class leaders on their staff and speaking into their church. I bless them and pray for them.
Lastly us. We are about to have the grand opening of our children’s wing in a couple of weeks and have received some local press coverage. One site allows anonymous comments the other you have to register to leave a comment. The site that allows anonymous comments has many comments some cowardly and foolish others encouraging. I have never allowed what others think to shape or guide me. So that isn’t the issue. I am just annoyed that so many people who call themselves christians use the internet and their blog as a platform to push down others who try new ideas, to carelessly snipe at the character of other leaders and ministers just to feel the rush of lots of hits and a few loony comments by crazies who say they agree.
To all you bla-bla’s who call themselves christians STOP IT!
Took my son to his first baseball game. It was triple A but he didn’t care because the hotdog and skittles were stellar. For all who care the Syracuse Chiefs lost 1 to 7 to Rochester Red Wings. Great times!
Just a quick note to welcome everyone from over at my old blog location. Thanks for making the jump.
What we are going to discuss in the next few days.
1. Reflections of an Olympic junkie
2. Why I hate bloggers!
3. Update on what happened at our kids camp
4. My internal debate about kids bringing Bibles to church.
Got to go for now. Need to start doing some serious editing.
