Why I Write This Blog

As I’ve said before, every once in a while, I think I should stop blogging.  There are a lot of people out there who do a lot of what I do.  But every once in a while, a comment like this one comes through the system: “Thank you for this blog. My spirit is so […]

    Melvin, do not be discouraged. Just do what you’re called to do. You never know how many eyes read your posts through sharing, etc. Fight the good fight even though it’s tempting to shut it down. I knooow! Keep on contending for the faith! Keep your eyes on The King!

    Pray tell, where is that in scripture? And why bother commenting when you haven’t the moral integrity to post your name? Well, as usual, a pew warmer has an opinion that has nothing to do with the BIBLE. You know … that dusty tome sitting in the trunk of your car. 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 states quite plainly that those who are IN the Body of Messiah judge those who are IN the Body of Messiah.

    Well, lawdhavemercy! I suppose, Anonymous, that Elijah should have kept his mouth shut when Ahab and Jezebel, the rulers of Israel at the time, led the nation astray in false worship (I Kings 17-22). I suppose that Jesus, in His mission to reconcile God with humanity and to fulfill the Law and the Prophets, shouldn’t have driven out the moneychangers from the Temple (John 2: 14-16). And I suppose that the apostle Paul was drunk when he wrote: “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (II Timothy 3: 1-5, NKJV). There are those who are teachers of the Word who teach it falsely and thus make Satan “as an angel of light” (II Corinthians 11:14). These must be exposed and condemned, not coddled.

    Anonymous, it isn’t about saying anything nice, but to listen to the words in the Epistle of Jude and to “contend for the faith” as is mentioned there. But then, I am surmising that you are a professed Christian who knows little of the Word and therefore little, if any, of its truth–or some humanist who “lives and let live”. Either way, you must not feel very sure of your position on this matter, as you have spoken anonymously. If you ARE a Christian, then know that you should speak on such matters with a “holy boldness” (Acts 14:3), for “the righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1, NKJV).

    Haven’t you learned anything at all in life that if you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all. Geez!
