It is easy to hide behind "anonymous" and say things to someone that you would never say to them face to face. I think the internet for some that use it that way has become a "weight" that so easily besets them. They are murdering each other with their own words, of which you will be judged with before God no matter if you used anonymous or not!
The internet is a blessing in some ways and a curse in others! It is hard to understand that so many want to actually read what I write. That also puts me in a place sometimes I don't want to be in. I don't want to 'blog to please' others or let this thing become something that I blog to make everyone happy - that would be being something I'm not and make me a hypocrite and just doing it for the acclaim of men. My motives are not as such, nor have they ever been - it does rub a lot of people the wrong way because they don't want to accept the differences of opinion and still love each other. Could you be found full of longsuffering for others or do you just give them one chance and when they mess it up in your eyes you throw them to the curb? Thank God he doesn't do that to us!
What I said about birth control and bearing children has got turned so many ways that sometimes I want to delete every post on the subject lol. I'm not a quiverfull believer, in the way that the group uses it as pride (not all are of this mentality but I'm speaking of the specific sect that is). They think how many children you have determines how blessed you are in God and that isn't so. I know GODLY Brothers and Sisters that have NO children who do more for God than some with a 'quiverfull'. Since when did the number of children you have make you somehow better than others? I've been thrown into the same category with this group even though I'm not of that mentality. I can't help what others "think" of me and I tried to explain myself but I guess people want to see only what they want to see.
1 Peter 4:8
"And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins."
Just wanted to try and give a view into this, hopefully explain things about writing, blogs, emails, etc - to hopefully help you realize that just because you perceive something a certain way, you can't be sure because you did not hear the tone of voice or see the author face to face. Also, let's be careful that we aren't saying things we wouldn't say to someone's face in person - I've been called every curse word in the book seems like through this blog but as someone used to say in class "that comes with the territory". As Pastor has said this week, Beware when all men speak well of you! I have to say I don't have to worry about that lol. =0
