Questions to Ask Yourself Before Blogging or Commenting

This applies for bloggers and commentors alike and with the busybodies no longer just going from house to house but rather blog to blog, i.e. trolls; this list is in dire need of attention in the blogosphere!  I found it here.

1. How does my post glorify God and exalt Christ? Or am I seeking to only expand my daily readership by addressing controversial issues just for controversy's sake? (1 Cor. 10:31)

2. How does it equip the body of Christ biblically to be better Bereans on any issue they face? (Acts 17:11)

3. How does it convict and challenge me in my own life before I turn its truths on another? IOW, what do I need to learn, model, obey and repent of first before calling others to do the same? (Psalm 119:10-17)

4. How does it bring truth and foster change to the one I am disagreeing with? (Eph. 4:13-16)

5. How does it edify and encourage - not just exhort? (Eph. 4:1-3; 26-32)

6. How does it communicate real biblical resolve? (Roms. 12:1-2)

7. How does it enable others to live more like Jesus as salt and light in their communities, ready to serve their church and world? (Matt. 5-7)

8. Am I filled with the Holy Spirit as I write and unfold God's Word, or am I only giving knee-jerk reactions to what is the hot potato of the moment? (Eph. 5:17-21)

9. And lastly, in what I have just written and confronted caused me to focus more clearly on the person of our Lord Jesus Christ and something He would find pleasure, delight and honor in? (Heb. 12:1-3)

soooo true!
i have a reminder on the bottom of my blog for myself that i wrote which says " ask myself if what im about to say or do glorify God. If it doesnt glorify Him dont do it or say it"
most times i try to stick to it of course we all fail at times but we should definately try to remember this.

I saw this on someone's comment box and loved it:

Most polite comments are approved within 24 hrs. If your comment does not appear within 48 hours, consider the following:
1. Rude or inflammatory comments will not be allowed.
2. If you are known for gossiping online, you are not welcome to comment here (you know who you are).
3. My blog is not a debate blog. It is a place for women to be encouraged and have their thinking challenged. You can disagree, of course, but don't expect a long, drawn out debate - I don't have time for it. I'm a busy mom and so are most of my readers. If you find yourself disagreeing with practically everything here, perhaps you should considering reading without commenting until you decide if you want to stay.
4. Posters without a valid email address will not be approved.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Be advised I do not approve comments that have profanity, advertisements, or rude behavior.

If you find yourself disagreeing a lot with what I say, then maybe you should check your intentions for reading and remove me from your favorites.
