I’ve decided to ban any and all contrary opinions to my absolute knowledge in all things biblical. That’s right boys and girls you can disagree with me all you like but your opinion means nothing because I’m right and you’re not….The only comments that will be allowed will be those that either praise me for my absolute knowledge……or praise others that praise me for my absolute knowledge…..
I’ve been wanting to say that for nearly two years now!!!!
Ok, let’s get serious for a minute ok?
Recently I’ve been receiving dozens of readers opinions in my inbox at Theology Today regarding my comment policy. Many of you are concerned that I’m allowing certain individuals to post comments on various threads….threads that have to do with these certain individuals beliefs…..one reader even questioned my integrity for allowing dissenting opinions…
Why wouldn’t I allow folks to make comments here at Theology Today? This is an interactive blog which means I want to hear your opinion on the various topics that are presented here. We aren’t presenting absolute truths here people….each of us that contribute to Theology Today fully expect to be questioned about our presentations and biblical opinions….in fact we welcome it!
Can I tell you something? I know for a FACT that more people have been reached with the Gospel through the comments section at Theology Today then the over 160 articles I’ve published in the last 21 month’s. One such person wrote me with the following;
When I read your blog I thought you were a blowhard. I shared my disagreement with your posting and was surprised you published my comment. When checking back I noticed some of your readers agreed with you provoking me to further investigate my beliefs . My research and study led me to believe I was wrong and repented of such foolish behavior. Had it not been for your readers I may still be in the environment I was in.
The above letter arrived 18 month’s ago during a time when I wasn’t sure if I was going to allow readers to comment….dissenting or otherwise. That email clearly demonstrated to me the importance of allowing dissenting comments and just how important those who comment here are to this site….different members of the Body (sometimes) reasoning together in a quest for the truth is a beautiful thing my friends.
Finally, 2009 will be an interesting year around here. Dorothy will be continuing here lengthy series on Hyper-Preterism, I will continue posting whatever pops in my head and I’ve added two more contributor’s to the blog….I’ll introduce them whenever they begin to post something.
Have a Great 2009 Everyone!
