I’m a big fan of professional boxing. I’ve been one for most of my life. At my home in Las Vegas I have a huge video collection of all the great prize fights. One thing a fighter will say to his corner men when he’s had enough is “Cut off my gloves”.
It’s time for me to cut the gloves off so to speak…..at least as far as Theology Today is concerned.
There are some in my “corner” that don’t understand my decision…..but they aren’t the ones taking all the shots. Especially the low blows I’ve received over the past few weeks because of my stance regarding “anonymous” bloggers in blog-o-world or my attempts to convince some within “blog-o-world” to actually behave ethically and to at least act like Christians.
There are others in my corner (one in particular) that have personally witnessed the low blows I’ve encountered when the anonymous cowards are shown their own despicable behavior in the mirror…and rather then step in the ring with me they prefer to anonymously write the resort that houses my tennis academy or attempt to contact the Seminary I teach at clearly demonstrating for me and those around me what I’ve been saying all along…..that they are nothing but cowards hiding behind computer screens posing and pretending rather then defending and contending.
The low blows so to speak don’t really bother me all that much…..but they do bother those that love me (one in particular) and its really for this reason I’m cutting the gloves off so to speak. The tears in her eyes from all the “low blows” were too much for me to take….and clearly something she didn’t sign up for. She wasn’t part of the cost I counted when I started TT and had she been around then it would have been a mutual decision to even start it…..and it was my decision and mine alone to cut off the gloves…..
So what’s next?
I won’t be shutting TT down as that would give my opponents a victory they didn’t earn…..but outside of book reviews I’ve been asked to do and to inform you all of the latest Phil Naessens Show you won’t be seeing anything new here….at least not from me.
I really want to thank each and every one of you readers for your support these last couple of years…..it’s meant a LOT to me to have you here.
