Usually most of my comments are wonderful. In fact, sometimes they so brilliant that I hit myself on the forehead and say, “Woah! I wish I had written that!!!”
I love reading all the comments. I love the fellowship that I have here with so many sweet brothers and sisters in the Lord.
But I am going to establish some boundaries for the comment section, for a minority of the other comments that come in, that I always wonder if I should publish or not . . .
It came down to realizing that this is not an open forum for arguing; it is a blog. This is a place that I want to keep civil and supportive. This does not mean that you have to agree with me. I have no problem posting posts where people disagree, as long as they are respectful. So please feel free to be honest.
But from now on, I am not going to publish any comments that:
1.) Contain foul language, insults, or blatant disrespect (for me or others).
2.) Promote any false teaching. I also get nervous sometimes when people want to add a phone number for people to call them, or links to material that I don’t know too much about that might be a little off. It might be right on, but if I don’t know, I don’t want to take that chance here, of someone latching onto false teaching that I gave a platform to, here in the comments section.
3.) Seek to continue or begin a heated argument. If I give you your space to speak, and I respond to it, please don’t try to lure me into an aggressive argument. If you can keep it chill, then I will keep talking to you. But I am not going to go around in circles arguing with you here.
Anyways, those guidelines are common sense for about 90% of you. And I don’t think it is too much to ask. But if you are someone wondering why a comment of yours might not have gotten published, maybe this will give you something to consider.
