Etiquette for Comments

No, I'm not gonna give you all a lecture.  Not really...  Just wanted to say that there were 10,000+ visits in the first month of this blog.  And right now it's 300+ per day.  There's a lot of different folks visiting. I'm able to see that the major Messianic organizations are reviewing this blog regularly.

So....

...let's try to keep all of our comments constructive.  Everyone has been good about it so far.  As long as we avoid personal insults we'll be fine.  It's okay to attack a public figure who is preaching false doctrine.  If it's an elder in your community...well, that's different.

The debate has been good though.  I'm blessed by it.  I'm learning a lot from all of you and the process has been very rewarding.

Lastly, if anyone has any topics that they feel should be addressed in a post, feel free to use the Contact Me tab at the top.

Shalom,

Peter

  1. Colossians 4:6 HCSB Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.
    Ephesians 4:29-31 HCSB No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need, in order to give grace to those who hear. 30 And don't grieve God's Holy Spirit, who sealed you for the day of redemption. 31 All bitterness, anger and wrath, insult and slander must be removed from you, along with all wickedness.

    Thank you brother.

    1. Cajun,

      Excellent verses--they couldn't be more on point. By the way, just to be clear, this post wasn't directed at any individual. This is merely a reminder that there are a lot of outsiders observing our conversation--a lot of whom I've recently discovered sit in positions of authority in their respective Messianic spheres.

      And may I say Cajun that you've always set the bar very high in this regard. You continually speak encouragements and remind us all of the ultimate purpose of our dialogue--to bring honor to G-d in the way we prioritize matters. You've set a high bar in being deliberative with your speech.
