"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself," --Justice Potter Stewart
It also reflects a blogger's lack of confidence in himself. A confident man is not afraid to have someone disagree with him.
I recently said something about Boaz that was harsh and got rebuked for it. I'm glad people on this blog feel free to rebuke me. Yes, it sometimes hurts to hear people disagree with you. But we must allow them to speak--for their conscience's sake as well as for our own good. The wounds of a friend are faithful after all.
You know, it's funny: the Ekklesia, in the classical sense, was a group of citizens who gathered to FREELY DISCUSS THE ISSUES OF THEIR DAY. How can we call ourselves an Ekklesia if we're afraid to do the same?
This censorship in the Messianic blogosphere needs to stop.
