Before you comment, please go over these simple guidelines to decide whether your comment will be suitable for this blog. Simply ask yourself the questions listed below and decide for yourself. Thank you!
- Are you clear about the purpose of this blog?
- “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” — Jesus (Matthew 7:12)
Is what you want to say something that you would appreciate others saying to you?
- “Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.” (Romans 14:19)
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (2 Timothy 4:2)
Are you seeking to edify? Or, if you seek to rebuke or reprove, are you doing so with patience and a clear basis in Scripture? Will your comment tend toward making peace, or conflict?
- Is any part of it worded in a way that could be seen as rude, even if you don’t mean it that way?
- In short, does your comment pass the “Love Chapter Check”? See 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.
If your comment passes this simple filtering process, then please do share it! I would love to hear from you!
Bear in mind that I do filter comments, so if you think it passes, but aren’t quite sure that I will see it that way, too, I suggest you pray about it more. You might need to change your approach. Or maybe it really doesn’t need to be said at all. Because if I don’t think it passes the above test, I won’t let it through.
If you are simply concerned about some doctrinal issue, then it’s probably best to contact me privately using the form at the bottom of the page. As long as we can talk and study it out together with humble, teachable spirits, I’m sure we can resolve it!
Thank you for taking the time to go over these guidelines. As long as you abide by these simple principles, you are welcome to stay as long as you like. I hope to hear from you soon!
