“I find it humorous that a pastor would be so unloving as to mock people who say something opposite to what he believes. I would be running far from you, buddy. Yep, just saw this and yep, not posting my name after I see what you and your followers do to people who suggest you may be wrong.”
I responded to this persons comment by saying it is quite “cowardly” to post such a comment and sign your name. Here was this person’s response.
“Hmm, insults mixed with blessings. And I'm not the classy one. Riiiight. Cowardess? No. Protecting myself and those I love from people I feel total unlove and disrespect from.”
Now to the seasoned blogger you can almost say who certain ones are that leave comments. This is no different from what a pastor will get now and again. Pastors get the plain white envelope on occasion with no return address label on them. I can usually tell it is going to be bad letter if it comes like that.
As badly as I would like to engage people like that and completely pummel them on an intellectual level I realize very quickly it would do no good. I am reminded of the quote by Mark Twain, “"Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference." Now I know this may not be the “Christlike” answer to this situation so….Proverbs 26:4(NIV) “Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will be like him yourself.”
If you are a blogger or pastor and reading this and can relate…the best advice I can give you is simply write that person off. It is one thing to have a name and maybe try and talk things out but if they are going to post something with no name…it is not worth your time. It is not worth your stress and it should not stop you in being who you are. These comments won’t stop me in being who I am because it is amazing how many people get blessed by these blogs. You probably have or will discover how blessed people will be by your writings/teachings as well if you simply remain yourself.
