I'm no different (although I'm proud to say that in the 2+ years of watching videos on YouTube, not once have I used the proverbial "you suck" comment). But just this morning I received a gentle rebuke and immediate conviction that it is wrong for me to post things on this blog that I wouldn't be willing to say to someone's face. Most of my "ranting" posts have been about general frustrations that don't necessarily apply to one specific church or one specific person. But a few of my posts did criticize a specific person, and I regret that I did that. I'm rather bad at that "be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry" thing. I think I'm going to include a "be slow to blog about it" caveat as well.
Thus, I've edited a couple posts to remove material that was critical and judgmental of specific people. If I've missed something, please bring it to my attention. In the future, I'm going to refrain from using specific people as the fodder for my frustration. In other words, if I wouldn't say it to their face, then I'm not going to post it here. And I trust you'll hold me to that.
