As Tim Challies points out:
An article published by the Restored Church of God says that blogging is sinful. “Let me emphasize that NO ONE–including adults–should have a blog or personal website (unless it is for legitimate business purposes).”
If this is true, then may sin increase so that grace will abound all the more!
Update: Here is another surprising quotes from the article:
Stop and consider. The biggest mark you will ever make is to build God’s character and be born into the God Family. Blogging will not help you achieve this.
Finally, here is the first quote in greater context. It is part of his conclusion which is arguing that teens shouldn’t blog because most cannot do it for the right motives or for the right reasons:
Should teenagers and others in the Church express themselves to the world through blogs? Because of the obvious dangers; the clear biblical principles that apply; the fact that it gives one a voice; that it is almost always idle words; that teens often do not think before they do; that it is acting out of boredom; and it is filled with appearances of evil—blogging is simply not to be done in the Church. It should be clear that it is unnecessary and in fact dangerous on many levels.
Let me emphasize that no one—including adults—should have a blog or personal website (unless it is for legitimate business purposes).
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
