I don’t know about you, but I truly get upset when people try to use my blog as their platform to “bash” my posts, other people’s beliefs, or the comments some leave me.
I normally just delete these types of comments and don’t give them another thought. Sometimes I reply to the sender to let them know I’ve deleted their comments and ask them to refrain from using my blog in that manner, but today I got a comment on a post from October 22nd, He Delights In Your Prosperity, a message from Joel Osteen, and I approved it because I felt a strong need to address their views. Everyone has a right to their opinion, however it is my belief that when you profess to be called by God to deliver His message, you must be held to a higher degree of accountability. I have always been told that you “don’t mess with God’s anointed”. There is a way to handle matters as delicate as “calling out” someone and I don’t believe using my blog is the way to do it. To me that’s just a cheap and cheesy way to get attention – and that’s all I believe this attempt was, a way to get attention. It’s funny that the comment was just made today, and the post is over 2 months old. What about all the Joel Osteen messages I’ve posted? Where were they then? Well, let me get off this soapbox, I don’t want to get rattled over something like this – it’s not worth the time and energy I’d expend. So in closing I will simply say this, if you feel the need to use my blog to bash someone, you will be summarily DELETED. If you are a repeat “offender” you will be marked as SPAM. Have a nice day!
