Post a New Blog

I have one name - but I'm about to start using anonymous names due to Crystal following me around.
I've only been on Cnet a few weeks.
I think it is dishonest to post under aliases.
If you go on Crystal's site she has 47 votes yet almost all her stuff is of no value and launched at a few people.
I think she is probably an adolescent or a cult member.
---Andrea on 8/24/07

And we all know that Crystal, the multiple variations of Mark, deputy and many, many others are all just one person who is really just a pawn of the enemy, the accuser of the brethren. Rarely do I see any of these names loving on Jesus, they only like to people bash and make accusations. This person rarely adds anything of value to a blog, they just stalk people. I personally think they are one very scorned and bitter woman. I pray that this person gets saved and comes to know the love of Christ.
---Anonymous on 8/24/07

Oh Andrea Marcia, you were here, too.

"I have so many nicknames on the internet that it isn't funny sometimes I get lost and will use a different name. No need to make a big fuss over something so immature as a name. Who cares if you are Bob one day and George the next. I don't. It is what is in the heart that counts. So get on with something that matters.
---andre9789 on 2/23/06"

Do you also use the name Jessica? Every month or so she has someone dying on her?
---Crystal on 8/23/07

Sure, I am trying to remember to attach 5754 the end of Carla I have forgotton on occasions b/cos I was critisised for not forgiving my husband that I was supposed to re-married and me not forgiving him? When we are both firstimers!
---Carla5754 on 5/4/06

No, Ken, Im not SLCguy either. I am who I am..
and Yes, I am a nurse!
---NurseRobert on 3/7/06

I only use Rebecca D. I have seen others use just Rebecca or Becky but I always put the D behind my name.
---Rebecca_D on 3/6/06

Ken, let me give you a clue. What location has the initials SLC?
---Ulrika on 3/6/06

Nurse Robert, are you the SLCGuy?
---Ken on 3/6/06

Thank you Donna ... Actually I think we are not far apart politically ... Things are a bit different over here, and we perhaps have more of a mixture of policies common to both parties. Our conservative party supports social programmes. Moral issues are more blurred than it appears in US. And I am no better Christian than anyone ... we are either Christian or not.
---alan8869_of_UK on 3/6/06

and NO, contrary to another blog, Im NOT Madison ;)
---NurseRobert on 3/5/06

I wish I COULD use more than one name here, because I am ashamed of some unkind things I've said to Alan (and others). If you read a blog inferring that Alan is "anti-American" and it has my name on it, please disregard it. Alan is not anti-American. I get emotional over my politics and failed to control my tongue. I disagree with Alan on a lot of political points. But He is NOT anti-American. And he's probably a better Christian than I am.
---Donna on 3/5/06

Hi Al, just thought I'd say hello. I couldn't remember what names you use on other days.
---NVBarbara on 3/5/06

al how many are there of you to
---willow on 3/5/06

Hey kids's! God bless from all of me!
---Al on 3/5/06

pupps, HAAAAAAA!
---daphn8897 on 3/2/06

I will be using alternate names on mondays and wednesdays. However I will be using a completely different name on the second tuesday of each alternate week. On Sunday, just call me Al.

I am using two names in the Blogs for my own safety. I am using the one I am signing in now more often because this does not have a corresponding CN penpal account. I am stationed in a Muslim area. At times our discussions regarding the Muslims gets off-hand.
---Linda6546 on 2/28/06

I sometimes get in such a "finger" hurry in trying to answer some of the blogs that I type in Eler instead of Elder.
So before anyone dives into an empty swimming pool it is not on purpose.
We need to focus on the content of the answers and then they will reveal the person.
---Elder on 2/28/06

Alan, we who know you love you because we and you love Christ.
Many times I have explained what you have said and you have explained what I have said.
That is because we;
1. have the mind of Christ knit together for His purpose,
2. know each other from time spent here.
Satan never attacks anything that is not a threat to his purpose.
We are known by those who accept and reject us.
Any who think Alan wants to micro-manage I will gladly send him my post for editing anytime.
---Elder on 2/28/06

Jeffrey, "Christianity is the only army that shoots its wounded." How true. I have lost count of the number of times I have wanted to say that on ChristiaNet. I'm glad you said it.
---emg on 2/28/06

Alan, I think part of the problem is that some people felt like you were trying to micro-manage the blogging. Many people are childish, yet hate to be treated like children. Your original subject basically said "It's not fair, so please stop". The premise was a bit juvenile. Keep this blogging in perspective. Foolish bloggers will always sound foolish no matter how many names they use.

Eph 5:2:
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Gal 6:10:
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all {men}, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Rom 12:10:
{Be} kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
---Jeffrey on 2/28/06

Glad you pointed that out, NVBarbara. So I guess the conclusion is that no one should use multiple personalities to attack Alan. :)

But perhaps I shouldn't joke about this. After all, it is pretty serious! Sometimes I think these forums prove the saying, "Christianity is the only army that shoots its wounded."

Here are some verses that might help those who think they can promote God's Word and His goodness by attacking and insulting people:
---Jeffrey on 2/28/06

Alan, As Believers we know that "satan is the accuser of the brethren". We appreciate you more than you know. Blessings. Irene
---Irene on 2/27/06

Post Your Online Prayer Requests

I hope its over as well Alan. I have a feeling MANY of the attacks against you were orchastrated by the same person using many names. If you click on 'Vernon', 'MM' and some others, the attacks on you are the only blogs that they have posted, it leads me to believe they are one and the same! God bless you brother. I pray that you know that as a group, we 'oldies' appreciate you!
---NVBarbara on 2/27/06

That is interesting Daphne. It does seem that the recent spate of attacks were against me rather than the views I had expressed. I hope it is over now.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/27/06

Alan, Yes, I know the Lord doesn't use His many names to deceive... was just trying to bring a smile to a blog that's become overly serious. Also, I did an experiment a while back - on a rather contentious blog, i used a different name... just to see what response I would get. When posting as myself - was attacked - but as my alias was treated respectfully.
---daphn8897 on 2/27/06

Thank you MP .. I do not know why so many personal; and untrue attacks have suddenly been made on me, and by so many people. For the record I have never supported gays rights, abortion or paedophiles, nor do I hate America, all of these accusations have been made recently.

Lupe2618, I know in the past that I have accused you of being long winded and I meant no harm by saying that, but there is a discussion on one of these blogs that I'm not really involved in but others are. The blog is "The book of Philip Discovered" by someone that calls themself the SLCGUY. You appear to be very knowledgeable on scripture and I believe that your needed here to refute the lies that there ia a missing book of Philip. I know that there are only 66 books in the Bible. God Bless!
---Believer on 2/26/06

Alan I have just read your response to M.A. I hadn't connected the recent hostility to you with this question you asked but you might be correct. There have certainly been some very hostile comments thrown your way in the last few days and none of them deserved as far as I can see.
---M.P. on 2/25/06

Tom, that is exactly the point. If everybody in the whole world agreed with something, that would NOT make it more likely to be correct!

Ulrika is right when she says, "Backing up what you say with scripture is what makes it believable and gives it credibility."

If what you say agrees with the Word of God, it is correct even if nobody believes it! And if what you say disagrees with the Word of God, it is incorrect even if everybody believes it! :)
---Jeffrey on 2/25/06

2. If a person is a true Christian and he does it sinful, he knows in his heart that he has sinned and if he puts it aside he will continue to sin until one day it becomes a habit that will continue to add to his walk with Christ. No one knows the intend of the heart but God. Each one has a battle going on inside of themselves. We have to be careful why we do things.

I have signed on in two different ways, with my first name and with my mail name Wenda7494 simply because I was confused as it says your first name and then later #6 says to use ChristiaNet penpal use name as your name. I would prefer to have my first name as I haven't seen anyone else by Wendi.
---wendi on 2/25/06

MA ... I have never suspected you ... but you would have no need to emphaise the support for your views, for they are quite reasonable. Those two who were named had rather extreme views, and it is such as those who may adopt this tactic. I must say I am surprised at the sudden hostility towards me on many blogs since I asked this question.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/25/06

Alan, I have never used another name. I know I will get bombarded many times. I ask for forgiveness when I feel the conviction. I am with Ulrika in her answer that the Truth is what has effect on others. We don't have to hide but if someone does, it is his own conscience that it effects. They have to search in thier hearts if they are deceiving others and if they are, it is their relationship with Christ that is effected. But if they do it for other reasons, then I would think it is ok.
---Lupe2618 on 2/25/06

Alan, in my family several people sign on this website. No-one has yet said that I and others could be one person but, because we share many ideas, are of similar age and had almost identical education (English language being very important when we were in school in U.K. between mid 40s to early 60s), I suspect that, to others, our postings could look very similar indeed. If you think my postings look like someone else's please let me know - it will be very interesting to see what you have observed.

WHO on this post are using aliases? Vernon, MM, you have not written on other blogs. Bill, and others with common names, just who are you? I think MANY are doing precisely what this question asks.
---NVBarbara on 2/25/06

Tom, There is not a limit of posts you can send, as far as I know. Puting different names on them is not going to make them more believable or creditable. Sometimes a few well worded, understandable statements does as much good, if not more than allot of words. Backing up what you say with scripture is what makes it believable and gives it credibiliy. The reader should be able to know what a poster's view is and why according to scripture. There are several other believers, who can post too.
---Ulrika on 2/24/06

Jeffrey no you miss the point. If we know what is the truth we need to put it as good a possible and that could use several blogs to make all the points. So it makes sense to have a differnt person doing each blog becsuse it looks as if ther are lots of people thinking that and so it is more likely to be correct. We need to use every tool to lead people to God.
---Tom on 2/24/06

Yes Daphne, God does use different names, but He does not do so to deceive, nor does He pretend to be various different people.

Darlene and Ulrika, I had not thought either of you was attacking me, so let us all be friends. I have to disagree on the question of attacking though. If I think what someone is saying is wrong, or not biblical, I will query, challenge, or attack it, but I will never attack the person. And I will defend that person's right to say it. I will also point out if I feel someone on "my side" has said something which is incorrect or gives a wrong impression.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/24/06

Hey, there is biblical precedent for using more than one name... God does. :o) He's Adoni, El Shaddai, Eloheim, Messaiah, Christ/Anointed One, Jesus, Holy Spirit, etc...
---daphn8897 on 2/24/06

Julia, lighten up girl! It will be OK. Some humor (Humour) is just what's needed in a tense situation. If I used two names I could be beside myself.
---John on 2/24/06

Darlene, I was not attacking Alan. He was not attacking me. I was just telling why I thought Alan stays in the middle on arguments. It is good, when people try to make sure people play nice and not personally insult. However if someone believes a certain way, they should know why. Someone who is trying to teach a person in error, that his doctine is wrong according to scripture, is not a bad guy. Christian's are suppose to correct false doctrine, not defend the person who says it.

Moderator - You are very correct Ulrika that the bloggers need to address the false doctrines with scripture and not defend or play to the person that makes the false doctrine statements; all in love of course.
---Ulrika on 2/24/06

We are to study to show ourselves approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth (2 Tim 2:15). Then we are to stand on that Word of God that we know, not by stubbornly thinking we know God's Word, but by restudying and restudying God's Word, searching the scriptures daily, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5).

If we believe because many others do, then we will be tossed and carried about by every wind of doctrine (Eph 4:14) and deceived.
---Jeffrey on 2/24/06

Tom, you missed the point. It's not about how many support God's Word. God's Word stands if NO ONE supports it!

We are to speak God's Word IN LOVE to people who WANT TO HEAR. We can do that best by using His Own words. Then we don't need our own guile. After all, it's God Who gives the increase!

1 Cor 3:6:
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

Eph 4:15
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, {even} Christ:

M.P. I don't know what made me think it ... just that at times a whole lot of answers come in at once all saying the same thing, but from different names. Then a break, and after a reply from another blogger, another flurry of blogs from the same group. Just seemed odd.
I'm not suggesting it is common.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/24/06

Bill, Vernon was not right, because he was rude. Rude is NEVER right. And, Ulrika, Alan's not trying to do the moderator's job, that's just who he is... a peacemaker. And, there's nothing wrong with that, especially in this context where so many are self righteous and sanctimonious.
---daphn8897 on 2/24/06

I can't believe this has turned into a mob mentality of "lets gang up and get Alan". What is going on here? You are doing exactly what you accuse him of. What happened with the right to express open opinions even if don't they agree with others. You want to take away from him what you say others should be able to express,differing opinions. 1John 3:19-21 The Bible says if our heart condemn not, God is greater.-we have confidence toward God. God doesn't condemn why should you?
---Darlene_1 on 2/24/06

"Alan you are talking a lot of arrogant rot, like most English." Brendan was that the observation of a Christian??? I don't think that such insults are the purpose of C.N. and I'm surprised it got through. Shari, multiple names is not remotely the same as multiple personalities. I'm certain that anyone signing in with several names is still giving their own honest opinion. They just wish to say it more than once I presume.

Alan, why do you sound so certain than many people have many names on C.N.? I can only think of 2 people where this has been discussed. One was Curt/Steve/James and the other was Molly/Pastors Wife/Deloe etc. You sound as if you have facts on this that the rest of us do not have. How is that? Or are you just guessing? There have been occasions when I have thought that Herb and Elder both sign in with other names, but these are pure guesses and I could be 100% wrong.
---M.P. on 2/24/06

Why are you attcking Ulrika again Alan, she does not do those things.
---Bill on 2/24/06

Jeffrey. I will only express God's opinion, so I express it when I want. Jesus used quite cunning ways to turn the pharisees questions back on them and we should adopt similar guile, and if using multiple identities helps to exaggerate support for God's opinion, we ought to do it. Paul said put on the WHOLE armour of God.
---Tom on 2/24/06

Ulrika ... There are those who try to win an battle by various methods ... spurious argument, personal attack, twisting what the other guy says, shouting loudest, etc. I think these methods may win a battle, or a blog, but lose a war.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/24/06

Ulrika, I've seen several forums here where views seem more important to some.

Tom, what's so important about "our case"? After all, aren't we all here to become more knowledgeable of God and His Word? Shouldn't we be finding out His opinion and lining ours up with His? (2 Cor 10:5) Seems to me, my opinion doesn't matter; only God's does! And His opinion can be stated best in His Own words.
---Jeffrey on 2/24/06

Hey friends, as I said in another blog, there are two melissa's, and the other one had made some real rude comments that I would never say. Alot of you know me because I have responded to alot of blogs in the last few months. So I decided to stop the confusion, and sign as "Lissa" instead.

It seems Alan tries to referee, stick up for those he sees why they believe a certain way, even if he does not believe that way himself. To me that is not helpful for either side of view. It can even add confussion. We want the truth from scripture to be told. If I an not sure how scripture teaches on a subject, I am learning to just stay out of the discussion. Alan does express what he believes. Sometimes he even goes to great lengths to prove his point.

I've changed my sign in name a few times. In my original name I said something that obviously upset someone and got a very unpleasant response. I was very new and it upset me so much I left for a while then came back with a new name. Shortly after that someone else starting signing in with 'my' name so I changed it again. At least twice I've accidentally signed in with that previous name (or initials) which has probably caused a bit of confusion as to who has actually said what.

My question to those who feel compelled to use a lot of different names is; What do you have to hide, are you so unsure of yourself you don't want to stand behind what you say, is what you say so hateful you hide, why would you hide behind a name,God knows who you are,are you antisocial,or do you just like to argue without taking responsibility for it?
