If you will scroll down about a page, you will see Mima's own response to this from about a month back - he said that his friend IS a Christian.

And it really doesn't matter - we should give a good witness to believers and unbelivers alike. If we behave like spoiled little children, and someone looks at us and concludes "These are carnal people and the spirit of God is obviously not with them", what kind of witness is that?

No disrespect intended but is it really important what this person thinks? If this person is unsaved they will not understand what all of this is about and if they are saved they may be too judgemental. A dozen in one hand and half dozen in another.An unsaved does not have spiritual understanding and discernment so it is no way they will be able to truly understand why a christian feels a certain way about a topic and vice versa. Its ok for christians to disagree on some things.
---Robyn on 2/20/08

StrongAxe: agreed.

Yes, it's true that occasionally sarcasm and humor and hyperbole are necessary to make a point, but they should only be used when necessary. Unfortunately, some people are sarcastic and cynical and argumentative all the time. This reduces an intelligent discussion among adults into a screaming match among children, and nobody benefits.
---StrongAxe on 2/19/08

Mima, undoubtedly your friend thought we all are sweet and wonderful!

#1 StrongAxe: Accusing me of something?
My whole point was that if "bickering" (however you want to define it) leads to a better a idea about something, it's worth it.
I agree we should have reasoned discussions that focus on the issues at hand. But if you think using sarcasm, and making personal attacks is always wrong, I guess Moses, the prophets, and Jesus himself don't meet your standards.
It is difficult to strike the balance, but, it should be struck for the sake of all.
---j._nonymous on 2/15/08

#2 StrongAxe: My overall point is, there are times when, what you have described as childish, is neccessary. It's the concept of picking your battles wisely (which I don't always do). Some things we can let go and be cordial about, others are worth a heated argument. For instance, I wish more Germans "bickered" about killing Jews before 6 million died. I wish more Christians "bickered" about the prosperity movement and TV heretics so people would stop being led astray...
---j._nonymous on 2/15/08

#3 StrongAxe: We are intellecutally complacent and apathetic in our time. We recieve ideas as they are given from the pulpit or the blog and it seems we think our greatest response as Christians to these ideas is nicety or passive disagreement (even if these ideas had us drinking poisoned kool-aid on the tails of comets). If I am accused of childishness for argument, so be it. I wish more people were as "childish".
---j._nonymous on 2/15/08


It is possible (and desirable) to behave like adults, and have reasoned discussions that focus on the issues at hand, rather than like children, and focus on sarcasm, petty bickering, and personal attacks.

It is possible to disagree, but also to be mature about it.

I'm here because I'm attracted to this site like a duck on a June bug.
I'm taking a short break for the holiday, if y'all talk that smack behind my back, I'll know it. Don't use my name now, I'm coming back, Alan. You're going to miss me, when I'm gone... :-] Not. I'm a realist.
---Cindy on 2/14/08

Leon: What is the alternative to bickering? Do you suggest agreeing with eachother so as not to offend? Most Christians I know define bickering as anything confrontational. I know we don't like to admit this because it messes up our shiny Christian facades, but argument is a necessary component in a quest for truth. The alternative? Be quiet, look nice, and grow stupid. I'd rather be abrasive and smart, than nice and dumb. Although I do think we should be as balanced as possible...
---j._nonymous on 2/2/08

To---Leon-yes my friend is a Christian. In fact I was out witnessing with him last night.
My reason for asking him to look at this site was to get someone's judgment who I know very well thereby allowing me to judge myself.
---Mima on 1/16/08

I fully agree Strongaxe despite the naivete of Mima's question regarding CN blogs (a plethora of Christian & otherwise personal views). Christians bickering is definitely not Christ-like.

Is Mima's friend a Christian? Perhaps so though Mima didn't say. I wonder how Mima's friend sees the God-inspired Bible since it's also chock full of God allowed views of the saved & unsaved?
---Leon on 1/15/08


We are to shine our light before men. If the best light we can come up with is bickering and infighting, people will say "if this is what it means to be a Christian, I want no part of it".

(or, to quote Paul, "It is becuase of YOU that my name is blasphemed among the nations")
---StrongAxe on 1/15/08

Mima::Did You did pick the right Man to judge your actions? I guess you felt you ARE the Authority.Wonder what the Prez,thought.another Guess He did not even see it!!!
---Emcee on 1/14/08

Mima: Should anyone care what "This person thinks"? Who is he/she to assume a sanctimonous posture of judgment?

---StrongAxe on 1/9/08

This person thinks that there are many cults represented on these bolgs. Well, I said all blogs have that problem. Yes the person said, but not this blatantly obvious.
---mima on 1/7/08

Well, I have to be honest with you. I don't really care. Site has helped me in many, many, many, ways. God put me here. So I do not CARE.++ Judge me all you want to. Praise God.

Do you think God would mind if I used photos out of a crowd that I don't know? Different photos with different penpal names so I can date online?
I don't really want a date, but I enjoy other opinions from men and women. My marriage is abusive and sooo boring.

I was first introduced to these blogs by a friend who constantly lamented the constant bashing and infighting here. And, I regret to say, that was also my first impression of them. I hope your friend's first impression was better.
---StrongAxe on 1/5/08


While, at one level, we shouldn't be concerned with what others think, at another level it is important that we present a good witness.

Remember the horrible indictment "My name is blasphemed among the nations because of you!"
It is a sad thing for visitors (and for us) if we earn such an indictment because of pettiness, hypocrisy, ignorance, and other non-Christian behavior.

Alot of people ditch and feel great for about an hour. Then they realize there's nothing to do. TV and food. I myself have ditched and gotten so bored I did homework. Figure that out. He takes a sip out of a bottle of orange juice. You have to plan things out before you take the day off. Otherwise you get all nervous worrying about what to do and all you get is grief and the whole point is to take it easy, cut loose and enjoy.

How nice to see you, Donna. I remember when you were running off to Alaska. How was that trip?
Donna, by now I know the person guiding the ship. I'm surprised that no one has asked me to send them a private email, yet.

A person who has the Spirit of Truth abiding inside of Him will recognize truth and will know who is answering questions here truthfully and according to the infallable Word of God. Jesus said when the Holy Spirit comes, He will guide you into ALL truth. You will know them by their fruit. If what someone says doesn't line up with the word of God, they're in error and it's most likely their opinion they are giving here.
---Donna on 1/4/08

God will judge bloggers as He will judge everyone - He is the just Judge.
God will judge those that have rejected Jesus Christ. God also says that every idle word spoken will be judged. Fair and balanced.

I know that's too narrow of a gate for the open minded thinker. They wrestle with it, believing they do not have a choice in the matter. But that is not true, you do have a say so.

Bloggers are not judged by IQ's,
outward beauty, income, how much useless info we can remember, or how many church members we can attract, mimalee.

Bloggers are judged by the Righteous Judge.
---lovable_linda on 1/3/08

I am suprised in these blogs how credibility is a 'non-issue' to those making theological claims. Many offer some very outlandish claims, and then fail to 'back up' those claims when called to back up those claims, they insult and bail. To a thinking person, if a faIth cannot stand the test of FREE INQUIRY its finished. A rational person would see this and run.
---MikeM on 1/3/08

Your guest can read and see who stands out as being right. Paul said there were divisions so ones with sense could see which leaders were approved. The nonsensers make the right ones look good (o: "For there must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you." (1 Corinthians 11:19) So, I'd say if the person is not naive, that one won't be fooled by the nonsense people, but can tell who represents Jesus . . . in spite of how wrong people try to make things look.

Mike ... those people, and I am sure there are many, not just the one you seem to imagine, may need help, and think and hope that the Christians here might offer some.
And some do.
All you seem to offer is criticism of them, and accusations of multiple blogging.
---alan_of_UK on 1/3/08

Mi ma, with all of our personal issues and life's problems and what's going on in this world, who really cares about what this person thinks. I don't mean to be curt here, but if we cared about what people thought about our responses, we'd never grow up into all the knowledge of Jesus that God wants us to. Your question shocks me. Does anyone really care what someone else things of their responses? I don't. PRAY-everyone should be praying according to 1Chronicles 2:14. We are heading for perilous times.
---Donna on 1/3/08

Mima, there is no reason whatsoever for any of us to know one way or the other what another person would think of this site. It might be interesting if you told us what this person thought though, rather than have us all making wild guesses. Either he was pleased or displeased, nothing any of us can say will change an opinion already formed.

I am striving in this coming year to avoid the I hate my husband, I'm having an affair and I just can't help myself blogs.

So I ask that person, why in the world would anyone in their right mind want to visit your church? What could you possibly teach me about Jesus Christ, when behind closed doors - you are running around and carrying on like a modern day Jezebel?
---Mike on 1/3/08

I think CN is a great place to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I especially enjoy the biblical questions and Christ-like replies.
If you look at the number of responses to the I hate my husband/I'm full of lust and can't keep my eyes off of my husband's friends blogs, you will see disgust, and extreme boredom with the monotony of self promotion, adjulation and need for constant attention.
---Mike on 1/3/08

I have forwarded specific Christ-like replies to others.

As to the other, woe is me, my life is in a constant uproar mess. I cannot see that the person using these blogs as a form of treatment has been helped. Years have rolled by and they're not any better. 100's of 85 kind and gentle suggestions have not helped this person. Most of it is for attention and self serving for that IQ # that is ever changing and gets higher by the day.
