pearls, swine, dogs, blogs and the last word

Mathew 7:6 : Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

If there was ever a scripture to describe christian blogging...this is it!

i think it is interesting that Jesus mentioned the fact that the swine and dogs can destroy you.

when it comes to human wisdom...the theories of unredeemed creatures... they will and can rip Christians to shreds.

this is not admitting that they have all the facts and we are believing something non-defensible,

it is simply acknowledging the fact that unless God causes their hearts of stone to be softened

they will rely on godless intellect. you can make argument after argument and any good point you can make will be ignored. straw men... vague philosophies ...unproven theories... these are just some of the life preservers that are used by God haters.

they will take you round and round and as long as they ignore their conscience they can and will not be convinced

1 Corinthians 1:18 - For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God

i have been in debates with vegetarians, atheists, name it.

funny thing is a lot of them think they are Christians!!!!

you have to resist the temptations to always have the last word. you will not win, you will not

get an apology, BUT the thing has the potential to bear fruit regardless.

i heard Ray Comfort say one time about debating atheist in a prime time format that

it's not about winning a debate, it was all about proclaiming the Gospel and

the atheist fools don't even realize that the platform is being given toward evangelism!

that is awesome! i look at blogging the same way...

you go at it a bit on whatever subject you happen to be discussing, but just remember to

pull back...survey the situation, realize that this person is lost.... maybe not elect...

and proclaim the truths of man's lost condition.

maybe they will respond in private, or maybe someone reading the thread will be convicted.

but at some point we MUST realize that we are dealing with dogs and swine.
