THIS LIFE IS NOT IMORTANT, RELAX, JESUS IS IN CONTROL !!!
There seems to be an unfortunate change on this site in recent months, but perhaps this is a natural evolution of things. The number of hits on each of the blogs has dropped dramatically which means that either fewer people are looking at them or that the content is of little interest to them. This is theoretically a Christian site and one would think that the emphasis should be on Christian interests, however we see many somewhat strange blogs that have nothing to do with Christian thought. In fact, we have seen advertisements for tee shirts and sex toys and suggestions on how to fix your computer or get a lower rate on your mortgage payment… If your interests are on these things, then go to a site that discusses these points.
Then, there are people that come on and blog many times one right after another, but strangely, their identification is missing. Also, there are remarkably few comments concerning any blog. It is as if people are afraid to voice their opinion and this is too bad because many blogs speak wonderful things and comments give the author assurance and a feeling that he or she is helping. Although it is not specifically stated, we come here to help each other understand the will of God as it applies to our lives. We do this by either communicating a personal experience or explaining various statements made to us from within the Bible. We are here to help each other, but it seems that some use the site to pontificate their own opinions concerning their interpretation of certain biblical events or doctrine. In these cases, it is interesting that these types of babbling is generally completely out of alignment with Christian doctrine, but totally in alignment with the agenda of the author.
There are two realities that we must accept and this is where a site such as this can be extremely helpful. One is that we all need help, and the other is that, in fact, few people read and study the Bible very often. But, if the site is losing members at this time, it is almost totally understandable. The world is so messed up and the depression factor is so high, people are spending more time thinking about how they are going to pay their bills and have less interest in reading someone else’s’ problems. But, this is exactly the time to come to a site that discusses Christian values because it is Jesus that is our only hope. We should not allow the problems of this life to interfere with our more important life and our relationship with Jesus. This is easier said than done because we are being badgered constantly by the problems of this world and how they affect our lives.
There are many good people that come to this site and some are very understanding about biblical doctrine. This is the time to ask these fellow members where to find the peace that knowing and understanding the Bible will give to us all. It is our only hope…
