This is a crazy week for me in the blog world – wow – now 2 people want out of my life for good – on the basis of my stances on issues.
(1) Timothy (the prophet): “Jason, the Lord commands me to now turn away from you in person and in speech…yet not in spirit, for I am also commanded to pray for you. So I leave you, Jason, with this, because you have chosen your own way and refuse to listen to the Word of the Lord.” This was over the fact I like to celebrate Halloween.
(2) Burning Bush: “I cannot allow myself to be associated with calling perverse sin acceptable in God’s sight. This then is what you must do. You must remove the link to my blog from your blog. It is fine if you criticize me openly for making you do this (I will take all the blame for it), but you must remove the link to my blog.” This was over the fact I accept gay people as ‘they are’.
I have no hard feelings about it – but there is an aspect of religious bullying happening here. Both of these people do not want to be associated with my viewpoints – or the discussion of them in anymore depth – I can handle that. That being said, they are both leaving in such a manner that makes them think they are ‘right’ and I am ‘wrong’ – and I need to ‘repent’ of something.
Ever feel like you were being judged for something you ‘didn’t do’? Goes to show ‘what you believe is truth’ still might be more important ‘than what you do with truth’.
