I welcome comments on my blog.
Recently I looked at all my posts over the past 2 1/2 years since I started Crossroads. I decided to talk about and answer some of the ones that had the most comments (with the exception of the times I hosted the Christian Carnival).
My post of Oct. 10, 2005 was about sin in certain areas making those places a magnet for bad things happening,such as New Orleans or places where I live where big earthquakes have struck.
One commenter quoted Leviticus 18 where God said if we sin the land will spew you out., Another said if this is true, God's aim must be bad since the French Quarter (N.O.) was spared as well as the Castro gay district in S.F. during the Loma Prieta earthquake. Also, the earthquake in S. Cal didn't happen in Chatsworth where the porn is mostly made (the earthquake center was in nearby Northridge) and nothing bad has happened in West Hollywood, the gay city (it was formed especially to be a gay city). Actually, this commenter is right - God has given to West Hollywood the best restaurants in Los Angeles and actually some of the best in the world. Also, the big clubs you always hear about are there. And Paris Hilton frequents those clubs a lot since she lives nearby. What more could you want? Food, alcohol, drugs, dirty dancing...and....Paris Hilton to boot.
My post of Nov. 1, 2005 talked about the fine line between what is legal and what God considers ethical. In part 1 I talked about my own story. The Nov.1st post was part 2 and a continued discussion of the implications of my story. Commenters were mostly focused on the question, "It's legal for a Christian organization to pay low wages, but is it ethical from God's point of view?"
I received 15 comments (some were multiple comments from the same persons) on my Nov. 15, 2005 post. If you are interested in the fine points of recent Charismatic history, this might be fascinating reading for you. Actually the commenters were more instructive than my post....:)
The movie The End of the Spear used a gay actor to portray a Christian missionary killed by natives in Ecuador. There were 6 comments on that Jan. 21, 2006 post ranging from it was an abomination to do this to it was a good thing to do.
My post of March 24, 2006 was one that I was passionate about. But almost most of the commenters took exception with me and said the important thing was that Pentecostal and Charismatic people got together and that I should be happy about that. A few said they attended and it was a real blessing. Maybe I missed it on this one?
Getting back to the first century church organization structure was my topic on the April 14, 2006 post. Some commenters agreed with me and some had other things to say.
Evangelicals--Is This Your Future? garnered 7 comments. Some agreed with me on the emergents and some didn't.
Tomorrow I will end the topic of "posts with lots of comments"--with just ONE post. The comments saddened me because it is the only post I've written out of 583 where people attacked me personally. So, until tomorrow........
