Dear Anonymous

A couple of days ago I made a post about my church's current sermon series. After that post I got an anonymous comment that only include and address to another blogger's site. The post that it led me to was from a man who says he is a Christian. The post was on, and I may be wrong, how sometimes Christianity or actually humans interpretation of the Bible can lead to spousal abuse. Now, don't get me wrong, I know that lots of people have taken the Bible and used it to support their own evil actions, but that was not what I was talking about. I was merely commenting on our culture and how it is going to take MEN standing up for their sister's in Christ and protecting them from the evils of the world. When I said that Adam's first sin was passivity I was not saying he should have been controlling Eve's every move, but that He didn't stand up and protect her from the enemy. Which is sadly still occurring today. But really, both people should be submissive to Christ first and all things will flow from that.

I Love the "dear Anonymous". Why do people have to be anonymous anyway, what do they fear?

Ya know, I get real tired of seeing "anonymous" comments or statments, they serve no purpose to me at all.

The comments or statments that people leave that don't have the courage or conviction to at least leave some way to contact them, to me, should be discounted as irrelevant.

Anonymous to me, is not just the person who signs "anonymous", it is the person who signs some screen name that that is bogus, going to a website, that isn't real.

If that is the way you feel, fine, at least show yourself and let others make their own decisions about how relevant or irrelevant your comments are.

We didn't see Jesus hide behind anything... could you imagine... ok, here is something really relevant for the whole world, but I am going to just pass a note without signing it to the rabbi and I am sure everyone will follow me :)
