Blog Debates Problems

HT: Dr. Dave Doran

Dr. Doran wrote the following about blog debates that bothered him and me too:

1.  When arguments about ideas get treated as if they are attacks on a person;
2.  When a written text is defended or attacked by arguments that assume the ability to read the author’s mind;
3.  When the biblical texts offered in a post are basically ignored; and,
4.  When people publicly rebuke other people for not privately contacting someone who wrote a piece for public consideration.

I recently experienced almost all of these in an online blogging debate especially point 3.  I pray to God that we seek to learn from one another instead of just building straw men to attack.  1 Timothy 6:3-5 should be a section of Scripture that all disciples of Jesus hide in their hearts.
