Let me be the first to say congratulations on your departure from technorati. I consider myself a computer “guru” and I call that my profession. Even with my years of experience I have not fully grasped the intricacies of "the net". It gives me pause to think my children may soon be getting on MySpace or using instant messaging. Don’t get me wrong, used properly I think the net is a great medium for reaching out to people, connecting with friends, family, and even strangers, which can be a good thing and sometimes even bad. As Pastor Jeffery said last night when you test your salvation you have to ask yourself “Do you care about others?” I know that your heart was in the right place. You were trying to reach out to the lost, but if it takes away from that goal then it sounds more like it has become a hindrance rather than a help. We have been blogging with you since you started and we are sure the blog will continue to reach the lost. You yourself have said not to throw out the baby with the bath water. ; )
Anyway, I think that we can sum everything up with an “age old” Christian cliché. What Would Jesus Do? Why do I use that phrase? If you watched any of the Republican debate Mike Huckabee was asked one question in particular by Anderson Cooper and a You Tuber, “What would Jesus do? Would Jesus support the death penalty?’’ Huckabee quickly responded “Jesus was too smart to ever run for public office, that's what Jesus would do.’’ Similarly I have read on another site that “Jesus doesn't need to blog, he already wrote everything we need to know in His book.” I think the same holds true in this situation, Rob, and my family and I have got your back in whatever direction this journey takes us. (just don't pull out the kool-aid, especially when you have us all under one tent) It does not matter how much technorati authority we have but how much of His authority is evident in our lives.
