We could expend a lot of energy with this mess – accusations, lack of trust, deceptions, etc. But what good is it doing, for either side of the coin? It’s just driving people away from both sides. I know some of the more neutral people I’ve been in contact with over the last few days are irritated by both the Church of Christ and with us because of this. I know I’m tired of it.Let’s get back to discussing doctrine.
If Johnny, Norm or James or even the copycat want to come here and discuss doctrine, I’m happy to have them. If either of us feel like we have something to say regarding Scripture and our interpretations of Scripture, let’s get to that. Let’s get our focus back.
Why did I change my blog around – lose the pictures and all? I know I was pretty irritated by the copycat site, and that made me realize that rather than being a welcoming place for the three men whose teachings we want to discuss, my blog was an irritant. It wasn’t very Christlike of me to try and irritate, and so I apologize for not being Christlike with it. I should have taken the high road, but I didn’t. Hopefully, I’ll better represent Christ in future posts.
I know the copycat will probably come back with a mocking post that I’ve shown my true colours, or I’ve given in, or something. But, that’s not the case. I started this blog to discuss Church of Christ doctrine, and in my desire to triumph, I let my flesh get in the way. It wasn’t right, but it happened.
Sola Dei Gloria,

Thanks to Ted Szukalski for his excellent work, which perfectly illustrated how I felt when I made this post.
