Our Testimony in the Christian Blogosphere

I ran across a repost at Cerulean Sanctum this morning entitled 'Has The Christian Blogosphere Lost It's Collective Mind'? Dan wrote this post a year ago this month, but I feel, like he must, that it is still relevant today.

In our quest to be 'seen' as a strong Christian, sometimes we are over-bearing. Maybe one means well, but the unconscionableness with which some post comments
, it makes me wonder what the secular world is thinking. Are we becoming like the world, instead of being Christ-like in our posts?

Another thing that bothers me is the willingness of some to want 'unity' at any cost. I believe the unity spoken about in the Bible is not the unity that some are preaching today.

A Slice of Laodicea has a post today called 'Worship Blender Church Mixes Christianity With World Religions.' True Christianity cannot be mixed with religions of the world. You cannot blend different beliefs under one 'umbrella' and think you are in unity; it can't happen!

We must not lose heart because of the trend of the 'church' today, but continue to do what we can to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ, the only true Savior. Our testimony may be the only thing some see in this world. Many never pick up a Bible or dart in the door of a church, but we are before them every day. But, if we mar our testimony with the ways of the world, they will see no

"But, if we mar our testimony with the ways of the world, they will see no difference in us and the world"

difference in us and the world. And, with so many 'preaching' that all religions can 'blend' into unity, it is most important for us to stay strong in the Word of God, separated from the ways of the world, so that we may reach others for Christ and show them the one true way to salvation.

Dan,

I'm so happy you reposted it so I could bring it to the attention to others that may have not been to your blog. I knew I had remembered reading and commenting on that post last year.
