Apologies to those friends who occassionally leave a comment under the anonymous setting because your aren’t registered with blogger, but I feel its best to block Anonymous comments after the comments of the second last post.
Why? There is an interesting phenomenon in ministry whereby you get those anonymous letters and notes by those loving people who feel it their duty to tell you exactly what they think :o) I don’t generally pay much attention to them…after all if people can’t be bothered to sign their name, why should I be bothered to read their letters?
However, there is something bigger at stake here. My hope is that on this occassion ‘anonymous’ is not a personal aquaintance nor someone I have spiritual responsibility for. Nevertheless, although knowing the comments were made without grace or possibly with out knowledge of the situation, I think removing the anonymous feature may be helpful in creating less opportunities for those sort of ‘rebellious’ comments. Rebellion, in scripture, is likened to witchcraft and I wouldn’t like to think that I was giving opportunity for any individual to be further embedded in a rebellious, bitter stronghold of the enemy.
Anyway…sorry for the inconvenience to others…its easy to register at blogger if you want to comment in the future. :o)
