Through my blog over the last two years, I have come to be blessed by many like minded women. I have been encouraged, challenged and guided in truth. Because of this my faith has grown and I feel closer and more settled as a follower of Jesus Christ. But as we acknowledge that the internet is packed to the brim with useful information, new ideas and like minded people...we must also acknowledge that there are people who choose to troll through this vast space with hateful, evil words who wish to hurt us and distract us from Christ.
I have often wondered why some people would choose to leave hate filled comments and emails for me to read. I have published some negative comments (provided that they are free of expletives and are not linked to vulgar sites) as I feel that in doing so it will encourage other believers to stand firm against atheists and other haters of God. Most of the negative comments I receive I do not publish, simply due to them having sexual references, being expletive filled and/or that they are linked to offensive sites. I initially (perhaps naively) figured that if someone strongly disagreed with what I write, that they would simply choose not to read here (far too simple huh?!) But now I have come to know that there are some people who, even though I will not publish their comments still repeatedly choose to verbally attack me.
There are also those 'ladies' who visit my blog through links provided in 'fundie bashing' websites. I find it pathetic that they feel the need to copy and paste posts that I have written and have a rant about it. It is actually funny that in doing so, they are bumping my sitemeter up quite a bit, so to those people....thank you I guess! I wonder about the fact, that my spelling mistakes are the highlight of what they write about...maybe the old adage of "small things amuse small minds" is true for them?
To those people who leave such comments or rant about me on other websites, please ask yourselves why you continue to read here and/or comment about me, if you "hate" me so much. If our faith/parenting/lifestyle/marriage/clothing is so offensive to you why do you repeatedly comment on it? ...When you leave me expletive filled messages and emails it only causes me to wonder why you are so angry at God? I know Satan is working through you, to try and distract me from following Christ; to cause me to anger and lose sight of Him. Your ignorant words will only encourage me to cling to Him more tightly. I will not hate you no matter what you write about me or my family. I will never cease to write Gods truth here, to encourage and challenge other Christians. I will not pray for your demise...only that you will in time, come to know Christ and will accept Him as your saviour.
