Henry Karlson has a very good post on some of the same issues I am wrestling with regarding the blogosphere-ium. The Bully Pulpit.
The internet, therefore, has become a bully pulpit. It is not the first bully pulpit nor will it be the last. During the Reformation, the Church ignored the bully pulpit of its day, the pamphleteers, allowing a voice to be had which was not met with a sufficient answer in return. When the Church recognized the problem it had before them, it was too late, the damage was done, and the hostile forces had carved out a significant portion of Christendom from the Church, using all that was negative and in need of reform to justify theological views which were and are unworthy of the Christian. - Henry KarlsonSelf-criticism and review- it's a good thing.
BTW: This blog will come to an end sometime in 2012 as foretold by the Mayan calendar. Although that could be mitigated...
