How Should Christians Comment Online?

Jon Bloom on Desiring God:

Reading people’s comments online is an interesting and sometimes troubling study in human nature. And reading comments by professing Christians on Christian sites (as well as other sites) can be a discouraging study in applied theology.

The immediate, shoot-from-the-hip nature of comments on websites and social media is what can often make them minimally helpful or even destructive. Comments can easily be careless. That’s why we must heed Jesus’s warning: “on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak” (Matthew 12:36). This caution makes commenting serious business to God.

Tim Challies on Discernment Bloggers

Tim Challies wrote some passionate words about so–called discernment bloggers today. His conclusion:

But I will not read any more shocking exposes built on nothing more than one sides accusations and angry conjectures. I am not going to read about this persons finances and that persons leadership style. I am not going to allow people with so little integrity, with so little concern for truth and love, to violate my conscience, pollute my mind, and disrupt my love for others. And I'd encourage you to join me.

Well said. I'm in.
