Dear Blogging Christians, Dare to be Different « Musings of a Hardlining Moderate.

Carson Clark suggests that in Christian blogging we do not have to follow the media trend (the spirit of the world). Here are his suggestions, with which I fully agree:

Dare to be different. Be accountable. Be intentional. Take ownership. Live your faith in thought, word, and deed.

  1. If it’ll be an overall detriment to the Body of Christ, don’t post it.
  2. If it’s devoid of respect and/or civility, don’t post it.
  3. If it reflects a lack of personal integrity, don’t post it.
  4. If it’s an irrational rant, don’t post it.
  5. If it’ll reinforce petty hostilities, don’t post it.
  6. If it supports simplistic categories, don’t post it.
  7. If it makes strong claims about things you don’t know enough about, don’t post it.
  8. If it’s a “defence of” something, don’t post it.
  9. If it’s a thought everyone is already thinking, don’t post it.
  10. If it’s all about getting hits, don’t post it.
