My CF alerts now tell me there are over 320 blogs I have not read. Well I just read one, and it stimulated me to write this one entitled "So Who is to Say Who is Right or Wrong?" Someone writes about "the five solas". They talk about Catholics, they talk about Protestants, and say they are both wrong. They then go on to talk about what THEY think is right. They mention the need of "immersion" for salvation, and I think THEY are wrong. So now we have Catholics that are wrong; Protestants that are wrong; and the blogger that is wrong. The blogger says the first two are wrong, and I agree, and I say the blogger is wrong on immersion. So who is to say who is right or wrong? I am. You are. We will all give an account to God, and He will ultimately reveal who has been right or wrong, and most likely most have been both at times.
But if we have been wrong, that can be very costly for us, even cost us a happy eternity. So God expects us to do our own research, make our own decisions, and then be judged accordingly.
So here we are on CF reading all these blogs, and then reading all those responses to the blogs, some we agree with, some we don't, some we don't know (because of our own ignorance) whether they are right or wrong. All these blogs are helpful, if you are looking to find out what other people believe; but all these blogs are confusing, if you are looking for accurate knowledge and truth. All these blogs could even be considered "dangerous" if they are being read by the naive, the uninitiated in religious discussions, the theologically uneducated, the Biblically illiterate, and are thinking they are going to find nothing but good direction and good, accurate, spiritual teaching here. I see some grossly inaccurate statements being written here. Sometimes someone will write a response to point them out. Usually that just ends up in an argument rather than appreciation for better enlightenment. Some find it their calling to "defend/contend for the faith", Jude 3. Others want to "open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light," Acts 26:18. Still others want to "expound the way of God more perfectly." Acts 18:26. I don't have a problem with people doing any of these, and may they continue to "press on." In the reading of "all these blogs" on CF, I wonder if there should be some kind of warning, some kind of disclaimer, that everything that is written, is not necessarily good for the reader.
