Since starting this blog, there have been dramatic changes in my life, a loss of people who I thought were friends (and the gaining of new ones), changing churches several times, a battle with cancer (my wife), and in the midst of that I managed to complete my B.Sc in Information Technology and am well on my way to completing a M.Sc..
It has been an interesting number of years, to say the least.
But I wanted to share this with you, from Frank Viola:
Rule of thumb: If you read something negative about another person, especially a fellow Christian, take it with a grain of salt. Tilt toward not believing it. Just as you would want others to do if it were you being smeared (Matthew 7:12).
If you’re concerned, go to the person directly to hear their response. There are always two sides to any story (as least). And unfortunately, some people desire to defame others, usually out of jealousy, so dishonesty abounds.
“He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him.”
