Last year I stumbled across the following comment (and a few others) when seeing tha there were so many hits on my blog from an anti-large family website. I thought it was sad (that they are so lost), but funny about their assumptions of our family. I did choose to respond to this in the forum, and below is the response that I sent. I thought some of y'all would get a kick out of this, and would think to pray for whomever wrote this.
Comment: "Ah, how could I forget Lisa Metzger? She is such a fundie snob. Now she won't come out and admit it, but I just know she adopted her oldest daughter so she could have free help around the house!! I am sure poor Annalise would love to be rescued from her life as an indentured servant. If you can get through her Halloween post, good luck. I gave up about half way through it, but there are some gems deeper in." They had also remarked how my tag line at the time, "Conforming to the image of Jesus", was some kind of "inside connection" that I had to Jesus. They were mocking that line, claiming to be Believers, not knowing that it came directly from my life verse.
My Response: I won't try to defend my beliefs here, as I know that they'll be written off as being crazy or the like, but I do have to share this. I found this post when tracking hits to my blog and I told Annalise and my next eldest daughter, Kaitlyn, what was said here. Their reaction....they both laughed out loud and shrugged their shoulders (we're used to being criticized from people who don't know us...2 Timothy 3:12-16).
My question is this (rhetorical in nature, since I won't be back to view the responses, which I'm sure will ALL be critical)...why do y'all spend so much time visiting blogs that you don't agree with and then spend half the day criticizing them, if it won't change the outcome of anything that the blogger believes in? Seriously, from the outside looking in...it's so childish, really.
BTW...conforming to the image of Jesus is taken from 2 Corinthians 3:18 "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." Funny how some can take one part of the Bible as the "Gospel truth", but then others are too "radical" for their own way of living. Hmmm....
