Watch out! There are troublemakers everywhere!

Watch out! There are troublemakers everywhere!

It’s true. There are troublemakers everywhere on the internet. So, watch out!

Here are a few you definitely want to watch out for:

Miguel at “God Directed Deviations” is asking about tiers and levels of authority among the church in his post “Of Hierarchy, Tiers, and Levels of Authority Within the Church.” That topic always causes trouble.

Dan at “Cerulean Sanctum” retells a scriptural story from a modern perspective in his post “When Right-Hearted Christians Defend Wrong-Headed Theology.” Modernizing stories like this always bring them close to home… which causes trouble.

On his blog, Brant adds a post to his feature “If Jesus Had a Blog.” The post is called “If Jesus Had a Blog: I Told that God Loves the World.” God’s love toward anyone but us causes trouble.

Kathleen at “Church in a Circle” caused trouble for some of her friends. She recounts the story in a post called “Help! I can’t go back to ‘normal’ church.” Now, that’s trouble. (I wonder how they spell “trouble” Down Under.)

See what I mean. Trouble everywhere.

Watch out for these kinds of people, or you may find the way you think about the church changing… and that can be real trouble.

    I tried to be an equal opportunity offender with my choice of church name in my story. Perhaps both Protestant theological divides will appreciate the little joke.

    Or not. ;-)

    Thanks for the warning, Alan. Personally, I think you top the list. ;)

    Alan,

    Why do I read the sites you mentioned? Maybe I’m in trouble?

    Or,taking the hint, “up the creek without a paddle (that spells trouble):)

    Dan,

    I thought your story was perfect and equal in it’s “troublemakingness”.

    Joshua,

    Thanks… I think. :)

    Aussie John,

    No, you’re not in trouble. You’re definitely one of the troublemakers.

    Bahahaha, me? A trouble maker? I suggest you look closer to home, Alan.

    Australians spell “trouble” the same way you do. I guess it’s one of those multi-lingual words. Personally, I spell trouble like this; A.L.A.N.

    And AussieJohn isn’t IN trouble – like ALan, I have no doubt he’s one of us.

    ;-)

    Kathleen,

    Since you add u’s to some words like neighbor, I thought you might remove the ‘u’ from trouble…
