A Blogosphere is not a Church
How can there really be a "Christian Blogging Community"? It doesn't make any sense.
I like Blogs4God--it's nice in giving us a list of others in such a classification (a semi definitive list, which is nice) and an interesting place to look around--butsome of these other little blips coming up that claimto be the next thing for "Christian Bloggers" and will really unite the community and set up real standards.
Well goody-gum drops but this isn't church. Christs mandate for unity was never interpreted as a mandate for a guild.
The whole idea of thisuniversial community is silly. I am in an online community with the people who read my site and the people whos site I read. The affiliation is purely one of readership and an invention of another association is unrealistic.
Even granting the impossibility of creating some sort of community where it does not exists, I have no reason to submit to anyones imposition of allegedly Christian standards. Even more than that, I'm not interested in using such a grid to decide if I will read someone's blog. How do I know if a blog is good? I read it.
No standardized test--even if I agreed with it, which is unlikely--is going to tell me if the writing is interesting.
Perhaps the whole idea is a joke nobody has gotten yet.
