I wanted to point out that this type of post could be an example of what someone might find "toxic". Short. Easily taken out of context. Intentionally uses inflammatory language.
I'm intentionally skipping past all of the theological discussion after this and just asserting that deep theological discussion is REALLY easy to go sideways on an open forum thread. Lost a few friends myself over such things.
Helping a novice with a biblical question...much easier.
Arguing known theological hot issues...much trickier.
These days if I find a discussion going in that type of direction, I try to take the discussion to a more private setting instead of setting an open forum on fire.
I was sad to hear that we went through turbulence a few months ago. (I guess I didn't notice since at that point I was still busy running down bugs in the open beta.) I'm encouraged that it looks like everyone wants us to remain both a game and a forum community that continues to focus on teamwork and collaboration and sharing truth and wisdom in love.
(Sometimes it takes practice to get that right. If I'm not sure...I try to just keep my mouth shut.)
