I'm On A Roll!

Would you believe that there are some members here at Praize that don't like me? It's true!
We have Terms of Service (TOS) at Praize which is a list of rules for posting in forums.

These TOS are quite general. I believe that they used to be more specific when Praize was younger. I read them several times a month for two reasons: (1) to see if there are any changes and (2) to keep them fresh in my mind.

I do not go into Forums often, mainly because I don't have the time. In spite of what it looks like, I do have a life outside of Praize, and actually quite a busy one. Some days some members don't like what they see written in the forums. Understandable... some days some things are not very nice that are written in forums. And some members think that I should be reading all the forum posts and see that this or that person said this or that. Would that I could.

And sometimes members write to me complaining about what another member said to them, either in a forum post or in an email. They want me to correct that member. And this is where the crunch comes. I will examine both sides of the situation as best I can; however, what it usually comes down to is that the person writing to me first said something offensive to the other one - more often than not. But it really doesn't matter who said what. And my response is always: These things come into our life so that God can change us. Seek what He is wanting to change in you. - or words to that effect.

About 9-10 months ago I allowed myself to become involved in strife, and God dealt with me. The Bible lists strife among idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, murders, drunkenness, etc., in Galatians 5. Most people don't realize that. If you are going to cause or respond to strife you might as well get drunk or murder someone! The results are as serious. Kenneth Copeland says that if you have strife in your home you might as well have snakes in your bedroom! Since the Lord corrected me, I have refused to strive with others, no matter what they say to me. I also proclaimed a zero policy on strife among the operators. I said that if they have strife, they should work it out. I was criticized for this. I was considered "narrow-minded". All I can say is that this narrow strife-free mind is going to easily fit through the narrow gate.

Why am I writing this? Because it is a day in the life of a PraizeOP.
