And the reason for all of that is this—after our concurrent 3-ish years of blogging, we have come to realize that blogging cannot be serious business. Investing a lot of time in posts which say things like God's provision is usually exactly what we need, or that the sufficiency of God's word far exceeds any experience we could hope to encounter, or that we often discount what God has already done never seems to work out for us. People don't remember them. They're not what people come here to see.
And that, frankly, is a shame.
So no sense in wrecking the rest of our week with prayer, reflection and the real meat of God's word. This is what the people want—verbal meat-chubbery—and frankly, from what we understand, giving people what they really want is called missional these days.
These guys have simply given up. They lie to their readership when they say they are telling truth. They lie when they say this is innocent fun. They lie when they say the problem is with others' inability to look at themselves. Etc..
The truth is exactly as they wrote, they tried to do the right thing and they got beaten down. Now they are feeling sorry for themselves and are taking out their frustration in this ungodly manner. They are looking for their fan base to empathize with them and to cheer them back up.
I agree with them, it is a shame, but that does not mean it is ok to start sinning.
They need is to turn to God, repent, ask forgiveness, and get back to the business of promoting truth. I hope they find the way but first they will need to reject their pride. We'll see if they allow God to be big enough for them.
