There has been an exciting turn of events for hardcore Christian trolls that may have visited this site. You may now take solace that Les Jenkins is most assuredly going to rot in hell. How do I know this you say? Well, apart from being all-knowing like Darryl, God has said so. I think. Or maybe it was the Restored Church of God, which is just like God said so. I think.
The Internet—and more specifically blogs—has enabled everyone to have a voice on any matter. Now everyone’s thoughts are “published” for all to see. Whether or not it is effective, as soon as something is posted the person has a larger voice. It often makes the blogger feel good or makes him feel as if his opinion counts—when it is mostly mindless blather!
Here is the definition of a blog from a highly popular blog provider: “A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world. Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules…blogs have…enabled millions of people to have a voice” (emphasis ours).
Ask yourself, “Do I have a tendency to want to have a voice?”
Well, we know Les certainly wants to have a voice. And that is most assuredly damning since we live in the 7th era of something or other, which of course is the last era before….before…. before Les goes to Hell.
Perhaps the largest problem with blogs is they cater to one’s vanity. Human beings are naturally self-centered and proud, and young people are certainly no exception! Note how the Bible describes this generation: “There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness. There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up” (Prov. 30:12-13).
If you post mundane details of your life, you are in effect saying that your life is important and that people should read about it. Also, whether or not you admit it, having a blog with your name, your picture and your opinions strokes the human ego—it lifts you up. It essentially advertises the self! Many teenagers say, “Listen to me, world, and what I have to say,” when they should be focused on changing and cleaning up their lives.
If you blog, are you sure you do not partially enjoy it because your carnal nature is inclined toward vanity?
Well, for shame on you Les. That story about the ink spot, it was all about Vanity. We know now. For shame, for shame.
In this time when people exhibit the least amount of character in history, there is more communication than ever before. Much of this is simply blathering on blogs—mindless words and idle communication. Blogs can be summed up as people talking about almost anything, but really nothing. There is no purpose to much of the contents—no direction.
Look at what the Bible says about idle words: “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matt. 12:36). Who would want to give account to God about how many hours a day he rambled on
I’ve read the posts here. Much blathering. Much. More evidence that Hell awaits for Les.
Now some of you may be feeling rather smug about your salvation, but not so fast there buckaroos. You too could be headed for hell:
Let me emphasize that no one—including adults—should have a blog or personal website (unless it is for legitimate business purposes).
When this policy, now being instituted, was discussed with Mr. Pack and other Headquarters ministers, there was not a shadow of doubt in anyone’s mind that blogs are something youth should not be doing in any way.
As has been said before, Jesus Christ and His Church have standards. Those who desire fewer standards should go to the splinters or to the world.
