The rise of the Internet and the blogosphere have created a wonderful new forum for discussion and research. But the same forum which can be used as a tool for good also provides an easy avenue for the rapid mass dissemination of gossip, revilings, and defamation against Christian men and ministries. The ease of publishing information through a blog and the lack of accountability for what is published has contributed to the relaxation of journalistic and academic standards (not to mention principles of brotherly charity) when critiquing others that often results in Ninth Commandment violations. Even legitimate criticism, however, must be subject to biblical, academic scrutiny. Those who use the Internet to discredit the name and work of others must be prepared to have their own critiques cross-examined.
The purpose of this section of our Web site is to do just this. With malice toward none and gratitude for the freedom the Lord provides and for a free society which fosters dialogue in the spirit of Christian charity, we pray that the light of God’s Word will reign paramount in every controversy between Christian men. It remains our vision that all Christians will embrace the spirit of the Bereans who, as Luke tells us, “were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).
