Started a Christian Blog

  1. There are probably two reasons why you are reading this:
    1. You don't like Christians and you want to go spam my blog. I rather you wouldn't. Not because I don't enjoy spam, but I'd rather you try and debate and talk with me. I'm not much into arguments though.
    2. You are a Christian and want to maybe go check out my blog and see what I have to say. Well, I've got a whole lot to say. The only problem right now is I have no one to say it to.

    That leads to me why I'm here. I would sincerely enjoy if you dropped by and checked out my blog. I've just started it, but I have a lot to blog about. I will usually update it daily. I mainly talk about what my views on things are and how things are effecting my life right now. If you want to know a little about me, my name is Alex, or Alexander(which ever you prefer). I am indeed a Christian, but more specifically I am a whole-hearted creationist. That means that I take the Bible for what it is. I try my best to elaborate on that throughout my blogs, but you'll just have to read and find out. I have a diverse group of friends who I sometimes talk about. My closest friends are practically opposites of me. One is an atheist and the other is bisexual. I'll tell you more about them on my blog.

    I try my best to throw out some interesting topics for you guys to read instead of me just blah blah blahing on. For instance, the blog post I just posted is over the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Go to my blog to learn more.

    The blog I need help with is alexanderrisner.wordpress.com.

  2. There are probably two reasons why you are reading this:
    1. You don't like Christians and you want to go spam my blog.

    I'm not a Christian but I have no inclination of visiting and spamming your blog. Moreover, I find your presumption that those of other faiths and those who choose not to adhere to a faith at all would only visit your blog with spamming in mind is a revelation of how low your self esteem really is, and is certainly not an indication of a person who is manifesting love.

    It's my life experience that Christians who suffer from low self esteem always huff and puff and threaten others with being tossed into hell fires by a loving god - go figure! Some have the temerity to follow up with John 3:16 - go figure! Some secretly believe that true believers ie. "the elect" were all chosen before the foundations of time - go figure! Another phenomena I have noticed is that these folks rarely ever emulate the behaviors and teachings of role model they profess to believe in.

    What did Jesus purportedly teach? Hmmmm ... let's see:

    (1) dana* = authentic generosity (charitable giving of the self and sharing of possessions, donation);

    (2) metta* = selfless love and good will toward all beings (loving kindness);

    (3) karuna* = compassion (respect, acceptance, forgiveness);

    (4) mudita* = altruistic joy filled with peace and contentment (appreciative joy at the success and good fortune of others);

    (5) sila* = self discipline -abstaining from physical and vocal actions that cause harm to oneself and others;

    (6) uppekka* = equanimity (an inclusive state of open mind free of attachment, aversion, bigotry, craving, ignorance and intolerance).

    * From Sanskrit.

    These universals are the essence of teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism, which predate the purported life and death of Jesus of Nazareth by Millennia and centuries respectively.

    The world is full of Christians and I'm sure you will find no shortage of others from the same belief system, who will be eager to visit your blog, commiserate with you and pander you with what you want to hear. You can find them here at wordpress.com by using the global tag pages http://en.wordpress.com/tag/christianity/

    P.S. There are 57 love one another commandments found in the New testament books that were selected in the 4th century for biblical inclusion. Among them followers of Jesus are commended to love their enemies as they love themselves. How are you doing so far on both scores?

  3. I welcome those who wish to discuss. I do not automatically assume that people who are not Christians will just spam, insult, or whatever else to me or my blog. I respect people who don't believe in what I believe for their faith is their faith and I will not deny them of that. In fact, as I said, one of my best friends is an atheist. Yet, everyday we still hangout and have fun as any regular teenager would. If we do talk about religion, we don't get into arguments and she respects my belief as I respect hers. I in no way am putting down anyone. My self-esteem, as far as I am aware, is not low. I love and respect everyone around me. As long as you respect me, I'll respect you.

    This post was not just for people who don't believe in God. This post was intended for anyone who wishes to read my blog.

    I try my very best to follow what Jesus told us so long ago. Christians are not perfect and are not intended to be perfect. The only difference between us and other people is we try. We try our best to follow God's commandments, but we will mess up and sin. It's who we are; it's who everyone is.

    So I feel that I'm doing pretty well on both scores. I love my enemies as much as I love myself. I feel a little disrespected by what you said, but I don't mind. I get put down by a lot of people. It's what happens to people who speak their mind. If you have any other questions, concerns, comments, etc., then please don't hesitate to speak on here or my blog.

    2nd statement > I welcome those who wish to discuss. I do not automatically assume that people who are not Christians will just spam, insult, or whatever else to me or my blog.

    It seems your ego has got in the way of taking responsibility for your 1st statement and the thinking that underlies it. That's too bad.

  5. Thank you for being the judge. I'm a new blogger so I don't always think before I blog. Lesson learned. Now just please stop judging me.

  6. No.

  7. Um...what's your problem TimeFreak?
    I'm going to check out your blog alex.
    :D

  8. @focnr the freaky little flocker

    Oh my, it does appear that you have a problem. I do know that it's hard to get the big picture when you have such a small screen but I'll be patient with you. Listen up kid.

    I described my problem very clearly. This is a blog promotion forum and alexanderrisner posted this thread issuing an insult and a "keep out" message, rather than an actual invitation to non-Christians.

    By issuing an invitation that reeks of prejudice (prior judgment) and then suggesting non-Christians he has already labeled spammers ought to enter debate with him on his blog alexanderrisner defeated his purpose.

    Taking him at his word ie. that his true purpose is to issue an actual invitation to non-Christians to debate and discuss creationism with him on his blog, it becomes clear that he needs all the help get can get to learn how to promote his blog effectively.

  9. @timetheif, I find a lot of your responses very disrespectful and talking down to other bloggers. We get it, your big, grade 'A' blogger telling everyone else how to be successful. But, do you need to be pretentious and mean also?

  10. I'm not mean.I just tell it like it is.

  11. Alex,
    Ok, I wouldn't have said it like timethief did, but I too was a
    bit disconcerted when I read this:

    "There are probably two reasons why you are reading this:
    1. You don't like Christians and you want to go spam my blog. I rather you wouldn't. Not because I don't enjoy spam, but I'd rather you try and debate and talk with me. I'm not much into arguments though.
    2. You are a Christian and want to maybe go check out my blog and see what I have to say. Well, I've got a whole lot to say. The only problem right now is I have no one to say it to. "

    It didn't sound very accepting to me at all and I found it
    rather dismissive of my faith. I believe in God and have Faith,
    but have my own view on the " established church". How can you
    *assume* that a) someone doesn't like Christians? and b) if
    they do that they must be spanners? or that I must be argumentitive?

    Just because I might not do things as you do, *doesn't* mean that
    I'm not open to listening, looking and learning.

    That would be my same view if I were Muslim, Buddist, or any
    other Faith. So in your second point, you make it sould like
    your blog *only* welcomes people who are " already inside the
    club" . I find that dissapointing.

    "Only two reasons why I was probably reading this?"

    well no.. actually there are many more.. I'm very interested in the world view, the bigger picture, and I hope to be accepting of all people who care to
    look objectively at different cultures, peoples, faiths and
    traditions and hopefully do it without judgement.

    I looked at your post hoping to find something that would welcome
    me, enlighten me, teach me and show how your faith contributes
    in a postitive way to the world we live in and the people in it.

    Sadly in this first instance I see only generalisation, critique,
    and assumption.

    On a brighter not: I AM delighted at you at least outlined what you are about and disn't just shout "go visit my blog" in a vague one-liner.

    I'd like to see you blogging, I only hope that you can find a slightly more gentle way to convey your message.

    kind regards.. kiwidutch :)
