- Because you have an opinion about something. Actually, his point is that critics don’t have opinions on anything other than Noble.
Please understand this…most people do not have the guts to share their core convictions about what they believe. That is one of the things that bothers me the most about the “Christian” watchdog sites, they never spend any time developing their own ideas–nope–all they do is spend all of their time attacking others.
Please don’t look around what’s posted on PP, especially this past week. We have NO thoughts of our own.
- Because people are insecure. This is why we keep our comments section closed, so that we can never hear or respond to arguments from people who might think we’re wrong.

I have seen people say things on websites and send things through fake e-mail addresses that they would never say to my face–ever. I once heard Rob Bell say, “The internet is a place for cowards,” and I have discovered that to be true.
This is why I steadfastly refuse to put my name on anything I write here.
Actually, after Noble’s confessing his temptation to respond violently against critics and his intriguing account of a staffer crossing the line against a critic of his, perhaps anonymous criticism is the safer course.
It is VERY easy to lob accusations and point out problems when you are sitting in your underwear in your mothers basement behind a computer screen.
And I thought dress codes didn’t matter. Anyway, we prefer pajamas.
- Because of a superiority complex. OK, he’s got us on that one. We think that Scripture is superior to pastors’ visions.
