sassenach Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 Inspired by the Mars Hill thread, but not specific to it, at what point do you feel that a Christian who blogs, comments on blogs, passes along blogs, ect. is acting in sin? Is if fine if we're convinced that the person being criticized isn't a Christian? What if the person is probably a Christian, but not the "right type" (aka: kerfluffle)? At what point are we responsible for our personal sin in passing along unverifiable, and probably incorrect information? Or is it not a sin, because it's on the internet? Is internet gossip not the same as real gossip? Why not? These are all things that I have thought through over the years on this board and I would love to hear your thoughts. I am hopeful that we can keep in constructive. ETA: Is it different when a blog is about a public figure vs. a personal conflict? What about when people post WWYD questions here, but the question is about a situation that they are in no way involved in? Is that gossip?
