Writer's Block: Clash of the titans

When was the last time you had a serious conflict with someone on LiveJournal, and what was it about?

One of my primary purposes of writing on livejournal is to share truth.

With the truth, however, comes opposition. That’s par for the course.

I’ve learned along the way that it’s futile to fight back when criticized.

My goal is to speak the truth in love…not engage in conflict.

Whether you share the truth here or somewhere else, there are nerks everywhere who will oppose you. Let us keep our hands to the plough.

Nerk is a mild word for a fool, nitwit, etc. I got it from The Goon Show, which I do recommend. Clean enough for anyone's ears and jolly funny.

Yes, keep our hands to the plough and don't look back!
By the way, I heard about all the flooding in your area. Is your family safe and dry?

Yes, thank you, we are. I know people at our church, though, who were affected by it.

I'm not sure of the reference (I think it's in Jeremiah), but basically God called someone to prophesy, and said (my paraphrasing here) "You must speak the words I give you to them. If they listen, they will be saved. If they turn away, you will be saved, because you gave them the message, but they will not be saved because they turned away from Me." We are not responsible for other people's reaction, only for speaking His truth.
