The January-February issue of Relevant Magazine includes an interview with Rob Bell, pastor of Mars Hill in Michigan. Part of his response to the question of how he deals with criticism is:
"When the followers of Jesus can think of nothing better to do with their time than to pick apart and shred to pieces the work of other followers of Jesus who are trying to do something about the world, that's tragic . . . When a Christian can find nothing better to do with their time in the face of this much pain and heartbreak, you start realizing some Christians need to be saved. . . You have to be totally disconnected from the pain of the world to think that blogging is somehow a redemptive use of your time. I guess I have some strong thoughts on that." (emphasis mine).
Question: How can blogging be a redemptive use of your time? What are the unique temptations that blogging can present to Christians?
