What's a Blog? Why A Blog? Confused?

Many people today have access to the internet and the world-wide-web and that is why you are able to read this message that I have typed up from my home pc. There are different factors and themes throughout the web/internet some of them are very basic others are more advanced. A Blog is sort of an electronic posting, sort of like a journal. Some people might have pictures or drawings others might have just plain text. A Blog can be used to your advantage or your own disadvantage. Depending on how you post your materials and what you post. Since it is on the internet/web there are no real restrictions on what you can post. And that is what makes a Blog so powerful. "The pen is mightier then the sword" sort of thing.

So why would a church want to have a Blog? Well easily enough it’s because of the features that Blogs offer, such as you can have more then one user on a Blog. As apposed to a website you can only have one Webmaster and all the materials have to be sent through one account (at least for the most part). So our preacher can post his sermons exactly the way he wants to have them posted and when he wants to have them posted.

So what makes the Church of Christ at Asbury's Blog different then the rest of the Blogs? Well Blogs are as different as people and the more people that you have focusing on one topic allows for multiple view points, so everyone can get the best understanding possible. Not saying that we go against the bible in any way. But we have different backgrounds.

So you can expect if you click the little link on the upper right hand corner of the screen that says "Next Blog" you are pretty much going to the next person/idea/thought that is on Blogger.com. We have no control of what people post on their Blogs, but we can tell you what the bible says is right and wrong, and you can make up your own mind whether or not you want to believe it.

But just know this, if you were ever to be certain about something shouldn't it be your salvation or lack of salvation? There is more to life then what meets the eye. More then you can ever taste, touch, smell, feel, or even imagine.
