The UnGenerous Web

As I prepare my post/essay, The Generous Web, I’m also realizing that there is a Newtonian Third Law reality to the web – what one might call the UnGenerous Web. This is the web of ad hominem attacks, misrepresentations and fabrications. it is the web of “I’m right and you’re wrong.” It is the web of bullies and bilious commentators.

Perhaps the saddest thing for me, as a person of faith, is that many charter members of the UnGenerous Web claim to be followers of Jesus. When we behave in this ungenerous manner, we are more effective at attempting to refute the truth of Christianity than a Dan Brown or a “Gospel of Judas” could ever be. God help us all.

One response to The UnGenerous Web

  1. I couldn’t agree more.

    I was involved in an online debate that escalated from a logical argument to a full on flame war. I departed from it but still check on it from time to time. It is definately a part of the UnGenerous Web. And the whole thing is on the topic of faith, belief, and christianity. Unbelievable.
