Changes coming on World and Church Trends and Bible Prophecy Blog

There are going to be changes coming on this World and Church Trends and Bible Prophecy Blog.

You might wonder why someone would even start a Christian blog that would allows anyone in the world to make comments? I like writing the articles but the criticism that often comes from Christians with liberal or aberrant views is a pain in the butt and often seems to be a planned disruption or a diversion from the person making the comment.

The facts are that only a small segment of Christians even take Bible prophecy as literal future events on the earth. And there is a segment of Christians that prowl the Internet looking for blogs in order to change every topic to be an argument for their own theology, if you allow them. Of course, the non Christians also want to put in their two cents but why would they have anything to offer on Christian topics? Those who think that non Christians actually come to Christian blogs to find truth or salvation in Jesus Christ are pretty naive.

So today I am wondering why I should even allow comments from anyone out there that I will have to closely monitor. If I am going to allow comments at all it should only be from trusted people.

When I first started blogging I actually thought interaction would bring new information and another dimension to my Blogs but I am actually finding out that it really just wastes much of my time. I know if I were writing articles for my website rather than my Blog I would not be answering comments on them unless someone emailed me and I thought their question or comment merited the time I needed to spend to respond. But on my past Blog comments anyone could say anything at all to all the world and they did. What they said often made it necessary for me to make a response. Then more often than not they wish to turn my response to them into a endless debate on issues often totally unrelated to the post. I do not have the time for that unless one of those thousands of persons that know that Jesus will come back in one to three years is willing to depart from their earthly money that they know they will not need and send me that million bucks so I can hire a staff. :razz:

Therefore, I am going to change my commenting policy. As of right now people will have to register and log in to comment on this Blog. The registration and login links are on the bottom of the side bar under the title Meta. First you register with a user name and email address and then after that you get your password and you log in. Then you can comment but your first post will not be posted until I reviewed it. After that they will be posted instantly unless you get caught in a spam or bad behavior filter.

That will eliminate 90 percent of the garbage. The score or two of people that make useful comments and adding good information to the blog topics will still be able to do so if they register. Since most of these people are astute I will not normally have  to comment back to them unless they are asking me something or I see things quite differently from what they said.

I did not want to restrict people from making comments on this Blog but I see you must or else you will spend a lot of your time just doing moderation, or if you do not moderate the Blog topics will soon get off track and degenerate. If you ever read the comments on Fox News articles you will see it does not take long for loosely monitored comments to degenerates into endless arguments and mud slinging. I guess you cannot change the nature of the demented human race.

Believe it or not, less comments on this Blog will not hurt the rankings of My Blog or the visits to this Blog one iota. In fact, I suspect that a long comment section dilutes the key words and could make the topic rank worse in the search engine indexes. Some of my visitors come here directly because they put this Blog it in their “favorites” but the vast majority actually come to this Blog through key word searches on Google on specific words in my articles, like “Enoch Bible” or “Muslim Antichrist”. That will continue no matter if I allow comments or not. So I really do not need comments to get more traffic to this Blog. What I really need to get more traffic is to write more good key worded articles but I cannot be writing articles if I am wasting my time on people who make comments on Blogs as their main mission in life.

While I am talking about the changes to my Blog. Your going to see far less links and long articles like the last post, because it is apparent that few people actually follow the links to read the articles. Most people these days do not have a long attention span. So what I post in the future will be more like my other recent posts.
