I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Some People Need To Understand Polemics


I began Ichabod as a polemical blog, for perhaps 20 people. I did not think most people had a capacity to understand or appreciate polemics, but I was wrong. The normal views for a day are about 2,000, but many times they are 5,000, even 6,000.

Polemical blogs are the equivalent of the pamphlet wars of the past. Polemic is a word based on the Greek word for war. When people engage in polemics, the positions are drawn out rather than hidden.

Many FB writers like to call me names, but they do not wish to debate ideas. They seem distressed when their own public words from FB are copied into this blog. How delicious it must be to say anything on a private FaceBook page, all  the fun gone when it appears - with names and links - on a blog.

If an error is made on a post, I can fix it. That has happened before. A few posts have been erased because they were not really doctrinal and the individual requested the favor. One person wanted $35 for her post, so I erased that one.

Opinions are not facts, but I believe there is more pain from the facts than from any of my opinions. Sometimes the information is from background sources - and comes in from all directions and sources.
