There are a number of links on our blogroll here at InFocus. From time to time I get negative feedback about the content at some of the sites we’ve linked to, so I wanted to take a moment here to clarify our approach to our blogroll.
If you check out the our purpose page, you’ll see that the first element of our purpose is “to develop the Australian blogosphere.” That’s why I’ve got links to some conservative Australian blogs up top.
I’m constantly encouraging pastors to blog. Of course I understand many pastors have neither the time nor the inclination to blog, but our pastors have much wisdom to share and that’s why our InFocus blogging team includes several pastors.
It is important for believers to realise that while discernment is important in all areas of life, it is crucial on the internet. While I’ve carefully selected a collection of links that I think will be of interest or benefit to our readers, I would not want anyone to get the impression that we give a blanket endorsement of everything that goes on at these sites.
I encourage our readers to be discerning in all their reading. If you’re not sure about something, I’d encourage you to get out your Bible, study it out, and ask your spiritual leaders for insights into the various Scriptures.
You can think of these sites as eating fish. Eat the meat. Spit out the bones.
If you checked out the our purpose page, you may have noticed our disclaimer there. I’ll highlight it here:
The fact that an article is published or a site is linked to by InFocus does not necessarily imply that the editor, the blogging team, the GMT leadership team, or any particular local church endorses every view or position presented or held by the author of that article or site. Discernment is essential in the blogosphere as in all areas of the Christian life.
Grace to you.
