  • You ask a good question. What comes to mind: many users here are either clueless about the scriptures or are ashamed to preach the Gospel. Mark 8:38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."

      To leave a side note: I've had various AB'ers tell me to stop quoting the Bible. Not saying any names, but the more they try to prevent me from answering how I choose to, the more I am going to thump the Bible. So actually I get encouraged when negative feedback is left, cause they can be assured I am going to address their comments.

      Don't bend because it is Satan who does not want you to.

      Some people are not clueless nor ashamed. This just might not be the best place to preach to the Jesus crowd.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Rick, exactly.

      Archie Bunker, cluelessness comes from a lack of reasoning (as seen on many religious answers), while ashamedness comes from idling. Matthew 20:6 "And about the eleventh hour He went out and found others standing. And He said to them, Why do you stand here idle all day?" I see what you mean how Answerbag might not be the best place to preach, but precisely, Answerbag has a religious category for all religious members to participate in. If many AB'ers do not like it when others preach, then they should stay away from the religious category. Answerbag doesn't get any fairer.
  • Because there are 321 MILLION users on twitter - DUH!! If you need instant recognition go there.
    • Rick Myres
      I will post them here too. Jesus said if we keep silent even the rocks will cry out.

      No, He didn't. And there are examples in The Bible where he very intentionally kept his mouth shut. The example in Luke was not about proselytizing. And I never suggested you shouldn't praise God. I was answering your question as to why. And I still suggest that IF YOU ARE SEEKING INSTANT RECOGNITION AND RESPONSE in the wee hours of the morning when most of us are asleep go to a site with more than a small neighborhood of users. This is not a site with over 3 million users you don't know who don't know you.

      And some people wonder why people are leaving Answerbag.... People come here for discussions on a wide range of topics, not to be preached at by folks who think it's their duty to spread the Gospel to those who aren't interested.
    • Rick Myres
      Luke 19:40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
  • There are a lot more people on Twitter spending a lot more time looking at it. AB is mostly tumbleweeds and crickets chirping.
