mostly anonymous

I am mostly anonymous.  I have plenty of friends, family members and acquaintances... but in a world this big, I'm mostly anonymous.  More than 98% of the world has no idea who I am, and close to the same amount never will.  It's just how it is.  This morning as I did my morning Facebook browsing, I saw a couple of posts regarding a recent situation at UNC with an a capella group.  Here is the link, and following are my thoughts.

This is how my anonymity and the blog post relate:

I'm glad I'm not JD Greear.

JD is speaking biblical truths here, yet so many people are coming down on him for this post.  I will go ahead and say with risk of offending people (friends, even)-- I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING HE SAID.  I could go on and say why I agree and etc., but I would mostly just be reiterating everything that has already been conveyed in his post. 

Maybe a point I would add is that yes, I sin too.  Take gossip for example.  I do it.  A lot of us do it....but do I choose to make my lifestyle a lifestyle of gossip?  No.  I don't.  I actually feel bad about it when I realize I'm doing it, and make it a point to stop.  That is the difference, here.  Living in sin, and living with sin.

It takes a strong person to stand up like this for what they believe for who they believe in.  JD has a lot of people posting on Facebook about how what he said is wrong, not biblical, etc... and seeing posts as such about ME would really break me down....and I'm glad I'm not JD.  I'm glad to be mostly anonymous and only have my 899 Facebook friends and 76 Twitter followers to risk offending. --and I'm sorry if I have.  I love everyone in my life- no matter what your struggles/sins/whatever are, but I don't have to agree with you. 

This is my belief, my opinion, my choice to feel this way.  Props to JD for not backing down.
