Hello! Thanks for dropping by today! I’m here today to talk a little about so-called “open” letters. While I don’t think I can improve upon either Jon Acuff’s Writing ‘Open Letters’, or Matt Cannon’s An Open Letter To Christians Who Write Open Letters, I do believe I have a unique perspective to share.
And my perspective is this:
Get a life!
Seriously. Unless you are following biblical protocols and addressing the party directly, shut-up! The best thing you can do is pray. The Holy Spirit is called our Teacher for good reason: He teaches us, leads us into all righteousness–convicts us of sin, righteousness, and judgment. Thus, unless you are willing to lovingly confront the (so-called) offending parties in person, keep it to yourself and pray. Airing your grievances on the Internet only serves to stir the nest, and further convince unbelievers of our contentiousness. In the Name of Jesus, please stop!
You are giving the bride a black eye.
And remember: open letters are so dumb. Really dumb. For real.
Thanks for reading!
