An Editing Note

Recently, I have been overwhelmed with spam in my comments to the point that it is difficult to wade through the comments left in order to find the legitimate comments. I am working on finding ways around this. If I have not posted your comment it is not because I do not value your comment, but rather it is only because it is too time intensive to weed through all the bilge that has been coming my way in order to find the pearls from my friends.

If anybody knows how to filter all this spam, I’m all ears.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Kinist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture . Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

  1. Bret,

    I have run into the same problem with my blog. One thing that has helped considerably for me is to require all commentators to answer a simple question before their comment can be reviewed for posting. The question I ask is this: Jesus Christ is _____ of Heaven and earth. The answer is of course the “Lord.” My faithful bloggers give the correct answer and the spammers and profane blasphemers cannot bring themselves to answer it right, which has nearly eliminated the spam. More so, should unbelievers answer it right just to get their digs in, they will be held accountable by the Lord for their answer. It has worked well for me. God Bless

  2. Bret,

    Do you currently have any anti-spam plugins installed?

    WordPress blogs, which I’m more familiar with, have an anti-spam plugin, Akismet, which works like a charm. I’m sure b2evolution must have something akin to this.
