Comments Policies

I no longer accept comments on new articles. This was not an easy decision. I have been richly challenged by many readers and I appreciate their thoughtfulness and, for the most part kindness. However the size of the site makes it impossible for me to rapidly and thoughtfully respond to comments in a timely way. Sometimes the thoughts are far from what I believe the Bible teaches that I cannot just let them hang out there without a proper response. So for now, I am closing comments on all new articles.

These comments below are left for archival purposes only.

The Preacher’s Study Blog encourages all constructive questions and comments. There are certain things that we do not allow.

  1. Comments which are primarily commercial in nature and which seek to sell a service or product are not allowed. Links to a personal website which serve to enhance the value of the comment are allowed.
  2. Comments which, in the sole opinion of Mr. Evans, are mean-spirited, hateful, derogatory or racist will be deleted.
  3. Comments which misrepresent the view or opinions of others will be deleted.
  4. Comments that include name-calling and personal attacks of any kind will be deleted.
  5. Controversial comments are welcomed provided some basis for their content is provided.

Any comments, not limited to those above, which are not conducive to a Christian atmosphere of scholarship and learning will be removed. Persons or groups which repeatedly violate the comments policy are subject to being barred from the website.
