Haters of Jesus
Confronted with the accusation that we as Christadelphians or Brothers in Christ, would be haters of Jesus and haters of God, made me to react. Though when I wanted to answer those many accusers on the different websites, I never got a real opportunity to show that what we believe and follow, is according to what is written in the Hoy Scriptures or Bible, which we consider the infallible Word of God.
On the many websites where many false writings are given about the Christadelphians and their believes, lots of writers do want their readers to belief that Brothers in Christ or Christadelphians do not love Jesus. As soon as a Brother reacts he is silenced.
To proof to them and to show all those who come along our sites that we sincerely love Jesus and try to do what he asked his followers to do. One of the main task he has given is the preaching of the Good News. In the contemporary times there are now other and better ways than going from door to door, like still some witnesses of Jehovah are doing regularly.
The internet fora are also a possibility to exchange ideas about that Good News and the coming Kingdom of God. Therefore, to show our love for Christ and to let others know how important that Nazarene well has been I wanted to present a website devoted to Jesus Christ, our Messiah.
To reach somebody on the internet we need a platform or system to bring our texts to a public. When you look for a system to blog the companies which offer such a service give the impression it is all easy.
When the word “blog” comes in the mouth the first idea people get to do that is getting to one of the most well-known platforms “Blogger.” With Microsoft Live Windows and MSM it was one of my first platform, which I still use and of which I am satisfied, though find the linking in texts not so practical as in WordPress, where the fill-inns can be remembered, so that they can easily be inserted in other texts. Backed by Google it’s trustworthy and reliable. It’s incredibly simple to start using Blogger as the site takes you step-by-step through creating your site. There are a lot of customization options and you can purchase templates through outside website as well. Blog.com, which offers a free start to blog giving the opportunity to choose from several themes is an other one liked by many.
Webs.com is by many called a great platform to use if you’re looking to create more of a professional environment for your readers. You can drag and drop elements around your site for the ultimate customized page. The site also featured an ecommerce feature — great if you’re trying to sell a product. But having it tried out for many years it did not bring enough readers to the site, and therefore was not successful nor useful, also because when a certain amount of viewers per month were reached and you did not pay extra the site was closed for a certain time. As such I got to many complaints of the site not being available because the kb ‘s where reached.
Enjoying very much WordPress but also wanting to have some other platforms, to perhaps reach also other viewers, I recently started a Wix.com site, which offered me some nice templates which it said should have been easy to be customized to keep the blog unique and different from everyone else’s. It also promised to have different apps to add to the site, but those did not seem to work as well was it impossible to add pictures in the blogtexts. C4U was created, but did not get me satisfied and got me very annoyed that after all the work of placing the links (in a difficult way) none of them seem to work. (As long as I keep the site running you can try it out yourself, and let me know.) > C4U Christ For You
Not so satisfied I looked for an other possibility and came up to a company which had very nice templates and presented something which was easier to put the texts in a blog or to create a new page. Mozello tells the public that they present the fastest and easiest website builder and the first site builder that runs on mobile devices. I invested lots of time writing pages and started also to write thee blog messages.
Disaster oh disaster, did I have a bad feeling last night, not able to catch my sleep, I found that all the work I had done was not available on the internet and that I could even not log in any-more. (Around 1.20 am I wrote to the company questioning them what had happened. It is now going to 1 pm and no reply entered my mailbox.)
In any case this was a lot of waste of time, having spend nearly a full day creating what I thought looked a very nice site. But now all is gone. “All For Christ” can not be found any more. Only a picture can be a silent witness.
To do all over again
Some other blog facilities did not seem to be able to bring something practical and most of all not so easy and useful as WordPress can deliver me. also some blogs offered only a very small amount of space for photos (maximum 500 MB and then you have to pay)this in the knowledge that a picture with my camera takes easely 3MB on WP.
But here I am, on WordPress, going to start all over again in the hope I shall not loose the material now and shall also be able to recover it in case WP would be stopping its services, which I do hope not. (This company at least offers also a service for importing and exporting.)
After some trials of other blogs I am now totally convinced that WordPress offers the best system to blog, and I also do have the impression it can reach more people than many other blogssystems.
Hopefully after the two big trials on the counter-parties of WordPress I know shall be able to get a better start. C4U, C4All, Christ for all, where all already taken (with different variants), so I took a new title, making it “Messiah for all”. I do hope you like it and many other viewers shall find to this site as well.
Hoping for the best,
