[quote=ICXCNIKA]Periodically I go into a particular Protestant chat room. When I leave I always go with this message, “Before you go to bed, read John 2:5. It will change your life.” It is my way of signing off.
Recently one of the monitors has been questioning why I do it. He wanted to know why I thought it would change lives. I told him I didn’t know why, but that I felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to sign off that way. (Interesting that Protestants can be moved by the Spirit, but they don’t like it when Catholics are).
The monitor told me that he thinks I have some kind of secret agenda in leaving with that particular verse.
Today, before I left, I signed off as usual and the monitor cleared the screen. He actually cleared the screen of a message saying that a scripture verse can change one’s life. I guess if it even smells Catholic, it must stink.
IT GETS BETTER (OR WORSE).
Tonight I went back to that chat room and was just chatting away with others. The same monitor was there. I shared an answer to prayer with them about something that happened to my dog today. In my account I mentioned that I asked for the intercession of St. Francis. Not only was the screen cleared, I was kicked out.
I didn’t say they had to pray to saints. All I did was share a prayer experience I had and I was booted. I think it is time to complain.
Here is the email I sent to the chat room adminstration:
To Whom It May Concern,
Twice I have been kicked out of the “My Guiding Light” chat room. I have been contacted by one member named “elgrecco” who has questioned the following sign off that I give when ever I leave the room: "Before you go to bed, read John 2:5. It will change your life."
Tonight, after sharing a story about an answered prayer the screen was cleared and I was immediately kicked out.
*According to the Chat Agreement “MyGuidingLight Christian chat wants to encourage an open exchange of Christian information and ideas. You may read a posting that conflicts with what you believe. Take what you find with a grain of salt. You can expect these chat rooms to include information and opinions from a variety of individuals with their own opinion or point of view and that does not necessarily meet the views of MyGuidingLight Christian chat.” I have never engaged in an argument with anyone over the faith nor have I disparaged anyone else’s personal beliefs. In fact, I have prayed with members of the chat room on several occassions. *
I am unsure why I have been kicked out and why my comments have been deleted. No one has complained about anything I have said.
God bless you.
