Pet Peeves: Context is Key. →
mikestoleyobike: christianblogpetpeeves: Guys, here’s the thing. We are addressing the Christians who idolize these things or people upon the blogs. Notice how we said, “It’s the worst when Christ is never mentioned except for 1 in every 50 posts.” Can you honestly not see the problem with that?

You can...
"But we're supposed to love!" →
