British church leaders are becoming so concerned about the temptations of the blogosphere that they have drawn up a list of â€œTen Blogging Commandments.â€
Based on the original 10 Commandments, the new cyberspace rules were delivered in a very different setting. Instead of by Moses on the top of Mount Sinai, the list was drawn up by the Evangelical Alliance during a Godsblog conference in London. The Evangelical Alliance was formed in 1846 and represents thousands of different churches across Britain. Christian bloggers are being asked to sign up to revamped rules â€“ which are etched in â€œvirtual stone.â€ Full Article And the commandments:
- You shall not put your blog before your integrity.
- You shall not make an idol of your blog.
- You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin.
- Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog.
- Honour your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes.
- You shall not murder someone elseâ€™s honour, reputation or feelings.
- You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind.
- You shall not steal another personâ€™s content.
- You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger.
- You shall not covet your neighbour’s blog ranking.Â Be content with your own content.
