If You Can't Say Anything Nice...

Thomas Whitley

Regular readers of this blog will know that I maintained a theology series for a while. You will also have noticed that the series stopped fairly abruptly with this post on 8 August. There are various reasons for stopping this series, but the main one goes back to a piece of advice that I heard often growing up:

If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.

I'm sure most of you are familiar with this piece of advice. Although, I heard it early and often, I am not the first to heed this advice. I have (very) strong opinions (some may say that this is an understatement) that I am rarely able to keep to myself. Thus, doing a theology series around my theology class was difficult because of the nature of the class and the vast disagreements that I have with my theology professor. After being in class, then, and trying to come to this space to write about theology, I was rarely in a good frame of mind to write objectively, so I chose to heed the old adage above. I make no promise that I will always heed the above advice (you know this to be true if you have read this space for some while), but I did think it was time to offer some "reason" as to why such a promising series (in my eyes) was discontinued.
