Spell checker

If this post contained spellnig erorrs, would you dout its credibilty?

It would definitely cause me to question its content. I might even just stop reading. I’d know that spell checking is available and would wonder about the reliability of the writer’s message.

As Christians, our behavior is also under scrutiny. When we act badly through words, deeds, or even body language, we cause non-Christians to doubt our credibility. Worse, we may cause them to doubt the validity of Christianity altogether.

Christians, make sure you always use your “spell checker”. Don’t cause another to stumble by your carelessness.
