Jim, this time I don’t agree with you
 
Everyone knows that a son of a bitch (sorry for being so polite...) has deleted Jim West’s blog. A corward act done by a person (?) who was envious of his success as a biblioblogger.

Now Jim writes that he’s not going to re-enter the blogging universe with a personal weblog. Despite Jim is a Baptist pastor and I (think) am an agnostic, I have read his blog everyday. And I rarely disagreed with his comments on various topics. In these days, I’ve read only «condolences», «goodbyes», «epitaphs» and funeral-like comments that made me change my mind on Jim’s decision.

I believe that his choice is absolutely wrong. First, the brainless coward who deleted his blog may think he has won (what? I don’t know...). And, even more important, I - and the other 400,000 people who have read his posts - will be missing news, events, book reviews, and reliable facts on the Bible and its world.

I remember a couple of Old Testament verses:

וְאִם-אָסוֹן, יִהְיֶה--וְנָתַתָּה נֶפֶשׁ, תַּחַת נָפֶשׁ.
עַיִן תַּחַת עַיִן, שֵׁן תַּחַת שֵׁן, יָד תַּחַת יָד, רֶגֶל תַּחַת רָגֶל.
כְּוִיָּה תַּחַת כְּוִיָּה, פֶּצַע תַּחַת פָּצַע, חַבּוּרָה, תַּחַת חַבּוּרָה.
(Exodus 21:23-25)

Its author was a smart guy.

Jim, it doesn’t take much time. Get a domain and start it over again. One post after the other. As you’ve always done.http://www.biblioblogs.com/2008/02/20/a-scandalous-actshapeimage_2_link_0
