Critique without reading

26 08 2010

One of my biggest pet peeves is people who will accept another person’s critique of an author or speaker without actually listening or reading that author for themselves.

Whenever I begin to be critical of an author or speaker, I must verify if I have actually read him or her.  If I have not, I immediately stop.  I wish that more people would do that as well.

I see blog after blog of people who critique authors they have never read.  I see blog after blog that sites other people’s reviews but not their own.  Very inconsistent.  God is using many different authors and bloggers to speak his truth to a hurting generation.  Its about time we listen to them instead of immediately bashing them because we haven’t read them or have been told not to.
