Ethics Image“Celebrity Pastors” has been a topic all over the internet. Kevin DeYoung offers some wise words in the post below and the article on Photo Ethics for Bloggers is telling and helpful. Sometimes you break the law or the spirit of the law without intending to. It is already changing the way that I go about attaching pictures to my posts and will cause me to remove a number of photo’s. I hope all of the posts are both helpful and challenging. Enjoy.
