    Often th1b.taylor it is how it is done..
    phrases like YOU are not a christian.. are not acceptable..
    Showing scripture that refutes a view is not in the same vain as the attacking YOU are not a christian..

    As you a long time member well know there have been many times one denomination just will not believe another is Christian ...
    You are not Christian because you do not play music in church or You are not Christian because you do play music in church .. That kind of stupid stuff ...
    Personally i believe there are Christian in denominations that are not Christian .. That is God business .. we are sent to the world the world is not Christian.. :shrug

    I understand where you are coming from but I have to wonder if any of us are truly in a position to judge righteously. This is why I will try to land on 2 Peter 3:15, Ephesians 4:29-32, Romans 15:1-2, and others of the like.

    It isn't the bringing to light what we perceive as errors that gets moderated here on CFnet. It is the attitude in which it is done. When members fail to be polite or respectful of others, which causes the discussions to move away from civility, that is when we are compelled to step in and apply the rules.

    If one really thinks about it, why does a Christian site need rules at all??

    Hi, Calvin here;
    If I may add a thought here.
    I have come onto this forum claiming to be a Christian, and you people have accepted me as such, but suppose I am not really Christian at all but someone with an axe to grind against Christians.
    Moderate rules such as you have here are a good buffer against 'nasty'.


    There is at least one forum (pseudo christian) where there are so many prohibitive rules that there is nothing left to discuss but the weather..Oh yes there is even a thread for that I think.
    So, we coulld count our blessings here rather than gripe?

    Well, we could be going overboard on our doctrinal beliefs.
    Everything becomes a law, even salvation.

    Bans are not imposed at CFnet for having different beliefs. Bans are imposed when a member refuses to abide by the ToS. Every member is told to read the ToS when they create an account.

    The Gospel, when preached or taught reviles those that are not indwelt and they do get mean about hearing a good Hell's Frie and Brimstone message. There god does not exercise wrath.

    Did you indicate that you agreed to the ToS when you joined? It's a rhetorical question.

    No link to the closed thread in your OP so if someone wasn't in that thread they've no way to know what you're talking about.

    And that title doesn't pop in a search on this board either. That being said, it is a privilege to participate on a forum. As such a forum can be partisan if its ownership and those in charge choose.
    I was part of a bible forum that was very politically bias. They'd shut down anything that criticized their faves . There's nothing you can do but seek elsewhere to get what won't be let off your chest here. Plenty of political forums embrace conflict.

    It shouldn't be here in the community committed to the Messiah of peace.
    That's my view. We're hot about our own theology. Politics can get nastier because it is a different animal than that which stokes our drama and passions concerning the politics of soul and eternity.

    Rules don't have to be changed to make you happy you can vent. Christian's are seeing in our world that we share with unbelievers what it looks like and how it impacts our faith when groups demand to get in our face with what offends us. How is it right that rules here should change so that can happen here among us?

    Get over it. That's my advice. You're here because you're permitted to be and want to be. Little respect.

    What you are preaching is most certainly not the Gospel but rather a mix of Gnosticism/New Age/Eastern Mysticism and sci-fi. The reason people reject what you preach is because it is not the truth. There would not be one person in the history of Christianity, including the Apostles, who would agree with your version of the Gospel and understanding of Scripture. It truly makes me sad that you believe that what you believe is the truth.

    Consider that most Christians defend a book that was given to man after men who wrote it said it wasn't written by them . Instead they tell men to take it on faith they took dictation from the Holy Spirit of God.
    Consider also that the foundation stone from whence we glean our knowledge, gnosis, of Jesus is that same book. And in that book the author Holy Spirit states He is the source of all including the human intellectual capacity to comprehend Him by reading the book He wrote.

    Then consider that there were councils that convened stating the only way to that author through faith is to only believe and accept as eternal truth what was approved to be put in that book. And all else was heresy and/or anathema.

    Does the bible believing believe in God first? Or do they first believe in the book?

    That wasn't my question. I asked if you agreed to them when you joined.

    The now dead/executed serial rapist murderer of women , Ted Bundy, was given by his trial judge all sorts of positive accolades including cudos to Bundy's legal prowess, being he was a trained lawyer. Was Ted Bundy saved? Did he enter Heaven after dying in the Florida electric chair?

    Humility is a positive attribute. A great lesson was provided in Jesus Christ and his behavior here on earth.

    The difference it makes when you disobey the rules of any forum you choose to join is, when you don't respect those rules, you don't have to remain joined to that forum.
    People don't enter into a forum and change the rules of the forum. The forum was very upfront when you decided to agree to the TOS and then apply for the privilege of membership.

    Hey! That's sort of like the laws of God when someone feels called by His grace to be better than they are by renouncing the dead consciousness they have. In order to obey the laws of a righteous God and be as great as He knows they can be by living to a much higher standard.
