Julie, from past experience, I think we can agree that we are MILES apart on how we approach our dealings with TRUE Christians, FALSE Christians, and non-Christians. I'm not sure if you have in any way changed, but I haven't. I am even MORE EMBOLDENED.
Can I just share with you the purpose of this forum before I go on?
Those who ALREADY KNOW ME ....KNOW WHAT I EXPECT... I want NOTHING TO DO with the garbage I endured on another forum that was supposed to be glorifying to God in Christ's name but was nothing more than a mockery and swine talk by 99%. It's too bad good people compromised true respect for a flawed version.
Participants, here must be accountable to GOD by not hiding behind a cloak of anonymity, and in respect of others who are remaining ON THE ISSUES in discussion, participants are exhorted to keep discussion ON THE ISSUE and OFF the person. This means, WHEN ASKED A SPECIFIC QUESTION you're obliged to answer in a godly respect.
Once a person starts getting off the issue and making it personal, it results in mudslinging. You'll be warned once and are expected to respond with a viable response and NOT a silly excuse. If you refuse to heed a FAIR WARNING you will be banished.
Julie, I'm not interested in the goal of having a high number of visitors here. I'm only interested in talking with people who are seeking ABSOLUTE TRUTH (Jesus Christ) and those that are interested in growing in the wisdom and knowledge that comes from ALL of God's Word and not just the verses that agree with our personal views. I'm very sorry if you can't find it in yourself to submit respectfully to those few simple rules but the path IS narrow, so I want to keep my Christian walk on the narrow path to avoid the dangers that will follow IF I wander off. Prayerfully, you will understand.
