Feel encouraged to respond to a banned member's post. Most often the post is going to be unorthodox, so it would probably help others to address it. Just remember, if you ask any questions they will not be able to respond.

 

On another note, we have banned around a handful of people this week. The number 1 reason that has occurred is because they do not directly respond to anyone, but instead talk in circles or use the board as a soap box. How rude would it be for a teacher at a bible study to present his case and then ask for engagement through discussion, dialogue and debate, only for him to ignore you and not address what you say? I'm sure you would stop attending a bible study like that as would I.

 

Our simple engagement here in this thread Justme (between us) is what is considered acceptable behavior. Members do not have to necessarily agree on every theological point, however, there are degrees of orthodoxy and unorthodoxy. Some truth is essential to the Christian faith, while others are non essential. Some unorthodoxy is just a waste of time to address (hypotheticals), while other unorthodoxy is damaging to the Christian faith. Some things we can ignore, but other things and the people which speak such things are said in Scripture for us not to entertain (the fool) or even to give a place in our homes (2 John 1:10).

 

God bless,

William

I would like to build just a bit upon William excellent and well thought out comments.

 

Fact, this is a Biblically based forum. We cannot allow anyone to claim that their message supersede that of the Scriptures. Now there is room for discussion and debate on Biblical issues. We are not all in the same place on the path. Some are a head, some are behind, and some are walking beside us but we are all headed, hopefully, in the same direction. Thus we cannot always fault someone for not knowing what we know, for not believing what we believe, or not studying as much some have. However when it comes to a person who claims that God Himself told me such and such. That cannot stand.

When I have seen people make posts I suspect are heretical, I try to ask questions which would clarify their position. Sometimes, people may misspeak, and sometimes they are promoting full blown heresy. It's necessary to understand which is which.

Gosh, thanks for everyone who responded! That's one special thing I really respect is how William & Origen and others give information sh quickly. Thank you all.

 

I have one more question; there is another web site that uses close to your name Christian Forums. Are you connected in any way to then? I had a serious issue with them. From all I see you are not anything like that web site.

No affiliation whatsoever.

 

Though we do own Christianforums.org, christforums.com, christforums.net, reformedchristianity.org and many more domains which all point back to this one site: christforums.org.

Willian but Christian forums.co is also a site owned and opperated by the Seventhday Adventists, and do you have a connection with them? I am a little confused.

am very pleased with that! I found that just about anyone or any idea or christian or pagan is allowed. I still post once and great while there. The other forum I belonged to for almost 15 years closed recently The Study Bible Forum which was sponsored by the Lockman Foundation which is the New American Standard Bible publishers. The SBF just lost so many peoples interest. So it was ended as it should have been.

I know what you mean. Some "Christian" forums are not "Christian" forums. They are misnamed.

Yes. Satan doesn't like it when members talk about things in Christ that he doesn't understand. If he doesn't understand, then he uses his rules that he made to ban the member. Satan hates Christ with a passion.

G'day I777

 

I'd be willing to bet Satan's understanding of Scripture surpasses most everyone. Satan is far to clever to present an elementary argument like "the bible isn't true". Take for example what Satan argued from Scripture to Christ Jesus! “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written: He will give his angels charge of you” (Matthew 4:6).

 

Satan is a master craftsman by design, and completely capable of accomplishing his mission. The one thing I have learned is not to believe everyone that can quote a Scriptural text. Church history has shown us many heretics and cults that have twisted the word of God. I'm sure Satan is quite happy with modern Evangelism and its streams of Prosperity Doctrines and various doctrines which suggest that God is not soverign over our salvation, let alone the teaching that a Christian can do whatever he/she pleases and be saved.

 

God bless,

William

I haven't found an internet forum yet that isn't being run by Satan and his friends. It makes it very difficult to share the latest details of the Tree of Life.

I've had many people come to the forum and make similar claims. I pray that you do not end up like them.

When Jesus came preaching the gospel of God, there were plenty of false prophets around at that time, too. Those who are chosen will hear the true voice and obey it. I heard it a long time ago and now I am in him and he is in me.

 

Revelation 3:

20: Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Romans 11:

3: "Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have demolished thy altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life."

4: But what is God's reply to him? "I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Ba'al."

5: So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.

6: But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

7: What then? Israel failed to obtain what it sought. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened,

8: as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, down to this very day."

 

I'm from the nation that cannot be understood unless you're chosen to know to understand.

 

Jeremiah 15:

15: Behold, I am bringing upon you a nation from afar, O house of Israel, says the LORD. It is an enduring nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language you do not know, nor can you understand what they say.

 

Like I said, there isn't any internet forum that isn't run by Satan today.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that 1777 has not read Proverbs.

"Hello, I am a prophet and you are all Satan" is not how Paul would have handled making a first impression ... and he wasn't known for his tact.
