    I see the UN Committee for Reputation Assignment Propriety (aka UNCRAP) has convened.

      Maybe we should have all members who wish to 'profess' Christianity take the TOL Statement of Faith seriously enough to agree with it. Anyone who doesn't shouldn't be allowed to pretend that they are Christian, at least on TOL.

          Simple, ask the Christians on TOL to report anyone whose profile proclaims, "Christian," who isn't posting threads which are in agreement with the doctrine stated in the Statement of Faith. If they don't retract their post, they'll have to be changed to something other than Christian, until they accpet the tenets of the Christian faith.

              So, do you think we should kick Old Earth Creationists off the Christian list?

                Could they call themselves "Christian(other)"?
                or do you want them to completely use another category?

                  If they don't line up, they're not enduring sound doctrine, they ought not to be allowed to claim the name of Jesus.

                    There's too many (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Branch Davidians, etc.) who would abuse the Christian (other) category. I don't even think it belongs. Either you're Christian, or you've accepted un-sound doctrine as Christianity. That's what I think.

                      Do the moderators have to completely subscribe to the TOL statement of faith to become moderators?

                        While I think your idea is a potentially good one I'm not sure how it would work. If they don't just use the "other" part of Christian we'd have to have a bunch more names and even then some people just wouldn't fit any so we'd have to keep the "other" category. I guess from looking at the Statement of Faith the biggest problem would maybe be, like Crow brought up, old earth vs. new earth. Other than that most people probably don't deny things in it.

                          I'm OEC, Aimiel. So y'all make your case that I am not saved nor a Christian.

                            How old is "old"?

                              Maybe there could be a TOL Certified Christian™ option.

                                I was once an OEC. Whether you are OEC or YEC is of no consequence. It's non-salvific. I don't think Aimiel was suggesting that it is.

                                You are definitely saved in my book (not that what I have to say even matters).
