      He was trying to be funny in how he told you that you misspelled "quote."

        highs and lows

        I'm new here but I love debating with fellow Christians about the Bible and what it means to them and what it's all about and seeing this fourm get wattered down already kills my buzz a bit but I guess we can just weed out the boys from the men so to speak. Personaly, my favorite verse is Isaiah 13:3 since I have been called by both Jim Gall and Larry Randolph a might warrior for God and it was his way of telling me that I hadn't lost touch with Him and that I was still in the game. So what's your guyses and girls favorite verse and why?

          One of my favorites is Ecclesiastes 9:10 - "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might"

          I like that verse because of what it doesn't say. It doesn't say that God predestines what you can and cannot do in this world. In other words, the sky is the limit Christian, so dream big and act boldly.

          BTW, welcome to TOL!

              I know that this may not be the main purpose of this site, but some people may have no other place to turn, and there are many out there who are hurting, and need to hear the hope that only those who have faith in the Jesus of the bible can offer them.

              My main reason for being here, is to reach those people, and to stand firm in a presentation of the gospel that is undefiled, unperverted, and pure in it's simplicity.

              That opportunity has been greatly diminished, and the cultist have won their day.

                I am someone who was recently Christian through and through. I have occasionally posted on the Christian only forum inadvertantly, usually with support or clarification of the issue being discussed. I usually post from a Christian perspective when I post there, because that is where I am coming from. I use Bible verses and everything Will this be allowed (I am currently leaning towards atheism, but am still working out what I am, and what I believe)? Should I just be more careful where I post? I have been more careful recently, because I respect the rules set down by you guys, and I respect the need for a forum where issues can be discussed and debated between Christians. If the answer is, "don't post there", then I will abide by that and be careful where I post. As my posts in that forum have usually been constructive, should I just not worry about it? I know the line has been fuzzed a little, but I would rather not cross lines that have been drawn Any input would be great. Thank you!

                  This is just what I have been looking for, a place to discuss, debate, or just take a look at the Word of God with others who Love the Word as much as I do. There are so many other places to take on the non believers, and I visit them too, but this is truly a blessing.

                    Why would there be any problem with these rules? It sounds like the dialog would be actually pleasant and non-combative.

                      Completely agree.

                      God bless all.

                      Your brother in Christ.

                        If you apply the new rules to the Exclusive Christian Forum then you might as well get red of the forum alltogether. Sozo is right. There are a lot of people who clame to be christian and are not. As a matter of fact don't even know what salvation is and it is most predomanent is the OV Theology. If one does understand salvation then the learning is so shallow that they need good teachin in order to grow. One must at least clame Christ to be a part of this forum.

                            I tend to agree with you on this being more of a 'step backwards', especially given there ARE people on here who do seem to want cause non-constructive debate, and criticize openly, even if there is no truth to what they are stating. I don't mind debate, but when it is one side just criticizing the other there is no 'fun' in that; no one should have to walk away feeling inadequate in their faith; especially those who are just brand new to the Christian world. For someone to tell them they are talking trash, is not constructive; it wounds, and doesn't speak well of the speakers own faith. We are an example, and others ARE watching; I think when there is wounding debate going on, that only confirms for those unbelievers around us that there really isn't anything special about Christians afterall.

                            I think if we want to minister to the 'lost' on this forum, we can gamely jump into other threads where they lurk and slowly edge our way in. Although if they post honest questions here, and they are not looking to stir trouble, I can't argue with allowing them to post them in the ECT forum-so long as they are actually ready for what they might hear!

                              No posts since October 3rd, 2006?

                              I just ran across this thread. I think the original idea, of making it just for believers, is a great idea.

                              What is the present policy?

                                Currently people who label themselves as something other than Christian can post in the EC forum as long as the wear a clean shirt and pretend the Bible might not be completely made up.
