    the 'righteous'.......

    Depends on who you ask, but 'right' and 'left' have their own meanings within different political/religious contexts. 'Far right' may connote 'orthodoxy',....meaning they hold the fundamentalist conservative end of principles, assuming a 'right, proper, true' position. Some may exaggerate that 'rightness'

    Does a Far Right Christian, believe the Christian Bible is the written Word of God?

    Then does a Far Right Christian live God’s Word? Live God’s Word as it says in the following verses?

    (Matthew 5:43-44) “You have learnt how it was said, you must love your neighbor and hate your enemy, but I say this to you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

    (Matthew 5:39) “You have learnt how it was said: ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ But I say this to you: offer the wicked man no resistance.”

    (Matthew 6:19) “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

    (Matthew 5:48) “Even the pagans do as much, do they not? You must therefore be perfect just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

(If this is unlawful, what are the other options?)
    Here's the thing.... if you are providing a link (YouTube) or otherwise and it helps support the topic you are starting it will likely be fine.

    However, if the intent is to merely grab TOL traffic and send it elsewhere that is something we frown upon.

    In regard to YouTube, you can embed YouTube videos in your posts so that's the best option since it doesn't send people off TOL.

    "TOL is entering it's 12th year. The following rules are the most current commandments for our forum. Follow these rules and you will be a happy camper here on TOL. Break these rules and you will likely be banned. Keep in mind TOL is a biased forum, leaning very far to the Christian right, and therefore we interpret our rules from OUR perspective. There are many dissenting voices on TOL who have been debating us and fellowshipping with us for years, but those voices understand whose house party they are at and are respectful of that.

    links allowed for educational purposes (not spamming purposes)

    I've discussed this with Knight before via PMs. It is expressly against protocol to link to other discussion forums/boards....but one can post pertinent links that relate to whatever subject one is discussing or debating over, as a 'source-link', which also contains the full article one has shared excerpts from. I do it rather frequently when I feel its helpful....being 'educational' to the discussion. Of course links to informative articles or educational resources related to religious discussions are NOT SPAM.

    I wasn't talking about linking anything and I certainly would not want to drum up business for them, but someone there suggested this site and that seemed to conflict with the eighth.

    So basically, any talk of other fora is frowned upon here... its always good to know. I don't want to ruffle any feathers needlessly. I never realized that it would be considered bad manners.

    The thing is I'm looking for a new place to spend time discussing the Holy Bible. I have used other sites and the way people rip into each other is not the way I prefer to discuss the Bible. At the moment I am bouncing around a few places to see which shoe fits the best.

    Please do not post in ALL CAPS or in all bolded text.
    Please do not make posts that are extremely long.
    These may not be top ten, but they are common, as cigarettes are more common the heroin, yet cigarettes are the bigger problem because it is common.

    I'm new and curious, I don't want to break any, so I thought it best to ask.

    I don't think so.
    Only a small amount of your posts are long to establish a foundation, but your followup posts are not long.
