  • What TOL is. And what TOL isn't.

    Every now and then its good to restate our mission here on TOL.

    WHAT TOL IS NOT:
    TOL is not a place to unite all Christians as one Body. The Bible says the truth divides. Uniting for the sake if uniting is evil and wrong.

    TOL is not a place for limp wristed "nicer than God" Christian blabbering.

    TOL is not a place for the mere purpose of fellowship, although we HIGHLY encourage fellowship and have fun doing it, but it is NOT TOL's focus.

    TOL is not a place for the sole purpose of increasing our post counts and user reputations, although we DO allow SPAMMING in moderation and even encourage it in creative ways in specific threads - yet even then in moderation.

    WHAT TOL IS:

    A place to debate politics, religion and the rest.

    Another extremely popular Christian forum states the following in their rules:
    Rule No. 1 - No "Flaming"
    a. Directly calling another member “cultist”, “heretic” or “bigot” as these are personal attacks and are not conducive to civil discussion.
    1.2 You will not directly call another member or his or her religious organization a “cult”, “heretic”, “demonic” or “satanic” but you may discuss doctrines, teachings, practices or writings of other religious organizations as long as empirical evidence is provided.
    1.5You will not directly state or otherwise imply that another member is not a Christian if he or she falls under Rule 6.5 and 6.6 and he she does not have a hidden faith icon without providing substantiation from scripture or doctrine or historic church writtings.
    We at TOL feel those rules are hateful, wicked and wrong.

    God says....
    Leviticus 19:17 ‘You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him.

    And ....

    Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better Than love carefully concealed.

    And ....

    1Timothy 5:20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.

    And ....

    Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.

    Therefore at TOL we encourage the harsh rebuke of the wicked and we encourage appropriate name calling and we especially encourage challenging people to test themselves to see if they are truly in the faith.

    Other things that TOL is:
    TOL is a place to expose the wickedness of abortion.

    TOL is a place to expose the wickedness of sexual perversion and immorality.

    TOL is a place to expose the lie of false religions and the futility of atheism.

    TOL is a place to help Christians learn how to judge. (Mat 7)

    TOL is a place to expose liberals and their failed worldviews.

    TOL is right wing.

    TOL is not your typical mamby pamby Christian website. At TOL the truth hurts. We realize this approach will keep our membership level much smaller than the standard Christian websites but if you are looking for RIGHTEOUS "in your face" "tell it like it is" truth, TOL is the place to be and is like no other site on the internet.

      One could probably make a neat sub-title for TOL based on that verse.
      grace & peace

        That's funny because earlier tonight we were comparing that verse with another Christian Forums subtitle.

                              It's a battlefield brother, not a recreation room!
                              it's a fight! it isn't play
                              run if you want to, run if you will
                              but I came here to stay!


                              (the following is a true story) When I was a kid at Santa Fe Mennonite Church we had an interim Pastor for about two years who was an Ex-Marine. The Mennonite conference finally told our little church he either had to become a member or we had to get rid of him. We learned a lot of good stuff during that two years. Including a bunch of neat songs like the one I quoted above!
