Some of their rules are quoted in the opening post. You could also go to the site and read them for yourself. If you're going to contribute to this thread, it might be good to know what we're talking about.

godrulz,

Over here you said to logos_x...
godrulz said:
Thank you our resident Christian universalist. This is a serious heresy. Things got so bad at CARM forums with universalists that they are now banned.
This post, had it been made at ChristianForums, could have gotten you banned.

ChristianForums.com RULES state...
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..

buzz ................................................. you lose!

You cannot call someone (or their religious organization) a heretic, but you can call a false belief a heresy.

While I obviously don't agree with godrulz, I appreciate his ability to say it at TOL. And I expect to see it...I am, after all, not presenting the current popular tradition that is the magority opinion, and has become the plausibilty structure of many denominations of the church.
That TOL allows and even encourages this kind of interchange is exactly the way things should be.

So you can call a heresy a heresy, but you can't call a heretic a heretic.

So you can call a heresy a heresy, but you can't call a heretic a heretic.

Hey genius, a heretic is one who believes, teaches, or promotes heresy. So to tell someone that they believe and are teaching heresy is to call them a heretic.

Your attempt to separate the two, and to say that one is acceptable and the other isn't, is a form of legalism.

But of course I'm in no way suggesting that you are a legalist ;)


That said, I wonder whether the CF admins and mods acknowledge that saying "you are teaching heresy" is exactly the same as saying "you are a heretic," or if they try to split hairs the way you do. :think:

There are really many different answers I could give to this post ............................... but I think I'll go with this one. Calling someone a heretic is flaming, but pointing out that something is a heresy, and backing it up with evidence is teaching. :cool:

heretic: A person who holds controversial opinions, especially one who publicly dissents from the officially accepted dogma of the Roman Catholic Church.

heresy: An opinion or a doctrine at variance with established religious beliefs, especially dissension from or denial of Roman Catholic dogma by a professed believer or baptized church member.

Wouldn't a person who believes in/promotes a heresy be a heretic? What's worse? Being a heretic or calling a heretic a heretic?

..oh...and welcome to TOL :)

How much RC dogma do you hold to?

Yeah.
This is why being called a heretic shouldn't be all that troublesome...
