Picked this up from another site.
Some of this (from tentmaker, which I don’t contribute to, just found it on a web search) would help.
A Biblical, Christian, Victorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, Ultimate Reconciliation Site and Discussion Forum. We recognize there are translational issues, as well as many different viewpoints, levels of understanding, and varying degrees of levels of Spirit-revelation within the scriptures. There is MUCH room given for those things to be explored and discussed. However, our focus is WITHIN THE SCRIPTURES. Gary Amirault has noted that there needs to be a respect for scripture in the discussion forum. Not any other members’ point of view crammed down others’ throats, but that the default setting is a respect for scripture. Accurately translated (as much as is currently possible), and the Spirit within the letters having been revealed to us, they are reliable.
There are plenty of other places in the world today that are accepting to the deceit that the scriptures are either not reliable, not necessary, or that don’t understand (or care) that the Father and Son, the Spirit, and the written scriptures work in tandem - that they don’t cancel each other out, nor one make the other unnecessary. TM is not one of those places. ** If anyone has any honest, searching questions about the validity of the scriptures (not just a repeated effort to cast doubt or trash them) any moderator will discuss that by PM and try to help you. ** Also, there is a private talk to mods thread section where again, an honest, loving effort will be made to try to help you grow in the faith.
There are many people that come through our community here that are either weak in the faith or have little-to-no faith at all. They view our opinions, often print them to take with them, **and a strong consideration is made as to how those “little ones” may be affected by our witness. **
Getting rid of conservatives will help too, so I will leave now so the rest of you can carry on.
As to the sissy punk remark, or the fundie remark - those were just silly, and moderators should not have allowed them
This forum is not moderated enough (and heck yeah, that means some of my angry remarks would have been cut also - but that’s fine) even though we have moderators that have the skills to do a good job.
Bye and blessings
