I tried the ‘search’ function with the aim of pulling up all references to particular verses - thinking that, if a new person or a lurker had a question on, say, Matthew 7:21, they could do a search and find all the places on the Forum where that verse has come up; that way one would be ‘up to speed’ on the past and current thinking amongst this group.
Alas, I did not find a consistent way to do this, which leads to a suggestion: It would be a very useful thing for the Forum to have a list of scriptural references. That would be a difficult task, I reckon, as we don’t yet have a consistent way of verse citation - we might use, for instance, “John 3:16” or “GosJohn 3:16” or “Jno 3.16” - or many other ways. But, if the scriptural search was numerical only , i.e., 3.16 or 3:16, there would not be as much ambiguity.
Moderators - is it even possible to amass a list of scripture references from the archives? I can really see a use for it among the many ‘lurkers’ that are out there, troubled by a verse or a few, that don’t want to post their concerns but don’t have a way of directly pulling up the thinking on that particular verse/s.
