In an honest attempt to create discussion regarding the Bible version/translation area, and hoping that it would be seen that having it become an ecumenical forum was a good thing, I instead received the following post from Dr Bob... Jude - Your "poll" is divisive and creating a problem where there is none. 1. Baptist only forums are "safe haven" for baptists to discuss issues as baptists, without interference from non-baptists. Remember, this entire site is a BAPTIST site, allowing non-baptists limited access to certain parts. 2. You can start ANY THREAD on Bible translations or versions or whatever on the "OTHER RELGIONS" forum. Any christian may post there and the problem is solved! "So brother, go for it but do not create a problem here where there is none. The BB is not "poll-driven"; it has a purpose and will not veer from it. Poll over. Sorry you do not have an address or I would have emailed you privately. Your choice." Sorry you see contributions from 'non-baptists' as interference. Sorry that democracy -free speech- is not tolerated here. Sorry that my attempt to open up this discussion board is seen as a problem. I will not be posting anything anymore. This kind of narrowness is simply intolerable. Good bye.
