    1. If you are going to start a thread in this forum, you must be clearly identified as a Baptist since this is a Baptist-Only area.

    2. As such, only BAPTISTS are allowed to post on any thread in this Forum. Non-baptists may feel free to start a thread on the same subject in the "Other Religions" forum.

    3. Do not start a thread with an attack or a flame as your premise. This is in violation of BB rules.

    4. Do not bring dirty laundry from another forum into this forum. This one has enough of its own.

    5. Remember that we're presenting ideas and not destroying people. Teach patiently as 2 Tim 2 says, or don't post at all.

    6. Do not attack the other poster; if you want to question the opinion, that's fine. But do so in a God honoring way. Don't attack the person; the goal is to build up and win for the truth's sake.

    7. It is not acceptable to question someone's salvation relative to Bible preference. KJVOs have said, "Get saved and you'll understand 17th century English." MVs have said, "If you were as spiritual as me, you'd leave the KJV behind." Neither will be tolerated.

    8. Stop turning every single thread into a KJV vs. all other versions discussion. If it's off topic, it's going in the trash. Continual violations of this will result in discipline.

    9. Certain terms are off limits in this forum.
    For example:
    • The KJVO crowd will not not refer to the Modern Versions as "perversions," "satanic," "devil's bibles," etc...nor call those that use them "Bible correctors," "Bible doubters," etc.
    • The MV crowd will not refer to the KJVOs as "cults," "heretics," "sacrilegious," etc...nor refer to the KJV in derisive terms such as "King Jimmy's Bible," "Pickled Preserved Version," etc.
    10. If a thread is going "off topic" after 5 pages, it will be shut down by the moderators. Feel free to start a NEW thread on a cognate area that was left unresolved.

    11. If you start a thread, at any time you may request that the thread be closed, but the Forum Moderators reserve the right to leave the thread open or close the thread at their discretion.

    If you have a problem with any of these basic rules of civility and Christian courtesy, you know where the door is. If you violate them, you will be SHOWN where the door is.

    :thumbsup: And once again, to keep from automatically disappearing into St Catherine's trashpile, we update the thread.
