The BaptistBoard is designed primarily for Baptists. Half of the forums are restricted to active members in Baptist churches. The remainder are open to allow folks who claim any "christian" religious affiliation to post freely. Recently we asked certain non-Baptist posters to not "proselytize" their religion, not to declare that "salvation was only through their church". This is NOT a forum to try to cast doubt on a person's relationship with the Lord or to try to convert someone weak in the faith to another religion. Since certain posters continued to violate that basic request and would not temper their language, we have had to take away their privilege of posting on the BaptistBoard. This is a "last step" that we personally wished we did not have to take. We thought it important to let everyone see that our actions were not capricious or out of anger. Thank you all for understanding.
