    Espouse liberality,
    Defiling family values,
    Non stop condemnation of a President at war,
    Demanding the Boy Scouts renounce their values,
    Advancing the agenda of the San Francisco politico,
    Non believers being allowed posting privileges.
    etc.

    These and many more unchristian viewpoints are openly espoused on this board.
    It is becoming increasingly difficult to deal with posters that don't have a Biblical viewpoint. I understand it would be reduced to a name calling mess, but substantive discussions, with Biblical views are difficult.

    Where are the posting rules? I don't know how to find them.

    Heading for the golf course, 33deg. outside, that's dedication. I'll check back later.

    The last time I checked I don't think I saw a rule that stated that only stances that agree with hillclimber1 are allowed. :laugh:

    I do think that only Christians are allowed to post.

    Watch it Ken....

    With all the Salvation judging that has been goin on around here over the last 2 weeks, we may be looking at a witch hunt....

    I am sure some will say I am not a Christian because I have friends that are RC, I like Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church, I listen to CCM... I like the movie, Pirates of the Carribean, and I am American Baptist, which is part of the WCC... I like the NLT... etc.

    But then again, the liberals might torch me because I support prayer in School, don't like the tree hugging environmentalists, I like Huckabee, am against Gays in leadership in church, and I think if a person that votes for a pro-choice candidate they will indirectly stand in judgment for abortion...

    Man, Now I am questioning my own salvation... NOT!

    I'll help you out, if I can, so as you don't have to remember something to type in to find posting rules.

    Just go to near the bottom of any BB page, and you can find how to get to the posting rules.

    But I should make you aware that the posting rules may be a little hard to find.

    You would have to click on the words "Posting Rules" in order to get there.

    I guess that the 'upper case' letters "P" and "R" are confusing to some folks. :rolleyes:

    Ed

    P.S. [Edited to add] I will cut some slack on anyone with some vision problems, here, in finding the posting rules. The white lettering on the blue strip may actually be hard for some to read. Sorry, I did not mean to offend any who actually may have any vision impairment, as I myself have a little, and should have been more thoughtful about this. But I won't cut the same slack to one who has been here well over a year, has over 2200 posts, yet who has never actually looked at all of a page on the BB. That is not in the same category, IMO. BTW, the "white on blue" lettering is easier to see, for me, than the "blue on blue" lettering of the 'link'.

    Just as I am all for letting non Christians attend my church, I am all for non Christians coming to this board to read and post, as long as they are courteous.

    love,

    //The white lettering on the blue strip may
    actually be hard for some to read.//

    Select the items and they will change color.
    This is good lots of times when lettering
    is hard to read. For me the white on blue
    becomes blue on white.

    Literally though, I think the opening post (OP)
    is wanting the unwritten rules to be written???


    Like they say:
    One person's heresy is another person's DOGMA!

    Sometimes it's not the non-Christians that you have to warn to be courteous. Actually, most of the bad behavior I've noticed comes from us Christians.

    It's about equal for me, but we all lose our cool now and then.

    Don't nobody bother me unless you're already a Christian, mmmkay? The thought of witnessing to non-believers, or answering questions from non-believers, or merely being even remotely associated with their uncouth ways just makes me shudder. :laugh: :thumbs:

    When I moderated here, the decision was made to ban non-Christains from posting here, and I remember it being just about unanimous among us. If anybody here remembers those days, few of the non-Christain posters demonstrated any willingnes to learn, we spent most of the time on the defensive, and were treated horribly, by most of them. There are plenty of sites non-Christains can go to bash us, and you are more than welcome to go there to be a witness. I went to a few of them, but won't anymore.

    Well, the fact is that we are a BB and seen by all. Lots of testimony in that alone IMHO.

    It just struck me as being one more reason why some people are viewing church as if it's a country club, with Christians being not too accepting of outsiders.

    Seems like it's the other way around, to me. People keep expecting me to be sorry for what I believe.

    The bible supports the church being an exclusive club. That's what I get.

    Well, hillclimber, Merry Christmas to you too!

    But I just read your first post again and while I see some of what you said, I sure don't see it non-stop.

    Maybe after Christmas, you'll feel like stopping back in and visiting again.
