    Welcome to the Other Christian Denominations Forum

    Welcome!

    You have entered one of the hottest forums on the Baptist Board! I’m sure that just about everyone has heard the cliché that one does not talk about politics or religion in mixed company. This forum tends to demonstrate why.

    As co-moderator of this forum, I tend to be rather light handed and often lurk only in the shadows. If I were too heavy handed, the forum would lose its purpose. Therefore some topics may degenerate rather quickly. It is my opinion that it would be unreasonable to think that the nature of the debates presented here would always remain civil, given the fact that we are all “earnestly contending for the faith.” I do ask, though, that all participants take a moment to read the posting rules of our site at this link: http://www.baptistboard.com/postingrules.html If you are a registered and logged in member, please feel free to report obvious violations by using the report post feature at the bottom of an offending post. [​IMG]

    Having said that, I am posting this as a reminder to our participants. Christ told us in Matthew 5:14-16 that we are like the lights of a city on a hill. The world around us can view us from far off without our even knowing it. Perhaps nowhere is this more the case than on the internet. This board is read by hundreds of people a day, most of them non-members, many of them atheist or non-Christians. Our conduct and demeanor are the only Gospel that some of our lurkers may ever receive. With this in mind, it is our duty to conduct ourselves in such a way as to bring honor to our Savior.

    All participants in this forum are Christian, though we hail from a variety of denominations. To find a member’s denominational affiliation, simply click the profile icon at the top of their post. [​IMG] This may help the reader better understand the poster's position in a debate and the function can be used by even unregistered readers.

    So dive in! The water’s choppy, sometimes cold, sometimes hot, rarely tepid, and full of piranha and sharks, but for all its faults, this forum is possibly the single most educational on the site and has proven to be an excellent training ground for aspiring apologists.

    Your servant in Christ,

    Clint Kritzer

    As a frequent poster on this area of the mesaage board I would like to add a note of sincere gratitude and appreciation for the work done here by the Baptist Board administrators as well as deep appreciation for the mission and vision of this board as Clint has stated it here.

    I am also deeply grateful for the depth of Bible insight and wisdom that can be found in the posts of many who post on this section of the board.

    May God bless this group both those who dig in to the material for the various subjects in focus and those who read with an unbiased objective heart seeking to discover new truths in God's Word.

    (Not sure if Clint meant to keep this thread unlocked and open to posting -- but since I had the chance to add my two cents...)

    in Christ,

    Bob

    Dear Klint Kritzer,

    You posted this in 2001 - today is the first time I read it! Thank you for it. It came as a timely reminder for me, to stay a Christian always - even while participating on this forum. Sometimes - too often, I cannot forgive myself for having said something that better could have been said in a better way or best could have remained unsaid. Sometimes I don't know how else to get my point across than in my 'bad' way, being of limited intelectual potential to do it another or better way. Therefore please forgive but please do not ignore, my posts!?

    Yup! ... you weren't kidding. Feels like I stuck my head in a fire storm.
