    Why is it that every issue that has to do with the outward appearance is put on lock? Why is it every conservative christian has their posts edited and deleted? Why is it that any idea contrary to modern baptistic views is not allowed, ex: the headcovering, foolish jesting, ect. Why is it my Pastor was kicked out for doing nothing? Why is it that baptist never want to change their ways? Why is it that we claim the Bible is the final authority but we twist, construe, and ignore it when it has to do with us? Why are the moderators bias?

    Pardon for butting in, but ...

    Plenty of conservative (even hyperconservative) Christians post here and and don't get edited and deleted.

    If he was doing "nothing" he probably wouldn't have been kicked out.

    Because they're asked to be biased against folks who would disrupt the forums.

    As to "foolish jesting," just ask anybody. Moderators have the "jesting" area of their brains removed when they take the moderator's oath. Honest. I saw it on a Web page somewhere.

    If you do a search, you will find that most threads having to do with outward appearance have NOT been locked.

    No one has their posts edited or deleted unless they break the posting rules they agreed to when they joined the Baptist Board.

    I don't know where you're coming from here. I disagree with a lot of posts, but I allow them. If I locked every thread I disagreed with, the forums would not be nearly as full as they are now.

    I don't know your pastor, so that is ONE thing you cannot blame ME for...

    Are you speaking for yourself? BTW, do you attend a Baptist church?

    I don't know if you do that or not; but I don't happen to twist the Bible to suit myself.

    As a moderator, I try very hard not to be biased. However, I will not allow name calling, unkind remarks or personal attacks in my forums.

    I always give a warning before a thread is closed. If the warning is not heeded, then I lock it.

    I suggest you go back and reread the posting rules. You can find them here:

    Your friendly (unbiased) moderator,

    Again, baptistic does not mean one is baptist, but rather beleives in baptism. So that could be anyone who baptizes, Methodist, COC, COG.


    1. I don't know about your pastor,but they do not take it easily to ban someone, so I trust he would ahve had continual breaking of forum rules. This is the wrong forum, this is a women's forum.
    2.Why do we never want to cheange our ways? Because we beleive in the bible, not men's opinions that come from twisting scriprure. How about you change your ways and stop taking scripture out of context, twisting it, do some decent bible study, the right way, using good bible study skills, if you have any.
    3. Since the Bible is our final authoirty and men and their opinions are not, we beleive scripture, which relates to number 2, why we don't change.
    4. Biased how? Against people who try and cause trouble on the BB? Whose one and only purpose here is chaos.
    I call it keeping the rules, which some christians join here and think rules and laws are not for them.
    By the way I am a conserative christian, who beleives scripture, I like mine untwisted, thank you very much, and my posts are not deleted and edited.

    POSTING RULES:

    This is a private Baptist board. BaptistBoard.com is run by a group of Administrators and Moderators who have volunteered to help out with the site. In addition to the User Agreement (see below), topics or posts which do not follow these guidelines face the risk of being edited or deleted altogether.

    1. Be aware of forum Categories. We offer a wide range of forums. Most are for BAPTISTS only, to post opinions, views, beliefs and ideas. We also have a few forums for BAPTISTS and all other CHRISTIANS, with pertinent topics that relate to everyone.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    These are the rules set up by our Webmaster.

    Why? Because most Christians get their "feathers" ruffled when their salvation is questioned.....and questioning salvation is against BB rules.

    ......
    </font>[/QUOTE]My understanding of the term "baptistic" has been quite different than that. It would be one who holds to traditional Baptist beliefs, that distinguish Baptists as a broad group from other broad groups.
    These beliefs or distinctives are often summarized in various acrostics and consist of items such as believer's baptism by immersion, priesthood of the believer, a congregational form of church government, only two ordinances (not sacraments - and I realize some Baptists would add foot-washing), etc.
    How this is carried out in being baptistic rather than Baptist could occur in a multitude of ways.
    For example, being a member of a Baptist church but living where there is not another one to join.
    Or being a member of a Baptist church but living where the only one to join is not acceptable to you. Or attending a church which does not have "Baptist" on the sign but holds to Baptist principles other than not having a formal membership list. Or being housebound due to illness for an extended time.
    Or being a mission pastor with "Baptist" on the door but the only ones that come are you and your family.
    Or many other scenarios that come to mind.

    I guess my practical application of "baptistic" is a Baptist who is hindered Providentially or otherwise from full membership and participation in a Baptist church as we traditionally think of it. And in many of such scenarios, the person is strongly in God's will, such as the mission pastor.

    Karen, just the other day I looked up the definition of baptistic and posted it in another forum. When people use baptistic to mean those who holds to traditional baptist beliefs they are using the word wrong. The actual meaning of the word is simply one who believes in baptism. Which can be anyone from basically any denomination who believe in baptism.

    This reminds me of this book I saw at the Jewish Temple one day called "The Jewish Book of Why?"

    Only difference is, best I can tell, is this person's persecution is all in his mind whereas the Jews have truly suffered a lot.

    Life is filled with, "Why?

    Any man who preaches the word has probably asked that question. Why do people not want to get serious about walking with God? Why do they think it is the pastor's job to be a bold witness while they sit and watch? Or why do they want the pastor to visit people when they have a game of golf and are retired? Why is that they want to pay the pastor less than they make each year? Why do they even come to church is all they want to do is warm the pew and not do anything during the week? Why do so many not know what they believe.

    I am very new here, so I have no answers. Such a fact has never led me to keep quiet [​IMG] I will make a few assumptions on what I have seen to date. I assume that the main question here is whether certain topics are "allowed" to be discussed. What I have seen-most everything is. It is not the topic that seems to be the problem, but how it is handled. I could be wrong, but that has been my observations. And if that is true, that is good. We as Christians need not be hateful to one another. How we must make our Father cry. You know how it is when your children do not get along-what grief is caused. My why would be, why can a person not state their opinion and then leave it be? I think it is great to see the variety of opinions. And such has often made me dig deeper into an understanding of my own beliefs. I see this as healthy. But going over something and over it and over it-that just is not cool. But that is my opinion. And as I said, I have no answers.
