    Hello. I hope you do not think I am being rude by being new and already adding topics, but by question to you is how can i meet other Christian for friendship and maybe down the line (a long line) dating. What is acceptable? Please do not be too harsh. I have never dated anyone before, and I would like to say I find this website brillant. [​IMG] [​IMG] :D

    Welcome to the Baptist Board!


    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.
    2. Show grace to the other posters. When someone disagrees with you, discuss it; but be slow to offend, and eager to get into the Word and find the answers. Remember, when discussing passionate issues, it is easy to go too far and offend. Further, if we are "earnestly contending for the faith" it would be unrealistic not to expect at times to be misunderstood or even ridiculed. But please note that your words can sometimes be harsh if used in the wrong way. The anger of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
    3. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. The board has an edit button enabled. We encourage you to use it and edit your own words. Moderators and Administrators will be visibly proactive in dealing with potentially offensive situations. Posts of a violent or threatening nature, either implicitly or explicitly, will be deleted, and the poster's membership revoked. We encourage personal problems with other members be resolved privately via email or personal messaging.
    4. No trolling. Trolling consists of provoking large volumes of responses by posting absurdities, deliberately offensive insults, etc.
    5. No spamming. Don't flood the board with commercial posts, irrelevant or otherwise useless material.
    6. No solicitation or advertising of any kind. Our message boards are for discussions, not to sell goods or services. If you would like to advertise, please contact us for an advertising package.
    7. Use descriptive subject lines. This makes it easier for people to see what your post is about. Do not use another member's screen names in topic titles.
    8. Post in the right forum. Keep posts on-topic, relative to the forum it's posted in.
    9. Respect the privacy of others. Do not post phone numbers, home addresses, pictures, etc., without permission.
    10. Each person may only have one account. People using multiple accounts may be banned.
    12. Limit image size. Any image used in a post may not exceed the size of the BB logo at the top of the homepage.
    13. No cross posting. Do not post the same message to more than one forum.

    Note: We reserve the right to remove any posts without notice to the author or those who have replied. We reserve the right to suspend the posting privileges of any registered member without notice.

    Unbelievers visit this site as well and when they see anger toward others in the Body of Christ they immediately pass a bad judgment on us as a whole. Please be sensitive to this issue. Golden Rule - 'Post unto others as you would have them post unto you'

    tony Campolo, I think, did a sermon on this. Never heard it, but the summary sounds good. check his website, tonycampolo.org. I think you can hear it at the site.
    The best way to meet Christian folk is to do good works-work in charities, mission groups, etc. You should meet someone there who puts their faith in practice, which is something you'll be looking for in a spouse.
    You know, you can meet the same person at a church that you could meet at a bar. But if you meet at church (or a church organization), you are more likely to approach the relationship with your best.
    I met my wife at church, by the way. Good luck to you.
