    Here is a short list of what never changes (imo) about the BB. This list starts with threads that really never seem to change the perspective of anyone, and eventually are turned off by the moderators or die from no longer folks desire to contend.

    Perhaps you have other items to add to the list?

    Here are some that I came up with to start:
    1) Threads about intoxicants which change no ones mind

    2) Threads about Cal and Arm which change no ones mind

    3) Threads about morally frail or fallen which change no ones mind

    4) Threads about politics which change no ones mind

    5) Threads about covenant versus dispensation which changes no ones mind

    6) Threads about how a person is redeemed which changes no ones mind

    7) Threads about versions of the Scriptures which changes no ones mind

    8) Threads about threads in which changes no ones mind.:type:

    9) threads where someone quotes a full post, only to make a very small comment which would have been just as effective or ineffective without a quote at all.

    Used to have some real knock down, drag out fights about the evils of rock music. I'm really glad that's over with.

    Because some posts are 40, 50 or even 60 lines long -
    Just quote the portion you are answering.

    Peoples minds have already been changed as the truth is presented. God's word does not return to Him void.

    1 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    Icon,
    I'm wondering how the full quote added to what you wanted to say.

    You have to be careful of those things. They lead to dancing.

    Uh no, I was talking about the Calvinists who have come to this board and declared their purpose is to proselytize "Arminians".
