John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

I just wanted to say thanks and give a warm welcome to those who joined recently. I think we have "slimmed" down our membership slightly which had rid us of problem members. 

 

The group here at this moment are pretty respectful and civil. Also our Terms of Service has been updated. Please read our rules. Here they are as of 5/25/2018. Please beware that these terms may change, and it is our responsibility as members to know the rules and revisit them from time to time:

 

Christforums' Terms of Service:

The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only.

 

You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws.

 

All Content you submit or upload may be reviewed by staff members. All Content you submit or upload may be sent to third-party verification services (including, but not limited to, spam prevention services). Do not submit any Content that you consider to be private or confidential.

 

We reserve the rights to remove or modify any Content submitted for any reason without explanation. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We reserve the right to take action against any account with the Service at any time.

 

You are granting us with a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your Content in connection with the Service. You retain copyright over the Content.

 

These terms may be changed at any time without notice.

 

If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use this Service. If you wish to close your account, please contact us. Also, do not register if you do not agree with the rules below.

 

Requests to Delete User Profile or Threads:  

Your participation on the board is a tacit agreement that your posts will become public.  You are not required to post on Christforums but, if you do, your thoughts and opinions (and some identifying information) may become public.  Signatures are designed to preserve some public anonymity but some users decide to provide First and Last name.  You need to remember this when deciding to make your name public to the internet (along with your opinions).  Christforums will not delete your posts or threads you start.  You need to remember this.  It is part of prudence.  Your posts become part of a larger conversation where people may quote you and interact with your thoughts and we cannot be responsible for cleaning up your online activity on our forum.  Furthermore, it is not your right to simply remove whole threads where others participated because you either regret writing something or because your thoughts are now showing up on search engines because someone searched for your name.  In some cases we will "anonymize" your user profile for you to remove all identifying information but, if you decided to create a username that identified you or created a Signature that made you public we are not responsible for what shows up in search engines nor will we delete all threads that you are later embarrassed or concerned about.

 

Pause Before You Post:

This is something that everyone can benefit from. Before you send the latest jab, punch, tweak, etc into cyberspace, take a minute (or two, or five) to make sure that you are doing so in a spirit of Christian maturity. Study first, pray, post after.

 

Use Proper Grammar, Punctuation, and Capitalization:

If English is not your second language, then you are expected to show other board members the courtesy of properly punctuating and capitalizing your posts. It is commonplace on the web to disregard these rules but improper grammar does not demonstrate consideration toward others who are trying to understand what you communicate. Mistakes in grammar are understandable but willful sloth may result in posts being deleted if they are consistently sloppy.


Make sure of the medium as well as the message:

Godliness is founded on truth. A test of truth is its power to promote holiness according to our Savior's rule, "By their fruits ye shall know them" (Matthew 7:20). No opinion can be more pernicious or more absurd than that which brings truth and falsehood upon the same level. On the contrary, there is an inseparable connection between faith and practice, truth and duty; otherwise it would be of no consequence either to discover truth or to embrace it. While under the conviction of the above principle, it is necessary to make effective provision that all who are admitted as teachers be sound in the faith, there are truths and forms with respect to which men of good character and principles may differ. In all these it is the duty both of private Christians and societies to exercise mutual forbearance toward each other." Above all, operate with Paul's command, "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love" (Ephesians 4:2) well in mind.

 

Be Willing to Consider Other's thoughts, but do not be relative:

Continuing with the above does not mean the most important thing on the Board is whether we can all get along in a milquetoast tolerance where every opinion is as valid as every other one. We certainly do not espouse Pilate's dictum, "What is truth?" It is well documented that Calvin, Luther and others used harsh language at times. But it is also probably true that your internet post about the latest book is not of the same significance for the Church as Luther's Bondage of the Will or Calvin's Reply to Sodoleto.

 

General:

  1. Only one account per person is permitted.
  2. When registering, a valid email address has to be used.
  3. Christforums is about people, domain names or email in forum/login names are not allowed.

  6. Make sure you have read the parent article/post completely before posting a reply.
  7. Choose an appropriate subject line. Try to summarise the problem briefly in the subject, and elaborate in the message itself. Repeat the subject in the body if it will make things clearer.

  8. No useless posts. This includes: Thread bumping, useless one liners, Flamewars, Trolling and Spamming.

  2. No commercial advertising is permitted.
  3. Any posts deemed to be self promotion, advertising, or spam can and will be removed. NO SPAM - NO ADVERTISING eg. Posting and making excessive, inappropriate and unnecessary references to your products and websites is self promotion.

Guess that means I will have to learn how to change my ways, huh?
