House Rules

HOUSE RULES: 

All guests and members are expected to comply with our House RulesThese are meant to make our discussions and debates fruitful.  We hope they will have your approval and support.

  1. BASIC RULE:  Matthew 22:37-39:  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the great and first commandment.  And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  [English Standard Version]
  2. All guests and members alike are expected to behave towards others with Christian charity and respect.  So, no profanity or blasphemy, please,  and no “flaming” whether personal or based on race, gender, religion, national origin or identity, or the like.
  3. This website, including all blogs and forums, is focused on Christian fellowship for confessing Christians who are in agreement with the Jerusalem Declaration.
  4. Multiple identities or memberships are also unacceptable.  One person – one membership.
  5. And no spam, please.
  6. Signature lines in comments and forum entries are restricted to the user’s name and title.  So, no advertising on signature lines, please.
  7. Likewise, please restrict casual chit-chat to the Coffee Room forum.
  8. All the content of this website (including all blogs and forums) is subject to copyright and privacy laws.  Members can certainly link to blog posts but copying and pasting anyone’s comments (in blogs or forums) without their specific permission is not allowed.

Comments are moderated and are posted at the discretion of the moderator.  If the House Rules are broken, comments will have to be deleted and, in very rare cases we hope, a membership may be forfeit.  We do expect comments to be relevant to the subject under discussion and we will have to refuse comments which are nor relevant or are too preoccupied with past grievances.
