Welcome to the Berean Nation, everyone!
This is a place that I want Christians everywhere to learn biblical answers to the tough questions that the Bible answers.
Having said that, I recognize that there are sometimes multiple ways to read what the Scriptures say, so I want this to be a place of civil discussion on what the Bible actually DOES say. It doesn’t mean we all have to agree on everything, that isn’t going to happen until the Lord comes back and shows us what the absolute answer is to our questions.
To that end, there are some rules that I will enforce.
- Keep the discussion civil and polite. I will not tolerate name calling.
- If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. Ibid.
- If you can’t agree, that’s okay. Agree instead to agreeably disagree. Life would be boring if we didn’t have variety.
If you can follow those three things, then please feel free to join in the discussion. And you should be able to defend your point of view, because not everyone will agree with you, and it’s okay if they have provocative questions for you on your views. After everything is said and done, I do want this community to be inclusive. If you have an opinion, you can discuss it safely here, even if I don’t agree.
If you cannot agree to these things, then please don’t participate. If you don’t like what this site is about or represents, then you are entitled to your opinion. You are NOT entitled to express it because YOU are not PAYING for it! Go start your own web community and grind your axe there. (I know a great hosting service! http://www.hostability.ca! Tell them I sent you!)
Now – let’s examine the Scriptures and see what they really say!
