Welcome to the Bible Versions Discussion Board, and thank you for taking the time to read these rules.
The purpose of the Bible Versions Discussion Board is to provide a friendly, informative, thought-provoking place where people can discuss issues related to Bible versions, translation, history and related issues. These rules are in place to help maintain that purpose. This board is primarily for Christians, but anyone can participate as long as the rules below are followed.
The Apostles', Nicene, Athanasian and Chalcedon Creeds are affirmed by the owner and moderators of the Bible Version Discussion Board. Agreement with these Creeds are not a requirement for participation on the Bible Version Discussion Board, and questions and discussions on the statements in the Creeds are welcome. However, be aware that if you are interested in opposing and debating these statements as they are commonly understood and accepted, the Bible Version Discussion Board is probably not the place for you, and your participation may be restricted at the discretion of the moderators.
Often debate forums shed more heat than light, especially when people are passionate about their beliefs. However, "the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves". The basic rules of this discussion board are summed up in 2 Timothy 2:24-25 and Galatians 5:22-23. Debate is allowed (and encouraged!) on this board, but not at the expense of those scripture passages. How you post is as important as what you post. As such:
Repeated failure to post in accordance with the above rules may result in the moderators editing posts, moving/deleting posts, warnings, and (in extreme cases) banning.
After you have read and comply with the above rules, Go to the Discussion Board!
