So… I read this on the BB website regarding other denominations:
You have entered one of the hottest forums on the Baptist Board! I’m sure that just about everyone has heard the cliché that one does not talk about politics or religion in mixed company. This forum tends to demonstrate why.
As co-moderator of this forum, I tend to be rather light handed and often lurk only in the shadows. If I were too heavy handed, the forum would lose its purpose. Therefore some topics may degenerate rather quickly. It is my opinion that it would be unreasonable to think that the nature of the debates presented here would always remain civil, given the fact that we are all “earnestly contending for the faith.” I do ask, though, that all participants take a moment to read the posting rules of our site at this link: baptistboard.com/postingrules.html If you are a registered and logged in member, please feel free to report obvious violations by using the report post feature at the bottom of an offending post.
Having said that, I am posting this as a reminder to our participants. Christ told us in Matthew 5:14-16 that we are like the lights of a city on a hill. The world around us can view us from far off without our even knowing it. Perhaps nowhere is this more the case than on the internet. This board is read by hundreds of people a day, most of them non-members, many of them atheist or non-Christians. Our conduct and demeanor are the only Gospel that some of our lurkers may ever receive. With this in mind, it is our duty to conduct ourselves in such a way as to bring honor to our Savior.
All participants in this forum are Christian, though we hail from a variety of denominations. To find a member’s denominational affiliation, simply click the profile icon at the top of their post. This may help the reader better understand the poster’s position in a debate and the function can be used by even unregistered readers.
So dive in! The water’s choppy, sometimes cold, sometimes hot, rarely tepid, and full of piranha and sharks, but for all its faults, this forum is possibly the single most educational on the site and has proven to be an excellent training ground for aspiring apologists.
Your servant in Christ,
They speak one way, and act another. This tells me EVERYTHING I need to know about the moderators of THAT forum. I’ll just say that I think they can’t have all that much faith in their message if they just boot someone for no good reason. (Being Catholic is NOT a good reason to boot someone).
Maybe they don’t regard Catholicism as another denomination? Maybe they refuse to believe that Catholicism is the ORIGINAL denomination??? Their ignorance should be an embarrassment; especially after quoting Matthew 5:14-16.
What an un-enlightened bunch of people.
PS: It was REALLY hard not to do some serious name-calling in this post. Just so you know.
