Here are a few guidelines for use of the Comments.
- No Denomination Bashing. This reading group
practices the unity of the church that Jesus birthed. We come from many
different backgrounds and traditions - Catholic, Orthodox, Reformed, Mainline
Protestant, Pentecostal, Baptist, you name it. Some may not yet have become a
Christ-follower. Thus we do not engage in criticizing other denominations. Our
focus and unity is in Jesus Christ. This does not mean we can't have different
thoughts, only that we can not beat each other up with how we think
- A Loving Spirit. You may not agree with everyone's
opinion you see in the Comments. Feel free to disagree in love and state your
reasons. This way we can learn from each other. But if your motive is to set
everyone straight, please don't bother. Judgmental comments are not welcome,
and posters who don't demonstrate a loving spirit will be removed.
- Removing Comments. We reserve the right to remove
any comment that we don't see as germane to the subject matter.
- Stay On Topic. It's important not to wander
off-topic in your comments. If your comment isn't on the topic of the Bible
text we're reading, please "hold that thought." This isn't a "Christian chat
area" but a focused Bible reading.
- Be Discrete. Share carefully, realizing that many
other people will be reading. Don't share things that are too personal. Please
don't share your eMail address openly in your comments postings, since that
will get you picked up by spambots and added to a spam list. If you have a
website or blog you can use that name when making a comment.
- No Advertising. This is not a place for you to
put personal ads, business ads, or any ads for that matter.
