Board Rules: Basic Guidelines for Board Participation
(Rules are subject to change as needs or issues arise) - NEW Please Note the addition of new rules for quoting articles below - 3/8/13
This is Jesus Christ’s Church, not ours. Behave as though the Lord Jesus is In The Room – because HE Is. Above all, let the Light and Love of Christ Jesus be present in all your conversation here. Romans 13:10
We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture and that all things are to be judged in righteousness and by the rule of Scripture. We are grounded on the Foundation of The Word of God (the Holy Bible) and hold to the Fundamentals of the Faith (See our “Statement of Faith” on the Main Page
under the tab ‘About Us’ – ‘What We Believe’).
This place exists to glorify God - not to provide an open forum on Christianity or to operate as a debate hall. People are invited in and escorted out based on their behavior, sincerity, maturity and humility. Rude, obnoxious people won't be tolerated for long!
Over the years, WoP has become a sort of internet church - a place to gather, worship, exhort, learn and grow together with like-minded Bible-Believers, and sincere seekers. Please show the same decorum that you would at a church fellowship or get-together and you'll do just fine. Remember: as you progress and show yourself to be trustworthy, you'll gain more access and permissions throughout the site. We love to add new people to the list of "regulars" and look forward to becoming friends.
As a board dedicated to prophecy, we hold to a very literal interpretation of the Scriptures. Even with that stance, there are some issues we do not all agree on. Rapture timing is one such issue. We have debated and discussed at length various Pre-Millennial positions without agreement. We can agree that the timing of the rapture is NOT a salvation issue. (See article about Essentials and Non-Essentials
) We can also agree in love to disagree when entrenched in a particular position. Our general guideline is to hope for an early exit, and prepare spiritually/mentally/physically for a late one...
Please be aware that we do not tolerate false doctrine/teaching on this board. Around here, if the Bible says it, and the concept is backed up by the Whole of Scripture, then it's the Truth. Man-made religions and false doctrines are routinely destroyed here by shedding the Light of Scripture on them, particularly in the Expose Section
of this board. We also do not believe that there are new prophetic messages or ‘new revelation knowledge’ as the Bible has given all things in advance ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17
). We do Not believe in Universal Salvation nor Inter-Religious Unity. We also do not believe that the Church has Replaced Israel.Please Do:Abide by requests of the Admins and Moderators.
If a request is made by an Admin or Moderator for a member to change a particular behavior and this request is ignored, a clear Warning will be given. If that warning is ignored then a system of "Strikes" will be initiated. The first Strike will include being temporarily banned from posting for one week. The second strike will cause a two week temporary ban. The third strike will be a full ban from the forum altogether.
