An important note about this forum
This is a Christian forum, and, as such, we want to glorify God and provide sound advice based upon God’s word. Our main purpose is to show unbelievers how to be saved and to edify other Christians and help increase their faith.
Confusion brings division, so as Christians, although we may have differing opinions, we should all agree on the basic Christian doctrines, especially the ones concerning sin and the need for salvation. Consequently, in the future, anyone who has “way out” interpretations of the Bible will be able to visit the forum but will not be allowed to post anything (questions or answers).
I based my decision on the following verses, among others:
-- 1 Corinthians 1:10: "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
-- Romans 16:17: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them."
