      No side is innocent. 90% of the threads made are 'seemingly' with the intent to stir debate. Not the good kind.

      There is an element of baiting, and also plenty of negative inference in wording.

      Anyway back to the OP - question time.

      Lammchen - Was this forum made with the intent of edification as the name suggests 'haven' for Christians; if so, how do we get to that?

      This IS a haven for Christians but it is open to all because we are to be a light to this world. If members show their dark side, then they are doing a disservice to everyone. The team cannot control all members and their posting style and we have been told repeatedly that members do not want an over-moderated site.

      We're working on having something new that I haven't really seen on other sites before and hopefully it will allow members to realize when they've gone overboard and correct their own mistakes posted here.

      Do you think that overmoderation is the fear and this bsically no moderation gives people a license to act badly?

      It was a haven for Christians, doesn't feel that way anymore.

      There is a large divide on these forums, and as time progresses it worsens. This is not only among Christians.

      Is there no moderation?

      People who act badly here have acted badly on other forums as well. The thing to stop that with everyone is to cease interacting with those people if you so desire. That is one great solution to many problems here. Too many people feel that they have to have the last word, the last jab, the last knife thrown. It's ridiculous.

      Of course it is still a haven for Christians. Since we have had 2 members now stating differently, I'm going to begin a discussion thread elsewhere because I really do not understand why you both have stated it.

      My husband and I have been married for 25 years and we dated for 6 years prior to that. We've known each other a lifetime!

When I visited a Pentecostal meeting because I had promised a friend that I would when their new buildinng was commpleted I was met with two attempts to convert me to Christ (the assumption being that because I am a Catholic I could not possibly know the Lord) and was firmly upbraded for callinng myself a Catholic instead of a ROMAN Catholic because (said the speaker) "we're Catholics not you" and I was also told that Jesus isn't in the bread and wine of communion. That was more than enough to convince me that I would not be much interested in visiting again an Assembly of God (now called Australian Christian Church) meeting.
      Oh my. Yes that's true. If we get a visitor who is not evangelic it is automatically assumed he/she isn't a christian. When they say but I am already saved it's: Let's say the sinner's prayer just to be sure.
      I can see how one would think: buh bye!

      I really don't like when people think that if you haven't said the sinner's prayer that you aren't saved. Prayers don't save; a Savior saves.
