Forum & Symposium section

The Symposium Section
is for articles and essays in defense of the King James Bible, or articles and essays promoting sound Biblical doctrine. {This area of the site can be read by anyone, but only guest Bible teachers will be allowed to post articles, essays, etc. No discussion or debate will take place in the Symposium, although some articles “pro” or “con” may be allowed – depending on the particular topic.}.
The Forums Section
is for “discussion” of topics of interest to Christians. Information (essays, articles, etc.) in defense of God’s word in the English language, i.e. the King James Bible, is welcome. Open “discussion” of spiritual issues will be encouraged; but NOT at the price of sacrificing our “priorities”. Endless debates [Romans 1:29; 2Corinthians 12:20], and foolish and unlearned questions [2Timothy 2:23; Titus 3:9] will not be allowed in the “Bible Versions”, “Bible Studies”, or “Doctrine” Sections of the Forum.

Posting Rules

Disagreement on certain doctrines or Biblical issues cannot be avoided; but ridicule or abusive and obnoxious posting can be avoided, and will not be tolerated.
Genuine and honest questions are always welcome. The Forum should be a place where people seeking the truth are able to ask sincere questions and engage in sincere dialog. However, disruptive posting behavior from disrespectful individuals will not be tolerated. If a “guest” or a “member” wishes to discuss the Bible version issue, or if they wish to discuss doctrinal issues, they are expected to be respectful in the manner in which they do it. All “guests” and “members” are encouraged to engage in two-way communication -- one-way "shotgun posting" and sophistry will not be allowed.
Short quotes and Links to articles and essays are allowed. Posting whole articles, essays, etc. from someone other than a “guest” or “member” will not be allowed.
Bible correcting, which is calling the text of the King James Bible "in error" and posting "better" translations, is not permitted and will result in a ban. Asking questions about verses of the KJV and translations is okay. Correcting the Bible is not.
There is a community here. Posters that prove they are only here to be disruptive will not be allowed to continue posting. This is a private service and the forum administrators reserve the right to moderate as they see fit in order to maintain the community that has grown here.
Posters who abuse their posting privileges on this forum may be put into moderation, so that each post must be approved by a moderator.
Our primary purpose is to uphold the principles (priorities) that we declared in our opening statement. We shall seek a balance between open discussion and edifying content. Thank you for your cooperation.

AN OUTLINE OF WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE - SOUND DOCTRINE
