COMMENTS GUIDELINES

Great conversation and discussion aid learning and application. Please consider the following items when it comes to posting comments:

  • Add value to the discussion.
  • Refrain from using crude, profane or perverse language in expressing yourself; it’s neither classy nor godly.
  • Do not slander, talk bad about, or speak ill of any person, well-known or not. Such words and reputation will follow you all around the internet, and also to judgment.
  • Respect others’ theological views and beliefs even if you disagree, just as you want your views and beliefs to be respected.
  • If you disagree with a post or with another person’s comment, do it respectfully; no one likes to be condemned.
  • Stay on the topic of the specific post; for example, don’t hijack a post and turn it to a discussion about Jennifer Aniston’s latest hairdo.
  • Please don’t drop links to your own web pages; don’t self promote or advertise in your comments.
  • In all things, treat others as you would like to be treated, for this sums up all the laws of blog commenting.
