There are a few things I’d like to ask for when it comes to commenting.

This blog is intended to be a free flowing, earnest conversational blog about topics and matters which impact our churches throughout the world. It is not a place for personal attacks, political jabs, or gripes about a specific worldview.

So, instead of doing a list of “Thou Shalts” here are some basic rules that will hopefully keep us on the straight and narrow.

  • The author of the blog reserves all rights to delete a comment for any reason he/she deems fit but will try to limit such actions to inappropriate comments, tragically off topic comments, trolls, ad hominems, and other such silly things that add nothing to a discussion but only seek to distract.
  • All commenters will be asked to provide a real email and real name (no pseudonyms like “preachymcpreacherson”) for validation of their comment.
  • Absolutely no profanity, personal attacks, racism, or name calling will be permitted. Let’s keep Ephesians 4:29-32 in practice.
  • As of now I will not require registration for commenting, but this is subject to change.
  • Please keep all comments on topic.
  • Zero tolerance policy for making a point about politics. It isn’t ______ fault something is happening in a church. I won’t talk about politics and will ask you fine people not to talk about it.

That is pretty much it, but I suspect I’ll be adding to the list.

Please note that all comments are personal property and may not be used in other media or taken from this site to be used maliciously against other people without the express written consent of the blog author and the posting individual. Thank you for your compliance with this. Please let me know if you have questions.
