Purpose of the Study Groups Forums

63 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

The purpose of establishing the Study Group Forum was for senior members and administrators of Worthy Ministries to lead specific Bible studies. Recently there were Bible studies posted that denied the deity of Messiah and for this reason I have limited the starting of topics to Royal Members and those who are part of the ministry. Anyone may reply to these Bible studies.

Because we want to have open dialogue with even those who disagree with the leadership of Worthy Ministries, please post your threads in the appropriate forums, i.e. Controversial issues, Doctrinal Questions.

Your brother in Christ with much agape love,

George

Good job, George. I would also suggest pinning this where it doesn't get buried.

How does one become a Royal member? Is it by number of posts?

But what about us little people? I mean I love to have bible studies, even though I haven't posted any yet iv only been posting for a week now...

I am not a false teacher, I believe that Jesus is God, I am writing a book about how Jesus is God. I believe there will be a rapture & tribulation, 1000 yr. reign, Satan will be released, then he will be locked up for ever. For by grace have you been saved through faith, Not by works. I am not anti-Semitism, I love Jesus with all my heart, I want to be a pastor or an evangelist, I was saved when I was young and accepted Christ as my savior, and knew I was a sinner.

So ... can you rethink that Idea? because i would love to start topics on bible study

Thank you for listening...

Your brother in Christ,

Joel

Maybe those of us who aren't yet royal members but who have topics for a bible study can ask a royal member to conduct the study then we can just reply to that thread.

northdoc I don't know about the other forums but posts in fellowship hall aren't counted.

You get post counts in every forum except the Fellowship Hall. Chat does not count toward your post count.

Hello.

I am a new member as well. I joined some time back, but have had computer problems. My computer crashed and, well, that was that for awhile! I see that there are some new things like this bible study and I look forward to it. God Bless!

I am not at all sure that locking out those who are not Royal Members from posting in this forum is a good thing to do George. From the standpoint that God might want to work through some who are not Royal Members to lead Bible Studies.

I wonder if it might not be more in line with the freedom we all have to minister to one another in Christ to lock out a specific member who is starting Bible Studies that are out of line with the Word than to lock out a big group of members (who are not Royal Members) as a way to protect the forum from bad studies.

I mean do we discourage the sharing of the gospel by any Christian because a few share it in a way that puts people under the Law?

Do we keep most Christians from teaching others the things of God and limit such to those with Bible school training because some teach what is wrong?

This approach seems very much like that of the world in the way that governments make laws that limit our freedom in an effort to protect us from ourselves.

The Lord says that every one has a psalm or a song or a prophecy and that all should be given freedom to share with the church judging what is of God and what is not.

I am not at all certain that locking one's out is in line with the freedom to minister as God gives us through His Word.

i was just wondering.... :emot-hug: ......is it the number of posts that is more important or the quality of what is in the post? ive seen some peoples names come up in here quite a bit that seem to be...umm...not so christian like and they do not speak out of love. do those posts count toward their ROYAL MEMBERSHIP? if so i do not think that is fair to those who do speak with love and who give scripture to uplift and encourage their brothers and sisters. its just a thought. i was wondering and thought i would ask. :thumbsup:

The original post at the beginning of this thread, which George wrote, is out-dated and does not apply in regards to the "Royals". There is no such title as "Royal" any longer and post counts mean absolutely nothing, which is why we removed them from the side bar that identifies the member in each post. You and brother Carlos are right on with your point, which is something we corrected middle of last year. Post counts are no longer considered at all when someone is asked to join the ministry team as a Watchmen, Chat Admin or Moderator. They are selected by their fruit as the Spirit leads George and those involved in the ministry! :emot-hug:

Be Blessed,

Wayne

I have to disagree with this policy. God calls people to service not a post count or other people. A pastor / teacher is not elected.
