  1. In the context of that verse he was talking about those that still preach circumcision. "Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing." Galatians 5:2 . He meant those that circumcise themselves and thus ignore the sacrifice that Christ has made for us. And in the next verse he urges those that do circumcise themselves to do the whole law. Gal 5:3 "For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law" So when he says that those who trouble you should mutilate themselves he is talking to people who ignore the sacrifice of Christ and wishes them to mutilate themselves, because if they ignore the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, they do not benefit from it and they should follow the whole law.
  2. Makes it easier to identify who they really are then. Trust me I've had my fair share of any SJW nonsense thats currently out there. The best method really is to calmly take apart their arguments and false teachings so that everyone can see how wrong they are. If you quote scripture and discussed and argued and pointed out false teachings and doctrine in the holy spirit and with the Strength and Love of God inside you, you can be sure that you have done nothing wrong before The Father. Even if some people mock or criticise you and try to offend you or call you names, you have done your part and abided by His will. You can be strict and upfront but even a strict father only does so for the love of his children so that they might learn. Anger is used by the desperate but for those that trust in The Lord and KNOW that they are on His side and that they are doing His will they will feel confident and at peace. Paul was slandered by some corinthians and he took his stand and wrote his letter. Just as he did we should also rebuke those that spread false doctrine or slander us in a strict and loving manner.
  3. There is no need for anger, you can identify and call out false teachings and doctrines whilst staying calm. Maybe if there was less anger and provoking, there wouldnt be that many deleted threads now also those who would teach false doctrine would be exposed to everyone.
  4. From my experience, being part of a handful of forums myself, there is always the same pattern no matter what the site is about. Often there is a certain amount of users that have made it their personal mission to start a small war with moderation and the admins. The reasons can vary from "I or others get deliberatly censored" to "some mods are corrupt" or even straight up deny the ToS and try to find loopholes. (Not saying this all happens on here, thats just including my experience from other sites) There is always a certain percentage of users that are unhappy with how things are handled because they would like the moderation to be done in their favour. Almost all the time it has to do with pride and I can only agree with ayin Maybe it is good to remember and to remind others that we are guests on this site, and that we should behave like guests. I've seen this all before and to be honest it gets tiring over time. It is entitlement that leads to most of these problems. I appreciate the work of the mods in keeping this forum as clean as possible and find it very inappropiate from some users to straight post about their problems with moderation in a public thread rather than to dm a mod. And if some think that wont change anything, well there are still other sites they can go to if they arent satisfied with how things are handled.
  5. I feel like some people forget this so often, they lose themselves in some self righteous debate and do everything to prove themselves right in the pursuit of telling "their truth". Why cant people have a discussion with someone and refrain from personal attacks? If I notice that someone is starting to get very emotional and provocative, I just dont continue. Im glad that there are mods that clean up threads. Its not doing anyone a favour when there are threads filled with name calling and insults.
  6. Since you have been involved in the thread that has been deleted and are clearly upset about how moderation and reports are handled I think I can see where you are coming from.
  7. If anyone has a problem with how moderation is handled on here it clearly states in the ToS to dm a mod and discuss this privately, and if even that doesnt satisfy, theres still tons of other Christian Forums out there.
  8. I wasnt aware of that, I mean if you confront false doctrine in the proper manner you shouldnt be reported for that. Sounds like something you should discuss with the mods.
  9. Not sure what that has to do with the ToS of this board but that sounds like a good topic for a new thread I would like to read
  10. Debate the subject, not the person. It is possible to disagree about a doctrine or subject under discussion without insulting the person with whom you are debating. Also remember that the fact that a person disagrees with you does not mean they are attacking you as a person. Respect each other in the love of God! This is the main reason that threads get stopped, shut down, and even deleted! We also reserve the right to remove any member from any thread for any of these violations. Users that cannot respect others will be banned. (Lev. 19:18) That describes it pretty well
  11. as long as it stays on topic and doesnt include personal attacks I wouldnt deem it as fighting either
  12. Indeed, that is why we should always watch out for deception and half truths.
