    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

    That's what I mean. If you have access to the Ministry Forum, you must be a Watchman or some part of ministry. If the Watchmen don't know who each other are, how can a new member reach out to them for help?

    I am sure Steve, Mega will read it and George will be notified. It may even get reported?!? George is busy in his travels and is not here that often, only when he has free time.

    We used to know who the Watchmen were as they had their title. Not one has a title anymore. Ask any new member who the watchmen are and you will get an astounding "Whats a Watchmen?".

    I agree. If someone can join a local group and do their own personal studies, great. Yet, what about those who cannot? Where do they turn but here or another site? Not everyone has the luxury of growing up in a Christian household, or are currently in one. There are those who cannot get out of their house. You have kids with unbelieving parents, or spouses with an unbelieving spouse. There are also those who are just plain searching that would not know where to turn. There are a lot of reasons why people come here. If we are of Him, we need to be about His business.

    Everyone here loves Worthy. We just want back the Worthy that we knew. As you said, the only defense a member has is to stay clear of certain threads. By doing this, members may stick around and even enjoy themselves. Trouble is, the more false teaching runs rampart, the less threads there are to enjoy.

    I can honestly say that for the most part, they don't agree. Their only job is to allow the threads to continue without violating the TOS, even if it is garbage being posted. What I have seen changed drastically are a few things: Anti-Semitic threads are allowed when they were once shut down quickly RCC doctrine being taught and slammed when it once was not allowed Outrageous personal attacks back and forth over news and conflicting sides of an idea that once was never accepted Peoples salvation attacked because someone disagrees with someone's personal doctrine - never was allowed. What was allowed is the debate on the subject, not the person Out of hand conspiracy theories continuing because someone thought it was best to allow it, so a forum was created just for such debates and discussions - the focus was on Christ, not governments People would join in on bible lessons, now everyone has a lesson of their own. An unwritten rule I was informed of years ago was that only those in Ministry could teach, but this has been denied top down even though I know I was taught it - open door for any false teaching continues These are just a few off the top of my head. BrutalHeart said something inline with when a site begins, it is a great place to be, but when the word gets out, it becomes a zoo if allowed. Lately, the topics here are like a zoo with every animal speaking their own language and nobody understands each other as the link to the discussions have been replaced with self. The best thing that could happen here is if the focus returned toward scripture, salvation and discipleship, true discipleship.

    Please, don't turn this personal or it will loose it's purpose. Personal attacking is one of the problems with this site.
  8. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    Let's not make this personal. The problem is what is presently going on here and how far it has changed. What is the most popular thread on this site, the one that grows the quickest at an average of 46 posts a day? Is it Christ centered or just having fun? Is this a Christ centered site or a a site trying to be like Facebook? The difference is, with Facebook, you only hear from your friends unless you look around. Here, it is live for anyone and everyone to read.

    Have you noticed who those who teach and edify are? New members and false teachers, while those who can have found their threads they hang in most of the time, tired of repeating themselves. The problem is, this site, when welcomed questions, have been overrun with questions and nobody willing to pick up the gantlet to answer them. It's easy to condemn a thread like this in the name of protecting what once was while turning a blind eye to what it has become.

    With just two moderators, with little time to moderate, we can't expect anything else. The ministry has been hidden, except for the Servants. Nobody knows who the Watchmen are anymore unless you are part of their group. Why hide? I don't have the answer and the explanation given was lacking substance so it's not worth repeating. Anyone can call what they find online as news. Everything with a scent of conspiracy become relevant. Who knows what's next?
  11. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    I have tried that to no avail, and you are correct, it did turn south. I even spoke to individuals with the same results. People like to hear themselves talk even when they make no sense at all. They understand what they are talking about, but fail to put it into words for others to follow. What I see missing is the tool of reading what is being posted as if you have never read it before to ensure what you want to say is actually being said. It seems people like where they are and don't want to grow. Their claim that God sent them is all they need.
  12. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    What you say is all too true. New members do not use the search to see what has been said. To them, it is a hot new subject and they refuse to do the homework. Instead, they want others to do the work for them and report back. This does get very tiring. Yes, I can remember the civil discussions also, which is what I miss the most. Most of what we read here is far too judgmental. What you can see is "I'm Right, You're Wrong ... End of Story" Peoples salvation is questioned when someone does not agree with them on non-salvation issues. How to communicate properly is sorely lacking. Read the threads for proof.
  13. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    I would say that people are picking their battles instead of remaining where the enemy has the upper hand, not on purpose, but, still the same, they are allowed to overtake what was once a solid christian site. Those who leave are not turning from God. Those who have turned from God are coming here to take this site away from God. It's too bad this is not being stopped as there are very few true online sites that are His these days. That is where you find the falling away.
  14. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    Yes, and some do report them. I know this for a fact as I had been a moderator for a few years here, and since then, I continue to bring them to the attention of the mods. The problem is, like Shiloh stated, what used to be a moderated site with four or more moderators is now just Steve and Omegaman, both basically in the same timezone, where there is no 24/7 like it used to be. I can also state that the idea to allow certain threads to continue is so people can gain experience with pointing out the truth, but that has not gone as expected. When someone makes one or two statements that need correction, it is a lot easier then reams of posts full of bad doctrine where people do not even know where to begin, so they ignore it and the thread remains readable to everyone. At this moment, there are 32 members online and 142 guests. These guests are reading the good and the bad, and when nobody will try and correct certain members and their false teachings due to either the length of their teachings or the fact that they have been shown the truth more than people can remember with no resolve, it's like the site agrees with these posters as their teachings remain public

    Sigh....... Okay fine. If you all what this site to be a church where only certain beliefs are taught. Please lay out what these beliefs are. Then any post that disagrees or differs from those beliefs should be delete. Come on LadyKay ... a balance is needed, not an open door policy nor a strict lined belief system.
