    That's right Brother Info ... i'm not doing it ... for you or anyone ... in these Study Group Forums.

    If you want an explanation when moderated, stay in the Main Spirituality Forum, where i freely give them.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    This will probably get interesting, but it seems about as fair as it's going to get on the forum. Hopefully, it won't prove to be a time-suck for moderators.

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    The Study Group Forum Rules are still evolving, and we're gonna just go with it, until we get it right.

    I'm seeing now that it will be best for these forums to be moderated by the adherents of the path.

    This means, if an adherent of the path feels violated by your post in this area, it will be moved, with few if any questions being asked. I'm simply not knowledgeable or sensitive enough regarding the inner workings of each to make these calls on my own. Of course, i can make a determination if it appears disrespectful to me, but more often than not it will be the adherents of each path that lets me know some disrespect is within and needs to be moved.

    It seems that we're moving to a place where only those who are adherents of the path, seeking to become a sincere student of the path, have a high and/or growing respect for the path and wish to understand it better.

    If you have already demonstrated any disdain, objection, or otherwise negative views of the path, and are found posting in the same forum, your posts are going to be moved and you may lose access to ALL of the Study Group Forums.

    Many of you have shared in a multitude of discussions how you feel about some of the paths (almost loathing them and their adherents), and if that is the case ... please ... don't post in these forums, for you will be considered guilty of violating this rule no matter what you say ... for your previous positions precede your contributions.

    If you've had a change of heart, and sincerely respect the path and its adherents, make that clearly known or you'll be found in violation.

    Path Adherents : if you see something that is disrespectful of said path, report it, and i'll move it.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    peace

    I now realize that i just did this yesterday, but at the time i posted what i did, i didn't realize i was in the Christian Study forum until Clyde Coger responded and happily pointed that out. :lol: This is why i have not been back to respond to him. He started a thread with almost the exact same title and theme as Kemestry did yesterday which i was apart of in the spiritual section, so i just thought Clyde started his own as well in the spiritual section to try and prove that mary magdalene was not the wife of jesus as he was trying to do in kemestry's thread earlier the same day. But, really i didn't even post my own words, i just quoted a book that was taken out of the bible about the union between Magdalene and Jesus.

    But, now that i do realize i was in the study forum i will not return to that thread seeing as it was started only to prevent any challenge to Clyde's views on the matter.

    Thank You Brother Info ... it is easy to get the forums mixed up, we all gotta watch that, as i've been kicked out too ... :look:

    Nonetheless, those forums are there for the adherents and sincere students to have a place where they don't have to deal with all the haters of their path chiming in to "save them" or "correct them" or what have you. It's not necessarily about them preventing challenges, especially in this case, for Brother Clyde is quite active in the main spirituality / religion forum too ... obviously willing to take on all posters ... or so it seems.

    No ... everyone deserves some peace regarding their path, and that's what we're trying to deliver.

    The peace and the challenges ... we're trying to deliver it all ... both types of forums are here.

    I appreciate you letting me, him, and all know ... you meant no harm.

    Thank You! :grouphug:

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
