What this blog is:
1. A place for me to put Bible study notes, to relate current events to the Bible, to discuss theological and religious concepts, for readers to comment on these items and generate more ideas for more threads.
2. A place to explain the Church of God theology without reservation, to discuss similarities and differences between it and mainstream Christian ideas, to discuss differences between various branches of the COG and explain the rationale behind the various ideas (hopefully, from the Bible).
3. Somewhere to have civil, rational discussions and debates that will hopefully more fully shine the light on the truth.
4. Somewhere to glorify God. References to God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit must be capitalized as a sign of respect (the latter, not because the Holy Spirit is a person, but it is the force of God and it is a proper name for that force).
What this blog is NOT:
1. This blog is not a place to bash Herbert W. Armstrong, Garner Ted Armstrong or the Worldwide Church of God (past or present). It is not a place to bash Ambassador College or Ambassador University. There are lots of places on the Internet for this. If that is why you are here, I suggest you go to one of those other places. Try a search engine to find one.
2. Likewise, this is not a place to idolize HWA, GTA, etc. I’m sure you can find somewhere to do that as well. While comparisons to certain Scripture passages are reasonable, please recall that their names are not in the Bible.
3. This is not a place to bash mainstream Christianity. That doesn’t mean you cannot call a pagan practice a pagan practice, but please keep it civil. Also, be conscientious of that fine line of “material that promotes hatred toward groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity is not allowed on Blogger.”
4. This is not a place to bash each other. Religious arguments can be quite heated at times, but remember we are discussing ideas, not each other.
This is my blog. I will delete posts and comments if they get out of hand. I will change permissions if I must. If required, I will report you to whomever appropriate. I make the rules. Furthermore, I won’t apologize for it. If you don’t like it, you can start your own blog.
With all of the heavy stuff out of the way, we can still have fun, we can learn something and hopefully we can expand upon our knowledge of the Great God we serve.
