Specific Guidelines

    • Respectful discussion of differing viewpoints is encouraged, but arguments are not allowed (such as disrespectful words or personal attacks). (Romans 14:19)
    • This is a Christian website, but people of any faith or belief system may freely comment if discussing and asking questions about the Bible in a genuine open-minded and respectful manner and not merely promoting ones own beliefs or agenda.
    • It's ok to cite a source related to the Bible reading, but not allowed to market or promote one's products or services.
    • Privacy: Posting information about others is disallowed such as their full name or where they work or personal information. No one has a right to violate others' privacy. Posting your own contact information is also disallowed, such as a phone number, email, address, or website.
    • Part of being respectful of others is sharing equally and not trying to dominate others in the quantity of comments.
    • Comments shall be on topic. For example, if commenting on the Psalms 23 page the comment should be about Psalms 23.

Overall: Be careful with your tongue (the words we communicate to others)
