While a Christian forum can certainly interact with people who sincerely want to learn about Christ and His truth, it should not be a forum in which anti-Christian and unChristian doctrine is espoused and propogated. Moreover, while there are diverse Christian views on secondary, non-core doctrines such as speaking in tongues, Calvinism, method of baptism, and eschatology, the core doctrines as revealed in Scripture should be upheld, not undermined herein. If you doubt or dispute the Word of God and Scripture, this not the place for your propaganda; feel free to go to the atheist or mysticism forums for such unChristian endeavors. If you don't believe in the Apostles Creed or Nicean Creed, this is not the place to try to spread your disbelief. This forum exists to exalt Jesus and His Truth as revealed in the Bible. The doctrines of demons are not welcomed here. This is a Christian forum. To those who are sincerely seeking to know and learn more about Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible, feel free to stay and dialogue with Christians here.

No. Joke or not, anyone who reads and believes the Bible will know that Jesus says that no man knows the date or time of His return. People who disbelieve the Bible and Jesus' words are tossed about by every lie and gimmick.

Perhaps you could lobby for a 'fundamentalist christian subforum' since the 'bar of what is acceptable christian doctrine' has been set pretty high by you.When the methodists wouldn't even 'make the cut' as you've outlined it,you're getting pretty restrictive.

Well, when people on here (not anyone in specific) stop interjecting religion into topics and the Politics and Other Controversies threads, or telling people that they'll pray for them (usually to someone who doesn't follow the book) I'm sure that you'll stop seeing people do drive-by posts of that nature.

Certainly, the United Methodist doctrine as espoused in its current official UMC creed is both Scriptural and consistent with the historic, apostolic Christian faith. In fact, Methodists affirm the Apostles' Creed each Sunday. Moreover, one cannot join a Methodist church or be baptized without at least verbally affirming the Truth of Jesus as God, Savior, Lord and the historic creeds of the Church. Just because there may be individual Methodists who are not believers does not mean the official church doctrine is so tainted. Methodists are not the only denomination with individual heretics and unbelievers in their midst.

Well I thought the methodists would fail your 'method of baptism' standard.I don't feel the methodists to be heretics,but I don't seem to 'set the bar' as high as you do either

As I said above, method of baptism is not a core issue. It's a secondary issue that can be debated among Christians. Who Jesus IS and the primacy of His Word and Truth as stated in the Bible are core issues that determine whether one is a Christian at all.
