As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Rule 2: D iii

    Please recognize that moderators/manager/admin or volunteers do not speak officially on behalf of CARM when they express any religious, political or social view. The views stated by any moderator/manager/admin on any subject other than the logistics or rules of the boards are purely their opinions and do not represent CARM. When CARM states its official organizational position on any issue, it will be posted on the website, rather than through the use of the message boards.

    "Rule 24. Evangelism:

    Users that attempt to interfere with Christian evangelism will be suspended or directed to appropriate board. Please stick to the topic of the forum. Posters seeking to debate Evangelical Christians should take their discussions or questions to the appropriate forum. Atheists/Agnostics or those continuing to debate Evangelicals on the inappropriate forums, will be assigned to the ATH/AGN forums."

    Again, it includes all the Secular Forums, politics as well. If you are attacking the Conservative position with liberal arguments to Christians and conservatives, will be assigned as a Secular member. Since the majority of Evangelical Christians are attempting to reach posters through the political issues as well, such as homosexuality, abortions.

    Also be aware, referring to conservatives/Christians with the "racist," "homo phobe,"or "bi got" or "anti-gay" or "anti-homosexual" comments, insults for their political positions related to their Christian beliefs, including the "prejudice and ignorance" comments or accusations will result in infraction points and suspensions.
    "Rule 25. Freedom of Speech:

    Your freedom of speech here comes with the responsibility to speak decently within the parameters of the rules.
    In other words, by registering you are agreeing not to be vulgar, divisive, insulting, profane, etc. (read all the rules). It helps to try and treat others as you want to be treated. And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way," (Luke 6:31).
    You have NO unspoken right to speak in a perverted, offensive, profane, foul, or blasphemous manner. This is a Christian website and you may not post words in mockery of Christian beliefs, or terms offensive in descriptions of our Lord God. You may certainly challenge Christian teaching, but do so respectfully.
    There are many diverse opinions expressed on the CARM boards. But, CARM is not responsible for the opinions posted by anyone on the CARM discussion boards."

    Includes the offensive, divisive insults to Christian conservatives on the politics forums. Will be given infraction points and suspended should you insult conservatives/Christians rather than discuss the topics. This is a Christian website, if you want to promote liberal propaganda, take it elsewhere. Christians on this forum permitted their free ideas and opinions on social issues and will not have to tolerate insults, divisive comments from the more liberal posters. For those with questions, from the CARM Statement of Faith.

    Introduction" CARM is a conservative Christian Ministry based on the teachings of the Bible (66 books, excluding the Apocrypha).

    Regeneration: Regeneration is the work of God that is occurs with faith. This regeneration means the person is made a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17) and is then able to resist his sin and seek to increase in sanctification before the Lord. Those thus regenerated do not seek to abide in sin, though they do fall into it, but war against it and repent of sin before the Lord.

    Morality: Homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, cross dressing, trans-genderism, lying, bearing false witness, adultery, wife-swapping, pornography, fornication, coveting, etc., are all sinful practices, against scriptural revelation, are contrary to proper living, and are not acceptable to the CARM ministry as normal or approved behaviors. Still, we do not hate or persecute those who practice these things but pray for their deliverance and salvation and expose their sins and call them to repentance.

    Marriage: Marriage is between one man and one woman.

    Heresy: Any doctrine that deviates from the historical, orthodox, and biblical position of the Christian Church, throughout Church history, as judged from a Protestant perspective. There are heresies that are damnable (denying the Deity of Christ, denying Christ's physical resurrection, denying justification by grace through faith, etc.). There are heresies that are not damnable (advocating women pastors; practicing polygamy, divorce for convenience sake, etc.) There are also teachings within Christianity that are debatable whereas differences of opinion are not heresy (eating or not eating meat, worship on Saturday or Sunday, etc.) See Rom. 14:1-12.

    Living: Where possible, Christians are to live in peace with all men, suffering wrongs, false accusations, and misrepresentations with charity. However, Christians are free to defend themselves (Luke 22:36) and promote the truth of Christianity by correcting false teachings and refuting error (2 Tim. 2:25; 1 Pet. 3:15). They are free to use the political system and its laws in order to promote a more godly and moral society. Christians are to live in the world as examples of godliness and are not to participate in the sinful passions of the world.

      Spamming the forum, with repeated posts stating "homosexual marriage is becoming more popular" or "most people in favor of same sex marriage now" or any similar content appealing to polls and what is the trend being posted, will be considered "spamming" of propaganda if you continue to repeat the same over and over, will be deleted and given infractions. Our forums are for discussion and debate not for activists to use to spam propaganda....
      God Bless,
