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, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org 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.

  • Christian persecution worldwide.

    Christian persecution worldwide is at an unprecedented level for centuries.

    The question is, why would the UK Government want to find out how to help when so many are already telling them ways?

    The Christian church from its earliest days has shown a penchant for persecution and suffering. Dying for the faith, and the blood of Christians being the seed of the Church, etc. Why the protestation?

    If it's all as good as so many of you say it is up there, you should be queuing up to go.
    On the evidence:

    If there were no Patriarchs, no Exodus, no conquest of Canaan, no united monarchy under David and Solomon. Can the early biblical Israel described in the books of Moses, Judges, Joshua, and Samuel, ever have existed at all?

      Not to mention that the Christian religion has its own history of engaging in persecution.

        Christ warns that those who have faith in Him will be persecuted on account of Him, so it sounds like He was talking about people like you.

        Well its a secular section of the forum. You are implying that human rights and persecution are ok for Christians.

        However, yes you are right if this is the last days, we should expect the tribulation.

          So I take it you can't get enough of seeing Christians suffering and being slaughtered?

            How can anything be at an unprecedented level for centuries?

            Sorry. It's a fact that Christians have been and are being persecuted; the same applies to Muslims and Jews. But then, y'all have been persecuting each other at unprecedented levels for more than a millennium.
            The people whining about Democrats looking to the government to solve problems are the same ones who want the government to define marriage, criminalize abortion, slow/stop legal immigration, save farmers, create jobs, etc.

              I thought this was the raison d'ętre for some of you.

                That's not what I asked you. (And you're wrong, as usual.)

                  It's called "reaping what's been sown" - christians were the oppressors & persecutors for quite the time, now the chickens have come home to roost
                  Perception is awareness shaped by beliefs
                  Beliefs "control" perception

                  ..... Rewrite beliefs and you rewrite perceptions

                    The persecution of Christians is terrible.

                      I'm surprised one of these "people" haven't tried goading you into volunteer persecution and death.

                      Oh looky there, one already did. Such a pleasent group these euroliberals are.

                        All of this goes over the heads of the "tolerant" ones, such as yourself.

                              So I take it you have nothing to say about your religion's own track record of CAUSING suffering and slaughter?
