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.

  • I have been invited to teach in a nudist camp, should I?

    most nudist camps in Michigan are filled with over weight grand parents. So, there is very little chance of lust, but a big chance one might want to gouge their eyes out.

      I wonder If I could send Isaiah instead. It would be a stretch of Paul's becoming all things to all peoples. Most people in those camps are way overweight, I would be more concerned about tearing my eyes out. :-)

            Absolutely. Teach on modesty.

              I request that they wear clothes which they did. They do not consider nudity to be immodest.

              I started with Mark 14:51-52New International Version (NIV)


              51 A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, 52 he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.

              And, in my talk, I reviewed the Resurrection Passages, ending with I Cor 15
              Deuteronomy 6:4. Hear, O Israel: The LORD [Jehovah] your God [Elohim] is one LORD [Jehovah].

                You live in the USA and are an adult so its up to you. "Abstain from all appearance of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:22 or just do the gouge thing.
                All men see God in creation but suppress the evidence in sin. Good apologists for the Christian faith always remember that. As you prepare to defend the faith, study the truths of the faith and pray that minds will receive them. And Have Fun!

                  If you do go, i would recommend in the least you are clothed. Lol. I wouldn't do it but my feeling is that these people probably need to hear the gospel. I would recommend not making their nudity part of the message.

                      If a nudist camp, why not a porn shop. . .
                      or a brothel. . .THEY need the gospel too!

                      I wouldn't go to any of those places. But of course it remains between you and God.

                      Or better yet, most of those folks can be seen at your local 7-11 convenience store.

                      God's Word (Scripture) will convince me. YOUR argument is your own.

                      I want to be so full of Jesus that if a mosquito bites me, he will fly away singing 'there's power in the blood. . .' (author unknown)

                        They wore clothes. I am now being re-invited to teach, preach a series on who the real Historical Jesus is. Keep it in your prayers.

                          Maybe you could preach a sermon on putting your fat folds back in your highwater pants. That might go over well....

                            I once was invited to dinner by someone to tell him about Jesus. I only later learn that He own porn stores when He was closing them because He committed his life to Jesus.

                            There are ministries of women to women traped in the sex trades. They were called there, I am not. Besides there is a big difference between a brothel and nudist camp.
