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.

  • KJVOism......is it really "go to God" or is it really "come to me"?

    KJVOist would have you/us believe that we should go to God for understanding of the Scriptures.

    However, they MIX these types of comments with the very real demand that those who "go to God" believe just like they believe or rather "come to me" to make sure what you/us "get from God" is correct.

    Its the old "a vote for me, is a vote for God" mentality of most any leader seeking to be a mediator.

    KJV promoters....

    Do you really want me to listen to God or do you really want me to listen to you?

    My goal is not to make someone like me. I simply want others to do their own work and really make their decisions instead of following the blind who follow the blind. Be informed so you can make an informed decision.

    I don't see that from KJVOist. I really don't. In fact, I don't see such for most anyone anymore. Everything seems to revolve around individual construction.

    We should go to God, Jesus told us in Scripture that the Holy Spirit (God) will guide you...

    JOHN 16:13...However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

      If God is to help our understanding in such a manner, then why must we funnel what we seek from God through the KJV? or the preachers of KJVOism?

        You don't have to read a KJV. God can lead you to the Truth through any good Bible version.

          There is no way any scholar can make any informed decisions about manuscripts without first having been trained by men to evaluate those manuscripts in what those men considered variously "the proper way." There is no need for all of that effort. Just read the Bible and believe it and God will honor that.
          I am not a NPB-Onlyist (No Perfect Bible Onlyist), nor a NA/UBS-Onlyist. Marke

          If this book be not infallible, where shall we find infallibility? We have given up the Pope, for he has blundered often and terribly; but we shall not set up instead of him a horde of little popelings fresh from college. C. H. Spurgeon

          For that Revised Version I have but little care as a general rule, holding it to be by no means an improvement upon our common Authorized Version. C.H. Spurgeon

              Nonsense. You just don't want to know. Its not that difficult. Your exaggerating the difficulty.

              Nonsense. Does God honor mistakes?
