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.

  • The practice of deleting posts that contain the word of God in them.

    Does Revelation 22:19 teach that their part is taken out of the holy city and the book of life?

    Are they taking away from the word of God?

    I will not answer this question myself lest my answer be deleted.

    But I think that my opinion on the matter should be quite clear: that I believe that when messages contain the word of God, for someone to delete them is to commit a grievous sin in the sight of the Lord.

    Is there cleansing and forgiveness for such a sin?

    Perhaps only if the thing that was deleted can be restored and is restored by the one who deleted it.

    If it cannot be restored, then there is definite condemnation there in my pov; but if the person humbles himself/ herself in the sight of the Lord, tearing his/ her heart and not his/her garments; if they come to Him with a contrite heart and turn their laughter into mourning and their joy into heaviness: if they cleanse their hands and purify their hearts: perhaps the Lord will hear from heaven and forgive them of their iniquity.

    There was a king in Jeremiah's day who hardened his heart and burned in the fire the prophecy that Jeremiah wrote. God told Jeremiah to rewrite the prophecy in another scroll; and many things were added over and above the original prophecy. But the king who hardened his heart and did this was judged severely by the Lord God. He never saw the second scroll; but you can be sure that it condemned him.

    "Today, if you will hear His voice, harden not your heart, as in the provocation."

    The warning of Revelation 22:19 is directed against some groups who would change scriptures, or simply write their own, to support their own beliefs. Most of those groups were gnostics. At the time of the writing of the Revelation it was a single book and the warning was against those who would change its wording to give it a different meaning.

    So I'm sure we're okay with deleting posts on the internet.

      Free speech aside, if someone posts what those in power feels misrepresent their holy scriptures, there will be consequences. Get used to it, some believers in power want to bring this practice to government.

          They are not believers if they want to take away the right of the people to freedom of speech. "I believed and therefore I have spoken." It is against the faith itself to deny the people their 1st Amendment rights. Those who would take them away are of the Antichrist government and agenda.

          The Holy Spirit is certainly able to raise up a teacher to be able to refute doctrine that isn't truly sound. Taking away freedom of speech isn't the answer.

          Even if someone preaches what you believe is false doctrine, the answer is to refute it with what is sound. The Holy Spirit is certainly able, through His people, and with use of the Holy Scriptures, to refute false doctrine when it shows up.

            It is an ungodly thing that certain righteous actions are punished such as saying to someone, "Shame on you!" when it is perfectly appropriate for them to be ashamed of themselves.

            Christians cannot truly be salt (a preserving agent) in such an environment.

              There will always be someone telling believers that their faith is false. It becomes sport for agnostics to watch.

                  How then was Jesus (though not a Christian an unknown term before Pentecost, nor by definition after 300 a.d.),

                  "salt", among the scribes and pharisees who not only opposed Him, but sought to kill Him ?
