    Hi everyone,

    In order to enforce our Christian only forums we ask that all members select their faith here: https://www.christianityboard.com/account/personal-details

    After you have chosen your faith it can take up to one hour to activate your access to the Christian only forums if you have chosen a Christian faith. Those that are not Christians will be limited in the areas that they can post.

    This will go a long way in relieving some of the discord. Now we just have to be diligent in our observations in what's being posted.

    Question: Will those who are confined to nonbeliever areas be labeled as nonbelievers?

    I think they should.

    This is interesting. If Jesus Christ actually came back as a man and joined this site, what faith do you think he would claim to be? Jesus was never a Christian.

    Adam and Moses and Job were also never Christians since they knew nothing about a man named Jesus Christ. So would you also confine those people to a non Christian forum and treat them like unbelievers?

    If they were exposed to him they would believe.

    It is just an easy term to use that all of us can understand....
    For those who believe in the saving grace and the redemption through the cross for mankind , through the blood shed of Jesus Christ the Last and only perfect Lamb to die as a sacrifice for sin.

    We know that Abraham ,Moses, and all the rest were not '
    called' Christians ...but they lived by faith and promise of the salvation to come. Even King David too had the prophetical anointing and 'saw' into the NT , as shown in the Psalms...Isaiah also prophesied the same....so their hearts if not by name, where indeed " Christlike" from the beginning. God looks upon the HEARTS. He looks for His reflection ..which they all had.
    Just saying.....

    Were those bible characters exposed to God?
    Were they saved without knowing or believing in a man named Jesus?
    Does Christianity teach that Jesus IS God?
    Did Jesus say to worship him or to worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth?
    Where in the bible does it say you must be a Christian or have a Christian label on you before you are allowed to join Christian conversations?

    "You strain out a gnat but you swallow a camel."

    The thing being..when we join a site..we are all subject to the rules of the one who started the site.
    .....so "them's the rules' ..arguing wont change one thing.

    I don't believe there's anything stopping you from starting your own thread and holding your own conversations.

    You mean like this?

    1 Corinthians 10

    1 Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea,
    2 all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea,
    3 all ate the same spiritual food,
    4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.

    Hello Helen and anyone else reading this,
    Why do you need an "easy term" to understand?
    People who follow a false Christ still call themselves Christians and that is only one reason I no longer call myself a Christian.
    Refusing to wear a "Christian" label however does not mean one does not live by faith.
    I sincerely doubt that "God" would call himself "Christian" either.
    God might look on Hearts but obviously Christians do not. They do not reflect Christ and his love for the world at all. They look for labels so they can place people in their "little boxes" much like those Jews in the bible who were prejudiced against the Gentiles.

    Believers are supposed to have put on the "new man" not a worldly religious label. "Christian" is a worldly religious label and nothing more. The same label is worn by believers and unbelievers alike whether they follow a false Christ or not.
    Being Christian does not guarantee you anything. Matt 7:21-22 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Col 3:10-11 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

    Shame on all the Christians who want to separate themselves from everyone else when scripture clearly says CHRIST IS ALL AND IN ALL regardless of their labels.

    It is religious prejudice which is no better than wordly prejudice. They might as well claim to be "white" and reject everyone they perceive to be "black" from their little "bless me clubs". It is definitely not an action which encourages non Christians to become Christian.
    Shame on the lot of you.
    If you judge people unworthy to join your little conversations and treat them as unbelievers simply because they see things differently and don't wear a Christian label, according to scripture your own God will judge you in the same way. How would you like to be left out of his family?
    Matt 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    Light has no need to separate itself from darkness since darkness automatically "flees" from Light anyway. Darkness simply cannot remain in the presence of Light and remain darkness. It is simply impossible.
    Light embraces darkness in order to turn it onto Light. Light never rejects darkness.
