What is Christian Discourse?
This is your go-to place for respectful online theological discussion. Feel free to pose Bible questions, spark theological discourse, and connect with people all over the world who are passionate about the Word.
Christian Discourse is a hub for biblical learning, growth, and community. Please keep your questions and comments respectful and polite. Treat others in this forum like you would treat your neighbor at church—don’t be afraid to voice your opinion, but do it with love and kindness.
This Is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion
Please treat others with the same love, courtesy, respect, and kindness that you would if you were having a conversation in a church. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized public discussion.
Improve the Discussion
Leave every thread better than you found it. With each new post, work to improve the quality of the discussion.
We care deeply about the topics discussed here. Be respectful about them and the people discussing them, even if you disagree.
Browse for a few minutes before you post a new thread to help us keep things tidy. You may find that someone has already started a thread about the same subject to which you can contribute. Use this forum’s tools to limit clutter—rather than commenting “+1” or “Amen,” use the “like” button. Rather than signing your posts, fill out your profile information and post an avatar.
Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree
You may wish to voice a contradictory opinion. That’s fine, but remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
- Ad hominem attacks
- Reacting to a post’s tone rather than responding to its content
If You See a Problem, Flag It
It’s everyone’s job to make this forum a healthy, happy place for discourse. When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. A reply consumes energy and draws more attention to the offending post. Just flag it. When enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by a moderator.
