Saints,I ran across this statement on another discussion forum but believe its a great truth we must consider: [b]"Our posts are on the internet for life!"[/b]May I add that our posts are being read by people from over 215 countries in the world and 1000's of unique visitors everyday. What a solemn thought that [b]all[/b] of our words will be brought into judgement and tested. I encourage those that haven't to review these forum topics:[b]Some notations regarding "This Forum"[/b]http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=19700&forum=13&13[b]MUST READ: SermonIndex Forum Disclaimer / Community Rules[/b]http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=14144&forum=13&19[b]MUST READ: How to make the most out of SermonIndex (SI)[/b]http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=14147&forum=13&5[b]A Word To End all Strife and Divisiveness on SI Forums[/b]http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=12335&forum=35&21[b]Testing all things on SermonIndex[/b]http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=21919&forum=35&8"The world is watching."

Yes, the eternity perspective and God.I had already made a mental note to review these rules regularly after a second reading gave me comfort. As I think about the points you make, two things come to mind that might help us.[u]Bumping this thread periodically[/u] (monthly?), so its spirit saturates us. There will always be new members and continued growth in Christ for all.[u]Devising a way for the acknowledgement[/u] of sin, misunderstanding, and reconciliation, that might occur pages later in a thread, [u]to appear nearer to the offence[/u]. Maybe an added symbol for latter regretted, see above. That way, readers who are new to SI would not be discouraged before coming to the acknowledgement. I take it that most here understand the danger of picking up the offense of another. Those with a gift of mercy are vulnerable to this. That often seems to me to be a rare but unprofitable source of a pile on. There is a testimony here. Reconciliation is a Glory to God to behold.
