Amen and I also agree with alreadymind and believe you have the character to be a future moderator.Brother you have been such a blessing to SI and myself because of your humility and keen wisdom the Lord has shown you.I thought about the wise choices Greg has made in the moderators recently with Christian, Robert, and Compton. These are men with character as well as Paul and Greg. The moderators do an excellent job and are very well versed in the bible with wisdom from God to articulate the gospel message and to help give aid to others. They strive to keep the unity of the Spirit and make sure that people are treating each other with respect. blessings...from brother rbanks
I am no longer seeing stars, someone please hit me again :-)Have the stars been taken away? No biggie, I have always viewed them as performance, like a good record so far. By the way, what were they for?
_________________SI Moderator - Greg Gordon
I am just bringing up these new "guiding principles" for those that have not seen them and we are going to be revising them in the next week God willing also. Thanks for all the input so far.
These sound like good guidelines, i have no complaints or disagreement with any of them. I just have to be honest though and say that i feel VERY distrustful of any authority now after so many years of having been in churches where that authority was conducted with arrogance, abused, etc. There have also been other forms of authority i have encountered in society that have abused their authority and/or proven themselves untrustworthy, harsh, etc. So now i find it a LOT harder to respect ANY authority. My hackles go up around now around anyone in any position with a title or position of leadership over others. So i ask that any moderator who addresses me please do it in a meek, non-authority fashion (i'm having trouble saying what i am trying to say here but hopefully you get the idea). Basically, anyone with a title really raises my hackles. I'll try to refrain from snarling. Of course, i have to remind myself too that it is nothing personal.
Tremendous comments so far which are helping us modify and change these rules as we are still revising them. Any other comments and suggestions as you read through them?Thank saints for your feedback to help make sermon index a place where it can continue to be safe, encouraging and uplifting.
