Because I really want Pre-DenominationalChristianity.com to start thought and dialogue which is focused on the Christianity found in the New Testament, questions and comments are welcome even when they challenge and disagree with the articles I’ve written. However, I do not wish for any question or comment on this blog to be sarcastic, vulgar and/or impolite in nature. The reason I do not want this is because I want all articles and discussions on this blog to show a reflection of a Christ-like spirit at all times.
Therefore, I reserve the right to delete and not answer questions or comments which I deem to be snarky, obscene and/or rude. This does not mean that I am trying to dodge the question; rather, I want the light and love of Christ to be shown on this site and this is how that goal will be met.
In addition, I request that all comments and questions posted to a particular article stay relevant solely to the topic covered in that article, that they be no longer than 300 words, and that you refrain from spamming this site or advertising your own site or product here.
I will do my best to provide a biblical response to each question asked of me as quickly as I can. Sometimes it might take a bit before you hear from me due to other responsibilities I have which in many cases take precedence over this blog, but I promise to do my best to respond with a biblical answer as quickly as I can and in as best a Christian manner as I know how. This being my own blog, I reserve the right to have the last word, moderate the conversation in any way I see fit, and use, print, store, repost, distribute, or reproduce whatever you post in the comments in any way I see fit, including — but not limited to — a book, a magazine article, a blog post, or a sermon presentation. (So think before you write. Don’t say anything you don’t want the world to see.)
Please also note that each of my responses are designed by me to fully answer each question as best as I know how. While I do not claim to be perfect in reaching that goal every time, I do my best to do so with each question. One of the main reasons I do so is because I’ve found that Internet discussions can easily turn into “beating a dead horse” territory, in which one or both parties end up making the same points over and over again. I want to try to avoid that on my blog. Therefore, for my part I promise to fully answer each of your questions as best as I know how, and in return I ask that you keep your follow-up questions from covering ground already covered earlier in my responses and that you limit them to only 1-2 additional comments or questions. If you have a follow-up question to a response that I give to an earlier question that you’ve asked, I will answer it if I honestly feel I didn’t already answer it appropriately earlier, either in the article or in my earlier response to you. If I feel that your follow-up is leading into needless repetition, I will delete it and not answer it. This will be done not out of any animosity towards you nor out of a desire to dodge your question, but rather out of a desire to avoid having future readers feel like both of us are “beating a dead horse.”
Thanks for keeping all of this in mind, and thanks especially for reading my blog and caring enough to engage in discuss spiritual matters in a Christian manner.
