PostSubject: Rules - respect   Sat Sep 01, 2007 6:14 am

People have strongly held beliefs about the nature and worship of God. Who the ‘forum’ believes to be the creator of all things. The essence of everything that exists come from ‘him’. The scriptures declare ‘do not take the name of the Lord in vain’. Whilst this forum uses terms such as, Lord and God, it also uses the terms HaShem (the name) and Adonai (Lord, as in God). All references to him are to be treated with respect at all times, for he is holy.


It is expected that this same reverence shall be extended to all manifestations of the Godhead from a orthodox Christian or Jewish viewpoint. These being the persons of Jesus (Yeshua) and Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh).


The working definition of ‘christian’ according to the forum, is someone who is following the teachings of Jesus in both theory and practice. That they hold him to be messiah of Israel, both Son of Man (Daniel 7) and Son of God.

In line with elements of old belief systems, Jesus was: born of a young woman/virgin, led a sinless life, proved himself to be Messiah through specific miraculous signs, died on a cross to provide redemption from sin, was buried and resurrected from the dead as a firstfruit offering. His followers believe Jesus will return again to judge the living and the dead and establish his kingdom with mankind. The forum will not base its definition solely on any specific creedal system.





The scriptures, consisting of Tanakh (Torah, Prophets and
Writings) and the Apostolic scriptures (New Testament) are the final authority
as far as the forum is concerned. Whilst
the forum acknowledges some groups use further documents for authorative
purposes, these should be used as secondary texts to the scriptures. In posting, the scriptures should be treated
with respect, and should not be mis-used, twisted or removed from there
context. Whilst the forum acknowledges
the use of the scriptures, being interpreted for ‘today’, the forum believes
that the scriptures are best interpreted according to their historical and
social context firstly, and for ‘today’ secondarily.
