Just reread this thread and still stand by what I said in my last (only) post here: faith has a place here, religion does not.

I have faith but religion I can do without. How one relates to a (or the) higher power is individual and highly personal and, quite frankly (IMO) no one else's business.

Thank you again to all the mods for keeping this topic off the boards.

Does this include venting about religious ideas while venting about my situation?

These forums are so much the better for this rule.

Just wanted to voice my support.

Perfect example of why the no politics rule is universal and all encompassing...

A thread is going on about a (former) politician that I want to reply to, but will not. Why? Because a while I ago I posted about a different (former) politician and was admonished. Right now as I see see that thread I am wondering what I did wrong. I am not upset just confused.

But I support the mods and this is why. Allowing a little leads to this feeling and totally sidetracks from the real reason we are all here. Sure politics can give many fine learning tools, but it is simply too divisive.

I support the SI position and the mods, and really can't wait to get past November.

There is a fine line here between discussing politics and discussing political figures. I have no problem with someone bringing up something a political figure did if it relates to infidelity. However, politics and political issues do not belong here. There is enough other material to discuss. And I'm a political debate fanatic, I love it. But that's one rule I don't think I've ever broken here <amazingly>.

Anything less than full disclosure and total transparency is pure bullshit. WARNING! No emotional pollution allowed.

hi.. i hope it's okay to ask this here... seems like it is....

i was raised without religion except for the fundamental values.

I dabble in things biblical from from a lay person's perspective and I have gotten as far as to consider myself a "Tolstoyan," and to explain, I quote Wiki: "Tolstoyans tend to focus more on following the teachings of Jesus, rather than on his miracles or divinity."

I have recently tried to understand the concepts of grace and truth from a biblical perspective and particularly how it relates to infidelity.

I don't even know what i'm asking but if I were to make "grace and truth" my "motto", what would that mean, exactly.

I'm getting lost online with complex theology!

thanks so much for anyone who knows about this and can help with my understanding. I think I like holding Grace and Truth as one of my Motto's but then i started reading about the Paradox of Grace and Truth and I got all confused.

Yes thank you mods! So many forums get overrun with that talk and while there's a lot of viewpoints I may respect (or, not).. I get sick of seeing it overrun every form of public discussion.. and there really is no room for that here. It's good to be able to have a place to get away from all that.. and keep things focused on the one topic we're really here to discuss.

Hi SI Staff, Why not just have a topic entitled, "Religious & Political Threads"? Then people can enter in or not? I clicked on this because I thought this was a thread where people could actually talk about it. :) I understand you're already doing a lot of work for us...I already appreciate this site "as-is", so I'm just suggesting.

Hi SI Staff, Why not just have a topic entitled, "Religious & Political Threads"?

Mainly because we're not a religious or political site.

In the ICR forum there is a thread for those that want encouragement through religion

DS,

Could I ask about this post by stepping up on the thread "When did i become so evil"...

Roadtripper,

God cares deeply for the BS, more than I or anyone else can say, I know it is hard to feel it, I have been looking for it day and night and I used to feel so close to God, the hate and resentments I had/have have blocked that from coming in. My heart is no longer soft and receptive, but I am getting back there.

You are loved, deeply.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted - Matthew 5:4

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven - Matt 5:3

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds - Psalm 147:3

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit - Psalm 34:18

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners - Isaiah 61:1

... From what i have understood of the statement at the start of this thread - this isn't ok. I have PM'd losferwords about my concerns but also just realised i could ask here.

I am uncomfortable with the fact that judeo-christian religious posting goes vastly un-flagged while I feel if i was to reply with an opposing POV, it would anger many and potentially get flagged itself.

Why are these kinds of posts ok? Would it be ok for me to post an opposing view? Is religious posting only ok if it goes un-challenged?

I would love some clarification on this if possible?

Thanks :)

People are allowed to discuss their faith so long as it doesn't de-rail into debating.
