Since I have figured out more of what we are going to do, and where and when we are going to do stuff, I decided to let you all in on it. So here is a description of each of the main rooms and their intended purposes.Discussion room
This is where we discuss topics directly related to how God wants government (the civil magistrates) to work. There are only three topics allowed at a time to help us focus. The goal in each discussion should be to come to a conclusion.
When a conclusion is reached, a concluding post will be made, the topic will be archived, and a new thread will be moved in from the Queue.Definitions Room
This is where we are supposed to deal with the imperative task of defining our terms. We are not simply listing general definitions, but very specific ones to be used in our later discussions. We are establishing the context and scope of the words that we use to avoid misinterpretation of what we say.
Again, only three threads at a time. If you want to start a new thread, start it in the Queue.Bible Study Room
This room is dedicated to topics dealing with the Bible. There is no limit to the topics posted here, but it is recommended that you use great care and discretion in posting in here. All Scripture quotes must be from the KJV, even if you do not use KJV in your home studies, and your applications of Scripture must be consistent with the KJV.Queue
If you want to start a topic anywhere, it is recommended that you start it here,
and then let a moderator move it into the appropriate room at an appropriate time. This helps us time our discussions with each other and keep us focused. Align Room
This is one of the most important rooms. Here is where we state our purposes and get on the same page. This is where we agree.
We do not attack anyone anywhere on the forum, but we especially do not do it here. If you have not yet, post in the threads in here!Act Room
This is where I am planning to do the following:
- Coordinate and initiate research endeavors
- Discuss pending posts for the blog
- Craft the end result of our musings: a constitution
I will open the Act room when it is time to do so. Once we have reached some definite conclusions, we will be able to start writing articles in support of those conclusions, those will be posted in here, word-smithed, and then posted on the blog. We will craft the constitution when we have decided on most everything, which is very far into the future at our present rate. We will be starting some research endeavors when we have some more members.Adjust Room
This is where we will analyze our decisions and actions periodically to make sure that we are on target, figure out how to boost our efficiency, and fix any errors that we may make.Invent Room
This is where we will spend some time just prior to big actions. We will wildly brainstorm and generate creative ideas for them.BlogThis is going to be our public face.
We will post articles articulating our ideas and defending them. They will demonstrate our conclusion's biblical, historical, and logical support. Any suggestions for the blog can be made in the Suggestions Room.
Some of these things we are using now, some we will be using shortly, and some we will use far in the future. I hope that you will understand a little better what my plan is for this forum now. If you have any questions of comments, please feel free to post them on here.
With joy and peace in Christ,
