Default ILJ Terms of Service

ILJ Statement of Belief and Terms of Service:
There are some basic beliefs that form the heart of this site. Here are some of the most basic of these beliefs:
The Bible is the word of God. It tells us the history of the human race and shows the standards for Christian behavior. The Bible tells us that in the beginning God was. He existed before all else. God created heaven and earth, humans and animals. Humans were created in Godís image to be in fellowship with Him. They were not puppets but had free will and could make choices. The first humans sinned by disobeying God. This sin separated humans from fellowship with God. All humans since then have been born with a sin nature. All people have sinned; they are less righteous than God. The wages of sin is death, eternal separation from God and punishment in a literal hell. God still loves humans and does not want us to be condemned to eternal death. He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to be our Savior. Jesus the Christ was 100od and 100uman at the same time. Jesus never sinned. Because He did not sin, He could offer himself as a sacrifice to take the punishment for our sin. He died on the cross, was buried, and rose on the third day to demonstrate that His sacrifice was accepted by God. We can be saved from eternal death and hell and come into fellowship with God only by faith in the power of His blood to make atonement for our sin. When we receive Jesus as our Savior we die to our old nature and are made new in Him.

You do not have to believe what we believe to come to this site or post on these boards. You do need to realize, though, that these beliefs are the standards for this board. Anyone is welcome to ask questions and participate in discussions. All boards are moderated and posts which disparage or are disrespectful to God, The Lord Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, the Bible, or the standards of right and decency set forth in the Bible will not be permitted. If anyone persists in posting things like that they will lose the privilege of posting on this site. If anyone is banned or suspended and they come back and sign up again and post, that username and/or email address and IP will also be banned without warning.

Although the administrators and moderators of ILJ Boards will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of ILJ Boards, Christian Web Host, Inc., nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of ILJ Boards reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

By clicking the Agree button, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws. We reserve the right to delete any message, topic, to ban a username, IP address, domain name, or email address for *any reason* that we (the owners of this board) feel is deserved (especially if you repeatedly post argumentative or offending posts).
You also agree that you will not post any messages on our boards that try to persuade others against Christianty, promote a distorted view of the Bible, promote pro-abortion views or the homosexual lifestyle. You may think this narrowminded, but this is our site and if you want to argue, please go elsewhere. That is not what this place is for and never has been. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this BB. We may be forced to delete posts that contain copyrighted material not owned by you unless you have permission to post them there. Although this BB does not and cannot review the messages before they are posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at this BB reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this BB, the owners of this site, Christian Web Host Inc., or Jelsoft Enterprises Limited (developers of vBulletin) and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s). We at this BB reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you. By posting in this bulletin board, you are agreeing that you are either at least 18 years old or have permission from your parents or legal quardians to post here (this site is not intended for those aged 13 and under and we ask that those 13 and under do not register unless their parents send in the COPPA registration form).

Please note that all images, smilies, avatars, etc, are copyrighted or used by permission. You do NOT have permission to link to them or download them to your computer for use anywhere besides this website.

We regret that we can not allow posts soliciting funds for people and organizations not known to the board owners, admins and moderators. There are many real needs and worthwhile causes but there are also situations that are not as they are represented and the nature of the Internet makes it difficult to know which ones those are. Therefore for the protection of our members and to avoid the possibility of iljboards being in any way used to foster a scam we do not allow requests for money, goods, or services unless the situation is one that is known personally to the board leadership.

Using a remote program to post messages on our board is not allowed. If you are not interested in coming personally to for fellowship and posting at our site, please do not sign up. We want fellowship among our members and sending messages with a remote program does not promote any kind of friendship or community.

Using email addresses taken from anywhere on for "Spamming", or the sending of unsolicited e-mail to members here or through this system including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, website promotions, etc. is strictly prohibited. Using member information from iljboards in this way will result in loss of membership priveleges and may result in other consequences. The owners of iljboards will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Posting the same or similar message to one or more boards within the site (excessive cross-posting or multiple-posting, also known as "SPAM") is also explicitly prohibited. Urgent prayer requests are an exception to this rule.

We pray that ilj boards will be a blessing to each person who comes here. If you have questions or need help please feel free to email a moderator or one of the admins. (a list of moderators and administrators can be found here) The owners of and its moderators have the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason. Once again, by clicking the button below to proceed with the registration process, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms of posting.

Smile Welcome and some board basics and changes so please read.

Welcome to the Christian Fellowship board. This is the place to post ideas, opinions, thoughts, inspirations, and friendly conversations that are not specific to one of the other boards and sometimes ones that are if you want to reach more members. Sort of like the fellowship hall of the church or a cafť where brothers and sisters and friends enjoy getting together.

Itís been traditional for the last 6 yrs or so to have a rules post heading up the CF board. I have a problem with that in a way because I donít like to be hit with a lot of rules when I walk into a so called friendly place. At the same time I know that sometimes people come by who are here for things other than fellowship. Ilj has terms of service to which people agree when they join. Those pretty much sum up the ground rules. There is also a tradition here that arguing and fussing at each other is not an ok thing. If youíve been here a while you can say it in your sleep ďdisagree but donít be disagreeableĒ and ďThis is a Christian board so itís not a place to promote or link to things opposed to Christianity and moralityĒ

Itís a family board with membership allowed at 13 and readers of any age so if it would make your grandma blush or reach for a switch say it differently or donít say it. That also means no name calling, deliberate insulting, cussing, or slamming. If you know provably something negative about someone that you believe should be shared as a warning like the post a while back about someone going around cheating churches please email me or another mod or admin first and letís work together on saying it in a way that gets the message across loud and clear but isnít liable and slander. If you just disagree with their doctrine post something about the doctrine and why you believe what you do about it. Iíd love to see more Bible based discussions here. We wonít all agree on the non basics but we can all learn from one another even if what we learn is that we really donít agree and maybe how to say why more clearly. Political discussions are fine too which is a difference this yr from yrs before. So are posts pointing out problems in the world, the church, personal life etc and sharing solutions or asking for ideas.

We all find sites or books or emails we want to share but there is this thing called copyright. The copyright laws of the US apply here because it is a US based board. So if you didnít write it and want to post it either say it in your own words or post a link to it. Copyright law says that short quotes from something are OK. If you quote from part of something please tell who wrote it and either where it is published or give a working link to it. If it is public domain like 100 yrs old or whatever or the site says use freely please include that in your post and still say where itís from. Thanks.

If you see a post that troubles you to the point where you think it shouldnĎt be here. Please email me or the admin. You do that by clicking on my name or clicking on report a post. If you have a question about why a post was removed, edited, or moved to another bd or any other ilj problem please email me too. I am almost never on IM but I do answer emails as quickly as I can.

Thanks for being here. God bless you.
Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature Matthew 16:15
