The Bridge is Out administrators have removed all the comments for short while. This reprieve has given them time to regroup and look at how this blog is used by its readers.
TBIO understands the need for discussion and recognizes that some commentators require anonymity. The concern that admin has is that some commentators use anonymity to make statements that they might not make if they used their real name. We encourage our readers to keep the comments respectful, whether under alias or actual name. This does not mean that only one side of the issue is represented; this means that parties on both sides of the issue behave themselves properly, in a Christian manner. We can disagree and still be polite.
Le your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Above all, TBIO resents the abuse of God's Word. Scripture has been used to hurl insults at fellow believers. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Use of it to benefit ourselves and hurt another person is essentially breaking this commandment, and the administrators of TBIO will not be part of this.
TBIO will continue to work to make this blog a safe place for people who have escaped the bondage of legalism to share their stories, connect with others who have similar experiences, and warn others that the bridge is out: there may be danger ahead.
