    Please read before posting

    Many of us are convinced that 2011 and beyond will be years of great change. So convinced that we feel it's time for a forum dedicated to this single topic alone: Breaking News.

    The content for this forum is exactly what it sounds like – if something newsworthy is going down right now anywhere in the world, this is the place to mention and discuss it.

    No one can make an informed decision without accurate information. Hopefully this forum will go some way to providing a Christian perspective on the mountains of good and dis-information out there as we sift through it together.

    Please note this forum is for current events only.

    Re: Please read before posting

    I see this thread (and forum) was started on January 15, 2011. I have felt for some time 2011 would be a watershed year. The rest of the admins agree which is why we started it. But we had no idea it would be this serious.

    Off the top of my head, so far this year has brought us (in no particular order) the following:

    "biblical" floods in Australia
    8.9!! earthquake in Japan
    Conflict in Egypt
    growing military build-up in Lybia
    Japan disaster now on Chernobyl level
    BRICS making a global stand
    6.3 Magnitude earthquake hits New Zealand
    Another big quake - this time in Myanmar
    Prodding Israel, Obama embraces Palestine borders

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE ADMINISTRATORS.

    Everyone, please see this Sticky in Announcements:

    http://bibleforums.org/showthread.ph...00#post2930700
    My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16

    "Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)

    Thumbs up Bible Forums Vision, and the Breaking News forum.


    Please take a look at my signature....

    Bible Forums Vision: "To be a community of believers who are actively engaged in pursuing the truth of God as revealed in His Son Jesus Christ by way of studying the Scriptures diligently in order to discover this truth."

    I would really like you to think about that in any future posts in "Breaking News".... Or on the forum.


    We would be well served to focus more on our reason for being here.... Both on the net, and in this World.

    Please be prepared to discuss how any thread you start relates to that vision, better yet please address that in the original post.

    The intention is not to stifle the discussion, but rather relate these important discussions to our vision statement....

    Please let me or any of the staff know (in PM, or Chat to Moderators) if you have any question about how this relates to a post you want to make.

    Blessings, all.

    Exclamation Please post all political news articles in the political forum.

    If they are posted in Breaking News they will be closed or moved.
    2 Ti 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

    Re: Please post all political news articles in the political forum.

    If you post a political news article in BN it will disappear. They need to be posted in Political. This is stated in all the rule stickies for this forum.
