GLOWFriends Posting Guide Lines

  1. All posts to this list are to be considered confidential and are not to be forwarded to any person not currently on the list, except by specific permission of the author(s) who wrote the original post. This rule is so important that anyone ignoring this rule may be immediately dropped from the list.

  2. Private posts are not to be shared with the list or with anyone else without the specific permission of the writer.

  3. One of the main purposes of this list is to support each other as we seek to develop and maintain a relationship with Christ in our individual life circumstances. So we discourage the posting of political items and controversial points of belief.

  4. While sexually explicit language may at times be necessary in the discussion, unnecessary sexual references and sexual jokes are discouraged.

  5. We believe each of us has but a dim and partial understanding of God’s truth, and He guides each of us in individual ways from our unique starting points toward the center of His understanding. Thus I expect posters to be respectful of others' views, even though these may be perceived as being wrong.

  6. We each have the responsibility to be true to the convictions to which God has led us, while keeping an open mind toward new insights He may bring. This needs to be evident in the way we talk to each other, and thus it is useful to use phrases such as "I think," "It seems to me," or "I feel," rather than bluntly telling others how wrong they are.

  7. We encourage subscribers to remember that the most effective way to persuade others to allow God to work in their lives is to testify of his power in our own lives. Thus our goal should not be to convince others to see things "our way," but to simply share what our experiences and study have led us to understand.

  8. Since this is a support list for those who are convinced that sexual activity is only appropriate within the covenantal bond of heterosexual marriage, posts arguing the acceptability of gay sex are not appropriate for this list. However, honest questions are always appropriate.

  9. We try to make this a safe place for everyone concerned and may return a post to you because of possibly hurtful content. If your post is returned, please revise it and submit again. Do not send it privately to the person to whom you are responding.

  10. If you have a disagreement with a moderator, please discuss it in private instead of writing to others about your disagreement. Critical gossip destroys the atmosphere we wish to maintain on this list and we will not knowingly keep subscribers who engage in it.

We trust that you will find these guide lines agreeable and look forward to getting better acquainted.

In His love,
Inge Anderson, list owner,
 and the moderator team.
