Bill's Bible Basics Group
The Bill's Bible Basics Group is an extension of the Bill's Bible Basics ministry at https://www.billkochman.com.index.html. It is comprised of friends who share my Christian faith, and who have no problem with boldly share their faith online. This group is strictly for the discussion of our Christian beliefs, and issues which directly affect our faith. It is my hope that this group will serve as a "watering hole" where fellow Christians can be refreshed, and fellowship with each other. Group members are welcome to respectfully comment on the content that is posted here. Following are this group's rules. BBB GROUP  RULES Last Updated: November 10, 2020 02:40 AM These rules are subject to change at my discretion. 1. No canvassing for political candidates or other causes. 2. As Christians, we are first and foremost citizens of the Kingdom of God. As such, patriotism, 2nd amendment rights and political party discussions are inappropriate and off-topic here. 3. No rumors or conspiracy theories of any kind allowed here. 4. Promoting as truth any form of New Age thought, Buddhism, or any other oriental religion or practice is off-topic here. If it is not Christian, keep it to yourself. 5. Any other topic or cause which is not directly related to our Christian faith is also off-limit here. 6. Absolutely no doctrinal debates allowed. I don't care if you are Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib or Post Trib. Or Preterist, Historicist or Futurist. Or Calvinist or Arminian. Or pro-OSAS or anti-OSAS. No debates, period. Please refer to this article on the Bill's Bible Basics website: https://www.billkochman.com/Articles/Doctrinal-Debate-01.html 7. This is a non-denominational Christian group. I do not embrace or support denominationalism, because it divides the Body of Christ. As such, please do NOT promote your particular church or denomination here. 8. No harsh criticisms of, or personal attacks against, any other member. 9. To protect us from scams, viruses, trojans, embarrassment, etc., no external links or posts of any kind are allowed for news stories, images (pictures, photos, animated GIFs) or videos. I alone retain this privilege, and will only be using it to post materials directly from the BBB website which is a 100% safe website. 10. No cussing of any kind; not even using Internet shorthand. Please remember this: "Let no CORRUPT COMMUNICATION proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." Ephesians 4:29, KJV "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are TRUE, whatsoever things are HONEST, whatsoever things are JUST, whatsoever things are PURE, whatsoever things are LOVELY, whatsoever things are of GOOD REPORT; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8, KJV "But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, FILTHY COMMUNICATION out of your mouth." Colossians 3:8, KJV 11. No self-promotion of your own timeline, page or group. If you are just here to try to draw people to your own ministry, then you are in the wrong place. 12. Do NOT spam this group. What I mean by this is the following. Some people go around to all of the Christian groups and post the very same message in all of them, in order to spread their particular message, or whatever it is they are promoting. That is NOT what groups are for, and that is NOT what this group is for. If you just joined the BBB group so you can spam it, not only will I delete all of your messages, but if you annoy me sufficiently, I will block you as well. If you really don't want to participate here, then please don't join to begin with. 13. Please post long commentaries regarding your personal beliefs on your own timeline, page or in your own group. This group is not your teaching platform, so please abide in your calling as the Apostle Paul instructs us to do. Thank you. 14. Do NOT type in all uppercase/capital letters. It is considered rude, and shouting. If you have a SERIOUS health issue such as a vision problem, I am willing to make an exception to this rule. 15. For the sake of unity within this group, it is preferred that all Bible verse quoting be done only from the KJV Bible, and not from the NKJV, NIV, NASV, The Message, or any other translation. As such, any posts which contain non-KJV verses will be deleted: "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, THAT YE ALL SPEAK THE SAME THING, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." 1 Corinthians 1:10, KJV 16. This group promotes the view that we are New Testament Christians who follow the pattern of the First Century Church. We have been freed from the bondage of legalism by the Blood of Christ. We are not Old Testament Jews. As such, please refrain from using Old Testament names for God the Father and Jesus, and from using Hebrew words such as "Shalom", "Ruach Hakodesh", etc. If you post here, use traditional Christian words and phrases such as God, God the Father, God bless you, Jesus, Jesus Christ, Christ, Lord, Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, etc., and not their Hebrew equivalents. Judaizers, Hebrew Roots propagandists and other legalists are not welcome here. 17. This is not a political, pro-Israel group, so please refrain from pro-Israel/CUFI propaganda. We are here to uplift and promote God the Father, Jesus Christ and God's Word. If your primary interest is to promote Israel, the Jews and all things Jewish, please take it elsewhere. Thank you. 18. Please keep this in mind: "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him . . . AND HE THAT SOWETH DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN." Proverbs 6:16-19, KJV 19. Anyone who makes a post, or begins a comment with "I declare" or "I decree" will be muted in this group, and your post deleted. 20. Absolutely no solicitations for donations of any kind -- money, clothing, school supplies, Bible supplies, etc. Thank you for choosing to be a part of our online fellowship here. I hope we are a blessing and an inspiration to each other. Your Pal in Jesus, Bill Kochman CSN Administrator
