CSNet TERMS OF SERVICE

Last Updated: May 8, 2021

 

The Christian Social Network Terms of Service are simple and should be easy to follow for any decent person. Currently, they are as follows, and may be updated at any time, as the need requires. It is your responsibility to make sure that you remain abreast to any changes in these terms.

1. Any account which does not have BOTH a profile pic and a cover image within 24 hours of its creation will be subject to deletion. No exceptions. This action will help to ward off bogus accounts which were created by bots. If you are a real person, and if you have time to register with CSNet and log in, surely you have time to add both a profile pic and a cover image to your account.

2. These undesirables will be removed from the CSNet website immediately upon their discovery:

-- Forex and cryptocurrency traders
-- other get-rich-quick scammers
-- spammers
-- porn star wannabes
-- lonely hearts looking for love
-- sexual predators (pedophiles, women stalkers, etc.)
-- other riffraff.

3. No swearing (expletives) of any kind, including acronyms such as "WTF". 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

4. 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, an exception to this rule may be made by the CSNet Administrator.

5. No canvassing for political candidates or other causes, political or otherwise.

6. As Christians, we are first and foremost citizens of the Kingdom of God. As such, promoting patriotism, 2nd amendment rights, political party agendas, etc., should NOT be the main themes of discussion here. Such topics are already discussed ad nauseam on thousands of other websites, and this is not what CSNet is about. We promote God's Kingdom and NOT secular politics.

7. This is a non-denominational Christian website. Denominationalism divides the Body of Christ. As such, please do NOT promote your particular church or denomination here, or its particular beliefs.

8. For the sake of unity, 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:

"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

• 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. As

9. This website 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. As such, if you post here, we prefer that you strive to use traditional, long-accepted Christian words and phrases such as God, God the Father, God bless you, Jesus, Jesus Christ, Christ, Lord, Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, etc.

10. Christian Judaizers, Hebrew Roots propagandists and other legalists are not welcome here. Please take it elsewhere.

11. This is not a political, pro-Israel website, 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, you are in the wrong place.

12. 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

13. Anyone who makes a post, or begins a comment with "I declare" or "I decree" will have their post deleted upon discovery.

14. Absolutely no solicitations for donations of any kind -- money, clothing, school supplies, Bible supplies, etc.

15. No rumors or conspiracy theories of any kind are allowed here. Let's promote the straight truth of God's Word and leave the questionable nonsense on other social networks.

16. 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.

17. Any other topic or cause which is not directly related to, or which does not affect, our Christian faith is also off-limit here.

18. No harassing, belittling, trolling, attacking or provoking other visitors to the Christian Social Network.

19. No commercial advertising of any kind. Period. The Christian Social Network centers around God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. It is NOT your personal fishing hole to try to gain customers or clients.

20. No advertising or self-promotion of other external websites, blogs, forums, mailing lists or any other product, service or online medium of communication. If you are here simply to promote something or someone else, then you are here for the wrong reason.

21. Please refrain from posting sermons written by other preachers, as it could result in lawsuits against us. This platform is for you to share what you PERSONALLY believe, and NOT what other servants of the Lord teach and preach. Furthermore, the Bible instructs us to each abide in our own calling, and to not meddle in the ministries of others, or to try to draw people away to them:

22. To protect us from possible scams, viruses, trojans, possible lawsuits, personal embarrassment, etc., before you post links to external websites, please make sure that they are safe. The fact is that too many nasty things are spread by questionable and/or deceptive links, so we must all be vigilant.

23. No spamming of other timelines, pages, groups, forums or blogs which do not belong to you. In other words, do NOT go around posting the same content multiple times to drum up business, or for any other reason. If you just joined CSNet so that you can spam it, be advised that all of your messages will be deleted. Likewise, if you become sufficiently annoying, you will be blocked from this website. If you really don't want to participate here, then please don't join to begin with.

24. This is a Christian-oriented website for fellow Christians. No vicious attacks against our faith will be tolerated by nonbelievers. If you don't share our Bible-based views, please go elsewhere where such behavior is allowed.

25. Absolutely no doctrinal debates are allowed anywhere at any time. If necessary, agree to disagree, and let it go. The following topics often lead to heated exchanges, name calling, hurt feelings, etc., and are thus discouraged from being discussed. But if you do, it's on you, so please don't expect the Administrator to serve as a referee:

-- Pre-Trib vs. Mid-Trib vs. Post Trib
-- Preterist vs. Historicist vs. Futurist
-- Calvinist vs. Arminian
-- Pro-OSAS vs. anti-OSAS

To reiterate, please refrain from doctrinal debates, because they rarely lead to anything good. Please refer to this article on the Bill's Bible Basics website:

https://www.billkochman.com/Articles/Doctrinal-Debate-01.html

26. Do NOT upload any commercial videos or commercial music files to this server. Any music you upload to CSNet must be clearly Christian in nature, and must either be royalty-free, or else the original artist of the music must clearly grant permission on their website -- or in some other form -- for their music to be freely shared across the Internet. It is your responsibility to provide evidence of the same to the CSNet Administrator, should a dispute arise. Any commercial videos and commercial music will be removed from this site without hesitation, upon its discovery.
