Deeper Waters Forum Guidelines

Notice The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

Deeper Waters is founded on the belief that the Christian community has long been in the shallow end of Christianity while there are treasures of the deep waiting to be discovered. Too many in the shallow end are not prepared when they go out beyond those waters and are quickly devoured by sharks. We wish to aid Christians to equip them to navigate the deeper waters of the ocean of truth and come up with treasure in the end.

We also wish to give special aid to those often neglected, that is, the disabled community. This is especially so since our founders are both on the autism spectrum and have a special desire to reach those on that spectrum. While they are a special emphasis, we seek to help others with any disability realize that God can use them and that they are as the Psalmist says, fearfully and wonderfully made.

    Should you celebrate the day? http://deeperwaters.wordpress.com/20...ween-thoughts/

    I get the impression that this is from the kids' perspective. But does it change when we think of how adults generally celebrate? Sexy nurse costumes are probably a bad idea, but what about haunted houses?

      Haunted houses? Well it would depend on the house and the content. (I definitely don't care for Hell Houses)

      As for sexy nurse costumes and such, yes. Adults should not wear clothing that is inappropriate. (Unless of course it's in the privacy of their own homes. I certainly would have no objections to Mrs. Peters doing this if it was just us at home.)

        My son shared this blog post on FB the other day, and it is an interesting read, as well.

            "Trunk or treat"? Let me trunk to . . . try to understand. Let me see . . . a threat or treat? I guess, a trunk is to be dropped on whoever refuses to give out candy.

              Um, I'm pretty sure that's where they have the candy stored in car trunks, and let the kids get them out of there.

                  EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR is someone's pagan holiday, so if you don't celebrate pagan days you can't celebrate ANY day.
