"But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; Yet do it with gentleness and reverence. Keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who abuse you for your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God’s will, than to suffer for doing evil" (1 Peter 3:15-17).

This group is dedicated to discussion about theology. This is primarily a Christian community, but respectful people from all walks of life are welcome here. Proselytization is not encouraged, neither by members nor visitors. This means that visitors should feel welcome to discuss things from an interfaith perspective without fear of having people try to convert them.

While posts promoting other communities are allowed, they should be relevant to this community. Please consider relevance when deciding whether or not to promote another community in this one.

Discussion and debate are encouraged. Even heated debate. Trolling, obviously, is not tolerated. Anonymous posting is no longer enabled as of January 2nd 2007. If you can't say it in person, then you shouldn't say it at all.

And that about sums it up, for now. Happy theologizing!
