    It looks like it was 3 months ago since the last new member signed up. Am I entering the Twilight Zone? Or are their actually more members than the one member who replied to my blog?

    I have a sarcastic way of looking at things so don't mind my humor. That comes from the designer of me.

    Welcome. We don't get too many new users who then stick around, but those that do, one can have good conversations with.

    So don't get hung up by the number of regulars, dive in and join the fun!

    Hi, IAMinyou.

    Welcome to Interfaith. A good place to start here is with this thread: https://www.interfaith.org/community/threads/7047/

    Pay particular attention to rules #1 and #2. Rest assured, there are no bullies here, but the rules will be enforced. Hope you will enjoy your stay and become a fruitful contributer.

    The question is; Why don't new members stick around?

    I have experienced many forums like this dying because of the rules with bullies making sure new members disappear if they don't conform to certain acceptable thoughts. What are some certain acceptable thoughts in this forum?

    What is so important about rules if you don't believe in our Creator's thoughts? Did you know that none of the former prophets and saints were protected by forum rules? They had to walk around in cities filled with religious heathens who were ready to kill them at any moment because of their disbelief in the gospel of God they preached.

    Romans 11:
    3: "Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have demolished thy altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life."
    4: But what is God's reply to him? "I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Ba'al."
    5: So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.
    6: But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.
    7: What then? Israel failed to obtain what it sought. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened,
    8: as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, down to this very day."

    1 Corinthians 4
    10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are prudent in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor.
    11 To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless;
    12 and we toil, working with our own hands; when we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure;
    13 when we are slandered, we try to conciliate; we have become as the scum of the world, the dregs of all things, even until now.

    I didn't design anything but whatever was designed a very long time ago, I make sure it is delivered to each mind of Man created in HIS IMAGE.

    Genesis 1
    26: Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
    27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

    Proverbs 8
    22 The LORD created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old.
    23 Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth.
    24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water.
    25 Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth;
    26 before he had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world.
    27 When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
    28 when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep,
    29 when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
    30 then I was beside him, like a master workman; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always,
    31 rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the sons of men.

    The question is: why do you want to join our forum if you don't like it here? Do you go to other peoples' houses and tell them how to arrange their furniture? You're free to go.
    We don't try to force our own beliefs on others. We listen and talk to each other.
    This is an intro thread. This is an interfaith forum, people of different faiths discussing their own ways to the Divine. Posting lists of Bible quotes is not the same as someone discussing their beliefs.

    I have heard all these stories before by the those who operate forums like this. The only one's acceptable are those that conform to the chosen thoughts of the members of the forum. All you end up doing is talking about the same old thoughts every day for years.

    I know that many members who joined this forum are watching the words from other members. They are afraid to post their thoughts and beliefs because of the bullies that run them out. Many of them are chosen believers who love reading words from their FATHER, the CREATOR and they contact me. In fact, I already have a secret admirer and I have only shared a few thoughts from our FATHER.

    Are you going to take away from them the words from our FATHER?
