Welcome New Moderator!

He is certainly not “new” around these parts, but please welcome @LM77 to our moderator team! He hails from across the pond, so can maybe keep some of you night owls in check before we can get to you in the morning. :wink:

Now is also a good a time as any to refresh yourselves on the expectations when interacting with others on this forum. These guidelines are provided here:

Here are a few in particular that we’d like to draw your attention to:

  • Focus on discussing other people’s ideas, not on evaluating their character, faith, communication style, or perceived “tone.” Please avoid attributing beliefs, motivations, or attitudes to others.

  • Contribute thoughts that are relevant to the topic at hand, and avoid intentionally steering a conversation off-topic.

  • Assume legitimate Christian faith on the part of other people, unless they identify otherwise. The purpose of discussions here is not to judge the legitimacy or efficacy of anyone’s faith or lack of faith.

  • State your case and then respect other people’s right to agree or disagree. Avoid repeating the same ideas over and over because you have failed to convince everyone to accept your viewpoint.

  • …This is not the right place for debates on God’s existence or the general merits of the Christian faith.

Happy posting!


You already had the best moderators I’ve found anywhere and this choice meets that standard. Welcome aboard, @LM77 and thank you for your service!


Aw, thanks Mark! We do our best.


Thanks @HRankin and @MarkD. And thank you BioLogosians for your contributions towards creating this delightful corner of the internet.
