>>23034 Ok I have a question, you mentioned the bumplocked /meta/ that you remove posts that have infographics about Judaism/Nazism/Communism etc and how those belong on /pol/. does this mean we're no longer allowed to discuss those things within a Christian context or just a political one? Or do they belong in designated threads?
>>23040 According to >>17684 I allowed there to be one thread for discussing Christianity-related conspiracies, provided they stay moderately relevant to Christianity. You can make a thread for that and use it as your dumping ground for those images. Just don't drag good threads off-topic with them,

Is there by chance an anti-catholic bias on this board? Memes making fun of catholics are left alone, anything making fun of atheists or protestants gets removed. Is that right?
>>23043 I say remove both of them. They do nothing to edify the reader nor increase our faith in the Lord.
your board. You can delete all the Catholics you want.
>>23043 >Is there by chance an anti-catholic bias on this board? No. There is a bias against dragging threads off-topic with ad-hominems and strawmanning like your first image. Green frog pictures and wojaks are also verbolten. >Memes making fun of catholics are left alone, anything making fun of atheists or protestants gets removed. Is that right? No.
>>23043 Only Methodists hate wine.
>>23034 My complaint is with this post, which seems to say that you can complain about moderation as long as your complaint is submissive, pathetic and empty I also complain about all the captchas which are making the board unusable
Allowing an accusation that Pope Benedict was Nazi because he was in the Hitler youth, while banning a rebuttal that explained what that meant makes the Hitler Youth argument against Francis and all Catholics a Reductio ad Hitlerum fallacy. Allowing folks to point out the wickedness of some Catholic priests, while banning posts that are show that they shouldn't be casting the first stone by posting examples of equally wicked protestant ministers, or a rebuttal about the infiltration of the Catholic Church... is siding with the Protestants. Damning Catholics for making a idol of the Cross (seriously?) and then deleting that along with an explanation that Catholics keep the crucifix to remind themselves of the how great the sacrifice of Christ was, is anti-Catholic bias. If the Crucifix is part of the problem that some see with Catholicism, why not let the use of the Crucifix be explained.
>>23044 That would be the most fair approach.
>>23047 But an atheist/protestant being a liar, or at best an ignorant spreading ignorance, is fine, and any rebuttal to their falsity must get removed, because that would be to "drag threads off-topic" Truth and education is off-topic, when lies are being spread. That's what happens here. Memes full of lies attacking catholicism = educated argument Memes making fun of the ignorance of the enemies of the church = low quality off-topic This is called hypocrisy. To lie, knowing to be lying. (or if there is no awareness at all, a sad case of ignorance reinforcing itself)
>>23056 It's not a fair world. Some people will make a really absurd argument just because they don't want to admit they're wrong, and they usually have other reasons than for what they're saying.
>>23056 If you respond to a bait post by a protestant and your post gets deleted it's probably because jannys deleted the other post and just got rid of yours to prevent the board from being filled with a bunch of off topic posts that link back to nothing. Also we literally have a designated interdenominational shit flinging thread so if bait or flaming is post outside of that thread then just ignore it and report.
>>23052 If you can't formulate a respectful, calm, and rational post that at the same time firmly and boldly states your opposition to something the moderation does then that says more about you than anything else.
Captcha are annoying tho especially on mobile
>>23078 Captcha threshhold increased to 75 PPH. That should be more than enough.
>>23049 thats clearly a beer
Why is there 2 meta threads?
>>23201 Last one hit the reply limit and I kept it for reference. Made an archive of it and added a link in the OP here.
>>23203 couldn't you have just deleted some posts like you usually do?

posting this to the top of the board
>>23337 based and truthpilled
Enabled R9K as there is a lot of reposting the same posts/files over and over again.
This post is directed at the local frothing-at-the-mouth Catholic of the board: Stop. Stop dragging threads off-topic with your Catholic slapfighting. Stop spamming QTDDTOT with answers nobody wanted to questions nobody asked. Stop newlining every sentence and redditspacing them. Stop evading bans when your posts get mass deleted for dragging threads off-topic. Stop making your presence so obvious to everyone. Instead, consider the following: >make good posts that are short, to-the-point, and formatted in a way that a normal human can read >stop creating problems where there are none >if you really can't help yourself, keep it in >>20996 I have received numerous complaints from other anons regarding your posts, and I'm done with it. Any more of your nonsense outside of the slapfight thread is delete on sight, no questions asked. Change your style and fit in, or leave.
>>23423 >Change your style and fit in, or leave. This. He's definitely damaged the board BO. I have numerous Catholic & Orthodox friends, I'm Protestant, and we're all Christians, all part of the body of Christ. That anon's intensive villification of everything non-Catholic is both very off-putting, and quite non-Biblical.
>>23423 >>stop creating problems where there are none >>23238 is the only post of mine that i've been able to make this month without it being deleted
Open file (66.96 KB 500x432 hermit-copier.jpg)
>>23423 Here's as much of the deleted off-topic posts from the thread as could be recovered (missing the 8th post 23343 (a question), 14-18 (Prot post asking if anyone believes in tradcath anon's doctrine, he responds that that criticism is an ad populum fallacy, a quip by a third anon about the vanity of the discussion, and two lost posts), and the 26th post 23417 (a reply from the tradcath anon stating that he didn't say it wasn't possible to follow the Bible without the Church, but rather that it wasn't possible to understand it)) archived for posterity's sake: https://archive.is/GOxFI https://archive.ph/NBRbP https://archive.ph/R8pHi https://archive.is/hwTwl https://archive.is/zADfA
>>23423 Well said. I suggest deleting all the responses too as these also derail threads and render them useless for further discussion. If anons want a futile sectarian slapfight we already have a thread for that. It's also the duty of all of us to take a Christian attitude to the provocation of trolls. Resist the temptation to respond, no matter how good your comeback is, and let BO do as he says. Then the trolls will have to samefag their arguments and the whole lot can be deleted. Report the bait and move on. >>23425 >we're all Christians, all part of the body of Christ Amen.

Tvch as usual is blight full of atheists and pagans. Gahoole got a new mod, probably a tranny, who is actively banning Christians, but have zero problem with pedoposters, pagans creating D&C and porn.

>>23576 The problem is you caring about what tvch thinks at all

>>23576 There are better boards out there, a lot of people are leaving that dead board.
>>23576 >zero problem with pedoposters Well, what do you expect from /tv/
>>23576 Gahoole is a fake christian and a fed , his best friend irl (DAIYMO) is an atheistic bisexual dude married with a socialist tranny who hates Jesus. If you post anything about it on his site you get perma banned. Also the majority of their mods are Varg fanboys.
>>23704 There was a a picture of Gahoole's dating profile that said he was an atheists, i don't have it with me.
>>23576 >Luke 9:5 And wherever they do not receive you, when you leave that town shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.”
No more discussion of Gahoole or tvch past this point since it's off-topic.
>>23709 I emailed you about becoming a vol
>>23709 oops. i didn't notice what you mentioned.
Would it be okay to talk about how many versions Protestantism has which is bit off?
>>23731 Why not rather talk about how many forms of humanism have it a lot off? Jew have have it a lot off? Islamists have it a lot off? Leftists have it a lot off? Seems to me your agenda is to focus on dividing the body of Christ. If you can't do anything but complain, then complain about those who utterly reject Jesus Christ completely, friend.
>>23761 what about "Christian Humanism"
>>23709 So, it's okay to create a thread about it? Because one of their mods posted about hating /christian/ and he don't want anything about Jesus on /dup/, just on /truth/ together with crazies talking about aliens.
>>23780 No, board drama is not /christian/ material.
>>23787 This isn't about drama, it's about trying to bring God's light to the unwary and fight for what's right against pagan mods that hate this board.
>>23792 By complaining on a separate board they don't even visit

>>24515 Not meta, but ICP is cringe, but at least they're bringing in new Christians.
>>24515 Christian overtones don't really make a difference, it's full of pretty course language and it's misleading at best. Same thing with NGE. Lots of Christian overtones but not necessarily for a good purpose. ICP seems to either be mocking or having good intentions+bad execution
Any way we can get this place more active? Used to be 30+ users.
Whyever is this board so dead? Did everyone move to d*scord?
>>24846 Glad I missed that. Moderation needs to be stricter. We don't need to abide by the same imageboard rules everyone else does. We are Christians, and this is a place of gathering and a safe haven of Christianity for some people as melodramatic as it sounds. We are Christians and should not only be holding each other accountable but above all honoring the Lord by keeping this place clean. I'd be ok with post verification and/or the removal of images, or maybe an approval system for images if it means this place would be safer (I wouldn't know how to do that from a technical aspect, though.) We are different, to be sure, so we should be stricter to each other and not abide by imageboard rules or culture, but Christian rules. We should act like a church if we're all gathering for the Lord. I bet more people would stay if we acted like one >>24856 This is not wholesome or uplifting language, nor would it be acceptable as critique. Please be less course. We should love each other, we're all made in God's image, even the people you don't like.
>>24841 >>24855 Right-wing images boards have taken a hit in active people since original 8chan went down and became filled by feds. Advertise the board on other chans where Christians might be.
this site thinks me asking a question about why we eat pork despite what Old Testament says is a flood.
Hello brothers in Christ, After some reflection I've decided this board isn't a welcome place for a growing Christian and don't intend to come here anymore. This place is full of hatred and false teachings. You would all do well to spend time in your bibles and grow relationships in the church, outside of the internet. There's just too much baggage associated with imageboards and the kinds of people it brings, and we as a community have not done a good enough job driving those bad people out who come here to mislead. I was a fool to think this place would help me. I'm sure plenty of you are genuine in your faith, but to me, and I hope many others here realize, this is not a helpful, edifying, or uplifting place. There are too many people here who don't understand the entirety and the wholeness of the word of God and do not show good fruits. I believe this place has hindered me from doing the same. Peace be to you all, and I hope this encourages some of you to think. Don't take this as saying "I'm better than all of you", I am still a sinner needing saved, but being here and listening has hurt my confidence in the Lord and has only brought confusion and strife. It's no place for me. Please think about this.
There aren't that many Christian image board, What kind of posts made you leave?
>>24921 I made a telegram group for religious talk if you guys wanna join It's for my denomination but is open to all who want to discuss.

Hello brothers in Christ. After reading that other thread, I decided to make my own to express what I think. This place is full of people of people whom I love and have shared many precious conversations with. I'm extremely grateful to all of you for spending even a little time you have away from church and real life relationships to make /christian/ a little more alive. Being the kind of person who is only attracted to imageboards, I can't express enough how much it has meant to have a Christian imageboard to feel at home in. Although I do try at church and elsewhere to love other people, it's hard to relate to normalfags. That's something I know I need help with. Pray for me that God would grant me that. I'm thankful for this oasis where I can talk about Christian life and Christianity anonymously and freely. Even if we don't always agree on stuff, it's been good and I'm glad you're here. I would rather that than to shut my brother out. It's funny because I think God used this place (and other boards) to teach me how to love other people. I was never able to care much about other people's problems but, hearing people's problems here, I've been often struck with intense sympathy and concern. I think it's because I'm able to connect with people better here. I often pray for other people now which is a huge improvement. Sometimes I've even forgotten to pray for myself. Anyway, being here has been helpful and I've since been able to see people offline like this a bit too and to pray for them or help them. I still have a long way to go on that front. This place saved me during a crisis of faith some years back and helped me immensely in other ways to grow in my faith as well. Please finish the race because I earnestly hope to meet you in Heaven. I want a Heavenly /christian/ reunion. To the non-Christians who have asked genuine questions over the months and years (and who probably aren't reading this), some of the best conversations I've had have been with you and I'm glad you came to ask them. Don't take this as only some attack on the other poster. I've been wanting to write this for a while since there have been multiple negative posts lately. This was just the one that finally prompted me to do it. Maybe this is all a bit too faggy but it needed to be said. Please think about this.
>>24931 same :)
Would the /christian/ staff greenlight the board participating in another Infinity Cup? /christian/ are long standing champions in divegrass and the cup wouldn't be the same without them.
the crappy captcha system for this board nearly makes me want to quit posting altogether. Half the time i have to refresh the page and redo the captchas to submit a post even if i do it right the first time and its 10x worse on mobile. I dont see the point in keeping it anymore, its been months since the trolls and spammers were last seen, all its doing is annoying everyone.
>>24952 Now that someone has brought this up, why do we have to solve two captchas? Is the second one really necessary?
>>24947 im not staff but i want our team in the next icup
>>24952 >>24953 The block bypass is used by the site primarily for VPN users (I think?), the captcha is to reduce spam. I'll change it to only be for making new threads for now but if spam starts up again the captcha goes back to all posts. >>24947 >>24961 We would love to, /christian/ has historically had a very strong team.
>>24984 is it AI that plays the characters or actual people?
>>25022 players are AI, but at certain points in the game the coach in chat will ask the streamers to swap out tired players and change strategies
>>25025 Please be aware that /retro/ was completely destroyed overnight during a slide attack similar to the one that was attempted on /k/ recently. >>>/retro/3176 Please adjust your board's thread rate limit accordingly BO!
>>25112 Only two threads per hour can be made on /christian/ and early 404 is enabled. /retro/ had stuff I liked, what a shame. at least it's a slow board and not too much was lost.

BROTHERS we need to convert muslims God in His almighty wisdom granted us christians the internet with the power to reach across oceans for one reason To spread the gospel of remission of sins through our LORD Jesus Christ The harvest is large and the reapers few Go out and convert muslims with the line They say they believe in Christ's judgment, but deny Christs divinity - who can judge but God? Therefore Christ is God. Convert and win souls brothers selah
in ages past saracen would slay us for converting but with the grace of God above we now have the power of communication without the risk of proximity to heathen Albiet we face lesser demons we must make the most of God-given technology to spread the gospels in corners where the Devil and his footsoldiers would otherwise forbid us at pain of death 99% of muslims are Christians begging for the gospel DRIVE THE FALSE PROPHET INTO THE EARTH JESUS SAVES
>>25303 >>25304 I think the only way to do this is if there was a KJV in Arabic since the Quran sucks that if Christians made an inspired translation (and we can because by the Spirit God has granted us the ability to preach to gospel in all languages) it would prove it utterly deficient.
>>25305 doesnt matter most pakis speak english in this day and age we can convert them
>>25306 The native language of Pakistanis isn't even Arabic it's Urdu They need the gospel in their own tongue because it's never the same in a second language
