PostSubject: Room Rules for our Guest ( Updated 12-23-09 )   Wed Feb 04, 2009 6:49 pm

Welcome every one!!!!


We have made this page of the forum to help you all understand our rules. So take a look.


Updates 12/23/09 : Added "Deliverance" in chat






Room Rating G:


We are a G rated room. This means no Foul or perverted speech and or Nicknames
We do not allow ADULT content of ANY KIND. Remember G rating is for GENERAL Audience's And this means our content is suitable for adults, teens and young children.



Asking for Money in the Room

Wow oh Wow, Folks, Thank you for bringing this to my attention..

There is to be Absolutly NO asking for Money in the room, In PM's or on our Forum.
There is nothing wrong with some one wanting to finanially bless you. But they will contact
you for that blessing. I can not and will not and do not want this to happen.. and there are some
Reasons I would share with you why.

The Word Tells us Some interesting things.. Read with me
Romans 2:11 "For God does not show favoritism."
James 2:1 My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism"
Acts 10:43 "Then Peter began to speak: "…God does not show favoritism…"

If i allow room members to ask for money, the in accordance with the word of God, i would have to allow
Muslims, Atheist, and all sorts of other's to enter our room and also ask for money.
Aside from my personal concern with this practice the simple truth is, I would not allow those people
To ask for money in our room, and there for need to clearly state that I do not want any one asking for
Money in the Room, In PM's or in the Forum..


Private Message Rules


Please note that this rule applies to all members of the room . Admins Included.

There is to be NO sending of a Private message without first asking. Ask in the room
May i pm you.... Wait for a yes and then feel free to pm some one.






Links (Posting Links) Rules:


When it Comes to links we ask that our Visitors and Members ask the Admins prior to posting the links.
We have this rule do to the amount of inappropriate Content on some links. "but you know me" yes we do
however if we break this rule Just because we know you, Then we are in deed showing Favoritism, which God's
Word tells us NOT TO DO.





Cams (webcam) :


We allow people to use their cams. However, If the Cam displays material that is clearly not G rated, we will dot you. We may or May not report such actions to Paltalk for a TOS violation.





Mic (Microphone) Rules:


We Enjoy people on the mic. Its fun to hear the voice behind the name. Rules are..
3-4 minutes if hands are up. if no hands are up try to limit yourself to no more then 4-5 minutes.. You can play music, pray or just talk. But lets keep it clean.





Music Rules:


We allow only CHRISTIAN music to be played at the mic. Worship, General Music, or the like. Non Christian music is not allowed as we are a christian room who's focus is Jesus Christ.





Fights, Debates, Arguments :
Fights
If at any time a fight breaks out, Admins will step in. Our way of handling this is described in the the bible... read with me..
Quote :
Matthew 18:15-20

15 If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault, between you and him
privately. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.

16 But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every
word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

17 If he pays no attention to them [refusing to listen and obey], tell it to the
church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a
pagan and a tax collector.

Our Goal is to see brothers and sisters in the lord work past the problem and grow. So we turn to the bible to deal with the issue. Admins will Invite the 2 party's into a private chat to try and resolve the issue. ALSO.. i would like to explain vs 17.

The meaning of this is, cease to have religious contact with him, or to acknowledge him as a Christian brother. It does not mean that we should cease to show kindness to him and aid him in affliction or trial, for that is required toward all people; but it means that we should disown him as a Christian brother, and treat him as we do other people not connected with the church.

Two good sites that explain this process in greater detail can be found by clicking
Here Or Here




Debates

So your in the room and some one says something you dont like. Can you challenge them on it? well sure.. the bible says "Iron sharpens Iron" and there is nothing wrong with trying to understand Gods word. But HOW you do it is most important. There is no need for any of the following examples ..
"you retard. You dont get it. your just lost.. what should i expect from you" putting people down and insulting them shows that you are not acting in the right manner. If we are going to debate to help our brothers and sisters be at peace and "speak" kindly.



Arguments

Arguments are not helpful. Our room is not for arguments or fighting, Please see another room if thats what your looking for.We do debate but in a way that is NOT about arguments, insults or fighting.

WE FOLLOW THE PALTALK TOS.. please visit
http://www.paltalk.com/terms.html to re read them

Those who violate the TOS, will recieve a warning. A second Violation will result in a Dot, and a reminder Warning.. A 3rd time and you will be bounce you from the room for 24 hours.


Finally
Quote :
But you dont know what i know. You dont know them. There Lost They dont know Christ"

Recently this was said to one of the admins and I would like to reply to this mode of thought which comes up durring an argument,debate and fight.

Read With me....

Quote :
Mark 9:37-42 (Amplified Bible)

37Whoever in My name and for My sake accepts and receives and welcomes one such child also accepts and receives and welcomes Me; and whoever so receives Me receives not only Me but Him Who sent Me.

38John said to Him, Teacher, we saw a man who does not follow along with us driving out demons in Your name, and we forbade him to do it, because he is not one of our band [of Your disciples].

39But Jesus said, Do not restrain or hinder or forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in My name will soon afterward be able to speak evil of Me.

40For he who is not against us is for us.

41For I tell you truly, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to and bear the name of Christ will by no means fail to get his reward.

42And whoever causes one of these little ones (these believers) who acknowledge and cleave to Me to stumble and sin, it would be better (more profitable and wholesome) for him if a [huge] millstone were hung about his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.

You may not Agree with the person, like John didnt agree with that man. But use care before opening your mouth to say some thing harsh. God Uses whom he chooses and even if you dont like the person, or what they are saying, if they are professing Christ, and Truly believe what they are saying, pray before you speak to them. least you offend and wound them, causing them to stumble...




Trouble With Admin's


So what do you do when the trouble is with an admin Josh?
Ok Folks, heres the deal. If you have a problem with one of our Admins heres what i would like to ask of you.

1) Save a copy of the room text in the RTF format.
2) Please Send me an IM here about the Issue.
Add me to your pal list, I will contact you with in
24 Hours to view the file you saved and go over
The issue with you

or
3) Visit http://www.echothefaith.com/contact And leave us
a message there.




Personal Comments durring Trouble

This is a simple matter.. Some one gets offended makes a comment in the room.

Folks Read above on how we handle issues in the room. IN ACCORDANCE OF THE WORD.
I dont want to see personal attacks, putdowns or pot shots in the open text.
PM the person to talk about the issue if that does not work pm another admin to join
you in a pm with the person, or PM joshuajared2000.

Public attacks, putdowns, pot shots and comments made durring trouble such as "GET a GRIP" or other comments said DURRING a trouble time, will need to be kept out of the room or users will be dotted"




Youth In the Room


It has been brought up, a concern by some, about youth being in the room. I hope this rule
Will deal with this issue and allow us to move forward in Christ our Lord.

According to the paltalk Terms of Service, Any one over the age of 13 needs a parents permision
to use Paltalk. Given that standard I am going to say this. If a Youth is online, they are doing so, According
to the Terms of Service, With their parents permission. So!, With them having permission to use paltalk,
I am Confident in saying they have my full support and my permission to enter our room at any given time.




Deliverance Ministry in Chat Rooms:
While we recognize and accept the act of Deliverance, we also recognize that every case of it in the bible
was a personal case. Jesus was always with the person in person. we there for have resided to follow
his example, and none other. While we understand the wonder of this ministry, we do not at this time feel
that the ministry of deliverance is ment for a room full of people.




Colored Text in Chat Rooms:
It has been an issue more then once. And while we thought that this issue was already addressed it seems our post on this issue has been accidentally removed. So here it is once again..

The Neon and Red colors.

we are asking people to stop using these in the room for a few reasons

1) They can cause headaches
2) If used fast enough they can cause seizures
3) They are often used for attention getting

The Bible tells us such things as "love does no harm to their neighbor" and "To make all effort to live in peace with all men" Hebrews 12:14. Knowing that these colors are offensive Let us turn them off and to move forward.
The Book of Philippians made such powerful statements such as "BE ye kind one to the other".

WE know these colors offend, WE know they are used to bring trouble.. know, I understand there is a way to turn off all colors. But to ask many people to turn of their colors so you can enjoy using one you know is a problem seems truly one sided and not an action that describes walking in love.

It is there for the decision of the room owners to officially ask that the use of these colors come to an end.
There are many colors available to people to use , to make their post clear, visible and easy to be seen.

The Lord calls us to MATURE in our walk with the lord, and being petty and argumentative over a color
is a hindrance to our Walk in the Lord. ITs time to move on, Grow up, and Mature as Christians.

Let me leave you with some meat from Gods word.....

2 Peter 1:5-9 (New International Version)

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
