I realy hate the fact that people here want non-christians to leave, if they want to believe, let them believe, dont exclude them. If we do, they might think: pshhh, if thats how christians want it, i dont think I really want to be one. <- thats just probably one of the thoughts they might think, they wont see the christian character in us, I just rebuke the fact that people dont want non-christians here. For example, a church. usually, non-christians are there, but when they here the good news, if they accually listened the the pastor, they would repent and dedicate there life to God.

I think we should just let them non-believers to stay here and absorb the Christian character that we have (I HOPE the rest of the members have it).

Thank you Roman for voicing a positive opinion.
As I read it I thought: "What if a non-christian comes to this group, just to see what we are like?" Then I though "...and they will know us by our signs!"
What a lousy welcome to the Christian Community if the first thing they see is: "Non-Christians Leave!"
We may lose a potential convert ---FOREVER!
Then I thought of the extents Hitler went to to have a 'pure race'! many still think only Jews were killed - but so were Priests, Nuns, the handicapped, gays and gypsies! And why --- because they weren't ayrian enough nor perfect!
So God bless you, kiddo!

thanks, both of you... I just wish we could remove the conversation "NON-CHRISTIANS PLEASE LEAVE," that would be SO much more better.

Both of you are totally right. I think if someone wants to join this group and there are clear signs that Christians are here then they might be interested in the Christian faith. Who knows they might just windup wanting to be Christians like us.

Then removed it will be. I'll try to remove it, and if it's not there any more, then success.

Alright everyone the wait is over, I have carefully made my finale decisions on our groups new guidelines. So feel free to check them out. I apologize for offending or making anyone feel unwelcome. My intentions and actions were not to display un-Christ like behavior or cause a false witness to others who visit this site. I want this site to be welcoming and encouraging for all, as well as reflecting the grace of Christ upon everyone as he did for me.

Happy building:)

I am so very proud of both you and Jasper! I prayed in church on Sunday and it looks like my prayers worked, No more discussion on one's faith - good now we can move in! And lo and behold what did I see today when I came here...but some non-vilolent models, I love the Superman "S"! BUT the BIG SURPRISE was seeing you guys named me a Group Moderator...Thank you for the honor!
I will live up to it!
