Terms of Service

This Agreement was last modified on July 02, 2019.

Please read these Terms of Service completely using christiannetguide.info which is owned and operated by ChristianNetGuide. This Agreement documents the legally binding terms and conditions attached to the use of the Site at christiannetguide.info.

By using or accessing the Site in any way, viewing or browsing the Site, or adding your own content to the Site, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service. Our terms of service consists of two parts: a Scope Statement and Conditions of Participation. The Scope Statement governs who may participate in  this site, and the Conditions of Participation governs what may be done on the Site.

 

Scope Statement.
ChristianNetGuide is a platform that exists to serve  and connect local Christian communities. Only Christians are permitted to participate, and those who participate do so with the understanding that all editorial and moderation functions will be according to the principles of Biblical, Historic Christianity. The following documents will present a good snapshot of the definition of Christianity that ChristianNetGuide is using:

 

Apostles Creed

1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:

3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:

4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:

5. The third day he rose again from the dead:

6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:

7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:

8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:

9. I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints:

10. The forgiveness of sins:

1l. The resurrection of the body:

12. And the life everlasting. Amen.

 

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Apostolic and Nicene Creeds affirm what beliefs are essential for salvation, and are universally affirmed by the various Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, and Evangelical faith communities. ChristianNetGuide also affirms belief in Divine inspiration as full verbal plenary inspiration, in  providential preservation of the Scriptures, and that the Scriptures is publicly interpret-able by any born again  believer. The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and Chapter One of the Westminster Confession of Faith expound views of Scripture that ChristianNetGuide deems authoritative to its definition of a Christian.

The definition of Christianity that ChristianNetGuide uses recognizes only two fundamental human identities: The common identity of each and every human being as the imago dei (image of God) and the common identity of all genuine Christians in Christ. The belief in any other identity as fundamental puts one outside of the scope of what ChristianNetGuide recognizes as Christianity.

This would include belief in any theory that posits that racial identity is more important that the identity in the imago dei or the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians.

This would include belief in any theory that posits that sexual identity is more important that the identity in the imago dei or the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians. The Nashville Statement can be considered authoritative guide to which conception of sexuality one can hold to and still be within the scope of what ChristianNetGuide considers a Christian

This would include belief in any theory that posits that national or political identity is more important that the identity in the imago dei or the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians.

This would include belief in any theory that posits that racial identity is more important that the identity in the imago dei and the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians.

This would include belief in any theory that posits that socio-economic identity is more important that the identity in the imago dei and the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians.

This would include belief in any use of critical theory or its subsets as a world view or framework for giving meaning to identities as all such approaches to identity necessarily posit the existence of other identity(ies)  is/are  more important that the identity in the imago dei and the identity in Christ shared by all true Christians.

Essential to Christianity is the idea that only Christ is King of the world. Any view that promote “theocracy” by an means others than soliciting the personal and direct action of Christ on the world stage is outside the scope of what ChristianNetGuide recognizes as a Christian. This also means that promotion of anything resembling the New World Order, one world government, or global governance is outside the scope of what ChristianNetGuide recognizes as a Christian.
