I was banned from a forum on Friday. Has that ever happened to anyone here? John Moneypenny had a forum called Gospel For Today. It was similar to TM....very active and lively. Anyway, John finally had to close it down because of all the spammers etc. he had to contend with on a daily basis. Well, one man invited us to come to his site and I did. I quickly found out it wasn't UR, but figured they were open to the possibility because we UR people were invited there.
My first thread stated that I was UR and I used scriptures to prove it. Most people disagreed with me but we were all civil to each other. Over the past 3 months, I brought up UR topics and usually received negative replies. But, I kept chugging away hoping someone would see the truth of God's unfailing love. Seeker was always a big help in refuting many of the false beliefs being spread there.
I was told that I was teaching false teaching by the mods, but I wasn't told I couldn't continue to do so. Seeker put up a thread about the Lucifer myth and it drew lots of viewers and a few comments. Jeff, a mod, published his own thread about the lie of Universalism. He made claims about us that weren't true and were actually down right lies. Two people put up posts refuting his lies and they were taken down. After I read the article, my blood was boiling. I told Jeff he was a hypocit and liar. I told him he was afraid of truth and that's why he took the posts off. I never cussed at Jeff, although I wanted to!!! In an hour or so I was PMd a message that I was banned.
At first I was angry at Jeff for banning me without talking to me or giving me any warning. I have to use my son's computor to look at the site because they banned my IP number also.
This is my 2nd day since being banned, and I know that God caused it to happen for a much greater purpose. I kinda knew my days there were coming to an end because I had stoppped posting as much as I did at first. I was also there to give encouragment to those whose loved ones had committed suicide, because my brother killed himself 10 years ago.
I just wondered if you were banned, if you felt like I do. I have had a laughing one minute, angry the next minute type of 2 days. But there is a purpose in all things that happen to us, and sometimes we don't see it until we walk ahead and look back.
