  1. Here is the original post as Translated by Google since I do not know who here might be fluent enough in Spanish. Hello everyone I am Francisco I am 32 years old and since I can remember my family participates in Twi, I left this sect about 7 years ago less when I came across the page of John Juedes, with whom I have also been able to speak by phone and who directed me to a Religious Research Center. Since then I have been researching, buying some books and learning about Twi and the theological disaster and abuses committed by the high command. My question is this: How can
  2. I have deleted *some* off topic posts by both Allan and Raf, and a couple of others where the deleted posts were quoted. Obviously there are some I didn’t bother with for now at least. This stuff needs to stop and posts need to stay on topic, which is the story referenced in Rocky’s original post on the thread. Further posting which is off-topic, political or personal attacks in nature may result in the offender’s future posts needing moderator review in order to appear on GSC. Thank you.

  4. Ok folks, the book Rocky posted about does not make reference to current events. Keep the discussion on the book and its events. Delving into, or relating the book to, current events will be based on conjecture and will be biased by one's political viewpoints. Political discussion is not allowed here at GSC, further posts in that vein will be deleted. STOP! Discuss the book and what is in it. The author does not relate their experience to current events, and you won't do it here either. We will not discuss whether it was the police who have choked or shot the breath out of living souls or
  5. To clarify- This is what Waxit posted Sunday 04/19/2020 as the introduction to his other thread regarding this topic. I deleted that post for at least three reasons. 1) it was posted in the Open Forum rather than here in Doctrinal. I could have moved it, BUT... 2) He already had this thread moving lively along here, and 3) Users here at GSC do not get to dictate the comment style of others, or limit responses to those they like. Numerous scriptural replies had been made already at that time, and continue to be presented but rather than discuss why they do not apply, Waxit repe
  6. Is it possible the last name was spelled “Pavlica”? There is a person by that name on Facebook who has former TWI Connections. That person is listed as Susan Pavlica with a last name that now starts with a J
  7. Now I see the view Socks was referring to, and I didn’t mean sound like I was challenging his opinion. Thanks for the screenshot. I was explaining what I see, not making any ruling. Perhaps my use of “disagree” was too strong a word. That is why we talk about it. I was thinking of the view from my phone after I click on Doctrinal where QF is listed as a “Subforum”, just like Europe is in ABTW, and STF is in Offshoots, and those in the Prayer Forum. It is just how subforums appear in the platform. Perhaps adding another Subforum here will help?Maybe position the new one above QF? Of
  8. I think the idea has merit, and could be a very friendly part of this section. It fits as a subforum in this section, as does the existing Questioning Faith one. (For what it is worth, I disagree that QF in any way defines the Doctrinal Forum. It clearly is listed as a subforum just as STFI is nested under Offshoots) My thoughts (and just my thoughts for the purposes of this discussion): Personally I would like to see it as a place to talk about the role your faith plays in your life, what you do with it, how it affects your real life, what you do etc. I think some of you were going that
  9. Below are the forum mission, rules and purpose as posted by the owner of this site in 2008. They have served us well and at this time they still apply to all, in all areas of the forum ~~~~~~ Welcome to the GreaseSpot Café Forums! The forums are for the purpose of discussing The Way International (TWI)--and many other topics of interest. While our mission is to tell "the other side of the story" about TWI, we recognize that posters' opinions about their TWI experience range from pro to con to somewhere in between. We welcome them all. The GSC Forum Rules Be courteo
  10. Hah, nobody knows, and I think it is the Invision software not just GSC. I recall there was a problem with typing Walter Cummins name for awhile.
  11. I am uncertain what you did, or what you saw, perhaps you were trying to reply to another thread regarding Patterson? In a search I saw at least two threads with that name. One was in your own thread in the New Members forum and another that was in the Friend Tracker forum.
  12. TLC- you earlier objected to an entire post being removed and falsely assumed Raf's feelings were hurt as the reason it was removed. I remind you now of what I wrote in the quote above. It is not Moderator's job to edit what you or anyone posts. Occasionally we will take the time to do so as a courtesy, but it is not our regular procedure. It is too time consuming. Stick to the topic, argue the topic, but stop attacking other posters.
  13. A new topic was split off from this one and numerous posts from here were moved to it as the discussion had shifted away from Victor Barnard (the subject of THIS thread)
  14. Discuss the topic all you want, but attacking other poster’s character or motives will NOT be tolerated. Further posts in that vein will not be edited, they will be deleted in their entirety. If part of those posts are on topic, that part will be gone too. It is your responsibility to stay on topic and not violate our rules, not mine. Discuss, object, disagree in the thread all you want. The key is to not make it personal or about another member. Got it?
