Getting started guide.
This is a guide to help you get started in the At the time of writing this the is just a forum so this getting started guide is, currently, written just for the forum. If grows outside of the forum the guide will be modified to suit.

What do I need to do before I start using this forum?
There are 3 things you need to read before you do anything and they are, the Rules, the Statement of Faith, and the Open Bible, and Derivative Works, License. If there is anything in these 3 pages you do not agree with but you want to join you are asked to remember these are the agreements you acknowedge when you do actually join.

OK, I've read the Rules, the Statement of Faith, and the Open Bible License, and agree to them what do I need to do now?
To help you navigate you way around the forum it may be a good idea for you to read the How this forum is setup thread because the forum is not setup like other Christian forums. Reading this will help you learn how to navigate not only forum but also the original Hebrew Canon which we call the Old Testament. is setup with God's Word at its core, everything flows from the Bible so studying the Bible is of the utmost importance. Archaeology, Anthropology, Doctrine, etc are all Man made constructs. The Bible is God's Word, so it remains the focus of this site.

Right, I've read how the forum is setup what now?
The next thing you are asked to look at is the Resources section. There may be resources that you did not know about but were going to ask about. There may also be resources you do know about that are not listed in the resources section. If that is the case please feel free to make a suggestion in the Suggestions section.

I've looked at the lists of resources, is there anything else I need to do?
There is one last thing you should do before you post anything on forum and that is pray. Pray for the Spirit to lead you, pray for wisdom, and pray that you may be a light to others. After you have done this please feel free to join in.
