The Lockman Foundation may provide some of the Forums Postings and users create
other Postings. The Lockman Foundation does not endorse, and specifically disclaims
any responsibility or liability for, any Postings posted on the Forums, whether
the Postings are provided by The Lockman Foundation or a user. The mention of
another party, product, or service on the Forums should not be construed as

or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.

FORUMS - MEMBER CONDUCT
You understand that all Postings, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted,
are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Postings originated.
This means that you, and not The Lockman Foundation, are entirely responsible
for all Postings that you upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via the
Forum. The Lockman Foundation does not control the Postings posted via the Forum
and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such
Postings. You understand that by using the Forum, you may be exposed to Postings
that are offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will The
Lockman Foundation be liable in any way for any Postings, including, but not
limited to, any errors or omissions in any Postings, any loss or damage of any
kind incurred as a result of the use of any Postings posted, emailed or otherwise
transmitted via the Forum.
You must abide by the following rules in connection with your use of the Forums:
* The Forum is not intended to provide or be a source for answering test or homework questions of those that are students. Questions asked should be from a true desire to learn and not as an easy substitute for the learning process (3/8/11).
* Postings must be Biblically based.
* Postings must not oppose the Bible's sole authority (sola Scriptura).
* Postings must be consistent with Biblical Christian doctrine (Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, Chalcedonian Creed, and Canons of the Council of Orange) (8/10/11).
* Limit content that contains known denominational biases that produce potential
strife and undue conflict.
* Do not push your denominational bias or engage in debates.
* You agree to interact with each other in a Christian spirit, with respect
* You understand that the Forum does not provide the advantage of live, personal
interaction. Therefore, the use of humor or extreme brevity in a written message
could sometimes be misunderstood and, at times, cause frustration, discouragement
or conflict with others and should therefore be avoided.
* Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that
you will know how you should respond to each person. (Colossians 4:6)
* You agree to post
only messages that relate to the subject matter and intended purpose of the
Forum as determined by Lockman.
* You agree not to post, email or otherwise transmit any Postings that are unlawful,
harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene,
libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or
* You agree not to impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise
misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.
* You agree not to post, email or otherwise transmit any Postings that you do
not have a right to transmit.
* You agree not to post, email or otherwise transmit any Postings that infringes
any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights")
of any party.
* You agree not to post, email or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized
advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam,"
"chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of

use of any Postings, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or
usefulness of such Postings. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not
rely on any Postings created by The Lockman Foundation or submitted to The Lockman
Foundation, including without limitation information in The Lockman Foundation
You acknowledge and agree that The Lockman Foundation may preserve Postings
and may also disclose Postings if required to do so by law or in the good faith
belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a)
comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOU; (c) respond to claims that any
Postings violate the rights of third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property,
or personal safety of The Lockman Foundation, its users and the public.
