On this blog, we share our opinions with you, the reader, based on our own specific life experiences, as well as our understanding of the Word of God. To better understand the point of view that we come from when addressing particular issues, please read our “About Us” page.
While anyone is free to read our blog and comment, of course, the main focus of this blog is directed towards Christians and towards those who call themselves Christians. If you are someone who is easily offended by the free expression of opinions and viewpoints that you may not agree with, or someone who feels stressed when confronted with viewpoints that challenge your belief system, then, regrettably, this may not a good blog for you to follow or to read.
Likewise, if you are a survivor of trauma, specifically ritual abuse or mind-control agendas, please read the material on this blog with caution, taking into careful consideration your own emotional and mental state. While we do our best to not be purposefully triggering, some content may be upsetting. If you find yourself being triggered while reading through the content of this website, please stop reading and tend to your immediate needs.
Whether or not you agree with our opinions, we welcome your feedback when it is given in a respectful manner. There are a few guidelines, however.
1. Before commenting, please review our disclaimer. Any comment that does not reflect an understanding of our disclaimer will not be posted. For example, if you are asking for mental health advise, your comment will not be posted.
2. All comments are held for review. There are no exceptions.
3. We will not engage in debate in the comments section, neither will we allow others to debate. There are no exceptions. If you would like to give a lengthy response as to why you do or do not agree with our stated opinions, please send us an email via our contact form.
4. Generally speaking, we do not allow URL’s in your comments or in your signature, and they are automatically filtered by the spam filter and placed in a folder that we rarely check because we usually forget about it. This includes links to personal websites, business website, blogs, social media, product pages, et cetera. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis, and are up to our sole discretion.
5. Unless the article is specifically encouraging the sharing of such information, the comments section on this website is not a place to advertise or promote your own blog, website, business, works or products. Comments that do such will not be posted.
6. Unless the article is specifically encouraging the sharing of such information, the comments section on this website is also not the place to advertise or promote other’s blogs, websites, businesses, works or products. Comments that do such will not be posted.
7. Comments that have nothing to do with the preceding blog article, or that are rambling, incoherent, or unreasonably lengthy will not be posted. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. If you have a lengthy comment you’d like to share with us, please do so by email via our contact page.

10. While you are welcome to respectfully express your opinion and give feedback, any comment that we deem to be hateful, rude, bullying, or otherwise disrespectful to ourselves or to others will not be posted.

13. Please be careful what details about your life that you share in your comments. For example, it may not be a good idea to share details about the argument that you and your spouse got into the other night, or details of the difficulties you are facing at the moment. We aren’t likely to approve comments that are of such a personal nature, but on the chance that we do allow the comment to post, the comments are permanent and cannot be deleted by you.
14. If you change your mind about posting a comment, you can reply to the comment that you want deleted, and ask that we delete that comment for you. While we can’t make any guarantees due to miscommunication, misunderstanding, technical error, illness, or the like, we will comply to the best of our ability and as quickly as we are able.
Comments may be edited to conform to these guidelines, but generally speaking, it’s not worth the hassle. If your comments do not follow these guidelines, they will not be approved.
