Membership Agreement
« on: September 18, 2007, 05:38:00 AM »
(This is a copy of the membership agreement that all must agree to when registering.)

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in joining The Remnant Online Fellowship. Please take the time to read this fellowship agreement.

NOT READING THESE RULES COULD RESULT IN THE LOSS OF MEMBERSHIP

Registration is limited to those over the age of 13.

Two cannot walk together unless they be agreed. There is perfect order in heaven. Our Lord desires us to strive for order while on this earth.  In an effort to do so, we have some rules. If you agree to abide by our rules below, you should tick the " I Agree" box, then click on the "register" button.

This is a PRIVATE FELLOWSHIP for members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Remnant Online is operated as a self-supporting ministry and is not directly affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

We do not solicit tithe in our effort to encourage all to support the Seventh-day Adventist Church with their tithes and offerings. We like all other ministries have needs. If you believe that God would have you support this ministry, make your support a matter of prayer and e-mail administrator@remnant-online.com to arrange for a donation.

The ministry is here to provide fellowship, encouragement, and Bible instruction for our brothers and sisters around the world. We do not provide a platform for the teaching of un-Biblical error. The authority for all doctrine that is taught will be the Bible. There is a great division within the church today. We do not subscribe to the idea that all may teach what they believe to be truth where ever they please. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is grounded in firm Bible doctrine. We will uphold the pillars of our faith which include the blessings of a messenger that was more than a prophet. The Lord has sent His people much instruction, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, and there a little. The Lord has given a lesser light to lead men and women to the greater light.

When selecting a user name which will be public, please use a real name. You are not required to use your full name. You must also provide via e-mail your full real name, the city of the church where your membership resides, and a phone number where you can be reached for confirmation. Please e-mail this information to administrator@remnant-online.com. This personal information is not a part of the web site's data information in case we are hacked. Our board software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

When the private information is received the full registration will be completed and you will be able to access the private "SDA" forums. Without the complete registration, you will only be able to access those forums that are not designated "SDA". There are some situations where the church membership requirement may be waived, but the requirement for belief in and support of the Seventh-day Adventist Church will not be waived.

Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for us to review all messages immediately or confirm the validity of all information posted. Please remember that while we do actively monitor the contents of posted messages, they may be on the board for some time before being read. We are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this ministry or the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by e-mail. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and, or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by The Remnant Online.

All posts become the property of The Remnant Online and are copyrighted. Please do not remove or altar materially the content of a message after there has been a reply unless approved by a moderator. Grammar, spelling, etc. are all right to edit.

Although The Remnant Online does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless The Remnant Online with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

We at The Remnant Online also reserve the right to (but not necessarily) reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate on this bulletin board unless otherwise designated. You may however, post the URL for your homepage in your profile provided it (the site) does not provide information contrary to the beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

There will be information of a medical nature provided and it is not intended to take the place of diagnosis or treatment by your personal physician. Please respect the position of those providing information, especially the physicians. Please make all questions of a general nature when dealing with specific diseases and conditions.

We pray this fellowship will prove to be a blessing to you as it has been to us here at The Remnant Online. May we hasten the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
