‘Let no one who is not eager for truth and peace enter here’ (Plato)

Articles on this site express varying points of view, to encourage mature thinking on serious issues. The assumption is that you will want to study a controversial topic from various angles before you arrive at a conclusion, rather than simply believe what someone told you when you were impressionable! (So some stuff here is ‘hot’. Proceed at your own risk!). See the Statement of Faith for John Mark Ministries' theological stance.

Netiquette

From a netfriend: My mail reader does nasty things when links get too long. it’s not hard to shorten links, if you use a link shortener (http://linkfrog.net, for example). Then I would’t have to copy-and-paste all teh lines of the link. Here’s a link to netiquette articles, nicely shortened: http://linkfrog.net/daal
