We comment to learn, to express our opinions and to connect—sometimes across the world. And as Christians, we have a responsibility to comment in a wholesome, constructive manner. For commenting on lightbearers.org, we’ve summarized this responsibility in three simple principles:
If you like a post, say more than just “great post” or “I agree.” Tell us why or what resonated with you. Do you disagree? Explain why. Comments should contain original thought (more than just a quote) and stay on the subject of the original post. Off-topic comments will be removed.
Cultivate a respectful tone, especially toward those with whom you disagree. Respectful, constructive comments are approved regardless of whether moderators agree. Remember that comments are for conversation, not monologues. Lengthy comments or comments that misrepresent Light Bearers or its staff will be removed.
While we encourage you to use your real name, all personally identifiable information (contact information, location, etc.) will be removed. Your email address is required to verify you’re a real person, but we do not disclose it or use it to contact you. For security, all links will be removed from comments.
