While it is true that members cannot delete, they can update or modify. Two options for this are:

1. use the quote option and add or subtract what you want to edit or modify.

2. use the reply option and edit or modify.

In both cases it would be wise and prudent to add text saying what you are doing, so people don't get confused.
Of course the old post will still be there, but if you make it clear that you are editing or modifying it, there should be no confusion.

There is the option of asking a mod to edit. It might seem to be a bit of a pain, but it is an option. Just FYI. (and I agree with Salyan - we need to be careful not to post something we'll regret later anyway)

Thanks for the update, I will need to be more careful what's posted, and don't tell anyone that I once was a alter boy.  😁

I will add that if it is past the 24 hours to edit and a member feels strongly about removing something that is embarrassing/posted in the flesh, that we have no problem editing and/or removing the thread if necessary.

The whole point is that it was abused in the past and this is how we decided to handle it going forward.

I am not knocking you for something from your past - but wanted to ask if this was a joke or if it really was part of your background? If so, are you a Catholic or Anglican? I am wondering if this is perhaps why there is such a difference in your understanding or in some of your positions? Or perhaps it is a matter of not being saved very long (or not being seriously into the Bible until recently). I know we have clashed a bit recently (as well as with another poster or two), not understanding where you are coming from, so was just trying to figure some things out. I am not knocking you - though if you are from an unsound doctrinal background or not solid church, it would definitely be good to keep digging into the Word of God and doing your best to seek what the Lord has to say on doctrine, etc.

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

I am sorry for the confusion, I am a man of God. I got Saved in 1986. In a Independent Baptist Church. I’m not confused, and understand that Christ, is in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament.

I just checked one of my past posts from September 30th and there is an edit button. I clicked it just to see and it seems I could edit the post if I wanted to. Although, I am using my laptop, perhaps the layout and options are different if you're on a phone or using an app?

I use 'Edit' from the drop down after clicking the three dots in the upper right corner.

One thing I would like to see again is individual's ability to freeze further comment on their own thread. Kind of a self-moderating ability when things begin to drift off course or dive into an argument.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
