No board for chatting with the staff, so I'm putting this here . In my thread How the Serpent Became Satan, am I now prohibited from posting?

I requested in the thread that it be removed due to the animus that had entered in. I don't want to be responsible for inviting what dwells here to find another thread to inhabit. Since it wasn't removed, am I now not able to post? I have some very cordial and positive replies there that I would like to respond to and thank for their support.

Thank you for your help.
God Bless

A thread can only be deleted if an admin is online, and even then, only at their discretion..

A mod deleted my thread Stand Your Ground only a few hours after I created it. Apparently it caused animus for a certain few who used it as their own personal battleground for hashing out their views and misconceptions.

That's precisely why I wanted my thread deleted. You got lucky. Mine's still that battleground. But I can't post in it so as to respond to the civil replies, and correct one that is hostile and slanderous, so I posted my own thread to that effect; replied to posts in that thread that I excerpted for that purpose.
I started the thread, it isn't deleted, but now I can't post? That doesn't seem right. Boards do have glitches at times. It's the stuff of the Net I guess. :( Bad Net, no soup for you! :p:LOL:

makes me curious about that thread tourist.
It's a great article, speaking as the one that posted it.
It wasn't my intention to invite dark rebuke from the usual suspects. Rather, it was my intention to advance the discussion concerning the Serpent in Genesis that is underway in a different thread in BDF.

It has long been known that the Jews did not, do not, have a Satan in their Bible as we understand the adversary to be in our own New Testament teachings.
I find that fascinating, the evolution if you will, of the literature from early centuries as there are debates still as to when the texts that are the Hebrew bible came to be.

"There is abundant biblical and extra-biblical evidence that Moses wrote the Pentateuch during the wilderness wanderings after the Jews left their slavery in Egypt and before they entered the Promised Land (about 1445–1405 BC)."

And Don Stewart with BlueLetterBible.org explains,



"The books were probably recognized individually. The books after Moses were written by a number of different people during a one thousand year period. Most likely, they were individually recognized as being canonical. When the recognition that the prophetic gift had been removed from the nation (about 400 B.C.) these writings were then put into clearly defined divisions. The Old Testament Scripture was probably collected by Ezra.
...
The sacred writings were always placed in the temple. First century writer Flavius Josephus tells us that the sacred writings were kept in the temple in Jerusalem before its destruction in A.D. 70. This is consistent with the recorded episode of Hilkiah discovering the Book of the Law in the temple during the reign of King Josiah (630 B.C.). When all the evidence is considered we have a consistent testimony to the existence of sacred writings from the time of Moses until the time that the second temple was destroyed in the year A.D. 70."
Source for quotes excerpted above

I love to study the history of the word. I posted that thread for those who are of the same mind. So that we can expand our understanding and horizons in our personal study of Soteriology, Apologetics, Bibliology, or whatever discipline holds our attention.

If you choose to enter into the thread, How the Serpent Became Satan, I think it would be grand to add civil discourse to what was assailed immediately by that which holds ranker for what they do not understand, nor respect.

It's easy to cheat and look it up. But, most people seem to think it has to do with an old American mobster.

What thread is it? Perhaps you can't respond to your own thread because it's a closed thread and no one can respond. That happen another thread of mine, Jungle Room, that was closed after a run of several weeks. You can still view it but you can't respond. I guess that it was too controversial.

OK, I located the Serpent thread you created and it is still open. Must be a glitch of some sort.
