I'd post a picture of myself. And it would be nice to see what others looked like. In most cases anyhow. :)

can we rig up a Breathalyzer test before posting?? ;D  There seems to be at least one person here Posting under the influence . . . . .

Br. Max...If we did that....you'd be the ONLY one posting on most days.   And we'd have banned BOBBY. :o

Bobby is old enough to drink? :o

Wowee - when is he going to find time to do all that ??

hmm though - I see a possible snag - umm new posts showing up as a Pinky colour [ wonder where he got that one from  :saint: ?] we already have alternate posts in 2 colours - so will that have to change ? This is not a criticism - just a thought about the practicalities of introducing a third colour.

Glad of the' link to' thingie - when you reply, sometimes hours later, it will be a help.

I have not read all the suggestions on this thread.

Has anyone suggested a forum for discussing specific passages or sections of Scripture?

I think that would be nice and perhaps even helpful.

Yes, but with a difference: we here would probably discuss the WHOLE Bible, not merely the Abridged Version.  ;D

linus: which canon? The Roman? The Coptic?  The Armenian?  I mean the prots are not the only ones with a different canon. :)

Any and all of them.

A Bible Forum would be a good place to discuss the canon itself.
