Open a new forum and call it ' Testimony Forum'
« on: September 21, 2012, 09:20:40 AM »
I have an idea. It would be better to open a new forum  called ' Testimony Forum'. In there, the Christians can share their own testimonies of GOd's love, grace, power,etc . For example, how God listens their prayers, how God is with them during their tough times, how God helps them to overcome addictions, how God heals and delivers them, etc.


I believe this can encorage and bless many brothers and sisters in Christ

And ask a bunch of anonymous people to share their deepest life stories over the Internet? There's a reason I don't go back to my early days in the Church of the Nazarene. I think this is it.

Fwiw, in the past similar threads ("praise reports") have been posted in the prayer section.

Some of what you might be looking for may be in the "Conversion Stories" sub-forum of "Convert Issues".

As some people need to post long elaborates about their personal feelings here I thought whether it'd be a good idea to create a subforum in the Private Fora for such thing. They tend to forget that their personal confessions are read by dozens of thousand of people on the internet and that would somehow protect their privacy. It'd also enable people who are not interested in reading such things not to read them.

Spreading heavily personal info on the open Internet is not wise at all.

Agreed.  And I believe we already do have such a space within the Convert Issues board, as was mentioned above.
