Moderator Musical Chairs
« on: November 26, 2013, 11:52:40 AM »
Good morning denizens of OC.net!

Per the request of the affected parties, we are hereby announcing a moderator trade: the Faith Issues forum will trade Michał Kalina to the General Fora (esp. Christian News) for Mor Ephrem and a 2014 draft pick (to be named later).  Both boards seem to be pleased with the trade; agents for the affected moderators could not be reached for comment.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

This isn't going to be like that trade involving the 1962 NY Mets, where they received a catcher in exchange for a player to be named later and were so dissatisfied with the catcher that they sent him back as the player to be named later?

Who's on first, what's on second, etc....
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I note the distinct absence of "Axios" or "Axioi".  ;)
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

Boy do you have your hands full now that you're mod of Faith Issues  ;)
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
