Yonah1 and others,
The reason I don't have a forum for doctrinal discussions has nothing to do with keeping alternative views being brought forth. On the broadcast every week I purposely sit in the hot seat and let others question me and bring forth their viewpoints...so I'm not afraid of other opinions.
I simply do not have the time and energy to keep up on all the forum posts (you have to read every single one of them to be effective) and deal with all the drama that comes with banning people who violate guidelines.
This web site gets a lot of traffic and such forums attract arrogant people who like to argue...and it wouldn't take long for it to take up a ton of my time. I let it get out of hand before and I don't want to go there again. At times, the forums became the armpit of EliYah.com which caused newcomers to stumble. I don't want to see that ever again.
Thanks for your understanding.
Your fellow servant,
