1. You are a guest on this blog and your readership and participation are greatly appreciated. However, your ability to leave comments is a privilege, not a right. If all you want to do is express how much you dislike what we say here, then don’t expect us to oblige your comment by allowing it to be posted.
2. If you become a disturbance or nuisance, we are under absolutely no obligation to allow you to leave comments. Likewise, if you do not like what you read here please be aware that you are under absolutely no obligation to remain here nor are you required to return once you leave. We will not tolerate anyone who camps on this blog merely to disagree with everything that is posted here. EXTV does not need a resident troll or hall monitor to be a “counter-balance.” If this is your intention, consider taking up residency elsewhere.
3. EXTV desires for all involved in discussions and debates on our posts to conduct themselves in a courteous and civil manner. We understand that many people are deeply passionate about what they believe but please be careful to refrain from demeaning, harsh-toned, vitriolic, abrasive, coarse, condescending, snarky, vindictive, abusive, insulting, disrespectful, and mean-spirited comments.
4. This blog does not encourage, condone, or tolerate personal attacks of its contributors or other commenters. However, this does not exclude one from identifying a spade as a spade and a wolf as a wolf.
5. If you leave comments under the guise of being a true Christian, but consistently espouse ideals that are antithetical to the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith, then expect that your charade will quickly be uncovered and you will be prohibited from leaving comments. We will not provide with you a platform to spread your “Hath God said” seeds of doubt and soul-damning heresies.
6. We will not tolerate your intolerance of our intolerance. We have truly grown weary of those criticizing and judging us for criticizing and judging others.
7. If your comment contains any of the following remarks . . .“Judge not!” “Your a Pharisee, Self-Righteous, Touch not God’s anointed, then there’s a good chance your comment will not see the light of day. Although we are not averse to disagreement and debate, we do not have the time to deal with such baseless, biblically illiterate, blatant twisting of Scripture, and shallow platitudes. It’s equivalent to calling the proponent of legal immigration a “racist” without ever intellectually discussing the matter. It slyly changes the focus of the debate from the issue itself and places it onto your opponent’s character. This sinisterly clever polarization of your opponent puts him on the defense and then you think you’ve won the debate. We seriously do not have the time to play these games. Your argument should be the persuasive element to the debate, not your Orwellian-style doublespeak.
8). We are here to defend the Christian faith and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you leave a comment with links to heretical, apostate websites, do not be surprised when the links are altered or removed. We also reserve the right to add links to your comments in order to direct readers to the truth, not further errors.
If someone leaving comments on EXTV’s Blog and cannot restrain themselves from violating the above conditions, do not be surprised if your entire comment is deleted without notice (we are not responsible to just edit your comment or remove the unacceptable content). We reserve the right to hold, moderate, and delete any comments that we deem unacceptable.

Accusations of being Judgmental
One of the most common accusations against EX Ministries and EXTV is “judging” or being too “judgmental”. This stems from an improper understanding and thus an improper application of the biblical perspective. Most people use broken scripture (like broken english) as the basis of their objections without considering full counsel in the bible on judging.
There is a certain danger when we adopt the world’s reasoning and (il)logic for obedience to the will of God. The world in its sin hates the light of God’s word and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. In such a blinded condition it perceives any mention of its sins as “judgment” and will attempt to silence any voice which does not affirm its sin. Such an attitude should not be acceptable or practiced in the church. Unfortunately, the contemporary church is more and more using the way and thinking of the world without fully considering the Word of God first and foremost.
This study is for those who seriously want to understand and apply the full gospel approach to judging. The following scriptures are to help you understand that judging others and ourselves is a biblical imperative and a part of our duty as followers of Christ to help keep the church in a submissive mode to our Lord. They also give us the proper framework, motivation and purpose of judging. When we fail to follow God’s way, the lack of righteous judgment breeds pride, arrogance and immorality among the people of God.
We encourage you not to just take our word for it, but look up the scriptures listed and study them to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.
Please study : I Cor 1:10, I Cor. 6:1-5, I Cor. 11:30-31, 2 Cor 12:10, 13:5, John 7:24, 2 Timothy 2:4, Romans 14:1-13, Heb 5:14
