His-Lordship Charter and Introduction
What is his-lordship? It is an electronic community or kinship
of people who are actively seeking to give God "Lordship" in a
seemingly out-of-control area of their lives. It is intended as a
"safe" place where people encourage and support each other, as well as
a place where we can learn together who to put an area of our lives
under His Lordship.
To start, this list focuses primarily on diet/eating and fitness. [This
is not a "weight loss group" per sae. But many of the members here may
be working to get their body (the temple of the Holy Spirit) into better
shape, and that could very well involve weight loss goals.]
This list is implemented differently than the other GodSpeak lists because
it uses a message board for the majority of the member interpersonal
communication and community building. The email list itself is reserved
more to dispense helpful information and announcements, and hopefully
one day as a platform to send weekly lessons or inspiring testimonies
from. So, in addition to subscribing to this list (which you need to be
on to receive some of the information you will need), you must also join
the his-lordship message board at:
- It must be biblical. Any post (prophecy, teaching, or advice) that
contradicts the Bible is assumed to be in error... period.
The Bible remains our absolute authority.
- No discussion will be permitted in this conference which questions
the basics of the Christian faith... they are assumed fundamental
and agreed on by all participants. These fundamentals include: God
exists as an intelligent and self-aware Being (as opposed to an
impersonal force). God created mankind to be in fellowship with
Him, but man sinned and this separated us from that fellowship
with Him. Jesus Christ is God incarnate, Who became human lived
among us and taught us and then died for our sins (because the
penalty of sin is death and someone had to pay it). Jesus Christ
then rose from the dead, forever conquering sin and death. He
ascended into heaven and will return again to the earth to reign
forever. In the mean time, Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit to
indwell believers and to transform us into the image of Christ.
The same indwelling Holy Spirit also imparts spiritual gifts into
those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord. This includes the
gifts of physical healing, as per 1 Cor 12:9, which is still active
in the Church today.
- The his-lordship email list is NOT a place to post "please pray for
me" types of requests. However, the message board associated with
this list does have a board dedicated to prayer requests. You may post
prayer requests and answered-prayer praise reports on the message
- Posts must be on topic. There is a wide range of on-topic for
learning to bring an area of our life (such as our eating or exercise)
under His lordship. You may ask how-to questions, you may ask
theological questions that pertain directly to putting an area of your
life under His Lordship, or you
may share experiences. However, This is NOT a forum to discuss or
debate or theologize biblical prophecy, or to raise theological debates
regarding unrelated topics. It is a how-to, learning
and practice group for those who have started trying to put an
area of their life under His lordship. It is also intended as a
community to encourage and support each other as we learn to walk
out His lordship out in our day-to-day lives.
- Participants must be polite and respectful and loving at all times.
It is OK to disagree with someone and to express that disagreement,
but it must be done in love and in a polite and civilized manner.
No flaming or personal attacks are allowed. In fact, no attacks on
any Christian leader or organization or denomination or move-of-God
are allowed, period.
- If you can't find a way to say it in love and in a gentle manner,
then perhaps it should not be said. Openly hostile posts will not
- This list (and especially the message board interactions) will build
community and is a place to support and encourage each other and to
build each other up on our gifting. However, this is not a support
group for emotional or mental problems, and is not a place to dump
problems that are unrelated to putting areas of our life under His
- Realize that from time to time, someone will make a mistake or share
ideas that are in error. Remember that this is a learning forum and
that making mistakes is part of the natural learning process. Therefore,
we give each other -- and ourselves -- the grace to make mistakes and to
learn from them. We will not disqualify someone else (or ourselves) if
they make an occasional mistake, providing they act in love and that
they behave in accordance with the his-lordship charter. However, we
encourage the list-members to have a teachable spirit and to
receive feedback and maybe even gentle correction with humility.
Remember that the character of a believer is every bit as important
as the giftings that they move in.
- If someone posts something that you disagree with or find unbiblical,
do not post a hasty rebuttal in anger. Instead spend some time to
pray about it and ask the Lord to show you an appropriate and loving
way to phrase your reply.
Violation of the charter will result in a warning. Repeat violation of
the charter could result in being removed from the conference and banned
from the message board.
