Comments are welcome at JGIG!
Unfortunately I did have to go to moderated comments last year when some abusive stuff came through =o( . So here’s the scoop, as it’s become evident that a Comments Policy at JGIG is long overdue:
- Please comment on issues related to a specific post. Some like to vent their frustration with this blog by picking a post and then letting loose with an ad hom tirade, not addressing ANY points in the post on which they’ve chosen to ‘comment’.
- Some who are in the Hebrew Roots/Messianic Judaism stream of thought like to pontificate on their entire belief system in the comments section. Comments are for discussion. If you have that much to say, start your own blog. I’ve gotten comments here as long as 6000 words. Seriously.
- Think of commenting as part of a conversation. Would you talk non-stop for 6000 words in a discourse? Well, maybe you would, but don’t do it here =o).
- Dissent is welcome here. Dissent will be approved. Even ad hom stuff will be approved. Just keep it of a reasonable length and at least loosely related to the content of the post on which you’ve chosen to comment.
- Obviously no abusive language or vulgar personal attacks will be entertained here at JGIG. There is no profit for anyone reading that stuff.
- No plagiarizing. If you want to quote something or use another source to make your point, that’s fine. Just cite your source.
- Comments building on the content of the post and edifying comments will be approved =o).
- Encouragement to the author also will be approved =o).
- Note that this entire page (not including the cartoon) is less than 300 words long.

- Old Testament Believers and New Testament Christians – From the Articles Page – Addresses the issue of how OT saints were ‘saved’ vs. how NT saints are saved, i.e. what salvation meant and how it was obtained before and after the actual work of Christ on the timeline. It clarifies several points that we see Law keepers bring up in debate over and over again as they misapply the phrase from Scripture, “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” and couple that with the claim that the Church (ekklesia, Body of Christ) also existed in the Old Testament. It did not, and this article clarifies the difference between OT believers and NT Christians. Excellent study. Highly recommended.
