@jdbry it says even if you pay for the verses it doesn't apply to monetized social media accounts.

Yes, we've been through this ages ago. monetized in the TOS refers to pay walls. Steemit is not a monetized web site, it is free to view by all. Same as all the other social platforms we post to.

Just because you put a $ at the bottom of the post doesn't make it so. You may find this article interesting concerning this matter.

It is also important to note that even if case law is established that Steem is in deed a currency as defined by law. "Current legal tender". Posting here still would not violate TOS as no one is forced to pay to view.

Honestly, while I know many enjoy seeing these here, I do think the drama being stirred up around this is doing more harm than good. The Christian Community here at Steemit doesn't deserve this non-sense and frankly neither does Steemit.

These post general get around 100 upvotes, so they do have support here, but if one large enough account makes a stink about it then the other 100 likes are simply voided.

What are we to do Micheal ? Just give up and walk away ? Who's next ? We see where this is going, and we think you do too.

You are not the only 100,000 plus account that normally supports Christian content here. Yet you are the only one stepping up to at least force a discussion on the matter. But it appears you're looking for a way out as fast as possible as well.

In the end, flag wars part two is not something we care to stick around and witness.

Thanks for your support my friend.

Not really sure what you are saying. If i was doing what you are doing, I would ask the bible website, Can i, and how much. Then work from there if it was important to me.

anyway, will see what you do, wish you all the best
