    I would like to formally invite all my brothers and sisters in Christ to join a new group dedicated to Christ first and bushcraft second. In this group we share bible verses, Christian topics, discuss issues with faith, and anything bushcraft related. I personally would love to see outing posts or Christ centered activities in the outdoors. Anything goes really. Please join us.

    Just an FYI Jonathan asked me if it was cool posting this here. I don't see why not. Its not taking anything away from here giving its nature. If anything it drives more traffic to and fro.

    I just love the idea, but fact for me is that facebook with all its adverts etc. Isnt the right place to do this. Evil is lerking everywhere and trying to keep us under. Thats the thing! We brothers ans sisters in Christ must rise against those bad influences and proclamate via these sorts of multimedia. Its not for us... its for Him!

    There had been in the past, however the owners prefer to not have one. And as they pay the bills to keep the lights on so to speak they do get to decide. And I support their right and prerogative to do so. While I agree it would be nice, not my call.

    Unfortunately when it comes to social media, that's all there is. There is no social media network for Christians, the ones that are out there are very poorly put together or partially functioning. Im sure the last thing facebook wants in Christian groups, but there are A LOT of them on there. Not one yet specifically for Bushcrafters. So why not take the fight to them.

    Our group section isn't really set up for interaction like the main forum is, or facebook is. You also get no notifications. I think without them people tend to just not stop by the groups as often, and eventually bow out altogether.

    Facebook has its faults...a plenty. However use it for its functions. A bunch of folks have already joined as of this posting.

    Maybe someday some smart person will create a good Christian Social Network, and problem solved.

    I do not like sounding like a broken but I to am not on facebook.

    I once was, but the very unchristian things that kept showing up was a prime factor I got off. I am not interested in going back to such an ungodly thing. I will however NOT hold it against anyone who does.

    God bless and God speed

    As a person who doesn't know what he would be considered and may or may not believe in god, I see no problem with a group like this unless someone wants to make a problem out of it. I agree whole-heartedly with Leif's opinion.

    I like this idea! Unfortunately, like many others, I have left the social media world. I hope that those who join enjoy the fellowship of like-minded bushcrafters!

    I still have a FB account but no longer go there unless someone sends me a PM or shares something to my page. As someone who's been a moderator of a couple of groups on FB I'd recommend setting some basic rules for the group to hopefully avoid problems. When faith is discussed on social media sadly many times people with varying opinions tend to get out of hand, it shouldn't be that way... but it is. I wish you brothers the very best in this endeavor and hope the group is successful.

    Ya know at the time I started coming here to bcusa I hadn't been on FB for two years and then started back recently due to business purposes, Now I tend to use it daily so I figured why not use part of that time to talk about Christ?

    I just joined. When stuff that offends you pops up on FB, you can just go to your settings and block it.

    Faith is stronger than bad influence as good is stronger than evil. Always has been. Don't worry about FB brother! IMHO.

    I am following with interest and might be persuaded to restart a FB account for this sort of thing. Let's see what happens.

    I have read that many of us have no fb page how will something like this work. I know that the lord will work all this out. Thank for even posting this.

    I have remained on FB just to keep in touch with family and fiends overseas. I do, however, have the strictest possible settings applied and have a total of 8 "friends". I also went through the stage of getting inundated with garbage, but instead of binning my account, I got rid of those people that found it necessary to post drivel, adjusted the settings (per above), and it's OK now. I spend very little time on it and am content to receive an e-mail on my gmail account to the effect that someone has posted something. There is rarely anything worth reading, but I have just joined the above Christian Bushcraft FB group, so we'll see how it goes.

    Personally, I am extremely grateful that Christian folk can be open on here without ridicule. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for other sites, including BCUK, where the antis rule. I'm glad, too, that there is a space for open prayers and support on our forum. I know it has meant a lot to many people in need.

    Anyhoo, kudos to the OP - what a great day to bring this up. HE IS RISEN!

    Thank you for posting this. Nice idea, but I do not do face book / social media beyond maybe this and a few other forums.

    My father used to fuss about people writing on bathroom walls and always said:

    "Fools names and fools faces are always seen in public places."

    I know it was his way of teaching me to not write on bathroom walls, but it kinda took a bit more and I tend to remain private and not share my life with just everyone. No real reason, just upbringing.

    That and I know my day to day would be beyond boring to most people.

    But anything Christian cannot be all bad. I may have to rethink.

    Could / would someone be interested in starting a GROUP here on BCUSA ... not trying to take away from the OP Facebook page... just seems there may be interest here for those who don't facebook. Just a thought.
