We want the EagleHub to represent Jesus Christ well and to be a fun, respectful, “real”, and honest community where believers can connect and grow together in their walk with Jesus. This is a community where we adhere to Jesus Christ’s teachings and principles. This is a community where we gently correct, call sin for what it is, help one another to live repentant lives, and aim to grow and mature to become more like Christ. If you are not interested in being humble, growing in Jesus and receiving constructive and gentle corrections when needed, and if you are not interested in keeping our community guidelines then please do not join this community.
Our core principles for this community:
1) Be Christ-like
Luke 9:23 (NLT) - Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me.
Being Christ-like means you don’t live for yourself but rather for God. Jesus demonstrated this principle, John 5:19 (NIV) - Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself; He can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. Jesus lived in surrender, doing the will of Father God. This means that as a follower and true disciple of Christ, you do the same by surrendering yourself every day to the workings of the Holy Spirit in you. Allowing the Lord to change you, cutting more away of your fleshly nature so that your spirit man can become stronger. This is achieved through obedience, repentance and surrender to God’s will and way in your life. You live for God and not for yourself.
John 8:11 (NIV) -...Go and sin no more.
Jesus said to the woman caught in the act of adultery that He didn’t condemn her, but she should go and sin no more. 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV) - For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. Jesus never sinned. However, many have mistaken Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross as a “grace” ticket to keep on sinning. We see in scripture that Jesus never advocated a lifestyle of sin, but rather a lifestyle of holiness and righteousness. Jesus’ constant message was to repent and to live for God. Jesus didn’t ignore or accept sin, He rather addressed it and encouraged people to turn away from sin. What this means is that we in this community do not willingly participate in sin anymore, but rather we “go and sin no more”.
Matthew 11:29 (NKJV) - Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Being Christ-like means being humble, lowly in heart, and gentle. 2 Timothy 2:24-25 (ESV) - And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth. Being prideful, selfish, self-absorbed, self-promoting, harsh, quarrelsome, hard, pressing, back-stabbing, gossiping and defaming others are not Christ-like. There is no room in this community for such behaviour. Jesus said in 1 John 4:20 (NIV) - Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. Be humble. Patiently listen when someone brings you correction and then gently address the matter if they are out of line. Likewise, when you see a brother or sister in sin, do not go and splash it all over the news feed or timeline, but rather go to them personally and gently bring a word of correction. Always correct how you would want to be corrected and how Jesus corrects you. Always be kind as everyone faces a battle that you know nothing of.
1 John 4:7-8 (ESV) - Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Being Christ-like means loving others. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV) - Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. Loving others does not mean you have to let people “walk” over you. Jesus loved everyone, but He stood firm in His convictions, and He did not let people use Him as a doormat. You can love without being “used”. Do not “use” one another on this platform. Do not “guilt-trip” Ambassadors into needing to meet your needs. Jesus is the Source of all your provision and needs. Do not put a yoke on others that you yourself are not willing to carry.
2) Be respectful
Acts 17:26 (ESV) - And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place.
Being respectful means that you recognise that God created all people from every tongue and every nation. They all belong to God. There is no room in this community for racism or discrimination against anyone because of their history, their background, their upbringing, their culture, their language, their skin colour, or their nationality.
Galatians 3:28 (NIV) - There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Being respectful means you recognise that there is equality in God’s eyes. God does not favour men higher than women. Both are equal in His eyes as He created both of them in His own image and God uses both for His Kingdom expansion. There is no room for discrimination in this community.
Ephesians 5:3 (NIV) - But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.
Being respectful means there is no room in this community for sexual harassment, seduction of members in the community, practicing adultery, promotion and practicing sexual immorality of any kind, crude humour, indecent and inappropriate behaviour, remarks or language. We will not tolerate the active practice or promotion of such behaviours. Everyone comes from different backgrounds and sin in their lives. The EagleHub is a place where we help one another to repent and turn from such sins and behaviour. If you have no intention of repenting and turning away from sexually immoral sins and behaviours, then please don’t join this community. We welcome you if you want to change and leave your sin behind, but we will not tolerate wilful continued practicing of sexual immorality on this platform.
Romans 14:1 (NLT) - Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.
Being respectful means that you recognise that everyone is at a different level on their spiritual journey with Jesus. We are here to help one another grow, and not to pass judgment on who’s viewpoint is right or wrong, or whose is better. Have constructive and respectful conversations and feedback, but do not quarrel or strife with one another. If you come across teachings or conversations that are not in agreement with God’s Word, then don’t go “smearing the person’s name” or post harsh comments. Instead, privately message them with gentle and loving corrections. If they don’t listen, then talk to two Ambassadors about it, and then the three of you go privately to the person to bring gentle loving correction to the person. If they then still don’t turn away from contradicting God’s word, then you can post on the news feed and timeline for other members to read and respond to help bring gentle correction. Remember, no person says or does everything right 100% of the time. Show grace and mercy as you want to be shown grace and mercy. It is important not to turn a blind eye when things are out of context, it needs to be addressed, but it needs to be addressed in a respectful and loving manner.
Ephesians 4:29 (ESV) - Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Being respectful means not having swearing, curse words, sarcasm, gossiping, lies, deception, inappropriate remarks, arrogant, distrustful, harsh and harmful words in the community. Use appropriate and respectful words and language at all times.
1 Corinthians 14:40 (NIV) - But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
Being respectful means, we don’t “talk over” one another. Don’t be interruptive but allow others to speak and share their thoughts and opinions. Wait until they have finished talking before you share your thoughts and opinions.
3) Be Trustworthy
Amos 5:21 (NLT) - “I hate all your show and pretense - the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies.
Being trustworthy means you do not create a “fake profiles” or share fake details about yourself or others. It also means that you do not pretend to be someone else, steal, share or copy content that does not belong to you or that you don’t have permission to share.
Romans 13:10 (NIV) - Love does no harm to a neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Being trustworthy means doing no harm to another. Do not plot, conspire, or do any harmful action towards another. Do not commit or promote illegal action on this platform. Any behaviour or action that is done in an untrustworthy manner and that leads to harm to others will not be tolerated in this community.
