Community Guidelines SOTE.life
SOTE.life’s mission is to inspire and encourage our app’s community in their faith journey and influence the world for the better. SOTE stands for SALT OF THE EARTH. It is an expression used by Jesus to describe how he wanted his followers to live. When Jesus walked the earth there were two purposes for salt: preserving food and enhancing flavor. Preserving what is good and enhancing the lives of others should be the goal of every SOTE.life creator.
Our Community Guidelines define a common code of conduct for SOTE.life and its creators. The guidelines are based on common decency and simple principles outlined in the Bible. When creating or commenting here, use these scriptures and guidelines as your filter.
I. KEEP IT CLEAN
Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Galatians 5: 22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control
II. MAKE IT AWESOME
Remember God has given you your talents and gifts of creativity. Use them to make SOTE.life a great community that reflects our creator!
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
GO FOR IT and use the talents God has given you:
Do you see a man skillful in his work?
He will stand before kings;
he will not stand before obscure men.
In the Old Testament God gave creativity to people to build his temple. In the day we live in, that would include video production!
He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs.
III. DO THE RIGHT THING
Copyright laws protect original works from unauthorized use. This includes images, videos, and music. We encourage everyone to create and share original content. Content that infringes someone else's intellectual property rights is not allowed on SOTE.life. There are circumstances where copyrighted work may be used under certain circumstances, referred to as the “fair use doctrine”.
If in the judgment of SOTE life a post or comment violates these Community Guidelines we reserve the right to remove the post and/or user account. If you see something that you think violates our Community Guidelines, let us know by using our Reporting Link.
