What types of submissions are accepted?

Acceptable submissions take a variety of forms. We are looking for sermons, sermon notes and bible studies. Your submission can be in form of a transcript, notes, or outline. The focus and organiziation of the submission must be apparent. A general criteria for inclusion is whether or not the submission will contribue toward the construction of quality sermons and bible studies. Theology Website maintains the right to decide whether a submission does not meet our explicit and implicit standards.

What if I see a mistake which needs correcting after my sermon is on-line?

If there is a typo or incorrect bible passage in your on-line sermon, you may email us at Sermons@TheologyWebsite and inform us of the error. Make sure include an adequate description of the location of the error and the requested correction. We will make the change as soon as we are able. If your sermon requires more than one or two edits, please resubmit the edited sermon along with a note informing us that you are sending a revision. Please also make sure you tell us which sermon you are updating.

How do I remove my sermons from the database?

Just let Theology Website know of your desire to remove your sermons by emailing your request to Sermons@TheologyWebsite. Make sure to adequately describe which sermon(s) you are referring to. We will promptly remove your sermon from the database. Whereas we literally delete your removed sermons, you will need to re-submit it if you thereafter change your mind.

How may I use these sermons?

You are free to use these resources in the development and construction of your own sermons and bible studies. If you read or copy from sermon transcripts the original author's views/comments, or use a documented illustration you SHOULD give mention where mention is due. These sermons are not intended to replace one's own study and formulation of sermons and bible studies.

Who do I contact regarding particular sermons if I have an inquiry?

If your question in any way involves content, opinion, commentaries, biblical passages, etc appearing in a sermon, you must contact the author of the sermon. In most cases, this contact information will be prominently displayed beside each sermon. If your question regards a technical issue involving the sermon's location within Theology Website, please contact us at Sermons@TheologyWebsite. If you feel that the theology advocated by a particular sermon is significantly* questionable, please inform us at Sermons@TheologyWebsite.

*Significant here refers to sermon statements or implications which contradict traditional or fundamental interpretations of God, Christ, Salvation and the Church. We do not consider "significantly questionable" issues those pertaining to: the Calvin-Arminius debate; the sermon's view of the millennium or rapture; the sermon's stance on verbal inerrancy or book authorship.
