Purpose of theWord - Included add-on modules

Before downloading and reading any books found on this site, it is important to understand the spirit in which these resources are made available.

The main effort behind theWord is the effort that is put into the software itself. The compilation of add-on resources (modules) that accompany theWord is secondary. However, without these theWord is useless. It is important to understand clearly that although the choice of modules for inclusion should conform to mainstream Christian doctrines (such as the truth of the Trinity, the Divinity of Christ, etc.), yet everyone that consults them should remember that they form the words of men (however spiritual) and should be treated as such. It is also of utmost importance to diligently investigate the life and theological disposition of each author before consulting his writings. Failing to do would be naive for anyone wishing to gain a clear understanding of his writings.

It is not the purpose of this site to present to you a set of add-on modules that conform to a specific doctrinal persuasion and, indeed, many of them do contain doctrines with which I personally disagree.
The purpose of this site is to provide for free a valuable tool (the software itself) which allows you to build an electronic library of biblical resources that you can read and study, no matter if you fully agree with them or not. With this understanding, and being confident that becoming familiar with several opinions on a specific subject is always advantageous to any student of the Scriptures, the modules on this site are made available.

For the reason stated above, and since the purpose of the site is not to present to you a collection of resources that is sound in every point without exception, no official ‘Statement of Faith’ is to be found. It is obvious, however, that there are cases in which books are in clear contradiction with important and vital doctrines and these are not included. This is, of course, a subjective decision, which is unavoidable.
