Deeper Waters Forum Guidelines

Notice The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

Deeper Waters is founded on the belief that the Christian community has long been in the shallow end of Christianity while there are treasures of the deep waiting to be discovered. Too many in the shallow end are not prepared when they go out beyond those waters and are quickly devoured by sharks. We wish to aid Christians to equip them to navigate the deeper waters of the ocean of truth and come up with treasure in the end.

We also wish to give special aid to those often neglected, that is, the disabled community. This is especially so since our founders are both on the autism spectrum and have a special desire to reach those on that spectrum. While they are a special emphasis, we seek to help others with any disability realize that God can use them and that they are as the Psalmist says, fearfully and wonderfully made.

      Same here!

      I find that evolution is the best proof of God.

        AP, just a thought.

        I think you are missing the actual point of the "New Atheists".

        They are not really interested in dismantling apologetic arguments, per se. Their main thrust is to reduce the 'a priori' deference that religion itself has historically held in society.

        In this regard, it looks like they are actually becoming fairly successful.

          Religion had already been marginalized enough in enough sectors. In fact, if it was a view of religion that should never be challenged, well I wanted that scrapped too. I love it when people challenge me on my religion. The problem with the new atheism is it consists of shallow pseudo-thinking. Too many atheists will read the new atheists and think they're informed on religious topics. They're not.

            Sure, but if their main purpose is to simply stir the pot, then the specifics of the spoon are fairly secondary.

            You can surely go after them for their less than satisfying specific arguments, but you must be cognizant of the general effect they are having on the conversation.

              Yes. That's in fact why I've written a blog on "Thank God for the New Atheists."
