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.

  • Book Plunge: Why Church History Matters

    My thoughts on this book by Robert Rea. http://deeperwaters.wordpress.com/20...story-matters/

    What, no mention of the first apologists, such as Justin Martyr and Quadratus?

    Augustine was incredibly important to the Reformers (as he still is to the Catholic Church); Protestants really should read him IMO. Origen, though some of his ideas were later declared heretical, first popularized writing commentaries on Scripture, and many more orthodox writers used his efforts as a starting point.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

      Couldn't cover everyone and actually, I don't think Justin Martyr got mentioned in the book either nor did Quadratus.

      But then, that could be for the same reason Chesterton in his biography of Aquinas doesn't really discuss the thinking of Aquinas so much.
