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.

  • Blessed Assurance

    The question of if one is truly saved or not is one that many Christians struggle with. I was sent a resource on this by a pastor looking for reviewers. My thoughts can be found here:

    When I was struggling with this issue, it actually wasn't so much the passages like Matthew 7 that bothered me. It was more the first few chapters of Revelation, where Jesus wrote to the church members and implied that so many of them were not cutting it despite outward appearances.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

      Those are frightening too, although usually Matthew 7 is the one I hear the most about.

        My mother in law's pastor uses those verses to frighten her, as well. The verses are powerful because they explicitly say few are righteous enough to be saved. It's difficult to be saved.

        The head trip that puts on people is almost incomprehensible.
