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.

  • You Can't Master It All

    You know that embarrassment that comes when we meet mythicists who think they know something about history? The same can happen when Christians speak without knowledge just as much, and that's a far greater concern.

    Nice. I certainly agree with the thrust of the article. I do have a tangential question, though. I've heard you mention that you prefer another formulation of the Cosmological argument, before, and the mention of it in this article has certainly piqued my interest. Have you written on that particular formulation, before? If so, where might I find it?
    "[Mathematics] is the revealer of every genuine truth, for it knows every hidden secret, and bears the key to every subtlety of letters; whoever, then, has the effrontery to pursue physics while neglecting mathematics should know from the start he will never make his entry through the portals of wisdom."
    --Thomas Bradwardine, De Continuo (c. 1325)

      In-depth? I haven't. But I will give you the basic form of it.

      Everything that depends on something else for its existing requires a cause.
      The universe depends on something else for its existing.
      The universe requires a cause.

      This is true even if the universe is eternal.

        Gotcha. I don't want to derail this thread much more than I already have, but if I open a thread on this in the Philosophy forum, would you be interested in discussing it there?

          Not really. I only stick to this section and JPH's for serious discussion.
