Christianity 201 Guidelines

orthodox Christians only.

Discussion on matters of general mainstream evangelical Christian theology that do not fit within Theology 201. Have some spiritual gifts ceased today? Is the KJV the only viable translation for the church today? In what sense are the books of the bible inspired and what are those books? Church government? Modern day prophets and apostles?

This forum is primarily for Christians to discuss matters of Christian doctrine, and is not the area for debate between atheists (or those opposing orthodox Christianity) and Christians. Inquiring atheists (or sincere seekers/doubters/unorthodox) seeking only Christian participation and having demonstrated a manner that does not seek to undermine the orthodox Christian faith of others are also welcome, but must seek Moderator permission first. When defining “Christian” or "orthodox" for purposes of this section, we mean persons holding to the core essentials of the historic Christian faith such as the Trinity, the Creatorship of God, the virgin birth, the bodily resurrection of Christ, the atonement, the future bodily return of Christ, the future bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, and the final judgment. Persons not holding to these core doctrines are welcome to participate in the Comparative Religions section without restriction, in Theology 201 as regards to the nature of God and salvation with limited restrictions, and in Christology for issues surrounding the person of Christ and the Trinity. Atheists are welcome to discuss and debate these issues in the Apologetics 301 forum without such restrictions.

Additionally and rarely, there may be some topics or lines of discussion that within the Moderator's discretion fall so outside the bounds of mainstream orthodox doctrine (in general Christian circles or in the TheologyWeb community) or that deny certain core values that are the Christian convictions of forum leadership that may be more appropriately placed within Unorthodox Theology 201. NO personal offense should be taken by such discretionary decision for none is intended. While inerrancy is NOT considered a requirement for posting in this section, a general respect for the Bible text and a respect for the inerrantist position of others is requested.

The Tweb rules apply here like they do everywhere at Tweb, if you haven't read them, now would be a good time.

  • Encouragement from Psalm 2

    I found this so encouraging this morning. How often we forget that God is still in control.

    The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

    2 Why are the nations restless
    And the peoples plotting in vain?
    2 The kings of the earth take their stand
    And the rulers conspire together
    Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
    3 “Let’s tear their shackles apart
    And throw their ropes away from us!”

    4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,
    The Lord scoffs at them.
    5 Then He will speak to them in His anger
    And terrify them in His fury, saying,
    6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King
    Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

    7 “I will announce the decree of the Lord:
    He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
    Today I have fathered You.
    8 Ask it of Me, and I will certainly give the nations as Your inheritance,
    And the ends of the earth as Your possession.
    9 You shall break them with a rod of iron,
    You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

    10 Now then, you kings, use insight;
    Let yourselves be instructed, you judges of the earth.
    11 Serve the Lord with reverence
    And rejoice with trembling.
    12 Kiss the Son, that He not be angry and you perish on the way,
    For His wrath may be kindled quickly.
    How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

    Securely anchored to the Rock amid every storm of trial, testing or tribulation.

    That is a really good passage for today's nonsense.
