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.

        An achievement that several in the government there almost seem to be proud of.

          Covid tickets continue to be dropped by Crown

          The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is pleased to announce that four more Public Health Act tickets issued to individuals in Alberta and Saskatchewan for the exercise of their Charter rights have been dropped by Crown prosecutors.

          The Justice Centre represents hundreds of individuals all across Canada who have, among other things, been ticketed for allegedly breaching public health orders by participating in peaceful protests, uncovering their faces when doing so is outlawed, attending church, providing services during lockdowns, receiving friends and family into their homes, exercising their right to enter and leave the country, and refusing to post government propaganda Covid signage.
          Some good news.

            • We spent two days driving around Calgary in our Shame on Shandro billboard truck drawing attention to the double standards and hypocrisy of politicians in Alberta. You will likely recall that Tyler Shandro was caught allegedly violating COVID restrictions in the Sky Palace.

              He faced no consequence for his actions, despite the fact that his Health portfolio's COVID rules have swept up others, including Pastor Artur Pawlowksi and Pastor Tim Stephens, to name a few.

              You can see the recap of our first day on the billboard truck here.

              Thousands saw the Shame on Shandro truck as we crisscrossed the city. We made frequent stops to get reactions from people, both to the arrest of pastors and to the lack of consequences for Shandro and others in Jason Kenney’s inner circle. Many were appalled that a pastor would be arrested for gathering to worship, others seemed to relish the idea, particularly in the more ‘progressive’ parts of the city.

              The vast majority agreed that the double standard of politicians facing no penalties while pastors and business owners face fines and jail was an injustice.

              Despite the arrests of numerous pastors in Calgary making headlines worldwide, shockingly, many Calgarians were not even aware that a pastor is currently being held in jail.

              Things have become so dire that Missouri Senator Josh Hawley called on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom to consider adding Canada to their watch list. Senator Hawley mentioned the arrest of Pastor Tim Stephens and our footage of the arrest in his letter of concern.

              The world is watching this story, but many Calgarians are either unaware or apathetic. This indifference is what makes it possible for politicians to get away with this hypocrisy. That is why we took to the streets to shed light on their shameful conduct.

              • The fences are down,

                https://www.rebelnews.com/update_gra...ource=therebel

                The fences came down at GraceLife Church west of Edmonton on Tuesday, two days early.

                The church is slated to be returned to its congregation after it was seized by the province on April 7.

                The property has been segregated behind three layers of fencing and was guarded by private security guards, after the church and its pastor, James Coates, refused to comply with the province's public health restrictions on places of worship. At the time of the confiscation of the church, places of worship were restricted to 15 percent of fire code capacity, as well as masking and social distancing requirements.

                GraceLife garnered international attention after Coates turned himself in for refusing to force his congregation to follow health restrictions that he says violated his Charter rights to freedom of expression, religion, assembly and conscience.

                While Coates qualified for bail to be released from Edmonton's high security Remand Centre, he was unable to agree to sign conditions of release that required him to follow health regulations.

                Since the seizure of the church, GraceLife's congregation has been meeting in secret to avoid further enforcement from health officials and police.

                The province of Alberta enters stage three of reopening on July 1, when most provincially enforced public health orders will be dropped.


                James was at court yesterday, I believe, suing the government over the church seizure, so perhaps this was the government’s response to that lawsuit. I haven’t heard how yesterday went.

                  • Thanks. I hadn't been aware that Tim was continuing to be held for another 2 weeks.

                        His lawyers received word this morning that the May 6 Rooke order was being rescinded now that Alberta is in Stage 3 of reopening, and there are no more capacity restrictions on places of worship.

                        So, his lawyers moved as quickly as they could to get him out.

                        Rebel News' Adam Soos was alerted to this news by the Stephens family, and he's on the scene right now.

                        Pastor Tim's next court appearance was slated for July 12th. He was arrested in front of his family at his Calgary home June 15 breaching the Rooke order restraining illegal public gatherings after he held an outdoor church service the previous Sunday.

                        Rebel News is on scene with Pastor Tim and his family right now.

                              Not much about the action brought by James Coates and the JCCF against the government that was supposed to be heard yesterday?
