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.

          I didn't hear about that one. Media here is still focused on Grace Life. And, stupidly, the media here pronounced that Pastor Coates held "mass" on Friday.

              Easter Celebrations Marked by 'Nazi' Police Confronting Churches Over COVID Violations


              By Benjamin Fearnow On 4/4/21 at 1:31 PM EDT

              An infuriated Alberta, Canada, church pastor said "gestapo" local police officers showed up Saturday night and began demanding parishioners leave Passover celebrations over COVID-19 regulations.

              Pastor Artur Pawlowski of Street Church in Canada's Alberta province posted a video to Facebook on Easter Sunday, which has since gone viral across social media. In the video, six local police officers can be seen demanding that church attendees "please get out, get out of this property, immediately get out!"

              "I don't care what you have to say, out!" the pastor can be heard yelling back at the officers who were attempting to disperse members inside the Alberta church Saturday evening. "Out of this property, you Nazis. Out! Gestapo is not allowed here. Do not come back, you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in the church during the Passover. You gestapo Nazi communist fascists!"

              In his Facebook post, Pawlowski claimed the officers were not there to uphold social distancing guidelines, but instead only sought to intimidate Christian worshipers during one of their most holy celebrations of the year.

              "I don't want to hear a word," he told the officers. "Out! Out! Out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant, out."

                    May those wicked authorities -- unless they repent -- get the hell out of the church, before Christ her Head brings the Hell to them.

                            There are 3 fences. One around the building, one around the parking lot, and a gate with a fence across the road that goes from the main road going into the parking lot.

                              That would cause a small war in Texas. As a matter of fact, I can't think of a single police officer who would comply with such an order.

                                Was talking to my next door neighbour, who is a former RCMP and a former city police officer. He says that the RCMP are likely only there to protect the AHS people who are putting up the fences and changing the locks. He said the RCMP will not likely be enforcing anything, but are there as "support". He talks with friends in the RCMP often and they hate these things they are forced to do which are not even part of the actual law.

                                He also thinks the AHS must have gotten a warrant, because otherwise they would not have been able to change the locks on private property.

                                And he is as appalled by this as I am.

                                A good size group of congregants were out during the day setting up lawn chairs and just standing around outside the gate over the road. RCMP marked vehicles and a large media presence there all day, also.

                                It's really quite terrifying.
