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.

    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.

        I just stumbled across this video, but it's from the week before Resurrection Sunday -- the first Sunday after James Coates was released from prison. How gracious he is in his words.

          Protesters Rip Down Government Fencing Around Alberta Church; Police Show Up In Riot Gear

          It was people sympathetic to the church, not church members, who pulled down the fence. The church is currently meeting in a secret location, like they do in other secular fascist countries.

            This is where the community needs to step up and offer them an alternate space to meet. Or maybe they can rent a warehouse.

              They met in a secret location yesterday.

              And they put out a statement saying they had nothing to go with those who showed up yesterday to protest.

                I saw the news on that. Didn't see any police in riot gear, only the vests they wear with colour on them, as they always do to indicate they are officers, and the protesters only removed a couple of portions of the fence before they were stopped. You could also hear someone from the protesters shouting that they didn't want those pulling down the fence to do so, but to just stand peacefully.

                I don't know who the police are in the picture in the link, but they aren't RCMP.

                This from GCC yesterday.

                  I'm sorry this picture doesn't have the entire thing, but the message is there, from an attendee at the peaceful protest at Grace Life this past Sunday.

                    I wonder if these were "well intentioned" people thinking they were helping by tearing down the fences, or were they instigators wanting to make the Christians look bad? And if the latter, I wonder who put them up to it?

                      Good question. I suspect the latter.

                        From the article:

                        “After 13 months of violating Charter freedoms, the Alberta Government refuses to present evidence in support of lockdowns in Court, and unfortunately the courts have permitted the government to delay facing accountability in regard to Charter violations,” states lawyer John Carpay, President of the Justice Centre.

                        “Justice delayed is justice denied. It is clear that the government’s approach to any challenge to its lockdown policies is to withhold the evidence and delay as long as it can,” continues Mr. Carpay.

                        “We are now in our thirteenth month of Charter-violating lockdowns, in what was supposed to be a temporary two-week measure to flatten the curve. By May 3, the government will have had fourteen months to assemble proper medical and scientific evidence to justify lockdowns and the resulting violations of our fundamental Charter freedoms. For the Alberta Government to request that it not be required to provide evidence on May 3 in support of Dr. Hinshaw’s Orders, while at the same time barricading the church, is both reprehensible and pathetic,” states Mr. Carpay.

                        “The Alberta government supposedly has enough medical and scientific evidence to shut down hundreds of small businesses, pushing many of them into bankruptcy, and to cancel over 20,000 medically necessary surgeries, and to force Albertans into a third lockdown. But when asked to produce this medical and scientific evidence at trial, the Alberta government declares itself incapable of doing so,” continues Mr. Carpay.
