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.

    Kenney government misleads Albertans about Covid and lockdowns

    Posted On: May 6, 2021

    The facts are in, but the false narrative continues. The latest piece of government propaganda comes by way of an April 28, 2021 form letter that Alberta’s Health Minister Tyler Shandro is sending to Albertans who write to him about Covid lockdowns.

    Minister Shandro claims that “Alberta’s initial approach to contain the spread of Covid-19 and protect Albertans was measured, balancing the need to protect health system capacity and provide care to Albertans in need, while limiting the impact on our businesses.”

    There is nothing “measured” about shutting down thousands of small businesses like restaurants, pubs, gyms, theatres, and recreational facilities. There is nothing “balanced” about closing schools, museums, universities and so many other places, while keeping big box stores open. These measures are unprecedented and enormously oppressive. Keeping liquor and cannabis stores open was also a political move, having nothing to do with science or public health.

    If crippling Alberta’s already-hurting economy was “measured” as claimed by Minister Shandro, his government would now be presenting evidence to support that claim at the trial of Pastor James Coates in Edmonton. But after trampling Albertans’ civil liberties for more than 13 months, the Alberta Government has declared itself unwilling or unable to put medical and scientific evidence before the court, where government restrictions are being challenged as unjustified violations of the Charter.

    This tells you everything you need to know about how “scientific” and “evidence-based” the government’s restrictions are. If restrictions on our fundamental freedoms were based on science, the government would be presenting this science in court today, the trial having started on May 3, 2021. The government had ample notice that the constitutional validity of its public health orders were being challenged by Pastor Coates.

        No argument there, but a lot of mischief can still take place until that point.

                    People need to wake up that there is a battle against us which is fueled by illusional fears. We are being destroyed for an illusion. We must wake up.

                    This scenario fills out my expectation that Revelation 20:7-10 is coming to the forefront now. This example in Alberta is representative of the nations encircling the camp of the saints with intent on destruction of what God has done. This shall fail in the end -- it is just hard to know how soon this end will come. I suspect the end of these evildoers will be within the next 10 years -- or else the evildoers will have finished destroying the environment and the church.

                        Given that (at least in the U.S.) the reason for bail is to insure that someone shows up in court and doesn't skip trial, why would you say "good"? Do you think that he's a legitimate flight risk? That he will attempt to flee if released?

                        Or are you saying "good" because by denying him bail for no legitimate reason, the government can punish him without having to resort to such things as an actual trial?

                            I can't find this yet online, but our pastor just announced that in a letter received from James Coates yesterday that an Alberta court (maybe Supreme, I didn't catch it) has ruled that the province CANNOT restrict worship gatherings!



                            I will watch for confirmation of this.

                              The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is a law firm based in Calgary which specializes in defending clients all over Canada whose Constitutional rights have been violated, and this is where I've been getting news regarding their representation of James Coates -- and it looks like they've been keeping a watchful eye on the provincial government and AHS (along with the other Western provinces and Ontario) ever since early last year.

                              If news about the announcement from this morning shows up anywhere, they'll likely be the ones to share it.
