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.

    Eh... I get why people use the term, 'reverse racism,' because this behavior is flipping who's giving it and who's taking it, but I prefer to call it 'racism,' because- at the end of the day- that's just what it is, pure and simple.

      Yes, I agree. But reverse racism is also correct, because it is being "flipped", to the point that we are meant to feel guilty just for being white.

        Progressives are such demonically deceived fools, they don't even believe "reverse racism" is possible.

          ...Yeah, any time someone tries to shame be for being 'white,' I point out that I'm technically only mostly white (being Metis and all, I'm technically Non-Status Indigenous) and I tell 'em to put the Race Card back in the deck.

          Admittedly, I have a bit of fun trolling certain folks when they go, "ReVeRsE rAcIsM iSn'T rEaL," (a common soundbite when the term Reverse Racism comes up) and I go, "You're right. This behavior is better described as just plain-jane, old-fashioned racism." Watching the spark fly out of their ears is comedy gold.

            That was the point made back in the 80s when the term "reverse discrimination" was popular. There is no such thing as "reverse discrimination." There is just discrimination. Same with racism.

              Prayer of a Weary Black Woman

              [...]

              In all truth, my familial and personal experiences of racism have given me thousands, maybe even millions, of reasons to hate White people. It could easily be seen as justified. And I could find biblical precedent for it.

              But dammit if God hasn’t given me a different spirit, one that insists on looking for goodness and possibility, one that holds holy rage and holy hope together. Many Black women can connect to that prayer, especially those of us who labor for justice within and beyond the church. Loving people who are committed to hating us – to disenfranchising us, incarcerating us, and abusing us in myriad other ways – is hard. And still, we persist.

              The prayer is below.
