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 got a kick out of this....

      The cathedral is part of the Episcopal Church, the American branch of Anglicanism. Considered the "church of the establishment" for much of American history -- 11 US presidents have been Episcopalian -- the church of late has been known as a forerunner of progressive theology.


      A fancy way of saying that the apostasy is well under way.

          Is this an indication that you are no longer Christian?

            I am a Christian. I'm no longer associated with the Trump church, those who attempt to follow two masters, while claiming that they "Don't follow Trump".
            Did Trump tell you to call me an infidel? You become like the one you follow..

              I don't know. Apparently, in order to be a Christian I have to follow Donald Trump. I can't do that. So while I have been a Christian for 35 years, I don't know what I am any more.

                The Church's support of immoral Donald Trump broke my heart. My church felt like home, and now I feel homeless.
                I'm sad that all of this happened. I wish that the Church would leave Trump.

                    Are you incapable of understanding that somebody who voted for Trump as an alternative to Hillary doesn't necessarily "follow Donald Trump" today?

                    I can't do that. So while I have been a Christian for 35 years, I don't know what I am any more.
                    It sounds like your salvation, such as it is, wasn't rooted in Jesus, because HE hasn't changed!

                    Is following Trump an indication that you are no longer Christian?
                    So, a couple of honest questions - let's see if you can give straight honest answers:

                    A) Do you believe abortion is a horrible thing?
                    2) Do you believe same sex unions are biblical?
                    C) Do you believe the Bible instructs us to pray for those who are in power?

                      C yes. And I do.

                      Now give me a "straight honest answer" (if you can):
                      Should Christians support immorality by supporting Trump?

                        Appreciated! And those first two things would have been extremely problematic with Hillary in the Whitehouse. That third thing - might I suggest you do more of that?

                        Now give me a "straight honest answer" (if you can):
                        I love giving straight answers!

                        Should Christians support immorality by supporting Trump?
                        Have you stopped beating your wife?

                        Seriously -- I have NUMEROUS times called him a jackass and NUMEROUS times suggested somebody outta hijack his Twitter account.
                        So, besides praying for him daily, how is that "supporting his immorality"?

                        You're beginning to sound like a mini-me of one of our most notorious anti-Christian bigots who loves to attack Christians by calling them Trumpsters and "followers of Trump".
                        He can get away with that - he's lost as a goose.

                        You, sir, have a higher responsibility.

                          My faith is still in Jesus Christ. I left the Church when they left Jesus to put their faith in Donald Trump. I still pray that they will leave Trump and return to Jesus Christ.

                            Ha! I knew you wouldn't give a "straight honest answer".

                            And you already KNOW that I don't support Clinton, so your bogus charges about me wanting Hillary in the Whitehouse are exposed for the smokescreen that they are.
                            You KNOW that if 80% of Evangelicals approved of immoral Hillary, I would speak the same to them. But they don't. They support Immoral Trump.

                            You voted Trump into office, after hearing his immoral words and what they said about his character, so yes. You supported his immorality. He said he could do anything and get away with it, and you voted "yes, yes you can do anything and get away with it" .
