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.

    Timothy, if Christians can't vote for immoral politicians, then you must never vote. Is that correct?

    Which one of the hats?

    Doesn't appear much different from these hats either,

    edit: Never mind, he meant the 2020 hats, not the 2016 hats.

    You aren't entitled to an apology, little devil, until you apologize yourself.

    Do you want those pm's made public? They don't violate Decorum - but they are nothing you should be proud of.

    Timothy,

    Fair and public warning - one more PM from you and I will take the whole thing - including pm's - to the Padded Room to allow others to judge between us.

    He has pressured a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 American presidential election.


    He urged a foreign country to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.

    He divulged classified information to foreign officials.

    He publicly undermined American intelligence agents while standing next to a hostile foreign autocrat.

    He hired a national security adviser who he knew had secretly worked as a foreign lobbyist.

    He encourages foreign leaders to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.

    He genuflects to murderous dictators.

    He has alienated America’s closest allies.

    He lied to the American people about his company’s business dealings in Russia.

    He tells new lies virtually every week — about the economy, voter fraud, even the weather.

    He spends hours on end watching television and days on end staying at resorts.

    He often declines to read briefing books or perform other basic functions of a president’s job.

    He has aides, as well as members of his own party in Congress, who mock him behind his back as unfit for office.

    He has repeatedly denigrated a deceased United States senator who was a war hero.

    He insulted a Gold Star family — the survivors of American troops killed in action.

    He described a former first lady, not long after she died, as “nasty.”

    He described white supremacists as “some very fine people.”

    He told four women of color, all citizens and members of Congress, to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”

    He made a joke about Pocahontas during a ceremony honoring Native American World War II veterans.

    He launched his political career by falsely claiming that the first black president was not really American.

    He launched his presidential campaign by describing Mexicans as “rapists.”

    He has described women, variously, as “a dog,” “a pig” and “horseface,” as well as “bleeding badly from a facelift” and having “blood coming out of her wherever.”

    He has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct by multiple women.

    He enthusiastically campaigned for a Senate candidate who was accused of molesting multiple teenage girls.

    He waved around his arms, while giving a speech, to ridicule a physically disabled person.

    He has encouraged his supporters to commit violence against his political opponents.

    He has called for his opponents and critics to be investigated and jailed.

    He uses a phrase popular with dictators — “the enemy of the people” — to describe journalists.

    He attempts to undermine any independent source of information that he does not like, including judges, scientists, journalists, election officials, the F.B.I., the C.I.A., the Congressional Budget Office and the National Weather Service.

    He has tried to harass the chairman of the Federal Reserve into lowering interest rates.

    He said that a judge could not be objective because of his Mexican heritage.

    He obstructed justice by trying to influence an investigation into his presidential campaign.

    He violated federal law by directing his lawyer to pay $280,000 in hush money to cover up two apparent extramarital affairs.

    He made his fortune partly through wide-scale financial fraud.

    He has refused to release his tax returns.

    He falsely accused his predecessor of wiretapping him.

    He claimed that federal law-enforcement agents and prosecutors regularly fabricated evidence, thereby damaging the credibility of criminal investigations across the country.

    He has ordered children to be physically separated from their parents.

    He has suggested that America is no different from or better than Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

    He has called America a “hellhole.”

    Congratulations. You just provided a list that makes Trump's ability to exaggerate and misrepresent look like the work of a rank amateur.

    You all have a great time on judgment day.

    That is really too much.
    Reading comprehension not your thing, is it? Your logic, applied to you, leads to exactly that conclusion. If it is unfair, the problem is in your logic.

    I apologize. I should have used the word context instead of reference. My error.
