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 have a hard time believing that many evangelical Trump voters do not actually support him because there has been zero attempt to put forth an alternative in the primaries (there are a few primary candidates so far, but none who would be appealing to evangelicals). When I previously brought this up, the line has been that it is not normal for incumbents to be primaried, however, no less a person than Ronald Reagan challenged an incumbent president in the primaries.

    In any event, state GOPs are starting to cancel their primaries to protect Trump anyway.

      I would love to have another Reagan.

        Nice Christian bashing brother.
        You need to know that I'm neither communist nor liberal. But all Trumpys can do is accuse decent people of being liberal commies.

        I'm also not pink, I am actually brown skinned but I hesitate to mention that to someone like you. 😉

          Well, I don't NEED to know that, but if you say so!

          Why, because now you're going to falsely accuse me of being a racist? Water off a duck's back.

            The wink at the end should have been a clue that I was joking with you. I guess you didn't see it because you were distracted by all of your friends chanting "send her back".

                No, I'm just heartbroken that so many Christians are putting their Faith in Donald Trump.
                It makes me snarky. Nothing to worry about.

                  It's not a dishonest question. It's a question that should be easy to answer if someone is being honest. I'll ask again, and you can reflect again:
                  Should Christians support immorality?

                      That should be "deflect" not " reflect " .

                            I did. I guess it was too hard for you. Or too revealing. Do you think that Christians should support immorality?

                              No, nor do I think they should be s on the internetzweb.

                                Whenever someone refuses to answer a simple question, it reveals something about that person.
