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.

    Don't know if it's true or not time will tell...for the sake of argument, let's assume it's true. Can you tell me how it's immoral?

        Conspiring with foreign governments to affect IS elections doesn't seem immoral to you?

            Just as I thought. Excuse everything. Deny deny deny. Then the insults start.

                    Sadly, he was very much like atheist JimL in that regard -- and I expect that from an atheist. Not from a fellow Christian.

                    He's upset about the Trump adoration in his church (I suspect there's some exaggeration there) so he brings it to Tweb and sees "Trumpism" where there is none, using that to make broad brush assumptions and make false allegations.

                    I, personally, have no desire to interact any further with him.

                        He seems to be incapable of understanding that somebody who voted for Trump nearly 4 years ago is not necessarily a Trump supporter today. Perhaps you can help him understand that.

                            If you aren't a Trump supporter then you and I have no disagreements. Are you willing be disavow Trump?

                              Offensive sure....(though technically one of them isn't originally from this country) immoral though? I don't see it.

                              Mmmmm...no, Not really... So, I guess if someone who is well connected in government, say....like the son of a ex-VPOTUS, does something that is "shady" in a foreign country, the president doesn't have the right to know about it? Or, if he does know about it, he can only learn about it from his own intelligence people...who of course, may very well may learn about it from foreign spies...in a foreign gov't...which is how these things often work.

                                Okay, this is why I didn't want to do this with you. Go ahead and excuse everything. Whatever.
