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.

    Scalfari: Pope Francis Told Me That Jesus Incarnate Was a 'Man ... Not at All a God'

    This story was updated at 2:25 p.m EST to include a brief statement from the Vatican, which does not deny what Scalfari reported about Pope Franics, only saying it "cannot be considered as a faithful account of what was effectively said, but represent more a personal free interpretation of that which he [Scalfari] heard." (See below.)

    In the latest edition of La Repubblica, Pope Francis' longtime atheist friend and interviewer, Eugenio Scalfari, claims that the Pope told him that once Jesus Christ became incarnate, he was a man, a "man of exceptional virtues" but "not at all a God."

    The teaching of the Catholic Church and most Christian churches is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was incarnated as fully man and fully God.

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Pope Francis somewhat reminds me of Trump, in the very specific sense that he's often confusing and/or misinterpreted, but at the same time he seems to invite much of this confusion and seems to offer very little clarity.
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

      I think the interpretation of Church Militant may be most accurate. However that said, I have often believed that Pope Francis may end up being declared an antipope. His presence has triggered quite a problem with conservative and faithful Catholics vs the C and E (Christmas and Easter) Catholics. I have myself had many issues with him.

        I don't think I've ever seen a more irrelevant pope. About the only time he's in the news is when he says something dumb.

        Fortunately, he doesn't Tweet a whole lot.

        (Does he Tweet at all?)

          Apparently yes.

            His Twitter handle is Pontifex. It was a question I missed in a trivia competition. I won't forget it now.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

              Eugenio Scalfari is a writer who by his own admission doesn't actually take notes on interviews, and his high age brings up questions concerning the accuracy of his memory. For that matter, this apparently is something he's claiming Francis told him in the past, which raises questions as to why Scalfari is only saying this now.

              So we have secondhand information from an source of questionable reliability saying one thing, and people somehow think this is more credible than the various times Francis has affirmed the divinity of Jesus? Why? (the answer, incidentally, is almost certainly "because it gets clicks")

              Whatever valid criticisms there might be to make of Francis, this doesn't seem to be one.
