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.

  • Engaging Easter: The Cross

    Mike Bird will debate the Progressive Christian Channel's Mark Sandlin of "The God Article". The question: What did Jesus' death on the cross actually do?

    Dr. Michael Bird's opening post is quite good:

    Happy Easter.

        "We took our sins and drove them like nails through His hands and feet. We lifted Him high up on the cross of our transgressions, and then we pierced His heart through with the spear of our unbelief." - Charles Spurgeon

          Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand,
          The shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land;
          A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
          From the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day.

          There lies beneath its shadow but on the further side
          The darkness of an awful grave that gapes both deep and wide
          And there between us stands the cross two arms outstretched to save
          A watchman set to guard the way from that eternal grave.

          Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
          The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;
          And from my stricken heart with tears two wonders I confess;
          The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.

          I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
          I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
          Content to let the world go by to know no gain or loss,
          My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.

          Elizabeth Clephane
