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.

  • Russell Wilson

    NFL star Russell Wilson has made some headlines recently because he told the media that God told him to abstain from sex before marriage (he is dating R&B singer Ciara, who is absolutely beautiful, and who is on board with Wilson's plan). Like with Tim Tebow, the media has not hesitated to jump on mockingly (see this example: http://www.eonline.com/news/673535/r...sex-with-ciara )

    Some people think Wilson is bragging about being pious. I don't see it that way. I see him as trying to set a positive example, and by taking things public, he is asking for more accountability. I'm not a big football fan but I'm pulling for him.

    My nephew went to school with Russell. He said he was kind of an arrogant kid, but he was never a womanizer.

      Didn't he recently admit that he was a bully growing up?

        Yeah. He hung with the jocks. My nephew was a baseball player so they ran with the same crowds. And they acted like typical high school jocks in that regard.

          Piety as bragging - in this day and age? What are the critics on?
