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.

  • Bible Museum

    In today's mail I got a solicitation from the Bible Museum. Apparently they want to build a museum dedicated to the history and influence of the Bible in the world. My feeling is I have better things to do with my money than support such a museum.

    What do you think?

    I would be interested in visiting such a museum if I happened to be in town, but I don't see myself giving any money.

      Maybe they could save money and put the Bible Museum in the Confederate Flag Museum.

        My understanding is that the museum is being operated by evangelical Christians, right?

          Website http://museumofthebible.org/ is a little murky to me. I only recognize one of the Board of Directors. Conservative-Evangelically is probably a better description.

            It looks like the Hobby Lobby owners are behind it. Steve Green is the chairman of the Museum of the Bible and also the President of Hobby Lobby. They acquired a lot of Biblical artifacts that have already been on tour and will be housed at the museum. According to their website, they have 200 million dollars of assets and are planning on finishing the museum in 2017. Somehow they spent 10 million dollars last year. It is near the Capitol, so it could be accessible to a lot of people in DC.

            Whether or not to fund it? Depends on what you think would be a good use of your money.

              It is Hobby lobby. They were on the Eric Metexas show. And excellent program IMO. http://ericmetaxas.com. That is his website. The talk program is here: http://www.metaxastalk.com/podcast/thursday-may-7-2015/ This one is on the Museum of the Bible. It answers lots of questions.
