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.

  • Margaret Bottome- Crumbs from the Kings Table

    Oh my what a wonderful devotional. I believe it was written in the 1800's. I usually read Charles Spurgeon, Oswald Chambers and other classics but one day I was looking specifically for women's encouragement. I had no interest in devotionals from these past few generations but wanted to go to a kindred heart from the past to mentor my spirit. Something opposite of the Joyce Meyers of today with so many books, and get paid so lovely once those deadlines are met. Sorry if I offend her fans, I don't like her, I don't sense her talks and books are solely based on pure, genuine faith with the SOLE purpose of wanting to encourage other women. It's a free download you can get on your phone. Amazon has one listing of this book with a one review and one star (the one star was due to a cosmetic issue)so it's unfortunate women of this generation will not be able to see this gem.

    Just wanted to share.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I am finding the older books are better than the newer stuff. The older books seem more in touch with reality than a lot of current stuff. I'm working through Pope Gregory I's book The Pastoral Rule. (Available on Amazon as well.) I'm finding it a very realistic view of human nature and how to minister to various personalities.
