Ecclesiology 201 Guidelines

Discussion on matters of general mainstream Christian churches. What are the differences between Catholics and protestants? How has the charismatic movement affected the church? Are Southern baptists different from fundamentalist baptists? It is also for discussions about the nature of the church.

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 theists. 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” 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, there may be some topics that within the Moderator's discretion fall so outside the bounds of mainstream orthodox doctrine that may be more appropriately placed within Comparative Religions 101.

      An over fundamentalist reading of the text makes for goofy interpretations, such as that.
      "The man from the yacht thought he was the first to find England; I thought I was the first to find Europe. I did try to found a heresy of my own; and when I had put the last touches to it, I discovered that it was orthodoxy."

        How far would they go with that? Claim Women can't even teach little boys?

            Paul's statement about not letting women teach refers to the church. I don't know to what extent it should be applied to a school.

              There was a case in Kansas a few years ago where a small Christian school kicked a female referee out of a boys' basketball game, citing that scriptural principle. I think the state high school athletics association quickly made a rule where that could no longer be done.

                        Well I cannot agree with being pro-sexual immorality. I do not agree with generalizing what it means to be Christian either. There is the Biblical Christianity - where it is God who makes the genuine Christians. And the there are those who are called Christian for no other reason than that say they are. And from a non-Christian point of view, that latter definition is the one commonly used. Now Biblical inerrancy has everything to do with its contents origin being with God. God being inerrant. And then there are the real haters, those who hate truth - they hate those who believe truth because it is narrow. It sounds to me that those changes that school is making is being mischaracterized by those who hate truth.

                          I must have missed something in one of the links. How is this about some being pro-sexual immorality?

                          By the way, I love Truth, not because it is narrow, 'though, but because it isn't.

                            My comment was based in the type of comments known to be made by an author Shane Claiborne who also just happened to have been disinvited to speak at the school. ". . . I am sorry that so often the biggest obstacle to God has been Christians. . . ._ . . . among young non-Christians are that Christians are 1) antigay, 2) judgmental, and 3) hypocritical. So what we have here is a bit of an image crisis, . . ."

                            Then you do not love truth. Since real truth is narrow. Prove otherwise.

                            Jesus is the only way to God. That is narrow.

                              Jesus is the only way to God. That is narrow.
                              Thanks for explaining.

                              I don't know if I can prove to you that truth is narrow, but consider this. To say that Jesus is the only way to God does not mean that Jesus himself, who is the Truth, is narrow. The love of Christ surpasses understanding. How could that be narrow? The peace of God exceeds all understanding. How could God be narrow? We only know in part as through a glass darkly but later we will know as we ourselves are known by God. In comparison, it may seem that what we know now is narrow, but surely God's knowledge is not narrow or constrained. God's understanding is infinite. God is Truth. Is not God infinitely beyond our ability to understand? How could God be narrow?
