Theology 201 Guidelines

This is the forum to discuss the spectrum of views within Christianity on God's foreknowledge and election such as Calvinism, Arminianism, Molinism, Open Theism, Process Theism, Restrictivism, and Inclusivism, Christian Universalism and what these all are about anyway. Who is saved and when is/was their salvation certain? How does God exercise His sovereignty and how powerful is He? Is God timeless and immutable? Does a triune God help better understand God's love for mankind?

While this area is for the discussion of these doctrines within historic Christianity, all theists interested in discussing these areas within the presuppositions of and respect for the Christian framework are welcome to participate here. This is not the area for debate between nontheists and theists, additionally, there may be some topics that within the Moderator's discretion fall so outside the bounds of mainstream evangelical doctrine that may be more appropriately placed within Comparative Religions 101 Nontheists seeking only theistic participation only in a manner that does not seek to undermine the faith of others are also welcome - but we ask that Moderator approval be obtained beforehand.

Atheists are welcome to discuss and debate these issues in the Apologetics 301 or General Theistics 101 forum without such restrictions. Theists who wish to discuss these issues outside the parameters of orthodox Christian doctrine are invited to Unorthodox Theology 201.

Remember, our forum rules apply here as well. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

  • Preaching Christ the Foundation Stone !

    1 Cor 3:10-11

    10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

    11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

    Preaching Christ the foundation Stone, The OT mentions a Foundation Stone Isa 28:16

    16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

    Thats why it reads in Eph 2:20

    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    Isaiah Preached Christ as we just read in Isa 28:16, of which the Apostle Peter quotes here 1 Pet 2:6

    6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture[OT], Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

    And the Apostle Paul here Rom 9:33

    33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. See Isa 8:14

    Now no doubt about it, it is the Lord Jesus Christ who is this Foundational Stone. It also mentions being laid in Zion. What is Zion ? Zion is a Type of the Church, the Elect or Chosen. It's the Temple of God, Christ being the Corner Stone Eph 2:20-21

    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

    Zion was a Hill in Jerusalem where the Temple was Built !

    So, now the Holy Temple is the Church, composed of jews and gentiles who are believers, Chosen Believers Eph 1:4

    4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

    Christ being the Chief Cornerstone, that is Zion ! 12

    • Who laid this foundation ?

      It is only appropriate to know [in preaching the Gospel] who laid this Foundation, which is Christ; well who speaks in the Prophecy Isa 28:16

      16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

      No man could have laid this foundation 1 Cor 3:11

      11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

      Next, the Preacher should know When this foundation was Laid by The Eternal Jehovah !! When was this Foundation, which is Christ, and which the Salvation of Zion [The Church] depends ? Scripture informs us that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Lamb Slain from the foundation of the world Rev 13:8, so this foundation was laid before the the world began because of this it's support verse 1 Pet 1:20

      20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

      Now in Eternity Past, Christ the Foundation Stone was laid in the Eternal Counsels of the Everlasting Covenant, Where He was the Designated the Surety Lamb Shepherd for the Sheep. At this Unknown Time the Triune Jehovah determined that the Zion of God, the Church, comprised of Chosen men and women of every tribe, nation, and tongue, should be Eternally Redeemed by the Person and Work, of the Chief Cornerstone, Christ Jesus the Lord ! These things should be included in the Gospel of Christ ! Lets discuss
