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.

    Okay, you are the thread starter. Apparently you have the right. However, if you really want to stump me, you should point out the faults in the view.
    When you are asked to leave a thread, you are allowed one post to acknowledge you have been asked to leave.
    Do NOT respond again.


    News: Formal rule on banning people from your thread
    3. When a thread owner asks someone to leave, that person is entitled to ONE response, for the express purpose of acknowledging they are leaving - no other commentary or argument. If the thread owner mentions them or responds to that post, or even an earlier post by them, then the person banned can respond to that post and is no longer banned.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      I do wonder if, instead, he's appeasing groups like in Israel that actively discourage evangelical activites, and in China where even worship is controlled by the Gov't and even an outright blasphemous translation of Bible passages are being done.

        You know that's believable, especially with regards to China.

          The fact that we're left wondering what he meant is tragic coming from somebody who is supposed to be a world leader.
