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.

    specifically, can you give one example. If they are numerous, give me a short list. Then we can disused each issue one at a time.
    . . . the Gospel of Christ, for it is [the] power of God to salvation to every [one] believing, . . . -- Romans 1:16.

    . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: . . . -- 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4.

    Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: . . . -- 1 John 5:1.

    Well...
    They think there church is the only true church, assume that you can't become a Christian before your teens, think you have to get baptized immediately or your salvation is in danger, think God doesn't want us to use instrumental music in church because He didn't specifically say it was okay, etc.
    CARM did a nice summary for me. https://carm.org/bible.ca

            yes, that would be another wacked version of a gospel.

            But the United Church of Christ in Canada does not teach that. ref Bible.ca. which Christianbookworm pointed that they're not a trustworthy source of Bible teaching. [From time to time in Google searches that site would come up with otherwise orthodox answers. I had not investigated their overall doctrinal views. Baptismal regeneration for example.]

              It's wHacked. There is no such term as wacked in US English vernacular. There IS a term in British English, and it means a friend.
