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.

  • Which Theologian are you?

    Someone posted this on facebook, so I'm just posting it again here.

    I got the most handsome man in the world
    "You Scored as Anselm
    Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?'"

      I said it there and I'll say it again. I am Karl Barth!

      Well that was anticlimactic.

          Jürgen Moltmann, who's Liberation Theology is focused in our hope of Ressurection.

          As the Facebook conversation went most everyone was Barthian and Luther was very uncommon.
          Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? -Galatians 3:5

            It's a tie between Karl Barth and Anslem. Karl Barth is fitting, considering my despise of liberal 'theology'.

              Guess that makes me special.

                So with so many getting Karl Barth, is the quiz rigged, not well made, or do a lot of us just think the same way?

                    Some questions could use clarification. For instance, what does the author mean by "exist"? Or "Holy Spirit revival"? Or "eschatology"?

                      Paul Tillich. Unfortunately, John Scottus Eriugena doesn't seem to have been an option.

                        My thoughts exactly. Questions needed to be clearer.

                          I haven't done the quiz, because I get stuck at and irritated by such questions. My thoughts begin "By the common-sensical understanding of exist, God clearly exists, but clearly His mode of existence differs from creation's..." and conclude "this quiz sucks."

                            I agreed with that statement because I knew what they were going for, but that question really irritated me!

                              I got Barth. I'm mainly just glad I didn't get Bultmann or something (I don't think he was an option anyway).
                              "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
