Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

    That is a good clear example of the definition of eisegesis.

    If we had digital technology and laptop computers back when the Bible was written, perhaps we would have had a huge amount of detailed Scripture. The historical books of the Old Testament would have been about the size of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Imagine all the pictures we would have had. But God in His wisdom gave us just enough to carry in our arms and memorize, and read in a year. And enough to find salvation and learn Christian conduct.

    Meanwhile, there is a lot that was left unsaid. That leads to a multitude of assumptions and guesses to try to fill in the blanks. Which leads to thousands of denominations, multitude of cults and false doctrines. And fights here on TWeb.

    We all need to depend entirely on Scripture alone and on the Holy Spirit as the teacher Jesus promised He would send. And set aside every one of our own preconceived notions or what we would feel more comfortable believing.
    This is really not an issue about what is more comfortable, nor preconceived notions, but rather how to think about this other civilization that is referenced in the Book of Genesis.
