Unorthodox Theology 201 Guidelines

Theists only.

This forum area is primarily for persons who would identify themselves as Christians whether or not their theology is recognized within the mainstream or as orthodox though other theists may participate with moderator permission. Therefore those that would be restricted from posting in Christianity 201 due to a disagreement with the enumerated doctrines, ie the Trinity, the Creatorship of God, the virgin birth, the bodily resurrection of Christ, the atonement, the future bodily return of Christ, the future bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, and the final judgment may freely post here on any theological subject matter. In this case "unorthodox" is used in the strict sense of a person who denies what has been declared as universal essentials of the historic Christian faith. Examples would be adherents to Oneness, Full Preterists, Unitarian Universalist Christians, Gnostics, Liberal Christianity, Christian Science to name a few.

The second purpose will be for threads on subjects, which although the thread starter has no issue with the above doctrines, the subject matter is so very outside the bounds of normative Christian doctrine totally within the leadership's discretion that it is placed here. In so doing, no judgment or offense is intended to be placed on the belief of said person in the above-doctrines. In this case "unorthodox" is used in a much looser sense of "outside the norms" - Examples of such threads would be pro-polygamy, pro-drug use, proponents of gay Christian churches, proponents of abortion.

The third purpose is for persons who wish to have input from any and all who would claim the title of Christian even on subjects that would be considered "orthodox."

The philosophy behind this area was to recognize that there are persons who would identify themselves as Christian and thus seem out of place in the Comparative Religions Forum, but yet in keeping with our committment here to certain basic core Christian doctrines. Also, it allows threads to be started by those who would want to still be identified as Christian with a particular belief that while not denying an essential is of such a nature that the discussion on that issue belongs in this section or for threads by persons who wish such a non-restricted discussion.

  • Caution in railing against President Biden and others.

    “But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;” 2 Peter 2:10–12 (KJV 1900)

    “Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.” Jude 8–10 (KJV 1900)

      God chooses the President and determines his actions. To rail against President Biden is to rail against God's control over him.

        So, you are saying that the president does not have free will?

          Nobody has free will. If you do, stop sinning.

                So, only sinners have free will? Biden definitely lies, so he's a sinner. Does that not mean he has free will?

                  But he does. After all, if he has no free will that means God decided to make him an Atheist.

                    He only lies when God causes him to lie. You need to spend more time in the Old Testament.

                      So, all-good God makes people sin and do Evil?

                        You just told me I don't have free will, therefore your God has forced me to be an atheist. According to you, your God has determined my actions, which led me to become an atheist after decades being a Christian

                          Originally. But he chose to save some and give them a new heart that hates evil and repents from sin.

                            That's some awful exegesis there. You could have started with Romans 13 for example, if you wanted to talk about a Christian attitude towards government. Or Matthew 5::22, if you wanted to talk about how we should speak.

                              And what evidence do you have that Biden, the serial liar, is one of them?
