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.

    There are at least two world class nitpickers on this forum at present, so you have some stiff competition.

      These two statements are directly contradictory. They can not both be true.
      Not really, men can be determined even while choosing what they want - their wants are determined. Chose:to have a preference for. It does not necessarily mean that one has the power to do otherwise.
      Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

        If you lack freewill, then you lack the ability to choose. You can only follow a predetermined path.

        • I just realized I shouldn't be posting here. The guidelines are not totally clear but do seem to require theism. My beliefs do not fit neatly into any of the options given in the profile for "faith" but I would no longer consider myself a theist as it is defined here, so I will apologize and bow out.

            The key word seems to be "primarily." The moderators seem to be holding that requirement in abeyance, at least for this thread.

                I have no objection to you or any of the other non-theists posting here, since the thread was started in Civics.

                Perhaps others of the staff may have objections, but I doubt it.
