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.

    I am having reservations on getting involved. Moses wrote in Hebrew and you quote him as such: " God replies ehyeh asher ehyeh “I am that I am: "

    Why turn to Greek to pick apart meanings? As that is a translation, is it not subject to possible inaccuracies from men?
    Sorry for the post, it seems I have walked in late to the party. I see now that you are back referencing the New Testament, on to the old.
    In that Kenosis is splitting hairs which seem to be too fine to be of significance (seems to me), I'll just watch on the sideline.

      They picked up stones to throw at him = they picked up stones to kill him?
      On another occasion they were going to stone him to death because (they alleged that) he had claimed to be equal to God = the same reason applied on this occasion.

      Eisegesis seems to be in evidence.

        Why else do Jewish leaders pick up stones?

        I see a pattern here!

        I love ya man - I'll leave the thread with that!
        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          Not always for lapidation. Sometimes it was intended to injure or drive an unwanted person away. Sometimes they would have been better off with the stones somewhere else.

          I see faces in the clouds. (unfair I suppose - there is at least some reason for believing that there might be a pattern.)

          Unfortunate.
