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.

Why is Universalism so unorthodox to a Christian?

    I once had a universal joint break while driving my 66 Ford Fairlane.... my car just coasted to a stop, and I had to walk back and pick up my drive shaft.

    And if I were reading this thread I would have to agree with Sparky. I love honeybees and do not like them funny spelled flies.
    Who said that?

    You too!

    Our Associate Pastor is still our Associate, although he has thrown his hat into the ring for Senior Pastor. We have an interim (Preaching only) Pastor while we (the Pulpit Committee) find a new pastor, and we (the Deacon Board) run the church...Our Bylaws prohibit the interim pastor from being considered for the Senior Pastor position, and makes the Board the defacto interim Sr. Pastor...hence our current situation.

    Too bad you're the wrong denomination...

    Maybe he would stoop down and take his stylus and write on the iPad, then stand up and tell Mick "if you are without sin, continue throwing stones".
