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.

  • Confess Your Sins: To PLANTS!

    This is not the Bee!

    Absolute theological bankruptcy': Union Theological Seminary students confess climate sins to plants

    Today in chapel, we confessed to plants. Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor.

    What do you confess to the plants in your life?

        Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

          It certainly is not Christian, but in any case it is just nuts. Do the plants give absolution?

                  It's certainly paganism of some sort.

                  I liked some of the comments on Justin Peters' Facebook page, where some were saying things like, "I confess to my broccoli that I love it, especially in a stir fry", etc.

                    It's a combination - confessing, blessing, ingesting.

                      So they have their own vegetable god and communion sacrament. At a so called Christian College!

                        Dear Salad,
                        I confess that I think you are mostly just food that my food eats, but once in a while I like you as long as I can drown you in salad dressing. And covered with bacon. Then you are tolerable. Amen.

                              well they claim to be rooted in Christianity ["Grounded in the Christian tradition and responsive to the needs of God’s creation, a Union education prepares its students for committed lives of service to the church, academy, and society."]

                              but on their website this is part of their infographic:

                              https://utsnyc.edu/about/glance/

                              Clearly mentions paganism, muslim, hindu, etc.

                              "Theologically bankrupt" is putting it mildly. They are actively corrupting young minds under the guise of a Christian Seminary with paganism and heresy.

                              They are the ones Jesus is talking about:
                              Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
