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.

    It seems you just want to believe what you want to believe.

    Jesus sends men to the people (John 13:20, Luke 10:16, Matt 10:40-41).

    The prophesies tells us the events to come.

    Specially of these days, there are a lot of so called scholars who differ in their interpretations, and it is hard for common men to search them out. The prophecies, somehow, gives us a help on who to follow in spite we may lack deeper knowledge of the truth.

    I guess we will not get anywhere without discussing the OP.

    There was an apostasy that happened, and Israel was blinded. It was the reason why Christ said not to believe "ANY" man. So simple to understand.

    Now of whom did you get/receive your knowledge of the gospel?

    I am not preaching myself, the word of God is what I preach. Let us discuss the Word.


    I haven't questioned your salvation, but you are implicitly questioning mine, which is not agood sign...
    You don't want your salvation examined...that is not good. You seem not interested of seeking the truth.

    How could one who ought to preach of the hope of salvation, would not want his salvation examined?

    Quite honestly, you impress me as if you are a learned person, but you are failing on elementary things.

    I counsel you to learn from God, not submitting to people simply because they are scholars.
