Purity Culture Definition:
Purity culture has an obsessive focus on virginity before marriage and on maintaining emotional purity that pervades fundamentalism and evangelicalism, made visible in purity balls, purity rings, purity pledges, and modesty teachings.
It ties your worth as a person to your virginity, not who you are in Christ.
NOTE: Remember, there is nothing wrong with being a virgin, but there is something wrong about making virginity an idol, and that's what purity culture...
The French/Swiss religious leader John Calvin is famous as an advocate of predestination. He was virtual dictator of Geneva for many years, and Geneva can justifiably be called a totalitarian state under his rule. Perhaps the greatest controversy of Calvin's life is the execution of Miguel Servetus, or Michael Servetus.
Servetus, a Spandiard, was successful as a medical doctor and had published books on theology. He had corresponded with John Calvin, apparently hoping to make a friend....

I've been a Baptist for my entire life. Well, perhaps until recently. I'm not certain. Hence, this post. I feel like I haven't budged, and my denomination has absolutely derailed. I've noticed (over the years) that the level of disagreement and conflict among Baptists is dizzying. And something that concerns me, quite a bit, is how Dispensationalism is running RAMPANT through Baptist churches. It has...

I have a question about the definition of sola scriptura.
Am I not a "sola scriptura -Christian" if I believe, that to understand the will of God and to get to know the truth, the text in the Bible in itself isn't sufficient, but that one must be guided by the Holy Spirit to understand what the Bible text actually says?
I just watched a debate between a Protestant and a Catholic on the subject of sola scriptura. I was surprised that neither one of them claimed that God's Spirit is the one...
The raw truth about what is, and what is to come. I invite you to view our 4-minute video, and I ask the question: Are we in the last of the last days?
Sin is like rust on a car! At first, you notice a spot of rust but 99% of your vehicle is still intact. You may not think much of that one spot of rust. You may even become desensitized to it, and so you let it go. But left alone it will consume your entire vehicle.
Sin is moral debt to God. As the years go by, the debt grows and grows......
Hi, quick background: agnostic, want to understand Christianity a bit better. My current understanding is limited to that which I got from christian friends and media, forgive any and all misconceptions that I have.
I have two question right now:
1) God gave us free will, but then followed up by basically saying "if you don't follow me, you go to hell", which is kind of the equivalent of saying "your choice, but only if you make the right choice". How is this fair?
2a) I do not understand...
I work with two Christians who seem to think that homosexual sin is worse than others. Let me give you a quick backstory to what I'm talking about. I work in a bakery for 5 years and the bakery has three cake decorators 2 of them are Christians. We had a gay couple place a order for a wedding cake. Both of cake decorators who are Christians refused to make the wedding cake for the gay couple. They told the owner they will not make a wedding cake for people who live in sin and marriage is...
