In the bible people still lived in communities and didn't move around a lot. For them the church was a community too. It was first a local community like a village or a town and second a community of common beliefs and behaviours. When the bible is read it's good to remember that community was the norm both locally because people didn't move from town to town and church to church a lot and theologically because the church was people who all believed in Jesus.
Now it is different because the local community aspect of life has changed. Only some people remain in the same village or town for their whole lifetime. Many move from town to town and from church to church. Because of moving around people lose their community to a degree. Their...
Lately you have been told to put away the Wise Men from your nativity scene because Jesus was about two years old when the wise men arrived to worship Him? Look at these passages again...
(Luk 2:1) And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
(Luk 2:2) (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
(Luk 2:3) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
(Luk 2:4) And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David
(Luk 2:5) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
(Luk 2:6) And...
What do you think? Other than the very general answer of how Christians view Scripture, what is the key difference between Liberal/Moderate Christians and Conservative/Traditional Christians, regardless of which branch of Christianity they may belong?
Hello all! This is my first post as I have been searching for advice from people who do not personally know me, so that I can see things from a different perspective.Please help me as I have a lot of inner turmoil going on and my spirit is very chaotic right now.
BACKSTORY: I have grown up Christian and in the church all of my life so has my husband. We met in high school and he has been the only person I ever dated. Ever. I began to have feelings of doubt. I wasn’t sure if I was still in love with him and I wanted to explore on my own, and figure out who I was as a person individually because I was in college at the time. I pushed it aside because even though I wasn’t happy, I didn’t want to hurt his feelings because I knew how much...
Hyper-Calvinism: Beliefs: God is the author of sin and man has no responsibility before God. The Gospel should only preached to the elect. i.e. duty faith. and anti-missionary Belief in the five points is a prerequisite for true salvation, also known as Neo-Gnostic Calvinism. Proponents: Joseph Hussey John Skepp and some English primitive Baptists.
Ultra High Calvinism: Beliefs: That the elect are in some sense eternally justified. A denial of: The Well–Meant Offer; Common Grace; and God having any love for the non-elect. Proponents: John Gill, some ministers in the Protestant Reformed Church of America
High Calvinism: Beliefs: That God in no sense desires to save the reprobate, Most deny the Well-Meant Offer. Supralapsarian viewing...
“You know what I love? I love seeing some young conservatives because I know it’s not easy. (Crowd applauds and shouts.) Keep up that fight. Bring it to your schools. You don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth. You don’t have to do it. Because you can think for yourselves. They can’t.” (Crowd applauds and shouts again.) – Donald Trump Jr. in Texas on Feb. 11, 2019
For teachers around the globe, this was a chilling moment.
In a stadium filled with people chanting “USA, USA,” the son of the president of the United States called for hostility toward teachers because of their so-called political leanings. This is a message you would expect in an authoritarian regime, not...
My friend is muslim and he means a lot to me. We both love eachother but we can't be together since I am a Christian and he is Muslim. I was wondering if it is possible to reach his heart so that he could let Christ in?
How did some of you come to God? I know that it's not easy and I'm trying my best not to give up on him. Is there hope?
I think most posting here would know of the Liberal Theology from 19th century Continental Europe which started in the Tubingen school and manifested from there. Such questioned the infallibility of canonical Holy Scriptures (JEDP theory), questioned the Deity of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Birth.
There’s more, but what is Liberal Theology in the 21st century? Can someone define it? Is there a systematic theology explaining it?
For example, for the Reformed they have been various systematic theology tomes in the past which for example the Ligonier site lists. Also many are familiar with Wayne Grudem’s systematic theology tome in this century which continues in the Reformed theology. There are examples of Arminian leaning...
Lucifer is an extremely intelligent fallen angel that has deceived 1/3 of other angels into following him.
God freshly made Adam and Eve and they also fell for the schemes of the fallen angel. Does this show that Lucifer and fallen angel's are more intelligent than humans?
Did Adam and Eve fall because they were not intelligent enough? Well if they were intelligent enough wouldn't they never had fallen for it, or did it have nothing to do with intelligence?
Lucifer has been studying mankind for the past 6000 years and has lived longer than any humans ever had.
The Calvinists have a good response towards this, is that it further shows how helpless humans are, and their need for Christ. And it glorifies God when God saves them from...
I am sure some might disagree with me but it is illogical that one will always remain a Christian without accepting double predestination, unlimited atonement, etc.
