  • Reply to The Good News: a Modern Christian Apology
    by journeyman
    I always thought I was, until Origen said I believed in Sabellianism. I've never heard that term.


    After reading it, no I don't see it as unbiblical. I see it as an attempt to explain the nature of God. After reading a definition of Sabellianism, I didn't really get what they meant by God as three "modes". Personally, I believe God appeared as the Person we know as Jesus. In other words, the Holy Spirit with a covering of flesh. Aditionally, I have no formal education and I know I believe in Jesus.


    I hope I cleared it up for you. I would like to add I reject the beliefs which have to be known as "Calvinism"....

    Journeyman,

    Why are you so deliberately vague? Why do you not answer direct questions clearly? Are you a Trinitarian? Yes or no?

    There is a question now as to whether you're Christian let alone a saved one. The question is not whether you hold a theology degree, but whether there is an issue with willful ignorance or flat out rejection of the Trinity?

    We're not asking you to lay out a dissertation of the Trinity. However, there are essentials which are outlined in the Nicene Creed.

    Is there any part of the Creed you do not agree? Do you consider the truths conveyed by the Creed unbiblical?



    Why are we concerned? Because you continually demonstrate a lack of comprehension and refuse to stop "teaching". We have red flags reported from people here concerned about Christian essentials. We have children at young ages that read this board. We are concerned that your teaching is false.

  • The Importance (and Early Use) of Creeds
    by William
    Creeds (formal statements of Christian belief) have fallen on hard times. Many Christians are uncomfortable with such objection proclamations of the exclusive Christian truth claims. But, the Christian worldview has always been a “confessional” worldview. It has been grounded in the reliable record of eyewitnesses who confessed what they saw related to the person of Jesus Christ, advanced by believers who repeated the testimony of the apostles, and continues to flourish based on the confession of those who believe. Christian Scripture reiterates the importance of confessing the truth about God and the truth about Jesus:

    Romans 10:9-10
    That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

  • The Doctrine of the Trinity: No Christianity Without It
    by William
    If any doctrine makes Christianity Christian, then surely it is the doctrine of the Trinity. The three great ecumenical creeds—the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed—are all structured around our three in one God, underlying the essential importance of Trinitarian theology. Augustine once commented about the Trinity that “in no other subject is error more dangerous, or inquiry more laborious, or the discovery of truth more profitable.” More recently, Sinclair Ferguson has reflected on “the rather obvious thought that when his disciples were about to have the world collapse in on them, our Lord spent so much time in the Upper Room speaking to them about the mystery of the Trinity. If anything could underline the necessity of Trinitarianism for practical Christianity, that must surely be it!”

    Yet, when it comes to the doctrine of the Trinity, most Christians are poor in their understanding, poorer in their articulation, and poorest of all...

  • The incontestable miracle at Fatima
    by Eddie
    Just curious what people's thoughts are on the miracle at Fatima in 1917? A quick summary of the facts:
    • 3 young children claimed a "lady from heaven" appeared out of nowhere in a remote field in Portugal where they were watching their animals, and the lady gave them a Catholic related message to relay to the people where they lived. This lady also told the children to meet her in this same location on the 13th of the month for the next 5 months at the same time where she would tell them more. Of course no one believed the children when they returned home with this news, and it caused a massive stir in their town.
    • The 3 children returned the following month, and many curious people came along with them. The children again claimed to see and speak with this "lady from heaven", but other bystanders could not see her. Since no one would believe the children, the lady told the children in July that she would perform a miracle on her last visit (Oct 13, 1917) so as "to

  • What happens when the believer dies?
    by AndThisGospel
    On another thread I asked the following question: "Why were those from Adam to Moses dying? Were they dying because the law condemned them to death? No, the law had yet to been posted by God on Mount Sinai. Therefore "sin is not imputed when there is no law" (Rom 5:13). Then why were they dying?

    Answer: Because all men share Adam's fallen life indwelt with sin and therefore stand disqualified for heaven and eternal life.

    This leads to another question: If there's nothing good in our flesh then why do some Christians teach that something goes to heaven upon the death of the believer?

    Let's look at Acts 2:29 “Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. ...34 For David did not ascend into the heavens.

    David was a man of God. He was a believer, yet we clearly see from Scripture that he did not enter heaven upon his death. Why?...

  • "Do you believe science or God?"
    by River Jordan
    When I discuss evolution with some fellow Christians, I often get in response "You either believe in science or God".

    In my experiences serving as youth leader at our church, I can't tell you how many times I've seen middle schoolers, teenagers, and young Christians struggle with this issue. Interestingly, it's almost exclusively the ones from conservative households that have the most problems. They've been raised and taught in a "you have to pick one or the other" environment. And most often they've also been fed creationist talking points like "there are no transitional fossils", "evolution is never observed", "mutations can't add information", and the like, but when they start taking biology courses they quickly find out that those talking points simply aren't true....transitional fossils exist by the thousands, we see populations evolve all the time, mutations adding information is as common as rain, and so on.

  • Why do protestants have a beef with Mary?
    by Truthseeker
    I never really understood protestants hostility towards Marian doctrines. There is not a single Marian doctrine that does not center and hinge on Jesus Himself. They are all Christocentric. To downplay her role and status is a direct effrontery to Jesus Himself. I don't go to Mary unless it was Jesus whom I was trying to get to ultimately. She is as much of a help, as Abraham helped, Noah, Moses, the prophets were in bringing souls back to God. Mary does not save souls, God does but God has deigned to make Mary someone whom we can come to for help. The power with which she can intercede for us comes from Christ Himself. She does nothing on her own. Her own sinless life has given her the privilege to be very close to God. Our veneration and prayers do not amount to deifying her.

    If Jesus was whom all we ever needed then why did God use so many outstanding people in salvation history to get his message across? Why do through the incarnation? Why bother using Mary's body and...

  • Why do most modern Christians only follow 9 of the 10 commandments? [Sabbath Day]
    by Trist
    I was told that I was required to work today and I called in and said that I would not work because I guard the 10 commandments. I live in an "at will" state and have a high probability of being fired for doing this, but I believe that I have done the right thing at this time. If I have not done the right thing, why is this so and where can it be found in scripture? My interpretation of what Jesus spoke against was not the law of Moses, but against the ridiculous additions that were made to it by the scribes and Pharisees. I also know that the Sabbath day (or seventh day) was created before the law of Moses.

    The Sabbath day appears to be a gift from the most high to mankind for rest and for learning about God (Jesus taught in the tabernacle on the Sabbath day routinely, and this is why I want to learn about the Sabbath day now), and it feels wrong to deny a gift from God.

    Be sure to follow our basic principle: Godliness is founded on truth. A test of truth is its power to promote holiness according to our Savior's rule, "By their fruits ye shall know them" (Matthew 7:20). No opinion can be more pernicious or more absurd than that which brings truth and falsehood upon the same level. On the contrary, there is an inseparable connection between faith and practice, truth and duty; otherwise it would be of no consequence either to discover truth or to embrace it. While under the conviction of the above principle, it is necessary to make effective provision that all who are admitted as teachers be sound in the faith, there are truths and forms with respect to which men of good character a...
