Theology Club Rules

For years many TOL members have asked for a special set of forums where theology could be discussed without the distraction of troublemakers and other distractions. To post in the Theology Club forums you must apply for membership (yes even TOL subscribers must apply). Almost all memberships will be approved however your membership will be revoked if you engage in anti-Christian rhetoric, repeated cases of red-herrings, quibbling over terms (equivocation), strawmen, false allegations, and other devices contrary to honest debate. In short the Theology Club is a place for honest and friendly discussion regarding theological topics.

  • Theology Club: Is this forum different?

    Hi, i go by Faither. I've just recently come back to TOL a few weeks ago. Since then, ive been posting in the Ect forum. I started posting about a word that i understand has lost its meaning over the decades. I posted the Greek definitions out of the Strongs and Vines, and then put those definitions in their perspective Scriptures.

    This is the response i received, the majority by one person, but at least 10 different members make up this list. So what i'm asking , is this forum theology club any different or will i just be adding to this list? Thanks.

    You need to form your own opinion. But I would say this is not a relevant subject for this board. This board is for debating open theology.
    Your views on faith were already previously discussed by me in post 65 of my Big Picture thread. You are welcome to discuss it further there if you wish to.
    As this thread shouldn't be in this forum, I will say no more on it.
    Total Misanthropy.
    Uncertain salvation.
    Luck of the draw.
    Irresistible damnation.
    Persecution of the saints.

    RevTestament: It doesn't matter to me too much that the "New Testament wasn't written in Hebrew.
    Dialogos: Calvin, as a sinner, probably got some things wrong.
    Brandplucked: I'm shocked that other people disagree with me.

      I read the intro, i'm still not sure what open view theology means exactly. Could you define that more clearly?

          Open Theism claims that the future is open (and not settled) because God is free and eternally creative and will always have new thoughts. The Settled View claims that the future is utterly and exhaustively settled

            People have tried to... in your other threads, but clearly you won't be satisfied until someone agrees with you. Now, you've been told in every possible way imaginable, but you're looking for a holy grail that doesn't exist. You have no one to blame but yourself if you've failed to clearly present your case for this long lost meaning of faith.

            Did anyone call you prideful? If not, you can add that to your list.

              Open view theology is the study of being open to being called names like - idiot, lost, blasphemer, etc

                I cannot find any of those terms in my theology dictionary. Must be more liberal theology. What comes to mind is "do not judge."

                    Without providing the Scripture. Gods says in His Word we exist for His pleasure. His pleasure is playing "us" to the eons of time. In a sense He's showing us off to other universes. I can't imagine "us" being show quality if everyone already knows the ending.

                    This has already been discussed many times probably.

                      Does open theism only pertain to the future, and how God relates to that future? Or does open theism apply to all facets of the God man relationship?

                        If i were to swim out and save you from drowning, pull you onto shore, i wouldn't have to talk you into automatically liking me. Why is it so different here? Your replies are as if i swim out, pull you onto shore, and you automatically don't like me because you don't like the kind of shoes i'm wearing when i saved you from drowning.

                        Is it really my shoes? Or are you just more comfortable drowning?

                          This thread needs to stick to the theology OV topic. It has a poor title and seems to be more a personal argument than a theological debate.
                          So, what?

                          believe it!

                            Actually namecalling and attacking the poster is discouraged in the Theology club.

                              You probably know how i was treated in ECT. I was only trying to find out if this forum was different. So far your the first one to acknowledge my question.
