    Seeking honest respectful discussion of my disagreement with Christian theology.

    I find Christian theology to be greatly flawed.

    Yes, I would like to know why also. I'm a Christian but I'm open to being wrong in some areas and have changed my views on certain doctrines - the most important ones being the immortal soul and hell. My foundation, though, is still that the Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God.

    Then, find yourself a nice, comfortable and friendly "Athiest Forum." You're obviously in the wrong place unless you're searching for truth.

    Theology(the study of God) can not be flawed as it is a studying(constant searching of understanding of who God is). This can not be flawed mainly because if you have begun to study His ways, then you have not understood everything about Him. So your ignorance to who He is voids your comment that He is flawed. Those who say they "studied" who He is know that they will never understand fully His ways, so they would never say that He is flawed. As high as the heavens are above the earth so are God's ways above ours. Who has know the ind of God?

    I will, in the next post, address your statement to Christian Theology...

    Now to your terminology "Christian Theology":
    What is Christian Theology, Muslim Theology, Hindu Theology, Buddhist Theology, Greek Theology, etc?

    Is there not One God of which we speak when we say Theology? If not then you can stop there and conclude that it's not the study but the student that is in fact flawed in his perspective. Even these "polytheistic" religions will concede that the various Gods(deities) are branches, descendants, or creation of one God. Thus even the polytheists are all monotheistic in their root and simply do not understand the origins of their religion or their God. for this you can refer to my first post.

    I mean, I know this whole thread is a bit silly, but, really?
    Do you get that it's not, in any conceivable way, consistent to say that you're open to being wrong about something and then state that the thing you're open to being wrong about is the inerrant, infallible word of (a) god?

    Inerrant and infallible are words that actually mean something. You've made a rather bold and incoherent statement, have you not?
    Once in a while you'd be better listening to the fools for a change. I can see it in your eyes; it's the ones not like you you despise. I'm no different than you, it's just that I do whatever I want to. That's what sets us apart; I was free from the start. Now you're leaving. Tell me whose heart is bleeding? So, once in a while you'd be better listening to the fools for a change. What comes around follows and the truth becomes harder to swallow. So, bang bang they shoot you down. No one says a word as your body hits the ground. "Oh, pick her up, and put her down". The crowd screams aloud. She's not breathing. And the only hands that reaches, is the one alone. You've been cheating my friend. Tell me whose heart is bleeding again?

    So, once in a while, you'll be better listening to the fools for a change.

    Big whoop.

    Can you both elaborate? For example, what are your views on the following:

    1. the Trinity

    2. the full deity and humanity of Christ

    3. the spiritual lostness of the human race

    4. the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ

    5. salvation by faith alone in Christ alone

    6. assurance of eternal security of your salvation

    7. the physical return of Christ

    8. the authority and inerrancy of Scripture

    I am genuinely looking forward to your responses.
