Purpose of the Theology Group

This forum is about learning, & sharing, and it is driven out of a desire to help people learn how to think by opening their minds to diverse views, learning from history, wrestling with difficult issues, and graciously engaging with others.

I would say that one goal is not so much to teach good theology, as important as that is, but to teach people to think. The desire here is to teach Irenic (peaceful) Theology, and not Polemic (War like) Theology. Which the latter is ok, but it is not the purpose of the Theology Group. I would hope that as we discuss all opposing views, we represent them as accurately as we can. R.J.

2 Timothy 2:24-26 "The Lord’s slave must not quarrel, but must be gentle to everyone, able to teach, and patient, instructing his opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance to know the truth. Then they may come to their senses and escape the Devil’s trap, having been captured by him to do his will." - CSB

On the statement of Gods omnipresence.Yes in Epesians 4:6 it says We have one God and father of all,who is above all thorough all and in you all. Remember Jesus told us of his father is a spirit being.Remember a spirit isnt corporeal,it has not body and is not subject to physical constraints.

I thank God that Roy has very sound doctrine and has been giving you the biblical sound doctrines. i would encourage you to start discussions here when you have new or more questions. I had missed your questions and apologize for that. The Lord blessed you my friend.

About the Holy Spirit pushing us down. I think you might be referring to something called being slain in the Spirit. That can happen but I don't think it is the primary method of the Spirit talking to us. He speaks to us through His Word and confirms to us through His Spirit. I grew up around those who claim to have been pushed down (as you say it). I have never been pushed down. I have said many times that if it were the Spirit doing the pushing I would never be able to resist. I don't think it is required but obviously it did happen in the Bible. Usually, however, it was when the Spirit was manifested in power or an angel appearing, etc. When that happened the person being pushed over fell forward on their face. I believe you can receive from the Spirit without that. If that does ever happen to you, you will not be needing to ask any questions about that experience.

There are many, many verses that would assure us of our salvation.
2 Ti 1:12 ... because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day. NIV

Jesus identified those who are His by those who have faith in Him. Your faith testifies that you are His child. We learn to trust in Christ since we know for certain that we will fail. He will never fail us. He will complete the work in us that He has begun.

Bless you brother.

what assures a christian that he is saved without raising questions?
Comment by Emmanuel Opoku on November 1, 2010 at 12:00pm
Does the Holy Spirit pushes us down to the floor whenever He wishes to talk through us?

On the subject of the death of saints. I think Paul said it best when he said "he preferred to be away from the body and present with the Lord."

2 Co 5:6-8

6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 We live by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. NIV

An apostate is one who commits apostasy. Apostasy is the act of forsaking one's religion. This term can be applied to all religions. For instance, if a member of the Islam religion became a Christian, he would be considered by them to be an apostate. Apostasy is spoken of in the following verse:

2 Th 2:3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. NIV

The Greek word there for "rebellion" is "apostasia" which means a falling away or a forsaking. The apostate is one who would forsake his religion.
