Is Theology always seen as fact?
« on: November 27, 2009, 10:47:30 AM »
In a thread asking the question, "Did God create the Sun Twice,"  or words to that effect, I want to thank you John for closing the thread.  I would have done the same thing and should have just walked away from the pointless arguing and distortions of what I had posted, by my antagonist.

That there are those who are incapable of understanding that theology is not always fact until so proven and the discussion should be relegated to Scriptural facts to verify all points of the discussion, is what irritated me with the motivation to continue.

Thanks again and my apology for letting it go as far as it did without just walking away.

Blessings,

Quasar

I thank God we are saved by grace and not by getting an A on a theology test.  I don't think any belief system gets it 100% correct all the time.  We are talking about an infinate God, and mankind's attempts to understand and/or explain HIM will always fall short.

I'm glad you were not offended when I closed the thread. I was concerned that I might offend, and I'm glad to see it didn't (at least with you).

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
