    Hookset, Christians of all sects have some very important things in common known in the church as "the essentials". The trinity, the deity of Christ, his crucifixion, resurrection. That it is necessary trust in Christ to enter heaven. There are a ton of nuances between the many sects how you go about all of that, but those are the basics and essentials that have been agreed upon by all for centuries.

    There are some from liberal academia teaching Gnosticsm or humanism in the place of Christianity claiming to be Christians, it is not that shocking they have always been there. Knowing they exist is good, chasing them down in my view is a waste of time. In Colsons case Mclaren wrote a very public article criticizing Colson, Mclaren is a publicity hound and has attacked conservative Christians publicly on more than one occasion it seems to me it is usually about the time he is about to release a book.

    I'm aware of that. I was raised in a Christian home and have a significant level of experience with Baptists, Methodists and Episcopalians. I have sent all of my children to private Christian schools. I just get tired of the "my way or the highway" attitude some so-called Christians have. I little to Taliban-ish for me.
    There's probably nothing to be gained by my contributions to this thread, so I'll politely bow out now.

    Thats, the problem with the Taliban ..the good guys tend to stay indoors when they come around proselytizing. I appreciate your sentiments.

    Save us the huge pile of scriptural quotes and just tell us what you believe.


    Matt,

    I believe those "huge pile of scriptural quotes"...did you read them?


    And in what way was my original question "dubious"?


    In that your question gives rise to uncertainty about God's preserved Word of truth. If, as you suggest in your question, there is no way to discern what truth is in terms of Christian doctrine and what is false Christian doctrine then what hope have we been given? Did God leave us to the "ravenous wolves" described in scripture (teachers of false doctrine) unprepared to do battle?

(John 1:1-4NKJV)

    None! That is because man has not come to realize the "why" of our exsistance and never will.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Booty, you really cannot be serious with that statement?

    Do you really know what is being talked about when the term Gospel is being used? If you do I would like to read your understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ...please post what you understand the Gospel to be.

    Here is one definition from Wikipedia;
    In Christianity, a gospel (from Old English, gōd spell "good news") is to be generally one of the first four books of the New Testament that describe the birth, life, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. The four canonical texts are the Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark, Gospel of Luke and Gospel of John, probably written between 65 and 100 AD.

    My definition;
    Ancient Middleastern man’s attempt to explain his exsistance.

    As a child I read most of it and today I view it as fiction.
