Everyone has some “reasoning about God,”
A Comparison of Theological Systems
Noting the Overemphasis
on Continuity or Discontinuity
in the Major Theological Systems

have NO USE for the First Two listed above…

Everyone has some “reasoning about God”.
Everyone engages in Theology.
Everyone has a Theology.
The word “theology”
is derived from two Greek words,
‘theos’ is Greek meaning “God,”
and ‘logos’ is Greek meaning “word”
with the extended meanings of ‘logos’
being “reasoning” or “logic.”
GOD REASONING. GOD LOGIC.
Theology refers to “reasoning about God.”
Everyone has some “reasoning about God,” including the atheist
who rejects the “god” he has ‘reasoned’ about
(with a mind effected by sin, I might add from a Natural Sprirtual State of ‘Blindness’, or ‘Dead’)…
Christians embrace ‘reasoning about God’
and have a ‘God Logic’ attraction towards Theology.
Theology is intellectual and “Spiritual.”
Granted, there has been much theology
that has been nothing more
than academic exercises in “God-talk,”
but this ACTIVITY of THE CARNAL FLESH,
USING A MIND that is ‘REASONING’
UNDER THE PRINCIPAL of A FALLEN SINFUL NATURE
does not negate the legitimacy of genuine Theological consideration
which seeks Biblical Documentation
and Spiritual Understanding.
“DIVINE INTERPRETATION” is what I call it, when God Gives us His Words
to Campare with ALL of HIS BIBLE WRITTINGS,
to Understand WHAT GOD
WOULD HAVE US to UNDERSTAND.
THAT IS WHY,
in analyzing the Theological systems
that predominate today,
it is important that we remain
as objective as possible,
a FLAWED ‘SYSTEM’ of ‘Theology,
is EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT TO AVOID…
We do not want to misrepresent
what others believe.
We do not want to set up “straw men,”
which any wind-bag could blow down.
We do not want to engage
in ballistic brick-throwing
and unloving polemics against Christian peoples who hold differing Theological opinions.
But, THERE CAN ONLY BE
ONE INTERPRETATION OF ANY BIBLE PASSAGE.
Two, or Three ‘SYSTEMS’ ARE NOT GOING to EXIST
that ‘Each’ Give us GOD’S DIVINE INTERPRETATION.
That is Irrational.
That is Just as Irrational as saying,
“there are 4 ‘ways’ that people
look at The Book of Revelation”.
If so, 3, if not ALL 4, ‘ways’ are OFF.
Genuine and sincere Bible-believing Christians subscribe to varying Theological systems.
The sooner they get rid of, dismiss out of hand, and otherwise HAVE NO USE FOR a Flawed ‘Theological System’,
THE SOONER THEY’LL SEE
WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES.
Never do we want to “write someone off” and deny
that they are our Christian brother or sister because they organize their “belief-system” differently that we do,
provided they profess that Jesus is the Christ
and Have Received Him by Faith,
but THEY ARE THE WINNERS,
WHEN THEY SEE WHAT GOD SAYS.
is not uniformity of thought or ideology.
“IF THEY ARE NOT AGAINST US, THEY ARE FOR US”.
We seek a unity of Love
despite diversity of opinion, understanding, Interpretation or Theological explanation.
Our unity is in Christ,
not in theological constructions
A “GOD The FATHER-CENTERED,
Theological Construct” Sounds God-Honoring.
“GOD The FATHER,
JESUS CHRIST, GOD The SON, WHO is GOD,
GOD The HOLY SPIRIT”
SAY in THE BIBLE ????????
Have you ever heard of such a thing ???
I can agree that certain ‘System’ bring results
that ‘make sence’, within that ‘System’,
if the ‘System’ is BUILT ON, or BASED ON,
or BEGUN, by assuming some ERROR,
then, it isn’t giving us RESULTS FROM GOD.
‘Smile America God Loves You’
is a bumper sticker, from a ‘Bible Convention’.
“The foolish will not stand in Your sight;
You Hate all workers of iniquity”
is from The Bible.
Starting out with the first one
‘Smile America God Loves You’
may lead to the second one:
“The foolish will not stand in Your sight”.
The Problem is Infinite.
“What so and so fellow” came up with
as some bright idea
IS TO BE DISMISSED, OUT of HAND.
I defininently DO NOT CARE
“HOW MANY LINER NOTES THEY WROTE” !!!!!
In this study we will be considering
the two predominant Theological Systems
in conservative Christian Theology today
SO WE CAN FORGET THEM.
SO WE CAN RECOGNIZE THEIR FLAWS
and AVOID THEM, LIKE THE PLAUGE.
SATAN HAS INVENTED THEM
to ROB CHRISTIANS of THEIR BLESSING of GOD
They have ‘names’ that I have modified,
to good use.
( Carnal-Covenant ‘theology’,
which is Correct in every Verse of The Bible,
until God’s Covenants,
which are PROMISES of GOD,
have someone Add ‘an ordinance’,
or religious ‘rite’, (cercumcision / baptism ),
as a way to ‘Get’ into God’s Covenant (?)
Then, we have an Eternally Fatal Flaw.
The Eternal Destination of the Soul is at RISK.
And, secondly, there is what I call,
The number of different ‘gospels’
and ‘Returns of Jesus’
and vast bodies of Scripture it asks you to ignore
and the whole-cloth, man-made,
inventions of sin-cursed imagination
that have to be completely added out of thin air,
in DisspenFlesh-tional ‘theology’
are utterly ridiculious.
Not ‘utterly ridiculous’ from Satan’s perspective.
The Bible is taken away from and added to,
until it is one simple little ‘Christmas story’,
in many ways.
‘Jesus’ is taught ferociously by God-called
MEN of GOD, using these ‘Systems’,
but HOW MANY ‘JESUS-ES’ ???
Do unborn children that die go to Heaven?
Do divorced individuals
have a unforgivable sin? and no ‘Savior’?
Is Jesus Coming Back to Walk Around on Earth
Talking to a Bunch of Jews and other People that eventually tell Him to Get Lost?
Have you ever been to a Funeral
where the deceased didn’t go ‘to a Better Place’?
Then, the obvious false gospels of having a ‘baby’
in contact with water, in some fashion.
Where do these ideas come from, besides Satan and his influence on the reasonings of a person’s mind that is under the curse of the Fall of their Greatest Great Grand Dad, Adam?
They get pulled out of False Systems,
many of which may be Added into Bibles,
as liner notes, etc.,
of which Mr. Scofield, for one,
has learned A WORLD of DIFFERENCE,
upon his Entrance into Eternal Glory.
Don’t WE WANT THE TRUTH of GOD’S WORD, NOW?
That’s the Rule.
We Must Simply Have
the Enabling of The Holy Spirit.
We Can Be HONEST WITH GOD’S WORD
AND PREACH JESUS to A LOST WORLD,
WHEN WE HAVE THE ETERNAL HONESTY
OF GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT ENABLING US.
