Classical vs Latin Atonement@DaveXR650 ,
I hope we can continue our discussion here.
This will show why I believe Penal Substitution Theory is not capable with any other view of the Atonement.
What are the specific biblical instructions concerning translating God’s words into other languagesI would like to know what God has to say about it. Can someone help me?
Systematic TheologyReading through a few members posts I thought we may need to define Systematic Theology (especially when systematic theology is equated with Scripture itself).
Systematic Theology is "[a]n approach to the Bible that seeks to draw biblical teachings and themes into a self-consistent, coherent whole, in conversation with the history of Christian theological reflection and contemporary issues confronting the church. This is distinct from—yet related to—the approach of biblical theology, which...
Should we read our Bible?Looking over threads in this board it is obvious that many have an interest in theology and Bible study. That is good.
But at the same time it seems that many (most?) do not read God's Word.
Instead they approach Scripture like one would an encyclopedia (for those younger than me, an encyclopedia was a big book with a lot of topics we used before Al Gore invented the internet).

More onlyismsWhen one is dealing with an definitive identity of God's word we are dealing with an onlyism.
John 14:6 is an onlyism all genuine Christians agree on.
KJV onlyism divides believers.
New Testament Greek texts is a potential problem. TR, NU, MT and F35.
Are there any Bible teachers you fully agree with.I have been a Christian since the summer of 1962. I have yet to find any one Bible teacher that I can agree with on all points (100%). All secondary issues.
PuritanismI've noticed a resurgence over the past several decades towards the Puritans. I enjoy reading some Puritan writings, especially Puritan poetry.
I think among Reformed churches interest has grown as Reformed theology has been facing challenges. On the other side there is declining doctrine in mainstream churches.
I thought it would be interesting to take a quick look at the Puritans, starting with a very brief history of who these people were.
Puritanism was religious reform movement...
