I am opening this thread because a member, @JesusFan , seems fascinated with the NPP but at the same time confuses the "classic view" of Atonement with the NPP.
I figure others here more knowledgeable than I may be able to help him. I know some of the NPP, but the topic has not really sparked my interest as it seems problematic at the start.
The New Perspective on Paul (NPP) is a movement (with many different views) focused on the writings on Paul. The NPP is primarily associated with...
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made....
Acts 2:47 – The Bible vs Human Theology
“αἰνοῦντες τὸν θεὸν καὶ ἔχοντες χάριν πρὸς ὅλον τὸν λαόν ὁ δὲ κύριος προσετίθει τοὺς σῳζομένους καθ' ἡμέραν τῇ ἐκκλησία” Robert Estienne (Stephanus 1550)
The first English New Testament from the Greek, was carried out by the English “Reformed”, theologian and scholar, William Tyndale, in 1526. Tyndale translated the above Greek into English:

Interview with ARCHBISHOP CARLO MARIA VIGANÒ APOSTOLIC NUNCIO
Martin Luther and “Here I Stand”!
“Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Scriptures and by clear reason (for I do not trust in the pope or councils alone, since it is well known that they have often erred and contradicted themselves), I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted. My conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. May God help me. Amen.”
It is debatable if...
I've enjoyed my time on the baptist board these past few months, however, there is something rather puzzling to me as it seems as if baptists are in the minority here on the board. There appears to be a lot of non-denominationalists here, as well as Catholics and others. It seems to take away from the title of the site, and more or less turns it into another Christian forum. Can this really be considered a baptist site with so many non-baptists on here? Can helpful baptist discussions be had...
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after...
Why are There So Many Different Interpretations of the Bible?
Often, when BB members - one will say YOU ARE WRONG!
IMHO, we should be careful about condemning a BB member
True, they might be wrong from YOUR point of view -
But we should also look at their point of view as well.
For example - dispensation - some are so against it.
but on the other hand some may see it as a minor issue
But most important - keep in mind that Interpretations can differ.
Our overall concern should be...
Our Lord Jesus Christ began to instruct his disciples at the very end of the previous age, when he came to fulfill all the OT prophesied about him.
Ga 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past (before he sent his Son) unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by...
