Roswald D. Hitchcock made a translation into English in 1884, the year after Bryennios had published the Greek text. 
Recognizing irregular church doctrines.We as Baptists do not always agree on the identity of irregular church church doctrines. There are those we as Baptist hold in common that constitute Baptist districtives.
Such as believer's immersion.
One thing to note, irregular church doctrines are always contrary to the clear Apostolic teaching of the New Testament.
Christ's DeathI'm not sure this technically belongs here, but I'm putting it here because it is based on a Calvinistic understanding of the Cross that is shared with Arminianism yet not with historic Christianity.
it has been explained that Christ was made "sin", but nor literally. This was Christ bearing our sins (I agree with him on that point).
But from there many hold that God punished our sins laid on Christ in order to redeem us. Our sin became Christ's and His righteousness became ours (our...
Christ's Own People"Having loved his own, which were in the world, he loved them unto the end."— John 13:1.
Sweet thought, my soul, for thee everlastingly to cherish; thy Jesus is the same, and his love the same, amidst all thy changings: yet he abideth faithful. His love, and not thy merit, was the first cause of thy salvation; and the same love, and not thy undeservings, is the final cause wherefore thou art not lost. But mark in this blessed scripture, how many sweet and lovely things are said. Jesus hath...
Christians, Put Down Your Guns*Revelation 13:10*
If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
"If any man shall kill with the sword, with the sword must he be killed ... This means that, "Christianity can never be defended by force; the man who takes the sword perishes by the sword." Ladd interpreted the passage to mean that, "There is divine retribution; the last...
The PuritiansIn my thread about "what denomination are you"
several had a high % for Puritian
What do you know about those who were Puritans ?
Why are then not current Puritan churches?
Do you tend to agree with this Wiki article?
Words with baggageWe see several places in scripture where people are made "whiter than snow," or "white as snow." I wonder how non-caucasian looking people, might react to the idea that white is good or pure, but darker tones are blemished?
Should we translate such "outdated cultural depictions" as "pristine as snow?
“Come now, and let us debate your case,”
Says the LORD,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They shall become as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be...
LapsarianismI found these definitions:
These three theological terms, discussed among Calvinist thinkers, deal with God’s predestination of certain individuals to be saved. The term lapsarian is related to the English word lapse; mankind’s fall into sin was a “lapse” in that it was a “slip” or a “falling” from their original state of innocence. The focus of infralapsarianism (infralapsarian), sublapsarianism (sublapsarian), and supralapsarianism (supralapsarian) is sequence—the order in which God...
"The Gospel" - What Is It?"The Gospel" - What Is It?
For centuries the term "the gospel" has been thrown around. What does the word gospel even mean? This one article will not suffice but should rather start one on the path of thinking about the gospel.
The word gospel means "good news". Whatever the gospel message is it is one of good news. Most messages preached in the average church are not messages of good news at all. The most popular gospel is a false one and the word of God warns us in many places to beware...
