The Theology Pit #1

In this Theology Pit I look at 3 different christian church statements of faith and show my thought process as I'm reading them.  I focus on Justification but I also go over what a Statement of Faith tells me about a denomination.

I'm concentrating on the concept of Grace being infused in the believer, as opposed to Grace being the favor of God forensically declared.  The key fact being where the action is taking place, in man or God.

I also spell out what is meant by works based salvation, merit based salvation, and grace based salvation.

Salvation Part 17

In this Pit I talk about what seems to be my least favorite group in theological history, the Anabaptists. Where they came from, how broad the term is, and what they believe.

I almost skipped over them completely. I almost think they did more harm than good but, the good they did was really good. For that I am greatful. The bad they did, and the pain that it still causes the Church today, is really bad.

Salvation Part 10

In our series we need to have an understanding on who has been elected by God and who can be elected. Does God give everyone the opportunity to be saved or is that reserved for only those are chosen.

Big questions I try to answer in just an hour. I don't think I answered them fully enough but, I think I did for us to have a better understanding of why it's necessary to have a grasp on this for our discussion.
