Sudsy, can you direct me to some of these other Scriptures? I would like to review them so that I can understand better what you are saying.

Re: Atonement model?

I know some theologians who are not dogmatic and they are very refreshing to talk to and discuss ideas and research with. Of course, you'll have to deal with unvarnished truth when talking to them - which often is at odds with the Protestant gospel. Sacred cows get burnt up. And I'm fine with theol...

Re: Why Obey ?

Martin Luther, whose thinking undergirds Protestant thinking, said in his introduction to the New Testament that the gospel of John was to be far preferred to the other gospels because it had the true essence of the gospel while Matthew, Mark, and Luke didn't. Similarly, Paul is to be preferred ove...

Re: Why Obey ?

That is just the point. We don't all agree. The typical Anabaptist view of salvation is quite different than the typical Protestant view. This forum is more often going to present the typical Anabaptist view. My question is, Are you here to learn about Anabaptist views of things such as salvation, ...

Re: Why Obey ?

One of the hallmarks of "Protestant Salvation" is focusing exclusively on the book of John, ignoring the testimony of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. I think all 4 gospels are needed. They all, taken together, stress these things: - Jesus offers to save us from sin - Saving includes here right n...

Re: Why Obey ?

But then there are those who are the same 7 days a week in any and all situations. My grandma was one of these. Full of joy and love and peace that opened many doors for her sharing her faith. I'm just saying I don't see much of this anymore and I know I am not living in this way yet I believe it i...

Re: Simple Questions About Head Coverings

I never understood why Mennonite women in our area (and we have many types of Mennonites) who wear a head piece 24/7 because they might pray at any point in the day, have husbands that don't go without a hat 24/7 for the same reason. The women could easily pull out a head piece of sorts when they w...

Simple Questions About Head Coverings

I want to ask a few simple questions about head coverings. I do not want to debate this topic in this thread. Rather I just want simple, straightforward answers to the following questions: Are there Conservative Anabaptist Churches (or other churches for that matter) that teach and practice that the...

Re: Atonement model?

So the function of satisfaction for Aquinas is not to placate a wrathful God or in some other way remove the constraints which compel God to damn sinners. Instead, the function of satisfaction is to restore a sinner to a state of harmony with God by repairing or restoring in the sinner what sin has...
