“The Wrath of God Satisfied” | Scot McKnight

Do you see propitiation at the core of the atonement? Do you think God’s wrath was pacified (propitiated) in the cross? Not all agree with the propitiation proponents, and one who did not agree was C.F.D. Moule. Moule in his characteristic succinct way summarizes the NT texts, and I quote them below, after the jump. …

The Horror of Meticulous Determinism | Jesus Creed

Those holding the divine meticulous determinism view argue that Boyd’s view undermines God’s sovereignty and omniscience while Boyd argues that his view magnifies those realities in God.

“Only Begotten:” Taxonomy & the Genetics of the Messiah

Monotheists, who do not believe in the Trinity, staunchly reject the tenet that Yeshua / Jesus is the "Son of God." To such monotheists, the very notion that God would procreate is absurd. What is this? God has a son? On the other hand, trinitarian monotheists see biblical data, which support their belief that Yeshua / Jesus …

The “Jesus Only” Heresy

"Jesus Only" is a cult movement, which seeks to infiltrate all sects of Christendom, in order to spread heresy (a.k.a. false teaching). Their main message is that those who have been baptized in the Name of the Trinity must undergo rebaptism in Jesus' name only. They build their illogical dogma on Acts 2:38. Peter said …
