    Default How About A Doctrine VS Heresy Forum?

    Maybe posters would be more open to asking questions in Bible Discussion when "debate" has its own forum?

    Or ... maybe have a Bible Questions Forum instead, if the admin thinks it would take too long for people to move their reformation ministry of reproving the works of darkness to the Doctrine VS Heresy Forum?

    In one sense, one forum is needed for babes in Christ that need the milk of the word whereas another forum for using the meat of the word to discern good and evil by is needed to separate the kind of topics that are in Bible Discussions?

    1 Corinthians 3:1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

    Hebrews 5:11Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

    Maybe pray about it. Maybe the Lord will give a better idea on how to organize the types of discussions in Bible Discussions forum; maybe make sub forums in it instead? Just a thought.

    The only trouble I see is that Heresy is NOT vs. Doctrine..... It is vs. Orthodoxy....... which is too often just another word for Traditions of Men.

    One man's heresy is another man's doctrine.

    A nightmare idea. Can you imagine the stream of crap the mods would have to deal with daily for what is, or isn't, listed as heresy, by users?
    And would it really stop debate? No. The issue with the BDF isn't differences or debates. The issue is pride. A group of individuals all serving themselves and their views above anything else, and needing to show everyone else how wrong they are.
    That's not going to stop by creating subforums.

    And how is the way you had posted any different in serving yourself and your views on this matter on how wrong everybody else is for posting in BDF?

    If heresy takes away a believer's joy of salvation, would you not defend the faith in Jesus Christ or not?

    Are we obligated to answer every post containing heresy? No. The burden is here and the yoke is easy as He is the One doing the ministry and for that truth we can rest in Him, but contentions will come so do not argue against that.

    1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    1 Corinthians 11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

    2 Timothy 4:1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

    Who is the arbiter that decides what is doctrine and what is heresy in the first place? In my opinion heresy is just a contrary opinion to the prevalent point of view on doctrine. That in itself does not make the heresy wrong or the doctrine right.

    Scripture has the final say. When scripture cannot go against scripture, then which ever side can align scripture in keeping the truth by both references, then they are applying His words rightly in discerning heresy from doctrine.

    Of course, such an endeavor should be done by faith in Jesus Christ in proving all things by Him and His words as kept in the KJV.

    1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

    I do not believe any moderator nor the admin can serve in that capacity, so you are right when no one can really be that arbiter, but if we use that forum as going in with the mindset trusting Jesus Christ to help us confirm His words to us, then perhaps a reformation can be held in this forum for those members involved as the Lord leads.

    2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

    I believe His promise that those who seek the truth will find it, and that the Son shall set us free by seeing that truth.

    That part is easily settled. I'll take the job.
