  • Re: Inductive Bible Study

    Hi John: I had a similar question on my mind: Are there topical inductive Bible studies? Much to my surprise the answer is yes. If you google for some of the following samples, you will find there are some: Inductive Bible study on Holiness. Inductive Bible study on Stewardship. Inductive Bible study on Christian Priorities in Life. So the main problem

    Ok, now I understand, I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keVxUdvYZe4 In a Douglas Moo quick collection search, only 3 resources appeared that could have something to say. As far as answering, you are welcome. I wonder if you have a blog where you touch upon all the interesting issues that you post about? I have a very particular view of Job

  • Re: Moo

    Hi David Paul: is this more or less what you are looking for?: Moo kind of says that God has always chosen a remnant within physical Israel: one of the sons of Isaac, etc. Maybe punishes is for the other non chosen physical Israel, for being far from God. Then he says that there is Spiritual Israel, that must be the Gentiles under the New Pact. and

    [quote user="David Wanat"]I am firm, you are stubborn, they are pigheaded.[/quote] LOL, good one. Why I go through all this fuss? Ok, I will have to explain my view (which is multi-tradition by the way). There is revealed truth, and hopefully that revealed truth will help us get to true religion, and then to true denomination.

From what I have read so far in the first book in my search depicted in previous post, it seems to deal with a shallow discipleship, instead of particular denominations: :Cultural “churchianity,” built on personal preferences, narcissistic

The same issue occurs where problematic language of early centuries is used in a contemporary setting The forums had the example of "Popish" IIRC. People addressing a small, insulated group get by using language that is not acceptable in a broader context. One also can get by using a term

    [quote user="Greg Dement"]I have found the banter fruitful, at least for me. Unless I am reading their tones incorrectly the discussion has been respectful with some occasional light-hearted sarcasm. There are some points of view I don’t agree with but they have made me look with different eyes. It makes me realize that we can take something purely

    Disciple II posted: “… I think there is value in an apologetics guide, there is most likely a silent broad swath of users who would find it useful to varying degrees or not use it at all and that's fine. “ Agree. David Paul posted: “… but the need to see what's what (from the Bible's perspective) and behave as expected

    [quote user="David Wanat"]It's one thing to express concern over an issue. It's quite another to use a derogatory blanket term for it. "Churchianity" is one such term. "Politically incorrect" is another. These only seek to discredit the target of the term.[/quote] The concept of focusing too much on things not aligned with the great commission is clear

    [quote user="David Wanat"]Interestingly enough, the Wiktionary entry recognizes it as a derogatory term. So, perhaps it’s not in keeping with the commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves to use it?[/quote] Now you got me confused. From all posters you were one of the principals talking about TRUTH, the ultimate goal of apologetics. But then

    Ok, getting back to the subject of the thread, I found a very useful resource that unfortunately is not in Logos. Morley, Brian K. Mapping Apologetics: Comparing Contemporary Approaches . Downers Grove, Illinois: IVP Academic, an imprint of Intervarsity Press, 2015. Lovely diagrammatic synthesis of the different approaches to apologetics. Maybe a future

    [quote user="David Wanat"]Apologetics exists to correct misconceptions and remove difficulties that a person can have that block them from considering the truth.

    [quote user="David Paul"]Does it? It seems to attempt much more, wandering into inappropriate realms. It seems to muddy waters rather than clear the air. Specifically, it seems to be a tool (which some might perceive as a weapon) for particularized self-justification.[/quote] True. Sometimes it looks like if Christ is left out for Churchianity. Peace
