    In other words, an echo chamber where you can preach to the converted.

    There seems to be a confusion between theology and philosophy. The PIT and H&OT are the place to discuss philosophy, this is the area to discuss theology. If one chooses to make philosophy (humanism) their god, that's their God given rite to do so, and to follow it to the end. To live by a philosophy also takes faith, it's just not spoken of in those terms. This area is for discussing theological matters as pertains to Biblical/ Judeo Christian values, and as one can see, there is a wide variance on these matters, without introducing straight humanism into the discussions. I don't devalue anyone's beliefs, as it's your rite to hold them, as long as your rites end where mine begin, etc. Indeed, it is a place for discussion amongst the, "converted"!

    This area is far from an echo chamber. You will see plenty of disagreements, but all within a common Christian world-view.

    You wouldn't go into the muzzle loading section of this forum to argue that muzzle loaders suck and enlightened people use cartridge rifles would you?

    So our chapel, deeply theological, subforum is for Christians only?

    Why do you think the Subforum is for Biblical/Judeo Christian values only. If I missed the guidance that make that site policy please point me to it. Even if that is the case, discussing arguments against Jesus being not actually the Christ would discussing the fact that the bible might be fiction would still seem relevant. I think many here would also argue it is not just for the ""converted" the undecided or not yet converted are certainly welcome.

    Preacher Jim posted (stickied) what the Chapel is meant for and for whom.

    Chapel is a place for all to bring their needs.

    This is not a place to debate theology.nor is it a place were what church you attend is important. Here all are equal and welcome. All of us who love the Lord will be neighbors in heaven singing praises to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
    No one's opinion is more important than yours. Remember we need each other for fellowship, prayer, and community of believers.
    If we stand together, pray together we will see many miracles happen.
    Will you help us build the chapel into a place of prayer, help for those in need and a place of peace?

    With all that stated, this thread is about Divorce and suicide.

    It seems we have gotten a bit off topic.

    If someone were to start a thread about...
    "Jesus being not actually the Christ"
    OR
    "discussing the fact that the bible might be fiction"

    There might be a little bit more latitude, than discussing it in this thread.
    I'm not deleting any posts YET...but I'm getting real close.

    Thank you, I was about to say the same thing about topics.

    The thread that was the start of this subsection? Creation vs creationism

    Feel free to start a thread on other theological issues, but theological implies a belief in God and seeking his will for us.

    Thanks Jon. I will accept that guidance and keep my contributions here relevant to the Bible. Judging from some of the posts about Muslims not everyone feels so restrained but I understand if you allow some diversions.

    Unfortunately these topics are intertwined. Using the Bible as a moral authority in which to pass judgement misses the point entirely but even if one chooses to, not all scripture is of equal importance. Old vs New Testament, red letter words vs everything else....

    All this to say that one should expect some push back when using scripture outside it’s intended purpose.

    Just a word about this forum on Theology. The word means a study of God's word; that's the Christian God and his word is found in the Holy Bible.

    It's a free world and anyone can inject whatever they wish but we are under no obligation to yield the podium to interlopers.
