The Chicago Statement of Faith is based on willful dishonesty.
The Chicago Statement of Faith begins with willfull dishonesty and depends on the willful ignorance of the audience.
The very first paragraph sets the argument and makes it clear that it is based on the total denial of reality and factual evidence and instead is totally dependent on the dogma of the Cult.
quote:The authority of Scripture is a key issue for the Christian church in this and every age. Those who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are called to show the reality of their discipleship by humbly and faithfully obeying God's written Word. To stray from Scripture in faith or conduct is disloyalty to our Master. Recognition of the total truth and trustworthiness of Holy Scripture is essential to a full grasp and adequate confession of its authority.
It is a position based not just on dishonesty and ignorance but rather on an active and willful adoption of dishonesty and ignorance and a basic life choice.
Re: The Chicago Statement of Faith is based on willful dishonesty.
Actually it's based on the historical understanding of inerrancy whether that sits well with your personal judgment or not.
Yet you provide no evidence that was actually true and even if it were true that would not change the fact that it begins with an assertion that the base is a willful denial of reality and honesty.
And the men who put it together are leaders of evangelicalism whether that sits well with your judgment or not.
Correct, it was put together a covin of "True Believers" and "Fellow Travelers". That does not change the fact that it begins with an assertion that the base is a willful denial of reality and honesty.
They did die, as a result of the Fall, they physically died, they were no longer immortal, but death began right away with the death of powers and capacities they had previously had.
Utter Bullshit Faith and totally non-Biblical. You really refuse to actually read the Bible just like so many "Biblical Christians"
Adam & Eve were NEVER immortal according to the Genesis 2&3 myth, death existed before they were even created according to the Genesis 2&3 myth and they lost no powers but rather gained powers they had not had before according to the Genesis 2&3 myth.
But please keep providing evidence that Biblical Inerrancy is simply dishonest, based on ignorance and denial of what is actually written in the Bible and the assumption that the followers are incapable of reason or connecting with reality.
Also, in case you had not noticed, but the Westminster Catechism is also not the Bible but rather like the Chicago Statement of Faith another example of defining dogma, in the case of the Westminster Catechism to try to hide the contradictions between the Scottish and English Protestant churches. It is as much political as theological.
They aren't given status anywhere near equal to the Bible of course, but they are considered to be very important learning tools that express the beliefs adhered to by believers.
They express the beliefs adhered to by those who believe those things; in other words, the dogma.
BUT they are not Biblical and there is NO Fall in the Bible and Adam & Eve were never immortal and Death entered the world before Adam & Eve were created and they lost no powers but instead became more like God and THOSE facts are Biblical.
Anyone that believed Jesus taught moral principles would know that Jesus said reality supersedes God's Laws and even God agreed that mere common courtesy is sufficient justification for ignoring God's Laws.
Not really weird. Plants don't bleed. They were specifically made for eating but animals only became food for humans after the Flood, although many had become carnivores at the Fall, preying on each other. The "hucksters" are being true to scripture when they say all animals were vegetarian before the Fall. There is another clue in the fact that at the New Creation "the lion will lie down with the lamb" and all animals will again eat plants.
And where is the evidence to support such utter ridiculous assertions Faith?
Where is there a Fall in the Bible?
Where is there evidence animals became carnivore after the Flood?
For that matter, which Biblical Flood are you pointing to or are you still denying the fact there are two mutually exclusive Biblical Flood stories in the Bible?
