SB,I wouldn't want apologetics in the theology forum because people already think theology is a synonym for apologetics.
Perhaps we create an apologetics forum and you can lead the conversations?
I've always said i did not want to censor topics. But, we need mature Christians who know how to discuss these topics without turning them into a slugfest that goes on ad- nausium like the OSAS OSNAS consumed this site, or before that the other battles that waged against each other.
By mature Christians, i don't mean apologetically adept. I mean a Christian who can disagree with his bother, but not let his pride or zeal consume him to the point that he has to be right, and his primary motive is to convert the other to his way of understanding. For me, that's narcissistic and self serving which doesn't advance the body of Christ forward because it only points to ones insecurity or overbearing sinful nature.
I agree we need an Apologetics forum on CFnet. I'll be happy to lead with a topic or 2 but I don't have the time to be engaged in all threads. I'm working on Christian academic articles for publication this year.
We also could have another forum on World Religions. A couple days ago I uploaded to my homepage a new article in which I had a major dialogue with a Hindu on a secular, Australian e-journal, The Hindu worldview clashes with reality.
Try this topic: ‘Inclusiveness’ prostitutes the English language.
How would you respond to the statement: The God (Allah) of Islam is the same as the God of Christianity.
