Meet and Greet

Welcome to Apostolic Tradition. This is an open forum for all Christians. What defines Christianity? Here at Apostolic Tradition it is accepting the virgin born Jesus Christ as one's true God and Saviour, the Deity of Christ, salvation through the shedding of Christ's blood, physical resurrection of Christ along with His personal, bodily return to earth, inerrancy of Scripture, Jesus' personal, bodily return to earth to judge the living and the dead, and life everlasting. In short - it is the acceptance of the Nicene Creed.

New Testament

The New Testament is the second major division of the Christian biblical canon, the first division being the Old Testament. Unlike the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible, of which Christians hold different views, the contents of the New Testament deal explicitly with 1st century Christianity, although both the Old and New Testament are regarded, together, as sacred scripture. The New Testament has therefore (in whole or in part) frequently accompanied the spread of Christianity around the world, and both reflects and serves as a source for Christian theology. Phrases as well as extended readings directly from the New Testament are also incorporated (along with readings from the Old Testament) into the various Christian liturgies. The New Testament has influenced not only religious, philosophical, and political movements in Christendom, but also left an indelible mark on its literature, art, and music.

Old Testament

The Old Testament, of which Christians hold different views, is a Christian term for the religious writings of ancient Israel held sacred and inspired by Christians which overlaps with the 24-book canon of the Masoretic Text of Judaism. The number of these writings varies markedly between denominations, Protestants accepting only the Rabbinic canon but dividing it into 39 books, while Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, Coptic and Ethiopian churches recognise a considerably larger collection derived from the ancient Septuagint.

Defining Christianity

There are five basic principles which constitute the foundational teachings of Christianity. They are, in effect, the five pillars of Christianity. They are: (1) Inspiration and Inerrancy of Scripture; (2) Virgin birth and Deity of Christ; (3) Substitutionary atonement of Christ; (4) Bodily resurrection of Christ from the dead; and (5) the Second Coming of Christ.

Understanding Eastern Orthodox Christianity

It can be argued that the Eastern Orthodox Church is the direct successor to the Church of the Apostles. This too is a claim made by the Roman Catholic Church. While the Roman Catholic Church can legitimately claim a direct link to Peter, the Eastern Church can legitimately claim a link to all the Apostles.

The Greek Orthodox Church

The name Greek Orthodox Church (Monotonic Greek: Ελληνορθόδοξη Εκκλησία, Polytonic: Ἑλληνορθόδοξη Ἑκκλησία, IPA: [elinorˈθođoksi ekliˈsia]) is a term referring to the body of several Churches within the larger communion of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, whose liturgy is traditionally conducted in Koine Greek, the original language of the New Testament, and which share a common Greek cultural tradition. The current territory of these Churches more or less covers the areas in the Eastern Mediterranean that used to be a part of the Byzantine Empire. Their origins lie in the ancient Christian Church, and they maintain many traditions practiced in the Ancient Church. Among these traditions are the use of incense, Liturgical Worship, Priesthood, making the sign of the cross, etc. Greek Orthodox Churches, unlike the Catholic Church, have no Bishopric head, such as a Pope, and hold the belief that Christ is the head of the Church. However, they are each governed by a committee of Bishops, called the Holy Synod, with one central Bishop holding the honorary title of "first among equals."

Differences between the Eastern and Western Churches

The Great Schism

The East–West Schism of 1054, sometimes known as the Great Schism, formally divided the State church of the Roman Empire into Eastern (Greek) and Western (Latin) branches, which later became known as the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church, respectively. Relations between East and West had long been embittered by political and ecclesiastical differences and theological disputes.

The Reformation - Protestant Churches

No New Posts

Lutheranism

Lutheranism is a major branch of Western Christianity that identifies with the theology of Martin Luther, a German reformer. Luther's efforts to reform the theology and practice of the Roman Catholic Church launched the Protestant Reformation. Beginning with the 95 Theses, Luther's writings were disseminated internationally, spreading the ideas of the Reformation beyond the ability of governmental and churchly authorities to control it.

The Baptists

Baptists are Christians who comprise a group of denominations and churches that subscribe to a doctrine that baptism should be performed only for professing believers (believer's baptism, as opposed to infant baptism), and that it must be done by immersion (as opposed to affusion or sprinkling). Other tenets of Baptist churches include soul competency (liberty), salvation through faith alone, scripture alone as the rule of faith and practice, and the autonomy of the local congregation. Baptists recognize two ministerial offices, pastors and deacons. Baptist churches are widely considered to be Protestant churches, though some Baptists disavow this identity.

Pentecostalism

Pentecostalism is a renewal movement within Christianity that places special emphasis on a direct personal experience of God through the baptism in the Holy Spirit. The term Pentecostal is derived from Pentecost, the Greek name for the Jewish Feast of Weeks. For Christians, this event commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the followers of Jesus Christ, as described in the second chapter of the Book of Acts.

Messianic Judaism

No New Posts

General Discussion

Messianic Judaism is a religious movement that arose in the 1960s and 70s.It blends evangelical Christian theology with elements of Jewish terminology and ritual. Messianic Judaism states that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and "God the Son" (one person of the Trinity), and that salvation is only achieved through acceptance of Jesus as one's savior. Any Jewish laws or customs that are followed are cultural and do not contribute to attaining salvation.

Taoism and Christianity - Mutually Exclusive?

No New Posts

General Discussion

At first it would seen that Christianity and The Tao would be mutually exclusive, but perhaps things are bit more complicated. Unlike Buddhism, which explicitly denies the existence of God, The Tao makes no such statement. The Tao is actually a philosophy with some guiding principles, but it is not a religion.

There is no way one can follow the TAO and still be considered a Christian. The two are just NOT compatible.

Creation as a Science

Creation science or scientific creationism[1] is a branch of creationism that attempts to provide scientific support for the Genesis creation narrative in the Book of Genesis and disprove generally accepted scientific facts, theories and scientific paradigms about the history of the Earth, cosmology and biological evolution. It began in the 1960s as a fundamentalist Christian effort in the United States to prove Biblical inerrancy and nullify the scientific evidence for evolution

Common prayers

Prayer is the elevation of the mind and the heart to God in praise, in thanksgiving, and in petition for the spiritual and material goods we need. Our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to enter into our inner room and there pray to God the Father in secret. This inner room means the heart, the core of our being. The Apostle Paul says that we must always pray in our spirit. He commands prayer for all Christians without exception and asks us to pray unceasingly. This is the forum for sharing prayer that are acceptable to all Christians. This is NOT a place for debates.

Messianic Jewish Prayers

Jewish prayer is as ancient as the Hebrew Bible, for the Torah records that even the patriarchs prayed to God in times of distress or to give thanks. In late antiquity, the Rabbis of the Talmud established formal structures and blessings to be recited for the various worship services.
