Help me connect the dots. Long-time posters please add what you know.

This is almost entirely pieced together from snapshots on web.archive.org

>2013

8chan created by hotwheels in October

>2014:

/christian/ created in September

Alex is the owner. He's a Southern Baptist.

Views on moderation: "I am personally a Baptist, and will defend my views as a poster, but dialogue and points made from other perspectives won't be deleted."

The board reaches 6,000 posts by the end of the year.

>2015

The 8chan site has some outages and breaks in November as development progresses.

/christian/ IRC channel couples the board

Alex remains BO

Board hits 238,000 posts by the end of the year.

/christianity/ created in February

BO cites perception of censorship on /christian/ as the cause.

"I noticed /christian/ had a lot of censorship so I'm starting a new board. I promise not to delete anything simply because I disagree."

Dead board. 154 posts by the end of the year.

/christ/ is created in April. It had some activity prior in 2014, but was somehow deleted or lost and the new first post is 4/19/15.

Rules: "This board is for Christians of all denominations; that being said, people of other religions, agnostics, and atheists, are very welcome to post, ask questions, and debate with us if they so desire. Spam will be deleted. This board is also SFW."

Board log is made available and stickied at top.

The board reaches 8,800 posts by the end of the year.

I'm not sure if anyone even knows who I am (not that it matters) because I only posted occasionally, but I was a Korean who often replied to people asking about Korean Christianity and other related subjects. I do remember cuckvol and remember Alex as being an absentee mod… and the flags being available at some point, and at one point it was removed for a while until it came back. I noticed something very strange along the years that there was a huge Catholic bias that seemed to have been growing, even on their Discord server where I looked at. I definitely did not feel like I belonged there and after at least a year hiatus from this boards, I return to see the blatant Catholic bias even more apparent, with no one doing anything about it, people saying "all Protestants should be dead" or something (I'll try finding the thread later), with the guy saying "I'm glad the BO is on our side". I thought such incendiary comments would be more banworthy than the things I've come across here, so I was surprised, to say the very least.

I grew up in a liberal household in a liberal part of America; I was raised a christian by my parents whom I love.

I don't hate anyone and I certainly don't hate anyone for their race but one thing that angers me deep down is race-mixing. I don't necessarily see miscegenation as a bad thing but ever single multi-racial couple at my school is pretty much a black dude with a white girl almost without fail. This wouldn't be bad if the couples were a bit more "diverse" but no, deep down I probably hate these people but I want to love them just as God loves me.

Anyone have any advise on how I can deal with this?

I am a non demon Christian. For the past month or so I been studying Romans and I just cant shake off how baptism is described as being buried with Christ. Not sure, I looked at Beasley Murray's book on baptism in the NT but it only just seems like baptismal regeneration, which isnt what I was told by my evangelical friends.

It would be useful if there was a big database of Christian resources.So many supposedly unbiased, objective internet monopolies are hostile to Christianity. What if there was a conclusive database that collected as much history, theology, and the like as possible, while also warning away from false teachings. As a plus, make it work like the sites with the entire Bible on them, but weigh the pros and cons of each translation.

The problem would be approaching resources that denominations disagree on. Would there be different databases for each denomination, or an analysis of each denomination and their views?

Except that this is just a thread for sharing Christian resources. That would be a huge undertaking regarding things I'm not an authority on, so I'm not equipped to do so. I suppose it doesn't have to just be old stuff, any sites or media focused on Christian content can also be shared here. Also I just took these images from /christian/, I'm not positive on everything in them.

You're in the Bible belt. There is no shortage of conservative Protestant churches where you are, they're just usually not the ones with the billboards.

The issue you're identifying isn't ubiquitous across Protestant churches, and it isn't outright solved in eastern orthodoxy or roman catholicism.

If you wanted to go to a traditional Latin mass, it looks like there is an FSSP parish pretty close to you. The main mass is at 9 AM. The other masses are listed as low masses (meaning the priest wouldn't chant). Also, if you go this Sunday (Easter) evidently they have an easter egg hunt and barbeque.

He's referring to a passage in 2 Thessalonians where Paul says that "the man of sin will enthrone himself in the temple of God." Some people take that to mean that there will be a literal Third Temple that the Antichrist will take over, but personally I think it's talking about the Church since every other time Paul refers to a Temple of God, he's talking about the Christian Church, not a literal building. And Paul was writing all of this when the Second Temple was still standing.

presuming you mean 3:21

> The problem is in Greek, the usage of the term in early papyri shows that it is literally contracts signed to enter into a trade agreement.

I'm lost, are you saying there was a different term on certain papyrus manuscripts that you think is correct, which isn't used now?

>Baptism is like a contract

yes, the sign of the new covenant. The question is what the terms of the "contract" are on our end. Are you just reasoning that such a "contract" must necessarily require work on man's side, even if it seems to contradict Paul's labor on justification by faith?

Consider the covenant that God made with Himself in Genesis 15.

>Baptism by the Spirit in the New Testament is also not the Evangelical born again thing but a parallel to John the Baptist's baptism. We know this thanks to Acts 2 which shows this.

I'm not following what you mean. Who teaches something like this?

>"Repent and be baptized" means baptism is a saving work

Contradiction with Eph 2. Baptism is inextricably linked with belief unto salvation, but is not presented here as a necessary condition.

It is not an evangelical argument that baptism is not an instruction to everyone. The only debate is the role it plays in salvation.

You're kind of stringing a bunch of thoughts together and it's clear you've argued over a number of key passages, but it's really impossible for me to follow. Did you read something that persuaded you to this position? If so, what was it? Who teaches what you're saying about John's baptism?

You have a complex systematic theology on this, but that does not permit the fundamental error you're making: salvation as a result of works contradicts God's word. Dance around this fact at your own peril.

1)the term "ἐπερωτάω" in 1Peter 3:21 in early Greek papyri all refer to contracts used in trade relationships. This is against your view because no Evangelical or Baptist view Baptism as a contract that must be signed to enter into a relationship. The fact that you cannot understand my mention of "trade contract" also essentially makes what you present as a non argument. Because it does not tell us why your understanding accords to the text or why it is consonant with the usage of ἐπερωτάω in Greek. People who want to establish trade relations do so by signing a contract to rectify and enact the agreement. And this is why it is the means where one enters into trade relationships. Hence the parallel is clear for Baptism. It is the contract signed to enter the New Covenant

https://www.academia.edu/12720416/_Confessing_God_from_a_Good_Conscience_1_Peter_3_21_and_Early_Christian_Baptismal_Theology

2)Non argument. Because it isnt some sign of something already done in the past but the means by which one enters into the relationship. As my point on ἐπερωτάω shows, what I presented is accurate to the grammatical context contra your view. In fact in the OT there are plenty of examples of visible signs given to assure and reinforce God's promises. For instance Gen 9:12–17 where the rainbow is the sign of God's promise to Noah. In Gen 13:14–17, God's promise to Abraham is shown to be binded through sight. These signs are the visual means by which the contract or promise given by God is sealed.

Also Galatians 3 shows whosoever is Baptized into Christ, puts on Christ. And no, this is not the Baptism of Spirit ala Baptist born again. It's water Baptism because this is the only way Paul's point can make sense, as Baptism by its own meaning in Greek is always water related. Hence 1Corinthians saying the Israelites were Baptized into Moses refer to the Red Sea crossing. The water wasnt a metaphor or some Spirit. It was real water that parted! Josephus uses the term to refPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm not trying to give you a master's thesis man, I'm just trying to understand what you're saying.

By the way you're not; you're just throwing a bunch of talking points up.

You're reasoning that sola fide is incompatible with 1 Peter 3:21 because of the use of eperotao, and the term's use in other greek documents of the time is the basis for a change in interpretation on that operative word. Is that right?

>during justification

The use of these words at that point in your post is strictly a denial of the gospel of Jesus Christ, because our justification before God is not something that occurs within us where we are made truly pleasing to God in and of ourselves and declared righteous on the basis that we truly are righteous and good. We are not declared righteous on the basis of something pleasing in us, because we are nothing but displeasing to a holy God. This is why God declares us just, because we have died and now He sees only Christ, Romans 7:1-4

<Or do you not know, brothers—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress. Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.
