Welcome to "What We Believe about the Bible: Ten Topics of Systematic Theology"

 

It is currently popular for churches to make their statement of faith as vague a possible. While that is understandable in promoting inclusiveness, it seems disingenuous to conceal a product before selling it. A genuine church offers one product, Jesus Christ, as portrayed by the Bible. It is a belief system involving the four branches of philosophy: Epistemology, Metaphysics, Ethics, and Categorical Philosophy. More specifically, it concerns the ten doctrines of the Systematic Theology: Bibliology, Theology Proper, Christology, Pneumatology, Angelology, Anthropology, Hamartiology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, and Eschatology. This series examines systematic theology in a nutshell (concerning “what we believe” in the state of faith); plus, we will study select areas of apologetics (about “why we believe so”).

Sermon 1.1 ◦ What Do We Believe about the Bible? Part 1: Introduction ◦ Preached 04/28/2019

 

Postmodernism is born from the complaint that medieval dogma and modern machines robbed full humanity. While the diagnosis is agreeable, the prescription involves shameless inconsistency. Man-made dogmas (e.g. climate change) are followed religiously; man-made machines (e.g. smart phones) have become indispensable. Full humanity cannot live without mind and doctrines; the difference is in the source. The Bible is where men get doctrines about God. This is why Bibliology should be the first of the ten doctrines of systematic theology. The essence of Bibliology follows: (1) the Bible is divinely sourced; (2) it is inerrant and infallible; and (3) it centers on Jesus Christ.

Sermon 1.2 ◦ What Do We Believe about the Bible? Part 2: How Was the Old Testament Formed? ◦ Preached 05/06/2019

 

Modern mainstream academia is committed to naturalism and makes imaginary theories on the formation of the Old Testament, generally making it late and collective in authorship, focusing on the two foundations of OT and NT (Torah and Gospels), and the two major bridges between them (Isiah and Daniel). Its goal seems to be reducing the authority and authenticity of the Bible. The real history of writing in the world is actually dependent on significant individuals rather than the mass. By believing in the reality of biblical history and understanding the many roles of biblical “authors,” we can offer a reasonable “Believers’ Theory on OT Formation.”
