    Bible. Our English term bible is from the Greek word biblion, which means “book” or “roll.”. The name comes from byblos, which denoted the papyrus plant that grew in marshes or river banks, primarily along the g material was made from the papyrus plant by cutting the pith of the plant in one foot strips and setting it in the sun to dry. The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as "containing all things necessary to salvation," and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith. The Creeds (specifically, the Apostles' and Nicene) as the sufficient statement of Christian faith; The dominical sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion; The historic episcopate locally.

    Biblical infallibility is the belief that what the Bible says regarding matters of faith and Christian practice is wholly useful and true. It is the "belief that the Bible is completely trustworthy as a guide to salvation and the life of faith and will not fail to accomplish its purpose.".   The Bible Is a Good Business Guide but are more commonly known today as best business practices. Jesus and Paul expand the principle in the Golden Rule – .

      The Goods of Reading: Theological Interpretation and Scriptural Reasoning. Rebekah Ann Eklund, Duke Divinity School. The practice of reading texts has been scrutinized, deconstructed, and reconstructed from a multitude of angles.

Biblical Theology is a response to cultural shifts that can be traced back to the Enlightenment of the 17th century.

The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church – (Articles of Religion) and “is to be received through the Holy Spirit as the true rule and guide for faith and practice” (Confession of Faith).

In recognizing the interrelationship and inseparability of the four basic resources for theological understanding, we are. By “rules” I refer to theological commitments, “Rule(s) of faith,” and confessional or creedal statements that are formed by attention to Scripture, but are then used to help guide the reading of Scripture.

Theology is not merely something we derive from Scripture but something we bring, and should bring, to it. Interpret the Scriptures knowing that the goal in interpretation is not to discover hidden secret truths, or to be unique in your interpretation.

God has given us His Word in order to reveal Himself. – It is not a book of dark mysteries, and riddles, it is a book of self disclosure.

– He is. The impact of this understanding of revelation on the practice of theology, in itself, is tremendous, and recovers something of the ancient understanding of St. Evagrius Ponticus—the theologian as being one who prays, and the one who prays as being a theologian.

Revelation According to Saint Bonaventure. Compare major beliefs of seven different Christian denominations: Anglican / Episcopal, Assembly of God, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic.

Find out where these faith groups intersect and where they diverge or decide which denomination lines up most closely with your own beliefs. The Bible is not an ordinary book. It is the only revelation of God's nature and will; it alone is "profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteous" (2 Timothy ).

It can make us wise unto salvation, and the word is able to save our souls (2 Timothy ; James ). In this article, Jason Jackson discusses the importance of reading God's word, and he offers.

Theology of America's Founding Fathers Excerpts from Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason. Philo of Alexandria Philo holds the keys to unlocking ancient Bible codes.

Philo's Rules for Enigmas Philo's rules for enigmas can be used to identify and interpret coded messages hidden within scripture. It works for both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Further, guidance is never normative; that is, what God guides one to do may not be what He will guide another to do. It is part of the personal ministry of the Holy Spirit to show the individual what the will of God is for him (Ro ); and being led by the Spirit is one of the marks of being a Christian (Ro ).

The bottom line, of course, is that we must continually go back to the Scriptures as our only source for "doing theology." As much as we may respect and admire the early church fathers, or, for that matter, the reformers, the puritans, or a particular modern spiritual leader, we must always remember to be Bereans, checking their conclusions and.

Chafer Theological Seminary Dr. Stephen R. Lewis Hermeneutics Instructor 10 LOCKHART'S AXIOMS OF HERMENEUTICS Rules of interpretations are based upon Corollaries formed from two (2) axioms. AXIOM 1 THE BIBLE IS A BOOK WRITTEN BY PEOPLE TO BE UNDERSTOOD BY PEOPLE.

COROLLARIES 1. Each Biblical writing was written by someone to specific hearers or. A Guide for the Study of Sacred Scripture. Mankind is always changing; God's truth stands forever. And he has many ways of speaking to us, regardless of the human instruments he uses. Often enough, our reading of Holy Scripture is distracted by mere curiosity; we want to seize upon a point and argue about it, when we ought to be quietly passing on.

The Bible is our rule book of faith and practice. If we know and understand the scriptures, we will be well on our way to having His guidance. He never guides His people contrary to the clear principles of His written Word. Second, guidance comes from a knowledge of God Himself.

We need to know what pleases Him and what displeases Him. Sola Scriptura is a watchword, a guide for action, for every true Lutheran, pastor or layman.

This was the position and practice of Luther and our Lutheran Confessions. "The Word of God is and should remain the sole rule and norm of all doctrine" (FC SD, Rule and Norm, 9). Holy Spirit, the unique witness to Jesus Christ and the authority for Christian faith and life?” “Do you believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God, totally trustworthy, fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, the supreme, final, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

The concept "people of God" is based primarily on biblical presuppositions and a patristic understanding of ecclesiology. The people of God is the pleroma of the church; quahal, the congregation of God's people.

The laos (people) is distinct from the ethne, or gentiles, who were engrafted into the body of Christ. The theological underpinning of the concept of the people of God in Orthodox.

Because God is no liar, his book, the Bible, does not lie. Inerrancy affirms that the perfect God, who inspired the Holy Scriptures, produced a book — the very words of which tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, in all that they teach.

Glorification. Are you like me. Does that hymn about stars in our crown give you the willies. Good!. The interaction of these sources and criteria in Wesley’s own theology furnishes a guide for our continuing theological task as United Methodists.

In that task Scripture, as the constitutive witness to the wellsprings of our faith, occupies a place of primary authority among these theological sources. ( Book of Discipline, p. 77).There are three theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity. 77 * Faith. Faith is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us, and that Holy Church proposes for our belief, because he is truth itself.

Wesley’s comments about the trustworthiness of the Bible focus on what calls the “rule of Christian faith and practice.” Wesley followed 2 Timothy –17, says Maddox, in which “inspiration of Scripture is related to its usefulness for instructing in Christian belief and training in .
