Welcome to Theologia!
Starting as a collection of papers by Mark Horne several years ago, Theologia has slowly expanded to include works by a variety of authors. You will find all of our content under the various categories to the left.
As our motto states, our goal is to provide thought-provoking material that is faithfully Biblical, distinctively Reformed, and comprehensively catholic.

Well, its been nearly two years since I put out the challenge to use “vindicate” wherever dikaioo is used but no-one has taken me up on it. So I think I can claim vindication for my stance – that might take some ‘reworking’ of “justification by faith” – the classic reformation mantra (but I am sure the reformers themselves would be glad for you to be wrestling with the text...

Hi a really great thoughts only wish I had read it years ago I am 61 now. wow what more I could have done for my family and God. Truth I knew just didn’t think. My problem now is rather I have gone beyond Gods ability to provide grace. you seem to address that with obey or perish cast us into the fire. I am not so sure that cant happen before we die. ie Romans 1 with the reprobate mind. Anyway thanks for the...

Since when is “Knowledge of the Truth” equal to salvation? The scripture speaks of the only (unforgivable) sin left on earth which is to reject Christ’s offer of salvation. This whole argument of whether there are still curses etc. ignores the reality of sanctification doesn’t it? When I entered into the new covenant I was NOT...

Thank you for sharing all of these thoughts. Very enlightening. I pray you will be blessed, greatly blessed. 🙂

You are saying that Lord Jesus is YHWH which is incorrect. Unless you are of the Oneness persuasion, personally there is but one God the Father anything else is philosophy so called. Peace.

Suzanne In answer to your post: “why would i feel the holy spirit convict me of sin and lead me to repent and also to be healed the way i was if i was unforgiven” [my dad even called me up when this first happened and told me that the spirit had come to him in great power and told him to let me know i was forgiven and saved by his grace-he did not know i was going through this at the time and felt an...

- January 28, 2015 at 3:55 am :: Future Justification to the Doers of the Law :: Theodore A. Jones
The scriptures that Paul wrote cannot be interpreted correctly if it assumed that the word law is always referencing the OT code. Rom. 2:13 is not referencing the Sinai code. The law in Romans 2:13 is the law that has been added after Jesus’ ascension. Heb. 7:12
- January 2, 2015 at 4:25 pm :: Why Does the Pastor Wear a Robe? :: Elder Owens F. Shepard
Having just read this interesting article and a number of the comments attached to it, I would just like to add that I see the robe much like a military uniform which by its style denotes a person’s position. The priests of old were at times directed to wear certain clothing during particular worship services and celebrations. I do believe that the robe(s) itself should not be so elaborate that...

- November 2, 2014 at 1:50 pm :: Getting the Galatian Heresy Right :: Theodore A. Jones
“For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will de declared righteous. ROM.2:13 Paul is not referencing OT law. First degree murder,which the crucifixion of Jesus was, cannot be a direct benefit. The Galatian error is alleging the cross to have been a direct benefit rather than the offense of murder.

On the other hand maybe we should use “vindicated” consistently wherever dikaioo is used in the NT – I.e. Shown publicly to be in the right. Certainly this was the case for Jesus in the resurrection and, when faith turns to sight, it will be so for us too – RESURRECTION is what I am hanging out for -what about you?

Suzane, in hopes that you will read this as I am feeling the same pain. Did you ever get to feeling the Lord again?

Secular mind.Secular of the mind and fear.Mankind and God and beyond.God’s happiness for mankind;Just what is happiness anyway?Understand this, of we human,(all) we have is our mind and heart.God has taken that and made a soul for himself,jesus and the holy spirit.The Holy Bible (KVJ.)Genesis 1: and there off.
