Scott 1, there is many reasons why not everyone is not on the same accord. Some are just starting. The Spirit reveals to each believer the Truth, not at the same time. Much of it also depends on what kind of passion we have for God not a denomination. Because some read to support their denomination. Many others use passages that seem to imply something. I believe if a person is truly saved, his first study should be on God, His Omniscience, His Omnipotence, His Omnipresence, His attributes, and His nature. For no passage we read which seems to imply something against all those, is not correct interpretation. It can never change God's Attributes, Character and nature. If it does, the passage is interpreted wrong. For God never changes.

What non-Christians want to ask can be misleading. What matters is what God is concerned about.

We do need to be concerned about ourselves . . . so we become strong in Jesus and His love so we are healthy (1 Peter 5:3) to take good care of new Christians.

Your theology needs to be in the right spirit so you aren't getting into confusion and division and arguing (Philippians 2:14-16). There are people who are pre-trib because they are not secure that God is easily able to get us through any trouble (Psalms 91:7-13). So, a belief needs to be in the right spirit and way of seeing things with "faith working through love" (Galatians 5:6). So, the spirit of what you do and believe is important (1 Peter 3:4, Colossians 3:15).

Scott, I believe francis answer is correct, you said " non-Christians" Why would you ask that of genuine Christians? Non-Christians don't care about what Bible we use or even hear pastor's sermons.
Now, if you are talking about what Christians learn, some learn all four, some three, some two and some none.
I believe Jed answer is not totally correct, because many here are Christians. They don't come here to argue. They want to present the Truth they have learned. And share it with others. If it is not Truth, then it won't matter. Only the Truth has power. Athiest comes on line to entertain himself with what we answer. So do many heretics. But they have no Truth, we should not worry if we are prepared.

KarenD, good answer. Exactly how I feel. Original poster, do realize that this is a blog site, so naturally, people come here to argue over small things. That's kinda what this site is for. Some people on here often ask why do we argue over things. Well, then why would anyone come here? It's not that we believe these things have anything to do with salvation, although I think some here think it does. It's just that's why we come here, to argue our point.

Scott....I have never asked nor been asked #1 or #3. The Bible version question is asked a lot, but is silly since only the original manuscripts were the God-inspired ones. King James is not a Biblical figure. #4 Will certainly be answered in time, so we don't need to debate it. We just need to be watching and waiting for the Lord.

We are supposed to be the voice of God to an unreached world but we get stuck in our own self-indulgences.
---Scott1 on 6/6/12
YES I agree with you. issues like what bible version is not building the kingdm of christ.
Some of the stuff that christians argue about is pointless and useless, even silly at time

I agree with you scott
---francis on 6/6/12


my point is that many people leave a church, cause a church split over stuff that should not be that important. We argue about this stuff and in the end it does not bring anybody else into the fold and it creates a terrible false image of the church being completely unrelevant. We are supposed to be the voice of God to an unreached world but we get stuck in our own self-indulgences.

why would a non christian ask these questions:

1)Are you reformed in your theology?
2)What version of the Bible do you use?
3)Does your pastor teach exegetically?
4)Are you pre trib, mid trib, post trib or partial trib?

I knew a few men who were attending the Bible college here. They liked to show off their knowledge and get into discussions with others on these topics. I did not consider them friends.

The believers I worship, and study, with are involved in deep Bible study, and applying the Scripture to our daily lives. We are about showing Christ's love through helping one another with meals when people are sick, and providing a food bank for those in need.

One group of women regularly visited a women in prison for killing her homeless mother. The prisoner accepted Christ as her Saviour, prior to receiving a life sentence. These women now travel over 2 hours one way to visit her at the State Prison.

I have never been asked any of these questions nor do I ask any of them to others.

The questions I ask other believers are:

1. When did you last talk with Jesus?
2. How much time do you spend in prayer?
3. How much time do you spend studying the Bible?
4. How are you helping others?
5. Name one way you witness to non-believers?
