Why Christians Need Knowledgeable Conviction

_DSF4175_630x420The history of Christianity is a long, winding river. At the source of the river stands Jesus Christ, along with the witness of the apostles through their preaching and writing ministries. As the river flows from the first century through the present day, it splits into the tributaries of diverse theological traditions. All of these tributaries trace their origin to the Source of the river while maintaining distinct beliefs and practices that distinguish them from the other tributaries. No matter what tributary you find yourself in, two things are essential: knowing what you believe and knowing the beliefs of other Christians. You need a knowledgable conviction.

This kind of conviction doesn’t flippantly change views on a whim, neither does it remain unconcerned with what others believe. Rather, Christians with a knowledgeable conviction want to know what is going on within the wider Christian world while maintaining their own beliefs and vision for what the Christian life is and should be.

We’ve carefully designed base packages to help you understand the thought of Christians from diverse theological points of view. Not only can you access great books and resources from your own theological heritage, you can study the convictions of others, giving you a better sense of the many theological viewpoints expressed in 2,000 years of the Christian faith.

    I am of the opinion, there are two (2) separate and distinct rivers. There is no mingle, one with the other. First, is the River of Life. It flows out of the belly of my Lord, Christ Jesus and goes into eternity. It has neither tributary nor diverse tradition. ” And it shall come to pass, (that) every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the river(s) shall come, shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.” . ” And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.” The other, I call the River of the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Its headwater is of Lucifer, “the morning star”, now dark, ‘King of Babylon’. The Prince of this earth, Today. The waters are clogged with death, destruction and abomination of heart; and has diverse tributary and tradition as the imagination of men.
