My Definition of Christian Theism

Question: Dewalt, could you give me your own definition of Christian Theism?

Answer: I’ll try, even though it may be different then that of some, but my Precise Definition of Christian Theism would be this… Christian Theism is the belief of one God, who is the creator of all things, who has existed always before time, who has all things to do with all things that pass throughout all of time, who should receive all glory due him, which intercedes constantly with his creation.

Question: Dewalt, can you give me Scripture References to defend your definition?

Answer: Yes!
One God – John 14:1 & 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Creator- Gen. 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Existence – Heb. 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

Over all things Rev. 4:11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they existed and were created.”

Receiving Glory – Rev. 5:9-10 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”

Intercedes with his creation – Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

    My definition of Christian Theist is someone who believes in the Christian God, but does not follow christianity, and can believe other things also. Hence if i were just to follow chirstianity i would call myself a christian rather than a christian Theist.
    Im a christian Theist. i believe in Jesus, Reincarnation, The triple Goddesses that God has placed within us to guide us, Gaia who is Goddess of nature and land, God sent her to care for the land and the plants to blossom.
    God himself was just a creater. i give thanks to Goddess Giai and God(Christian God)
    Blessed be, and Amen.

    Vinnie nowhere in scripture can you find a triple goddess. If you truly believe in the story of Christ as presented in the gospels you would let go of such a doctrine. You are correct to say you can believe in anything. A lady I work with adamantly believes man has not stepped on the moon and if man were to leave the atmosphere of earth they would perish almost immediately. I disagree with her. I believe evidence supports my claim as I also believe the story presented in scripture. One cannot believe in a triple goddess and in Christ also. God speaks nothing of a Gaia except maybe where He tells the Jews to forsake the foreign gods and to return to Him.
