Cornfield Theology
The Parameters of Confessionalism (Part 2 of 4)

Cornfield Theology

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 30, 2021 6:42


I’ve been posting on why Redemption Hill Church is confessional. The term confessional has lost its luster over the last 100 years, but prior, most churches held to a Confession of Faith. In this series of blog posts, I want to show the value of confessions and why a local church should be confessional. The series on confessionalism is about 1) The Nature of Confessionalism, 2) The Parameters of Confessionalism, 3) A Vision of Confessionalism 4) the Subscription to a Confession. If you are new to confessionalism, or the term is foreign, that’s ok. The purpose of cornfieldtheology.com is to introduce people to new concepts, terms, and theological ideas. These four blog posts on confessionalism have been adapted from a paper I submitted to the elders of Trinity Fellowship Churches in preparation for Theology Day before our General Assembly in November of 2021. In this second of four posts, I discuss the parameters of a Confession of Faith. I’ll state the purpose of this post with a question: how much theology should, or should not be, in a Confession of Faith? Somewhere In The Middle A Confession of Faith is not a systematic theology book. A systematic theology book has its place, but it is not a functional expression of faith for a local church. In 2020 I took several members of the church through a systematic theology book. The class enriched the students. It provoked good questions. But there was a sense that the breadth of a systematic theology book can be overwhelming. A person could study systematic theology for a lifetime and die realizing they have only scratched the surface. And there is the other end of the spectrum. A Confession of Faith cannot be summed up in a few statements on a church website. Try this for an exercise. Contact your local pastor and ask how he decided what ten theological points to put on the website? Did he copy and paste from another website? Is the statement of faith so vague that a Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist all agree? Far too many local churches, networks, and denominations refuse to be held accountable with “all that theology.” To take the words of Alexander Hamilton out of context, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” So, if a Confession of Faith is not taking a seminary class on systematic theology, and it’s not your garden variety 10 points found at a local church website, then what is the right balance for a Confession of Faith? A Confession of Faith aims for the middle. It is deep in its theology and wide in the various doctrines. A Confession of Faith cannot address everything, but it addresses much. A confession must have primary doctrine and secondary doctrines. Tertiary doctrines should be held with an open hand and often not included in a Confession of Faith. Primary doctrines include doctrines central to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For example, the incarnation, atonement, and justification must be affirmed, taught, and defended at all costs. Secondary doctrines are also essential and help to distinguish a church or denomination from other churches and denominations. Secondary doctrines might include baptism, the Lord’s Table, and the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit. Tertiary doctrines are not a point of division and distinction but are no less worthy of time, study, reflection, and conviction. A tertiary doctrine might include the specifics of eschatology. There is no need to break fellowship with a brother or sister in Christ who holds to historic premillennialism when I hold to reformed amillennialism. The challenge lies in determining what is primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary doctrines are more obvious, but secondary and tertiary doctrines might be malleable d

For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater works than these will he show him, so that you may marvel. 21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will. 22 For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

Jay Stringer is a therapist, author, and public speaker. He guides men and women to overcome unwanted sexual behaviors, and to discover how their story is shaping unwanted sexual behavior or betrayal trauma. He grew up as the son of a Protestant minister in the Presbyterian church, holds a master of Divinity and masters of Counseling Psychology, and is an ordained minister. Steven Shields, ACMHC CET1, is a therapist who acts as a guide to help others heal from trauma and addiction. As founder of Unashamed Unafraid, a non-profit organization, he hosts the podcast that shares hope for sexual addiction recovery. Unashamed funds scholarships for people to go to retreats and receive therapy. Steve works in his private practice in Salt Lake City, at OnSite in Nashville Tennessee, and at the Oaks in San Diego California doing trauma intensives and workshops. His favorite event to speak at is the WarriorHeart Bootcamp every year. Steve is unofficially the biggest Leading Saints and “KF” fan! In this podcast episode, Kurt and co-host Steve speak with Jay about how leaders can best provide help and guidance to those who have been affected by unwanted sexual behaviors. Jay Stringer Steve Shields Highlights 6:15 How can leaders help members with sexual brokenness? Leaders should stop trying to ‘manage' the problem but try to help the member find the core problem. 8:10 Unwanted sexual behavior is a roadmap to healing, not a life sentence to sexual shame or sexual addition. 9:30 Leaders need to listen to the stories and experiences that are behind the unwanted behavior. 13:30 Invite people to take authorship and authority over their unwanted behaviors. It's so much more than ripping out their behavior from their life. Behaviors and addictions come from somewhere much deeper. 17:00 Many people turn to unhealthy sexual behavior or porn because they lack purpose. 17:45 How can a leader create space to listen? Stories are what change the human heart. Stop the practical suggestions because they are not going to work. 20:10 Jay gives a list of questions that can help leaders in interviews. These questions will lead to stories and help the member connect the dots between the current unwanted sexual behavior and the past pain or underlying story. 22:30 You don't have to be a therapist but a safe place for people to share their stories. People don't always need suggestions but someone that has compassion for them. 30:00 How do you help members come to you to confess and talk about the problems they are having? 34:15 Shame convinces people to stay silent about their sexual brokenness. Leaders need to normalize talking about sex and porn. 40:45 Share your scars, not your wounds, when you are in leadership. Be vulnerable to share your scars and experiences too. God wants us to share our stories. 42:30 This is not just a men's issue but a human issue. Many women are also viewing pornography and having affairs. 47:30 While connection and community are very important to recovery and healing it's also very important to take time alone. You have to learn to sit with yourself and not just try to distract yourself all the time. 53:00 How can we find the right community?

Deuteronomy 8:1-6 Horatio Spafford was a Presbyterian layman from Chicago and was a successful lawyer and businessman. Humanly speaking, this man had everything going for him.  He loved the Lord and was happily married with five beautiful children.  However, things were about to take a drastic and sudden turn, in a series of events reminiscent of the life of Job.  Spafford had heavily invested in real estate along Lake Michigan's shoreline but in the great Chicago Fire of 1871, he tragically lost everything!  If that wasn't bad enough, shortly before this, he lost his only son to scarlet fever at the tender age of four.  With a grieving wife, Horatio Spafford decided to send her and their four daughters across to England where he planned imminently to join them.  In 1873, his family boarded the S.S Ville du Havre and set sail for England; but as the ship crossed the Atlantic Ocean, tragedy struck when the ship collided with another sea vessel.  Within just 12 minutes the ship had sunk taking the lives of 226 of her passengers. When survivors finally reached dry land, Horatio Spafford received a telegram from Cardiff, Wales.  It was from his precious wife Anna; the first two words read; “Saved alone...”.  As Horatio journeyed to meet his grieving wife, the captain, aware of the tragedy, invited Spafford to join him in the cockpit, pointing out to him the location where he believed the ship had sunk.  With this, Horatio rushed off to his room where he penned the words to a poem by the name of “Ville du Havre”.  We know the name of that poem today as the hymn, “It Is Well With My Soul”.  So many I find are content to serve the Lord and to speak well in good times when the wind is blowing in a favourable direction.  But woe if that wind should suddenly change course; as changes the wind so changes their speech.  It is here perhaps most of us all, where the Lord wants to try the substance and quality of our hearts.  Will we still be a people of one voice speaking the same things out of season as in season?  Can we say in the midst of trial, it is well with my soul?

Sermon Recording Sermon OutlineSpeaker: Rev. Scott StrickmanSermon Series: Spiritual Vitality1 Peter 2:1-12 (ESV)1 So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in Scripture:“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”7 So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe,“The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” 8 and“A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.”They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.11 Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. 12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.Sermon OutlineTo thrive spiritually you need to be aware of three realities:1. There is a war against your soul (v11)v11 “I urge you”v11 “abstain from the passions of the flesh” (v1 malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, slander)2. You have received mercy (v10)v4 “… come to him… rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious”v7 “the honor is for you who believe”v11 “beloved” “as sojourners and exiles”3. You must keep your conduct honorable (v12)v9 “you are…”v11 “abstain from”, v12 “keep…”Prayer of ConfessionAlmighty and most merciful Father, we know you are good. We have sought to taste good apart from you and have instead discovered bitterness. We are undermined by our own envy and hypocrisy, and we suffer under the weight of our own sin. We have not conducted ourselves with honor. Instead we have given in to the passions that wage war against our souls. Forgive us for our offense to you. Forgive us for how we have offended others. Forgive us for our lack of integrity and help us as we deal with the consequences. We look to Jesus, precious in your sight and ours, and by faith look for the grace you extend to us in him. Cover us and fill us so that we may walk with honor as we sojourn on this earth. Amen.Questions for ReflectionIn what ways do you experience “war” within you? What tensions exist? What are the various forces at work in your heart and mind?How do you experience resistance to doing good? In your effort to be a good person, what do you see? What discourages you? What holds you back?Why is it so hard to be truly good?When do you find it hardest to act honorably? What contexts are most challenging to you?How does God's mercy help with the process of change and growth? What keeps you from being confident that you are beloved by God? What makes you think that isn't true?How does union with Christ form a whole new possibility?When temptation comes, what can you do to reduce the power it has over you? How can you keep a sufficient distance so that you are not overpowered by it? What should you do when it feels inevitable you will give in? What should you do after you have given in? How can a Christian identity, received by God, give you confidence to keep your conduct honorable? How is this different from pride? How can you tell if you are strong in faith or proud?
