BIBLIOLOGY (BIBLE)

Vaticanus

The Greek uncial code that contains most of the text of the Bible. The 4th century A.D. manuscript is housed at the Vatican Museum.


Virgin Mary

Blessed among all women, she is the human mother of Jesus Christ, who was conceived divinely by the LORD God within her untouched womb.

Word of God

The inerrant and infallible Word of God is Jesus Christ expressed. The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.


Yahwist

The writer of the earliest major source of the Hexateuch, in which the LORD God is characteristically referred to as YAHWEH rather than Elohim.

BIOLOGY (LIVING THINGS)

Creation

The making of all things by the LORD God, Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirits. (See Theistic Evolution)

Evolution

See Theistic Evolutionism.

Quicken

Manifestation of life

Theistic Evolutionism

Belief that God used evolution as one pattern for His Creation. There is a fixed point in time when the Creation was "very good" and perfect in God's eyes and was finished. Any changes that occur after the fallen condition are a result of devolution that has had to deteriorate progressively from the first perfect creation for adaptation to the fallen world. Every mutation makes a gene-based sequence progressively deteriorate, making the life worse off than the perfect Creation once was, and cannot be restored to perfectness once again without the touch of God. (See The Creation of Light, Heavens and Earth, Seas, Sun, Moon and Stars and The Evolution, Making and Creation of Man)

CHRISTOLOGY (CHRIST)

Adoptionism

The view that Jesus became the Christ or was appointed to that position sometime during his earthly ministry (at his baptism or after his resurrection). This false view suggests that Jesus Christ earned the title of Christ through sinless devotion to the will of the LORD God. This view was taken by early Christians to reconcile claims that Jesus was the son of God with the radical monotheism of Judaism.


Anomoeans

Belief that the Son of God is unlike the Father.

Also see Homoousians, Homoiousians, and Homoeans.
