Distortions in Doctrine
Conference Distortions in DoctrineMarch 28 2020
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
How do the divinity and humanity of Christ relate to his work in saving us? How does “work out your own salvation” (Phil 2:12) relate to “by grace you have been saved … not as a result of works” (Eph 2.:8-9)? And how exactly does Jesus save — by example or by some supernatural intervention?
These are some questions that thinkers of the Church wrestled with since the time of the apostles. And as you might imagine, some of the answers they came up with were not so clear-cut, nor were all equally well grounded in God’s revelation. Indeed, some were “Distortions” from it.
This conference examines some of these Distortions in Doctrine — what they were, what questions they were trying to answer, and what we can still learn from them.
Come and learn from the perspectives of Historical Theology (Prof Tony Lane), and Pastoral Theology (Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon), with panel discussions.
