New Christian Thought


To understand New Christian thought, which is pretty broad, one useful approach is to see its truths as being grouped into 5 main doctrines: The LORD, The Word, regeneration, heaven, and conjugial love or ideal marriage. Find out how this all works, and explore some "tool" doctrines, too.

Is there a God? If not, what would that mean for us? If so, what does THAT mean for us? Doctrine (structured thinking) about the Lord is one of the main things we need to have, if we're to understand how to live our lives. Let's take a look at this fundamental subject.

We have this book - the Bible - this collection of stories which range from 1900 to 4,000 years old. Some early ones from Genesis come from an even older oral tradition. This book has been profoundly influential for Judaism and Christianity, obviously, and for Islam, too -- and those religions form the bedrock of the cultures of Europe, much of Asia, and all of the Americas. Is it really the Word of God? Does it contain God's messages to humankind? We think so - otherwise why make a Bible Study site - but, let's explore why.

We're born with lots of built-in traits and tendencies. All human beings have some tendencies towards evil -- some selfish loves. They show up pretty early on. Think "the terrible twos". They stay with us, tenaciously. There's part of our minds, too, that can rise above that selfishness, and ask the Lord for the strength to fight those evil loves. When we do that, we start on the road to Regeneration, or Rebirth.

Conjugial Love is a fundamental New Christian concept. It describes the ideal state that God hopes to bring to us, in which a man and woman join together in marriage, with a union of hearts and minds, as well as bodies.
