I imagine that I may have to ask forgiveness from some colleagues if I use the blog to ask questions, rather than to assert orthodox doctrines, but since in my opinion the role of a blogger is to invite discussion, I'll go ahead and ask away.
Recently I reviewed an old post in which I asked about what role the virgin birth plays in the life of believers. Not trying to revisit that old post, but as I read the comments, one respondent indicated that the virgin birth was one of the foundations of the faith, and if we start nibbling away at the foundations, soon the whole building can come tumbling down.
Foundation; fundamental -- same root, I think. (And the virgin birth is, incidentally, one of the five fundamentals of classis American fundamentalism.)
Which brings to mind a question:
If you had to identify five "FOUNDATIONS" or "FUNDAMENTALS" of the Christian faith, what would they be?
