I've been a Christian since 1985, and a member of East Heights United Methodist Church in Wichita since 1994, though I no longer live in Wichita. My theology is Wesleyan/Arminian, but I don't think all Christians must share this view.

I believe that the Bible is inspired but not inerrant, that it was written to teach us about God and not the physical universe.

I believe faith is not an intellectual pursuit but a transformation of our entire being.

comment What is the difference between a professing and a non-professing Christian with regards to their faith, beliefs, etc?
And beyond that, I still don't have an idea of what the phrase means in the context of this question.

@Pacerier Maybe the problem is that I searched without the quotation marks. But still, 5000 results is pretty small for Google. Compare this with "non-profit Christian" or "non-denominational Christian", both of which (with quotes) have over 300,000 results.

@Pacerier I've still not heard the term outside of this question. And when I googled it, this question was not just the first result, but the only result on the first page that used the entire phrase "non-professing Christian." What does it mean?

comment When was the first recorded account of pre-tribulation teaching?
Please note that the premillennialism of some early church fathers is very different from the modern dispensationalist view. The ancient Christians had no concept of a rapture, whether pre- or post-trib.

comment Did early church fathers understand the doctrine of trinity?
Noetus was indeed excommunicated from the Orthodox church "for declaring God and Jesus as one and the same." His view, however, was not trinitarianism but Sabellianism. When he arrived in Rome, the Roman trinitarians opposed him.

Why do you assume the year 33?
