- Is there anyone in here who is formally trained in Christian Theology? I am not inquiring about those who are self-taught, rather those who are actually licensed in Christian Theology.

Yes, I am an ordained minister and have been for past 32 years. Do you have any similar credentials to represent Islam? If so, no wonder your religion is in deep doo doo. You're totally unqualified to enter any religious debate because you don't have your own personal point of view. You're not allowed to as a Muhammadan believer thus you can only parrot an ancient dead man's ideas who isn't you or me and anyone today. Everyone has an opinion you know, one person's opinion isn't greater than another's just because some else says so. Opinions and religious beliefs are like our anuses, everyone's got one. You want to make everyone believe one person's opinions are greater worth than everyone else's yet you offer no proof of this? I mean why would anyone in their right mind think God would favor berserk animal men seriously demented and out of control as representatives of..what? The worst in human beings? Yassine, drop the brainwashing that disallows your ability to think for yourself and find a real religion of God instead of the violent cartoon imitation you follow.

The irony is that if they are then it isn't truly Christian theology, since the Establishment doesn't teach the real thing, only the Apostate version.

That explains why you are so far away from what Christ and the Apostles taught then.

That's the pot calling the kettle black. If he responds, we'll see a battle over who is more apostate. Technically, of course, most BotchTower followers are not apostate since they were never adherents of the truth anyhow. They didn't have anything from which to apostatize.

You would need to find some one whom attended seminary and is probably a practicing minister or priest or pastor etc.

Or a monk. A monk would be pretty cool.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

Depends on the order and practice. Zen monks, probably not. Friar Tuck? No problem.

Yup, he is pretty much the pre-eminent Catholic Theologian of the day. His Papal Encyclicals are at the top of the page:

If you want recent books that he wrote as a theologian (and not official teachings as pope):

These are just the ones he wrote while Pope... Yeah, he was prolific.
