The 2010 Theological Forum  will be meeting April 21-23, 2010 at Valley Baptist Church in Cherry Grove, Oregon.  The Forum is a ministry of Dispensational Theological Seminary and Valley Baptist Church of Gaston, Oregon.


I well remember the beginnings of the Theological Forum many years ago.  We met that first time in Southern Oregon.  I presented a short paper on the NIV translation of the Psalms involving its philosophy of translation and poor representation of the text.  At that time we had no idea that the Forum would continue for more than 25 years.  I have done 27 papers and three seminars as parts of the Forum with hundreds of pages of paper.  It has been superb source of valuable biblical and theological study and fellowship.  Many of the papers are excellent resources for further study of God's Word.  It continues to be our desire that the Forum bring glory to the Godhead as we focus our attention on our Lord Jesus Christ.  This event provides an opportunity for growing believers to be edified. The Forum is designed to provide substantial teaching of the Word of God that will assist pastors and people in relation to their ongoing growth in the Word of God.  The sessions will provide excellent resources for Bible study, preaching and teaching.  Often Forum presentations answer longstanding questions related to the Word of God and theological subjects.  They will provide extensive information that will be of value to any believer with an appetite for understanding God’s Word.  Sessions are open to pastors and other interested and growing Christians.


The morning sessions begin at 9:30 a.m. and run through 12:30 p.m.  The afternoon sessions begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 5:30 p.m.  There will be no evening sessions.  The evenings will be open for fellowship times.  The home of Professor David Spurbeck will be open for informal fellowship and sharing each evening.  Evening meals will be provided in Forest Grove.  We trust that many will take advantage of this opportunity.  These are valuable opportunities for fellowship and for sharing questions about the Word of God.


Printed papers are written and an oral presentation is given on the paper.  We do make an effort to spend time answering questions that arise from each presentation.  In 2006 we added another feature to the Forum.  Over the years several have suggested that some advanced study material be presented.  This year I will be presenting a seminar on the grace believer's communication with God.  The progression of the seminar subjects are noted in the program. Last year several asked for seminar material related to "prayer" or grace communication with God.  Grace communication is one of the more important subjects produced by literal interpretation and the resulting Dispensationalism.  Prayer changes.


The goal of the Forum is to examine the Word of God and to encourage saints to submit to the authority of the Scriptures and especially grace revelation (c. Jn. 13-Rev. 3) which will bring glory to our great God.  Much of the Forum material contributes to the maturing of the spiritual believer.


The purpose of the Forum is to encourage pastors and other believers to be involved in deeper study of the Scriptures than is necessary for the normal preaching and teaching ministry.  The Forum also provides an opportunity for the discussion of problems and questions that arise from the ministry of the Word of God.  In the past there has been limited time for one to one sharing.  The open evenings will make this possible in an informal fellowship setting.
