Re: Can Atheism Stand On Its Own Two Feet?

And yet atheists continue to engage with Christians in places such as this. God bless them.

Re: Miracles are impossible?

Some view that the "emptying" of Christ when He became human meant that He "forgot" that i t was through Him that ALL was created. Some say that it was only at His baptism that the full knowledge of Who and What He was was revealed to Him by His Father. Can you provide the bibli...

Re: Animals have consciousness too

Car, I don't really know what you mean by "consciousness" and how it applies to animals. However, rather than throw out God, perhaps you could clarify for yourself what this concept means to you and how it defines your relationship with your Creator. For myself, If it was discovered at som...

Re: Miracles are impossible?

http://creation.com/jesus-age-earth I had just been reading this article on creation.com when I clicked over here and saw the above post. Is it reasonable to say that Jesus, in human incarnation, performed miracles showing power over life and death (Creation) and yet denied himself the ability to &q...

Re: Why Four Gospels?

I'm not familiar with Pink's book either but I am familiar with the common notion that each Gospel presents Jesus in a particular light: -Matthew presents Christ as King, son of David and rightful heir. -Mark presents Christ as Suffering Servant. -Luke présents Jesus as the Perfect Man, the second ...

Re: Can the future be changed, Scrooge asked?

Oh dear my poor brain hurts as much as when I tried to figure out if the Enterprise really could change the future by going back in time (I think there was a whale and teh Golden Gate Bridge involved somewhere too). I am also reminded of Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5 and the Tralfamadorian who experie...

Re: Calvinism and Free Will

Hi Ric, I am sure God is providing a lesson or showing me a path when I come up against these big questions. For this one I think it is that I needed to do a bit more independent research because I am obviously not the first to think about this! :oops: And don't get freaked out when I come across ma...

Re: A question from Genesis

That joke is so old the Hebrews probably had it about Babylonians :) But anyway, I think I get it now, the passage is to demonstrate that humans are above animals and that the union between man and woman is to be strong as we are literally of the same flesh. But could Moses have been just a bit mor...

Re: Can Atheism Stand On Its Own Two Feet?

Hello Thadeyus, I see myself in you 8 months in the past. I was an atheist/agnostic (call it a swinging vote) I had the same questions and objection as you. The main one was that I just couldn't get past the idea of a "good" God causing so much pain in this world. Then a Christian friend i...

Re: Calvinism and Free Will

WOW! I see this is one of the big ones. You might want to have a sticky or a thread devoted to it that is more obvious.

I didn't intend to open a can of worms so I am just going to gently replace the lid and back away softly.

Love

Calvinism and Free Will

I am trying to understand something because it really provoked a disquiet in my heart. I read that Calvinist doctrine is that God alone decides who is saved and who is not, that salvation is predetermined and there is nothing any of us can do to change what God has set in train. I just find that ide...
