Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

B.W, ACB, Let's focus on what the text says regarding "in the days of Noah": Matthew 24:37-39: 37 For [y]the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day ...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

I'm not dogmatic on my opinion of this, but I do lean more to the angels coming down having sex with women creating offspring. I think there was genetic manipulation happening but in a more direct way for the angels pre-flood (and a little after until the conquest to destroy the nephalim by the old ...

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

Talk about confusing responses from you. I should just let old threads remain dead ;) We weren’t discussing God, we were discussing faith. I said faith was unseen; not God. What are you talking about? This is almost word salad to me. Earlier you said "If it is not seen, how can you call that em...

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

I don’t consider gravity, wisdom, or love to be unseen. Gravity can be scientifically measured, and analyzed, and though love and wisdom are subjective labels people attach to behaviors, (what I call wise, you may call common sense, or what I call love, you may call it something else; and visa vers...

Re: LGBTQ

So Mallz, what is it about having your views challenged that infuriates you so? Would you be happier if I was gone and people mostly sat around agreeing about everything? Would that make for a richer, more stimulating** experience for you? Oh, just verifying you're not part of the definition of 'wh...

Re: LGBTQ

Supposedly if one is born with the proclivity to have sex with animals, God intended that too and lets not forget those born with an addictive personalities. If it has a genetic component then yes, the creator of Life, the Universe, and Everything put it in the code. And yes, if he's perfect and al...

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

But once empirical evidence is presented, is it really faith at that point? I like this question, it gets at what faith is. Yes, it would be faith after having empirical evidence. Faith, at least defined by the bible, is: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things ...

Welcome back Kenny!

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Like the materialistic pop-metaphysic problem "where did all the material come from?" Of which the theistic counterpart is "where did God come from?". And please, please, please, do not answer that with "God is eternal." For that is just as 'unexplainable'. From my per...

Judgement after death

I'm having a hard time reconciling the finality of a souls' state after death. Does this mean a soul will not 'evolve', for lack of a better word, once it has been molded through this life (with or without Him)? As a side note, it would harmonize with why angels fall for eternity. Makes me think of ...

Re: The possibility of evil is good? Love of good vs Hate of evil

This sort of brings in the question why did God not spare the angels, but had mercy on humans. Any ideas? So far I see a few: Bc we were made in His image, we were tempted, we were on earth and not heaven, or that we were more ignorant than the angels, which ties with us being on earth and not heav...

Re: Why are people so blind?

It's important to remember that, in the time of the Bible, there was no such thing as heterosexuality or homosexuality as we understand those terms today. People just didn't define themselves in that way. I don't think the Bible says that homosexuality is wrong. There are certainly some homosexual ...

Re: The possibility of evil is good? Love of good vs Hate of evil

I can't help but suspect you misunderstood my point, though to be fair my framing it as "possibility of evil is good" doesn't help matters. That said, I didn't say there is good in evil; rather, my point was that if we assume God is omnibenevolent, and he made a choice that creates the po...
