Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

Ken,m if you don't have any choice in what you believe , how can your view be considered reasonable and rational? Belief happens after reason and logic demands it. I mean, you are't rationalizing things and then choosing to believe the evidence and facts, at least not according to what you are sayi...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

I don’t think you could choose what to believe any more than you could choose to believe something is beautiful or not, or that something taste good or not. If you choose what you believe, could you choose to believe you can fly like a bird? Can you choose to believe something is true even though y...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

I wouldn't say people choose what they accept to be true, to reject something that makes sense to you because it goes against what you want to be true is a form of lying. It would be honest to change your agenda rather than to reject what make sense to you. Are you saying that people don't choose t...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

Some people, typically skeptics, are intimated by the word "belief", because they think it means something irrational. The moment we accept anything, fact or otherwise, we are making a statement of belief. To accept the 1st law of thermodynamics is to believe the evidence presented to you...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

Okay here is how I see it. Theists believe in God, Atheist do not believe in God, and Agnostics claim it is impossible to know if God exists or not IOW; I see Theism and Atheism about what one believes , and Agnosticism about what you KNOW; a completely different subject. If I were an Agnostic and ...
