Re: Morality

Rarely is there black or white but a whole lot of grey. I don’t think that supports subjective morality but rather actually supports objectivity. As the same narrative surrounds basic principles. Thou shall not kill... but where does self defence come into play? Does revenge or retribution shift to...

Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

I am not qualified to comment but lean towards LDS position on this specific question. So you disagree with what Paul wrote and that the Gospel of John says? No. But what Paul and John wrote is NOT what the LDS believe or preach. They preach the trinity is three separate parts. Father, son, and Hol...

Re: What's the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?

Definitely intellect! I’ve considered a sex change or full blown lesbianism to meet my perfect match, especially since reading Ricks’ response :mrgreen: .... my point clearly illustrated! But instead of pooling smarts into one demographic, it would much better for the gene pool to breed out the stu...

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

So can we assume that randomly using stats to presume a stance without taking into consideration all the factors probably isn’t the best angle??
Totally agree :ebiggrin: :eugeek:

Re: Hells Dominion by B.W. Melvin

Which is why Paul regardless of upbringing, culture or background God sees through to the very heart of the matter. Goodness and love has a narrative of its own. It’s not dependent on religiousness, I think the bible illustrates quite effectively the stark contrast between religion and a heart of lo...

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

Statistically the most dangerous person to a child in regards to sexual violence, domestic violence and abuse is a male step parent. The stats are off the richter in regards to the biggest abusers of children; It’s male, heterosexual step fathers. The statistics are echoed across the board, regardle...

Re: Hells Dominion by B.W. Melvin

There are many experiences, in fact thousands of NDE’s each with unique experiences. There is astoundingly central themes but every experience is different. By and large after studying NDE’s for several years the most universal aspect is the overwhelming love and forgiveness our Father feels towards...

Re: Minister denies wedding

What's ironic is a marriage is a state sanctioned licence, registered by the attorney general under births, deaths and marriages. A state endorsed and sanctioned union. It's can be by choice performed by a religious minister but falls under the legislative guidelines of the state. The irony is in r...

Re: Minister denies wedding

I agree with RickD, no one has the right to force anyone to render their services. Such is anti-libertarian in the worst slavish way. Stupid people will just lose business when people "shop" elsewhere. I don't watch the news in our country anymore, but I know their has been a bit of faker...
