Re: God and the East

Not just the Far East but the far north was a hard region to spread the gospel. Far north being the Baltic states of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. The resistance to missionary attempts kept Christianity at bay until about 1200 A.D. when the Northern Crusades were undertaken to force conversion upon...

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

Have a blood transfusion with a chimp if you believe we are 99% the same as chimps. I'll let someone else be the pioneer on that little experiment. :ebiggrin: What is interesting is the compatibility of some pig parts like cardiovascular stuff, with humans. I haven't read any recent developments bu...

Join any medium to large city police department. You'll get to meet lots of people like him. Very interesting stories you'll hear.

Re: Do you know God?

Reminds of the Moravian pastor on the boat with John Wesley after surviving the storm. Do you know Jesus Christ? Yes I'm a missionary for the Church of England. But do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Uh, no. One event and two short questions set in motion a drastic change in Wesley's li...

Re: Finkelstein's New Ark Search

Its discovery would certainly generate a few headlines. Finkelstein no doubt would put some doubtful questioning spin on authenticity. Since he hates the Bible so much he should get to open it. If he drops dead then we'll know its found. y/:]

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

All mammals have the same type of organs and such, so it stands to reason all mammals are 90% identical.

Re: Dating the Exodus - Egyptian chronology

The Ethiopians are pretty adamant the Queen of Sheba was from Ethiopia. I have my doubts about "Egypt" extending into Sudan. Maybe it did a short distance in antiquity. The Sudanese people look different than Egyptians and Ethiopians/Eritreans. Egyptian wall art shows the distinct differen...

Re: Top 5 ‘Heresies’ of 2016:

I noticed in the past year for sure that I was seeing more and harsher remarks about Pope Francis. I don't go looking for comments, just come across them accidentally in various forums. In times past I almost never encountered a negative remark about the previous ones. From the looks of it, if Franc...

Re: Hells Dominion by B.W. Melvin

Ian McCormack cautions people to be careful about assuming if someone is in hell. That's based on his own experience. One thing he stresses is ministering to the dying even if we think they can't hear, because they can hear in many cases. Along with that, ministering to them until they are gone. Tha...

Re: X-Pastor says he left the church because he can no longer teach a lie to black people!

Wow, I wonder how long it took for the congregation to send him packing. Maybe Bart Ehrman had a talk with him.

Re: what is with the anti-pauline movement?

I recognize a number of the "talking points" that are anti-Paul or attempt to diminish his role/authority in Scripture. Won't get into a big elaboration but I used to be sympathetic to anti-Paul rhetoric. That changed as I was going through our church class a year ago. You see, I had never...

Re: Rob Bell AFTER Hell

As a person who likes to asks questions, its easy to see the same trait in Rob. His ministry is a ministry to undermind the truth of the bible based on questions Of course Jesus asked alot of questions too. However, Rob questions don't actually move people towards the truth. He ultimately leaves pe...

Re: John 6 --- Who is the little boy? And other details

Thanks for the in-depth explanation. I just knew there was more embedded in this story than the immediate obvious words and message.
