Re: Sacrament of Penance

penance goes directly against Scripture. Confess your sins, to those you sinned against, and rebound ("repent" even being a poor translation of the concept, again improperly suggesting that you might engage in some satanic "penance" to make things right; virtually "revenge&q...

Re: Sacrament of Penance

the point may be that they sure seemed confident that they were considered believers, and accepted by God. there can be no such thing as "believing the right way" if "Love believes all things," or at least so it seems to me. at to the Spirit, it seems that many who do not "h...

Re: Why was Ishmael circumcised?

Re: Romans 5:12, Inheriting Adam's Sin, Fate of Babies, Etc.

Spiritual death is the only death relevant to God; while physical death preoccupies the minds of...well, lost people, with all due respect. Death cult people. People seven times worse off than they were before. People who...

Re: Romans 5:12, Inheriting Adam's Sin, Fate of Babies, Etc.

"Who told you that you were naked?" God's initial response to the Fall, points to a human's problem, imo. Scripturally, there is no way around it, all death is a result of sin. nice, K. I'm sure you meant "spiritual death" here, right. All spiritual death. The other being irrele...

Re: "What time is"

murder is wrong--yet you eat meat It's wrong to rape children--but it is ok to send them to public school, and program them for worldly success. You are intentionally avoiding spiritual truth, and your last try, God is existence, is equally carnal, wadr, if i understand your definition of "exis...

Re: "What time is"

:lol: me too. I keep coming back here expecting some actual engagement. An example, a Scripture, something. I don't recollect demanding that my pov be the right one anywhere? I suggested a perspective, is all. Yikes.

hmm. don't think so, sorry Paul. "Many will cry 'LordLord.'" these are "believers," aren't they? Guess it depends on your definitions there, maybe.

Re: Perported Roots of Christianity

As a believer going into a subject dominated by people who adamantly assert there is no God, I always desire to know an answer to any question presented before me about why I believe there is a god. While anecdotal evidence is not hard to come by, it isn't great for logical discussions where the va...
