Re: Why'd God make this tree?

When I read Genesis I'm assuming he's talking about all serpents, all women, all men, and the entire earth. Do you disagree? Reread the text you quoted. Where does it say anything about all serpents, all women, or all men? The text is very specific. It says, "...to the serpent..." "....

Re: Why'd God make this tree?

When I read Genesis I'm assuming he's talking about all serpents, all women, all men, and the entire earth. Do you disagree? God curses the ground and never specifies a boundary. If the ground is cursed, maybe the tree that grows from the ground is affected by the curse, hence dead bird tree. Most w...

Re: Why'd God make this tree?

So you don't believe in the fall of Man, but in the fall of Eden?

*confused*

You do believe we all inherit Adam's sinful flesh, correct?

Re: How Do You Feel About Death?

I'm afraid of premature death, of not accomplishing all I could do. However, if the Lord wants me, who am I to stop him from taking me?

Death itself, should be of no concern for the Christian. It should be the source of joy to finally be with the Lord!

Re: Son of Sam/Son of Hope

I know we all sin, but sometimes it gets me upset that cold blooded murderers can get into heaven, while my well meaning but unbelieving family will not be there. I know God is perfectly JUST. It just irks me slightly, that's all :( I know I should forgive because I have been forgiven. I guess he's ...

Re: Id like to share what i REALLY liked about being 'an Atheist

That's why there is NO HOPE without Christ! Your only hope is annihilation and those who know God know he's not going to let you off that easy! :)

Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

Clay, wasn't sure what you meant. Just "down" often refers to hell - and Satan is not THERE, he's HERE. I honestly don't know where the spirit of God brought me too, I felt like I was going down, but I could be wrong *shrugs* The being that accused me was probably not Mr. Satan himself, e...

Re: God as a big black woman

I'd only make sense if the women was played by Tyler Perry, so we could still call it "Father"!

Madea IS GOD! :P

Re: Microchips could unlock-the future

The mark of the beast is probably either more or less advanced then the chip. It has to be something that someone can't cut out of themselves, a permanent mark, that once taken, cannot be removed.

Re: Hells Dominion by B.W. Melvin

Blessed, while this world has been cursed by God and demon powers... it's still not Hell. God will make things right for them. They will be re-united with their dead children in Heaven, and be greatly rewarded for keeping their faith through difficult trials. Evil is a problem, and God's plan is to ...

I don't have enough faith to be an atheist!

Ok, I'll admit I'm only 44% complete with this book, but this book is a master work of apologetic's for the Christian faith, and it actually proves God, and it proves it requires more faith to be an atheist than to be a Christian. It talks about how the creation of the universe points to God. It tal...

How about being created in the image of God? No other creature is.
