Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

The decision to believe can be a choice where truth is concerned. Jesus claimed to not only be the way, but the truth.

Re: Is coming to Jesus and being saved simple?

Do you really believe it's the prayer that saves? Isn't prayer more a "sign", an end result, of a causal change that happens more inwardly with our disposition towards God i.e., in our heart? If you understand that, then you should see why not all will be in heaven through merely repeating...

Re: Billy Graham

I know with my own Dad, he had an impact upon him and likley three other of his siblings in the family (out of six in total) coming to Christ in his earlier crusades. Or at least, strong influence, so my Dad mentioned in some random conversation we have over the last year. Billy Graham was around f...

Re: Is coming to Jesus and being saved simple?

Perhaps the complexity comes through our desire to "work" to God whether such is through (self-)righteous acts or rational thinking. At the end of the day, it is so simple that a child can be saved.

Re: Billy Graham

I can't call to mind anyone else, not in my lifetime, who made such an impact for Christ. I'd call what happened under his ministry as a true revival, something that has since only been sung about in Christian churches today. Some are concerned that he dropped the Gospel, replacing it Universalism. ...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

Nils, yes, I'd agree with much of what Sam Harris says that free will is illusory. We have no real agency, not to the extent that we can rise above external and physical influences to do other than what we're predisposed to do by such influences. We're just in for the ride really, like Spinoza's sto...

Re: There is no Hope without Jesus

And logic and reason come from the brain. Call me a sucker, but I believe anything my brain tells me, because well, it (along with the rest of my body) is ME. So I'll believe whatever ME tells me to believe, right? No circularity whatsoever to see here. y=; Move along.

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Iran wants to be left alone, while waging war against Israel via its proxy Hezbollah. Consider that Russia have rebuked Iran, stating they won’t accept the statements that Israel should be destroyed and wiped off the map. Consider also that it is Europe who seems to want to protect Iran from Trump's...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

If you've been following the most recent news, Syrian forces going to help the YPG (Kurds) in Afrin against Turkey, it seems contrary to what the Western media portrays of Assad seeking the destruction of his Syrian people. Why do I say this? Well, let me rewind a number of years. Before I became mo...

K: My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy. Ah, so you wake up with a lass of Polish descent, as well? My bride is 100% pure Polish - which translates to 100% stubbornness, LOL.

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

What are you trying to say Blessed, that there were zero? I guess there really were no nazis either. :P

My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy. Whole family ended split up around the world. Sadly, I never got to meet him, soo much I'd have liked to talk about.

So, we stood up to Japan's aggression - how the heck did we lose respect over this???

Actually, respect was lost for the US avoiding entering the war until Japan attacked.
