Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

I made a few edits to be more clear. I wanted to add on the back of my final remarks in my last post, that is, with Materialism needing be rationally justified itself and not being a default position -- what I find contemptuous, rationally so, isn't that Materialists may believe in their view of the...

Re: Hypocrisy

It's a false dichotemy. Lifestyle preferences have nothing to do with marriage, which is much more than what you do with your sexual organs. The better comparison would be "gay marriage" vs "polygamy" or "open marriage". Ed, sorry to single you out, but I'm sure I know ...

Re: Hypocrisy

And the questions noone ever asks, what is marriage ? Where did "marriage" come from? Is "marriage" religious? Is "marriage" just acknowledging what is natural? Is "marriage" a certificate? Does "marriage" have an true objective meaning? If everyone ...

Re: Anyone here like to surf?

Grew up surfing ages 11-28. It was a very exciting, fun, healthy, healing, elating sport. I thank God for allowing me to participate in his creation. Unfortunaltey, adulthood came calling. Fell out of surfing with responsibilities etc. Hoping to get back in the ocean soon. Love the waves, just body...

Re: What things, already in Heaven, needed to be reconciled?

First, more verses would be needed to support such a thing, that in Christ fallen angels can find reconciliation. In Scripture, I find nothing the sort supported, and rather the opposite. Those angels who oppose God have been chained and await judgement (2 Peter 2:4). Clearly, some are allowed to ro...

Isaiah 9:6 - For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Philippians 2:5-8 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

All this certainty God doesn't exist is just proving my beliefs surrounding Atheists. If one doesn't see the first line of evidences such the orderly world as requiring some super intelligence, then chances are nothing else presented will change their minds. What I see is first needed, is a changing...

Re: The Book of Job: Was Job Real? And if so, why would God allow Satan to test Job?

It is sometimes said in relation to the life of a person, or people, that it isn't right for someone to play God. Isn't one implication of this then that it is alright for God to "play God"?

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, regardl...

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

PaulS could possibly weigh in more here, but JWs nonetheless believe on Jesus, that He is Lord. So lets stick with JWs and not something further off the path such as Hinduism, a Krishna or what-have-you -- where clearly one's faith cannot possibly be in the person of Christ. Yes, JWs theologic is st...

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

To come back to this thread, I've thought about this question for many years, in particular whether JWs, Mormons and the like may be saved. At the end of the day, I believe we have to just say only God knows the heart and whether their faith in Christ counts as true belief. Certainly, I think there ...
