Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Ken: So… are you agreeing with me the possibility of multiple first/eternal causes? Of course not, but I am saying that there HAD to be something eternal with those attributes - some great Intelligence with a purpose in what was created, and great power and ability, per what was created. Ken: Intel...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

TrulyE: How does this in anyway suggest that a God did it? It doesn't matter how you load your default argument with conditions and limitations, you still must DISPROVE all materialistic possible explanations. Anyone can set conditions, make truth claims, or argue from ignorance. But that doesn't m...

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

Let's forget the angels, for a moment. Remember, God is an ETERNAL, creative being. He's been eternally creating things in whatever realm - whether intelligent beings or whatever else. Scripture addresses mankind and our time, our physical universe. But the God who is both eternal and eternally crea...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Paul: With multiple first causes... With MULTIPLE first causes, A) They ALL must pre-exist all physical things (as the universe had a physical beginning), and B) they ALL would have to be eternal AND thus eternally causing things - meaning they would actually ALL be SIMULTANEOUS causes that precede...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

ACB: This is why I no longer present evidence to atheists to try to convince them God exists and instead I tell them if you want proof God is real then get saved by Jesus... You should rethink that a bit. Because there ARE some atheists and agnostics who are willing to change their minds, presented...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

K: 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. Absolutely! Because the only alternative is that some blind, random, non-God, non-intelligent, eternal cause or causes crea...

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

2nd Question: Why would God allow Job to be tested? Yes, we can say that this "bet" of sorts was allowed, but there is one problem. God allowed Satan to kill Job's children and his slaves. Remember, God is far more concerned about the END/eternal results of people's lives. So the answers ...

Re: Can Christians go to bars/pubs?

I have it under control now with 1-4 drinks per night 5 days per week instead 6 or more like before. I'd say if you are drinking more that 2 drinks per night, that is NOT under control. I rarely drink - and almost only beer, when I do - and my rule is I NEVER drink more than two beers, and then onl...

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

K: Given Christ exists and is living, He knows who He is, such that we merely know of Him and trust. We don't need to know absolutely everything about Christ in order to accept Him as a person or our Lord; we can merely recognize such implicitly without having all details. No, we don't need to know...

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

If one asserts Jesus to be anything other than Who He actually is (God!), that is, they define him per a sibling of Satan, just another prophet like Moses, that He's not God - then these people don't believe in the real Jesus. Period! See, I think it is possible that some begin to believe in the So...

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

Per Melanie's quote: For one thing, there are far more heterosexuals around children, not the least because there are FAR more heterosexual men than homosexual ones, and FAR fewer people with children have a homosexual partner. So, really, that's a meaningless statistic -doesn't really indicate anyt...
