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

ACB: ...we lost respect.


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

Re: Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire

no mean singy song Amen to that! All of those Disney things are tied to merchandising, demands for soundtracks, and creating new little tween "rockstars." Really, they are mostly cartoon musicals. And the one Disney movie I hate worse than ALL other ones: "High School Musical" -...

Re: How were the Chaldeans in Hab 1:5-6?

DB: I think we can see a similar relationship between the spirit world and the behavior of Rome in the first century. And Judaism did frequently draw parallels between OT Babylon and first century Rome. Yes, can you imagine a people so evil that they wagered on and saw as sport people being ripped ...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

Not to mention one has to read into the text that Jesus visited hell. PLUS, remember how Jesus told the Disciples to shake the dust from their feet to anyone that rejected their message - to move on. Jesus would not be preaching a message that was too late - after their deaths - to people already ju...

Re: Mike Pence

Ed: His carefully constructed political identity is that of a thoroughly decent person.

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

Yeah, Hitler was a peace-loving guy who had no ambitions beyond Germany's historical territories? That's why it's submarines were constantly sinking ships in the Atlantic. A deluded, evil megalomaniac bent on genocide, building a war machine like no other - really, if he'd conquered Europe, wonder w...

Re: The Resurrection Events Analyzed by Scholars

Isn't it interesting, you crack open a Bible - even early in the OT - and you read of a geographic place and then go to a world atlas to search for it. Almost always, it's there - or the newer name is there instead of the ancient one. Try that with something like the Book of Mormon!

Re: The Resurrection Events Analyzed by Scholars

To further get a feel for the Jerusalem of the Resurrection and Jesus' time, I thought I'd give some interesting visuals. Here is a model of the 2nd Temple of the Jews – remember, the First Temple constructed by Solomon was destroyed, later to be rebuilt under Nehemiah. It is this second Temple tha...

The Resurrection Events Analyzed by Scholars

We all have so many questions about the New Testament's recorded events leading up to Jesus' Resurrection. To understand it on a far deeper level, it needs to be dissected per it's historical, First Century, Roman-occupied Israel and its religious, political, spiritual, and prophetic contexts. I ha...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

The rich man did not have the love of God present with in himself besides being unsaved.


Because one cannot be saved and NOT have a deep love and concern for their fellow man. Good deeds and compassion are natural outflows of a person re-born of the Spirit.

Re: Why doesn't Judaism proselytize Judaism ?

Rick: You seriously know of people from no other religion who lie or mislead, in their responses?


Yes, why single them out. Do you see Muslims evangelizing to convert Christians or Jews? Hindus? I do see lots of atheists doing so, however.

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

I sincerely hope you're wrong.

They'd never get Congress to approve it, or to send troops to fill any resulting power vacuum. Iraq opened a lot of Americans eyes to the folly of such.

Watch what Lindsay Graham's response is.

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Trump, clumsy with Syria, yes. But his past statements appear to show him desirous of avoiding quagmires and nation-building. Seems the best way for the Syria war to end is just to segment it and broker a piece that leaves Assad in power. Else the civil war drags on with increasing human costs. Remo...

Rick: It's one thing to work together with different groups, to talk about things that happened, but to ask forgiveness for something I personally didn't do? Right - we're not responsible for the sins of our fathers! And often, such PC thinking would have: A) People apologize who B) are not responsi...

Re: Was Jesus Tortured in hell for 3 days and 3 Nights?

This wrong idea comes from a misunderstanding of 1 Peter 3: 18-19: 18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, 19 in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, ...
