Re: Morality

Nils: Philip, I have objection to your definition of Christians, that they have to be truly committed... That's because you reject the BIBLICAL definition of what it means to be a Christian. You also ignore what Jesus taught about how to treat one's fellow man. And you probably do this because it d...

Re: The Last Jedi (possible spoilers)

I never have understood the mania over Star Wars . Perhaps because I found the originals' lengthy battle sequences (that all play out like video games) just massively boring. I much preferred Star Trek - especially The Next Generation , as far more interesting and realistic. Isn't it true that most ...

Re: Morality

Nils: "You never see ... a significant percentage", indeed a weak statement. And again you define away those Christians that do "unwarranted violence and atrocities" as not being committed Christians. Nils, such people certainly are not following the teachings of Christ - ARE th...

It’s just that, as I’ve never split a thread before, I’m likely to screw it up.

Re: Alien spacecraft?

UFOs - whatever their true identity - just a big sci-fi joke, right? Not according to the U.S. Department of Defense, that has been spending $22 billion a year on investigating them. Here, from Dr. Michael Heiser's website, an article and short video about that:

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

BTW, we are WAY off the original topic - could one of the mod technical gurus please split this thread at some logical point?

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

Ed: Phil, I'm apparently one of those who's rejected God in favor of my own desires and evil pursuits. The thing is, I'm having a tough time identifying which of my pursuits are evil. So let's see... I'm married to a woman on whom I'm not cheating and never have. I have two kids that I don't abuse ...

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

God most certainly IS fair to everyone! Scripture reveals he's made EVERYONE aware of His existence - but the problem is, many suppress that knowledge in favor of their own desires and evil pursuits, rejecting what they have ALREADY been made aware of God's existence, turning instead to all manner o...

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

Stu, read through this: https://bible.org/seriespage/lesson-11-god-s-impartial-judgment-romans-212-16 Note that, as God is a Trinity of three Persons - with each Member (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) equally being God - so, to reject any one of its Members is to reject God as He truly is. One can...

Blessed wrote: Philip, Do you believe anyone who is not a Christian is going to hell by default? Yes, and I believe it because Scripture teaches it. - this is the reason for the immense importance of the Great Commission.

Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

Ed: No offense taken, although I think it's a mistake to discount my views simply because I regard the gods in question as human inventions. Whether they're real or imagined is irrelevant to the question. Anyone can see the similarities and differences in the teachings of the Abrahamic religions. I...

Re: Morality

Nils: You say that morality is God based. No, not ALL morality is God-based. But much of it is born of religion-based influences - whether Christian ones or not. But not all - some merely see peaceful and fair interactions with their fellow man to be preferable to the opposite. Nils: My question is...
