Re: The Mark of the Beast

"It should be obvious by now, that Jesus did not mean He was less than God, or an inferior god, when He said that God ("the Father") was "greater" than He was. Jehovah's Witnesses, Unitarians, and other Arians interpret Jesus' words here this way. Arius was a heretic in the ...

Re: Jehovah witnesses

Ok, From your answers, it seems you're saying that The Father is fully God, and Jesus isn't fully God. So to help me better understand what you're saying, let's say the father, being fully God, is 100% God, by nature. Please explain in a percentage, how much of God's divine nature Jesus has. I'm tr...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

Maybe you need to practice what you preach a little better. To say that Jesus says that he's less than the Father, ontologically, as you claim, just shows you are unwilling to change your beliefs, despite the overwhelming evidence. I have no problem accepting God's Word at face value. If Jesus said...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

It isn't logical or reasonable to not believe in God, unless there was nothing (in which case it wouldn't be applicable). The reason people don't, I agree with Ravi Zacharias that it is firstly and primarily emotive. Those who don't believe in God, may be blind to the evidence that we find obvious....

Re: Jehovah witnesses

As opposed to the trinity doctrine, it's not difficult to understand. Jesus said it best... His own words PROVE he's not FULLY God! Jesus said he or the angels didn't know the time of his own return, but that ONLY God knows. If Jesus were fully God, he would know! "But of that day and that hou...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

As being an atheist I don't feel like being irrational. At least I hope not. To presume that all atheists are irrational, as the post-title does suggets, is irrational in itself. There is no one atheist like another, as there is no one Christian like another, etc… Wrong. Atheists don't believe in a...

Re: Jehovah witnesses

I've seen Jesus as a black man, so what could be the harm with God being a big black woman?

Re: Sweet 16 Hoops

Philip,

I'm not really a college sports fan, but if I had to pick a team to root for, it would be the Florida Gators. And since these Florida Gators happen to be playing your South Carolina Capons, care for a friendly wager? y:-?

Re: Sweet 16 Hoops

OK, Rick, you can reminisce all day about the "olden" days, but UNC, they're not even in the top five. They haven't won a title in 8 years. :ebiggrin: Hey, I'm no UNC fan, but I'd take an olden days UNC/Duke rivalry, over what passes for basketball now. I was a huge basketball fan in the ...
