Re: Genesis 9:5

Only certain animals? How do you know this? Do animals go to heaven? Mammals for example. And certain birds. If you've ever had a dog for example, you know dogs have a mind, will and emotions. As to whether animals go to heaven, I really don't know. But the new heavens and new earth? Why couldn't t...

Re: human/ape similarity

Why'd God make us similar to apes? This is directed to those who accept we came from apes and those who don't. We did NOT come from apes. Apes and humans share a common ancestor. Same building blocks, that's all. I remember now that we had a primate ancestor that apes and hominids branched off of, ...

Re: Is God's will immutable?

What if God's will is immutable, and it's His will that he heals someone only if you pray for that person? God wants us to come to Him with our needs. Not because He doesn't already know what we need, but to draw us into a closer relationship with Him. He speaks to us primarily through scripture, an...

Re: Genesis 9:5

Animals don't have a soul. When they die they just die, there is no afterlife for them. At risk of sounding pedantic, a soul is the mind, will, and emotions of certain creatures. And certain animals do have souls. Anyone with a dog, knows that. I think you may be conflating soul, with spirit. Human...

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

I didn't know Geisler said that. I'd be interested in reading why he feels that way.

Re: Genesis 9:5

How does an animal give account to God for killing a person? So far two answers seem possible-God will kill that animal, or there will be a sort of day or reckoning in the animal's afterlife, if they even have one. Do animals go to hell? I don't think they do, they seem to be in the same group like...

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

In what ways both? Never mind. You're talking specifically about in the womb. In that specific case, I'm not really sure. But if it's through natural processes, then God was the one who created those processes. So, I'm not sure if it makes a difference. Is there a reason why you think there's a dis...

Re: Did Obama wiretap Trump?

Rick, that ABC story has nothing to do with the elections or with Trump's claims. Trump said that Obama bugged him , not that the FBI was surveiling Russian mobsters in his building during an investigation that ended a couple of years before he announced his candidacy for President. Why are you doi...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

The obvious question I would have for you, is do you believe in the virgin birth of Christ, and his resurrection, which are both New Testament miracles? Yes, I thought you might. The answer, as I wriggled away with just now, is that I don't know. In several circumstances we have an undisputed befor...

Re: Trump: Get over it already. Move on.

This thread is kind of amusing to me. Up until a few months ago people were making anti-Obama threads constantly, and nobody seemed to mind. Now we have the biggest bozo in the history of presidential politics sitting in the Oval Office and we're not supposed to criticize him. Why? Because he's a R...
