Re: Comet: First Agriculture and Neolithic Civilizations

Where is the evidence of an ACTUAL comet hitting the earth during that time?

Re: God as a big black woman

Days after I watched this movie, my new agey friend txt me to say she had watched it. Weird timing... We have never discussed the book or movie. She said she understood christianity alot better now. God is both female and male. And I dont know for sure but I suspect she sees we are all Gods childre...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Yes Kurieuo, you're post is impressive. I'm getting the hang of what God is about. Have to read it again though. But... a quick thought on Byblos' respons: ... And a god who is capable of lying even if he does not, is lacking pure truth and therefore, dependent, and no god at all. If God is so utte...

Re: Belief in the Trinity

OK, I know the Father and Son are not the same person. What confuses me is the terminology used by some and your comment is a perfect example. Jesus Christ did not exist as a man before He was born, so how can you say the Christ is eternal? It is the Word who is eternal. It is the Word that became ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Justhuman, can you give us your definition of God or at least which/what God you are talking about? A God that would come close to a materialistic God? That would be an oxymoron. It would 'just' be a highly advanced being/species, with powers beyond current imagination or understanding. No God ther...

Re: Belief in the Trinity

It's a loaded question and here is why: If Jesus is NOT God how can he save ? How can He forgive? How can He redeem ? OK, we know from John 17:3, that the Father is the one true God. Verse 5 says the Messiah was before the world began, so He must be eternal. The Word who is God was made flesh, but ...

Re: God as a big black woman

Ok, Sorry but you lost me there Nessa... Not sure what your point is that creation does not necessarily equal a child... The Devil/ The Satan/ Lucifier/ Man of Tyre ( if you make the connection that all are the same person)is implied to be One of the Sons of God ( Job) or at least one of His angels ...

Re: "If you were born elsewhere, you wouldn't be a Christian..."

Universalism to me is that God offers ALL men the gift of salvation and ALL are free to accept or reject it.
God "wants" all to come to salvation, even if He knows that some will reject Him.
ALL that do accept are of the body of Christ.

Re: Did All Humans Come From Adam & Eve?

I think that you can TRY ( and at times succeed) in reading science back into scripture BUT there is really no reason to. I don't think that it is unfair to state that the bible was NOT written with science in mind nor is it unfair to state that the creation stories were theological ( God created al...

Re: Why Did Jesus Say, "The Father Is Greater Than I" (John 14:28)?

In the end, it is simple: The Trinity doctrine is a statement about the nature of Father, Son and HS. The Father is God ( no issue there). The Son is of the same nature as God ( if not He can NOT save us) The HS is of God and The Son ( so must have the same nature as well). The Trinity is not a stat...

Re: Did All Humans Come From Adam & Eve?

Tradition is important to help us understand what others BEFORE us thought of these things.
Tradition should NOT be viewed as authoritative however, simply to enlighten us to the views of those before us.

Re: "If you were born elsewhere, you wouldn't be a Christian..."

I agree that God already knows who are His.
That isn't, of course, the same as God deciding who is saved before they are even born.

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

The irrationality of atheism comes when they do not take their materialistic view to it's final conclusion.
