Re: Is God's will immutable?

There are passages that seem to imply that God can change His mind ( the famous discourse for Sodom and Gomorrah comes to mind) BUT I don't think these are cases of God changing His mind as much as they are cases of God allowing humans to see the full consequences of what they believe ( No good was ...

Re: Jehovah witnesses

One must distinguish statements of authority ( The Father is greater, Only God is good) from statements of nature ( and the Word was God).

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

How did people believe in God BEFORE the bible? One can not prove the existence of God via the bible unless one believes the bible to be authoritative and one can ONLY believe that if the bible is of God, which makes the argument circular and not very useful. The bible can be used to point to THE Go...

You are being kind.

Ignorant people are those that don't KNOW the facts.
Stupid people are those that THINK they know but are to lazy and stupid to actually find out and repeat crap they hear.

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: Jesus's death

It seems JWs make it a big issue if Jesus was on a cross or stake. Am I right? If so why? Simple to be different than the rest of Christianity. It was not always the case, by the way, it started with Rutherford and continues to this day. The creator of the Bible Students ( Charles Russel) that late...

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

@PaulS, what intrigues me, is a timing issue I see between paleontology and archaeology. The following are rough timings based upon my memory of previous read stuff so forgive it they're off. We have anatomically modern humans are dated back to 125k+ years ago within paleontology. Archaeology, howe...

Re: earth's age and God

Age is a measure of time, relative time, and is applicable to OUR universe only. Anything outside our universe, our realm of existence, is not subject to the same "rules". God, by the very definition of being God, is Eternal and IS existence so there was never a "time" that God n...

An absolute negative is not logical or rational.
Agnostic is the more rational view.

Re: New Theological discourse happening

Personally, I do think these "other gods" do exist, these false gods that have "revealed" to some these false "gospels". The "angel" that gave Mohammed his vision or the angel that gave Joseph smith his vision, were not angels of Our Lord, of God, but false &q...

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

Scripture says that ALL life was brought forth by the God, via the waters and the earth: 20 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds[g] fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” 21 So God created the great sea creatures and every living creatur...
