Re: Age of Consent

I spend a great deal of time discussing Islam and Christianity with Muslims. The age of consent came up. I came to G&S for some input because I usually get good responses. The argument is that God did not specify the age of consent, and He didn't. In my view, God left it up to the parents to dec...

Age of Consent

https://chnm.gmu.edu/cyh/case-studies/2 ... &source=24

Does anyone know why the State of Delaware's age of consent for a girl is 7 years of age? How could a girl of 7 be ready for sex?

God does not tell us in the Bible what the age of consent should be. Why not?

Thanks.

Re: How do members of the Trinity communicate with each other?

Perhaps it is not necessary to know HOW the members of the Trinity communicate; God has not revealed the HOW; it is more important to know that they do communicate.

Thanks, Guys.

How do members of the Trinity communicate with each other?

How do members of the Trinity communicate with each other?

Are there any Scriptures that prove that they do communicate with each other?

Thanks.

Re: Who is John the Elder?

About a year ago I did a personal study on the Authorship and Date of the Gospel of John. Both the internal and external evidence demonstrate pretty compellingly (for me at least) that John the Apostle was the author of the Gospel of John. Below is a quick summary of my notes. A. External Evidence ...

Re: Who is John the Elder?

Well, you can go a step further really. See, nowhere does the GOJ state WHO the beloved disciple was BUT only one person is mentioned in the GOJ as the one that Jesus loves and that is Lazarus. This has made some conclude that the GOJ was passed on by Lazarus to the writer of the GOJ ( which could ...

Re: Who is John the Elder?

Here is a decent discussion of the issues surrounding whether or not John the Apostle and John Elder (Presbyter) are one and the same. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_the_Presbyter Some relevant quotes from the article John the Presbyter was an obscure figure of the early Church who is either di...

Re: Epistle of Peter to James

Honestly, you need to be very mindful of the writings outside the NT because it is very easy to get mislead into thinking they are valid, when they are not. And they are not valid because they are outside the canon, no that is not the reason. They are valid because they teach false teachings, like ...

Re: Epistle of Peter to James

That epistle is not part of the NT. If I recall correctly, it is dated to much later than the NT writings. It is not written in the same literary style as the NT letters of Peter. He quotes Matthew: "The heavens and the earth shall pass away, but one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass fro...
