Re: Socialism

In the political world today, a common word we see come up is the word "socialism". This word is often used by many to paint the possible future America under liberals as a hellscape of horror. I thought I'd start a thread to discuss, what is so bad about socialism? Some say that it punis...

Re: Who are we to judge homosexuality/others?

Hello all, I am a very devoted Christian and have been a participant in a Catholic Church for my entire life and I have a lot of really strong beliefs about God and Jesus and Christianity in general. This being said, there is one thing that I have a lot of difficulty believing. This thing is that w...

Re: Trinity and revelation

What do you guys think about this? I feel like I realized something pretty interesting/cool, or I just kind of put too much thought into this. I don't know what you mean by you put too much thought into this. I think you "realised something pretty interesting" and I was blessed by reading...

Re: Ransom paid to who?

So, for those that see the ransom being paid to God, because of our sins, Jesus ( who is by nature God) paid the "wages" of those sins in his death and paid them to God ( with whom He is God), correct? And you base that, typically, on the OT passages that refer to the sacrificial system o...

Re: Trustworthiness of the Bible Canon?

We all know that the Bible canon is the set of books regarded by Christians to be inspired by the Holy Spirit and thus true. The modern Bible canon was assembled by the early church fathers, who determined which books were inspired and which ones were not. Earlier forms of it were determined by the...

Re: Hell cannot be any worse than here on Earth, But...

When we look around and see how unbelievers are living in drug and alcohol controlled lives I am sure they think that life on earth is Hell. These are people without hope and they are in bondage to worse even than the addictions I mentioned. It is a horrible scenario really when we see the rejection...

Re: Is God a material thing?

I've always thought based on my understanding of the Bible that God is an immaterial bodiless mind, and the passages in which he appears are physical manifestations or refer to his spiritual presence. But I'm finding there are not a lot of Bible verses which support my previous idea of God as an im...

Re: Trustworthiness of the Bible Canon?

It's important to remember that the canon of the New Testament was not the result of any pronouncement by any official of the church or any organizational body. Rather, the canon was determined by the authoritative use of these books right from the start by the rapidly expanding church of the first...

Re: Trustworthiness of the Bible Canon?

It's actually more the New Testament that I have trouble with. Jesus affirmed the Old Testamant but the New Testament seems to be where we run into books that didn't make the cut or books being assembled by people who may or may not have had political motivations and whatnot. It feels like with the...

Re: God and parasitic disease

I believe a worthy question on this topic is "how do we know that the parasites and such are in the state they originated in"? Suppose for a moment that what we perceive as parasites were actually something else to begin with. There are many times I have debated evolutionists on the subje...
