So long as you understand my position, that's my concern. Again, I definately feel that I perfectly understand your position. It's just that I'm not convinced... What can you offer in terms of a convincing argument that reinforces such a narrow definition of the means of our salvation? I think the ...

Yikes! In such conversations I'm of the opinion that what one is looking for is external validation of one's beliefs (i.e. validation through science). If you don't want to resort to an external source of data then there is really no discussion because each can have their faith completely aside from...

Just skimmed the link but in general I would say it's a strong possibility. In fact, I would consider it a possibility that Satan is preparing the social consciousness for unification by slowly integrating the concept of other intelligent beings visiting us. Proof that 'we are not alone' could be a ...

It's not enough that God created light as well as the heavens? Both those things combined would pretty much account for all matter wouldn't you say? Actually light IS matter, as shown by Einstein and also by nuclear conversions that change matter into energy. As for the heavens, if heavens means the...

I've wondered the same thing as the OP about thinking. I speak only English, and I think in words and they are English. For instance when I realize I'm hungry, it's almost like I can hear the 'inner voice' say "I'm hungry." I've often wondered what it would be like to speak 2 languages, and would th...

It seems that all religions are human constructs and that is why there are alot of them and they are all flawed. Untrue. Christianity is God's construct, and the Bible is the inspired Word of God . Would a loving God create beings in His image, as objects of His affection, and then NOT explain to t...

So, what you are saying to me is that you don't have to understand WHAT you are receiving from Christ. You just have to trust Him for something. This is the thrust of your point I think. To some extent I think it IS true that you don't have to understand. It's clear to both you and I that you have ...

I've studied most of the world religions myself, I would have to agree that Jesus is the only way and that God reveals his PURE love to all the nations of the world. It might sound kind of shallow, but when you line them up, Jesus fulfills all the requirements. That's it for me too. No other religi...

You said it yourself, that if they believe that continued faith was necessary, then they are advocating salvation by works. Thus, you stating "Since Byblos doesn't see the perseverance as an additional condition to accepting Jesus' salvation, he doesn't believe in an additional condition, and is th...

But heresy? To make it clearer, I don't know... There are sometimes when that thought may have crossed my mind. I believe that the belief that trusting in one's own ability is wrong but as for the person doing it, well don't we all at sometime in our lives (or even as a believer) trust in our own a...

K, Jac hasn't responded in a while so let me flip this around. I think I've shown that people can place an importance on works but this importance is not seen as earning salvation and therefore doesn't take away from one's faith in Jesus. But I was reading another thread from back in January, in whi...

I was making the assumption that in the same way light is both a wave and a particle, so too would a gravity wave also be both. So by being able to detect the waves, we can build upon to detect and study gravitons. Am I off-base here?
