Questions on Mark 9:23-25

Question that has been bothering me for a while. Text copied from Biblegateway Mark 9:23-25New King James Version (NKJV) 23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe,[a] all things are possible to him who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe;...

Re: Yoga

Barbeque was invented by pagans... So was Easter, incidentally. First, yoga, not as old as people say. When it was invented a bunch of people claimed it was way older to give it false legitimacy. Westerners seem to love really old eastern crap for some reason. In reality, while the poses did exist t...

Re: Who made the rule that death is the punishment for sin?

Hey, Outlaw. I've only been paying half attention to this thread, since I'm sure most people on here can do a much better job of explaining things then I can. However, there was something you said earlier I want to respond too. I don't feel like looking it up to quote (just did three homework assign...

Re: The Pro' and Con's of Having Exorbitant amounts of Money

Hiya Seekingsanctuary ! I agree with the love and attachment to worldly stuff takes you away from God. I'm mainly interested in discussing the acquisition of LOTS and LOTS of money. e.g. what would happen if you suddenly won $20 mill. ? I can guarantee that it will alter your personality in some wa...

Re: The Pro' and Con's of Having Exorbitant amounts of Money

It's the "Love of money" that's evil, not money in general. Greed is typically evil, money is not. In modern society, it is virtually impossible to live without money, barring homeless people hiding in caves living off the wilderness. Obviously, gluttony is bad. That doesn't make food morally wrong.

The link isn't working right for me. It acts like it is a real URL, but it takes me to an error page. Broken link or technical issues?

Re: Israel: Small Country, Big Ideas

Many have left their homes. Look at the residents of several communities, a quick search brought up one or too, like Zeitoun. Some are not healthy so they stay, this includes the elderly. Others feel they do not have anywhere else to go (I don't know if that's true or not, Palestine or the other Pal...

Re: Israel: Small Country, Big Ideas

Lonewolf, many of the sources you mention have high levels of ignorance of the Holocaust and levels of antisemism. Those sources are more biased then the mainstream. Hamas was elected in legislature, yes, but they didn't gain control over the executive branch until after several violent conflicts wi...

Re: Contradiction between Luke 5:20 and John 3:16

The verse you are referring to is Matt 7:21. Anyway, the issue here is Context. Jesus says this after talking about a lot of false prophets and their actions. The people He is referring to is them. Some people who aren't saved think they are, justifying themselves via their works or alternatively we...

ISIS members: sad about Robin Williams, huh.

Okay, obviously not all are. Some of course, acted like trolls about the whole thing. ISIS member sad about Robin Williams passing on, he liked Jumanji. So there are two things I take from this story: 1. Robin Williams is so great, both Americans and Jihadists are mourning his death. 2. The lack on ...

Re: Israel: Small Country, Big Ideas

Lonewolf, how exactly are we too 'religious' or too 'western'? First, I actually don't view Israel in much of a religious light. Second, nothing I said was 'western', I listed facts as they were. You can't simply post something like what you did, barely a sentence or two with no explanation, and exp...

Re: Collateral damage

What about bombing from 20Kft? Many strikes are planned with an acceptable percentage of known collateral damage. Are deaths by natural disasters considered acceptable? We are not in control of natural disasters. Acceptable does not matter. A bombing, when it avoids a land invasion, is preferable. ...

Re: Israel: Small Country, Big Ideas

Well, I would say it is ignorant. Yes, civilians have died during the conflict, but the sheer responsibility falls on Hamas. First, they continuously use the Palestinian people as shields. http://www.algemeiner.com/2014/08/07/conclusive-proof-that-hamas-uses-palestinians-as-human-shields/ This artic...
