Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I place Q in the same bin as CNN. After thinking about this, it’s actually a pretty good comparison. Neither is reliable, nor accurate. Ok, this is getting a little silly. It is more accurate to compare CNN with Fox News. Both organizations are biased and have perpetuated agenda based misinformatio...

FACT: it is alive.
FACT: it is genetically human, with BOTH the DNA or mother and father, not just the mother like an organ or such. It is already distinctive.
Ergo: it is a human life.

That said...
There are legal and moral reasons for taking human life.
self defense for example

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

Science defines anything "alive" as a thing that is, alive. NOT dead. It it weren't alive, she wouldn't be pregnant. If the live fetus isn't human, what is it Ed? As I said, prior to viability a fetus is alive in the same sense that a kidney is alive. It's essentially an extension of the mother's b...

There are rising of atheism is on the raise so will Christianity be decline? I mean people my age are don’t really believing in it. This has a lot to do with abusive and the fact of why so why do we need to suffer. Some of it also has to deal with how we do worship now. This is incoherent. You may ...

Re: Neanderthals - Recent Finds and Surprising Activities

DB, Genesis 1:26 tells us that after completing the animal kingdom God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that cree...

Re: Neanderthals - Recent Finds and Surprising Activities

DB: But I keep coming back to 2 basic questions: 1. Are Neanderthals species homo sapiens sapiens? No 2. Are Neanderthals image bearers of God? Again, the one and only species that Scripture ever refers to as 'image bearers of God' is species homo sapiens sapiens. What about the Neanderthal DNA dis...

Re: Neanderthals - Recent Finds and Surprising Activities

I agree with much of what you think however I don't see how you can go back 150,000 - 200,000 years ago as far as when God created man and woman in Genesis 1 on day 6 from a biblical perspective just because of science. Some quick comments... Two distinct fields of science indicate that biologicall...

Re: WAS Nero the Beast written of in Revelation - or NOT?

So what about Jesus with the sword? Was that meant to be taken literally? Let's see if Scripture can help us interpret Scripture. Let's start with the vision of Jesus that is described in Revelation 1:12-16 12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven g...

Re: Is salvation Given or is it earned?

That God has the foresight what we choice before we do. That God or the foresight that before I know knew him I would be saved. C.S. Lewis discusses this issue in "Time and Beyond Time" in his classic Mere Christianity. Here is an audio clip of that chapter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHchZv4u...

Re: Anyone else horrified?

I guess what throws me is how frequently I hear western conservatives repeating Russian propaganda. That's an opinion piece from a publication owned and controlled by the Russian government. It's spin from a foreign power whose main goal is to damage and weaken the West - to drive allied countries ...

Re: Preterist

Is Preterist biblical? There are people who believe in the fact all the things that were told in revelations and other parts were already fullied. Depends on which type of Preterism you are referring to. From https://www.theopedia.com/preterism A. Partial Preterism, the older of the two views, hold...

I wonder how much money this sham cost the taxpayers.
Well the National Debt has increased by over $3 Trillion dollars over the last three years.
Is that the sham you are referring to?
