It's a rhetorical question - mostly wanted people to discover the many places in the Bible that are mysteries or apparent contradictions...
Rhetorical question...OK. At first it sounded like a typical atheist taunt.

I forgive you.

Re: Does or does NOT God change His mind?

Since God knows the end from the beginning, he doesn’t change his mind.

Re: 10 generations and done?

This “300 Years And A Nation Is Toast” idea seems like the now-discredited “21 days to start a new habit”. The idea is interesting but on closer examination it just doesn’t hold up. Just one example: the modern French republics started in 1792 and we are now at the Fifth French Republic. If you coun...

Re: Catholics Polled about Communion

Montreal is one big slum. It comes in a close second to Baltimore. Third on that list is Detroit. Surely it can't be anywhere near as bad a Baltimore. That place is a dangerous, crumbling, crime capital! Was there in the fall - to see a dying friend. First stoplight - besieged by aggressive "window...

Re: Catholics Polled about Communion

So, you're saying that independent burger joints don't have menus? How would we know prices? I think you're also confused about the restaurant business. I went to an independent burger joint in N’Awlins and ordered something on the menu. My wife asked the guy if she could have something she imagine...

Re: Youtube: The term "Christian" is unacceptable

There. Fixed it for you. I’d rather be depressed in a Bentley than in a Stingray any day... You would be depressed in a Bentley. A recent survey found that Bentley was the least reliable car brand out of 37 manufacturers. Your Bentley might be in the shop so much, that you'd be taking the city bus,...

Re: Youtube: The term "Christian" is unacceptable

A Mormon told me that they don't drink coffee. I said, "A cup of coffee every day gives you wonderful benefits." He said, "Like what?" I said, "Well, it keeps you from being Mormon..." A Baptist once told me, “Money can’t buy you happiness.” I said “You’re right ...but I’d rather be depressed in a ...

Re: Catholics Polled about Communion

You have weird Burger Kings in French Canadia. Here in the US, Burger King's slogan is, "Have it your way." So basically, you're saying that the RC Church allows people to decide what they want in their services. If they want extra wafers with their wine, that's fine. Hold the Divine Liturgy. Fine,...

Re: Catholics Polled about Communion

Oh, I well know Catholic stuff - my wife grew up a Catholic in New England - her entire family is Catholic, and are very Bible ignorant. They never talk about God or Christ, and I've never seen a Bible in their houses. They are pros at going to Mass but never discussing anything spiritual. Yeah, bu...

Re: Youtube: The term "Christian" is unacceptable

Did I ever tell you that I used to be a member of the Jehovah's Witness Protection Program? I would go door-to-door, pretending that I was someone else. I don’t know what to say. Maybe I should have sent you to the Mormons... A Mormon told me that they don't drink coffee. I said, "A cup of coffee e...

Re: Youtube: The term "Christian" is unacceptable

I choose 4. Have bamboo stuck under my fingernails for a week, while listening to an endless loop of Celine Dion's greatest hits. There was no fourth choice. I condemn you go door-to-door canvassing with Jehovah’s Witnesses for the next week. Since this is Sunday, go immediately to the nearby Kingd...
