Yes, because Robert Spencer is obviously nothing but an angel from the sky come to save the world from Islam!

I took one look at that man's photo and knew that the words from his mouth were not worth hearing. Smug and arrogant.

An atheist, a Buddhist, a Muslim, and a Hindu can all overcome instinctual desires and base motivations without Christ.

it was 'in OUR image' what was meant was the image of the trinity. God is one God, but 3 persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. we as humans have three parts too: mind, soul, spirit. our mind is our mental thinking, soul is emotions and such, and the spirit is, well the spir...

You guys have missed the point entirely! Adam didn't "name" everything! That's laughable. What is meant by that is that Adam as man, a new creation in nature, had the expanded consciousness and intellect in that he could recognize the qualities of everything and understand their fundamental being. H...

I could probaly start a cult. 8) I have the look for it and the same strange ideas. People join cults for the exact same reasons they do anything in their lives. There's an inner motivation within them to progress toward things which they consider good for them personally. It's the root of selfishne...

An Open Live Discussion

A lot of ideas and thoughts that I get often vanish within minutes and hours. It's difficult for me to feel ready for discussing things when it may take the other people 12 hours or more to respond to a post of mine. For this reason I'm wondering whether anyone would like to set a time and place (l...

Re: Jesus' last words?

As I understand it, Jesus said all three of these things shortly before dying. I don't know the order in which they were said, but I tend to think that "Eloi, Eloi" came first, then "Father, into your hands", then "It is finished". This is your own opinion. I do not find sufficient proof in the dif...

Actually, I would suggest that all other religions besides Christianity are already united... in that they are all false. You don't find the bias in that statement to be very unattractive to people of other religious faiths? I would suggest that ALL religions are united in the sublime fact that it ...

To repeat: Either Jesus is a liar, a lunatic, or He is Lord. In all respect, Judah, I have to disagree with the main point in your argument. When I first read "Mere Christianity" I too was flawed by that brilliant phrase. I thought, "Wow, this is it! He was either a fraud, a madman, or he was God!"...

Catholicism and Mary

This is a very simple and naive question. I seek no strife in asking and only wish for clarificaiton since my family are Catholic. I do not find in the Bible the justification for the emphasis the Catholic Church places upon Mary. Of course, Matthew and Luke offer lovely stories about Jesus' birth a...

Uniting Religions

Is there a practical way to unite people of all religious faiths throughout the world? I can't help but feel that all religions produce intolerance towards people of other faiths. It's a very simple thing which can be observed among people in matters outside those of religion. It's doubtful whether...

How is "err" pronounced? I've been saying it like "heir" but I'm wondering if it's like "fur"at all.

Also I forgot to tell you... There is some scientific proof that when a person dies their body actually becomes a tad lighter... So perhaps there is some soulweight, but the science isn't extactly sure of the real weight (like 21 grams or something). I remember reading of a Doctor from the 1800's w...
