Re: Marxism.

I think a completely capitalist is far more "evil" (as it has been put) than a socialist one as in a completely capitalist system those who are injured or can't work are simply left to die. First of all those who are injured or can't work are not left to die. They are covered wtih welfare system. T...

Re: Marxism.

Modern ideas developed by use of the Social Conflict Theory in order to consolidate power and control of a ruling intellectual elite class over the masses. This basically states that the use of any conflict, natural catastrophe, or even a contrived imagined potential catastrophe, should be used to ...

Re: What is the meaning of fasting?

Fasting is not a waste of time and is Biblically recommended and mandated in several instances. Fasting is a physical AND spiritual discipline. The bringing of the body under the control of one's own will and spirit for the purpose of focusing upon God and added time in prayer is something that far...

Re: Marxism.

I sitll think that communism is evil system, largely because of its clear denial of God's existence. It is an obvious offence. The systems that you are living in your countries are different from a world where mainly communism rules. The welfare state is like a casino where people either work for be...

Re: Marxism.

I have heard of Christian communism. I don't know why such term could emerge. On the contrary to your opinion, I would think that the Christians are allowed to profiteer. I know that it is not exact interpretation of some passages like Luke 19:11-27 where the king are to ask the return the servants...

Re: Clean and unclean foods

I remember some passages in Leviticus food must be cooked. I was told the Jews weren't knowledgeable about the hygience so God told them how to avoid viral infection out of eating uncooked food.

what do you think?

Re: Marxism.

I would agree that power is highly centralised in socialism as well as communism. The subordinates do not decide because they fear that the authority would challenge them. Therefore, when you go to China, you would find that the officials do not do anything unless the authority tells them to.

Re: Is ID non-scientific because it has relgious implications?

Even though I haven't yet gone through the details about ID, I would think that the problem with ID is not its scientificity, but its logicality. ID presumes that all designed indicates the existence of a designer. If it worked, it must do with cause-and-effect logics. Cause-and-effect logics is tru...

Re: sabbath keeping

I used to be taught that all laws are good and written by God himself except the additions made by Pharisees and Teachers of the Law. They added burden to the Jews and Jesus reprimanded them savagely. The salvation is intended to perfect the laws (not destroying them, please read the verses in Roman...

Re: sabbath keeping

I trust that certain rituals are good for our belief and knowing him. It may sound like Catholic; we are fleshly and weak, prone to fall to transgression so we need certain kind of disciplines that guide our behavior.

Re: What do you say?

It is the reason why all culture must live in God and no culture should go with atheism. All societies need a standard of ethics which undoubtedly must come from bible written by our Creator. IT is aweful that ethics is to be set by political system; if the parliament debated if they should kill wit...

Re: The Authencity of the Bible.

First of all I must clarify for myself I wasn't standing in any absolute position. I am neither absolutely against the religion (I look at myself being a Christian; so if anyone scoffs at Christian faith he does at me just as well as all others), nor absolutely for the religion (it is hard testing t...
