Re: Did God Create The Trinity?

The Nicene Creed (which isn't scripture, but most folk would agree with it's orthodoxy) declaresthat Jesus was "Begotten, not made", which CS Lewis explains like this: When you make something, like a painting or a sculpture, it might look very much like you, but it isn't ever going to be anything bu...

Re: House churches...

The best thing about house churches is that it facilitates the "priesthood of all believers" more readily than a congregational setting with a pastor or priest or whatever at the front leading, and what is essentially an audience responding. Traditional church tends to separate the minister from the...

Re: Books

The books that I enjoyed most recently, that I felt were informative, easy to grasp and covered the basics best would be Mere Christianity by CS Lewis, What's so Amazing About Grace by Philip Yantze, The Body by Charles Colson and How to Read The Bible For All It's Worth by Gordon Fee. Nothing heavy...

Re: Human embryology bill (In England)

Yeah, that's part of it. It also includes (or rather, it excludes) the concept of a father, so that if, for instance, a lesbian couple decided to have a child by artificial insemination of donor sperm, both women would be registered as the legal parents, with no reference to the donor father. Anothe...

Re: reasons NOT to give to a Church

Jesussmiles has the right attitude, IMHO. I have chosen (of my own free will, being in my right mind, and not influenced by any kind of brainwashing) to live in a christian community where ALL my income is given to the church, I don't actually own anything, and all those who contribute are able to d...

Re: Christians who committ suicide

A friend of mine lost her husband to suicide a couple of year ago following about nine years of a depressive illness. She talks about depression as being a terminal illness, that her husband died of depression. I think I go along with that in general. How responsible,in Gods eyes, is someone for thi...

Re: duck jokes

A duck goes into a butchers shop and says "Have you got any string?" "No, this is a butchers. We don't sell string." says the guy at the counter. Half an hour later the duck returns and says: "Have you got any string?" "I already told you. We don't sell string", says the guy. A short while later the...

duck jokes

A duck walks into a drug store and asks for some lip-balm. "Yes sir", says the pharmacist." Will you be paying cash?"
"No" says the duck."Just put it on my bill".
Laugh? I nearly did!

How do you turn a duck into a soul singer?
Microwave it till its bill withers!

Re: marijuana/prostitution

I used to do a bit of agency nursing, and one of my patients was a youngish chap of about 36, who was suffering from MS (Multiple Sclerosis), a truly horrifying disease that robs you of your dignity and independence long before it kills you, which it usually manages through complications such as pne...
