From what I know so far, the Bible is silent in regards to organisms on other worlds. One way to look at this is to assume this means wether or not there is life on other worlds is irrelevant to the main topics discussed in the Bible. Another way to look at this is to say that infinite time offers p...

A vital point you mention, Sugaa. Quite a large portion of them seem to dissolve once a good knowlege of those languages is obtained and you read the originals.

Former skeptics...

The curiosity is killing me here. How many christian folks on this forum once considered themselves atheists or agnostics? The reason I ask is because I am entertaining the thought of maybe starting a website where former non-theists could gather, relate to each other, "compare notes", etc.

Even if an ape were to be observed lighting fires; to automaticly assume that that means there is no God would be commiting a logical fallacy. It would only prove that apes are smarter than we once thought. Intelligence is not the defining factor as to what makes us "special" in God's eyes.

A strong case for atheism.

Now that I have you christian folks' attention, maybe someone can help me out here. I am trying to refute an atheist argument I read on the old forum but am not having much luck as it seems to me to be quite solid and reasonable. The argument goes like this: Christian says: Due to the vast string of...

I was just checking out the link to the old forum and I have to say I like the new one much better-- much more focused and purposeful. I come here to strengthen my faith, not be the target of insults by those who simply disagree with my beliefs as would have been the case if the old forum was still ...

Forgot to mention...since we are also talking about tolerance, I am a big advocate of definition #1. "Tolerance", as defined by the socialist far left goes far beyond websters' definition...it is forced accceptance of deviant behavior as "normal" under penalty of ostricism to those who dare voice a ...

Wow...I do believe I've found a home here :). To echo Kateliz, I like y'all too. Seriously, I was expecting a barrage of hate mail after my comment about being un-PC, but it looks like I'm not such a minority here after all :). LittleShepard, God bless you, brother. It is a beautiful thing when a ho...

I voted "other" because I do not belong to any organized church. However, given my study of the many different denominational belief systems, I know that what I have come to believe most closely matches the fundamentalists-- sin nature, accepting christ as our propitiator in place of our righfully d...

Interesting topic. My take on this is as follows: There is much evidence that points to the existance of a Creator, but I am of the belief that He simply chooses to no longer make himself blatantly obvious, like He did in the Old Testement and early New Testement times. The parable of Lazarus and th...

Personally, I do not belong to any organized church. In my "quest" to solve the "Mystery of the Lost Correct Religion", I have arrived at the personal conclusion that early Christianity and Messianic Judaism are the best candidates. Because every christian denomination has something that I vehementl...

I agree, bizzt. Christians should be prepared to give an answer as to why they believe the things that they do. As a matter of fact, it even says that in the Bible somewhere. Later on, I will attempt to resolve some of the apparent contradictions listed in the link you provided. I do not have the ti...
