Re: Asking God to reveal himself?

Re longing, you are confusing cause with causation. Hana didn't long after God, not initially. There is no catch-22. There is no argument here being made to you either, other then telling you (well trying) as it is froma Christian pov. Scripture says none of us seek after God. If true, this means we...

Re: Adam’s rib

I've not mentioned "genetic progenitor", although I can see why you jump to such being the case since many might take that view by all being in Adam, yet then none who are in Christ are genetically related to Him. So, I see it as irrelevant. Amen... That is one of the key points that I am trying to...

Re: Adam’s rib

Well why would God do that then? Also, where does the early people who lived for a million years like H. erectus fit in? We see they died beforehand, how are they sinners if they lived eons before Adam*? *most here think Adam was round few hundred thousand years ago sooo What I highlighted in your ...

My wife tells me she looks after five kids, but we've only had four so I don't know what she's on about.

Wasn't that given to Adam and Eve? :) Also, WWJD? :P

Re: Adam’s rib

All people have sinned and are affected by the sin of Adam... regardless of their genetic ancestry. And Christ died to save all people... regardless of their genetic ancestry. There is no Scriptural correlation between a person's genetic relationship to Adam and either their participation in the co...

Re: Adam’s rib

I wonder, for those who show a fondness for a pre-Adamic race, isn't racism to some degree justified? Short answer... no. As I mentioned above genetics tells us that all humans (independent of race) are all descendants of common ancestors in Africa. So there is no justification for racism of any so...

Re: Adam’s rib

I wonder, for those who show a fondness for a pre-Adamic race, isn't racism to some degree justified? It seems it would be hard to reconcile promises of God, indeed Christ, with those who belong to a non-Adamic race that had no fall nor covenant with God. Excluded from the story in the beginning of ...

Re: Asking God to reveal himself?

Hi Nils, your story is similar to my own story, only the question I asked was different. You may find my story on this forum, but here is very short version. I was born atheist, but always longed for the truth. Also always tried to be honest. One day missionaries came into my life and after that it...

Re: Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake

Yet, to say someone's services should be state enforcable, for ANY reason, to me rings of slavary and that we're all -- all people in that state -- are ultimately state property rather than truly free. This I strongly resist and disagree with. Your house is state property. Your property taxes are "...

Re: Did we choose God or did God choose us? Your personal testimony...

Short careful response there. ;) You'd think God pursuing us would be irresistable. This would be one area I'd disagree with many Calvinists on, afterall who could possibly resist God? So then, given only some are saved, God must necessarily "elect" some to be saved, and those God elects He pursues,...

Re: Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake

K, If I'm reading you correctly, you're saying that you'd rather a company be able to refuse service to someone who is black for example, because they are black, without the govt. interfering? Perhaps the social outcry against the company would be enough to keep companies from this kind of behavior...

Re: Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake

So then, I gather that is a "yes" to my question. That is, you ultimately believe in state enforced servitude under certain circumstances (i.e., where not providing a service is due to discriminatory beliefs)?
