Re: Please pray for me

Peter1998, in the first place, I know you pray, but are you a Christian? Is this girl one? Because God tells us unmarried people aren’t to be engaging in sexual activity – as it’s a spiritual joining and only for marriage. Do you care about obeying Him in this matter? And every time you sexually eng...

Re: How Old is Mankind, Adam, etc? - Methods and Tools Used!

DB: From a spiritual perspective, does it really matter whether anatomically modern humans came into existence 100K or 200K or even 300K years ago? No, I don't think so. But it does matter when people attempt to bridge various hominids into the human family (labeling them "human ancestors"), so as ...

Re: How Old is Mankind, Adam, etc? - Methods and Tools Used!

DB: the Scriptural record gives us a more precise time frame for the existence of the Biblical Adam, especially since the language of the Genesis 5 and Genesis 11 genealogies do not allow for inserting any gaps between Adam and Abraham. Even allowing for textual issues regarding the numbers in the ...

All About Angels: Myth and Tradition vs. Scripture

Here, in a really fascinating discussion, Dr. Michael Heiser covers the common misconceptions many Christians have concerning angels, how their role appears to have changed, post the Cross, and especially the many false beliefs spurred on by tradition and myth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9CJcv...

Whenever someone gets flack for being whatever color, they should say, "Maybe you should just talk to God about it!"

Re: Latest Thinking on How Covid Virus Spreads

I really think it doesn’t exist here. Maybe the mountain air kills it. Or maybe it doesn’t like tourists. Or maybe the Pentecostals prayed it away. Who knows.

Re: So Hortense sent me a PM.

Considering the very serious and potentially dangerous nature of someone you don't know threatening your family, going to them with reasonable talk as opposed to immediately exposing what has been done as a measure of safety is entirely reasonable. Ed had no idea, until the next day, what he was dea...

Re: So Hortense sent me a PM.

The reason it first became public had to do with Ed wanting to exposing something very serious - as, at the time, I'm sure he was very concerned, not knowing how serious or dangerous it might have actually been. But I think it also offers some good lessons to others to really watch themselves in how...
