Re: Protestant v Catholic

Rick, you know my point - that there is no justification whatsoever for asserting Mary to be relevant as one to beseech or pray to so as to receive intercession on our behalf! That's total CC bunk. My point had nothing to do with Who, what, or whatever attributes and nature is inherent in Christ. It...

Re: Protestant v Catholic

Regardless of the human and divine nature of Jesus, MARY was but the human vessel into which and through Jesus took on his human form. And beyond being a human vessel for that birth, Mary was a sinful human being, if but one of the best examples the world has ever had of being a faithful Christian. ...

Re: BOMBSHELL: Most Species the “Same Age” with No “In-Between” Species

Sifting through all of this is immensely impacted by just what COLLECTIVE evidences are sifted. It also has a lot to do with how one views Scripture and interprets it. There is no one chain of evidences a Christian should be open to examining. A whole lot of people don't believe Scripture because o...

Re: Protestant v Catholic

Paul: "Praying to the saints and Mary is a tricky one. We assume that Mary is not waiting on the resurrection since she was the Mother of Christ and holy. y:O2 And just why would anyone have a Scriptural reason to assume THAT? Mary was the physical mother of the human shell that Jesus took on. Peri...

Re: Protestant v Catholic

Whether you pray to Mary or any of the saints, they are all dead and unable to hear you anyway. Only Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God can hear you. While they cannot hear us, they likely do pray to GOD for their loved ones they know are still on earth. And we have no way of knowing if they have any a...

Re: Adam’s rib

K, how could sin have existed in the world before Adam sinned? Where does it say sin existed in the world before Adam and Eve? Romans 5:13 states, "for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given ..." So there WAS sin in the world before God's law was given to Adam. And yet the verse conti...

Re: Adam’s rib

To begin with, either the suggested dates for human settlements FAR outside of ancient Mesopotamia are wrong or the approximate date for Adam is. Or both are about right. ANY other option?

JustHuman: How about you (discussions.godandscience.org) presenting a platform for these discussions.

Re: Adam’s rib

Clearly, if there were pre-Adamites, they would not have been mere non-human hominids. Again, I believe very strongly that there are two very important revelations of testimony from God - that of Scripture and that of the Creation itself (and it's study that brings knowledge per it's testimony). And...

Anyway, looks like white people haven't been doing their contribution - maybe God's allotted time for palefaces is about done?

What if your swimmers can't get the job done? Anyway, I've done my contribution to world population - two is aplenty. But there's a guy at church who is probably about 40 - he and his wife have produced five kids. I don't know of anyone else my age or younger who has more than three - DO YOU GUYS kn...
