Re: Tiktaalik, the transitional star, faces an evolutionary dead-end

ACB, it is incredible how you got sucked into this asserted previous world stuff. You claim to know so much about it, and yet no prophet, apostle or Christ ever mentioned it. And you can only get there by wildly creative use of a few cherrypicked fragments of Scripture. I do, however, give you high ...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Ed: Which politicians, Phil? I haven't come across a mainstream politician yet that favors open borders. Yet, when certain politicians only yell, "no money for any wall ever" - yet without proposing serious and workable alternatives - well, what are we supposed to think they believe and support? Be...

Re: Aliens?

Usaki, read this post: https://discussions.godandscience.org/viewtopic.php?p=241388#p241388 Also, as the vast distances and obstacles to any intelligent aliens visiting or contacting us - the universe is so vast, it could well be that any other beings in the universe are so far away that we will nev...

Re: Trump is scaring me

The problem I have isn't with people who don't want a wall but who also see border security as a great importance (like Ed apparently does) - it's with those who don't see ANY problem that needing solving. Just look at the border crime statistics and the fact there is an enormous problem is obvious!...

Mature, Necessary vs. Toxic Masculinity

There is a lot in media and society that questions or threatens masculine traits in men. But God did not create us to be women, but men. And vice versa. But there needs to be a balance in how a man plays out his God-given masculinity - as it can become toxic to himself and others if used without res...

Is having a border wall bad? Do walls work? Do they have good purposes? Great commentary by Tucker Carlson on this - he calls out the Hypocrisy! https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-democrats-believe-walls-are-immoral-and-that-god-agrees-with-them Now, should the government have to cease t...

Re: Predestination and prayer

Yes, Paul, absolutely! Paul: He decided that ALL that believe in Christ will be saved and that happens to include, Paul Sacramento because he CHOSE to believe in Christ. Notice the underlined portion above - this is why no one could believe without the things God first decided to do beforehand: A) t...

Re: Predestination and prayer

It's a matter of the heart and will, Hana. Many only want to live life as THEY desire to, per their own selfishness and narcissism. Yet they know if the God of the Bible exists, that there are terrible eternal consequences for rejecting Him - so many lie to themselves that He doesn't exist, in an at...

Re: Predestination and prayer

Good questions, Hana! What does it really mean, "we can't believe in our own power"? Jesus says, in John 6:44: "44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him . And I will raise him up on the last day. John 6: 64-65: " 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus kne...

Re: Why i believe in a young earth by ex-evolutionist Dr.Grady McMurtry

Welcome, Warnerchorb! I see you're not a Christian. So, what drives your interest in the age of the earth and universe? I would assume you take an old earth view, as do most you will encounter here do. And theistically speaking, whether the earth is ancient or very young, it doesn't answer the far m...

Re: Brother ill

Hey, Bip - thanks so much for your concern! I don't really know much since his removal. He's a really private person and often doesn't return messages, etc. My last knowledge is that he may still have some residual infection but they couldn't find it - so a week or so ago he was still on IV antibiot...

Re: Predestination and prayer

Paul: TULIP ? TULIP!!! http://www.prca.org/pamphlets/pamphlet_41.html - or rather, the false perversion / interpretation of Scripture, arrived at by attempting to apply man-made logic to God's Word, John 15:16, 1 John 4:19, Romans 9:18-21, John 10:26 - as if these verses supposedly supersede or som...
