Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Your emotional buzzwords about Jim Crow laws are not relative to the U.S. being a Christian nation. At that time white people chose to separate from blacks in every possible way but I don't see how that relates to the U.S. being a Christian nation. Seems like two separate issues. Seriously? you don...

Re: Survival of the Fittest

I was just talking to Mrs K about chickens and how they must be quite fit. The irony in being fat, unable to fly and apart of every predators diet has allowed them to be the most populous bird on the planet. ;) Did you come up with that on your own, or did you and Mrs K put your two brain cells tog...

I am curious why you are on a Christian website if you're atheist ?
We could ask you a similar question: Why are you on a Christian website, when you have a problem with Jesus being God?

Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

Just something to think about...why are there only two options? Why does it have to be the Sethite view or fallen spirits? And, it seems you are making a distinction between fallen angels and fallen spirits. And I agree with you that Mark 12:25 really doesn't have much, if any, bearing on the topic.

Re: WHAT Jesus is - and WHEN did you know it?

All that to say, I believe a person can come to salvation not yet comprehending that Jesus is God, but that they do believe all the key things Scripture says they must believe Jesus is God's Son, died for their sins, arose, will come again. At some point, they'll have a more mature understanding ab...

Dr. Heiser on the flood: http://drmsh.com/argue-biblical-text-local-regional-flood-instead-global-flood/ I’ve gotten this question before in podcast Q & A, but I was reminded of it today when someone posted this article on Facebook, aimed at “flood geology”: Twenty-One Reasons Noah’s Worldwide Floo...

Re: How Do YOU engage YEC vs. OEC?

Rick, seriously, this is a really nice fellow - but he did get that stubborn, bit irritated, bit smug look on his face as he declared his YEChood. What I took away from the encounter is what I have in similar encounters here on the forum - that his irritation is more than merely being about \\the d...

Re: The big 4-0

You know you're getting old when you can fall asleep faster counting all those birthday candles vs. how many counted sheep it takes you to fall nod off at night! This reminds me of a story... I met a guy I sat next to on a plane, who I thought from his accent was Australian. He was actually from Ne...

Re: How Do YOU engage YEC vs. OEC?

Well, I did show immense self control when he mentioned blood being found in T-Rex bones. :shock: They did find what appear to be blood vessels in T Rex bones, a while back. He probably just got confused thinking blood was blood vessels. That's an honest mistake that any layman could make. It's not...

Re: How Do YOU engage YEC vs. OEC?

All kidding aside*, my point is that in my experience, I've found the age of the earth debate to be a very touchy subject. Mentioning anything positive about Hugh Ross to a yec, is like saying something nice about Donald Trump, to a Liberal. You're most likely going to get an emotional response. I u...

Re: How Do YOU engage YEC vs. OEC?

:lol: You walked right into that one! Good luck with that conversation. Rule number 1: Don't ever, ever, mention the name Hugh Ross, unless you are sure that you are talking to someone other than a YEC. I suggest finding a way to change the subject to something far less controversial, like politics....

Re: Are violent video games sinful?

People can be evil. "But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them." Matt 15:18 It's not things that make us evil or bad, it is the other way around. You mean it's things that make us bad or evil? I am simply reiterating what the gospel says that it is ...
