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: From Gang-banging and Prison to Faith in Christ!

When I saw "gang-banging", I thought the article was about porn stars coming to Christ.

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 ...

Re: Exorcism!

I have seen an actual exorcism and so I am not skeptical one-bit about them.Demon possession is real but is rare as most people are demon oppressed but not possessed.There is a difference between Demon possession and Demon oppression. Although any Christian is capable of casting out demons I do bel...

Note, in the film, the possessed woman has been "exorcized" eight times before - what does that tell you?
It tells me that she's a well paying satisfied customer.

I wonder how much money has been taken in, performing these "exorcisms".

Re: Are violent video games sinful?

Yes, people can be evil and make evil video games. We need a game called "JesusVR". You get to walk around preaching and healing people, glorifying God, etc.. But leave out the crucifixion part - way too traumatic. Leave out the crucifixion? I suppose you want to pretend Jesus didn't die, too?

Video not working for me. All I'm seeing is still pictures with blurred out faces.

Kinda reminds me of early 1980's wrestling, when Blackjack Mulligan used the claw on his opponent, and they used to put a big x across the screen for dramatic effect.
