What's so bad about being gay?

As a Christian trying to reconcile the Bible's logic with real world practicality, I have a question. For most of the other laws and guidelines we live by, there's usually good reason as to why we shouldn't. God tells us not to lie, as it just digs us a deeper hole; no sex before marriage because no...

How IS it physically possible for him to be swallowed by a giant fish? Any articles?

Re: Morality - Relative or Objective?

Hi, sorry to bump an old thread, but I've always wondered how evolutionists and other moral relativists see how morality can grow in a universe that doesn't lean either way, so today I just googled it up and came upon this wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_of_morality So, it seems to...

Re: These forums reminds me of Andy Griffith

In Mathew, Mark, and Luke does Jesus ever claim to be the Son of God, if so, where, and if not, why not? I think I may put this question in a thread of its own, in another forum, hopefully so that others can deal with it who won't see it here, also, without, neccessarily, being diverted by the rest...

Atheist Richard Dawkins Supports Bibles in Schools

http://www.christianpost.com/news/atheist-richard-dawkins-supports-bibles-in-schools-75290/ As Dawkins has stated in his ulterior motive, I'm afraid that teachers will teach this not without bias, but that it is a ridiculous piece of text which will distort the students' ability to decipher for hims...

Re: Why Didn't God Just Not Create Us?

I appreciate that the question is an honest one, but can I suggest that it doesn't really mean anything? Therefore, there is no answer, because the there's no question to answer. Let me explain what I mean. First, it helps to understand that some strings of words look meaningful but in the end we r...

Re: Why Didn't God Just Not Create Us?

Thank you for all of the answers, guys! I think I have a pretty good understanding now, but this leads me into another question... Why doesn't God just show Himself to everyone. I mean, technically He did that with Jesus, but that was about 2000 years ago and many people now deny the historicity and...

Re: Why Didn't God Just Not Create Us?

Like I said in the OP, I am indubitably an inquiring High School-er. :) So I assume that you are not a parent. Perhaps you could ask your parents why they had you knowing your life would be filled with difficulties, scraped knees, crying, not-wanting-to-eat-your-vegetables, meeting jerks, possibly ...

Why Didn't God Just Not Create Us?

Note: I am sorry for posting so many threads and making it seem like I'm abandoning them. I am not an Atheist, but merely a Christian who has finally found a forum that has the philosophical and scientific intelligence to answer them. I am also quite busy, so although I read your posts in my threads...

Morality - Relative or Objective?

I know this is a hot debate, but I would like your short inputs on this and possibly in a concise manner explain why you believe morality is objective or relative. C.S. Lewis wrote a ton about this in Mere Christianity, but I have some questions about this. Isn't it possible that morality is relativ...

Fundamental question that I have a hard time determining. Answers like the ones found in gotquestions.org also didn't satisfy me.

Delusion?

TLDR; How can we know if we aren't just deluding ourselves with Christianity into making ourselves more comfortable and ignore the harsh reality that there is nothing after death and there is no higher spiritual being? In addition to this, how do we know all of these "evidences" that supposedly back...

Re: Crazy Atheists in Florida

I suppose I understand that they want to open it up, but I don't believe they thought through this message very thoroughly. Blessing a highway from one religious group doesn't exclusively close that highway to that religious group, but just shows that they care for it. Undoing that just seems to be ...
