Re: Geisler on the Crusades: Myth and Reality

In short, the first couple of Crusades happened because they had to stop the Muslim expansion, and then greed and stupidity took over as it always does. The modern revisionist POPULAR view of the crusades are, like most revisionist views we have, are ungrateful and a product of the very world that w...

Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

I remember that. Here is the thing, billions of people believe in God so there is, at least, enough evidence for all those people so to say there isn't ANY is, well, silly. One can argue that some people require MORE evidence or require more convincing ( whatever that may mean) evidence. That said, ...

Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

I often ask what proof would be enough for the skeptic to believe in God.
The answer:
None.
Belief is a choice and the skeptic chooses NOT to believe what evidence is presented.
That is his/her right of course.

Re: Jesus is the Light of Life

Much like CS Lewis said that, we know the sun exists not so much by seeing it but by what it allows us to see ( paraphrasing), Jesus is the LIGHT and the TRUTH by which we can see what is light and what is truth.

Re: Is Christianity and Belief in God RATIONAL?

Paul: When we understand the Christian, rational view of God ( the Aristotelian/Thomistic view or classical Theistic view), we understand that God MUST exist and the mere fact that anything exists, is proof ( rational proof) that God exists. So, as this "rational proof" seems so incredibly widespre...

Re: Is Christianity and Belief in God RATIONAL?

What is rational? Well, it is a view, a belief, an opinion, based on or in accordance with reason or logic. If we look a classical Christianity and it's notion of God ( Unmoved mover, Uncaused cause, etc) you see that it is very rational. If you look at what some non-Christians THINK and misreprese...

Re: Denial of the Supernatural aspects of God and the demonic

Sorry ladies but the Bible says no women Pastors. Perhaps because of Eve. Who knows. But that's what it says.

Re: Polls: How Can They Be Accurate?

Paul, the United States is the best country in the world. The way that we do everything is the best way to do it because that's how we do it and we're the best.
