Re: Salvation Equation? Jesus Coming back in 2028?

Jesus said we should be be on watch for his return. "No man knows the day nor hour" might actually be a reference to Rosh Hashanah, and notice he never said we can't know the year. Also, would you consider Faith that leads to repentance a work? Or would you be a universalist, thinking no one has to...

Re: Salvation Equation? Jesus Coming back in 2028?

In Jesus' own words, we are told NOT to try and wonder WHEN the end will come.
Acts 1: 6-8

So, maybe we should listen to Him.

Re: What happened to Jesus Body?

We know that Jesus body was real, He was touched and He could eat, thus it was a material Body. We also know that it was not a normal Human body and we have Paul stating that our new bodies after the resurrection ( and it is always a PHYSICAL resurrection in the Bible) will be very different than ou...

Re: problem

What is God? According to our ancestors, who recorded their beliefs in the Bible, God is an all-powerful and all-knowing entity, living somewhere outside of our world, who created the world and controls what happens in it. My definition of God is slightly different; I tend to think that God is not ...

Re: Miss Socialist Lite Snubbed by Obama

I see your points Rick, but the problem isn't universal health care, its education and crappy elected officials. No, the solution isn't universal, government run healthcare. More government control here in the US, is not the solution to anything. Well, private health care isn't working so... Sugges...

Re: Pope Nixes the Death Penalty!

My view on the death penalty is simple:
Death is a release, not a punishment.

Re: Miss Socialist Lite Snubbed by Obama

Why should the government pay for universal health care? Off all the crap that government uses tax dollars on, don't you think that keeping people healthy is a good use of tax dollars? Well, other than that fact that a healthy populous is a productive one: Universal health care means that ALL will r...

Re: Miss Socialist Lite Snubbed by Obama

The government can use tax money to cover the cost of universal healthcare, freeing people to move more readily between industries, or to take a shot at self employment or entrepreneurship. Beyond that, it would protect families from catastrophe. We're living in a system where losing your job will ...

Re: Miss Socialist Lite Snubbed by Obama

Never been a fan of socialism since, well, it has never worked very well.

I think it works when, as an example, 8 years of socialism is tempered with 8 years of conservatism ( or vice-versa).

Re: Gerald Schroeder: The Bible, Time and Science

We should NOT ASSUME.

I think the speaker, Frank, makes some valid points.

We can't deny that Genesis 1 SEEMS to imply a 24 hour period of days ( with no mention how long BETWEEN days).
We can't deny that in Genesis "yom" can and does mean longer periods of time other than 24 hours.

Re: Domestic Abuse

So here is the thing. Many view the comment by Jesus that divorce is only permissible due to adultery as some statement that ONLY when a spouse cheats on another can they be divorced in the eyes of God. So, even abuse would not justify divorce. The issue is how adultery is used in the bible and it i...

Re: Miss Socialist Lite Snubbed by Obama

So, this is how thing typically work in most countries that have multiple parties: 40% are right, 40% are left and 20% are the "swing votes". Roughly. That is why you can go from a Majority left government for 8 years and then get a majority right ( or vice-versa). See, you can't, typically, change ...
