Re: Benny Hinn

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLH7LHrYpLs&feature=player_embedded A slightly comical, but very disturbing depiction of what goes on in the church of Benny Hinn. I put this in the "Aberrant Christianity" because what's going on in the video seems pretty aberrant to me. Its a strong appeal to emotio...

Id like to share what i REALLY liked about being 'an Atheist

What i found appealing about atheism , at the time : 1. Nearly all my friends were atheists so i had much commaraderie . 2. If there were no binding absolute moral laws to live by, then it offered great freedom of lifestyle choices (which i capitalized on) . 3. No one was in ultimate authority over ...

Re: Needing some apologetics resources for a friend

Hi everyone, I was curious as to if any of you all know about any resources for any apologetics groups or organizations that address the topic of how believers should live? Also, if anyone can't find any such resource for an apologetics perspective I figure any reputable standard ministry will work...

Re: Masturbation Inquiry

What about masturbation for women? I think that when most women masturbate, they are generally focused on the physical sensation without really needing to even imagine having sex or thinking about naked men. Being much less visually-oriented, I think that it is fairly easy for a woman to masturbate...

What do you all think? I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

How i would respond to a person holding to the things in this chart, is : Why are you morality-phobic ?

Re: Is GOD making it impossible for some to believe?? =,<

I'm concerned about something. Does GOD make it impossible for some people to believe? I read something about Jesus speaking in parables So that some could not understand? And something about GOD hardening people's hearts? Why? I don't understand and I'm concerned. =,< God has made it painfully EAS...

Re: Why is good good and evil evil?

Can God absolutely decide what is good and what is evil? If not why not? If so, does He ever change things like that to suit his purposes? Then does He change them right back afterwards? There were laws the King of Persia could not change in the Book of Esther IIRC. But the KIng changed one anyhow....

Re: What are your denominations? and a question I have...

Church are people. Does it matter whether I go to a building where I can talk to people or whether I talk to people via emails or chat or forum? As Christians we owe Scripture to be our final court of arbitration and ultimate truth, and it says dont forsake the GATHERING of yourself (in person) . O...
