Re: What does it mean to be good?

I never said who is good, I said what does goodness mean. I dont know where you possibly see that I asked who is good, but If english isnt your first language then maybe there is a language barrier issue that is causing your confusion. The bible says only God is good. The question is what does goodn...

Re: What does it mean to be good?

well yes, that is mostly what I believe. So for me to understand why christians consider God to be good, its important to understand what goodness means to you in the first place. What qualities and characteristics make someone good?

What was God's plan

It seems to me that according to the bible and christian logic, God purposely created a world where he knew humans would suffer tremendous evil and suffering. God created the world, created Adam and Eve knowing full well they would sin, and knew it would bring evil into the world because...thats wha...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

It is important to understand the CONTEXT of slavery in the OT. Slavery as we typically think of it ( people being kidnapped and so forth) is explicitly wrong: Exodus 21:16 states, “Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be put to death, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper’s pos...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

fact: if the bible is the word of God and God is good, he would have explicitly stated somewhere in the bible that the institution of slavery was evil. People keep saying that it was different in those times but we all know that if you have a child and let them get away with little things, they will...

Re: Slavery in the Bible

Outlaw, remember it was mankind who was making use of slaves. God just gave the rules by which they should be treated. So basically slavery is okay as long as you follow certain guidelines laid down by God. This is what you are saying right? Its not wrong to own people as slaves, its just wrong to ...
