Are we really chosen?

I am not going to explain my personal position on this thread. instead I want to hear your viewpoints just as a matter of curiosity. As followers and children of God, are we chosen by Him as the apostle Paul says? or rather did we choose God completely of our own free will or is there a compromise t...

Re: Is it a good idea to register on an atheist forum?

I thought about doing this exact same thing before. All of the reasons which have been given already are more than reason enough not to join an atheist forum. For me personally, it was a case of discerning what was the most wise thing for me to do. In other words, would I be more of an influence on ...

Re: The Pope on Atheists

Forgive me if I am wrong, is he saying that atheists and agnostics can still enter into heaven after rejecting the Gospel as long as they live morally and according to their consciences? Please tell me that he didn't say that!

It'll be interesting to see how you view his ministry after some more research :) however I cannot argue with the man's life and testimony!

Re: Why wont God answer me?

I've been praying for about 2 months now that He reveals himself to me. A sign, a feeling, a vision.. anything.. I asked to talk in tongues, and be His messenger.. I asked for the holy spirit.. but it seems like it's going down hill.. I don't like this feeling of being separated from God. If He's r...

Re: call on atheists

What makes you think that atheists haven't considered their position? I find that when religious people of any description stop me in the street they do so on the assumption that the only reason I don't share their beliefs is that I've not previously considered them. This becomes difficult when it ...

Re: Using the Lord's Name in Vain

Benny Hinn would be a classic example I suppose of someone who takes God's name in vain. Uses God's name to his own advantage. False prophets are others who were to be put to death if they wrongly spoke on behalf of God because they could lead Israel astray. I don't think that you, or myself are in...

Re: Why did God need to take 13.7 billion years?

Mallz I know what you are talking about but god could have done it all without taking this long to do, is this so we may learn from his work better? I could take that statement and apply it to anything. For example, why does God not heal every Christian who prays for miraculous healing? You could v...

Hello again

Maybe a few of you will remember me! Haha! Decided to get stuck in once again, I left a while back because I felt God taking me on a personal journey of maturity and becoming a man of God which had to result in leaving my passion for apologetics to one side! I can thankfully say that God is good and...

Re: Prayer

Hi guys I've been quite absent recently from the forum because I've been spending some more alone time with God for various reasons. If you could all pray for a clarity and guidance from God in my life right now, I feel in these past days that He has revealed His calling upon my life to me but agai...
