Re: Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) Prayer Requests

Hi Grey, I was not aware you are from the Philippines and yes, we pray and pray to seek somehow to get aid there too those there. By this time, it must be getting very bad. Let's not forget those in the storms path... - - - Thank you for the prayers, B.W. I am partly at fault for not revealing whic...

Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) Prayer Requests

It's been half a week since Yolanda (or Haiyan as it's internationally called) struck my country. It was disastrous to say the least and to think I WAS there a few days just before the storm began. When I saw some videos, I was devastated because I knew that area; I've travelled there. In fact, I wo...

Re: Out of the Debate (Interviewing Non-belief)

Well, your statement is much stronger than mine. I'm not sure I can agree with it as written. At the end of my life, I may have failed to have made a significant impact, but I'm not going to kill myself, because I believe I'm not making a significant impact. I hope that makes sense. I believe I wou...

Re: Out of the Debate (Interviewing Non-belief)

Quite easily, to be honest. Sorry for posing that vague first question. LOL Here's a few more: How do you define God? What were the steps you took to come to the conclusion that the Being does not exist or that the evidence points that such a Being does not exist? Does that mean that you disbelieve...

Re: "Biblical" rains trigger flooding - 9/2013

I still find it odd that the counties that supported legalizing Pot and supported Obama during the 2012 election are the hardest hit areas. This in my opinion more than coincidence... http://www.politico.com/2012-election/map/#/President/2012/ God hates being mocked and several counties have certai...

Re: The Pope on Atheists

I really don't have a problem with what the we are told the pope said there. It seems very orthodox to me too. I actually like something in the article if it is true: The unprecedented gesture came as his incoming number two, the Vatican's newly-nominated secretary of state, said that the rule that...

Re: Agnostic(Atheist) looking for good discussion

Hey there! Yes, I am in IT. I used to be a programmer, but now I am a Storage Administrator. It is nice to know there are some other IT people around here. Hello there and welcome to the forums, Lunalle! Indeed, it seems this place is riddled with IT people. :) I am still a university student thoug...

Out of the Debate (Interviewing Non-belief)

I noticed that most of the other threads are for debating. So here I shall ask the atheists: How do you live your lives without God (or gods)? What do you hold of most value that without it, you'd rather be dead? What about your basis for morality (which is very much rooted in the two previous quest...

Re: Listen to young atheists

Well the Parable of the Sower suggests that Jesus places great value in getting more people to hear the message - "19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. ...

Re: Forcing Evangelism

The thing is that your pastor is right although probably could have been more helpful in his approach. We do all need to evangelise more. I am just as guilty because I lack courage and if you try and force your beliefs on people it is frowned upon in modern day society. But we are reminded that we ...

Re: Forcing Evangelism

Lead by example. Be ready to give accounting of your faith. Those are the things I live by. Should I be more aggressive in my proclamation of the Gospel? Perhaps, I mean, if we believe the Gospel (Christ) is the only way to salvation then to NOT proclaim it is, well, BAD ! But aggressive proclamati...

Re: Forcing Evangelism

It's just my opinion, but if some "church leader" tried to force me to do anything, my first reaction would be to force my way out of that church without looking back. A church that my wife used to go to, had a youth leader who "forced" the youth to do door to door "evangelizing". It's one thing I ...

Forcing Evangelism

A little background on myself. A church leader came to me and said (rather forcefully beneath a gentle demeanor) that I should evangelize more, get more people to know Christ, get out of my comfort zone. The fact of the matter is: I am. I do my best but ultimately I know that God does the converting...
