Re: Understanding the Trinity

Points 21 - 26, yes, in Bible. #'s 29 and 30.

The Nicene Creed -- everything Except lines 3 and 4 from the bottom. About the apostolic church and baptism.

There have been Scripture passages given prior to now.

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

So -- creation as stated in Genesis isn't really viable because all human physiology doesn't always work to the precision that some of us feel it Should. So therefore, there Must be some amount of evolution involved? Is that what you're suggesting? And you're comparing people with chimps because we'...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

"a Theistic denier of the truth of the Bible' comes real close to making me sick. And, yes, Everyone has freedom to speak their own mind. But there should Also be respectfulness for the beliefs of others, no matter How crazy they sound. Each person's beliefs are important to them as a person. And, ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Audie and I HAVE had 'conversation' on various subjects that have - pretty much - gotten No Where. Pretty much because from Her perspective - she has a great deal of scientific knowledge and feels that those who disagree with her are simply uninformed in various fields of science. She had accused me...

Re: Transitional / intermediate

I Do believe that I've shared Genesis -- God's creation process -- letting Scripture speak for itself. "A single act of spontaneous creation about 15 billion years ago." Then Who set that 'single act of spontaneous creation' in motion. And What allowed the single-cell to start multiplying. And Some ...

Re: Transitional / intermediate

I'm asking questions -- discussing -- you're beginning to sound like Audie. The 'higher power' being God and 'create' -- making from nothing except that which God created Himself. Or speaking into existence. Genesis 1. Well, Audie likes to get definitions clear, like me. We don't want to fall into ...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

Only one comment -- does God want us to be 'happy'? Yes or to be growing, maturing Christians. Yes Because sometimes Our idea of being 'happy' -- involves things that aren't in our best interest. Yes. And such "happiness" isn't real happiness, is it? Thanks for agreeing about the common sense. :) Y...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

I don't know how to underline, etc. but want to comment on "God loves being in interaction with His creation....." That is made known to us in Philippians 4:6,7, 8,9, 13. It is indeed, and I believe (by Faith) it's true. However, from a Scientific perspective we may ask whether there is any non-bib...

Re: Transitional / intermediate

Well, of course I'm around, as you can see from the other (Problems with Evolution) thread, but they seem to have coalesced and wandered arm in arm off down a different path of discussion entirely. This one began out of a certain frustration by Audie, attempting to deal with the creationist view th...

Re: Why was Ishmael circumcised?

I've decided Not to have any more conversations with you. remember, you can run, but you cannot hide, ok? don't imagine that learning truth or changing your mind is going to be some pleasant thing that the rest of the world will joyfully embrace and support you in, ok. The Book will tell you that k...

Re: RTB: Serious Problems with Evolution

It's certainly a sensible question. However, I'm not sure I know how to characterise a form of existence in the absence of time, even to myself! Obviously the concept of a holiday, in the sense of not interfering with something going on somewhere else, wouldn't make any sense before the start of ti...
