Sanctimony - to FL & 2012

Sorry FL i took ages to reply - i sorta stopped goin here... :P Interesting. hmm. may i ask - what denomination are you? I hear many claims. Yes, God changes us but only if we allow Him. If we are stubborn then no change happens. Then, God changing us means we allow Him to be changed. In a way we ca...

Re: 2012

Sanctimony god? what that? dont think i properly heard of that. Yes, we can never be good enough by ourselves, but still - shouldnt we try and be better??? I mean, we sin etc. but there should be a difference between someone's sinning very badly or when he becomes Christian. then he should be a bett...

Re: 2012

Re: 100,000$ pursued for a prayer!!!

Scary stuff really. But it also talks about his prayer being "different". Now only read the article quickly but still! it is crazy these things happening. Well let's just say the person who wanted to start his persecution for this is someone who doesnt love God, and so has to show his anger towards ...

Re: What are the top arguments atheists should NOT use?

Exactly! so the point is not "can you provide evidence" but rather "are you willing to believe". There are other things that cant be proven yet people are crazy in believing them... for example, people believe in astrology, ghosts, spirits, reincarnation yet these cannot be proven!! But one either c...

Re: Once Saved always saved?

OK so as far as Book of life is concerned one's name cannot be wiped out. Thing is, God already knows who is saved and who is not. Then it can be said that at our time of birth our name either is or is not in the Book. Moreovr, i still believe it is possible for devote christians to do things like t...

Re: What are the top arguments atheists should NOT use?

Yes that is right obsolete... however, i was not talking about there not being hell, just about the fact that there is no literal fire and that, however there's still suffering and that. I mean, whether we suffer with fire and thirst or psychological suffering only i dont know but apparently that ty...

Re: 2012

Re: Once Saved always saved?

Looks like we're losing OSAS here. Yes, there are different views to this, however, I'd say the 2 variants I believe in are the same but said differently. Either: a. By "believing" you mean you have a changed life, and you will never do a deadly sin in your life etc. However, as we do not know this ...

Re: Once Saved always saved?

"They are saying to believe in Christ , just as you state, but also understand that one also lives by what they believe. " Can you not see that you have two conditions? Where in John 3:16 are there two conditions? Where in John 3:16 are we told to live by faith? No where. We are told only to believ...

Re: 2012

hm ok, but the Mayans were not the only ones. Moreover, on gotquestions.org i read about end times and stuff like that. What are the seals and bowls and all that... says there is to be huge earthquake with hailstones - is not that expected to be the Nibiru crashing the Earth? That is predicted on 21...

Re: What are the top arguments atheists should NOT use?

Good point obsolete... then why i was told by people (including priest!) that it is NOT literal and it's STUPID to think there is actual fire and demons? Well i guess no-one knows everything forreal, nor do priests and we do have to make assumptions and use our own mind and understanding of the worl...

Re: Once Saved always saved?

A burning question, hopefully to be asked here :P Well, it goes back and forth for me... Since childhood, I been told that JC died for our sins. Didnt get that. Then there came confessions and all that. Could never grasp that really why Christians (Catholics) have to say their sins to a priest (huma...
