God and Gender

My apologies if I'm not too great a communicator in this kind of thing. I'll try to be clearer. God did indeed create mankind in his own image, but according to Genesis: And the Lord God said, "it isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him; a helper suited to his needs " Gen 2:1...

God and Gender

It seems that the horse is being put before the cart. God created man, so rather than God having male qualities, it would be truer to say man has god-like qualities. God created man in His own image. I don't mean anything silly about being omnipotent or being able to create things ex nihlo , but thi...

My testimony

Hi folks. I joined the message board a couple of days ago. This is my testimony: I was brought up as a Catholic, although my parents where both rather nominal, their only church attendance being Christmas and Easter.

self-sacrifice

A sacrifice to God has to be something worth sacrificing ie. given to God. If I give up, for instance, stealing or lying, is that really self-sacrifice? It seems to me that those things have to be dropped in the dirt where they belong when I come before God; God doesn't want them! But what about you...

natural v spiritual families

I have a friend who, after he announced that he had become a christian, was cut off from his family who where very anti-christ. In his case indeed, his spiritual family is more important than his natural family. This is seen in many cultures. Islam, for example. Muslim families will actually hold a ...

tithing

Paul says that you should give as your conscience leads you, and also that "nothing is forbidden, but not everything is beneficial", I suppose the converse is true, that nothing is compulsory, but some things are more righteous than others. if you begrudge God your money, you might as well keep it: ...
