Re: 1 Corinthians 8 through 10, eating meat sacrificed to id

I think your question is answered earlier in chapter 8: "8But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. 9Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if anyone with a weak conscience se...

Re: Video Game Talk

I remember it being fun, some of it was frustrating though! But yeah.... Ravenholm..... could you imagine what it would be like to be a zombie? With the initial agony of the head crab latching on to you..... Yeah, I'm not a good puzzle solver, so quite a bit of it was frustrating to me. And being a...

Re: circadian rhythms

I'm not really a night owl because I usually don't like to stay up past midnight, but I'm definitely not a morning person either. If I have to work the next day, I usually go to bed between 10:30 and 11. On weekends I try to stay up as long as I can, which usually ends up being between 11 and 12. I ...

Re: Video Game Talk

Hi Zak. I play a lot of games. Not PC games so much because all I have is my laptop and its specs aren't that great. Mostly I play on my xbox 360. If I play a PC game it's probably an RTS like Sins of a Solar Empire, Star Wars: Empire at War, Age of Empires, and Starcraft. (just noticed most of thos...

Re: If you have to ask....

Then COD Modern Warfare 2 came out..you may have heard the controversy. One scene you are an undercover operative in a Chechen terrorist organization, you enter a Russian airport full of civilians , and are supposed to kill them. I couldn't do it. It felt wrong, and this is just virtual. So I walke...

Re: what do you think of gays? [poll]

All this reminds me of something C.S. Lewis wrote. It's the chapter on psychoanalysis in Mere Christianity. I think it really applies here. He wrote: When a man makes a moral choice two things are involved. One is the act of choosing. The other is the various feelings, impulses and so on which his p...

Re: A few general questions about the end times

Will God destroy the universe along with the earth or just the earth? Just the earth.. Why just the earth? I thought the universe was made for the earth, so what would be the point of the universe without the earth? Revelation 21:1 says there will be "a new heaven and a new earth, for the first hea...

Re: Day 4 or day 1 of creation of the sun ?

This question comes up quite a bit around here. First of all, did you read anything else on that page? These are all quotes from the link you posted: "For example, the first rule of the scientific method is to establish the initial conditions, or the frame of reference. Genesis 1:2 clearly states th...

Re: Children of God are Born Again with Eternal Life

Ok, so you know of a lot of cases like that. Well I don't, but then again I don't know a lot of people anyway. I guess it's like I said, this is too far over my head. I do enjoy reading it though.

Re: Children of God are Born Again with Eternal Life

If someone believes and secures himself eternal life, lives a pious life, displays the fruits of the Spirit, and so on. Then one day and for whatever reason he stops believing, blasphemes the Holy Spirit, goes on a stealing and murdering spree. According to what you've said before, this man was nev...

Re: Atheist argument that is causing my friend to doubt...

As Aquinas pointed out a long time ago, the existence of God is self-evident to those with the proper training. It is not self-evident to those who are uneducated. Hi Jac. Can you show me where Aquinas says this? I'm not doubting you, I just want to read the reference for my own use. Thanks in adva...

Re: 191

Forgive me if this is in the wrong subforum, or a bit superstitious, or paranoid, but I keep seeing the number 191 again and again, and it's a rather odd, unusual number. 191 - There are two 1's in the three number sequence; 2 and 3 make 23!
