Jesus did claim He was God and many of the passages have been alluded to in this thread. For example: Matthew 9: 1-8 tells the story of the scribes challenging Jesus because Jesus forgave a man's sins. Their argument was that only God can forgive sins. Jesus went on to heal the man. In other words, ...

One condition of agape's unconditional condition is entwined with justice and righteousness. Without consequences, justice loses justice and righteousness becomes irreverent. Comments? My comment is that I agree with this. But I don't see that justice requires eternal torment. I do see that righteo...

Sadly, Hell has become irrelevant in most churches who preach a more "seeker sensitive" gospel. Many professing Christians deny Hell altogether, and others water it down. Now for a little "Hellfire and Brimstone" preaching... Preaching on Hell is necessary for two reasons. For Christians - Teaching...

So much so, that the existence of Hell is nearly all but forgotten, or simply glossed over, as one writer put it, “Hell has become air conditioned” in our modern world view. Also, the surging tide of NDE (Near Death Exper...

Re: Trying to commit suicide

I'm trying so hard to keep from ending my life. The only reason I am not doing it or hurting others is because of my faith. I'm tired of godless idiots trying to accuse religion of being evil, but they have no idea that they'd be six feet under by now if it wasn't for my faith. I'm tired of living ...

This same exact thing is happening to me, probably because of what I did on Halloween. I went door-to-door, refused the candy, and gave out gifts and said that God loved them. Now, I believe Satan is furious at me and trying to shake my faith. I can compare it to a lion that has bitten my leg and w...

Trinity Analogy

The doctrine of the Trinity seems to be the topic of choice here. Since I am new here, I'll jump right in and hope to clarify the issue as simply as I can. I have trouble with why the doctrine of the trinity is so hard to understand or comprehend. After all, Romans 1: 20 sums up where to find the cl...
