Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

Believers seek God. They admire Jesus and want to be like him and please him. So God has a personal interest. He wants to be admired and pleased... Nonbelievers do not seek God and do not want to please him. Now imagine what would God have to do with a nonbeliever to get him into heaven. He would h...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

@1lover137

And we reach the same point we left from. Why can't God do the same for non-believers?

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

On the question of why evil exists if the Creator is good, I don't think there is a problem. Moral Law comes from God, and naturally where there is a moral law there is the possibility of going against it and doing evil. Evil isn't a "thing" in the way that good is; it's just what isn't good. God d...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

***I will be patient and waiting for your answer in regards to where evil comes from. So, if God took all believers to Heaven and left the Earth, there would be quite a hell on the Earth. I wouldn't go that far :)) Just saying... You say God could create more Heavens. Well, there will be only one He...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

Have you actually studied what the earliest Christians were taught by the apostles? My guess is no you haven't. God is love itself, God is justice itself, God is mercy itself. He is the objective moral law giver, and without him it becomes one persons definition of good and one persons definition o...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

And contrary to what you say, God doesn't send anyone to hell. They send themselves. Hell is the spiritual state that is lacking Gods presence. I will just quote this because the rest of your answer is mainly about personal beliefs and I don't want to have a discussion about my beliefs and your bel...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

Afterall, you can't claim truth and then claim that contradictory views are also just another path to truth. But you can claim that both you and your "opponent" do not have the ultimate answer and work together towards maybe obtaining that. With all the love that goes round and round I see that whe...

Re: Open Science Discussin about GOD's Existence

1***** I'm sure we've all had the "If I were God...' moments. But what perspective do we have compared to an eternal, transcendent, and omniscient being. Very little if any. The reason we hate is self centeredness. Self is the source of all evil. Are people born racist? No, it is a learned behavior...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

This is evidenced by how foreign this is to your mind, and by how you repeatedly appeal to OM while denying it in the same breath. You can type what ever you want, but I know that in your inner man you know this is true. God does truly desire for you to repent. That is abandon a futile way of think...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

Right and wrong based on objective standards that are static, and unchanging, and undefined by man. There are no moral standards that weren't defined by man. You need standards to determine that something is right or wrong, and well, subjective values just means that another culture's subjective va...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

The question is, does a natural desire justify behavior and does that behavior deserve special priveleges? Or, is it OK to discriminate against certain behaviors even if they are "natural?" So heterosexual couples can adopt children, but gay couples can't. Who has the privileges here? For example, ...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

Bryan, You appeal to OM all the time without ralizing it. You do it several times in this thread. You are saying that YOUR opinion on morals is RIGHT and that we are WRONG for thinking otherwise. Of course I would ask right and wrong according to what? Not sure what breathing oxygen has to do with ...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

@jlay 1) You keep saying I am a relativist and that I change things to suit my view. What I am telling you is to open your eyes and look at the world around you. The world changed and it changes everyday. I am not saying things for the sake of suiting me. 2)I am not forcing any kind of moral values ...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

Bryan, the fact that you don't agree with a position, shouldn't be a reason that you can't understand the reasoning of others who don't hold your views. The fact that you can't is a huge problem in discussing anything with you on this forum. And since you are a moral relativist you have major probl...

Re: Pastor’s Speech Against Equal Rights (surprise ending)

Bull. They took a stand on a moral issue. Shame on you for even inferring that taking a moral stand is simply prejudice. What moral issue? The problem discussed here is about gay couples and parenthood. I didn't see any chapter in the bible about this. What moral stand are they taking? Even if you ...
