Re: Christianity and Sikhism

It is interesting to know that Christianity and Sikhism both hold similarities, and differences. On one side, Christians believe that Christ was and is the incarnation of God, and on the other side, Sikhs believe that Guru Nanak is the incarnation of God. If there is only one true absolute religion...

Re: Argument from bad design. Very, very bad design!

Just a response to the example of the "bad design". Wouldn't two tubes, one for breathing and one for eating, require two mouths? Wouldn't that also require a bigger head and neck? What we have now seems efficient. When I read the OP I automatically thought about German engineering. I work with alo...

Re: Shroud of Turin

It does seem that the Cloth was meant for such a technological time as this , perhaps because in this day and age the populace places such a large amount of trust in our many sciences. Once the cloth is scientifically authentized (entirely), the only excuse for not believing will be of an apriori-p...

Re: Christianity and Sikhism

This is what I was told. Jesus came from heaven to earth. Died, resurrected then went back to heaven. Other religions. Man was born, died, then went to heaven. Not all men go to heaven, sadly. Only those who have gotton their many sins erased by the shed blood of Jesus...the only one who was perfec...

Re: Shroud of Turin

I know this has been going back and forth a little, but the latest information on the shroud is that it is, well, inexplicable. There has been no scientific explanation for how the image got on the shroud, and lately, a 3-d map of the shroud was also made, something that cannot be replicated from a...

Re: Christianity and Sikhism

What makes Christianity stand out from religions like Sikhism? Sikhism reminds me of the Greek Sotic's and it is a very self-works-denail-equal-salvation approach as well. In other wrds, it relies on the human self rather than Jesus Christ as the gospel teaches... - - - In fact, the Christian Faith...

Re: Birth Control

CallmeDave, just wondering, do you see the irony in one sense of advising to go to the Bible and not the Catholic Church when it was the Catholic Church that established the canon of the Bible you use? Hello. No, i dont see any irony because it wasnt 'the RCC that established the canon' as is often...

Re: Birth Control

Dave, I didn't realize that some "birth control" pills, and iud's were abortaficients either, until recently. Here's just a few sites I got from googling "iud abortafacient" : http://www.physiciansforlife.org/content/view/182/36/ http://www.mydomesticchurch.com/2006/01/iud-controversy.html http://w...

Re: Sin

Without sin we do not learn........any thoughts? I prefer : Without the consequences from sin, we would tend to keep on committing them . Its a tough way to learn , and its far better to just trust God when he defines in scripture the acts of the sinful nature (ie: Galatians chapt. 5) so we dont ha...

Re: Birth Control

, so such things as a condom, IUD, pill, etc....are allowable and effective in preventing this from occuring. Dave, FYI, some iud's are abortafacients. Thats news to me. From an online site called WebMD : 'Both types of IUD prevent fertilization of the egg by damaging or killing sperm. The IUD also...
