Re: Does God have Free Will?

Have you read Mere Christianity, or any of Lee Strobel's works? I don't believe that I've read any of Lee Strobel's books. I have a copy of Josh McDowell's book: More Than A Carpenter. I have no idea if those two authors have anything in common at all, it just seemed like a good thing to write at t...

Re: The Most Important Rule??

If we all waited until we were totally sinless to help others not sin, then we'd be waiting forever. There would be no Chrisianity. It's true that Jesus talked of taking the 2x4 out of your own eye before removing our brother's sawdust from his eye. And we've been saying that - to be self-reflectiv...

Re: Does God have Free Will?

I wish I could remember the verse or verses where Paul writes of this, about the creation questioning the creator, but I can't, and it's too late today for me to be doing a lot of digging. I don't think I'm taking the bible or God blindly. I had doubts about God for a long time - I didn't become a ...

Re: Does God have Free Will?

Do you think that if God really does exist and that He created everything, that He would then be considered more intelligent and creative and powerful than we are? If these things were true, and He created us, then should we believe what He tells us? Should we believe that God did in fact reveal kn...

Re: Does God have Free Will?

You keep saying that God is damning people, and a huge percent of them, I might add. y:-? It's our choice whether we want to be with Him or not. He doesn't force us either way. You keep blaming him for actions that are our own responsibility. You're making God a scape goat. Whether one is saved or ...

Re: Does God have Free Will?

It sounds like you're going with the premise that humans are all God's children, but they're not. We become His children when we're adopted into His family and that way we inherit the kingdom. Humans in general are God's creation, not His children. God has free will - how could he not? But He also ...

Re: The Most Important Rule??

Those sins you mentioned don't make the people "evil". Zoe is right in that we are called to be discerning. If people never sinned, then why would they need a savior? If we never perceived them as sinning, why would we be motivated to tell them of Christ's sacrifice and love? There would be no need...

That is funny (to me - some people might not like it). Lol, there probably wouldn't be any humans if that happened.

Re: Bible stories literal or symbolic?

Well, this is a very interesting board and I'll have to read it in detail soon. I didn't answer the poll since much of the bible is literal, but much is not (symbolic, literary, etc.). Anyway, I have a different story that bugs me when I try to take it literally, and that's the story of Samson. May...

Re: Narnia

@chizum, I could see that happening. Lewis' books are the classics in Children's fantasy though. There have been so many since then with the genre just getting bigger and bigger, it seems. I'd read them again sometime and then see what you think.

Re: Calvary Chapels YEC ?

. . . the following excerpt from an article of the “Word for Today quarterly 2008” which really was a pleasant surprise for me because of my association with Calvary. It is an article written by pastor Chuck Smith entitled “In The Beginning”, I will only post the concluding thought of the article...

Re: Narnia

I love the Narnia books, and I like The Magician's Nephew the most. This is for a few reasons. I absolutely love the creation section, with it's descriptions and the various people's responses. This book is funny, has a lot of variety in it, a lot of action, and a lot of real emotion. If done right...
