The moment one believes God wants us to be responsible in His creation, then complacency goes out the door.... Only under Christ's kingdom will peace reign and therefore pacifism be right, but in our current world where moral atrocities are allowed to be committed, the complacency of pacifism negle...

K, now that we seem to have finally resolved what Judah did or didn't mean :D ....maybe you would be so good as to satisfy my curiosity and explain what you did or didn't mean wrt the following: I am not a strict pacifist, and in fact believe such a position is morally wrong for I believe it results...

Given the attention that Pope Benedict recently recieved by Muslim clerics regarding his lecture to a large gathering of theological students, I am wondering just how long before Franklin Graham is also "taken to task" for his views on Islam and if there will be persuasion applied for him to recant...

you are right....Iraq enters the picture through the 5 points I listed.

BTW, what's with the handle "Canuckster"? Are you one?

Just to be clear, by saying it was a "loaded question" I meant the logical fallacy of it being complex (smuggling two questions within one). For example, either Judah "supports Graham and thereby supports the use of nuclear weapons on Iraq" or does not. oh, in that case your objection is no longer ...

Nowhere was I referring to any comment on Iraq and yet it semed you thought so - twice. my reasoning is set out in the five points in the post to K If you want me to clarify what I mean, please just say "Judah, would you mind clarifying what you mean?" :) didn't want a blanket clarification....just...

Life is life :) It is good to still see you around this board. thanks I have read the linked transcript , and nowhere did I find Graham saying anything about these weapons being used on any particular nation such as Iraq or Afghanistan. So I see your original response to Judah's comments, which sup...

...Crikey, ttoews! I am not talking about his comments about Iraq.
relax Judah....you seem a bit defensive....all I have done is to ask for you to clarify what you meant (b/c I think you may have been jumping to conclusions)

Many believed the use of nuclear weapons might need to be an option 72 hours after 9/11 (the date of the comment was 9/14). Franklin's opinion in that regard is not particularly unusual not did it carry any weight. so then years later Franklin should have no problem saying that he was caught up in ...

Hey K, how's life? Now given my skepticism, I see this pamphlet is likely very misleading itself. For it says, "Reverend Franklin Graham responded by calling for the US to use nuclear weapons on Afghanistan" quoting: "I think we're going to have to use every...hellish weapon in our inventory .... th...

Franklin Graham has no reason to apologize to Muslims for his views expressed on how he views Islam. In that respect, the protestors are contaminating their Christianity with the doctrine of postmodernism. This is what I am talking about and NOT about nuclear weapons and the war in Iraq. I referred...

....But back to Franklin Graham and this protest against him... I believe this group of people have a rather one-eyed view of what is in their Bibles and this distortion affects their belief and behaviour. They have contaminated their Christianity with the doctrine of postmodernism. so then, we as ...

And I would say that you are using human reasoning and making a judgement of God when you say that He would have to be a sadist to leave people in hell for all eternity. of course I am using human reasoning....it is unavoidable.

Re: Is eternal death eternal punishment?

hey Judah, (sounds like a beatles tune) If annihilation is to be regarded as a punishment, then am I right in thinking that it is being regarded as a lesser punishment than full awareness of the torment of hell? I would say that it is a lesser punishment than eternal torment in hell. Please keep in ...
