Re: Denial of the Supernatural aspects of God and the demonic

It can be no accident that God did not choose to have any chick apostles! Even Judas' replacement was male. And the criteria for elders and pastors all refer to only males, and the pronoun references for them are all male gender ones: https://www.acts29.com/biblical-qualifications-of-a-pastor/ . It ...

Re: Denial of the Supernatural aspects of God and the demonic

Blessed: I don't know where to go to find a good church. Here are a few ideas on Church attendance and how to find a good church. And note, Scripture teaches the great importance of meeting regularly with other Believers in fellowship, worship, and endeavors He has in mind for each individual commu...

Re: I have returned!

Absolutely, Annette - God can really use your tough times as a witness around here - as when God shows up in our mess, we see His greatness (see what I did there :) ). But it's very true, you can help a lot of people by sharing what you've learned, what you've been through. We've learned a lot aroun...

Ah, Rick, but strawmen are easier to shoot than fish in a barrel, are they not?

Well, as long as they're in a barrel and not a bucket!

Re: Tucker Carlson threatened

The feds need to go after all such people - whether fascists or the anti-fada, whatever radicals, and no matter what group they are attacking. Back in the late '60s and early '70s, many radical bombings were carried out - and if we don't stop such radicals and their threats - we're gonna be right ba...

Re: Denial of the Supernatural aspects of God and the demonic

B.W., I totally agree with your assessment of the threat and ignorance of many in the church - but there needs to be a balanced view that doesn't keep us in fear as if we are helpless and have no defenses, or that elevates Satan and demons anything near the power of God or our ability to harness, th...

Re: Mid term USA Elections

Trump primarily got elected because of a weak choice of Republicans and because Hillary was unthinkable to so many moderates, independents and conservatives. But there is a massive generational and gender gap in which many people can't stand Trump's style, pettiness and arrogance. And so it's easy f...

Rick: I'm not convinced Trump will even run in 2020.
Wouldn't it be a shocker if he didn't - thus eliminating the Democrats' convenient boogeyman! But who could step up that would be electable?

Re: Denial of the Supernatural aspects of God and the demonic

Let me ask you a question, B.W. Knowing there is a demonic opposition behind the evil across the world is one thing. But why obsess over it as if it has a great power over you as a Christian? Because it does NOT! Unless you open yourself up to it by involving yourself in certain gateways. The demoni...

Re: Mid term USA Elections

OK, for Democrats, it's one thing to oppose Trump where they disagree. But if they only make their gain of the House to be utilized only to go after Trump, impeachment, etc., they will make a bad situation far worse, because the Republicans will only retaliate in kind. One of these days, one would h...

Polls: How Can They Be Accurate?

As so many people are screening or blocking calls, not picking up their phones if they don't recognize a number, as millions no longer own a landline, and very few willing to open their door to pollsters, I fail to see how, nowadays, any poll could be anywhere near accurate. A methodology is only go...

Re: Norman Geisler response to AIG / YEC / Ken Ham

BTW, I posted the above, as a church community group I'm leading has now wandered into this potentially flammable issue (of the time length of the Creation days), as we have begun discussing various aspects of the Creation. But I'm intentionally not going to allow us to get into that argument, preci...
