Re: A prayer for stength

Annette, Young lady, never fear doubts. They come and go for everyone at some point in their religious upbringing. You want a good example OF SERIOUS doubts ? How would you like to be a person who met Jesus before you were even born ... oh yeah, you recognized Him because you leapt in your mother's ...

Re: Sounded like Jesus returned around the 1st century?

P aulS said : As for terms such as "the lord is at hand, the kingdom of God is here, the end is at hand, etc..." these are not statements of TIME as in chronological time events, but statements of eventuality. I agree with Paul's comment whole heartily ... Look, this is the way it's been explained t...

Re: Did Science Kill God?

Katabole, Thanks so much for the video. How truly refreshing to gain perspective from someone who is not only preeminently qualified on the topic, but on so many topics so universally tied to it. Really learned quite a lot in a very short time. I came to this site a few years ago after typing in bro...

Re: Books ( or anything else) that changed our lives

Annette :wave: thanks, I'm jeffrey :-D here is a brief outlook of Poem. http://valtorta.org/the_poem__freeonlinereadingoffer.asp. It is very intimately involved in the personalities surrounding Jesus in His time on earth. This is just a sampling, but you'll get an immediate sense if it's something y...

Re: Books ( or anything else) that changed our lives

Hey Stell, I think you're reading the NT, as I saw in another post, very wise. IMO establishing a comfort zone with the understanding of the NT, questioning readings that are unclear, absorbing all you can from the Word of God is so much more important than any auxiliary readings both to your intima...

Re: Books ( or anything else) that changed our lives

Well, I'm pretty new here and am unaware of anyone's practicing faith. It really is of no concern, as it to seems to me all faiths who hold to true Christian tenets are truly Christian. I'm Catholic, and a true believer that you are too, if you believe the Creed. Catholic is, in my view, nothing oth...

Re: What are your views!

1) What shall happen to heathens like me who openly reject the Christian God with access to full knowledge of his mercy, forgiveness (which I suppose coincides with his mercy), and grace (again seems redundant to state, but why not right?). Christ seems to be pretty open and shut on the issue (I.E ...

Re: Where did our Big Bang come from?

There is no proof for the existence of non-existence, so existence has always existed.

Re: Shroud of Turin

Hey kids... Well, I have been enamored by the Shroud for some time and the more I get to know the more I am intrigued, surprised and (especially lately) fulfilled. I have a background in old school photography and am perhaps overly sensitive to the uses of light ( fstops, time etc.. ). One of the ve...

Re: Shroud of Turin

Creation wrote Why do you assume, that the image is that of Jesus? Note this is a different question, than, is the shroud real, which is a pretty dumb question, because it is clearly a cloth with an image. However no one knows who's image it is, which is why the Catholic Church will not say that th...

Hello folks. Wanted to introduce myself, say hey and become a part of the experience here with you. It is somewhat silly that I have come to this site dozens of times after finding it almost 3 years ago, specifically to help answer questions I have and help support views of Christian faith.
