For the confused, this thread will provide an ultimate guide to all Hindu deities. Asking other Hindus to join in. Keep explanations simple and colorful if possible.
I will start of with a nice schematic of some of the major Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism. Feel free to ask questions.
But everything is a manifestation of Brahman which is present as the inner Self of all beings and whose personification are the great Gods. Brahman is symbolized by the word Aum as below,
So, originally Angels had free will because the third of them were allowed to Rebel and Fall Away.
At what point did the good angels lose Free Will and become essentially robots that never disobey?
I firmly believe that the fall of the Angels was part of God's plan, if such a story is at all true. To say otherwise, is to suggest that God is not omnipotent.
God knew it well in advance before he ever created an angel if the angel was going to rebel against him or be faithful to him. If he...
So in Christendom essentially, all things are forgivable. and it is Your job as a Christian to convert people as so they can escape the firey brimstony damnation that is Hell. *besides the fact if most scientists went to Hell it probably has air conditioning by now*
So... Just a quick question.
Why have none of you had the humility the decency the Heart. and soul. to forgive the one Sinner who needed it most? Satan?
I Don't see anyone praying for his forgiveness. and if your sorry self...
(Question directed towards Christians)
The Devil. Bored out of his mind and a bit tired off all the news conflict (even Satan can get tired of all the drama on repeat) offers you a deal. (no he does not want your soul)
your devout and holy and such Good old honest Christian going to church every Sunday and constantly praying.
the Deal itself only has a condition that you drop worship and symbols you live as nonsecular and non-religious.
in exchange. Satan gives you the Power and...
This question is for Christians. It was brought to my attention that some Christians don't believe God wanted Christ to be crucified.
I just don't know how a person could make the argument that God didn't want it.
Didn't Jesus make it clear that that was part of his Ministry to be a sacrificial lamb and suffer and die for sin to be atoned? When it was time for him to die, he said "now has the time come for the son of man to be glorified". He spoke about it like it was a good thing. In...
I would think if I truely didn't believe in God there wouldn't be any room in all of my awareness and understanding for God and anytime I bumped up against that concept I'd have to go, What?
First I'd ask myself if there was anything missing in my life and if the answer was no then that would be it.
I've had so many threads hijacked by militants (both sides, mind you) to this cause and looking through the threads you will find the same behavior.
So I question, why would it be important...
So I try to read some of the Bible every day. Today I opened up to
2 Kings 2
23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” 24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
That just seems ridiculous to me. 42 children lose their...
I have often wondered what life would have been for me if I had a lawyer advise me of my rights before I began considering my first thought but then I would have had to already begin to believe in those rights to listen to counsel.
Our rights are violated from day one, society (religion is but a part) demands under the guise of promises that we fall in line or there will be consequences. Coercion by any other name is still coercion. And we get use to it, to the point where we only react to...
