So the idea here was to have a little prayer experiment to determine whether or not the feeling I have gotten of peace after praying is just a placebo. This is not a definitive test but it is certainly a beginning. Right off the bat it should be stated that we won’t be praying for any specific item or event just guidance and peace.
So we’re going to try several different types of prayer. Any prayers you think I should try go ahead nad suggest it. I’ll be trying to get through as many as...
Jesus was a Jew teaching his followers. I have heard Jews refer to him as a Rabbi.
He said that he didn't come to destroy the (Mosaic) Law, but to fulfill it. (Matt 5:17-20)
Therefore, are Christians allowed to call ourselves Jews?
Conversation is being held on other threads about absolutes and objective rights and wrongs.
I say rape is inherently bad, not "a societal misdeed" but wrong.
Then I watch as atheists (in error) criticize the Bible for not condemning rape, when it most certainly does (as usual atheists point to the Bible and miss). If two fornicate in the Old Testament, they both receive capital punishment but if a woman cries for help while assaulted, only her rapist is punished . . . by death. Of course...
Hello, new to these forums, I joined so I can try to understand my beliefs and where they fit into the various religions, or indeed where they don't!
My apologies if this is in the wrong section.
So first I'll give you a quick run over my religious history. I've grown up in an Atheist family and my parents and grandparents generally frowned upon religion. They did however encourage a healthy interest in the outdoors and that's had a big influence on me.
My first genuine foray into...
This may sound quite shocking to the average Christian who has never really thought twice about it, but did you know that Paul is NOT an Apostle according to anyone but himself and himself through Luke, who was not a disciple of Christ (p) in the flesh and not an Apostle either so has no say.
But Luke actually gives us proof that Paul can not be a legitimate Apostle. Acts 1:21 sets the rules for being an Apostle in (metaphorical) stone, confirming that 12 is a necessary number and not...
Sorry stole this thread since I didn't think it appropriate to respond in the forum it was created.
Why do people hate Muslims
However I also felt I would like to express my feelings.
While I don't hate Muslims, I think people see it as a threat to western culture. I know there are secular Muslims. I've no problem with folks willing to accept secular rule. It works. It's allowed folks from different cultures to live and work together.
That being said, I personally feel I should not have...
This is pretty much how science sees the taxonomy of various cats.
Various species having evolved from those that gave rise to other evolved species.
This is how Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis sees it
No lions and tigers were on Noah’s Ark. Instead, God brought one pair of every “kind.”
At least 38 living (shown here) and 36 extinct cats descended from this original pair!.
According to AiG here all species of cats came from a single pair which gave birth to lions,...
"Jehovah's Witnesses are an international association of Christians who have been confronted with the issue of compulsory military service in many lands.
In the past, the Congress of the United States has provided exemption to registrants who entertain sincerely-held, religious objections to military service. Jehovah's Witnesses are conscientiously opposed to war and to their participation in such in any form whatsoever. For this reason they inform officials of the government that...
Unless they know they have sinned, they are not guilty.
From the reading at mass today:
Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.
39 Jesus said,“For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
40 Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What? Are we blind too?”
41 Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin
Also, don't forget that Jesus forgave those who crucified...
