Some Jews claim that God does not need a sin offering, and that the sin offerings God required in the OT are not important. According to them, it is enough just to ask for forgiveness, but when David sinned, his infant had to die, David asked for forgiveness and fasted, he suffered a lot, but God killed his infant anyway. How do these Jews explain this? Why didn't God forgive him in such a way that his infant did not have to die? In Job we see the sin offerings, when the three friends lied...
Lets discuss talking sex with minors of age at church or in the home.
In my opinion sex ed is perfectly fine. It's their right to know about sex.
However, a fellow poster recently wrote: "Even at 10 I was already told about when I marry my body would be my husband's and I would never be allowed to say no."
Telling minors of age about what they purportedly have to do later in their sex life... is harrassment, as I see it. Minors of age are not able to make up their minds about these kinds...
Is it possible for a believer to stop asking questions to others, and only focus on his/her own spiritual questions?
If this person do stop asking questions about others belief or faith, but only focus inward, will this person be seen as an outsider?
Funny thing, I was listening to sort of philosophical argument about religion the other day, and suddenly heard music that I have know just about literally all of my life:
Jesus loves me, this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak, but He is strong
Like many of you, I was taught this when I was very little, and the words and music are indelibly imprinted on my mind. (This is not all that strange -- as someone who loves to act and sing, I have a fabulous...
What do people think of Annihilationism?
Of God simply annihilating those he doesn't approve of, as opposed to sending them to Hell?
Of extinguishing them for all eternity, rather than torturing them for all eternity?
I think it is more in keeping with the notion of a compassionate and merciful God
And (coming at it from a Christian perspective which I know others here won't share) there is a biblical basis for it:
Annihilationism - Wikipedia
Group selection: I'd like members, who don't identify as Christian, limit their participation to short clarifying questions. As a non Christian myself I will also limit my participation.
With permission of @ElishaElijah, who is new to the forum, I want to reproduce his opinion here:
In Arkansas inflicts child abuse on its school children
This is another false statement, there are people that believers in Jesus Christ, been born of the Spirit, have repented and walking with God -...
Well, as you see there are two questions in this topic.
1. Is circumcision a good thing? I have heard many people say that circumcision is very important to people, and even in a country like the United States, people perform circumcision on babies without their permission. I have also seen some documentary that shows it is not such a good thing.
2. If you take the so called abrahamic theologies, the Bible clearly mandates circumcision. In the New Testament of course there is a dispute,...
Referring to the God of Judaism and Islam, which conceivably defines monotheism, why would God have a name?
If there is only One God, does "THE GOD" need a name? A proper name? Is it a sociological aspect of humans wanting to anthropomorphise God? Or does God really have a proper name? If so, what for?
