If Jesus did not have a physical body before He was born from Mary, and He was still happy without it, and still had all the powers, what was the need to be resurrected to go to heaven with a physical body?
If having a physical body is important, why God the Father does not have one for Himself?
I am looking for logical answers. I am not debating whether or not Jesus was really physically resurrected!
1. If God were our Father in Heaven, would we call God fully Man and God?
Mat 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that...
Reincarnation among modern followers of Jesus (sorry, thread title got cut off and I can't fix it).
Please spare me the biblical lessons proving this is a heresy. I do not acknowledged such a concept among free thinkers. Thank you.
I know there were early Christians who believes in reincarnation who were silenced by the Orthodox thinkers over time. I know Jews both now and in the Christian Scriptures show a belief in reincarnation. (They wondered if John the Baptist was Elijah come back...
Supposedly, God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent (all-good).
Since we're focusing on the last one, there's supposedly the problem of evil for the last one.
My church is splitting due to the whole gay thing. My cat is probably dying (no eye in one eye, blurry eyed in another, can't eat much and stumbling around). And despite spending money advertising and despite being pretty okay in terms of skill with self-employed gig, I can't seem to break through (most calls...
The Torah says:
And the LORD opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me three times? And Balaam said unto the donkey, Because thou hast mocked me: if there were a sword in mine hand, I would have slain thee now. And the donkey said unto Balaam, Am I not thy donkey, upon which thou hast ridden from thy youth unto this day? Was I ever in the habit of doing this to you? And he said, No.
God opened the mouth of a...
Although religion is meant to create love and unity it represents probably the largest group of ‘us and thems’ on the planet.
Some religions instead compete with one another for the number 1 spot and some leaders teach their followers that any other religion but theirs is satanic thus creating prejudices and hate between religions. There have even been wars so deep has the prejudice and hatred become.
But does it have to be like this?
Outwardly the different religions have different...
I think it would be cool if science one day proved jesus is real.Because then I think it would make atheists want to pray to jesus more.When I think of all the atheists that are dying without christ it makes me cry.
An omnipotent God can do anything, so that means that there is nothing in logic that would prevent an omnipotent God from doing something He does not want to do.
Would an omnipotent God ever do what He does not want to do?
The answers to choose from are yes, no, or maybe.
If you answer yes, explain why you think God would do what He does not want to do.
If you answer maybe, explain why you think God might do what He does not want to do.
If you answer no, explain why you God would never do...
