Pope Francis urges parents to support their gay children – not condemn them
Pope Francis has urged parents worldwide to unconditionally support, not condemn, their children if they are gay.
The leader of the Catholic Church made his latest gesture of outreach to the LGBT+ community in off the cuff statements during his weekly general audience on Wednesday (26 January).
"Parents who see that their children have different sexual orientations, how they manage that and accompany their...
God’s Character :“For I proclaim the name of the Lord: Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.”
Deuteronomy 32:3-4 NKJV
Man’s state apart from God before being made alive: “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who...
This is, of course, in counterpoint the thread "I just want to sin!!"
I offer up this question to those believers who honestly think that, without God, everything is permitted. That is, if you really do believe that dictum ("without God, everything is permitted"), then you must also admit that if you did not believe in God, and follow what you believe to be God's commands, you would not know right from wrong.
Really? Is that really true?
Make a case for me, anyone who really thinks that.
Some sociologists believe that the rising number of non-religious Americans is a reaction against rightwing evangelicals. But that’s just part of the story.

God is One
Mankind is One
I see the entire structure of creation shows a cohesive bond is necessary for growth, including the human mindset.
Thus diversity does not negate our essential oneness.

I was asked by a fellow member to explain the word "Begotten" about Jesus in the Bible, because somehow it is a very bad word?
Will, I promised I will discuss this word on another thread, and here it is.
The Christian knows that Jesus is the only Begotten Son of God, and accepts this as fact, but they never question the meaning of how and what this means.
But we can not discuss this concept if we do not have the verses about Jesus being begotten and being the Son of God.
Here are a few....
This one i have no clue how to interpret
I was walking and as usual I think a lot when I walk...it was a dry pavement and no sand on it....in that moment i had a bad thought about a person i know, and I felt a pretty hard nudge in my left side, and I dont mean just one part like in my shoulder, but all of my left side of the body, from the shoulder to my feet. In the next moment i found my self on the opposit side of the road it was at least 6 feet apart from where I had...
That’s the question. Muslims should know this with their eyes closed.
I am vegetarian because i believe animals do have souls. God loves us humans but God also love animals. I am also against animals cruelty, animals is not stupid. They get afraid just like us.
I also believe in reicarnation. Some humans Will become a animal in their next life and some animals Will become a human in their next life. Animals and humans is more similar to each other than many humans think.
Why Are you vegetarian?
Why Are you not vegetarian?
I may be wrong, but in identifying the 'axis mundi' of the general Christian faith, through having read many books and spent many years on forums, it seems to all come down to a core tenet of 'faith in Jesus,' when we try to arrive at something 'indisputable.' The act/state of faith, as far as I can tell, seems to be the most important to you. As well, it's also what mother told me as a kid, when I inquired what was most important
That is not what I am trying to debate, therefore. Though,...
