^-^ Hello everyone!
So I havn't been on forums like this for 8 years and RF was the first and only one I joined recently so far.
I must say this "Like" culture is crazy. I never seen it like this before. Not sure if it's just the RF community or most everyone in forums these days hit that "Like" button most of the time. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I just hope you guys really do like what I have to say before hitting that "Like" button is all.
I'm learning to hit that "Like"...
If you are a trinitarian I have a question for you.
We know that God knows all things, is all powerful, and is eternal.
I also know that all 3 persons of the trinity are fully god meaning they all have these attributes that make them fully god.
according to matthew 24:36 "only the father knows the day and the hour"
I can understand jesus had 2 natures, but if the holy spirit is god, why does he not know the day or the hour if he did not take on flesh?
Today a friend urged me to try doing the Islamic prayers "with an open mind and heart" to see how I will feel. I tentatively agreed.
If someone managed to convince me to do Islamic prayers and play the role of a Muslim while doing so, I'm pretty sure I can give prayers from other religions a shot.
So, post prayers from your religion that don't require going to a house of worship or being in a group. Please note that asking other members to do or say those prayers is against the forum...
In a recent story about Mormons leaving the LDS Church in protest, there was something that made me curious:
With lawyers and notaries on hand, participants planned to sign letters of resignation and march around the temple before depositing some in a mailbox near the church office.
Why would "lawyers and notaries" be necessary to...
Why presume preternatural agency rather than preternatural catalyst?
One reason that many presume purpose and, therefore, intentionality is that they take their scripture as holy writ. For the purpose of this thread, let's assume otherwise. What I'd like to see here is an argument for purpose (and its motivation) that does not rely on scripture and/or anthropomorphic projection.
How much you are sure that you're right ?
are you 100% sure that the hell fire doesn't exist and if yes then why ?
Did you think for awhile that the hell fire may exist ?
Will you feel regret if you found yourself in the hell fire afterlife or you won't care about it ?
It seems like no religious person in the Abrahamic faiths takes Epicurus' riddle seriously:
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?
The most common objection to this is that God is testing us and so he wants to stop evil and he can do it, but its apart of a greater plan where everything will be...
The rule of priestly celibacy has been called into question by Pope Francis, who says he believes that the rules requiring all priests to abstain from sex "can be changed."
The tradition in the Catholic Church has been for priests as well as bishops to take vows of celibacy, a rule that has been in place since the early Middle Ages.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "All the ordained ministers of the Latin Church, with the exception of permanent deacons, are normally chosen from...
Salam Friends, I recently spent some time reading Bihar-alanwar on the subject of Promised Mahdi. I am really liking this Book. I like to share with you some of the things I read, and ask some questions with the purpose of mutual understanding.
This is the Question Imam Sadiq asked Mufaddal as recorded in Bihar-alanwar:
"Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said: O Mufaddal, you have made a nice statement. Now tell me in what type of our Rajat do you believe? While some of our miserly Shia...
Do entanglement and nonlocality imply that everything is interdependent and interconnected?
(Why is this religiously significant? Because spirituality can be defined as the transcendental experience of interdependence and interconnection.)
