Were There Two Different Jesuses?
When Luke wrote Acts of the Apostles to Theophilus, he guaranteed him that he had dealt with ALL that Jesus did and taught until the end of his life on earth. (Acts 1:1,2) If Luke is someone worthy believing, there must be something wrong with Matthew.
1 - I am not talking about the huge difference in the genealogy of Jesus. (Mat. 1:1-17)
2 - I am not talking about the anxiety of Mary to explain her pregnancy without having yet slept with Joseph. (Mat....
AND THE SUN STOOD STILL
It is amazing to see how religious Scholars from almost all quarters of religious life struggling so hard to prove that a day is missing in the history of the universe which can be explained only by the "miracle" that the sun stood still so that the Israelites could win a decisive battle at the conquest of Ganaan, so they assert. Vanity of vanities! When will vanity fade? The answer is in the same chapter of Joshua for how and why the sun stood still.
for Jesus adherents only.
Any Jesus adherent can answer, but the answers should be relevant/and hopefully concise, as considering the thread question.
I am not necessarily going to argue every point made in the thread/if any.
I know that some ''trinitarians'', /the word is not totally specific regarding how it's perceived,,
do not actually think that the Godhood is three 'separate persons'...you can answer as well, if you want
No, this isn't an attempt to prove God. I'm just examining the proposition that if God does exist, IF...., then does it make any sense to say, as the Bible and other revealed texts claim, that God always was? I've claimed for God having always been is a proposition that's beyond human comprehension.
Enter the transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics. Until recently, that's the theory that's been expressed as quantum transactions occurring with offer and confirmation waves...
For followers of revealed, faith-based religions (on the world stage, this generally refers to the Abrahamic religions) how do you handle the issue of infallibility?
What I mean is this: if your god was indeed perfect, and intended for his followers to correctly understand his perfect message, then he must have preserved a chain of infallibility which extends from god himself to the follower.
E.g. A "perfect" god must ensure that his chosen prophet is infallible; the prophet's writings...
This article lists many recent instances of Western publishers and authors being threatened for criticizing Islam:
If Muslims want respect from non-Muslims, they have to stand openly and clearly against these sorts of attacks against modernity. I know, how about a new denomination of Islam that openly and clearly defines itself as a supporter of modern human rights and liberties?
I am a non-Muslim who finds the subject of the succession to Muhammad a very interesting subject. Lately I have been listening to Sunni and Shia perspectives on the Event of Ghadir Khumm. It was the event where Muhammad raised Ali's hand before 100,000 people at Ghadir Khumm and said, among other things, and I paraphrase, "For whom I was his mawla, Ali is also his mawla." From my point of view a person can interpet mawla as either "authority" or "friend" depending on which...
I was watching 3ABN just a while back and several men were on the show discussing the persuasiveness of the theory of Evolution. The talk began with this notion. 'If there was no God and the Universe was a Godless Universe, the theory or Evolution and the things they teach in schools of Darwin and such, can be very persuasive.' (Please, this is NOT the exact quote)...
My thought upon hearing that was this: Why are they discussing any possible notion that there is no God and that the...
