In various discussions I have had over the years with people about their concepts of Heaven and Hell I have noticed something interesting. Keep in mind that most of those I have had this discussion with are from a more Christian fundamentalist background.
When discussing concepts of Heaven there was much room for friendly discussion. Some had the streets of gold in the clouds view. Some had an opinion that Heaven would be a perfect world with beautiful mountains sparkling rivers and no...
There is much talk today on the subject of end times, especially among Christians and Muslims. With this in mind I would like to invite my friends on this forum, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Hindu, or whatever faith or tradition you follow to share with us your views on this subject.
Personally i don't think it is fair, most people haven't recognized the Gospel of John is made up, the writings of Paul contradict Yeshua, and Simon being called the stone (petros), was meant to warn people he would mislead them.
So realize it is far to late to stop it happening to begin with, as most Jews, Muslims, and Christians have all been mislead by what they'd call the Dajjal, Anti-Christ or Armilus.
Yet what to do to inform everyone it has already occurred? Is it possible based on...
I was a devoted Christian for a very long time, 25 years or more - a Trinity believing Protestant taught that our creator God is omniscient (all-knowing) omnipotent (all-powerful) and omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time). This creator designed and created men and women fully and completely all by 'himself'.
What I don't understand, is if this creator purposefully designed and unleashed upon the earth a creature capable of rape and murder, why isn't 'He' to blame for these...
Not as concept, consciouness, pantheism, pathenism, animism, form/non form, everything, etc... but plain, ol' Entity/Being/Person-like.
Spirits exist, I know that. However, spirits, in my experience, is not just an internal experience, it is someone I have seen with my eyes and felt physically. It isn't just based on personal experience.
So, if God is a spirit what does he look like? The spirit I saw had jeans and a white t-shirt, was male and was walking kind of fast to the bedroom. He...
Do you believe your God is all powerful (able to to anything any time he chooses) and that he is omnipotent (being everywhere and knowing everything that's going on) if so I have some questions. If not then why don't you think that?
1. If God knows everything and everything that is going to happen why did he still make humans and put the tree in the garden.
2. If God knows anything then why did he make the devil?
3. If God is all powerful why must he send his son/himself to die when he...
In what system do you claim this took place? It certainly wasn't in Judaism or under any Mosaic code. In what language would one find the word "xother" or "xathan"?
The Hebrew word for a Jewish "bridegroom" is hatan חתן. The same word is used for the "father-in-law," and the word is directly associated with circumcision:
חָתַן (1) TO GIVE ONE’S DAUGHTER IN MARRIAGE (verhehrathen). Hence part. Kal חֹתֵן a father-in-law, the wife’s father (a husband’s father is called חָם), who gives his...
is there any religion that is not structured as a tautology?
In a DIR forum, Is Unbelief a Sin? it came to mind that there were a number of reasons god sends people to hell, and as I remembered them some had not been declared sins.
Reasons for being sent to hell
Revelation 21:8 lists; cowardliness, faithlessness, detestability, murder, sexual immorality, sorcery, idolatry, and lying.
Romans 2:6-8 lists; self-seeking and obeying unrighteousness (whatever that is)
Romans 2:12 being ignorant of god's law
So my question is, is it safe to assume all...
