What do you make of Colossians 1:15-16?
At first glance it is problematic for Christians but I don't think it is....
If you take the 15th verse out of context....
Here's the text:
15) The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
16) For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
What do you make of the...
State what applies to you in the poll and/or thread.
Is it ever morally acceptable to lie, especially if you were lying for your god, lying for one of your prophets, messiahs or messengers, or for your religion?
Is it a sin to use God’s name when you lie?
And what are the consequences for sinning in the name of God? Do God punish them for each lie people tell?
Is humankind evil?
I think so.....
Humankind is evil. Change my mind
Consider the following:
Humankind has declared planet Earth to be its property
I'm not sure where it got that idea from......
Humankind is destroying the environment
Humankind is unwilling to live in balance with the natural world that sustains it
It has declared an enormous free-for-all on the Earth's resources that is detrimental to life and biodiversity
Humankind is obsessed with accumulating a profit
So, this is my understanding:
One God who choses to make himself known in three different modes (liquid water, ice and steam analogy) = modalism
One God-being who exists in the form of three distinct and enduring persons who are all consubstantial with each other by sharing the same God essence = trinitarianism
Is Jesus Christ a person or a mode?
I'd say he's a person
There are many misconceptions from man about what was created/Made, When and where, or how many.
let's discuss from the bible these misconceptions.
#1. Man was formed on day 3, before any animals, and was made male and female on day 6.
#2. Adam and Eve had Children.in the Garden of Eden before they had Cain and Able outside the Garden.
#3. There were no pre-Adamic Race.
from these three Truths, all other questions are answered, as to A. Where did Cain get his wife from? B. Who are the...
From a Christian perspective at least, all humans are equal to one another:
What Does the Bible Say About Equality?
But that's equal in terms of worth and status in the eyes of God
However: Are all people actually equal to one another? Even if God loves them all the same?
Also, do you agree or disagree with God that all humans have equal worth and status?
Basically: Are some people superior to others, and are others inferior to others?
If so, how and why? In what way are some superior...
The writers of the Bible knew anything about God?
I’ve heard from several people who feel they know God. They will say with certainty what God is like. The problem of course is that what they claim is not consistent with each other.
I understand people feeling they have personnel knowledge about God.
I accept these biblical authors feeling they had reliable knowledge about God, doesn’t mean they did.
Why trust any claims made by other people about God?
A couple of years or so back I went on a Christian course called Freedom In Christ at a local church
It was done from an evangelical/fundamentalist Christian perspective and I am not an evangelical or a fundamentalist so it was all a bit strange to me
At the time I had a relationship with a demonic being who had been haunting me since 2004 and who I have since got rid of
A part of this course involved repenting and disowning “familiar spirits”, which is what I class the being who bothered...
