In Christianity, is Satan evil? Or does Satan merely do evil without himself actually being evil?
Please Note: If Satan is evil, rather than merely an entity that does evil, then God -- who has created Satan -- has created evil (and hence it cannot be said of God that everything he does is good).
On the other hand, if Satan is merely an entity that does evil, then God -- who presumably has the power to prevent Satan from doing evil -- condones evil when he does not prevent Satan from...
I love this Muslima her ideas on Islam. How she explains it, I could be a Muslim, I think. Very refreshing.
She fights for the freedom to have a personal relationship with Allah
Do not impose your ideas on others. Leave others free in their interpretation
No need to have Imaams teach you the "how and what" about Islaam; unless you chose so
She just addressed all the points, that I felt uncomfortable with in Islam; many others might feel the opposite
47minutes in total; bit long, but I...
Anyone care to rise to the challenge?
I have noticed that some religious people are just going about their ‘business as usual’ while the world economy is crashing and people are dying from this virus. I cannot put my finger on it, but something does not seem right about that. I mean in my religious community all they are talking about is being able to keep up with their regular activities which they are now doing online since we are not allowed to meet in groups per order of the governor.
So they have figured a...
"Yesterday, Creationist Kent Hovind spoke on his daily YouTube show about the 7-year-old boy who drowned at his “Dinosaur Adventure Land” (a low-budget Creation Museum) on Sunday.
The boy had allegedly slipped on a dock and fallen into a pond before being proclaimed dead at a local hospital.
Instead of expressing any sympathy for the family, or explaining how things would change at the park moving forward, Hovind briefly discussed what happened, before talking about how the rest of the...
While some spiritual practices abandoned self-care and cleanliness to attain high spirituality, Islam made it obligatory to clean oneself in preparation for daily prayers.
Caring for one’s hygiene is not only deemed a good habit in Islam but also rendered into rituals that constitute part of the faith itself. Also, while Muslim cleaning himself by practicing Islam; he gets good deeds points (Hasanat) in his personal scorecard. As per Islam, everyone has a scorecard contains good (Hasanat)...
Sorry to create another Covid 19 Pandemic thread but I thought it would be useful to hear stories for anyone interested about how we are coping or struggling during this rapidly escalating crisis.
I live in New Zealand and we now have 52 cases with another 13 confirmed in the last 24 hours. For the first tine we have a couple of cases we can’t link to those who have entered the country recently. Perhaps its the beginning of community spread. We shut our borders to overseas visitors two days...
With all that has happened in the last year or so, things have intensified so much in the last few months, that the whole world has been plunged into a crisis that apparently no one saw coming....or at least not the average person in the street.
Just with the disasters that have occurred during the last year...fires, floods, earthquakes, destructive weather events and other "natural" disasters in unprecedented numbers globally, it looks as if we were set up for this virus to finish us...
Mods: if this is in the wrong area of the forum, feel free to move it.
If you follow a religion or you live a very spiritual based lifestyle.
Have you thought of why you still feel you suffering in your life?
Often in a religious text, it says something on the line of "if you follow the rules/guidelines in this teaching, your suffering will end".
But often when listening to religious people, they are absolutely not free of suffering, what is your thought of this?
What can we do...
