In my opinion I think it must be due to the passages in the Bible which state that "Only Pure and Virginal Men will be Saved" and "Only Pure and Virginal Men can stand before the Lord" and also that supposedly after the Apocalypse, the Pure and Virginal Men will become the Kings of the Earth.
But they do have a problem, because if ALL the Men on Earth became Pure and Virginal then the human race would die out. So maybe that is why they do not TELL Men to be Pure and Virginal but they simply...
I recently read about a guy who is an ''evangelist'' and pastor of a church, that he has a long history of recent sexual misconduct allegations, some of which he admitted to, but many he claims are lies about him. Would you attend a church where the preacher was being accused by quite a few women, of sexual misconduct? Why or why not?
1. Creationism, the position which even some scientists defend, which holds that the universe was created by God only 6000 years ago, and that a flood covered the whole Earth. It’s good to remember all the flood myths in the world, and that during the last glacial maximum or Ice Age which peaked around 17,000 years ago, sea level was 400’ lower than today.

The following "objections" will not be addressed
1) "Hinduism is wrong because God told me so"
2) "Hinduism is wrong because it...
I'm from Belgium but I live now in Mexico. Some years ago I wrote a private thesis about an astonishing discovery I did while I was researching about Matthew's gospel.
Really unexpectedly, the chapter II (Nativity of Jesus) turned out to be scientifically provable. I mean by a mathematical demonstration (and not just philosophical arguments).
As I live among my cactuses (cacti) I have no possibility to show my discovery to anybody. Even, I don't know if anybody could be...
A person trying to convert me to their religion told me that to be a child of God one had to believe in God, follow their holy book and believe everything that holy book says. According to this person not everyone is a child of God.
Being a child of God over not being a child of God would make a person, being a child of God, one of God's favorites. Are any of you God's favorite????
I have seen that favorites always get special treatment. Are believers really getting special treatment over...
