Thoughts On the Eucharist
A resent thread by @e.r.m. and his doubt as to the centrality of the Eucharist in worship led me to reprise my thoughts on the matter………..
Most of the traditional churches believe that the Eucharist is central to Christian worship.
However they differ as to its meaning, in particular to the nature of the host. These differences go back to the earliest days of Christianity.
First I would like to introduce to those who have not seen it before, the form of...
Personally, I think the government should be totally free of Christians and Christian ideals. We can start by voting all Christians out of office, they're poofters, anyhow. Take down all the crosses, take God out of the pledge of allegiance, make ten anti-commandments. Let's eradicate this country of Christianity and ban all Christian activities and artifacts.
1. Thou shalt not believe in any God.
2. Love yourself, let your neighbor just do the best he can. And stay off me property!
We learn about what "god" means from the culture we grow up in. Often, we don't think too much about those teachings, where they came from, or what it might mean to challenge them. Why is "god" defined this way but not that way? What if you got to define what "god" means? What if you could throw out all those things other people told you about god and decide for yourself?
If you designed god(s), what would god(s) be like?
As I understand it, 24 books are in the Hebrew Bible used in Judaism.
There are 39 books in the Old Testament as part of the Holy Bible used in
Are 15 of the Old Testament books actually written by Christians themselves and passing it along and credited as being Jewish in origin?
If so, I think a fair number of Christians and respective denominations should stop deceiving people into thinking that the Old Testament is completely Jewish in origin.
If in disagreement...
Contribution of epigenetic modifications to evolution - Wikipedia
Jean-Baptiste Lamarck proposed that species experience certain obstacles in their lifetimes which they must overcome. They acquire certain characteristics to deal with these challenges, and such accumulations are then passed to their offspring. In modern terms, this transmission from parent to offspring would be considered a method of epigenetic inheritance. Scientists are now questioning the framework of the modern...
both deism and christianity believe in a creator god. the difference is that deists believe god left nature on it's own, while christians believe god sent jesus for us. isn't the deist logic kind of harsh? like god abandoned his creation? in deism where is the message of love that jesus taught?
The mind is a dynamic thing. In fact it's an idea, that doesn't have a static form per se. Some see it as being attached to a brain but that isn't necessarily so for plants and bacteria that have consciousness.
As a species wouldn't a mind have to adapt its belief system to represent it's current state because of a change in the environment?
And if it did change, how would it be changed?
The JW [***staff edit***] is a very nasty one and has caused a lot of unnecessary suffering by forbidding blood transfusions. Our adopted Down's Syndrome son, of Greek-Cypriot origin, was 16 months old when he needed a blood transfusion to save his life, as he has blood condition, which is rare here in the UK. A couple of days after he had the transfusion two JWs turned up on our doorstep. Normally I would say, 'No thank you', as I shut the door, but that day I challenged them. I told them...
