Who are those that are born of God?
John 1:12 - 14
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Should Notre Dame be restored with true faith to the original?
Should steel beams replace the original timbers?
Should this cold, dark medieval Gothic monstrosity be leveled altogether and replaced with something more enlightened in architecture in the form of the Renaissance as St. Peter's Basilica, The Queen of Catholic Churches? How about beautiful, white light and cheerful Baroque architecture as St. Stephen's Cathedral in Passau, Lower Bavaria, Germany designed, decorated and painted...
I'm Banned from the Ark Park
It was a ban without cause since to date he has not done anything to earn a ban from the park, at least not when at the park. Supposedly the park was having an event where they would answer atheists questions. It looks like they were afraid of the questions that Aron would ask.
If you were born to a devout Hindu family in Mumbai India, or to a pious Christian family in Atlanta Georgia, would you be a convinced Muslim today? Of course, you cannot answer that question for certain but, statistically there is an extremely high probability that you would be a Hindu or a Christian and you would believe Muslims have got almost everything wrong.
Hindus and Christians can ask themselves a similar question and they will get a similar result.
The hard truth is, you are not...
Sometimes I see people saying that Baha'is believe that all religions are one. I'm a Baha'i, and I don't agree with saying that. Just now I searched on the Internet, and in a Baha'i software library, and didn't find "all religions are one" anywhere in Baha'i scriptures, or even in messages from the House of Justice. Can anyone tell me where that came from? I'm wondering if Baha'is got that idea from from William Blake.
William Blake: All Religions Are One
Atheists are better at reasoning(E.G. logic problem solving) than the religious. I'm sorry agnostics, you're just bellow atheists A proposed explanation, from this study, why atheists tend to have high IQ than theists is that religious people are more likely to use intuitive decision making. To confirm this theory, the study found working memory increased with religiosity(I.E. strength of belief) but decreased with reasoning/cognitive skills and deductive reasoning stayed the same...
This is a somewhat lighthearted attempt to try and find common ground around the fringes of beliefs of both -
Turn on the captions if you cannot understand his accent
Fair warning - he does not answer the question in a straightforward way - but that is typical of the way he interacts - his goal as stated is to encourage self realization rather than provide answers - belief versus knowledge
The Hindu astika schools of thought span duality and monotheism all the way to atheism - and really...
One of the anchors of a spiritual world view is to tie in the spiritual reality to the practical, physical one via that which existed prior to creation. The understanding is that the ultimate mystery of the origin of anything and everything is a logical opening through which the spiritual can be equated with the mundane and actual.
In my study of science I have long been fascinated by the idea of a self-created Universe whose laws explain its origin. I assumed some such explanation was...
In the world today it seems like if you are not wealthy, good job and wife and kids, then you are not a happy or liked person? Why has the world become so obsessed with physical wealth?
Personally i have never been a rich person, but t has not bothered me because that is not what i seek.
But to me it look like so many people only seek wealth and big house, huge cars, and rich friends.
Why has it become like this?
According to the scriptures, this world is passing away, but those in the will of God abide forever.
Any thoughts about this, concerns about passing away with this temporary world, or desire to live forever?
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing...
