"He told them, "This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."
I scoured the Old Testament looking for a passage(s) saying that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem--and I cannot find it.
It seems like Science is of a female character. Scientific journals are as illogical and emotional as dates with a woman are. Females in my family are illogical and emotional most of the time. And it makes them good people. I like not the cold-blooded logic but the love.
Not every good candidate gets accepted. Rich and famous lovers with experience have an advantage. And just like a man desires to get inside a good woman, a submitter wants to be published in a good journal. Stephen Hawking,...
@SeekingAllTruth and others.
My faith as I understand it forbids me to engage in “quarreling” but given the fact that no other Hindu has taken up the challenge yet, I will try to sort this out.
Yeshua and Krishna were called both a God and the Son of God.
Krishna is called “Bhagavan / Bhagwan” which can be rendered as “God”. “The Son of God” is a Christian title which is not given to Krishna. Krishna is the 8th incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu.
Both were called Savior, and the second...
Does God require us to love ourselves?
I don’t know anywhere in scriptures of my religion where it says we have to love ourselves. I don’t know if it says that in the Bible or any other religious scriptures.
I believe that we should at least like ourselves but I do not believe we have to love ourselves because I consider that narcissistic. I do not care what psychologists say about how we should love ourselves since I go by what religion teaches. I do not want to love myself because I...
Question about jw sites I could go to to help me with my paranormal questions.
Do you know of any jw sites that would help me with my paranormal questions?
Upon talking with people through the years, I sometimes meet a person who feels some way of life or way of thinking is the cure for all ailments. Sometimes this is a religious view, other times an antireligious view. Sometimes its political, others philosophical. But, any way you look at it, the argument is made that if only everyone would embrace such and such, the world or the individual would finally be at peace.
On an individual level, do you feel there is any such way? How about on...
The similarities between Krishna's life and Jesus' life are so startling that it's often difficult to tell where one begins and the other leaves off. That's why it's important to remember that the Krishna legend was around a full 1000 years before the gospels emerged. The only conclusion a rational person can reach given the often exact same matching details of each is that the gospel writers borrowed heavily from the Krishna legend and other dying/rising gods as they constructed their own...
If you mixed holy water with the same amount of normal water do you double the amount of holy water or does the water lose its holiness completely? Or is there a varying measure of holy potency?
Also a priest obviously can't turn an entire ocean into holy water by blessing it, so what amount of water is the limit per blessing?
'Dozens of Catholic priests in Germany plan defy the Vatican and bless homosexual partnerships, with many set to live-stream the blessings online.
In March, the Vatican decreed that the Catholic Church cannot bless same-sex marriages. In response, more than 230 professors of Catholic theology in Germany – and other countries where German is spoken – signed a statement protesting the decision, the Associated Press reports.'

There are two extremes corrupting religion.
1. Ignoring God's mercy and only talking about His punishment.
2. Ignoring God's punishment and only talking about His mercy.
The latter is more prevalent and some Christians, such a JWs, go to great lengths trying to make you believe the Bible doesn't even talk about hell. The extent of the delusion is saddening.
In Islam the prevalent issue is not in ignoring God's punishment in the hereafter, but in ignoring His law in this world and...
