After Simon said to Jesus "You are the Son of God", Jesus replied "thou art Peter (meaning stone), on this rock I will build my church". What did he mean? This could be taken two or three ways. Did Jesus mean he would build his church on the solid truth, a rock of truth "thou art the Son of God", Did he mean he would he build his church on Peter, or did he mean both?
Which brings up a related question. Why wouldn't Jesus call himself the Son of God?
I have heard the Vatican says...
This is one of the hot questions of the age. Throughout history our opposing beliefs have led to wars, division, hatred and prejudice - anything but peace.
However, now that we can view the entire planet as one globe and have things like the internet, are we now able to finally establish some form of peace?
What if there was only one thing you had to believe for the world to have peace. Would you embrace it? And you could get to keep your own belief as well.
If all you had to accept was...
Well, having partially completed my studies in Mesopotamian languages, I couldn't help but notice that the Sumerian-Akkadian word for " floodwaters " also refers to the New Moon and therefore the synodic month average that was the staple of Mesopotamian luni-solar calendars
Within the fulfillment of prophecy, someone is sent before the Tribulation....
Revelation and the Gospels, says the son of man comes secretly before the day....
So since the son of man could clearly warn people the day is impending, is it wrong of him to come secretly?
Do you think if the son of man was revealed, anyone would pay attention, if the whole world has already been deceived?
Who would you try with, not all Muslims read the Bible, not all Christians read the Tanakh, and not all...
This idea comes to my mind,as Muslim believer,I find it strange how some people try to deny Creator/God because they thought the human science is reach max level,it's could give explaination to eveything,and give solution to every engima/problem...etc
Is not just ingratitude against God,to use that favor against Him !!?
A recent case has brought attention again to the way that, in many places, priests in the confessional are exempt from the laws that require people in positions of authority (doctors, teachers, etc.) to report child abuse when they learn of it:
What's your position on this and why?
Personally, I don't see why priest-penitent privilege should be any stronger...
Could it be possible that Evolution theory is just a monstrous lie based on cross breeding? The only observable facts to the regular Joe is we have seen cross breeding and know that animals can change. For the rest we would need to look at the server in Hillarys' basement.
Seriously they make such a big deal out of Evolution theory, but what good does it do? If you were building a building, and miscalculate the strength of steel, the building might fall down. But if you're wrong about...
As per the title, and by follower I mean a member of that religion. For example, Islam requires believing in Jesus to be a Muslim.
How about Judaism or maybe Bahaii?
God, in this post, is not Christian, Muslim, Jewish. Is not Pagan. It's not Hindu. It's not Bahai. It's not... In other words, there is no bias in this post (I should say).
With that said:
Which sounds more powerful according to how you define god regardless if you believe he is real or know him as an idea.
1. God IS life itself.
2. God is the GIVER of life.
In the first, if god is life then who and what we interact with, we are interacting with and in god. The "breathe" (aka god or...
