Neither did Jesus raise anyone from the dead literally and physically nor did he himself got resurrected from the literally and physically dead.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (Second Coming of Messiah) prophesied on February 20, 1886, on receipt of Word of Revelation from G-d for the birth of a great son who will be known to the corners of the Earth, with the title name “Musleh Maud” or a promised Reformer. The Promised son was born January 12. 1889.
Is it not a greater sign than raising one from...
I am an agnostic atheist. That means that while I don't believe in God, I don't say that I know for a fact that he doesn't exist. I am perfectly willing to change my position, but I will need some good evidence.
So, what do you think is the most convincing argument for the existence of God? I'm pretty sure I've heard them all. If you post an argument that I've rejected, I'll try to explain why I have rejected it.
This thread is dedicated to exploring the significance of the science of evolution from the perspective of Hindu/Buddhist worldviews. On several occasions within Hinduism DIR, the topic of evolution came up and several members expressed strong reservations about it. So I thought that I would create a dedicated same faith debate thread that looks at the reason why some who believe in the dharmic religions either do not believe that the evolutionary theory is true or that it is in opposition...
When Jesus gave the "sign of his presence" (parousia) and the "end of the age" what was he talking about? (Matt 24:3-14) He was clearly talking about his "second coming" so what is it "the end" of?
What do you expect to see happen according to what Jesus taught?
Even though it is usually vague and on the fringe of our conscious awareness, we all have an inherent desire for salvation. Bringing this into awareness is the first step. The next step is to identify how to attain salvation.
Before anyone can work toward their salvation, they must be able to get to the starting line. It's important to first recognize that our preconceived notions and the guidance that appeals to us initially will be incorrect. The only guidance that is truthful in this...
Hello guys, many of you know me very well as we have debated everything under the sun, to the point I have over 12,000 debates. However I have decided that this is almost a waste of time (from God's point of view at this point) and decided to go to Biola and get my masters certificate in Apologetics (which is simply a word from the Greek - Apologia) which simply means to give a defense of. And to use all that I have learned through a several decades long passion for debate to train local...
Why does everything you believe revolve around sex? Especially perverse sex?
How do you define "perverse sex"
Not wanting to put anything into anyone else's mouth (I mean we're talking about "perverse sex" here) . . . I'd simply say that so far as I'm concerned, all phallic-sex has an element of perversity, since it's a form of reproduction different than, and rejected concerning, the birth of the Jewish Savior.
. . . Here, I'd typically embark on quotations from Rabbi Hirsch demonizing...
Here's how this goes for me: get asked for evidence/reasons for my belief, write an essay, get told I'm a moron because my interpretation and logic doesn't fit with materialism. Does this happen to anyone else? It feels to me like theists provide evidence and valid logic for gods ALL THE TIME, to what avail? Honestly I find it exhausting to the point where I don't even care to share anymore. If a materialist put aside their preconceived belief that pure materialism is the proven answer they...
As probably many of you have done, my life has been one of wondering and searching, thus leading me to contemplate what's really going on here with religion in mind. About 15 years ago, with help from a book entitled "E=MC2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation" by David Bodanis that scared me even before I read it because I was worried it would shake me up, my fear was well founded.
Einstein believed in what he called "Spinoza's God", and both of them can be classified as...
