An idea inspired by @Quintessence and @Taylor Seraphim
Talking about the supernatural. The nature of it in a religious or spiritual setting. How do we define it. What is behind the mask.
Supernatural, according to Merriam, "is unable to be explained by science or the laws of nature : of, relating to, or seeming to come from magic, a god, etc."
There are a lot of things that cannot be explained by science or the laws of nature. So, in that respect, since we do not...
If your God exists then why does He allow children to starve and pedophiles to exist. It is one of the most frequently asked questions of atheists and one that they think dismisses the existence of God. On another thread and another topic I recieved this post that caused me to think that maybe it is not something that Christians know or believe. Maybe it was lost with the creeds?
If what you say about starving children were true and that is evidence of Satan's alleged influence, where is...
The story below is just fiction and is create to give one an idea how the beliefs if people don't accept the salvation of Jesus then the nature consequences of that is eternity destruction for that people.

David, 40 years old, a billionaire, atheist, engage in charity and have help many people through it.

Lot of debate concerning what happens to us after we die, but what about before we are born? I am interested in other religions views on this. Please share.
I have quite a few.
a) If Islam is God's perfected religion and God sent Jesus as a mere messenger, why is Christianity the world's dominant religion and has been nearly since its inception? Why would Allah do that?
b) How is the Qur'an perfect and universal if it can only be studied and properly understood in Arabic? Also, why does the oldest copy not match up to any known copy we have today?
c) Why do all the earliest Mosques face Petra? And why does Petra fit the descriptions given in...
What do people here think of the evidence that has been uncovered regarding Christianity's relation to Paganism? Many scholars have noticed that the events and characters depicted in the Bible were taken from earlier Pagan traditions. I find this area of study fascinating, so I'd be interested if anyone else had good sources on this, I've found http://exposingchristianity.org/ to be a good source for this topic. Does anyone else have references they'd recommend for proving...
So, two debates here. One regarding the title, but the other debate is that we Christians believe things more bizzare, far-fetched, and implausible with science and what any of us have seen than invisible creatures of the sea or woodland that people have been claiming to see for thousands of years that they give the name "gnome", "Ghost", "Alien", "Dragon", "Saint", Mermaid, Bigfoot, UFO, Angel, Elemental Spirit, Ancestor, gods, patrons or whatever....Maybe manifestations/apparitions of...
Explain why and how you "flaunt" your religion, or why you don't.
"Flaunting" might include clothes, jewelry, tattoos, proseltyzing, praying in public, etc. Anything that makes your preference known to the world, no matter how subtle or blatant.
Feel free to include stories. Did your outward expression make a difference in the world? Were people nice? Were they mean? Did you meet like-minded people?
Why I dont flaunt: I decided a long time ago that it was in my best interest to keep to...
When Jesus came to restore true worship among his people back in the first century, what did he find? He found a religious system so corrupted by man-made traditions that he could barely recognize it. But he was not sent to the ones responsible for the corruption, nor to the ones who willingly upheld it....he was sent only to "the lost sheep of the house of Israel". (Matt 10:24) How many people recognize the significance of that assignment? Jesus already knew that as a nation, Israel had...
Amsterdam declaration of humanism* has mentioned the word “believe” three times in the first two clauses of fundamentals.
May I ask them whether their belief in these fundamentals is on the basis of religion or on the basis of science? Please
