"I'm a guy and I feel bad for women because every religion I've known was sexist in some way. If God was real, he shouldn't condemn someone because of their...gender..."
I would preferably like to limit the responses in this thread to Christians themselves because the question will not make much sense to those of other faiths, but I certainly won't deny anyone else from participating. I have added a poll for a shortened version of the question without the backgrounder in the quotes.
Recall the story of Abraham. Abraham was old and so the prospects of children were slim to none. But God had promised him children if he were to move to...
I'm really sorry if this is in the wrong place, because i'm new to this website.
Let me just get to the point then...
I think that if homosexuality is a genetically inherited trait, like most people believe, then it might be a major point against evolution. Of course, it might not be at all (which is why I wan't to debate about it).
I also think that if evolution is real (please don't tell me to stop being so ignorant, because I know that I am) then it might disprove the fact that...
As an atheist, I couldn't care less about attempts at reconciling science and religion. In fact, it's in my interest to highlight the many, many scientific blunders in the Bible.

Orthodox Christianity teaches one must accept Jesus to be saved. Few Christians can explain what exactly one “saved” from. Rather than to discuss what “saved” means, what does it mean to accept Jesus or to believe in Jesus? Jesus died about 2000 years ago. He is not here to speak for himself. The only available means a person in the 21st century has to hear about Jesus is by the testimony of others. This testimony is transmitted either by word of mouth, a minister or pastor, books, radio,...
This is Genesis 49:5-7, and it tells the reader that some people's "secret" is NOT to be entered into.
King James Version (KJV)
(5)Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. (6)O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. (7)Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel:...
under ideal Islamic State conditions (caliphate, not the terrorist group) Muslims should give non-Muslims one of three options:
1) become Muslim. If the kuffaar accept Islam and move within the borders of the state, they are to be treated as the muhajiroon were treated. If the kuffaar accept Islam but choose to remain outside of the state, they are to be treated as the Bedouin tribes of the desert are treat.
2) if the kuffaar reject Islam, they must pay tax to the Islamic state in order...
