Anyone else believe this? Like I believe Jesus was God's messenger who was sent down from Heaven to do a mission undoubtedly. I just don't think he came to do what everyone else seems to think. When I look at America these days, I feel that Christianity hardly has a leg to stand on as it once did. I believe it looks as though we could be in the end times, but would God consider a serious population reduction under the terms of the New Covenant? I know He would under the terms of the Old...
"The earlier generations committed a double crime: (1) their own sins, (2) the bad example they set for those that followed. We are responsible not only for our own misdeeds, but for those which our example and our teaching to our juniors may induce them to commit. But it does not lie in the mouth of the juniors to ask for a double punishment for seniors: the motive is not justice, but pure spite, which is itself a sin. Further, the later generations have to answer for two things: (1) their...
In Abrahamic Religions, it is believed that there are Messengers of God who have come with new covenant each time and each brought a set of teachings or commandments from divinity. Example of these Messengers are Noah, Abraham and Moses.
There are also other prophets such as the Jewish Prophets (Daniel, Ezekiel), who did not bring commandments, but according Bible, the saw visions and dreams, and prophesied about future events.
Now, regardless of the usage of the Terms 'prophet', and...
One set of foundation premises of Liberalism is connected to revisionist history. This is where the past is judged by the standard of the present, and where those living in the present, are somehow responsible for the past, based solely on sex or skin color.
The question for science is, does any physics we know of support this transcendence of time or is this a metaphysical claim like is common in religion? If so should separation of church and state apply?
In terms of reverse...

Read an interesting research article concerning religion and its influences on mental health from the Indian (that is Indian from the country of India) perspective. According to the article, religious beliefs and practices often contribute to the development of some psychiatric disorders in regards to maladaptive behaviors like obsessions, anxiety and depression. Citing Freud, he believed that there was a similarity between obsessive behavioral patterns and religious practices in their fixed...
The premise is to explore any verses against wizardry, talking to spirits, practicing, magic, that sort of thing.
Christianity is one of the most absurd religions in the world. It is a religion that teaches that God fathered himself, as well as his son, so that his son is his father and his father is his son, and his son's father is his father's father's son. Or something like that. In any case, the deity supposedly died via sacrificing himself to himself to let out all of his wrath toward his creations upon himself. He was mad at humans for their sinful nature that he created them with, and so he...
Often in discusion or debats i have noticed that when someone use the word moral, moral code, morality, or similar wording of this, it can often creat a lot of fuss and heated debate?
In this tread i do not say one morality is better or worse then others. or that some people have better or worse morality then other people.
What i want to dicuss/debate is the reaction people get when the word morlity is used. Why do it create so much tention?
