I believe that the prophetic scriptures from the books of Daniel, Revelation and others in the old and new testaments teach that the majority of professed church's of today that make up Christianity have fallen away from believing and following God's Word in order to follow man-made teachings and traditions that break the commandments of God to depart God and his Word (the Faith).
I believe that these same scriptures teach that the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH (not the people, God has his...
hopefully I'm in the right thread for this post..
The other night I was watching this video of
( Ancient Aliens unexplained structures) lost cities that were about 70 - 100 feet or more under water for about
19000 to millions of years ago.
Like the lost cities that have been found under water around the world.
As I watch these scientist asking questions as to how and what caused these cities to be under the oceans water...

An obvious starting point is the leadership within Catholicism that views a succession of leaders from the Apostle Peter to the current Pope.
Another key difference is Catholicism appears to be much more unified and theologically consistent than the rest of Christendom.
I’ve been thinking about Catholicism recently as their church appears to engage with other faiths both within and outside much more constructively than evangelical Christianity. There are Christians denominations that are...
Not sure if this is in the right section...
Anyway, through various discussions and, at times, heated debates online with Christians on different sites these last couple of years, I've come under the impression that at least some Christians view Judaism as "Christianity minus Jesus". Certainly, I'm pretty sure this is a mindset that groups like the Hebrew Christians and Messianic Judaism have used to preach to and convert Jews.
Is this really how Christians view Judaism?
Note: This isn't...

An example can be, when we first time enter this forum, we identify our self one way, but in time this identity may change depending on our journey through life are we the same identity later on in...
A fair way to approach a holy book is to say, what does it say regarding women. Is it just or unjust? Fair or unfair to them?
And if there are differences in practice and law with regards to them, does it justify it?
Dealing with some Edge cases.
1. "beat them"
It literally in the context, means sex. It means continue and do have intercourse with them. The verse is saying don't act according to your fear but rather, just admonish them while not talking to them about it as well as not...
Would you care to join me in a modest thought experiment? If so, proceed...
Let's suppose there are two people, both of whom happen to be standing outside a bank at the moment an alarm goes off quickly followed by a heavily masked individual bolting from the bank as fast as a sprinting sperm cell. The two people -- let's call them "the witnesses" -- observe the man run around the corner of the bank and disappear out of sight.
Next, a squad car of donuts-armed police officers shows up to...
St. Thomas Aquinas was a 13th century Italian priest and theologian. He was the first Christian to write a formal, comprehensive systematic theology and he synthesized Aristotle and Christianity (which was quite controversial since Christianity up to that point had been philosophically neo-Platonist). His work has been highly influential throughout Western Christianity on both theological and moral thought. Basically, he was a big deal.
One of the other reasons he was a big deal is...
