I am not sure where to put this, so should the moderators feel that this thread would be better suited placed somewhere else then by all means move it.
Anyway, an unrelated thread has got me thinking about the topic of ignorance and how it relates to our culpability for sin. In Catholic thought this issue has been addressed by a four way distinction in the types of ignorance human beings can fall into.
The first type is called nescience. Nescience is a lack of knowledge about which a...
The historical reliability of the Gospels refers to the reliability and historic character of the four New Testament gospels as historical documents. While all four canonical gospels contain some sayings and events which may meet one or more of the five criteria for historical reliability used in biblical studies,the assessment and evaluation of these elements is a matter of ongoing debate.Almost all scholars of antiquity agree that a human Jesus existed,but scholars differ on the...
Different proofs for God are being discovered every year, but the proofs for the absence of God (proofs for atheism then) are lacking. My thesis, which I am substantiating here:
The genius mathematician, who has proven in recent years the Millennium Prize Problem (the Russian national hero - Grisha Perelman), needs God as badly as all scientists do. Namely, any scientist needs words of support from own family or from other authority figures: "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were...
What covenant Did Allah take from Muhammad and other prophets, as stated in 33:7?
"And [mention, O Muhammad], when We took from the prophets their covenant and from you and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, the son of Mary; and We took from them a solemn covenant." 33:7
I offer the only covenant mentioned in Quran taken from Prophets is in 3:81..
"When Allah made (His) covenant with the prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge. And...
According to Christianity,
God wants people to go to heaven.
Satan wants people to go to hell.
To go to heaven, one must believe in Jesus, but 95-99% of humans who have ever lived have not believed in Jesus, and thus, according to Christianity, are going to hell.
So, if Christianity is true, does Satan ultimately win?
I have had the bounty in life from a young age to be able to visit many Temples dedicated to worshiping who I call God.
I thought it would be good to share some pictures of places of worship that help mankind pursue something greater than their own selves.
I came across this video on the Chile Baha'i Temple "Baha'i Temple in Chile on George Clarke's Amazing Spaces TV show" and it shows how we can be inspired to think outside our selves we we visit spaces for that purpose.
So on this...
I don't know if this has been done before, it seems like such an obvious thing to bring up...
Question: Out of all the world’s religions, which one would you say is the easiest, most low maintenance to follow?
I say Christianity:
No dietary rules
No mandatory system of regular ritual prayer (unless in a monastery)
Forgiveness of sins if you repent and promise never to do it again
Love others as you love God
Do unto others
Accept Christ as your Lord and saviour and receive eternal...
‘Marriages celebrated through a non-religious belief ceremony are now outnumbering Christian ones in Scotland as the nation increasingly turns its back on churches.
Official stats reveal that for the first time there were more humanist marriages in Scotland last year than there were Christian marriages of all denominations combined.
Humanist marriages made up 23% of all marriages, while Christian marriages made up 22%, according to the National Records of Scotland data.’

For example: IF God existed, then blah blah blah.
Does't such questions predetermine the non-existence of God, If anyone answer such question ?
Kinda trap loll.
If you accept homosexual marriages as biblical, shouldn't you by the same logic also accept marriages between human beings and animals, as biblical?
Of course, Exodus 22:19 does say:
“Whoever lies with an animal shall be put to death."
And other similar passages can be found in the Bible.
What Does the Bible Say About Having Sex With Animals?
But surely this can be pushed aside with the same logic as you push aside this:
“ ‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as...
