I was searching for a thread that I saw yesterday about the suitability of Music and Movies. Yikes is there an Amish poster here? Never did find the post.
Then, in my wandering I stumbled upon a section about Zoroastrianism, of which I have questions, but can find no way to reply to any post there, or start a new one. The post I was reading DID mention the idea that some folk think that Zoroastrianism is the precursor to Judaism. Of course it is likely that any available Jews will either...
Islam is the true Religion. It is the Religion that will lead you to Heaven. Today, especially in the west, it has become very misunderstood. The Holy Quran has been used out of context. People have been brain washed because of certain enemies of Islam and certain media programs. I have come here today to take any questions you have about Islam. Don't feel shy to tell me your opinion. I want this chat to be informative and friendly. Thanks.
Have you had a discussion in which someone who claims to be trained in ancient Hebrew, Greek or is a Bible Scholar, or has been to seminary gives the impression that because of their education in any of the fields they must be right and you must be wrong? It happens all of the time to me. And lets put that into perspective.
Jesus as a child impressed the Jewish religious leaders of the time. Later, as an adult, he strongly criticized those religious leaders. Jesus wasn't a scholar. Nor were...
Today I was pondering faith and came to the conclusion that all things we do are of faith whether we outwardly label them as "good" or "bad". As man see's it, a person either acts out of "unbelief" or "belief". However, is "unbelief" even a real thing?
I propose that "unbelief" is merely the covering over (true) "belief" that all have in their heart. See James 1:21 where it says that (all) have the implanted word inside.
Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of...
Suppose there are different ways of knowing and/or believing something. Say, one way to believe something is to become intellectually convinced of it through reasoned argument, but another way to believe something is to experience it.
The difference between believing the tree in my back yard is real because I told you it is, and one night stumbling into it.
So, can you choose to believe?
When asked to explain how Jesus can be God, and at the same time be subject to God, many religious leaders reply with the words, "It is a mystery."
The scriptures evidently show that this teaching is a mystery, and solves it.
God - Jehovah
This is what Jehovah says, The King of Israel and his Repurchaser, Jehovah of armies: ‘I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but me.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says Jehovah God, “the One who is...
It is impossible for God to lie. (Hebrew 6:18)
So how could his book be filled with glaring inconsistencies and significant discrepancies and still be called the Word of God?
Is consideration of how we got the Bible today the answer ?
These writings were "transmitted" or "entrusted" to scribes, sopherims and Masoretes, who made copies repeatedly for over a thousand year, until the Middle Ages.
Then they were translated from Hebrew to Greek and then to latin, from these thousands of...
