I read the Bible with the view it is intended to be read with 100% literal belief. On this site, at least, this appears to be a minority opinion. I’m curious about the thinking that it is not 100% literal. Some Christians believe that Jesus died and was literally resurrected three days later. Yet they won’t believe the literal account of the flood, for example. What metric is used in deciding what is to be literally believed and what is not? If you don’t believe one part of the Bible, why do...
If God is energy ( do not need to be the abrahanic God) and everything is build or created by energy, would'nt that mean a human being should be able to "tapp in to" the energy of God?
Is that how a human being can awaken to God from within?
Just a thought in my mind its mind boggeling
I think some signs you might b in an abusive religion would be that they discourage you from asking questions You should be able to ask questions. Trying to get a lot of personal information from you also. I don't give out a bunch of information on me in the beginning ever. I know some places have you fill out paperwork.
Control over my appearance, people dressing alike no I don't go by dress codes. Dressing up conservative is good enough. What are some more signs?
Who is the God of Abraham to you? I've seen a couple of featured threads about the God of Abraham today but first we could ask who is He and can we define Him? So often when we discuss the God of Abraham we have vastly different concepts.
Is He a he, her or transcendent about human conception of gender. Is He knowable, unknowable and how can we know. Did He send Prophets, Messengers, Avatars or Manifestations? Do scriptures inform us of who He is? Which scriptures enlighten us and which...
I got into a debate elsewhere earlier today with a group of Calvinists that were making fun of some meme that depicted a person saying that even if God existed, they would not worship God.
Several people pointed out that this was likely because of things like the Problem of Evil: the meme-maker was basically saying that God would be unworthy of worship even if one existed. That’s all beside the point, just background.
What caught my attention was one poster (one of the Calvinists I...
Someone proposed to me the following criteria for being 'Abrahamic'
'Whether or not you believe in the scriptures that are said to be from that God.
Whether you believe in and follow the rules set by this God.
Not every such monotheistic God is the Abrahamic one.'
So does this mean that liberal Christians and others who do not necessarily believe the texts/laws are God's inerrant word are not Abrahamic even if they may share a monotheistic creator concept as one example amongst others?...
I do not believe anymore that the Abrahamic God is the one true God.
But i believe in a intelligent force/spirit/God who has created the universe/universes. But i believe God has no spesific religion.
I believe God send holy souls/wise humans to this world to teach us love, holiness, order, justice, peace, kindness.
I believe God do not care about which religion humans believe in, God care about our heart, that we are kind and loving to each other
As a creationist, YEC, OEC, ID proponent, guided evolution proponent, how do you imagine "creation" of species happens?
Is there a bearded man materializing from thin air and going to work on some clay? Do new species poof into existence? What exactly are the steps from a world without a given species to a world with that species?
