Did the personality(soul), Elijah, survive death?
But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
Based on what you have read or learnt or heard about Hinduism, what are some of your objections, concerns and or doubts about its religion/theology/philosophy etc.? I will try to engage with them to the best of my ability (other Hindu-s are also welcome). All good and sincere criticisms and objections or questions are welcome.
The following "objections" will not be addressed
1) "Hinduism is wrong because God told me so"
2) "Hinduism is wrong because it...
I'm from Belgium but I live now in Mexico. Some years ago I wrote a private thesis about an astonishing discovery I did while I was researching about Matthew's gospel.
Really unexpectedly, the chapter II (Nativity of Jesus) turned out to be scientifically provable. I mean by a mathematical demonstration (and not just philosophical arguments).
As I live among my cactuses (cacti) I have no possibility to show my discovery to anybody. Even, I don't know if anybody could be...
A person trying to convert me to their religion told me that to be a child of God one had to believe in God, follow their holy book and believe everything that holy book says. According to this person not everyone is a child of God.
Being a child of God over not being a child of God would make a person, being a child of God, one of God's favorites. Are any of you God's favorite????
I have seen that favorites always get special treatment. Are believers really getting special treatment over...
While I was praying today my hands started tingling intensely and I was reminded that is one way God speaks to me. I don't know what the message is, but I've had my hands start tingling enough when in prayer that it has become clear that it is one way God speaks to me.
While in the restroom I then heard a gentle whisper next to my ear. There was no words unfortunately, just a barely detectable breath. It sounded kinda creepy.
Another way he speaks to me is changes in body temperature....
The book of Isaiah is an outstanding work in the Old Testament that would distinguish Isaiah as one of the greatest prophets of his time. It contains numerous messianic verses and some of these would be recognised by both Jews and Christians in regards to the signs of the coming of their Messiah. Using Christian language we have Jesus the Christ fulfilling some of these prophecies and then the second coming of Christ fulfilling others.
The question I have is how can we know which verses...
From "The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy"
[The "Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy" was produced at an international Summit Conference of evangelical leaders, held at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago in the fall of 1978. This congress was sponsored by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy. The Chicago Statement was signed by nearly 300 noted evangelical scholars, including . . . .]

We affirm that the whole of...
Clearly you just have to look at the history of Religion and it is obvious people are divided and confused. Without interfering with free-will, God could easily solve that problem. What do you think his reason is for wanting us confused?
You can say He doesn't want us confused, but I know better. If he didn't want us confused, he would speak up and answer our questions. For one person, the truth is Judaism. For another person the truth is Atheism. For another person the truth is...
Many religions talk about an end time. Something bad is supposed to happen or gradually get worse until a savior or saviors or something intervenes and makes everything better.
But what if it was averted? What if there's something that prevents whoever or whatever causing the apocalypse. Afterwards, what if humanity becomes more advanced, technologically, spiritually and so forth, improves our world, creating new things and even becoming advanced enough to cure pretty much all diseases,...
