    Do dogs believe in us?

    I have three dogs. When I’m not at home, or somewhere out of sight in the garden, they still believe I exist. My proof of this consists in: - Observations of them waiting, e.g. on the windowsill, at times they expect me to get home. - They look for me if I’m in the garden or orchard (etc). -...

    Shopping for Religion

    I was chatting with Chat GPT today. I asked it several questions about theology. First, I posed it the question: "what religions believe we are creating God?" It didn't list religions but rather the theologies posed in the ideas of panentheism and the cumulative concept known has process...

    Poll: Which Came First?

    This topic probably comes up often on these forums, but I'm including a poll with multiple options and also putting this in debates, so there's that. The question on my mind is: Which came first, God or existence? By existence I don't mean the Universe. Doing some extrapolating, I would argue...

    Poll: Inside Looking Out vs Outside Looking In Regarding Religion

    This thread was inspired by this post I wrote last night. “From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can't explain it." This is a famous quote I'm sure some of you have heard before. I'm curious as to if most people here view themselves on the...

    An appeal for accurate naming of expectations, or: Is belief truly belief?

    A recent exchange led me to revisit an ancient realization: while it is customary to talk of "believers" in some creeds, belief proper is often optional and very circunstantial. It seems to me that in practice what we see (most often and most emphatically in the Abrahamics) is rarely an...

    God convinced me he doesn't exist. What did he do to to convince you he does or doesn't exist??

    I had believed in God for 60 years. For the next 10 years I reverted to believing it was some kind of deistic god or higher power, but most certainly this higher power was NOT the Christian pagan god, Yahweh (Yahweh in case you didn't know was a minor Canaanite god in a collection of Canaanite...

    "I believe in science, I don't believe in God"

    I can see why some feel that way, I used to feel that way, too. The concept that science has all the answers has been growing in the secular world. Science is based on the scientific method, a process by which truth is discovered, including objective observation, testing, hypotheses, etc. To...

    Holy Spirit is Teacher? Bible Thoughts/Debate?

    Thank you for viewing, and please let me assure you that I was not sure where to post this between scriptural debate, and bible debate. Would there be a better place to put it @Staff Members if it is not in the correct area. May all of you take care, and have a good day. These are some of the...

    The Words spoken by Jesus His Pre-Eminence.

    I have been making threads asking people to look deeper into the parables of Jesus His Pre-Eminence to better understand the messages that Jesus His Pre-Eminence preached. But i can now see that it is not really helping. The reason is because i have seen many people do not take the Words of...

    The Hierarchy of the Priesthood.

    At the top, is the Prophetic and the Apostolic. The Prophetic is referring to the people that can hear from GOD inaudibly, decipher and assimilate what they heard accurately, and then teach the people. Elijah (EL-YAH) which are triplets; three distinct persons which operate by the same...

    ABRAHAMICS ONLY: Parables series: The Wine and wine skins.

    Matthew 9:17 reads: 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. If we look at this with the understanding we have today, we will completely miss the...

    ABRAHAMICS ONLY: John the Baptist; a voice in the wilderness saying: Make strait the way of the LORD

    Hello everyone, today i want to touch on something that is not really seen as something that is important. And that is regarding the Great John the Baptist. Jesus His Pre-Eminence said: John 3 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he...

    ABRAHAMICS ONLY: The Tree called the knowledge of good and evil, (Genesis: a closer look) continued.

    In Genesis 2:16-17 it is written: 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. If we look at...

    Genesis 3: A height of Blasphemy; a hoary lie.

    This is continuation of our study; a deeper look into the events of the Garden of Eden. in Genesis 3, it is written: And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live...

    Revelation 10:7

    But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. Saul paul said this: 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have...

    Why Didn't God Leave Huge Quantities of Secular Evidence For Jesus?

    Why didn't God leave behind a huge trove of secular evidence for Jesus having lived on earth, dying on the cross and all the supernatural events accompanying the crucifixion like dead bodies rising from the grave and walking around Jerusalem? If God really wanted us all to believe Jesus is His...
