    CHRISTIANS ONLY: Trinitarian Christianity - Monotheistic or Polytheistic?

    I am confident in saying that Christians view themselves as monotheistic. Whether they are Unitarian or trinitarian Christians, all Christians see themselves with the belief of one God. Trinitarians, which make up the vast majority of Christianity, see God in three forms: The Father, The Son and...

    The Obvious Facts Nobody Else Outside Your Faith Seems to Understand

    When I talk to Christians they seem to have much of the same talking points, that is apologetics. If God exists why is there evil? To allow free will. I then argue from that point that there is no free will in Heaven, if there is no evil in Heaven. I digress. Most Christians seem to be equipped...

    Religion and Classism

    For all the people who say “if you can’t afford to have a kid don’t have sex”…Do you think sex should be a class privilege??

    Christianity Is Only Popular Because Of Its Idle Threats

    Seriously. If there wasn't a threat of eternal damnation for those who reject Jesus then Christianity wouldn't be nearly as popular as it is today. Take it from an ex-Christian, the Christian religion is built on fear mongering principles and is systematically designed to instill that fear...

    Salvation Was Already Established In the Old Testament

    I was a Christian for 14 years until I started running into theses kinds of BIG contradictions and problems within the bible itself. Be prepared to be mind blown. There are plenty of bible verses in the OT about how God is acknowledged by the Jewish people as the one who is their "salvation"...

    I Just Proved That Jesus Is A False Messiah In Less Than 5 Minutes

    *Staff edit*. Here is why. He failed one of the first OT prophecies which was to be descended from king David and king Solomon. Genesis 49:10 states that the messiah would descend from king David's side and king Solomon in Chronicles 22:9-10. Jesus already failed this due to a virgin birth...

    Proving With The Bible That Jesus Was NEVER Needed And Is A Con Artist

    JESUS IS NOT GOD AND EVEN LIED ABOUT IT Jesus cannot be God because Jesus was a man who lied about being God, which goes against Numbers 23:19; "God is not a man, that he should lie, Nor the son of man, that he should repent..." Not to mention in, Hosea 11:9 God flat out states, "I am GOD...

    Qur'an Vs Bible Vs Bhagavad Gita Vs None

    I read 2 out of 3 and touched on a summary with one of the others. Which one do you believe is the best and give your reasons for why. For those that think none of them are any good, state your reasons as well.

    For Non-Christians Only: If You Were Christian, What Kind of Christian Would You Be?

    As someone who has never once considered himself a Christian, I obsess about this question a lot. The thread title is all you need to answer the question for yourself, and with this introductory post I am going to elaborate on this for myself. So, the main groups I am interested in include...

    The World Isn't Black and White Atheist vs Theist

    I have been reading a decent bit of Chris Hedges lately. I recently got his book I don't believe in atheists. It's not about believing or not believing in atheists so much as it is about utopian idealists whether theist or atheist not being what we need in the world. He talks about the...

    Your Favorite Part of a Religion You Don't Practice?

    Howdy. I was thinking about how we tend to view other ideologies and theologies through particular lenses that might drastically shape the way we see them. So this made me curious, what is your favorite practice or belief from a religion you do not practice? I could not select one so ended up...

    What Is Your Most Controversial Religious Opinion?

    I've been watching some videos with what we might call controversial opinions. Some of these are about philosophy, some of these are about Ukraine etc. What controversial opinions do you have about religion or other religious traditions? I suppose one controversial opinion I'll share is that...

    Are all Religions the Same ?- Dr. David Frawley

    Howdy. I was browsing youtube looking for different content related to Dharma and came across this video. I thought it was pretty interesting and might be something worth sharing. What do you guys think about the content of the video?

    My Views on Scripture

    Howdy! Recently I have been thinking about scripture an awful lot as I have been going through various Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh scriptures. I thought it might be interesting to discuss the view I have come to embrace and see if you guys had any interesting thoughts or responses. I think that...

    Tensions I've felt in Christian apologetics

    Here are a few statements I've heard basically verbatim from Christian apologists, clustered in groups to show the tensions in their reasoning that I've noticed. If it's not your particular version of your faith, that's fine and I don't want to strawman anyone, but I have heard all of these from...

    I just want to sin!!!

    I am ever-so-often told by Christians who find out that I do not believe that a god exists, that “You are denying God because you just want to sin.” This has always struck me as a bizarre thing to say, as I cannot think of anything that a Christian would consider a sin that I would have needed...

    Tell the World

    Well William Miller told the world that 1844 was the year awaited by many. So why did they not see what they had predicted and expected? I see He got it right. Regards Tony

    Paul's Opinion or the Holy Ghost?

    So, in 1 Corinthians 7:1 it is stated, "Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry." Later in 1 Corinthians 7:8-9 the following is stated - “To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single, as I am. But if they cannot exercise...

    Extreme violence in the bible interpretation?

    I have just finished reading Judges trying to learn about this religion :) And I feel like I've been through the wringer emotionally with this episode at the end, what is the reason and interpretation ? Does god still behave like this? What about other really evil events like rape?

    Why Torah based Jews would be unconvinced

    "If that is what you consider to be true then why does it matter to you what we Jews say?" That is the question I often want to ask when threads are started as if they are asking questions to Jews when instead what is being posted is a statement or manifesto. That is not to say that some people...
