The purpose of this OP is to explore our Choice of Faith, is it a choice, is it not?
I have read in other OP's on RF where people say it was not a choice, that their Faith was a natural process that required no choices.
To an extent I agree, as I see God has created us all in the same image...
How can evil exist if God is omnipotent? And how can free will exist if God is omniscient?
God created evil, which is why it exist. Free will doesn't exist because god is all powerful.
What are your thoughts?
It has been brought up that a Messenger may only be delusional when they make a claim that they bring a Message from God.
So let's tell a story of how these things unfold and in the end there is only two stances we can justly take, it is either the Truth, or it is false and delusional. I will...
Being a follower of Hinduism, the first thing I would do (as a personal God) is end the endless cycle of karma (cause and effect). No more suffering for lives after lives for one bad deed committed in ignorance.
I will also do some tweaking to Maya/illusion. I'll remove Maya's 'tamas'...
I want to propose an idea where God is neither male nor female. Rather he is the perfect combination of both Here are the supporting arguments from the Bible: Genesis 1: 26-27
26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the...
"God is Spirit" (says Bible)
"The satan is evil spirit" (says Church)
I simply put these two dogmas together. The result: satan is god. Any fallen angel is no longer angel, but the devil. Why? Because Absolute Good can not create Absolute Evil. Otherwise, only Absolute Evil exists...
I just can't believe it. o_O
How does a person believe in something for which they have no evidence?
How can one just believe in a god, when they have absolutely no evidence?
I don't get it. :confused:
To me, that's like one standing on the edge of a mountain, without any glider, singing, "I...
1. If there are two possible worlds, one where only a perfect god exists who lacks for nothing, and another one that contains this god and also sin, corruption, non-believers, and infinite suffering, which world do you think is better? Why would a god create this way, rather than just choose not...
If something feels distasteful to extremes, then that something is certainly wrong. Hear your heart!
I have no conflicts with the seven Church Councils. I am not a heretic. I speak for my Church. The highest authority in Eastern Orthodox Christianity is the first seven Church Councils.
I can not...
Me: "In how many years will people get better? Definition: getting closer to God than satan is to become better."
Satanist: "Why did you decide that God is a positive character ??? Have you read the Bible ??? Genocide, murder - this is all from His business. If the Devil exists, then I am on...
You are not tolerant of a humble theist like me. Please be more tolerant. Please do not report the thread to authorities. Please, please, please. I have added the videos because my friends in Homeland do like my posts if they are with some illustrations. Excuse me for hurting your...
Dr. Richard Dawkins in a religious movie [Expelled: No Intelligence
Allowed] said something like this: ``I am atheist because there is no
proof that God exists." I believe it is incomplete, so, let me try to read
between the lines: ``I am atheist because there is no [globally accepted]
Personally I doubt there was a time when the material universe did not exist in some form, even if if only as a singularity.
But let's assume that there was a time when God created the material universe and all that is in it.
If such a thing was created by an all-knowing creator, then I would...
I believe that Jesus will most likely appear in 2033 at the latest. The reason why I am now sure that Jesus will come in this time period is because of Genesis 1. When we look at this chapter we realize that much of the creation days are meant metaphorically, or how could plants and water exist...
Then God said, Let Us make mankind in Our image.
Remember also your Creators in the days of your youth.
For your husbands are your Makers, Whose name is Yahweh of armies.
In most Bible translations the singular form is used, but this is not correct...
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
10 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions.
2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very...
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...
Matthew 22 reads and I quote:
22 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
