    Poll: The Afterlife

    After doing two polls on theological beliefs, a believers/skeptics poll and a religious/spiritual poll, I am going to attempt to gauge RF's stance on the afterlife. Instead of making multiple ideas specific to one choice, I am going to divide the afterlife into many parts and allow the community...

    What is Resurrection of the dead?

    What exactly is Resurrection of the dead before the day of Judgement? Is it a physical raising of the dead bodies from their earthly graves? Or is it an etherial raising, like the soul or astral body raised from deep slumber at the time of judgement? I'm a little confused because i came...

    Anybody know where I can watch the 7-hour resurrection debate

    between Mike Licona and Bart Ehrman that took place on April 9 of this year? I cannot find it anywhere. Link would be greatly appreciated. Said link hopefully will be a free link as I don't want to pay to listen to it.

    Israel as Jesus and as Job, Resurrection Equal to Repentance

    The first account of Israel's resurrection is in the prophet Ezekiel. "Then he said to me: "Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, 'Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.' Therefore prophesy and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: My...

    What ONE critical piece of information made you decide to believe or disbelieve Jesus rose?

    For myself, I could have said * there were no eyewitnesses to the resurrection * there is no empty tomb * history doesn't record a single mention of ANY of the apostles, as if they never existed * the 4 resurrection accounts are rife with inconsistencies * the gospels were all written in...

    Which Old Testament Prophecy Fulfills Luke 24:46-47

    "He told them, "This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." I scoured the Old Testament looking for a passage(s) saying that the Messiah...

    Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus?

    The Christian claim that Jesus of Nazareth literally rose from the dead is fundamental to Christianity, but is undeniably a very radical claim. There is a certain amount of historical evidence surrounding the life of Jesus, but does the evidence support the claim that Jesus rose from the dead in...

    Why I CANNOT Believe in The Resurrection

    Notice I didn't say, "I refuse to" The point is I cannot believe in it. I watched a debate on the resurrection this morning. At some point, Matt Dillahunty came out and asked "Do you have anything outside the Bible to support the resurrection." Jonathan McLatchie answered. "NO." That's it...

    Some Qs about the JW view of Jesus and angels

    Hello JWs, Over the last few days, I've chanced upon a number of interesting quotes: "Unquestionably there is only one Almighty God, even as the apostle Paul wrote: “For even though there are those who are called ‘gods,’ whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many ‘gods’ and many...

    Believe the "first resurrection" of Christ's Millenial reign has not happened?

    Cronology of the resurrection of the unrighteous Note: All text is taken from the NIV translation for ease of understanding. This post is aimed at those who believe the "first resurrection" of Christs millenial reign has not happened. So in Revelation 1 it says, "The revelation from Jesus...

    The Resurrection of Jesus: Allegorical Story or Historical Truth?

    Most of us from a Christian background are familiar with the story of how Jesus is crucified and after three days rises from the dead. Over a period of forty days He appears to His disciples and eventually ascends through the stratosphere to be with His Father in heaven. No atheists will believe...

    The Significance of the Ascension of Jesus Christ

    Acts of the Apostles 1:9-11 records the ascension of Christ before His disciples. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them...

    Reincarnation vs Resurrection. Which is real?

    As you may well know, the concept of the afterlife in the Abrahamic and Oriental religions differ widely. Whereas one view states one life, one death, and one judgement; the other states numerous life cycles over multiple universes. Here are some scriptural basis for each religious view: 'Then...

    Resurrection & Rolling Stones

    We have 4 different accounts of the alleged resurrection. All differences can be attributed to bad memory except one: If a stone was rolled in front of the tomb, the disciples would have known of it. Why didn't they tell the women to either quit preparing embalming spices, or take some men...

    Where Do You Put Your Faith?

    Everyone wants to live and enjoy life right? Who doesn't enjoy eating an apple, or mango, or grape, or....? The things on this earth that can satisfy man, are almost endless, and the beauty about is is that we never tire of those things - They always seem fresh, and the experience always seem...

    Heaven and John the Baptist

    I was taught to believe that nobody who had died before Jesus Christ died will ever get to Heaven. It is what the Jehovah's Witnesses believe and teach. The reason why they think it is true that only people who died after Jesus died will go there is that they believe Jesus made the way there and...

    Does TaNaKh teach mistaken geology or cosmology, and does that undermine its reliability?

    Tanakh's blessed predictions about Messiah, the Messianic era, and the resurrection of the dead are very appealing. In fact, belief in Messiah and the resurrection are two of the thirteen fundamental principles of Judaism laid out by Rabbi Maimonides. Yet does the Tanakh when intentionally...
