Is it true that if you swear something to God and it's not true that you automatically go to Hell no matter what?  I have heard people say that this is the case. Jesus Himself said, "Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients, 'Do not break your oath, but fulfill your vows to the L...

Evolution is the alternative to creation. If the Earth didn't originate through creation, it formed through evolution which makes less sense

What do you think of people who sneer at the mere suggestion that humans, monkeys, and apes may have had a common ape-like ancestor, but who seem to feel a sense of pride in believing that the first human was created from a handful of dirt?
