This would seem to be applicable to the internet in particular. Peter predicted militant atheist internet trolls: First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since...

I am a Republican and a Christian (Lutheran), but I support same-sex marriage, and don't think homosexuality is an "abomination", mainly due to the debate over whether or not people are "born" with a certain sexual orientation. Well... It's like I said in my other post on the subject. You could mak...

Speaking as a Christian conservative, I once held the opinion, as many of my peers continue to do, that homosexuality is a choice and having nothing to do with genetics. I've not changed my position on this so much as I've revised it. Because of the ties of what may be "unnatural" sex, homosexualit...

The massive attack on the RC church these days reminds of the Nazi-strategy: blaming an entire religion and group of people for the mistakes some of them made. I can only assume that this poster is somehow an agent of the Vatican. The facts of the Vatican covering up many cases of priesthood pedera...

I certainly will if I ever hear about it. I doubt that will ever happen, though, since the ravages of time I'm sure have taken their toll. Looks like mummification was lost with the ancient Egyptians, or it was unique to the North African climate. I don't personally have any need for Solomon's bone...

I am a Christian and really want to be able to go to church but it just isn't happening. It is to loud, to bright, to many people touching me, to much moving around, to many expectations, to many places where I am supposed to talk, and the list goes on and on. Then there are the issues of hypocrisy...

Ruveyn, you say NOTHING is verifiable. Even I have to admit some things simply have to be taken on faith. But NOTHING? The OT isn't alone in its historical account of figures such as King David and King Solomon. Archeology even affirms that. There is no extra-biblical documentation showing the exis...

This character Sand they keep shoving into the site seems a bit too abrasive to last too long. I have a hunch they might readjust him to become a born again Christian just to calm things down but I personally will be sorry to see him move in that direction. Are you kidding? That would be great! :wt...

I'll say it again: If the Bible is false, then there's no point to discussion. But since the Bible has proven to be verifiable Utter nonsense. The bible is essentially a book of homilies and bronze age fairy-tales. There is nothing verifiable about it. In fact if you take it seriously and literally...

How in earth can you know that the writers of the bible were able to preserve the intented meaning? How do you know at all what the intended meaning is? I take it you "know" the intended meaning because that's what you read from the bible... but if that was not the real thing how the heck are you s...

When I was in college, I didn't really "do" the bar/club scene. But in Mississippi, the bar/club scene is one of the last remnants of the racial/culture divide, so suffice it to say it never would have been in my best interest or safety to hang out in one. I didn't mind most bars. Bars were more for...

Anyone can take scripture and twist it to suit one's one purpose. Writers of the New Testament were knowledgeable of the spirit of OT teachings and were careful to preserve the intended meaning. No they weren't. Can you support that statement? I've already listed passages from three distinctly diff...

Using the Bible to protect women would also reflect bias. How? It would reflect a bias in favour of protecting women. The other way would reflect a bias against protecting women. Whatever one's point of view, it is extremely easy to find a few passages here and there to support one's point of view....
