Wrong. There are no verses that support your statement. Please notice he said "until heaven and Earth pass away". Now I don't know about heaven, but Earth definitely has not passed away.
You are starting to grasp. Keep trying.
That means that Jesus will fulfill the prophecies of the OT with His death, burial, and resurrection (prophecy fulfilled)

The OT prophecied to the first coming of Jesus Christ and He came (prophecy fulfilled)

PLUS...

The heavens and earth will not pass away until all OT prophecies are fulfilled thru the Book of Revelation. If you read Daniel, Isaiah, and other OT books where the Prophets have visions & knowledge given to them from God, you can match up many of those to the happenings in Revelation, the last book of the NT, the end time prophecies.


In Revelation, Jesus is the judge and jury and has control over these activities that come before the earth and heavens pass away.

This is real Dude. Repent and invite Jesus into your heart and life and you can have a home that will last forever on an Earth that is much better than this one. Just believe Jesus and he can forgive even you. Think about it please.

I can understand belief in God. I can find wisdom in the Bible. But I don't understand people like you. You want to repeat history, but you aren't intelligent enough to realize it.

You might want to get into a good psychotherapy group.

Expanding.
You could call it weird, I find it considerably less fantastical than most of the creation myths. You think that the entire universe was created so that sheep herders could worship God from a near infinitely obscure ball of dirt? You have no concept of scale whatsoever.
Weird!

You talk about sheep herders and leave off the wise men who left their rich palaces to ride for months or even years on camels to worship God.

Not slanted at all. NOT.

Okay, so you're just one of those insane conspiracy nuts who are also christian. More than gullible, in other words, you just want to make it all up yourself.

I was merely refuting the statement, "No scientist goes around saying "evolution disproves god."
That is clearly not the case.
Which I actually agree with you on.
Science, including the Theory of Evolution makes NO claim on the viability -- or lack thereof -- for a Supreme Being.

Sorry Timn. HTS is correct on this one.

Which renders your previous post an opinion stated by one man.

OTHER men, with equal scientific credentials, make similarly compelling statements expressing THEIR opinion about THEIR belief in a Christian God.

Which means you WOULD agree that there are a great many pious Christians (and folks of other faiths) that *DO* reconcile the Theory of Evolution with their faith.

Right?

Yes, but in so doing they are effectively denying either one of two things:

1. If they believe that only mutations and natural selection account for all life, they are denying that God directed the creation.
2. If they believe that God directed the transmutation of species, then they deny the proposed mechanisms of evolution as sufficient to explain life.

YOU talk about slanted? ROFL!!! Failure? I'll bet you even think the entire globe was flooded 4,500 years ago.
You jumped a few thousand years between Genesis day one and year one AD. The Magi are absolutely irrelevant, Failure. I said creation mythS are weird - plural, not just the Abrahamic one.
BTW, humans domesticated sheep 10,000 years ago and we are still herding them - and still on the same obscure ball of mud, except now we have quads and dirt bikes.

Is there any shred of evidence outside of the Bible for a flood that submerged the mountains under the entire heavens? Nope. Is there any shred of evidence in the diversification of the biosphere that indicates a global genetic bottleneck within the history of man? Nope. Is there any shred of evidence that all of mankind except for 4 related couples was eliminated 4,300+/- years ago? Nope.

I am not a Christian. Christianity is idolatry and the purest form of Satan worship. Thru Jesus, Satan is worshipped as God, and that's all Satan (Adam) ever wanted. And you could say I do make things up. Most of my doctrine and theology is original, nobody has taught me. I am the author of the OT which is all made up and has a source and beginning. It's called creativity.

You're wrong and you know it, you're trying to deceive. I suggest you re evaluate your sources and try to tell the truth. It's really not that hard. Have you never heard that they found the ark exactly where the bible said it is, Mount Ararat?

Jim Jones was a deranged, delusional, lunatic. He murdered a lot of innocent people. There have been a lot of Messiah wannabes, I can't figure out what draws people to them, the real Messiah is a woman but is not interested in starting a cult. She did that thousands of years ago with the family of Abraham. But the Messiah is a "voice crying in the wilderness" and is travailing in childbirth.

Right...
Meanwhile, there is fact and CONCLUSIVE evidence. Cities that have been continuously occupied, no complete collapse of the oxygen producing flora, consistent genetic diversity among every species (including man), tree ring data, complete lack of sedimentary evidence and salt water intrusions, deserts that have not seen significant rainfall in thousands of years - the lists go on and on. I'm sorry lady, the truth is NOT my fault.

Just so we're on the same page, you know I don't believe the flood was worldwide, it was a vast but local flood and it's purpose was to kill mankind. People were confined to the middle east and fertile crescent.
