Why did many fail to enter into God's rest anciently. And to whom sware He that they should not enter into His rest but to them that believed not.So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.Hebrews 3:18&19

That's very helpful, Whispers. Thanks.

What did Caleb say of the ability of Israel to take it.
Let us go up at once and posses it;for we are well able to overcome it.Numbers 13:30
There's food for thought.

Now I understand why Hick-up said that this thread went from interesting to boring when it was no longer all Christian.

@ Hick-up: Sorry, man. You were obviously correct, brother. Let me pray for you, and be blessed, will ya?

O_o

The statistical analysis and census records of the last 50 years that you didn't list?

Try to understand - MrChar's visit to Germany was in question, not Germany itself.
His experience in Germany is in his mind, his memories.
He can't prove his experience or his memories to anyone, ever. Especially on Topix.
Although unlikely, it's possible that his trip to Germany is all in his mind.
So ask MrChar to prove what's in his mind, something non physical that nobody could prove.

Exactly Riverside Redneck. Exactly. You knew where I was going, but you were way ahead of me.

It is more likely that in the USA, Christians will be doing the killing.... again.
Not the true Christians. They are too busy with things like feeding the hungry clothing the naked and preaching the gospel. As long as God gives me breath I will stand up for the cause of Christ. I won't shut up. Deal with it.

It says the world is disc shaped, covered by a star filled dome along with other concepts popular in the imagined and primitive cosmology of ancient man.

Oops. Yes, you're right. I meant 2nd millennium, not century.
And Genesis dates back to the 6th millennium.
What do you base your claim on that Genesis dates to the 6th millennium?

I never implied that neuroscience is any kind of belief, just that reading a neuroscience book does not make one an expert at it - or even a layman.
The same goes for those who have just 'read' the bible.
How much have you read the bible? How many times have you read the bible, star to finish, for instance?

Do you have a problem with the word "religion"? A lot more Christians seem to these days. It's become a dirty word - something people distance themselves from even when it applies to them.

I don't come to the same conclusions you do. To do so would following blindly and being trained.
Then you think that trained thinking is a bad thing? Personal answers are not always good. Your subjective experiences can be personal, but facts about reality aren't.

Regarding Hell or the lake of fire as desribed in the Bible, your desription is not correct. I would suggest you read it again.

No single definition is correct. As with so many other biblical concepts, the language of hell theology is vague and contradictory. Whatever your opinion is, there are no scriptures that affirm it unambiguously and without contradiction elsewhere. You have no authority or basis to declare my version less correct than yours.

What don't you like about my read on hell? Are you claiming that hell is not described as a lake of fire and a place of suffering? Are you claiming that the soul is not eternal?

If someone tells you that the dirrection you are going leads to some certain place and that you should turn lest you end up there, don't blame the messenger when you end up there. Blame yourself for not turning when you were warned about the direction you were going.
OK. I'm warning you that the road you are on will lead to a wasted opportunity at an authentic life. You should turn. If you reject this advice, blame yourself.

I have no problem saying that torture is wrong.
Are souls tortured in hell?

Why would an omnipotent god torture almost every animal on earth with a flood because man was a disappointment? Why not just the men? Why would a god with the power to change his creations destroy them instead of fix them? And why if he destroyed them would he do it by drowning instead of just poofing them away like he made them?

Picture the terrified animals seeking ever higher ground as the waters rose until they could ascend no further. Then the water rose more, their eyes are bugging out in terror. It gets up to their chins as they crane their necks for precious air. Then the water goes even higher and they inhale water. They choke, sputter and drown in sheer terror.

Did you your god do that?

Maybe you don't, or maybe MisterCarrington doesn't, however, we do know that humans have hands.

Deity claims are made without any proof.

There you go again, using a non-biblical source to 'prove' your point.
This is getting old. How about a little common sense?
Say you're in the middle of a desert, k? Now look all around you, all you see is sand - in every direction, in all places. K? Look at the horizon.
It's arched, not flat.
A disc. Yeah. That is how ancient man understood it to be.

The bible depicts the "circle of the earth", nowhere does it say disc shaped.

Thanks for linking to a source that even further negates the possibility of a "In the beginning" deity created universe.

<quoted text> Greeting again Irrira. your post didn't so much escape me as I simply didn't read all of your link, I still don't agree that people are really born into being gay in that manner, and I realize the hardship that they must have had in growing up feeling differently than other children in their gender groups, and didn't understand themselves why they felt so differently than other boys or girls, probably being picked on, ridiculed and persecuted mercilessly, that must have felt like pure hell, many children have gone through such who was not gay in any manner, but for simply being a little different in terms of being shy around others, quiet and not very talkative and not being as athletic as other kids and so not so good at team sports and no one wanted them on their team, they were separated from other kids because no one wanted to be their friend and they became outcasts.
And where some came into the very earliest ages of acquiring that gay spirit, many for the reasons stated above found that the gay groups were the only minority group that would accept them as they were, and so they bought into that lifestyle and sexual regime through being accepted by that group as opposed to being rejected by all others.
Sad and tragic true..........but I still know that God is a deliverer and a healer of all things, and still maintain that he can deliver one from this sin disease for whosoever wants to be delivered.
