Thousands Protest Roe V. Wade Decision

This argument again? I've fallen into a Red Herring once already. First you ask me to separate the three religions (Hardly relevant to the argument), now you ask me to defend the Christian faith and the idea of God. Why don't we just leave it at Pascals Wager? "Allah simply translates to "God." - How else would you like me to distinguish between the Christian God and the Islamic God? The argument would look rather ridiculous had I not used the name given to Him by the Islamic faith. The God of Islam, the God of Christianity, and the God of Judaism are not believed to be the same God. I explained this already in my previous post. He is supposed to be a father figure; as a supernatural deity he is genderless. If God had a gender he would be subject to the whims and desires of the flesh, much like the Gods of Ancient Greece. If he were to have these mortal qualities, could we not then assume he has original sin as well? If God were subject to sin, then he would no longer be God, for God is omnibenevolent and can commit no evil. "The Biblical quote you presented has an inherent contradiction: John 17:3, "And this life is eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." This passage provides a clear delineation between "God," and "Jesus Christ, whom was SENT by God." - This quote clearly states that through Jesus Christ we are able to know God. Jesus is not considered "God the Father", rather, he is "God the Son". "If God is an all-knowing, all-powerful being, he'd have no need whatsoever to create a Messiah, Christ, or Mahdi to "redeem" mankind." - He most certainly did have the need to "create" a Messiah. A perfect sacrifice was necessary to "redeem" mankind. Forgiveness of sin cannot exist unless He who is capable of forgiving sin sheds His blood. If you recall, the Sacrament of Penance did not exist before the coming of Jesus Christ. Omnipotence does not include being able to do things that are, by definition, impossible. "The whole "freewill " argument is a cop-out; what's the point of giving your "greatest creation" the "gift" of Freewill if you already know how they're going to choose? It doesn't make any sense." This is the second time you've said "It doesn't make any sense". The definition of cop out does not agree with the argument over "Free Will". A cop out is "An instance of avoiding a commitment or responsibility ", the argument over Free Will does not avoid a commitment or responsibility, on the contrary, it forces us, as human beings, to take responsibility for our own actions rather than blame them on other beings. You are in essence promoting the idea of Fatalism. Fatalism argues that all events are inevitable and man is powerless to alter his destiny. Fatalism, however, does not adhere to the five criteria of a theory. Fatalism is not empirically sound, morally justifiable; it does not cohere with moral experience or provide guidance for your behavior, and it is not logically valid. According to the fatalist theory, free will cannot exist since our fates are already decided for us, and it cannot be altered. I hope I don't need to explain why this is.  (Aug 6, 2011 | post #185133)

The proof that the Christian God is genderless? The Islamic God "Allah" and the Christian God differ in many ways. I'll try and summarize just a few. Allah is supposedly "Unknowable ", in the Islamic religion it is considered blasphemy to claim that you are able to "know" God. - "The end result of the knowledge of the `arifin is their inability to know Him, and their knowledge is, in truth, that they do not know Him and that it is absolutely impossible for them to know Him." In Christianity God is "Knowable ", you are able to know God, love God, and serve God. You have a very personal relationship with your creator. - "John 17:3 "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." Allah is also supposed to be highly exalted above mortals and it is said that he would have nothing to do with man. According to Islam, Allah would never take the form of a human being and certainly would not allow himself to be killed due to the afore mentioned reason. The disconnect between Allah and his supposed creations also eliminates any idea of moral right and wrong. Existence becomes merely metaphysical, man exists solely because nature exists. In Christianity God took the form of man to die for the sins of humanity. God created man to love and serve Him while on Earth and eventually attain Heaven. To guide his flock he gave Moses the Ten Commandments, he gave Christians the power of prayer so that they may be connected to Him at all times, and through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass He gives His own body, blood, soul, and divinity to those in the state of Grace. In Judaism God does not consist of a Trinity, they believe God is one substance and one person. They believe that Jesus was a "False Prophet" and was not the Son of God. In addition to this, they believe that Mary did not have a Virgin Birth (Because God supposedly had no Son), they do not believe Jesus was resurrected or will come again, they believe there are two equal "Impulses " both Good and Bad, there is no original sin, and to gain Heaven you have to believe in God and commit acts of kindness/charity. I don't think I need to point out the differences here.  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #184986)

Ah, there's that Ad Hominem abusive. You don't have to be a physician to tell if a woman is a virgin or not. Her husband would have checked her, since he obviously had nothing to do with her pregnancy. It's more basic than a "Hymen check". During this period when a husband was suspicious of his wife all he had to do was check her bed sheets, clothes etc...for blood. I hope I don't need to explain why this is.  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #184959)

We're specifically talking about the Christian faith....I believe I've added more than just Bible quotes.  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #184935)

Yes, it is a biological fact that she was still a virgin. Adultery was punishable by death, you don't think someone at some point checked to see if she was still a virgin?  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #184932)

It IS a proven fact that Mary was a Virgin. Adultery was punishable by death, you don't think that someone at some point investigated her claims?  (Aug 4, 2011 | post #184372)

Anglican/Episcopal - Anglicans believe Jesus was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. Assembly of God - Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. Baptist - Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth Lutheran - Jesus was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. Methodist - Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. Roman Catholic - From conception, Mary was without original sin (Immaculate Conception). Mary is the "Mother of God." Mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus, when she gave birth, and remained a virgin throughout her life. Those are the beliefs of all major Christian denominations. According to their beliefs, Mary was a Virgin when she gave birth to Jesus. Even back then you could tell if a woman was a Virgin or not. Simple Biology.  (Aug 3, 2011 | post #184130)

Mary was not a "servent " (Servant). God is an omnibenevolent being, (I.e., He is ALL good) if a being is all good, he can commit no evil. Thus, if Mary did not want to have Jesus, she would have/could have said "No" without consequence.  (Aug 3, 2011 | post #184129)

It's not a question of "ease", you claimed that Mary was "forced" to have Jesus. The excerpt I posted from the Bible clearly denounces such a claim.  (Aug 3, 2011 | post #184128)
