If you believe in Noah's Ark, you are a certifiable moron

The thing I know is that neither wisdom or intelligence will provide the faith needed to submit to God. What I was trying to point out is that God does not value men's wisdom. I think God's description of intelligence is different from mans'. If my answer was insufficient for you, I'm sorry, but it was my best effort.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #95)

Do you believe in the Perpetual Virginity of Mary?

As I posted in another thread. The NT canon of both protestants and catholics is the same. AFAIK. The Protevangelion, written by James, was existant and discounted by the early church leaders. If there was any validity in the assertion of Mary's post-incarnaton virginity, those same leaders would have at some time included it in canon. It was not until St. Augustine, that any mention of Mary's virginity is incorporated in Catholic lore. This occured in a sermon around 400AD, and never justified by any scriptural reference. The heresy of the catholic church is in using scripture to certify apochryha, instead of using ancient writings to certify the scripture. In doing so, they have developed sacraments to superceed scripture, and lost sight of Jesus in deference to Mary.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #72)

But that is what it is used for, because it was revealed to Moses, and he scripted it, and through its message we are able to learn more about God's attribute of protection and justice. Without it, man would not know that there are both absolutes and justice that proceed from God. Everything would then be open for debate and all things would be relative, because man's logic is always changing. John  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #89)

Hi Alphabet, here's my opinion: There are two different issues involved here. First, is the case of God's omniscience. Since he knows who will and will not choose to follow him, he deals with the unsaved and elect differently. Jesus spoke in parables so the nonbelievers could not understand the message, there are intelligent people in both camps, but the message of the gospel is foolishness to the nonelect. God uses faith as the entrance fee to heaven, and initially gives all men sufficient faith to accept the salvation gift. But if man neglects his faith, or misdirects it, regardless of his intelligence, he will not accept christ. That is what Paul was writing to the Corinthians. After salvation,(accepta nce of Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior) we have the assistance of the Holy Spirit to reveal and enable discernment of scripture and to assist our desire to aspire to behaviors which emulate Christ. This is the true wisdom as God understands wisdom. So we have the ability to be wise through faith from our conception, but to God, man's wisdom is anything but.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #88)

18The message about the cross doesn't make any sense to lost people. But for those of us who are being saved, it is God's power at work. 19As God says in the Scriptures, "I will destroy the wisdom of all who claim to be wise. I will confuse those who think they know so much." 20What happened to those wise people? What happened to those experts in the Scriptures? What happened to the ones who think they have all the answers? Didn't God show that the wisdom of this world is foolish? 21God was wise and decided not to let the people of this world use their wisdom to learn about him. Instead, God chose to save only those who believe the foolish message we preach. 22Jews ask for miracles, and Greeks want something that sounds wise. 23But we preach that Christ was nailed to a cross. Most Jews have problems with this, and most Gentiles think it is foolish. 24Our message is God's power and wisdom for the Jews and the Greeks that he has chosen. 25Even when God is foolish, he is wiser than everyone else, and even when God is weak, he is stronger than everyone 1 Cor 1:18-25 John  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #81)

Arson suspected in fire at Palin's church

You're saying it is ok because it is a church that was burnt, or just because it causes misery? Your morality sure seems to be in good shape.  (Dec 16, 2008 | post #3)

israeli terrorism on america

Israel is God's chosen race, it was they that God chose to carry His message to the world. The prophets, then Jesus, were all Jewish. The word the prophets carried, one of acknowledging and obeying God, has not changed since the beginning, so the testaments stand united in the promises of God to the Jews. Israel was entrusted with the Law, abeit contorted by men, the law stood to identify and convict the nation of sin, for without the knowledge of what sin was, repentance could not occur. The Israli prophets announced the promise of the messiah and the conditions of his arrival, that Jesus fulfilled. Christians look back to the old testament and see God's promises that were fulfilled in Jesus. Scripture records God's protection for the Israeli nation that will last until the new Jerusalem becomes earthly. Jesus stated that the nations will be judged for their treatment of Israel. The nation has historically suffered for their disobedience, but still stands as a beacon for the God they represent. So the nation, the prophets, the Law, the Son of God, are all blessed by God and their future is assured by covenant. Covenants are eternal, so Christians honor the promise that proceeds their own.  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #7)

Was Muhammad a Prophet of the Biblical God? (Very importa...

The only problem is that alla wont be there, He is a false god, being that way, since islam has been corrupted, through mohamed's idiocy. The real God, the One that initially permitted the race to exist, stands watching the heresy that is Islam. The koran is the perpetrator of the lies, being mohamed's fabrication to justify an unchosen, unblessed, race to pretend toward the status of holiness. God's initial rejection of the arabs was eternal, the nation will be permitted until armegeddon, when Jesus will eliminate the blight of those who refuse the eternal and rightful God of Christianity. No true believer needs the ranting of an islamic puppet, such as yourself, to explain Islam's version of blasphemy. There have been many corruptions of God's word attempted in the forum, and all fall victim to the truth. But especially Islam whose concepts emmanate from the rantings of a disproven, false prophet, whose writings are not worthy to be posted in an outhouse, let alone in a christian forum.  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #287)

As I explained in more polite terms previously, the only bastard race involved here is the arabs, and the only bastard religion is islam. You would have made a good pharisee, one who contorts logic to fit your religion.  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #286)

Actually, I thought a positive charge was the lack of something, like Islam is a lack of God.  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #11)
