"Yet this eternal voice of reason changes his mind often."
I think to myself sometimes, "if this were my last minute alive, what would I want to do?" If you wanna be petty and try to teach someone a lesson they don't know they're being taught, the only person you're hurting is yourself...I'm also typing that to myself, to remind myself not to be so petty sometimes.
Nope. That was not Wisdom. That was just human life lived as everybody lived it in those days. Savage. But God steadily upgraded society until today. And now we can speak to the last remains of slavery. And we can put in its place Wisdom.
How did it work for him? What would have happened had he obeyed? Is a "tempting piece of fruit" worth the trade off? ig you offered me a bag with lot of $ in it but asked me to not do one exceptionally simple thing, I think I would show my gratitude by simply not doing it - especially when I have everything else?
Diana wore the Spencer tiara, that is not the one Meghan is wearing. Hers is a different one.
God belief downgrades everything. The happiest and most well off nations are the nations that are the most secular. Contrasting that the most religious nations are the broke, stinking s-holes the president was talking about. Yes let's just ban all religious people from entering the country. We have enough idiots here all ready.
Drug dealers need to listen to Han Solo.
"both parties must be willing to change their views, and not be close-minded." Presumes that both parties are wrong.
Which doesn't mean that he's more likely to be healthy than unhealthy due to it.
Oh yes, the NT is where eternal fire, torture, and damnation are introduced. Like what kind of a monster would require eternal torture for any crime. My statement stands. You cannot get rational moral codes from the Bible without cheery picking, making the Bible a horrible place to base morals from.
I do think social media/the internet is an integral part of the loss of impulse control, though. Gone are the days of "You're only tough when you're behind a keyboard!" and the kids that aren't really 'tough' are grabbing equalizers in the form of firearms. We're getting so used to saying exactly what's on our mind -- often without thinking about it -- that we've lost touch with basic concepts of propriety, class, respect, etc.
What? Jesus was not crucified by Jews for blasphemy. He was crucified by Romans.
No, though you apparently have a need for a god, the idea that everyone does is just silly projection.
Caps, because Vegas is a fraud team. the NHL rigged the draft so Vegas was basically allowed to start of with a #1 goalie and a team of players that would be at least on the second line of any other NHL team.
Angels were Jewish??? LOL
The breath was symbolic for the spirit/soul. That happens at conception.
From God Himself and then also other Brothers and Sisters who heard from God Himself. We teach One another from what our Father teaches Us.
So, then, Trump settled the fraud lawsuit over Trump U because "he did it, dumbass." Right? And he paid off Daniels because he did it.
Yes, people pay taxes. But the best welfare is with the private sector. Government welfare is destructive and malevolent.
It's because naturalism, relativism, and atheism themselves are all self-defeating. So rather than trying to ascertain logic for their own belief and religion (because inside they probably know they can't), atheists would prefer, it seems, to try and pick apart other world views. To make their task even easier, they tend to prey on Christianity as it poses the least amount of danger to them. Richard Dawkins once responded to a question from one of his faithful followers who asked him how they should respond to the religious, he advised his followers to mock and ridicule them. On another occasion, I heard someone respond to Dawkins instruction by advising him to try his advised response in Saudi Arabia; my guess is he won't.
Magic, being quite distinguished from being slight of hand, is real. Demons and spirits that are behind these things aren?t figments of the imagination.
Careful. TUS is watching you.
Can you provide link to that information? And explain how that proves any thing?
No, no. Before I even giggle at your silly assed demand that I engage in alternate history story telling, back up. Give me a citation showing that Romans refused to speak Greek or use Greek script during the 3rd century CE. Just because Plutarch stated in the 2nd c. that 'all men use Latin' doesn't mean they refused to learn any other language. Nor does it imply that xenophobia was the reason for the split. Honestly, I'm quite surprised you'd make such an obviously absurd statement, given that Rome's multiculturalism makes it very difficult to discern the extent of any given language at that time in various parts of the Empire. Greek certainly became the primary language in the Eastern Orthodox Empire. That's not the same as 'People in the West refused to speak Greek and use Greek script.' No, sweetie. You're out on a limb and you know it. Why else ask me to engage in such a fatuous exercise?
Do you prefer tea as well? That seems to be my go to for hot beverages.
If Jesus wasn't everything that Christianity says he was there is no reason to care whether he existed or not.
