SaintNow is claiming to be a Christian, and is (sort of) preaching "salvation". He routinely resorts to insults while discussing theological issues on this site. He is defending the most inattractive version of Biblical literalism, and his behaviour here does not even remotely resemble that of a Christian. Last but not least, he supported the "Yes, Hitler was a good man" side in this debate:http://www.createdebate.com/debate/show/Was_Hitler_actually_a_good_guy_who_was_perpetrated_as_evil_by_allied_WW2_propagandaActually, it was because of his contribution that the pro-Hitler side prevailed in that debate.This guy is doing his best to turn as many people away from Christianity as possible.
The justification for why God exists usually is based on everything had to come from somewhere. And when anyone proposes any answer other than God it gets dismissed as inferior to the God explanation. But then where did God come from? And before you say simply he always was, realize the cyclical reasoning at play there. Something else could not have have existed forever, but yes God could. Could there not be a creator of God(s)? Could there not be a time or place or alternate reality where some sort of megaGod made the God you know? Why does this anomaly of God's origin get a free pass on explanation?
Any answer to this question other than "no" is a lie. You can't prove that you are not a sinner, and you can't prove that you have the right as a sinner to exist outside of Hell. You can believe you have the right to exist outside of Hell as a sinner, but that seems kinda silly since God may end your time at any moment proving you don't even have the right to live as a sinner. If anybody is concerned about where they are going and wants to be saved, ya'll know I"ll be more than happy to tell you about the Savior who will save you now if you will trust Him. I expect mostly junk I don't care to read here, so I'll be staying away from here for a while.
I often hear that the "Big Bang" is a brilliant theory and is based on sound scientific arguments.Closer examination of the premises and experimental data which form the basis of this hypothesis, shows that it's so full of holes there's hardly any theory left in it.There are many people on this site, that are convinced we live in an expanding universe. Please post your reasons for thinking so.Note: "Some clever guy said so and I believe him" is not a valid scientific argument.
Seriously, if your truth is beyond question, whether it be from God or your political position or your fields of study, then for absolutely any question the opponent may ask you should have a reasonable reply to make. Banning them and walking away proves the opposite -- that you don't have the answer. And saying replying is a waste of time is already irrelevant, because you chose to launch a debate on a debate website, you already chose to waste your time on the web.
Burn marks on toast, condensation on windows, deformations on trees, may be interpreted by the religious as images of Mary or Jesus and may inspire visitors and pilgrimages by those who call them miracles. Are they?
Read the article below for proof on this matter. I already knew that homosexuality isn't genetic in the first place. Just wanted to share it here to the people who think people are born gay.
keep the language mild, please....if you want to insult me, try to do it with signs of intelligence in your speech. Swearing is the attempt of a weak mind to express itself forcefully. Use your brain, please, especially the part God gave you for language.~~~Saintnow
The youngest children who are still learning to read, write, add, etc, may be focusing on skills the average adult can probably provide. But more complex subjects in high school, from advanced mathematics to chemistry to essay composition, are more specialized skills.
Hypothetically, let's say Satan were to apologize, cease all evil ways, turn hell into an amusement park, and become the model Christian, and then God forgave him. Could you? If he went from fallen angel to angel could you accept him as such?
PayPal does business in nations with terrible treatment towards Gays but N.C they ban?
These political correct hypocrite companies playing politics, choose to do business in nations with terrible human right's violations toward Gays, women, etc. yet they feel the need to threaten North Carolina which is simply trying to protect women's privacy in their public dressing rooms..."PayPal's international headquarters are located in Singapore, where sexual contact between males is punishable by up to two years in prison, and even littering can be punished by flogging. The company has a software development center in Chennai, India, where same-sex marriage is prohibited.“They’ve got a political agenda that they’re trying to push in the U.S. But it definitely does not line up with what their actions are saying around the world in places like Malaysia and others,” Mr. Sharp said.Apple is among the other major corporations that have taken to the pulpit to lecture North Carolina for its sins despite doing business with anti-gay foreign regimes. CEO Tim Cook was one of several high-profile tech CEOs who signed a letter to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory calling on him to repeal the legislation.But, as Mr. Sharp points out, that has not stopped Apple from opening stores in Saudi Arabia, where gay people are regularly executed in public and cross-dressing is also a criminal offense. Pro-gay and trans advocacy are illegal, as is every religion except Islam.“We’ve seen the same thing with Apple and some of these other companies that are fine doing business in Saudi Arabia and other countries that are extremely oppressive of the LGBT community,” Mr. Sharp said.“PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina Legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in to the women’s bathroom?” said Mr. Pittenger, a Republican, in a statement. “Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position.”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/apr/7/paypal-apple-lecture-north-carolina-do-business-in/-FromWithin
Jesus ChristRighteous Dead Dude Who Walked on WaterIf Jesus died for our sins, wouldn't this include "sins" we have yet to commit? If so, don't we have carte blanche to go live it up, without restraint and without consequences?
Flipside of the sent his son scenario. So if the daughter was to understand what it's like to live as a human, and a woman, and then to die for our sins, then how does that play out? In the crucifixion would she have to be raped repeatedly to understand that form of suffering? And would she spend her life denegrated and subservient to the men around her, or superior as the daughter of God? And would she need to go through giving birth to a child to understand that part of life, and if so then would she be a virgin pregnancy like her mom or would God's daughter actually need to have sex to understand that experience, too? And if this whole scenario is folly, then why was sending a male son important but sending a female daughter so irrelevant? And finally, would this make a holy quadrangle instead of a holy trinity?
