This has always fascinated me, dinosaurs that is. Many christians have told me satan put those (fossils) there to confuse us. I disagree, I believe satan is only at fault for the doubt of the timeline and of the divine existence of the Lord in general. I also believe the Dino's walked among us and must've been one awesome sight to see.
The global flood, many skeptics say to me "Where did the waters go?" and "Why did God kill all humanity except Noah's family?" and "That can't be what caused...
This comes under apologetics because it's one defence of our faith that we can use against people who argue against it. One argument that I have always heard is why didn't God destroy Satan?
If I were an apologist, my reply would be simple. Satan does not exist. Nowhere in the Old Testament is Satan (as we know him today) ever mentioned. If you want to show me to be wrong, please post one verse at a time and let me deal with each. Otherwise it can lead to a lot of confusion.
My stand is...
It seems miraculous that people in India, Egypt, Russia, Romania, Italy, etc., would all accept a religion rooted in Judaism, especially when they had their own preferred culture that normally would have taken precedence over foreign influences.
...It seems impossible! What happened?
Do Catholics believe this?
I encountered some Catholics on another discussion forum who said that it would have been. Since the Bible describes marriage as sacred and having congress within it to be non-sinful-I don't get it.
To me it would have made no difference since I consider the conception immaculate in either case. Perhaps it is the definition of what the word immaculate means to many.
I was taught that immaculate conception in relation to Jesus meant that Adamic sin was not permitted to be part of his DNA. In short, he was genetically spotless as required.
Yes, I was taught that Mary was a virgin when she conceived. Nevertheless, it was he overpowering of the holy spirit which was emphasized and nothing...
It seems Protestants these days tend to have more of a Calvinist bent than a Lutheran one. So what's the general consensus on Martin Luther?
Here are some quotes by him.
Know that Marriage is an outward material thing like any other secular business.
But the woman is free through the divine law and cannot be compelled to suppress her carnal desires. Therefore the man ought to concede her right and give up to somebody else the wife who is his only in outward appearance.
Suppose I should...
The church never had justification by faith until Martin Luther and the reformation. And once it was believed, then everyone slowly drifted in that direction of interpretation of scripture.
This has continued in the church. Reformation -> Baptist & Methodist -> Adventist -> Finney-Moody -> Pentecost -> Apostolic
Now what has happened to me is I currently attending a modern Full-Gospel church, but also participating in an apostolic evangelist group. And even among Bible teachers I...
A Black Lives Matter rioter said: 'Rich People Got all this Money and They Ain't Tryin' to Give Us None'
The sense of entitlement is breathtaking. To think that he, or anyone else, is entitled to someone else's money is at the heart of whats wrong with the BLM movement.
