Am I wasting my time seeking God? I am a nonpracticing homosexual. I believe in scripture that calls sin by what it is. I hate my sin. I struggle with lust, but I do not act on my lusts. Pastor Steven Anderson does not believe gays can be saved. This is sad. But I will continue pray for his mercy. But I wonder if I am wasting my time.
I think I have troubled people with Jesus words unless you eat My flesh you have no life in you to mean Protestants may never be saved or have a chance at being worthy of a reward but I have given a good reasoning for believing as orthodox we should accept Protestants. I know in my conscience it is wrong to cast doubt in Protestants ability to be saved because I may hinder the gospel for people who may even be close to death who can doubt Christianity because there are too many denominations...
Earth verses the big bang is the epic, David and Goliath battle, of God’s Creation story. God created Earth first, then the ‘Big Bang’, ‘Let There Be Light!’. Atheist scientists hate this part of God’s Creation story and disallow the thought of earth being created apart from their ‘Big Bang’. The thing is, for us, one week’s time, creationists, the way God explains it, we have two separate events. Two separate events allows for Time Dilation, big time!, in God’s Creation of everything...
The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that obedience to the commandments leads to blessings from God. He said: “There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated—and when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated” (D&C 130:20-21).

It seems to me that there was a time during which Jesus did drink alcohol. I have always heard and been taught that He didn't drink wine, but it seems He did. He would've had to drink alcohol at least once and the people saw Him and exaggerated it...
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon!’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is vindicated by...
Can you become a christian just by saying a prayer and walking forward at a crusade?
I'm asking because Im sure thats only the start of it and not even all of it. Someone I know wrote that was how she became a christian. Yet she struggles with trusting God even years later. Im just puzzled cos it was not how I was born again.
Maybe shes just having a long apprenticeship I dont know....
This "scholar" says that the early Holy Apostolic Church didn't believe in the Blessed and Most Holy Trinity but was semi-Arian and the "true church" was also pneumatomachians aka a 4th century heresy that denied the Holy Spirit was God but a force and the Blessed and Most Holy Trinity was a gnostic concept invented by the gnostic heretic named Valentinus and from pagan worship. He has a lot of sources but they're mainly from the late 19th and early 20th century.How do I debunked this? And...
Someone in another discussion seems to argue that Jesus was an unfallen human, ie was bodily Perfect as well, not just Spiritually. This made me think though, if you make this argument, shouldn't Jesus be vegetarian?
We see in Genesis that God commands Adam and Eve only to eat plants and the consumption of meat seems to be a part of the Fall. So shouldn't a perfect man then be vegetarian as well? Then again, the Israelites are permitted to eat certain meats in Leviticus. Isaiah then says...
I am a Christian now, in fact I am a rather 'fundi' Christian, but I used to be an athiest. I became atheistic and extremely skeptical of the Bible and religion at an early age... mostly because I felt I could not believe my parents nor the Church. I grew up attending a very liberal church, Methodist in denomination. They taught me that the scriptures were really a collection of early myths but taught moral truth.
I was always interested in science... I knew what a paleontologists was...
Not all the time. I'm not talking about moving to a mountaintop in Tibet and never interacting with another human being ever again.
I'm talking about having a few uninterrupted hours to myself every day. I'm working on a project that requires intense concentration. Every time I get interrupted, I lose track of what I was doing and have to focus all over again, just in time for another interruption. Yes, it's very important that I finish it. No, I can't just give up on it. Doesn't seem to...
