Its evident there's tension and anger..I can even see it cross over into the forums.
I think one obvious step is to of course hear each other out and make an effort to understand each person's point of view. However, the problem with that is that things can get heated really quickly and just deter from the intended goal.
Equality is what everyone is obviously crying from their soul, from whites concerning proper news coverage when it comes to black on white crimes..or just crimes...
This is not going to be some long winded word game. It is easy.
1) God's Word is True, incontrovertibly true.
2) Scripture is God's Word.
3) Scripture is incontrovertibly true.
4) Prove another source of incontrovertible truth.
5) No other physical source of incontrovertible truth on earth has been proven.
By default, there is only Sola Scriptura.
Yes, there have been multiple threads on SS. The problem is that all the attacks on SS put the burden to prove there are no other...
So the concept of Sola Scriptura, which I shall reference as SS from now on, has been in debate here for the past few days it seems. After reading and watching and debating on a few threads myself, I decided to make a new thread in regards to the issues with this concept.
This will be a long post, please read entirely before responding
First, here is the definition of SS: is a Christian theological doctrine which holds that the Christian Scriptures are the supreme authority in all matters...
In another thread a comment was made that "homosexuals, porn stars and druggies" will not go to heaven, but those people who are called "Bible thumpers" will be there.
My response to that statement was as follows:
"All those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, who have confessed their sins and repented will be in heaven. Yes, that will include many "homosexuals, porn stars and druggies." And yes, many self-righteous "Bible thumpers," those who might proclaim Jesus with their...
The pope seems to think so
I'm no expert interpreter of the Bible, or a novice at that lol.
But it seems the bible also eludes to it.
Matthew 25:31-46 the sheep and the goats
But we get verses like
Psalm 14 A fool says in his heart there is no God
Then again we get
But also verses like
People would argue that to believe in Jesus is to do the will of the Father,...
Since we were discussing "judging" others:
A man who is a convicted of molesting a child was paroled and took up residence
in a middle class neighborhood.
Residents learned of his background was were extremely upset that the molester
was living near children.
Is this "judging" or is this good sense?
After some posts I will reveal what, if anything, happened.
Let me add that a convicted child molester was interviewed some years ago
on a t-v talk show and he said men who molest children NEVER...
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco on August 23 upheld California’s wildly controversial Senate Bill 1172 that bars licensed counselors — including pastors — from assisting youth who want to change or reduce their same-sex attractions. The law also prohibits any counseling that would steer youth away from gender confusion. [...]
According to the law, “California has a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of minors,...
It seems that every time someone tries to point out the 'truth', inevitably someone else comes along and accuses them of 'false judgment'.
The Bible does NOT teach us 'not to judge'. It teaches us not to 'falsely judge'. In fact, the Bible teaches us to 'judge all things' according to 'righteousness' or 'truth'.
So where does this insistence come from when some insist that we are 'not to judge'?
It originated with the 'churches' that were not teaching the 'truth'. They didn't want the...
Sola Scriptura is overrated, the first christians didn't need it so neither do we.
