This is why Billy Graham abandoned politics because he knew how entangled a person can get into it. I think that line about not being president perfect and that he's defending Christian values is going to bite us all in the back soon. The funny thing is Franklin has been friends with Trump since 2011, so I have a feeling this is why he can't bring himself to criticize the man.
I invite you to discuss the main theses of an interview with an outstanding American journalist and writer Dan Brown. No emotions, only the arguments "for" or "against", please.
"Look at the story: no god has survived the development of science. In ancient times we had a whole pantheon of gods needed to explain everything we did not understand, from tides to sunrise. Over time, science intervened, and it became clear that the tides had nothing to do with Poseidon, and lightning had nothing to do with Thor. And these gods began to disappear. My novel raises the question of whether we truly believe that today's gods will survive and retain their power over people in a hundred years, five hundred years, a thousand years"....
I might as well ask you "why does the wind blow". Because you do not know.
But give me your best guess.
No poll attached to this as this forum is primarily Christian, so it would not be fair.
And, yes, I do know the answer to this question. But, I will not tell.
Last week I pretty much spend the whole week just socialising and battling with my social anxiety. and I felt comfortable in social situations and was enjoying other peoples company. but that week I didnt read my bible, pray, or anything. and I also was falling back into sinful habits of the past...but my self confidence and happyness was never better...but I eventually started to feel "cold" inside and I felt I needed to sit down and confess...even though part of me didnt want to...well...as soon as I confessed I was overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and depression....
Guys, why is it that I am happy when I forget about God?
The Question: Given The Bible, Spiritual Law, and profound Biblical based insight God has given you, why did God flood the Earth in the story of Noah, what was going on, and was what is going on measurable?
In answering this question, I am not getting into any geology as many shows or documentaries about The Flood do. I am answering the question in terms of the human condition, and what may have occurred. Books could be, and may have been written on this subject. This will be short and to the point. The audience is more someone who has a lot of Bible knowledge.
Adam and Original Sin
With Adam, sin enters the world. God is Holy and Separate from sin. Studying the Bible, we can come up with definitions of things that are clean, and how...
WASHINGTON: The US government officially shutdown today for the first time in five years after the Senate rejected a short-term spending bill to keep the federal government running, marking a chaotic end to Donald Trump's first year as president. The shutdown began at 12:01 am (local time) after a few Republicans joined Democrats in blocking the crucial measure would have provided short-term funding for the Pentagon and other federal agencies.
The United States is the largest debtor on the planet. The figure of the US sovereign debt equal to $ 20 trillion. And this is just the upper part of the iceberg. If you take into account the debts of other sectors of the economy (non-financial sector, financial sector, household sector), then...
Before you read the rest of this OP, please watch this short video in which Dr. Kenneth Miller, author of standard high school and college text books on evolution, provides a simple but compelling example of just how convincing the evidence for human evolution from lower primates really is. btw, Miller is a devout Catholic who believes in Intelligent Design!

Many Fundamentalist Christians embrace a Domino theory of Scripture and its teaching about Creation, a view that in effect teaches that we must either literally believe in a creation process in 6 24-hour days or throw out the entire Bible, including our precious life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and our...
Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox Christians all affirm the real presence of Christ in holy communion even though they hold very different views about the meaning of "real presence". But no matter what view is taken on that matter Christians believe that they are participating in the body & blood of Jesus Christ when they receive communion.
I wonder, what is the ethical significance of receiving the broken body and shed blood of Christ in holy communion. His body was broken by beatings and crucifixion and his blood shed by the same. So in communion Christians receive Christ in his most terrifying form - a murdered body and the blood shed in the murder. What does it say when Christians receive Christ in that way - a man killed...
Revelation 20:3 states satan is sealed for one specific purpose "Deceiving The Nations"
Revelation 20:8 clearly shows "Deceive The Nations" as satan deceives the nations to the final battle of Armageddon.
This same "Deceive The Nations" is seen in Revelation 16:12-17 as "Devils In Deception" go forth from the dragon/satan, beast, false prophet, to gather the same nations to battle as seen in Revelation 20:8-9
Satan is loosed at the end of the future tribulation, to perform this deception, as you clearly see satan, beast, and false prophet present.
Many falsely believe and teach this event takes place after a 1000 year kingdom, 100% false.
The non-literal 1000 years is taking place now in the Lords spiritual realm, if a future...
