If one person let's say Freddy, did something horrible to another person, let's say Chris.
If Freddy repents and is sorry for the things he done and he apologises to Chris, Chris forgives him but does not EVER want to see him again, what happens when they both go to heaven?
Will Freddy have to avoid Chris for all eternity? What will Jesus do about the situation when they see each other in heaven?
The Creation Museum features a LOT of dinosaurs...unfortunately. Why? Why are they succumbing to evolutionist mythology just to gain attention from kids? A real creationist knows that dinosaurs never existed.
Look, I understand dinosaurs have been a big part of pop culture, but really...it's just a big fat lie fabricated by Satan. Mm-hmm. Satan knew what looked ''cool'' and ''sharp'' to we vulnerable sinful human beings--especially evolutionists!
Due to our sinful nature, it's just natural for us to look at a dinosaur--with claws and teeth and scales--and exclaim ''cool!'' without ever being skeptical. The mass simply wish that dinosaurs existed, and have been refusing to admit that dinosaurs never existed.
But hereby I cry out...
I think it's a good thing to discuss theological views without putting words in the mouth of others with different views or making assumptions.
One of those assumptions Calvinists, especially, make is that they assume Arminianism is semi-pelagian.
I get why they do this. I thought this was true for many years, and so (somewhat grudgingly) was a Calvinist because I thought there really wasn't any other option besides Calvinist or Semi-Pelagian.
But, as time went by, I gradually began to shed each letter from TULIP (it started with Limited Atonement) and by the time I got to something like a 2-point Calvinist, I realised that I could never call myself a Calvinist if I only accepted like 2 points of its 5 point doctrine.
My belief is that a community only functions to the extent that people conform to the general expectations of the community.
So, what is the value of establishing rules, if you don't enforce the rules when they are violated?
I work in a professing Christian facility that I see rules established but not enforced all the time. So, I am wondering, am I simply wrong and rules are only set up, for the gullible ones of us who believe we are to follow rules, with the expectation by rule-makers that most of us will conform and therefore the overall community will function the way they want anyway?
An elementary school principal in Nebraska was suspended for telling teachers not to have "J" shaped candy canes decorating the classroom. Reason? The "J" looks like Jesus! Do you think she went through all other candies to make sure there was nothing else that might offend?
I go to the Christian apologists to get answers, notably from David Wood, Christian Prince, and and Ex-Muslims. If I go get my answers from a Muslim, I will of course get a completely different answer.
I don't know the absolute truth about Muhammad, or about how Islam spread. But what David Wood and the Other Christian Apologists that deal with objections from Islam have answers that make the most sense to me, then when I see a Muslim Apologists answer I would get a completely different answer, and it really seems like the Muslim Apologists are just trying to beat around the bush to cover their butts or do some extreme mental gymnastics. A lot of Muslim Apologists would deflect the question and randomly talk about how Christianity was...
