Something I've been pondering lately. I'm now fairly confident that most Christians who believe in Evolution, do so because they have a problem with the idea of the supernatural in general. They tend to reject accounts of miracles in the NT (unrelated to Evolution) just as readily as they reject a Genesis worldview of earth history.
But why? I think perhaps we have a hidden motivation to "de-realize" (make the Bible more unreal) because this in turn makes ideas of accountability and God's judgment more unreal. It makes SIN feel less real... Our personal lives, our desires and agendas, get a lot more flexible the more we push the Bible into the realm of symbolic unreal-ness...
"All those stories about God wiping out people who...
This thread is in reply to a double invitation by @Athanasius377 to a debate (here and here).
The topic I proposed was Sola Scriptura, but @Athanasius377 chose to limit the scope of the debate to the sufficiency of the Scriptures. So here we go.
Based on James White's definition of Sola Scriptura (here), which I believe most Protestants can agree with, here is the claim I would like to discuss:
Claim: "The Scriptures are sufficient to function as a Rule of Faith."
Challenge: Prove it!
Rules: Be charitable and respectful, stick to the topic, be as brief and clear as possible.
...to eat what YHWH strictly prohibited; why didn't Peter (probably the closest to Yahshua) get the memo?
Why would he be bewildered by his vision? If this is what Yahshua was teaching; shouldn't Peter have been teaching the same?
Who does YHWH accept?
This and other topics are covered in Christopher Enoch's reality packed video!
30+ Bible verses, that either in isolation or in combination with other verses support universal salvation for non-believers to ponder and believers to enjoy, use and add to (I will then add them to the OP):
1. Luke 2:10
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
2. Luke 2:30-31
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
3. 1 Timothy 2:3-4
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
-in combination with Job 42:2 and Psalms 115:3 and Jeremiah 29:11 I find this forms a very compelling argument that universal salvation will be achieved-...
Oh, this is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant! Defund police, abolish immigration controls, close all Federal prisons, decriminalize drugs, gut the defense budget, and remove law enforcement from the 911 system.
Yeah, that'll work. That'll make everything in the country just peachy keen.
I'm not exactly sure what alternative reality these people are in contact with, but if they get their way, you can stick a fork in this country.....the drafters of this legislation must have the intellectual range of a trout fly. First thing tomorrow morning, I'm off to buy more ammunition. God help us.

Wearing a mask cuts own risk of novel coronavirus by 65 percent, experts say
Though I had read research that masks do help the wearer, many still insist that masks only help one not infect others. Like many things with COVID this is a myth.
"We've learned more due to research and additional scientific evidence and now we know [that] not only wearing a mask prevents the person wearing the mask to transmit to others, but wearing the mask protects the person who's wearing it," said Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital."
So basically im at a loss right now ive heard that if i keep sinning im not saved even if its not willful sinning. And ive heard that it doesn't matter if i willfully sin or not your still saved. Ive also heard that if its my own will to stop sinning, that means its not the holy spirit helping me which makes me someone who is basing Salvation on just my works not Jesus death and resurrection on the cross. Can anyone help explain because in the bible some verses make it seem like without works we aren't saved but that you dont need to have any works and your saved. Im just confused and need some guidance with this. Thank you all God bless.
In Daniel 11 we find the king of the norths military occupying Jerusalem for 42 months. In Revelation we find the Gentiles occupying Jerusalem 42 months.They will be torturing people and if anyone hurts them "fire" proceeds out of thier mouths to devour thier enemies.
Now we know God would have known the simple military command (fire) would be used by the armed forces occupying Jerusalem. But what I find amazing is no one ever discusses it. lol
Revelation 11:5 KJV: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Do you drink? What are your thoughts on drinking?
This is a topic that I have been thinking about. I am wondering if I should not drink at all. I grew up in a home where alcohol was present but not abused. In my school years (before I had a relationship with Jesus Christ), I was introduced to it. I was in a toxic relationship so I would drink heavily on some weekends as to not feel sad. I also horribly regret saying that I drove drunk one time. I also had sex under the influence although I did not actually want to had I been sober. I was in a dark place and did not recognize how dark of a place I was in.
I finished my schooling years and the alcohol did not become a problem. I would enjoy a beer with loved ones on occasion. I have been...
