OK, where do I begin...?
I've been getting a lot of "revelations" of late so it's hard to know where to begin...?
I guess I should start off by telling you what I think "Hell" is...?
I have come to the realization that "Hell" is, or is for, "people who are never meant for anything more than "this", ever, "forever", etc"... and that is my most basic definition of what "Hell" is and the people who are meant for it, etc...
I guess you could say that, when they die, they kind of "cease to exist", or be awake or conscious for a time, and then are only brought back when this creation has ended...
I've seen pastors over and over again describing about missing Gods purpose for your life but can you really miss out on it if it's already written? (See Psalm 139:16). Also if the Holy Spirit is guiding each and every step of your life and your life is already planned and preordained by God how can you miss it? Everytime you sin the Holy Spirit convicts you to apologize and try not to do it again. Everytime you make a bad decision in your life you recognize it as a bad decision, even our own salvation is predestined and chosen by God so how can a person who has the Holy Spirit and who's life is already recorded miss out on what God already decided their lives will be? Am I missing something?
If yes, maybe you could do some better stuff that arguing with Christians, atheists, etc. Also spending better time than arguing in the political section (I say that as someone who studies Political Science).
Anyways, it is also my birthday! So I just try to enjoy the day.
I'm probably stepping on a prickly subject, but how do folks feel about these, as well as other popular things like selfies & body image, through surgery, or building muscle to 'look good'?
If you go along with any, how do you then do what Yeshua says in Lk9v23 ?
“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me."
What do you think? Does God have emotion?
Consider your own emotions. You can't always control them. If you could, you would choose to always feel happy, or maybe, content. So, emotions are something outside of our control. If God has emotions as we do, then God is subject to something outside God's control. That doesn't sound right, does it?
Consider how your emotions are intimately related to your body. God is Spirit. What would it mean for a spiritual being to feel?
I know, there are so many passages that speak of God having emotions. Are those anthropomorphic? Or, is God truly subject to the ebb and flow of emotion?
What do you think? Does God feel anger, joy, compassion, etc.? Does God suffer? What of the Incarnation and the...
The Oxford dictionary defines free will as
"The power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one's own discretion."
In a very real sense, there is no such thing as free will. God is constrained by His very nature. He is Love, He is Holy, He is Righteous, He cannot lie, He is just and all His ways are just. If we accept that God indeed has free will and the Oxford dictionary is wrong, I would argue that a sinner is no less the possessor of free will.
The sinner is unrighteous, unholy, and incapable of pleasing God in any way. If God were to lie, which is impossible, He would cease to be God. If man wants to change his evil ways, then he must receive a new nature that is righteous (right...
The stunning new texts and documents, explained.
Did Trump actually put a Hit on Yovanovitch?
He's (Parnas) going to be interviewed on Maddow tonight....
Every day it looks worse for DJT, and those who continue to defend him.
Will 20 rats jump ship before the end of the Senate Trial?
Two weeks ago I would have said no way... today I'm far less convinced.
