The very definition of God, all knowing, all powerful, everywhere at once.....refutes it. If there was more than one God they would neither be everywhere at once, as they would share their real estate. They would also share knowledge and neither would have all knowledge of all actions because some actions would be unique to both and without knowledge of each other. By the very definition of God...there is only one God. The great shema, Jews had it right. If there was more than one God, none of them would truly by definition, be God.
So this coming year I'll be going to college but there's one thing about it. I'm tired of living in California were there are so many liberal people, who proclaim their belief in God but are huge hypocrites. Many people around here are Catholics and I would like to go to a school, where there are more traditional Christians. I'm sure there are lots of Christians in the south (lots of hypocrites too) but I'm not sure they would welcome me considering that I'm a mixed breed (half Spanish and half Chinese). Even with that though, I'd rather be surrounded by Christians than to be with liberal atheists.
Where do you guys think are the best places to live?
I need some advice from Christians on my relationship issue.
I have a friend that I have been friends for 10 years (since we were in high schools). Let's call her 'D'.
She is 2 years older than me and moved to the different state, but we continued to have our friendship lasted. We went to the same college, majored in the same major. We studied together and lived together as roommates for a brief amount of time. We are both Christians. We both believe strongly in Christ. She is my church friend as well.
Recently we got into a discussion. I am good at argument and loves argument and loves to talk. My friend, D, is not much into those things. She doesn't like to talk. She is quiet. So during the discussion/argument, she said "I don't...
My search for the post of BAB2berean on this subject came up empty. So the following is my reply.
THE DAY OF THE LORD
The Scriptures have much to say about “the day of the Lord,” but precisely what is the day of the Lord?
Generally speaking, of course, it refers to the time when the day of man, or “the times of the Gentiles,” will be brought to an end and “the Lord alone shall be exalted” (Isa. 2:11,17). But will it include more than the actual return and reign of Christ? Will it include the prophesied tribulation period, during which God will bring Gentile rule to an end? We believe it will.
One pastor who teaches that the Body of Christ will go through the tribulation and that its Rapture to be with Christ will follow the...
Would you leave Christianity for $1,000,000? Maybe $2,000,000? If you were offered a Bentley or Rolls Royce car to turn your back on God, would you make the deal? Would you renounce Christ for a top of the line Rolex or Breitling watch? What would it take for you to leave Christianity?
Personally, I would never leave Christianity for anything. In fact, the Devil even offered to make me a multibillionaire to depart from my faith, but I rejected him many times.
In Genesis 3:17 -
"Cursed is the ground because of you"
In Romans 8:19-21
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
Adam was originally created to live forever. But after the fall he died at 930 years of age. Noah was the last of the long lifers and died at 950 years old. His son died at 600 and thereafter lifespans declined dramatically. Moses died at 120. But after that there were few people over 100 in the bible if any. It was only in...
Sorry Waholka but that sub-forum is "not for me" shall we say.
That's a question worth considering.
Because low-esteem can be the source of several sins I think.
One I am thinking of right now is envy. One of the deadly seven.
And most of us have compared ourselves to others to varying degrees.
Currently I envy those with a good TV screen. Mine is pre plasma and only about 30 cm diameter. I'd like a home entertainment system.
Envying other peoples' talent is another classic. I really envy that booming voice, full of confidence giving a great speech or just commenting on TV.
Low self-esteem also leads us to making bad choices. Like choosing false Gods to make ourselves look more appealing to others. Getting drunk is a fool's way of...
I have an unstable relationship with my younger brother Daniel.
(My "friendships" and interpersonal relationships have been unstable for most of my relatively short life).
This morning, I went inside my father's house for the first time in 3 months so that I could choose books that I intend to donate to my local library
(My mother and father were not home)
My brother Daniel apologized for being unable to help me put my books into boxes....and then he went to serve at his church.
After Daniel returned from church, he did NOT ask me if I needed help, and he did NOT offer to help me. Daniel went inside his room and shut his door.
(This sort of behavior is very typical of my younger brother Daniel)
Daniel is very actively...
I'm supposed be away on a meditative break, but I need to put my foot down on this evil!

"Interestingly enough, the first appearance of the god of power in Christian thought, emerged in an argument for Universalism. A monk named William of Ockham, considered the question of wether or not God could bring a sinner to Heaven without changing him. William of Ockham argued; yes, God could bring a sinner to Heaven without changing Him, because God's greatest attribute was power, not Truth and Love, God was all-powerful and because He was all-powerful, He could drag that sinner kicking and screaming to Heaven, by His sheer might alone.
