Speaking of Communion (Lord's Supper, Eucharist); the idea that liturgical faiths have that the bread and wine are literally Jesus's flesh and blood and that partakers are eating his literal flesh and literal blood. I can see it being a memorial that has value as a sacrament simply because Jesus says so, but to insist that it's literal flesh and blood seems like a kind of cannibalism. I don't know how else to put this, but I admit to finding it a bit disturbing.
Hello everyone, there's something that has really been bothering me and I would like it if anyone could give me ideas as to why this is happening, and some advice. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so I apologize if I've posted this in the wrong place.
Okay, so beware, this is kind of long:
For almost a year, I keep having dreams about the same person. He's sort of one of my friends...I know him well, but I'm not really close to him, if that makes sense.
I'll start from...
"And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire." (Matt 18:8 ESV)
Is Jesus interacting self-amputaion in the above verse? People have literally done this to themselves. . .
Muslims, Jews and Christians agree in the worshipping of one God or monotheism. Jews and Muslims do not accept the deity of Jesus Christ as the Messiah. While this is fundamental basis for the Christian faith, however the topic is direct at what is God verse what is Allah in respect of Muslim and Christian faith texts rather than the who is God or Allah.
Muslims and Christians view Jesus Christ as the Son of God as well as the Christian doctrine of the Holy Trinity in vastly different light...
The Rapture is not Biblical, False Doctrine?
Can't find the word rapture in my bible only accepted by a lot Christian circles, why?
Does Satan wants to deceive us and make us lose hope, be afraid?
Does anybody has a Biblical answer?
How did such a primitive people, get the "order" of creation, or how life came about right? According to evolution? How did they know, unless they had "help"?
The tithe is God’s law for His children, yet the payment is entirely voluntary. In this respect it does not differ from the law of the Sabbath or from any other of His laws. We may refuse to obey any or all of them. Our obedience is voluntary, but our refusal to pay does not abrogate or repeal the law...
The payment of tithing strengthens faith, increases spirituality and spiritual capacity, and solidifies testimony. It gives the satisfaction of knowing one is complying with the will of the...
"Always let your conscience be your guide." That's the advice of Jiminy Cricket, but was he right?
Can a Christian rely on his conscience to determine right from wrong?
I've read countless posts on CF in which that is the counsel given. It might have been worded a bit differently, like, "Do what your heart tells you to do", but generally, the advice offered is to look within for the answer.
What's your advice to someone seeking an answer on an ethical dilemma? Is it an echo of Jiminy...
The Antichrist and his indentity seems to be a recurring debate with Christianity, particularly with dispensationalism.
Lately, I've been convinced that John's use of the word Antichrist does not refer (at least not necessarily) to a single individual, though I won't rule that out as a possibilty, but a group of people who deny the truth.
I've always leaned towards dispensationalism (the progressive kind, anyway) because I agree with it's view of Israel and the Church, but I don't see a...
