We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Impassibility of God
Classic theism teaches that God is impassible — not subject to suffering, pain, or the ebb and flow of involuntary passions. (theopedia.com)
I have a problem with the doctrine of the impassability of God. If God is truly not subject to suffering or pain, then in what sense did the Son of God suffer at the cross? Why does the Scripture refer to the "sufferings" of Christ (2 Corinthians 1:5; Philippians 3:10; Hebrews 2:10; 1 Peter 1:11; 1 Peter 5:1; etc.)? Is Christ not God of God, Light of Light, begotten, not made? This brings me to my problem: the council of Chalcedon expels from the priesthood anyone who denies the impassability of God... I am at odds with a declaration of the 4th ecumenical council... am I...
I don't know if this is true or not but I think that I have seen some Nephilim (giant humans). They are allegedly related to free masonry.
I don't know if they are humans born giant (some people are taller than other, so maybe the Nephilim are just humans who are really tall) or if they are regular humans that some scientist have made giant by giving them growth hormone (which would be a masonic secret).
So, do you have information about Nephilim?
I feel God speaking to me regarding my sin. I have fallen so far back lately. Due to great disappointment in God and the fact I feel pain, anger and annoyance when reading the bible. It is unnessarily hard for me to read. This has been a problem for years. I sought deliverance from people who do that sort to thing and have not had a response and it has been a while, so I’m unsure if they will ever response. I believe I am oppressed by demons inside. I have felt so since I was a child.
My idolatry is reading comics when I’m not allowed to by God’s warning, watching non Christian videos, watching non Christian movies and having hobbies. While these things aren’t sinful they are quickly idols. My life is now consumed by them. Sometimes...
I have been trying to wrap my head around the two natures of Christ (human and divine) and believe that Philippians 2 may be key to helping me understand. For convenience, I will post the relevant text here (emphasis mine):
 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,
 who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited,
 but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form,
I can gather a few things from this passage:
It is talking about the man Jesus as seen on earth (and not the second person of the trinity in an unfamiliar form).
The man Jesus was at one point in the form of God (presumably "form" means...
RCC: 5 "SOLA"'S: whence cometh??
1 Sola Fide (Faith/(BELIEF) alone) is one of the "battle flags" of the Reformation to set it off from Roman Catholic teaching.
The other "Solas" were
2 Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone),
3 Sola Gratia (Grace alone),
4 Sola Christus (Christ alone) and
5 Sola Gloria Dei (to God's glory only).
The notion that we are saved by Grace alone through spirit-led FAITH / BELIEF alone in Christ alone is foundational to NON-CATHOLIC theology.
SEE: John 3 explained in Ephesians 2
Another point: SUPREMACY of Scripture over Sacred Tradition and/or Papal Magisterium is just as vital to NON-CATHOLIC theology.
Remove any of the 3 pillars of the RCC "belief system", and its theology will collapse.
The denial of...
How does a believer in the Christian God not question his/her beliefs in an all loving/good God with all that we see in nature? As, a christian myself, i have to be honest that I do have a hard time trying to come in terms with an all good God when I think about this. I try to just move on with answering myself "i can't know everything" but it is an argument that i can't deny is effective against the beliefs of a personal God.
I've watched videos of animals and how the predator eats their pray, an example is one video of a chimp that just tore a smaller monkey in half before eating it. Then one of an eagle who catches a small deer and just drops him off a cliff.
I just have to stress the question as to "why, God?". The most common...
sorry if this is a repeat; unable to do searches for some reason today
baby dedication at age 2 when we adopted her
she is now 10 and have been thinking about baptism lately
husband and I were both baptised as infants
should we should wait until our child expresses interest in being baptised with other adults?
or look into having her baptised with infants now?
The Bible teaches that Jesus saves sinners by substituting for them in judgment and facing the wrath of God in their place. Throughout Jesus' entire life - and especially on the cross - he suffered the wrath of God for sins. On the cross, Jesus propitiated the wrath of God. If we are in Christ, the wrath of God does not remain on us. Rather, we enter into the blessing of God. This entails several Biblical truths:
All the suffering that we are liable to in this life, including death itself, is due to God's wrath and curse upon sin (Genesis 3:16-19).
Those who disobey God merit covenant curse, which includes the anger and displeasure of God bringing about misery for a person and ultimately bringing about the person's death (Deuteronomy...
