Most Unitarians I've met or talked to pray to or give praise to God the Father only. But are there Christians who confess that the Father alone is God and who also pray to / praise / petition the Messiah / Son of God, as well? I'm in that category. Just wondering if anyone else is, too.
As the name of the thread will indicate, I am in the camp that sees remarriage as adultery. It seems that a wave of conservatism in this area is going through christendom, and I feel also that this is what lines up most closely to the scriptures, and to the emotional reality of myself. I am a very faithful person, maybe that goes with the introvert personality trait?
Anyway, my question is on, how is the situation for those who moved out of an adulterous marriage, and have not been...

"Before the Kepler space telescope launched, we did not know whether exoplanets were rare or common in the galaxy. Thanks to Kepler and the research community, we now know there could be more planets than stars,” said Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director at NASA Headquarters. "This knowledge informs the future missions that are needed to take us ever-closer to finding out whether we are alone in the universe."...
"You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only." (James 2:24)
What does James mean?
I consider and offer the examples of works, which he gives in the same chapter.
But what does it mean, that we are "justified" by such works?
Is it wrong for or to wish that the Lord would just immediately arrive? Sometimes I wish I would just leave with other believers. I am only saying this because of a young girl in Brazil who was gang raped and over 30 men are suspects. This crime has also been videotaped. My heart is very heavy for this young girl and it is just so unsettling. I prayed and will continue to pray about this situation. I don't know all of the details except her boyfriend may have been the one who lured her...
In my last thread, "The Moral Argument", we discussed the existence of morality and its ontological foundation. Early in the discussion, the subject of this present thread was brought up but got forgotten as the discussion progressed. I would like to discuss it further, or at least expose the solution, here.
The Euthyphro Dilemma goes like this: "Is what is morally good commanded by God because it is morally good, or is it morally good because it is commanded by God?"...
A four year old managed to get into the gorilla enclosure at the zoo. Zoo officials shot Harambe, the gorilla, out of fear for the boy's life. A Petition is circulating for "Justice for Harambe" seeking to hold the mother of the boy responsible, saying she was negligent in not supervising her child. Some people are also saying the Zoo is responsible. What do you think?
How many people will make it into the Heaven. Obviously, we know it is few, as the Bible talks about the narrow way as the path for salvation and the wide path which leads to destruction.
That said, by looking at the Bible, it appears that the number of people who will make it to Heaven is even less than most think.
For one, the Bible tells us that it is sin which separates us from God.
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his...
