Earlier I was engaged in a religious discussion with an atheist on the YouTube comments section. He was asserting that God is no different than Thor, Zeus, or any other mythological god. Then he asked me to prove otherwise. I tried explaining to him that my personal experiences with the Holy Spirit testify to the existence of God, but he wasn’t buying it. I wished I had better arguments than the personal experience testimony. What else could I have said to convince him that our heavenly father exists? Let me know.
What would you think if you received a message like this from a girl's mother & would you tell her mother the truth in this instance?
My crush and I are both Christians.
I just found out that my mother secretly sent a text message to my crush asking him if there are any feelings between us!! And she told him that she was asking because she was worried about me. He replied that there are no feelings between us, then wanted to know why she was worried. The conversation ended there.
As you can imagine, I'm in complete shock about this!! I'm head over heels in love with him. He just started flirting with me a month ago, and I was sure he hinted that he had feelings for me. There was a misunderstanding between us which I wanted to talk to...
A newly released convict wants me to call him to talk, bc he said I'm the kindest person he has ever met in the history of his life. He said he has never known anyone who has been so kind to him.
We struck up conversation in the cab ride he was giving, as he was the driver and it was a long ride.
He gave me his number and first and last name.
He said he hates his living situation as hes surrounded by room mates who drink heavily and fight with each other.
He had self harm injuries all over his arm, well healed and old.
He said he used to be a drug fiend, but was over that.
He said he was celebite for 10 years and his wife died.
Well, I'm celebit and my spouse also died and I used to self harm.
I went home and looked him up in...
My father was a Freemason and later he was saved. He became a preacher shortly before his death. I was 12 years old at the time he died. Because he was a Freemason, he managed to keep some of the literature, I wonder if that is a mistake to keep them. Are the Freemasons a Christian organization or are they pagan? Do they have non-Christian roots or are they Christian believers? I have wondered that because of all of this, should I worry about his soul? I also saw a "ghost" of sorts of him. Maybe it is because I wished he were alive and I have wondered often what were to happen if he were there for both my high school and college graduation. Should a Christian throw away all things that were once a part of a sinful past? Is it...
Do you deny that one would be barred from getting a temple recommend if he/she did not keep the Word of Wisdom(no coffee, tea, alcohol, tobacco)? Do you deny that one has to be a tithe payer to get a temple recommend? Do you deny that one has to be deemed worthy in order to get a temple recommend?
Those seem pretty accurate. A temple recommend interview is largely the member evaluating their own worthiness. I wonder if you would allow a preacher in your church or a Sunday school teacher who worshiped the devil? What about a child abuser? Do you not have any standards for the persons who perform some of the most important duties in your church?
I never saw this before:
Discussion in 'Denomination Specific Theology' started by Monksailor, Jul 5, 2017.
... The pontificate of Francis can, perhaps, best be understood as a political project. His election at the conclave in 2013 was—unbeknownst to the world at the time—the result of a campaign planned out in advance by four radical cardinals who saw then-cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the perfect vehicle for the revolution they wanted to launch within the church. (The story of how Cardinals Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Walter Kasper, Godfried Danneels, and Karl Lehmann formed “Team Bergoglio” is detailed in Austen Ivereigh’s worshipful biography of Francis, and even though the cardinals subsequently...
Continued from Remarriage Part 1—concluding part
There may be cases of young and unfortunate widows who need support with remarriages. They may have children to support. A remarriage with a divorced man may light up their lives. Or a remarriage with a poor virgin girl sustains a desirable life. What could be better than this? If a woman had been unjustly divorced, then it will be a good thing if a man married her irrespective of his background.
Sex is the strongest built-in urge, given by God, which both man and beast experience. Therefore, God can understand this weakness in a person. David committed adultery culminating in deliberate ending of the life of a person. Nevertheless, he was greatly used by God for other positive...
If the Papacy really is an innovation of the Roman Catholic Church, when did it begin? Could it have been during the oft-hated Medieval Catholic Church, when corrupt bishops decided to name a pope? No, it couldn't have been, if the Great Schism of 1054 (and tensions beginning much earlier) were primarily over the role of the Pope in the Church.
So the Catholic Church upholds that Peter was the first pope, and thus receives a lot of vicious attacks from Protestants who claim that "claiming" Peter as the first pope is a terrible thing for Catholics to do. But if he wasn't the first pope, who was? And how can Protestant Christians deny Peter as the first Pope, when Martin Luther himself described the Roman Catholic Church as "St....
