Armenian Catholicos rejects Jerusalem as Israeli capital
The Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia Aram Irejects the U.S. move to recognize Jerusalemas the Israeli capital.
U.S. president Donald Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital reversed decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday, December 6. The fate of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest issues between Israel and the Palestinians.
Eight of the 15 nations who are currently members of the United Nations Security Council have called for the body to hold an urgent meeting on the U.S. decision by the end of the week.
The Armenian Catholicos discussed the matter with Lebanese president Michel Aoun.
According to the Patriarch, the U.S. approach is not consistent with...
As a Reformed believer I've always admired the Catholic practice of confession. I think that it ends up having some theological pitfalls and my Catholic brothers are welcome to correct me if I'm misunderstanding them. But to me, the pitfalls are:
A notion of penance which appears to be a form of re-payment for our sins.
The insistence that an ordained priest must hear confession in order for a person to receive forgiveness (extenuating circumstances aside).
Reformed types, and by extension most Protestants, have rejected these theological pitfalls, but why have we rejected the practice of confession altogether? The idea of fixed hours wherein parishioners may come to the pastor or elders of the church in order to confess their sins...
I believe in terms of end times prophecies, the EU going from 28 to 10 members will be the thing that will require the most time to develop. I just don't see how this can be accomplished anytime soon unless I am missing something. Please let me know your thoughts.
Mormonism teaches that some of the sons of perdition will be resurrected beings. So how do Mormons define salvation and what is eternal life?
Let’s ask Venn?
OEC vs YEC according to Venn Diagrams!
In an attempt to change the nature of our argument, I want to apply syllogism to this discussion to hopefully make clear some of the points between the two. Before we begin I would like to start with a few examples. Venn Diagrams give a visual reference to understand the difference between logical and illogical conclusions. In the second statement below no conclusion is actually given, as such the presenter of this type of argument wants you to think that by implication, therefore some A’s are C’s. This is illogical, in some cases A and C might be mutually exclusive, and in other cases they may be synonymous, but they can’t be both at the same time. This form of argument is used...
I was bullied tremendously growing up, and a few years ago, was targeted and railroaded at work. I pray all the time to forgive and forget, but then I catch myself thinking about these people, past memories, and I find myself always mad. I can't seem to get rid of it! I'm still hurt. As for work, it has taken a while to get my self-confidence back, but for awhile I was paranoid about everything and everyone. What can I do? I already see a counselor.
Hello Christian Forums. I am new here and I have had a difficult year due to various spiritual and personal struggles, so please bear with me here, as I really need help. I used to go to church, it was the love of my life, but now I feel burned out and just can’t stand the thought of going back to church. Throughout my undergrad years of college, I attended a non-denom church (Won’t be named here for privacy), which I fell in love with at the first service. I was showered with hospitality and kindness when I started going to both church and Bible studies, so I made this church my home and made it a priority to attend everything this church had to offer. However, once I got deeply involved with the church, there were many points that I...
Did you see the American/Israeli flags projected unto the Western Wall today? For those who might not follow the news, President Trump changed decades of history announcing our recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital today, and his plans to move the American embassy there. That is a huge end time sign taken right out of Ezekiel 37. Turn your Bibles to Ezekiel 37.15; start reading and see if you agree with this explanation.
The two sticks are For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions. This is the present day occupants of Jerusalem and Israel. The LORD continues to tell Ezekiel to Take another stick, and write upon it, for Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions. This is America,...
Franken's support fades as Democrats call for resignation
Sen. Conyers also resigned yesterday.
I'm sick and tired my friends avoiding me all because I try to touch them and tickle them. I was just joking. They avoid me all because I touch them. I was just getting their attention when I forget their names.
How do I get them to stop avoiding me and how do I get them to come back to church?
I would rather show up at their jobs and ask Them how they're doing.
