Here is a thinking experiment for you. What if Christianity never canonized a group of writings that we now know as the Bible? Or what if the Apostles or the Prophets never wrote anything down, or if what they wrote was permanently destroyed so as not to have made it down to our time? What would the state of Christianity by like today in your opinion? How would it effect your faith tradition?
Is it being nice? Is it puppies and kittens and all things fluffy? Is God love?
Let's discuss what love is and isn't, all in light of the teachings of scripture and the example of Christ. What is love and what are some misunderstandings of what love is, and how does what we think about love effect of lives as Christians?
Why it seems most Christians are against asylum seekers? For the political parties most Chrisitans support are the parties who are are openly stating to deport asylum seekers and even refuse to accomodate people that have fled their own countries due to war and persecution. Anyway Jesus Christ himself was a refugee.
It seems the people I personally know that are most passionate about the rights of asylum seekers are not Christian at all. Unlike some Chrisitans I come accross who believe...
On Tuesday, June 14th Pat Robertson, a well known Christian Broadcaster (Chairman of The Christian Broadcasting Network, CBN) and former Southern Baptist Minister sat down on the 700 Club to discuss the recent Orlando shootings and what he sees as "the dilemma" the Left is facing.
The video below is a clip taken from his message, where he shared his thoughts about what is going on today with "the Left" and their "dilemma of major proportions" in regard to Islam and Homosexual rights and...
In the last year I've watched as my faith has taken a large decline. It initially began over the idea of not being able to stop living a lust filled life (but that isn't what this question is about), and after talking to my girlfriend I realized there seems to be this huge hole in my knowledge about living as a sinner.
You see my girlfriend is a social worker, and constantly has to deal with patients who do not have the ability to properly reason. The idea that they need God is almost...
As the title suggests, are women allowed to be ministers, specifically elders and deacons?
In 1 Timothy chapter 3, Paul lists the qualifications for the elders and deacons. For both of them, he uses the masculine pronoun and they must be faithful to their wife.
I don't know what verse egalitarians use, so I won't pretend to know what verses they use to avoid misrepresenting them. I do recall, however, Paul referring to Phoebe as a deaconness, but from my conversation with lther Christians,...
Along with my thread on hell this topic came up. Do Christians believe in the OT anymore? If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever than He also has wrath or is there a different God in the NT?
Of course I think that God has wrath tempered by His Love
We have seen many Christians (be it Pastors, layman or followers) fall due to Sex, Money and Power. In this thread, I would like to learn different views (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and etc) on adultery.
We know Jesus has forgiven the sin of the lady who has 5 husbands but yet when Christians divorce and enter remarriage, not in accordance to the two teachings by Jesus and Paul, is deemed adulterous.
Many Christians say adultery is eternal sin and is condemned eternally. Do you...
Allow me to explain my question... Biologically speaking, there is no real reason for us to age and die the way that we do. Why is it that every human being is aging at about the same rate, and dying naturally in the ballpark of 100-120 years?
Genesis 6:3 has God shortening our lifespans to 120 years... Isn't it interesting that nobody can live much longer than this? I read on Google that a woman supposedly lived for 122 years, but that's still right in the ballpark. Can...
