There is a thread here that starts with a mock-the-Bible list -

By contrast we could choose to believe what the Bible says. Because it is so clear and irrefutable in its statements that even atheists can figure it out.
Notice how the devil starts with "mock the Word of God" as his opening gambit in Genesis 3?
And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”
Then notice how clear and irrefutable the text of God's Word "by...
This weekend I saw a FOX News report on Trump. They showed videos of Trump using the rotten filthiest language, just like when I was in the Navy almost 50 years ago. There is nothing that his nasty mouth did not say, except the "N" word.
I saw a sort of history of Trump and it showed him from his youth to present day. In Trumps life he has been married three times and he cheated on at least one wife, and married to woman he was cheating with. Trump has owned gambling establishments, and...
This is a thread for the more philosphically-minded. Discuss. I'll chime in a little later as I do not have time to parse out my thoughts on this, but I'm interested to get the discussion going.
This is perhaps the biggest struggle in my mind as I approach Christianity. I've heard many things about the strength of the written word and the peace the Bible brings them but I cannot agree with everything in it nor can I be sure that these words written by men truly reflect the heart of God. Of course, it's not easy for me to bring this up in casual conversation so I hope that y'all's responses can maybe offer me some perspective? Please understand that I mean no offense at all by this...
No other Church can legitimately make this claim.
These early writings confirm the truth that Jesus started one Church and it was the Catholic Church.
First up, this is taken from the letter of Pope Clement, the fourth pope, written to the Corinthians in about 90 AD. I've highlighted some key quotes that demonstrate the authority of the Church and the pope.
First Epistle to the Church at Corinth,
by His Holiness Pope St. Clement I
These things therefore being manifest to...
If any of you have studied theology, at a seminary or bible college/university or doing it now, can you share what papers you are studying? I just want an idea of what kind of study you engage in, and if you've written a thesis or proposing to write one, what is your topic.
Just out of interest. And how many years does it take?
I have a friend at church who says she's going for her Phd and her proposed topic is theology and photography. I'm not sure what the link will be but something to...
i have had a variety of conversations with my church acquaintances regarding the topic of God's chastisement of us. my friends all appear to agree that God is all loving , and never punishes or chastises us. this has not been my own personal experience, but i have felt silenced on the subject by those who dismiss the notion of a God who would ever dare to punish or correct us. may i ask you all your opinions and experiences on God's chastisement?
"Is there anyone else incredibly frustrated with the DEEP differences between believers?"
Grafted In started a topic with two parts in it, the other part is in the Chat with the Staff forum, and this topic is an attempt, if it is ok and anybody is interested, to continue the discussion on the other part, "DEEP differences between believers".
To me the advent of Lord Jesus our Lord and Savior radically changed our relationship with Heaven (the powerful Divine) along with creating the...
