    Is baptism required?

    I think that, broadly speaking, the scriptures imply that it is not required, but is certainly the ideal. There are verses that say that say all we need to do is "believe and be saved", but some also mention baptism. Acts 16: 30-31 Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be...

    God is not 3 persons

    ADMIN HAT ON This thread is now closed. Discussing the Trinity, its nature, etc. if fine - but arguing a point that is outside of orthodox Triniarianism is not. God is Triune, 3 Distinct Persons, One in Essense, One God. This is often explained using the following graphic, while imperfect it...

    It's confusing. God doesn't set a good example.

    No worries, I moved it to a better forum :)

    Dear Protestant friends

    Having crossed the Tiber in both directions I can say that there is great beauty and grace in the Catholic Church, it is a great blessing to many people, even if it is not the right fit for me and others that find a different path.

    I appreciate your time in the reply, it is clear that we won't see eye to eye on this subject, both of us believing the other to be misinformed and/or ignoring scripture and custom. That's OK, the issue of veganism isn't a salvific one.

    Can I Have a Buddha Statue as a Christian? Is It Idolatry?

    ADMIN HAT ON Let me reply with what I posted three years ago (and only two posts back): Please note, this is a long dead thread (from 2012). While thread necromancy is not against forum rules, it is not useful and the OP will likely never read your post. If the subject interests you and you...

    Nazarene Church and Inerrancy

    South Tampa has flooding issues in many of the streets, they have been trying to fix it for decades. That said, it is one of the more upscale parts of town. Hyde Park has less of those issues and is a nice and walkable community within the South Tampa area. You probably already know, but there...
