• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Is Creationism actually science?

    Sure. I might even start a thread on your Flat-Earth Bible for discussion.

    Here's the first entry in your link, a la KJB ...

    Isaiah 40:22a It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,

    Question: Is the Arctic circle off-limits to God, or something?

    Don't be adding words to the Bible. Especially concepts that didn't exist at the time Isaiah was written.

    Like "flat earth"?
    Had He said "Arctic circle," then they would claim it was an anachronism.

    Circles are two dimensional.

    The Arctic Circle is not really a 'thing'. It is a descriptor created by people, like the Tropic of Cancer or the 49th parallel.

    But you can draw one on a globe.

    In fact you can even draw a triangle around Bermuda.
    Take a marker and put a dot on the Arctic circle, then tell someone there's a dot that "sits upon the circle of the earth."

    Would they want to argue with you about it?

    Um, whoever says ' anachronism" is certainly correct.
    "South pole", ftm, or any evidence of sophistication re geography
    or matter celestial in the Bible would be startling.

    I've had discussions over the word "steel" in the Bible as well; they claiming it is an anachronism.

    Yes, because you'd be pointing at a dot of ink on a map or a globe, not the earth.

    Can't God point to a dot of ink on a map or a globe?

    There is no credible event of any god doing it so probably not.

    yes. Because your dot sits on A circle drawn ON the earth. Not on THE circle OF the earth.

    I suppose, but it has nothing to do with the earth. The circles on the maps are not on the earth. They are human conventions.

    If you follow a map to a blue patch indicating a lake, you will find a lake.
    If you follow a map to the equator, you will not find a line on the ground.

    It has everything to do with the earth.
    So? God is speaking to Isaiah, using terms Isaiah understands.
