Re: Christianity

That "Body" absolutely excludes the fakers, the Pharisees, the nominalists, the pretenders, the propagandists, the recidivists, the unrepentant, the morally corrupt, the teachers of falsehood, the morally bankrupt, and so on...and the uncommitted religionists, as well. (See 1 Cor. 5:9-13, for examp...

Re: Christianity

Christian rebirth or its purpose is to enable conscious evolution with the help from the Spirit into a higher quality of being. This is freedom from the meaninglessness of the earth into the quality of being in which human meaning and purpose exists. 1 Corinthians 15 12 But if it is preached that C...

Re: The problem of evil

No idea what god has to do with free will or your right to life, liberty, property, happiness, or whatever? You were born with whatever free will you had at you disposal or able to practice. Why would there need to be god to give you free will? Yeah, before I explain, I have to ask (to see if we're...

Re: The problem of evil

If you need God's (or any person's) attention or involvement or example to motivate you: you're in a real pickle. That sums it up! So why not forget about god, since he sure as hell forgot about everyone, and concentrate on your life. He won't mind if He does exist God is the explanation of why I'm...

Re: Christianity

It seems that Belinda and Promethean prefer to argue a meaningless Christendom with nothing other than a secular purpose. But does Christianity have an essential purpose for our being defining its value? Am I the only person here considering this question? With everything going on in the world, wha...

Re: Christianity

So there are answers. But a person's got to be willing to think, to investigate, to consider, to converse, and to take the answers seriously. And to consider the possibility he hasn't already thought of everything. Considering the source, if this isn't a blast, I don't know what is! This from someo...

Re: Christianity

The Bible is a psychological text and not a literal text. It provokes pondering for those who sense something of value for human being as a whole. >> Christianity IMO is far deeper than most are aware of. People can argue it and it is like the "Ship of Fools" Plato described; all meaningless opinio...

Apparently you can't recognize it, even when I point it out. So I can't help you, there.
You haven't pointed it out...
I did.

I can point it out to you, but I can't understand it for you.
What I understand is its dictionary meaning as stated. What you mean, who the hell knows!

Yep, it is. So is "ability." And so is "grammar." So show me the grammatical error you keep insisting I made. Apparently you can't recognize it, even when I point it out. So I can't help you, there.

Re: Christianity

Nowhere, in the context used, describes a non-existent ability. A "where" means a place . An "ability" is not a place. Nice try, but I didn't say "where", I said "nowhere" which is actually a word in the dictionary (if you want to check it out) but isn't defined exactly the same way. It can also me...
