Re: Being and Void

"Jesus had no doubts as you would do." So, you speak for me. And what would be the nature of my doubts if I asked God why I was forsaken? well unless you are the Word of God then your life is flailed compared to the Life of Christ which is a result of a lack of trust and or belief, there are no exc...

Re: Being and Void

To expand: The true nature of the mirror is clarity. The mirror clearly reflects whatever appears before it and the reflection does not change or condition the nature of the mirror in any way. Like the mirror, the purity of one’s true nature is not conditioned by whatever appears before it. Whateve...

Re: Why it was impossible for Jesus to die...explained!

Jesus was God incarnate, his death was to prove death is an illusion and that life is eternal. Jesus proved the eternal via the resurrection. Jesus is the embodiment, the fleshy body of the formless God. John 11:25-26. Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in ...

Re: Ethic of Trade

The law of a country, its commerce and trade, are all ethically based by intent or default. If a country trades with another [China?] then it does so on an ethical basis. If it does so because it must do so for its own survival, then it is not a ‘free agent’. It is by default under the authority or...

Re: personal truth

Yes. I think they want to attach the dignity of a solid, objective truth to a mere opinion. And in this case, it's an opinion that others find reason to doubt...because otherwise, why call it a "personal truth," instead of just "truth"? :shock: The "personal" part is supposed to shield the claim an...

Re: personal truth

that's not really judgement though i can see how you see it that way, its acknowledgment. one can see or hear the truth and acknowledge or deny. one doesn't judge whether or not some thing is true or a fact, one acknowledges or denies the truth because the truth is the truth without judgement. It's...

Re: personal truth

its seems to be fashionable now to redefine personal knowledge as personal truth. turning what i know or have experienced isn't what you know or have experience in to "truth is relative". and converting that into if it isn't known, then its not true. Seems to me: what is true is that which is real....

Re: personal truth

nicely put, agreed, it hocus pocus. the way you put it it seems that personal opinion which means nothing, and they know it, is being put under a cloak of what they want to redefine as truth. Yes. I think they want to attach the dignity of a solid, objective truth to a mere opinion. And in this cas...

Re: personal truth

i guess i get what you're saying here, but judgment or opinion for philosophical reasons still isn't truth. it maybe the truth that one can say yea or na to a statement but other than that, it has to be a fact to be the truth. it doesn't have to be fulfilled or manifest, it just has to be so. it se...

Re: personal truth

On my view, truth is personal/relative. Here's why in a nutshell: * A standard view in analytic philosophy is that truth is a property of propositions. I agree with this view/I think it's useful for a number of reasons (including Russell's comments that truth and falsehood make more sense if they'r...
