Re: God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

But there are also inconsistencies within the OT and within the NT Can you prove this statement? Because as far as I know, the OT and the NT is harmonious with each other. Though one did not have to sacrifice an offering because God has fulfil His prophesy about a saviour that will come (Jesus Chri...

Re: God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

they were written in different languages for different audiences -Imp I don't think your answer answers any of my question, I was asking for proves that justified God's divinity. Although the OT was written in Hebrew, Jews in Jesus time such as Paul understands the OT very well. Even Hebrew is basi...

God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

SoI was comparing the OT and NT. I knew that God's character is different, in OT he was really harsh to mankind, for example, His chosen people was the Israelites and all other nation cannot receive salvation. In the NT, Jesus was depicted as forgiving, teaches us to be kind to everyone and spread h...

Re: Is there a boundary on our free will?

Christians are always trying to absolve God of moral culpability in the fall by whipping out their favorite "free will!", or “ it’s all man’s fault”. That is "God gave us free will and it was our free willed choices that caused our fall. Hence God is not blameworthy." But this simply avoids God's c...

Is there a boundary on our free will?

I recently review the topic of cosmogony and of course I had to revisit the creation of human according the Bible, and a question was born; Man was created according to God's image (imago Dei) and we also inherit His behaviour (imitatio Dei), it is said that before the fall, human have an unblemishe...

Both words clash simultaneously especially in the era where science are advancing.

Is it possible to obtain a fixed truth?

Many philosopher has debated the issue regarding truth along years since the ancient world, however it seems that each of them has a different approach in defining what "truth" is. In the middle ages for example, church is the one set the standard for what "truth" is. To the extent that they deem Ga...

Re: Secular worldview vs Christianity worldview

Hi, cicero: You can do that more simply: Anthropogyny, Teleology, Ethics. Those three will give you all the basic distinctive between worldviews. The rest are "accessories," because they are defined by the former three. There are many such schemes that have been proposed. James Sire has a book on h...

Re: Secular worldview vs Christianity worldview

When you say, " Everyone's own worldview is "usually" affected "greatly" by the environment they live in ", is there anything else that could affect one's own worldview other than "the environment they live in"? If yes, then what is that or what are they? In my opinion, aside from "the environment"...

What is "worldly wisdom" according to God?

1 Corinthians 3: 19 stated : For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness” If so, does that mean all worldly knowledge are wrong? Didn't God gave man the ability to think and have common sense? If non-believers wisdom is fooli...

Re: Secular worldview vs Christianity worldview

But Cicero 117 has just done so ,so it's possible. Cicero117 has made a pretty successful attempt to analyse Xian beliefs in order to compare with 'secular' beliefs. When you want to analyse any idea you have to select categories under which you pigeonhole particular attitudes and beliefs. The cate...
