Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

Consider. First, let us eliminate what some see as evil. Natural disasters. These are unthinking occurrences and are neither good nor evil. There is no intent to do evil even as victims are created. Without intent to do evil, no act should be called evil. In secular courts, this is called mens rea....

Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

Let me explain. A "faculty" is just an ability one has, a capability, if you will. "Eyesight" is a faculty. Eyesight is not evil. "Hearing" is a faculty...but it can be used to shut out the truth or to receive it. "Speaking" is a faculty...but it can be used to bless or curse. However, eyesight and...

Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

But is "free will" itself sinful? Is that the question? Quite, but more specifically, Is there a sinful "percentage" in the form of free will, say for example; Free will consists of two aspects, 50% good and 50% sin, Adam choose the latter Doesn't that mean when God gave human free will, He also ga...

Sin comes from societal norms, not from free will. Human instincts are constrained by these norms.
How can there be a "norm" when Adam has no predecessor, hence no one to compare himself to?

Is there a nature of sin in free will?

God gave Adam the right to choose, freedom of choice to do right or wrong, the freedom of sinning and not sinning. Does this mean there is a nature of sin in our free will? If we are really "perfect" when we were made, doesn't that mean we should only know to do the right thing? If a human is made p...

"Bad word" and what it's actually is

How do people determine that a word is considered "bad", or rather, who determines it in the first place? Is it possible to invent a word and deems it as a bad word? Does a bad word need to went through episodes of negativity in it's use for it to marked as a bad word? But consider this, sometimes p...

Re: Numbers, what are they?

To the question,"how can an order be maintained when there is no one controlling it?" should be, Why does an origin in Nothing REQUIRE obeying a law of consistency? Order is dependent necessarily on Non-order to mean something by contrast. But if anything originates unordered (chaos of an infinity ...

Re: Numbers, what are they?

If the universe were chaotic instead of orderly, life couldn't exist. If life couldn't exist, humans could never have evolved. If humans had not evolved, there would have been nobody to conceive of gods. Therefore, the orderliness of the universe is responsible for Jehovah, Quetzalcoatl and all the...

Numbers, what are they?

As I was solving my calculus homework, a simple question popped into my mind.. What exactly is a number? How can something define our world like so? Is it real? because well..we can't see them, we can only calculate them, or rather is it only a system of some kind so that we can make sense of the th...

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

per the NT, Jesus was killed on a Saturday, no a Sunday. John is a day off verse the other Synopics. Actually according to the bible, Jesus died on Friday not on Saturday. He died before nightfall, it is as Jesus said to the good thief that " today you will be with me in paradise". Matt 27: 62 "The...

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.

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...
