Re: C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity

Okay, SEG, if you don't get it, then you don't get it. I'd ask you to read it again, but... ...but reading it again wouldn't allow me to share your irrational beliefs in an actual devil or other magical beings that are made up in your Bible. Sorry, there is no other way to say it. Mere Christianity...

Re: C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity

Lewis is not saying that no witches have ever existed. He is saying that we do not kill witches today because our legal system -- the corporate "we" -- do not believe in such things. It is you that is missing the point here Og. He is ignoring the fact that an author of the Bible believed that witch...

Re: C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity

Was that what you call the Rule of Human Nature or Right Conduct?" But surely the reason we do not execute witches is that we do not believ...

Re: C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity

It seems to me that Lewis had some hidden premises in his interpretation of Jesus. It was a given according to him that; 1· The Christian God exists. 2· Jesus existed as an historical person. 3· The NT is a well preserved source and the Gospels are an accurate record of Jesus' life and teachings.

Re: What Happened To The Bodies?

This thread topic question was asked in Carrier's OTHOJ, but I think it deserves its own thread. What happened to the Roman investigation of the missing body of Jesus, a man executed for treason? If Jesus went missing from his tomb and started popping up in several places, (including a crowd of 500...

Re: C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity

It is fairly easy to know someone's mind if you read that persons writings and discuss them with him on a regular basis. So you concede the points then, you only know of his alleged mind from what he allegedly dictated about himself - which springs from poor sources - and you allegedly speak to him...
