Re: Chapabel's Cowardice Towards His Church Policies/Staff Contact.

If another forum member asks the aforementioned questions, the ones you said you refuse to answer for me, or requests contact information for the staff of your Church, will you oblige them? Chap - if you decide to answer "yes", make sure you stipulate that it's an existing, long-time member, or els...

Sure, but our physical laws rule out divine actions that make the ball move.
What do you mean? I'm not aware of that at all, and I've studied science at uni level.

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

Where is all this promised love in the Christian religion? Often imperfectly displayed by imperfect Christians or even those claiming to be Christians for selfish reasons (power, etc.) but also displayed beautifully throughout the Bible by God, Christians and non-Christians. Jesus as portrayed in t...

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

Instead he allows people that have led good lives helping others that are less fortunate than themselves and choose not to believe because of the lack of evidence, into the lakes of fire for eternity. WTF? I agree with the WTF if what you said was indeed true; I just don't believe what you said bef...

Re: "after-birth abortion"?

I agree. It's semantically impossible. IMO, it's just an exercise in words to make people feel it's not so bad. If you're truly for it, you shouldn't be afraid to give it a truthful name. If you can only win your argument for support for this by being deceitful, then perhaps you should rethink your...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I can speak for the Baptist churches in my local area. The local association of Baptist churches, which covers the West Coast from just below San Francisco to just above Santa Barbara, and inland to the first mountain ranges... Are you in mid/northern California, Og3? I'm a SoCal girl, and so glad ...

In the Eastern Church hell is seen as being in God's presence when one is not adapted to that.
Reminds me of C.S. Lewis' interesting book The Great Divorce.

Re: "after-birth abortion"?

After birth abortion isn't possible. Once the infant is born, it's no longer a pregnancy, therefore cannot be classified as an abortion. I agree. It's semantically impossible. IMO, it's just an exercise in words to make people feel it's not so bad. If you're truly for it, you shouldn't be afraid to...
