Re: Bliss in Heaven While Your Daughter Gets Tortured

Secondly, in Heaven we will be in spiritual bodies, not these earthly bodies. In this body, my children are flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone. But in my spiritual body, only those who are saved, blood-washed believers are my family. So when this woman dies and enters Hell she is no longer relat...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Perspective's got nothing to do with this; we're weighing the question whether God is somehow constrained by laws he himself launched at startup. You're arguing he is, I'm providing counter-examples in scripture that invalidate every single word of your case. What you seem to be arguing is that if ...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

There may be a sense in which, out of any relationship with creation, absolutely anything is open to God, but the act of creation itself must limit possibilities. Imagine God is going to create a world and he creates just one thing about that world, the thing he creates is the law of non-contradict...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Babies can’t use phones, so I don’t think we need to worry about that one. Yes but surely this kind of indirect communication places the existential status of what one is in contact with in greater uncertainty. That is the point of the Turing test - if I only have written communication to go on, ho...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

If we are talking about a relationship then by definition there are two sides. If the phone is ringing and you don't pick up then that is down to you. If you unplug the phone then that will stop someone calling however much they want to. Also by definition both sides have to make their counterparts...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Is God omnipotent or is he not? Are you suggesting God can be anything less than 100% persuasive? According to scripture he has the ability to convince the entire human race of the reality of his existence whenever he wants to-- Romans 14: 10-11 10 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Arbitrary? What's arbitrary about it? If your car craps out and the mechanic tells you that his diagnosis is that an expensive part of your motor has failed and you're short of money, do you ask him to re-run the tests until a cheaper part is blamed instead? No, but you might test his reasoning by ...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

The reason for this is because I have already evaluated your claim and rejected it as false. And I once analyzed the idea that a thinking man could own a Toyota car and not be an idiot, and rejected it as false. Later I was forced to rethink this idea, and discovered it to be true. So having once c...
