Re: God Releases Satan Instead of Killing Him

Except that angels can't exercise any free will because they get kicked out, so it's not really free is it? They can exercise their free will for reasons explained, but you can't comprehend what free will means, and I can't make you. Already addressed, and you couldn't comprehend the information, a...

Re: God Releases Satan Instead of Killing Him

Very poorly addressed, but I don't blame you. You haven't got much to work with.

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Hi SEG We are back to our familiar problem. It seems to me you either misunderstand or misrepresent almost everything I say. I am not sure if the misrepresentations are deliberate or not. I could go through all this line by line and point it out but there would be little point. Please do continue M...

Re: God Releases Satan Instead of Killing Him

God gave angels and humans a free will. Using our free will isn't a sin (evil), rather we use our free will to do good or evil, and a free will isn't freedom from consequence. Except that angels can't exercise any free will because they get kicked out, so it's not really free is it? They can exerci...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

This illustrates the point I was making. You cannot critique someone's logic by ridiculing their belief's. If those beliefs are held because of a process of reasoning you could critique their reasoning by examining that process. To the contrary, ridicule and mockery is a very salient way of exposin...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

I remember in the old forum that you said that just because there wasn't any evidence of vast numbers of Egyptian slaves (no, you probably didn't admit to 2 million) wandering in the desert for 40 years, it doesn't mean that it didn't happen. Oh, and you dodged this important point that I made earli...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Original sin is a complex doctrine, introduced by Augustine in the fourth century, never accepted at all in the Eastern Church and often questioned in the west. It is not anywhere near as central to the faith as you seem to think. Did you know that many liberal scholars do not believe Christ’s resu...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

It is also a good time to mention again that faith is what you use when you have insufficient evidence. If you think that the snake plus Adam and Eve in Genesis was not an actual event in history, then there was no Original Sin and no need for a saviour. If Christ's crucifixion was only a story, th...
