Re: A Not So Blockheaded Question:

Good communication is as much about speaking clearly as it is about awareness of how your words are received by the audience. That's not easy for us humans to do, because our egos like to think we're being perfectly, unambiguously, crystal clear in every effort we make to communicate a message. The ...

Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!

I've been thinking a lot about the benefits of fasting, and what it means in the grand scheme of things. Have you ever noticed that most of the sins we can commit are based on behavior that is animalistic, in nature? Think about this: When we consider the Seven Deadly Sins... Greed: Animals who gath...

Re: Persecution of Christianity: We Were Warned

But to be honest, I've always thought persecution of any form was just dumb. If you don't like something, then don't be a part of it. Persecution has never been about simple dislike. It's about fear. That's why it isn't enough to just leave someone be. If you think they're a threat, then they must ...

Re: Supergirl

Yeah I haven't watched it since a few episodes into the second season. From what I heard, I got out just in time. Spoilers ahead... Part of what made me lose interest, in terms of writing quality, was that they spent the entire first seaosn building up an attaction between James and Kara, had them f...

Re: We Need More Threads in this Subforum

Yeah, I don't like live-chatting. I like to really think about what I'm going to say before I say it. Same here. My mind (like any typical introvert) needs some time to process what I hear before I can formulate an answer and sometimes by the time I have a relevant thing to say, the conversation ha...

Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!

I've only tried it a few times, myself, but it's never really done anything for me. I'm not sure why. All I do is feel weak and/or sleepy. The key to fasting is to remain focused on the Lord. Prayer, scripture study, meditation... These are the things that are enhanced when in a state of fasting. I...

Re: A Plague of Shadows

A new player joined us tonight, but the party was still 5 members strong, as one player was working and couldn't be here. The new player had a half-orc Paladin. The party left Lentz' Landing for the misty crag, about two day's journey through the mountains. Along the way, they met a dryad who offere...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Great point. Add to that in the Garden of Gethsemane, he comes right out and asks if there's another way... but submitted to Heavenly Father's will. Who knows what went through His mind to ask that?

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Indeed. Well said.
Thanks :)

In any case, I think the TL;DR version of the OP might say something like "Because we don't have an objective definition of what a 'good person' even is. That's what Jesus provides."

Re: Persecution of Christianity: We Were Warned

Good ones!

Verses like these give me comfort. It's easy to be discouraged when we see the way the world is changing, but The Lord told us it would be so, yet He also gave us hope and assures us that things will be great in the end.
