Re: Persecution of Christianity: We Were Warned

Honestly, I think just how much Jews and Christians have been persecuted over the years when compared to other religions as a whole is practically a proof in itself that we're the "one true religion".

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

For me, that represents why Jesus tells us to keep our thoughts pure. It's to avoid putting in the bad grains. Now, if we consciously, deliberately put in black grains then yes, that's a sinful decision that we'll be judged on. So in that sense, you're right. My tweak on that is to say that it isn'...

Re: New games v. 2.0

I got a lot of games for Christmas, having gotten a PS4 for Black Friday and getting a bunch of store credit for all those crazy sales over the holidays. I have yet to play any of them, but here they are: -Infamous: Second Son & First Light -Uncharted 4: A Thief's End -Uncharted: The Lost Legacy -Th...

Re: Last Game You Beat

I just beat Invizimals: Lost Kingdom on the PS3, a game I got for free via PS Plus a few years ago. A little glitchy, but a basic, solid, easy platformer/brawler obviously aimed at kids that kinda reminds me of Ben 10 in that you become a bunch of animals with different abilities.

Re: Whatcha reading???

I'm now reading "When Harry Became Sally: A Response to the Transgender Moment", by Ryan Anderson. Absolutely heartbreaking book, how much society is pushing this on people who need actual help and not gender transition hormones that usually only make their lives even worse.

Re: The Impact of Interstellar Aliens

On the other hand, if the aliens had never heard of Him, and no religion from their world seemed to match up with Christianity, we'd have a real dilemma. Why wouldn't they know about Jesus? Did God choose to leave them in the dark? One could say that it's our job to share the Gospel with them, but ...

Re: The Impact of Interstellar Aliens

It's actually less even than that. The calculated probability of life forming spontaneously on its own, through nothing but random chemistry, is so un likely as to be statistically impossible... Yes, even with the size of the Universe being what it is. That tells me that God alone was the cause of ...

Re: Sometimes... You Just...

Good insight. (Though what did Jesus have against tables, I wonder? They didn't do anything.) :wink: I personally am not as "anti-violence" as some other Christians I know, though I can understand the sentiment, I suppose. But I think those who take Jesus' "turn the other cheek" as a way to literall...

Re: The Impact of Interstellar Aliens

I myself am unsure/ambivalent on whether there's other intelligent life in the universe. Honestly the more we learn about the universe, the more and more things have to be "just right" for a planet to possibly harbor life. I think-- and I'm going off of memory here from a video I saw months ago, so ...

Prayers for my Uncle

This is honestly been an ongoing one for a while now, but I'd appreciate any prayers for my Uncle Mark. He's the youngest of my Mom's brothers and sisters-- he's 60-- but he's had lots of health issues. A pacemaker installed, myriad back problems, and now the feeling in his extremities is slowly goi...

Re: Comfort Verses

My favorite passage in the entire Bible-- the one that both brings me comfort in my salvation and the courage to stand strong-- is Mark 8:36-38: 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoe...

Re: Your Top 3 Bible Books

Psalms-- Lots of very eloquent passages-- you'll find something that speaks to your mood no matter what mood you're in. Also great illustrations of how to praise God. Hebrews-- If there was one book in the Bible I'd give to someone wondering what Christianity is all about (assuming they at least kne...

Re: Trumps not singing hymns or saying the apostle's creed a HW's funeral

I think Trump plays to whatever he thinks the crowd that favors him in the current situation wants. If he thinks the crowd wants him to be religious, he'll act religious. If he thinks the crowd wants him to be belligerent and in-your-face, he'll do that. I think the man has very few core beliefs he'...
