    Is it sin or unbelief that denies salvation?

    beat me to it. although i would say, unbelief is THE sin. this is the source of the original lie, doubting God's Word. when we sin, we are essentially falling away from and denying the power of Christ to deliver us from sin; and thus denying his sacrifice and resurrection-victory-righteousness which is imputed to us for the purposes of overcoming. unbelief causes us to walk in our own strength, which is powerless against sin. God bless

    Proof That God Exists

    are we supposed to take it on FAITH that ALL the rest of your ridiculous claims are absolute truth as well? please read this before you get banned. No, I said there was only ONE absolute truth and that's DEATH, like religions all the rest is just fluff. Of course I'll get banned, anyone who speaks against Christianity here gets banned. actually, Christians won't see death, just rest until Christ returns to judge the wicked.. unfortunately, those professing to be wise only look forward to a cold grave. what a bleak outlook. oh, and you can have a civil discussion about peoples' beliefs without actually ridiculing the believers. just a suggestion. but i suppose you would only value such advice if you actually had anything worth discussing. Christians want to believe that they won't see death and I wish them all the luck in the world with that, however as we all know wanting and believing something does not make it true, (we would all win the lottery if it was true) reality is the killer of religions, wouldn't it be great if we could all live in our own little fantasy worlds. As for a bleak outlook, my grave won't be cold because I will be dead and know nothing about it, I thought I was being civil, you are obviously not used to having your beliefs questioned because of where you live and who you choose to mix with and I can understand that, Christians hate Atheists because Atheists remind them how fragile and feeble their beliefs really are. actually, I believe and I know, and don't need your luck but appreciate the sentiment. Heb 11:1 Now faith is the essence of things being hoped, the evidence of things not having been seen. the reality is that true Christianity is not a religion, but true fellowship with God. Walking and talking with my Creator is no fantasy just because you claim it to be. calling Christians gullible and peoples' faith laughable is civil? i wouldn't care to hear your rudeness. I don't hate Atheists, I actually pity them. they remind me of how twisted and feeble human intelligence can become devoid of any spiritual nourishment.

    Proof That God Exists

    I tried it. The first question asked if absolute truth exists, and the way I understood how they defined absolute truth makes Einstein's theory of Relativity disprove their notion of absolute truth as not everything is true for all people in all frames of reference. For example the twin paradox where the first twin takes a spaceship and flies it around the universe at high speeds then comes back to Earth. The first twin will experience time dilation (from our perspective) so to him the trip only takes a few years, but to us on Earth including the second twin the trip took much longer and possibly many lifetimes. So the notion that there is absolute truth that is inherently true for all people in all reference frames of time and space is false as I understand it. So I said that absolute truth does not exist, then for the next question the answers make a false dichotomy: either chose the negation of your previous answer, or say that 'absolute truth is false is absolutely true'. The second statement is an equivocation as I see it, since "absolute truth" in the first part of the statement has a specific definition (which the site gave in the first question) which I do not think corresponds to the second "absolute truth" in this statement, so both choices are false in my mind. But I didn't want to end this "proof" prematurely, so for my second go-round I just put in all the answers they wanted. I got to the end with the "proof" that God exists because without God you can't prove anything, and I was disappointed with the logic they were using after spending so much time propping up logic itself. I hope no one takes this "proof" too seriously. cool D-9! we haven't chatted in a while. i think i understand what you are saying.. "(Absolute Truth - True for all people at all times everywhere)" here is my take on it.. absolute truth must be universal. universal as in, it has always been and always will be. absolute truth transcends time. it is true simultaneously at all points, within and without time's confines. it cannot be affected by outside influence or observation. the truth never changed because it was not dependent upon either of the twins' perspective of it. to proclaim that truth is relative is a relative truth. our conscious reality itself is relative. the truth is(for lack of a better word) , in duality, absolute truth exists and it does not exist. both answers are right! lol this is because any concept of absolute truth we can attempt to describe is relative to our individual perceptions. in unity, absolute truth just is. unified with God through Jesus Christ, Christians "know" absolute truth as far as it can be known on this side of eternity. partaking of the fruit from the tree of knowledge, caused our fall from unity with God. because absoluteness is devoid of relativity, then only that which is infinite can be absolute. my brain hurts.. if you disagree with their definition, how would you word it? God bless.

    Proof That God Exists

    I don't understand the question? Please elucidate or at the very least expound? The Topic is 'Proof that God exists', which everyone seems to agree with, I am asking, 'If there is proof that a God exists why are religions still called FAITHS?' I would also add that, 'if there was proof that a God existed there would be no Atheists'. Christians also don't seem to know what evidence is, they think everyone has their own evidence, evidence is only evidence if it can be seen to be evidence by everyone, feelings do not count as evidence. Religions are called 'faiths' because they are not backed by evidence, faith is required when there is no evidence. We only ever use faith where religion is concerned, we never use faith for anything else, faith is synonymous with religion. evidence of a Creator is plainly seen in creation so that man has no excuse. this alone should be proof enough to a prideful man bereft of an all-encompassing knowledge of the experience in which he is confined. on the contrary, it has been rightfully stated that it requires more faith to state that there is no evidence for God. faith is required because finite man cannot see infinite God and live, not because there is a lack of evidence. and faith is not restricted to religion. i have faith that you will respond to this post, but i have no evidence. since you cannot know that the sun will be shining tomorrow, you must have faith that it will be when you arise.

    The Book of Revelation/Past or Future

    The earthly high priest did not review any books (as far as I know). However, each person did come up in review before God on this day. "And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people." Lev 23:28-30 So while the high priest did not open a book, God did review each believer. yes, ON the Day of Atonement. the Final Day of Atonement which that OT Type pointed to. The same day the sins of the WORLD were judged. God's TOTAL Wrath was loosed upon His Son for ALL SINS. by faith in Christ's sacrifice, YOU have been judged INNOCENT. and you are just stretching it now. if God did the reviewing, then this was not a picture of our High Priest's ministration. This is correct. We are the temple of the Holy Ghost. However, the writer of Hebrews is clearly talking about the heavenly sanctuary and not our earthly body's. Notice what Hebrews says - "For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us." Hebrews 9:24 So....my question is according to Hebrews 9:24, is "heaven itself" us? Or is heaven itself....heaven itself? agreed, the heavens themselves. God bless

    Which miracle would you like to see.

    i would love to have been present to witness Jesus command Lazarus to rise from death. "Take away the stone... Lazarus, Come Forth!" whew... but by far....this was the most excellent miracle: John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

    thanks for responding gray wolf. i agree. faith is indeed called for because, even when we think something to be true, there exists the possibility that it is false. http://www.proofthatgodexists.org/why-is-god-necessary.php so an absolute truth must logically exist, with or without my knowledge of it. considering my finite viewpoint, who am i to define it?

    The Book of Revelation/Past or Future

    the books are kept because God requires payment for sin. where is there even a hint of an OT type where the High Priest is examining books in the Most holy place? well, of course. 2 John 1:9 Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. The one abiding in the doctrine of Christ, this one has the Father and the Son. that is exactly what you are doing, because there is no judgement performed by the earthly High Priest. and i am not arguing against an anti-typical application. Christ's death fulfilled the slaying of the goat. He rose from the dead, ascended, and took His blood DIRECTLY to the mercy seat. the entire sanctuary service was based upon sacrifices, which have ceased, and thus the services have ceased. 1) like sin that's washed away 2) no, the sanctuary service typified Jesus. The prototype. The first-born among many brethren. a temple built with no hands. the Holy Spirit of God does abide in you if you are abiding in Christ, correct? 3) that is the heavenly sanctuary, where there is no longer goat-slaying. where did i deny a heavenly sanctuary exists?
