  1. this idea makes no sense though, for whoever lives by it if Mary was sinless, there would be no point in Jesus' coming in the first place. Mary was a great woman, no one can deny that, but she was as human as anyone else.
  2. how is Facebook any different than this? Facebook is for connecting with people, debate on things if desired, and people posts stuff that amuses them. very similar to message boards
  3. you can't post "here's MY take" and then tell everyone else that they're wrong for disapproving of your opinion when that's what a forums is for, to discuss. Plus it doesn't matter what a personal take is on something when the biblical/absolute truth can't be taken differently. There is no point in posting something and then being rude to everyone who disagrees, especially without showing evidence.
  4. Good chatting with you, thanks.  Had to leave suddenly due to circumstances.  Hope it's going well.

  5. check the dress code for the event i say you can't go wrong with dressing up for those kind of events
  6. welcome
  7. so if hell isn't what you might feel it is, then why would Jesus become human and die for us? it make that event just reduntant i understand the concept of a bad environment etc., but I believe that is why we're meant to preach the good news - to reach those people who haven't had the chance
  8. agree, it's the least he could do
  9. It actually is normal, it depends on how bad the fear and dependency is though
  10. Why are you not a christian? are you lacking attention such that you came to a christian forum to announce that you would never be a christian to a forum full of Christians? I'm not a Redskins fan, so I immediately run into a room full of Redskins fans to announce that I'm not a Redskins fan. Unless you are looking for a reason to become a Redskins fan - and just want it to be an uphill battle for everyone in the room. Just my thoughts though. or maybe because he/she is looking for some answers ? i'm sure Jesus wouldn't mind
  11. it's always good to have a concordance, to understand some of the context of what you're reading and what was happening back then and also reading a newspaper can help you bring what you're learning in the Bible on how to apply it in today's world but the Bible in itself explains how you can know God deeper and grow your relationship with him
  12. It's not just Adam and Eve's fault, humanity has deprived itself from many great things and we've been born to a chaotic world thanks to that. God never intended for us to live the life that we have and that's one of the consequences from free will, every decision comes with a price, good or bad. That is why we have Jesus as that mediator that can bring us back to the Father as it was meant to, because humanity cannot do it by itself. Hope this answers your question or some of it.
  13. Can you show that it is? Sorry, but the burden of proof is on you. Wine is wine. But I'll help you out here anyway. In the book of Acts Chapter 2 there is a clear reference to wine suggesting that they were mocked because it is thought that they were drunk. If wine contained no alcohol this would make no sense, so it is clear that wine is an alcoholic drink. Ephesians 5 also refers to wine being capable of making somebody drunk. How can unfermented grape juice make anybody drunk? The only taboo against drinking wine is to not get drunk on it. Again, how can you get drunk on it, if it contains no alcohol? No, it's not on me. I did not say that that never did "wine" have alcohol. You did not read the article that I posted. We just have to agree to disagree. Like I said, I can easily see that many times God says being great includes not drinking anything that has alcohol. No one can read the Bible and disagree with that and have anything to back them up. Disagree with what? Firstly, how did you know when wine had alcohol and when it didn't? You don't. You're just assuming that sometimes it had alcohol and sometimes it didn't. But you have no way of knowing when it did and when it didn't. Then you say that 'no one can read the Bible and disagree with that and have anything to back them up', but in truth you have nothing to back up your assumption that wine sometimes didn't contain alcohol. I'm sorry, but you're just assuming that alcohol is forbidden so you're redefining what the word wine means, as and when it suits you, to fit your hypothesis. Wine contains alcohol. The Bible means that otherwise it wouldn't refer to getting drunk. What makes you think you can change the definition of a word at certain times and then change it back at other times to suit your fancy? The truth is you can't. The Bible was not written so that words can be played around with just to see your own particular beliefs. As for God claiming that somebody was great who didn't drink alcohol, I can agree with you, but wine is NOT forbidden to drink. Yes, you're right. The Bible doesn't say anything about anyone ever drinking anything. It never says anything about wine. It never says anything is right or wrong. You're right, you win. We can't agree to disagree because you are SOOOO right. The Bible sometimes gives instruction to particular people not to drink alcohol, which is understandable. It's not always appropriate to drink and some people are forbidden from drinking if God has a special role for them. But wine is clearly not forbidden for all Christians because if it was Jesus would not give it to people and Paul would not allow Timothy to drink it now and again. And by wine, I mean alcoholic wine. Wine in the Bible is clearly an alcoholic drink otherwise we would not be warned against getting drunk on it. Wine does not change its definition to mean alcoholic wine sometimes and grape juice at other times. If it did the Bible would either make that clear or give us other words for it. Wine is always wine. I agree 100% with everything you've stated Wine is wine unless proven otherwise with evidence, there's nothing wrong with drinking as long as you know your limits - it's about self control, if you (not you specifically, just in general) can't handle it much then it's better not to.
  14. if you accepted Jesus as your saviour and you walk on his path, that's all you need because you're set
