  1. Is Time Infinite?

    God's, of course. No I don't and find the whole idea blasphemous. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega. Source: Alpha and Omega You're not asking questions to learn, you just want to debate your point of view. I'm in no mood for such a debate.
  2. I've done a little thread/post housecleaning, so your topic may be gone.

  3. Is Time Infinite?

    We have a beginning, God does not.
  4. Is Time Infinite?

    You can't say that. It is nonsense. I mean no disrespect for you when I say that. I am only reacting to what is written, not the writer. Eternity is infinite. You can't slice it into manageable pieces.
  5. Is Time Infinite?

    How many seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, decades, centuries, etc. in eternity? Fix your eyes on God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and the eternity to come.
  6. Is Time Infinite?

    So let's say you need to walk one mile. If we look at the percentage of your walk complete, only the percentage, you will never finish walking that one mile. Plot percentage complete versus distance left: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, etc., you end up with an infinitely small distance you would need to travel to equal one mile. Mathematics has some unusual truths. We KNOW that we can walk one mile in a certain length of time. But by looking at the percentage complete, we will never get there. To get there you need 1/infinity to arrive at your goal. I love mathematics, always have and that's a good thing since I'm a Mechanical Engineer. The Christian philosopher William Lane Craig believes although God created time, He is now bound by it. He needs that as a basis to work from for his Cosmological Argument for the existence of God, in my opinion. I differ believing God created time as a measurable dimension that He can freely move in and out of. That's why Jesus said while dying on the cross, Father, why have you forsaken me. But soon everything was put right. Time had a beginning, but it does not have an end. So in that Biblical sense, time is infinite at least in one direction. For believing, faithful Christians, eternity with Jesus is infinite and a measure of time somewhat meaningless.

    Back to time, some scientists believe that when the entropy in the universe reaches equilibrium, the universe is dead. So as the space between celestial objects increases, there will be less and less energy interaction. The universe ends which means the universe is finite. But being with Jesus, equates to a forever interaction with Him.

  9. Secret Societies

    My wife's uncle is a non-practicing Mason. When I did a search (using DuckDuckGo), I believe Skull and Bones Society was at the top of the list in secret societies, except, it's not so secret. The Masons and the Jesuits have public faces, and they have private faces and secret ceremonies. I don't know if there's much below the surface of the Skull and Bones Society. Back to the Jesuits, I wasn't aware the Jesuits had tunnels all throughout Europe. What are they using these tunnels for? In the USA, we have large underground shelters for survival if hit by a nuclear attack. I'm not divulging a secret here, this is knowledge that's available to anyone willing to do a little digging. Then there's Lab 257 where we did a lot of our germ warfare testing. There's at least one book on the subject out there covering it. Getting back to the Masons, I'd really like to delve into their deeper secrets and ceremonies. My writing is a bit schizophrenic here because I have a headache.
  10. I'm getting tired of the constant battles and bickering.  To be clear, it is physically and mentally affecting me.  Why am I here?  Would I even be missed if I was gone?  I am losing my enthusiasm for interacting with fellow Christians here.  The anti-science thinking here is a bit much to take at times.

    I am thinking of confining myself to just Secret Societies in the Controversial section, Firearms and maybe Photography.  If people aren't interested in what I think and just what to change my thinking to theirs, what am I doing here?  They don't need me to validate their own opinions.  I value my time more than that.

      Hi Mate.

      I value your thoughts and appreciate your posts. Don't lose your enthusiasm and don't stop posting here. Many of us would miss you terribly. Sometimes its difficult hanging in when things get tough. I have been debating "Christ," on a hunting forum I am a long time member of and have been laughed at, called insane, ridiculed, insulted, cursed, made feel lie garbage, but I received on PM from one member thanking me for what I had said and done. I must have gotten through to only one out of many hundreds of member there.

      Then I remember what Jesus said, and it lifts me up every time.

      Your friend in Christ, Hazard.

       Luke 6:22, Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

      Eph 4:29 NKJV Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

      I have also noticed a few people whose posts I used to find to be a blessing are turning for the worse and have been very negative.  And even I was accused of being Romish and to be referencing false teachers, so you are not alone.  But this will turn into a really bad place if we don't keep trying to be uplifting and encouraging.  Even when we disagree we still respect and love each other in the Lord.  So I find the hostility to be very bewildering.  Keep reporting posts when you feel you are being attacked, please.

       Try changing to the fellowship areas, such as a hobby or humor for a while, or the other subjects you mentioned.  Avoid the people who have been hostile and don't reply to them unless it is to bless them, and pray for them.   Even try avoiding controversial subjects.  But I would miss you if you left altogether.

  11. Is Hell Eternal?

    But we know this Earth will pass away and be replaced with a new Earth.
  12. Is Hell Eternal?

    That seems rather specific to the time Rev 14:11 is referring to don't you think? I mean it's not really a general all inclusive statement. As someone previously stated, there are degrees of punishment in Hell. Maybe this is just one level.
  13. Discontinuity of the flood boundary

    I have a problem with the OP that cannot be swept away with the slight of a hand. Instead of becoming a distraction to whatever you hope to achieve here, I'll just respectively bow out. I think that's better than picking apart you OP.
  14. Is Hell Eternal?

    I am speaking of the physical place called Hell, not Hell used in a poetic or metaphorical sense. God says Heaven and Earth will pass away. If Hell is eternal, it must be somewhere else, maybe outside of our spatial dimensions. Just things I've been pondering lately.
  15. ~~~Favorite quotes~~~

    In our generation, we selectively value or devalue certain persons based on their usefulness or perceived worth. Some people are simply viewed as being more valuable. And without God in the picture, our understanding of human dignity is naturally skewed. In such cases, the rule of law and practice in society is determined either by popular opinion or whichever political party has the best lawyer. - Jeff Kinley from his book, As It Was in the Days of Noah
