  1. Mental Illness

    Really? When psychology, as we know it did not even exist in the 1st century? Chapter and verse . . .
  2. This year's "Christmas is Satanic" debate

    Yep. Only took 5 pages for a couple people to start calling other people's salvation into question over a holiday. And they are repeat offenders when it comes to that kind of behavior.
  3. Correct, if your Bible has nothing but the Old Testament in it. In the New Testament, there are no dietary restrictions. You can ignore that for yourself, but you can't make the passages that talk about it magically go away because you wish they were not there . . . Legalism is only practiced by people who have no clear understanding of what grace actually means . . .
  4. Luckily, we have passages in the New Testament that directly refute legalism like this, even though legalists continually dismiss them as if they do not exist. Romans 14:1-10 1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. 2 One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. 4 Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. 5 One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. 8 If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9 For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. 10 You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. Colossians2:13-17 13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. 16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. 1 Timothy 4:1-5 1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. There are no dietary restrictions that apply to Christians. Your posts stand in direct violation and conflict with the verses above.
  5. Barbie's first hijab!

    Unless you can demonstrate any religion, besides Islam, that routinely stones people to death every day, right now you don't have a valid point.
  6. This year's "Christmas is Satanic" debate

    The fun has already started in the other thread. Implying that very few people read the Bible and that's why we are so stupid and celebrate Christmas.
  7. This year's "Christmas is Satanic" debate

    Decorum usually demands that you wait until after Thanksgiving. Then people start the holiday tradition of calling you a Satanist, post bogus assertions that Jeremiah 10 is describing a Christmas tree and that if you have one in your house you are worshiping Saturnalia, or some other pagan god. Even they don't even know which pagan god it is and can't tell you when ask which one it is or how you are actually worshiping that god, but that's a small point. Of course, your salvation is going to be called into question as well, but that's part of the fun . . .
  8. Guns or security guards in churches

    I think what you are failing to fully realize is that if I am correct, and it actually is sacrilegious and you're just blowing it off, the problem isn't me. You have a bigger problem. You can disparage me, but when accounting time comes around, you won't be able to do that with the one you have to settle up with. So have fun with your .jpg's and passive insults.
  9. One World Church?

    I've been seeing this group or that group saying that WW III was just around the corner since grade school. That was the 60's. North Korea, China, nor Russia are not going to start a 3rd world war. Yes, there are churches that are cozying up to the RCC but churches that stay true to the Word are not. The number of those churches are shrinking, but such churches will never embrace things like the RCC, The Emergent Church or the NAR movement. Most of this Doomsday stuff is not going to occur until, or close to the time the Antichrist rises.
  10. How can a person be TRULY saved in this situation

    How did you discern that the verse itself was an insult? lastofall dropped the verse in on sky hooks and no poster was quoted in the post so none of us know why it's there or who it was aimed at. People do this all the time. It's what I call a "drive-by post."
  11. Even so, out of respect to the posters here who have had experience with this, I would leave that sentiment out of the thread.
  12. Guns or security guards in churches

    I never said you could not post anything. Please quote exactly where I said that and which post. If you can't, I'd let that particular accusation drop. Since you have no problem with the picture, and it is perfectly acceptable because the gun is a "Winchester," maybe you, or someone else could Photoshop it, put a .44 Magnum in Jesus' hand and then put a quote bubble in it with Jesus saying: "Do you feel lucky? Well, do 'ya, Punk?" What a hoot that would be.
  13. Adam and Eve as Genealogical vs Genetic Ancestors

    I'm not justifying those kinds of posts, but if you are going to come onto a Christian forum and assume the position of being the Prophet from the mountaintop sent to tell the unwashed masses that homosexuality is now perfectly OK to God, you have to expect some push-back. SkyWriter is not just at odds with other posters, he is posting stuff that is 180 degrees out from actual biblical truth. His positions cannot be defended in any way, biblically. It is not "pack mentality" for more than one person to point out that someone is posting stuff that is pretty much open heresy.
  14. Two questions

    There are no such things as "ghosts." When a person dies, they go one of two places. Their "dis-embodied spirit" does not wander around here on earth, anywhere. There would be no reason for Mary to appear to anyone. Any time someone sees an apparition such as this, and it actually is an apparition, this is either a demon or an unclean spirit masquerading as a person. It is not the spirit of Mary, or a Saint, or Aunt Betty. It is an unclean spirit and it's motivations would be malevolent no matter how benign it appears at first.
  15. How can a person be TRULY saved in this situation

    I did not respond to the wrong person. We don't do personal insults here. The statement "Foolish question? Foolish reference" is a personal insult, just as calling someone "ignorant" is a personal insult. It is a violation of the TOS.
