Temptations because of scarce resources and multiple options will no longer face us. The time of testing will be completed and finished. All will know what is right, good, perfect.
And if it's a natural thing available to humanity in general, we can expect to see it again too.
Well I realize you can't bring reason to the table but...
It is important to move on. We all make mistakes. Important to recognize
So god made us imperfect for a relationship? God is after family? It seems to me god is kind of needy, for a perfect omnipotent being. Also, I would say it's cruel. God made us knowing we would spend eternity suffering. Suffering for an eternity because we did not believe in something that left literally no irrefutable evidence of its existence. That's not only cruel, but petty. If I were to condemn my two year old to an eternity of suffering for breaking rules she didn't know existed, can I still claim to love her?
That is also true. What a conundrum humanity is...
I agree. The book doesn't bother me in the least. It's people who believe it's the word of the creator of the universe and are thus in awe of it, making laws that affect my life, that bothers me.
My point was that since my perception of what now is like changes, God's knowledge must also change.
Preachers and ministers don't get tax-exemption as far as I know. Hovind didn't pay any taxes at all, personal or otherwise, it sounds like.
What would make sense to you given the story?
The Bible says that we live in a fallen universe. It is our sin that has corrupted it and created death and suffering. God will, in His time, restore His creation to perfection. Before He does that, judgment will happen. Those without a relationship with the Saviour and found to be in their sins will perish in hell. Want to know what God did so that He could pardon guilty sinners?
When was the last time an atheist raped, murdered, dismembered and ate children? Oh yeah
Jesus is God! Known by his Creation and his atonement for sin on the Cross for the sins of the world, for those who will believe.
What a load of crap. The original poster was not only talking about the United States and never even mentioned the United States, and neither did the person he was responding to.
If they're physically and mentally healthy, and don't have small children, I can promise you they're not on welfare. Just an inconvenient fact that those who hold your view choose not to accept.
Artifacts. Contemporaneous newspaper accounts. Plaques. Buildings. Documented eyewitnesses. Court records. Contemporary art. Accounts by enemies and allies. Accounts in multiple nations. Travel records.
The Ottawa Food Bank. Every grocery day I buy Enfalac, Arrowroot, diapers etc. and put them in the box on the way out.,. Which food bank do you donate to, good Christian? Do babies make bad choices too?
Prerogative. Membership in the Kingdom of Israel with all its rights and privileges. A place in the world to come.
Palastine is not a people, they have no "homeland" never have. Sweden so worried, they can take them.
They clearly don't. See the good Christians of CSA vs just as good Christians of the US of A. They ended up in a war over certain moral issues.
Lets be fair and put Rush Limbaugh in charge of the DNC.
I'm just curious why the cutoff at fetus stage? (Full disclosure, I am pro-choice.)
I think you are the one that has a tenuous relationship with the truth.
The assumption part you got wrong.
Yes,you could be right.
Mental illness is real.
The feds have to do it so it would be uniform throughout. That would account for interstate offenders.
Posting these photos that others have refrained from doing so is a new low on PRB.
That's what the badge says, why?
Gee! That's a shame. So, you're saying that the totally bias, corrupt and inept "News Industry" might have to take a hard look at itself and enact some reforms? Gee! How awful!
