You're not a magnet are you?
Ahh haha, I may have some inkling I am married to a red head.
When they finally get around to kicking gays out of the priesthood there will be no more priesthood.
Well, Gee Texas, you are assuming alot. First of all, my son honors the Bible and has accepted a life long commitment to celibacy. His integrity in coming out to his adult Bible study group and in dealing with our pastors, was without reproach. Of course, the powers that be said that he was welcome as long as he was "free of sin". But they stripped him of the ability to serve within the church, after 8 years of faithful service.
Think you got it backwards. For over 2,000 years people have been asking for proof of the resurrection, and none has been provided.
Hi Boris, welcome to the conversation! I happen to agree with you on this point. I have talked to several Bible scholars and they have all raised question as to the tampering of religious text, probably sometime around the 4th century when I believe it was Constantine who requested additions be inserted by catholic monks to make a more compelling narrative when "sharing the gospel" with non believers during the Crusades. This has caused me great concern as I have waded thru much research, with an open mind and a willing heart, trying desparately to discern the truth. This is still an ongoing search for me, which is why I post these contraversal topics and discuss these issues with anyone I can engage with, regardless of faith or religion or neither. As a progressive, I try to give all an equal voice in expressing what you feel and in so doing, I am broadening my perspective on issues the church has turned a blind eye to.
It would be poetic justice if his job was history (not the subject.)
Of course not, for any actual profits.
Seriously, dude. What does your belief have to do with this discussion?
Dominionism and Dominion Theology are not denominations or faith groups. Rather, they are interrelated beliefs which are followed by members of a wide range of Christian denominations.
Says the fundie.
Or if they would just admit that God exists only within an individual's mind.
Sure, but what is done (2000 years ago) it is done, nothing to do. If JC invented new god and NT only version, it would be very acceptable. But what to do when book is different, improved, ... but monster behind is the very same. You can't have NT without OT. Period.
Don't be insensitive, Yvonne is worth two of those poles.
Good point. Those who use faith also claim to have successfully described the world.
When he received an advance copy of the speech, U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld took care to remove any use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" in the speech itself. Later, when journalist Bob Woodward asked him about his changes to the speech, Rumsfeld responded: "I was in Baghdad, and I was given a draft of that thing to look at. And I just died, and I said my God, it's too conclusive. And I fixed it and sent it back... they fixed the speech, but not the sign."
