Jeremiah 23:25-32 KJV I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. (26) How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; (27) Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. (28) The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. (29) Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? (30) Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. (31) Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. (32) Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
How utterly "Conservative" to harass a business owner for exercising her rights... and get the wrong business. This is beginning to look like Hutus and Tutsis.
So which other planets in the universe have life on them? How many solar systems have we observed with no life present?
Every study for decades has shown that higher education and greater intelligence are generally inconsistent with belief.
Wasn't looking for a Response but if you have one Fire Away is not Have a great day
I assume you are answering the OP question "Why would The Almighty allow persecution, suffering?". If free will is the answer to this, then no amount of praying and asking for help from persecution or suffering will be answered, because it is part of the plan. Absurd and ridiculous in my opinion, but that is what your answer ("because free will") says to me in regards to the OP.
Not just any scribe!
That can't be right - bowling's on Thursdays.
I try never to buy or sell things to or from friends and family. If something goes south, it can just get tricky.
Fifty-teen brazillion genders, guys!
It was inevitable really, what with the 78 cats n' all :)
In your opinion. Sadly for you, medical fact does not like up with your opinion. There is no 'them' to know anything. You can't even prove that the fetus will develop normally and be born alive. All you can do is say you think that's what will happen and is likely to happen so long as the pregnancy follows normal developmental stages. None of which is relevant, because there is no person to take from at the time of abortion. No one has had anything taken from them because there is no personhood. None. Zero.
LMAO! Gotta love it! So, you where raised Exclusive Brethren? If you no longer believe, why do you hang here on Religion?
Can you read and understand text?
I think you need higher standards because if you really think the crap Rev says is intelligent, then you need to talk to an actual scientist.
That you shouldn't eat pepperoni pizza before going to bed... :)))
The scale is 0 for not sure, and 100 for totally sure. Seriously, you penned the OP and can't even figure this out.
I think thats a part of what sets Christians apart, not only does "get a job" invoke some personal responsibility (which many, many atheists support as they should), but it appears they also feel some responsibility to help the community around them.
This isn't a dirty apartment problem. This is a "I just did something to show you I love you and you just stomped all over my heart" problem. And that problem was just compounded by you swallowing all of your feelings. Is there a way the two of you can sit down and talk about how this makes you
"I see by your comment history that you are an Atheists, pro-big government, pro-union, pro-Obama, and pro-LGBT."
and again, the Second Amendment has never been invoked to find a single rebellion of any stripe in all of U.S. history constitutional or otherwise lawful.
The reason why is simple- because I gather from this dialogue that it is you who wishes to take a position of dishonesty and as a result I have little interest in what you think.
Happy that nobody died. That can dampen the mood.
Not true at all in my experience.
I would never abort a baby... In my mind, as soon as I find out I'm pregnant, it's a little baby I have to take care of because it can't care for itself. But, I am pro choice. I have been in a position where I can understand why a woman would choose that, and no woman should have that decision made for her by other people, or ridiculous laws that will only endanger women. So, I am anti- abortion, but I'm also pro choice.
