Re: What is The Word?

Joh 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Re: How do you know God cares?

Do we know His terms, or does He keep them closely breasted?

Re: How do you know God cares?

I've come to distrust those that make claims you listed. To me it sounds narcissistic ; like, 'Look at me, or listen to me, I'm the center of what God is doing.' Lee was a master at that.

Re: What is The Word?

Good catch Igzy. Yes, in his book Abolition of Man (https://www.amazon.com/Abolition-Man-C-S-Lewis/dp/0060652942).

That's why in the Chinese translation of the gospel of John Logos is...

Re: What is The Word?

And just like the pagan priest King of Salem, Melchizedek, God also reveal to the pagan pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus, of Ephesus, what he coined as The Logos, so John could use it. As...

Re: How do you know God cares?

I did that too. I kept wondering what I did, or didn't do, wondering, blaming myself.

Re: How do you know God cares?

I went thru a similar thing. And God came to me. I then realized it didn't depend on me.

Since then, however, God and I have had our disagreements. God can only be as honest toward us as we are...

Re: How do you know God cares?

I think we've been preaching to the choir and it's likely Trapped is still trapped.

I think it's quite possible the only thing that's going to free him is "the least of these," in that it's going...

Re: What is The Word?

Okay I guess we're all such seasoned Bible based Christians enough to know the our translations translate several different Greek words as "word," or "the word."

But I think what is referred to as...

Re: How do you know God cares?

Good post Igzy.

Evidence that God cares is encapsulated in "Mat 5:45* That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good,...

Re: Defining Religion

There's enough religion in the world for people to hate each other, but not enough for them to love each other.

Goodness, I left an unfinished post up while I went off to work. And came back to this irrational heated mess ... all over if God cares. WOW!

I'm more concerned about caring out here than if God...

Well that's brutally honest, to say the least. I didn't mean to run straightway to God-is-dead-Nietzsche. But on second thought you and Nietzsche seems to share in the same despair. I won't get...

Re: How do you know God cares?

I've heard this since diapers. And I'd like to get into it with you, but I feel we need to hear from Trapped before going around and around with it.

Good points Weighing. Matthew, quoting Deut. 8:3 has Jesus saying to the devil in the desert, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."*

What is The Word?

This thread is to determine just what "the word" means. I'm hoping someone(s) can give is a clear definition and meaning.

Re: Politics and the Church

So screw the post-born. I think we should stop procreating, if we condemn them to poison water (Flint) and air, and then don't provide heath care when they fall ill. Is that your pro-life stance? ...

Re: Politics and the Church

Pro-lifer's should also be pro-environmentalists and pro-universal health care. Why care about the pre-born and not care about the post-born? That's not really pro-life.

Doctors prescribe medicine specific to a condition. If the medicine doesn't work they prescribe a different one.

Maybe you're taking the wrong medicine for your condition. Try Nietzsche. His...

I've been wondering that for some time. That's why I try, and sometimes fail, to present Christianity and politics.

Thanks. Maybe we can get back to that.
