This thread was started by Trapped asking for help for how to help a sister that's so depressed she can't go to meetings.

Re: Depression and the LCs

Sorry you see it that way. I see the writers of the books of the Bible as fallen human beings, like you and I. I don't think that demeans them any more than it demeans you and I. I guess you see...

Re: Depression and the LCs

Good point bro Igzy. I don't know why Trapped wanted verses -- maybe he'll tell us.

But Jo S may be onto something. The authors writing 2/3 thousand years ago knew nothing of our modern age ;...

Re: Depression and the LCs

Bro Trapped, the only one that comes to mind is not specific to Christ but since Jesus said he only speaks what the Father tells him :

Gen 6:5-6 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great...

Re: Is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, evil?

Are you talking about Adam and Eve here?

Me : Yes.

If so, I wrestled for a long time with that one too. I thought that even our fallen human justice system doesn't judge people for actions...

Interesting response bro Trapped. Thanks. Just some comments, thoughts, and responses :

And if held accountable, we should be accountable for our infractions, and not those of some early ones...

Re: Is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, evil?

Which came first, sin or free will?

If we have a demon, we don't have free will.

If we have Satan in us we have no free will.

If we have sin in us we have no free will.

Cuz all of the...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

That's better than burning testimonies in the meetings while abusing young daughters at home, like one brother in the c. in Ft. Lauderdale, that was revealed by the daughters when grown up. And I...

Re: Climate Change

Thanks for posting. I caught wind of this a couple weeks ago.

Let's face it. At bottom the problem is human population explosion. In 1900 the human population was less than 2 billion. Now it's...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Thanks for the compliment. Maybe you don't know that the early 1st c. Christians were called atheists. Cuz they didn't believe in and worship the pagan deities. But how could they be atheists? ...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Begrudgingly. I love Jesus. As far as I can see Jesus was the highest teacher of morals a ethics, as he taught love.

And yes. I'm an atheist. As are you. Do you believe in any of the Greek...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Right on the canon, wrong on Jesus in the flesh. I believe that Jesus was a historical man in the flesh. I understand the arguments of the docetists and mythicists, but disagree. I think the...

Here we are again, discussing the real God -- the real Jesus -- and the fake God in the book of Revelation.

Joe can't feel the warm touch of a human anymore, Robert Kraft can't get a rub and tug any more, maybe Joe can give Robert a happy ending, and all can find happiness.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I've done what you've advised. I've read the last book ... many times. It's why I see evil coming from a "loving" "Savior."

That's why I say the book is nothing but a troublemaker. It doesn't...

So are you saying that if the problem of evil we have to deal with today doesn't work, God's going send even more evil?

That has been blown completely out of proportion, by parties on both sides. It smells of Trump's way of doing things, against opponents. Ya can't be anti-MAGA hats, without it costin' ya ... "10...
