Re: Cal = Igzy

As much as I understand Watterson's stand against commercialism, the one thing I wish would be allowed is a stuffed animal of Hobbes. Oh the conversations I would have with Hobbes!!

Re: Science scratches its' head

Okay, I understand the ruler analogy. Thanks. But this would mean the universe went from absolute zero space to infinite space in a nanonanonanonanonanosecond? It seems strange there is no interim...

Re: Science scratches its' head

I will be honest: that video didn't help me at all (and many others in the comments apparently too), but in reading the comments I did realize that I had made a mental error in my conception of the...

Re: Trapped... Help?

BJS03,

Can you explain a little more what you mean? What are you uncertain about? Why might you feel that you can't continue on your life being a Christian?

Do you have unanswered questions...

Re: Trapped... Help?

Hi BJS03,

Can you verbalize (either to yourself or to us) why you are on the verge of going kind of atheist? Whenever I feel a certain way it helps me personally to sit down and identify what...

Re: LGBTQ

There are several points that have been brought up that I’m just going to comment on in one post. I know this isn’t the best way but it’s all I have time for right now.

Re: SerenityLives

Any sexual contact outside the bounds of a marriage between one man and one woman is a sin, whether that contact is homosexual or heterosexual. Heterosexual people deal with urges and attractions to...

Re: What is true?

Definitely yes. This may or may not help you, but one brother I know made the comment that in the garden of Eden there were many other trees besides the tree of life that God told Adam and Eve were...

Re: Nigel Tomes - LSM's Unorthodox Satanology

My own take is not to take the word "dwell" too far. If a verse said "hatred dwells in him", we wouldn't think "oh, this means hatred is a living thing" and dissect the nature and essence of hatred....

Re: Nigel Tomes - LSM's Unorthodox Satanology

1. Sin is disobeying God. It came from the disobedient action that God gave Adam & Eve the freedom to do if they chose to do so.
2. One source, as ZNP said.
3. What got into man was the fruit...

Re: Audio recording to FTTA alum meeting re: Jo Casteel

Minoru and James use phrases like "this little rebellion" or "minor rebellion" or "little tremor" to try to downplay the situation.....but Minoru betrays things by saying the co-workers have been "on...

Re: Audio recording to FTTA alum meeting re: Jo Casteel

Chris Wilde.

In order it's Minoru Chen, Chris Wilde, James Lee, and Albert Lim.

I guess even the LCs will change their tune about "not caring for right and wrong" when they realize that the...

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I think it's tongue in cheek. The first 30 minutes of the message are basically just Minoru going on and on about Lee, so it does come across pretty bad. I have never actually heard anyone pray TO...

Today's Witness Wednesday is doing me in too:

Do not simply know God according to what He does, but know Him according to what He is. Whether or not God does something for us means nothing.

Re: How do you know God cares?

His will in a specific situation, mostly. With the additional plea for release in the midst of it.

I'm just in a painful situation that has dragged on for years and it is too much for me. The...

Re: Problems with Watchman Nee

Heck, even the distinction between body and soul isn't a 100% unblurred line. Our brain and our mind, our body and our emotions are intertwined too. The three distinct circles are actually quite...

Re: How do you know God cares?

I agree your question is a fair one although it doesn't negate or undo the one I asked.

People know I care because I actually DO something. They bemoan they don't spend enough time with their...

How does anyone know that God gives a crap?

Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Thanks for your response, and I don't necessarily want to focus in on the one thing you said that I disagree with, but it's been a couple days and I keep feeling to return to this point.

Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Nell and ZNP, I think I agree that Lee's incredibly erroneous teaching about the garden of Eden seems to be the major source of this saying.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil wasn't...
