Re: The Problem of Evil

No brother. It's just that I've been wrong some many times that I have no choice but to doubt even myself. I'm glad that's not been true for you.

Re: The Problem of Evil

Well then I'm in trouble. I don't believe in believing. Just believing admits to there being a doubt. Example : I don't have to believe in a tree. And reality doesn't care if we believe in it or...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Isn't that true for all of us? We only know what's in other heads if they tell us, and we can't even trust that.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I don't know about the aspersion of an evil heart, but it does question the Omni characteristics of God. And a good heart can question that.

Perhaps what you mean is that, the POE if embraced by...

Re: Politics and the Church

Then I guess you are happy that we have made Israel one of the most powerful nations in the world, even letting them have nukes.

Re: Politics and the Church

Yeah, love your neighbor. Trap them in in Gaza, and pluck them off at will, even killing children. That's the way to treat them neighborly.

That's not propaganda. And by the way, you prove...

Re: The Problem of Evil

I'll correct you. The POE has troubled me for a long time. No strategy. Maybe it's an unsolvable puzzle ... without denigrating God for it. And that's why no one wants to dig into it. No one...

Re: Politics and the Church

No worming, at least concerning this. As I have seen it, bringing up anything that Israel is doing wrong, is defended by branding it anti-semitic.

And as far as I can determine they're just...

Re: Politics and the Church

I like them. But it's hard so far but to conclude that they are young and idealistic ... therefore idiots by that standard. Sorry if I offended your sensibilities for them.

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

But it seems ... just like to some it seems that it was entheogen's that woke early humans up to other worlds, filled with ghost-like beings, to worship.

That would make the steps : 1) entheogens...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I think the proper term for that is : Puffery. It's used in advertising and sales pitching all the time, and you can't believe any of it. It works on the simple-minded, the ignorant, and on suckers.

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

All this talk of free will. Was Adam's free will involved to get created? And what kind of free will is there in dying?

Re: Politics and the Church

More the latter, than former. AIPAC is gunning for them. And history of modern Israel reveals they can be ruthless.

Maybe the fruit was a hallucinogenic, and was attributed to God, cuz God made it. And like hallucinogenics, they found God.

Interesting discussion.
