Sorry, I tend to lash out and insult people who directly insult me. One of my failings as a human.
You seem sincere and sober, so I’ll answer you in kind.
“All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.”
This does not allow for all flesh having evolved from one organism.
Sorry, my computer is archaic! I can’t respond any faster. Perhaps you could dictate a moral law then, since God’s is obsolete.
As for the difference between the koran and the scriptures, the cross (a symbol of God the Son dying for His people) and the man on a white horse with a sword(believe in what I say or die) would be a start.
If believing in the infallibility of the Scriptures, repenting and believing is wrong in the end, I won’t have lost much. However, if unbelief is wrong in the end, then all is lost.
No, but my best friend was.
I appreciate your apology. No, you didn’t really offend me, but thank you for the apology. I have found that respecting others religious beliefs, and asking them to respect yours is about the only way to have a civil discussion on religion. Have a good evening.
I don’t see where I said God’s law is obsolete. I have merely said that a literal interpretation of the Bible is incorrect and any rational person will concede that the Bible (especially the old testament) is not literal truth.
I won’t even go into the development of the Bible by the Catholic Church in the middle ages or the earlier decisions by scholars of the Torah who decided which works should or should not be included.
What is important is that Jesus existed and what he taught. That’s it that is all that is important. The Fact of Jesus does not even need the Torah, the old testament, or even the Jewish faith at all. it is sufficient that Christ existed.
The old testament is unfortunate in many ways and is like a stone tied around the neck of Christianity allowing many of it’s literal adherents to keep a large portion of Christians mired in medieval dogma better suited to an age of superstition.
Note that the date of the column is 2004. Farrah’s “nationally syndicated” (and obviously much listened-to) radio show went belly up in 2005. Why we’re paying this clown any attention at all is beyond me.
Thank you and yes, I am sincere and sober. I see where you are coming from.
I also see that God allows a seed (one body) to become a plant (another body). “37When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.”
Your interpretation may be right. However, reasonable Christians could also believe that the seed turning into plant could be similar to the reptiles turning into birds. IMO the important thing in this scripture is that Jesus conquers death. We live forever through him. It makes the entire evolution debate seem kind of insignificant.
Look; the one thing I have to say about your view (and I don’t doubt your sincerity as a Christian, or that God has renewed you through The Holy Spirit, through belief in His son, as your savior), but I HAVE TO SINCERELY ASK:
Question: How can you claim to believe in Christ’s miracles in the Gospels, the power of God (Through the H.S.) to conduct miracles with NT Believers, OT Prophetic miracles (AND even Propocies Fulfilled!), and then Deny God’s power in Genesis..?
At least how don’t you believe these other examples are “allegory”, but WILL assign it to Genesis..? They are mutally exclusive!
One has lied (Either the Bible is correct: fully, which was referenced as having been true; Aka literal in the NT by several (The Apostle Paul included; I believe..).
Or the “darwinists” have lied (or been mistaken).
Once again I am NOT questioning your Christianity, in fact I probably believe you ARE a True Christian, but I do question your faith in the “scientific theory- theocratic evolution”..in light of the true claims of scripture.
What was the title of your uncle’s thesis and at what school did he defend it? What are some of the papers he wrote?
And don’t be intimidated by the blow hard, intellectual pipsqueaks who bluster and bully people in order to disguise the fact that they’ve had almost 150 to prove their bogus theory and they have abjectly failed to do so.
I understand all the development and translations which took place in church history. I also don’t take all things in the Bible (Old and New) as literally. (Jesus said “I am the door”)
However, the Old Testement does contain deep truths of God, historical facts, examples for us etc..... and cannot be shrugged off as a burden.
That being said, “We see through a glass darkly, but then face to face”. have a good night.
Your best friend was what?
I love it when people post all these absolutes about how evolution is a conspiracy or that there is absolutely no proof. Gotta love someone with such faith and so little vision. You do know the Internet was created by those same conspirators who made up evolution to destroy Christianity. Maybe you need to think on that a bit and throw the devil’s computer away. Superstitions and conspiracy same side of the coin but different names for a different time.
Like what? Name one shred of actual "evidence" for Evolution. Just one. Any one. Please.
