• Since most people do not obey God's laws, democracy is just a pointless exercise and benefit those harmful to mankind?

    I think you have a good point. If 51% of the people are evil then you have a serious problem in a democracy. Remember Hitler was voted in, they were a democracy. People that think a democracy prevents moral collapse, it doesn't and it won't.

  • Do people who divorce go to hell?

    There is no such thing as divorce (religiously). What i mean is you can go live in separate homes on other sides of the country, file some human paperwork, but they are still married according to Christianity. So the sin would come in when they start sleepign with other people because then they woudl commit adultery

    Best answer: Today it is popular to think of the Middle East as scientifically and militarily backwards but about the year 900-1200 the Muslims were equal to if not more powerful than Europe scientifically and militarily. And the Muslims used this to their full advantage try to conquer lands (just like powerful nations many times do to weaker nations). Muslims had marched as far north as Spain (there are still mosques in Spain today from 800 AD still living proof of how far they marched and conquered). There was reall Christian concern that Muslims would march and take over the entirety of Europe. It was for this reason the Pope called the Crusades. You might have heard the term "holy war". but it really was because it was a pivotal moment in history for Christianity to surive. Peasants, farmers, Christian knights all fought side by side to save Western civilization from the warring Muslim hordes. They were the original "greatest generation". The future of human civilzation weighed in the balance and these simple farmers & family men proved victorious

False teachings create "bad Christians" that's why it's important people choose the correct version of Christianity. Jesus founded only one church, the Catholic Church.

Think of some of the great saints who deeply repented, who truly experienced a metanoia. St. Paul did a complete about-face. He went from persecuting the followers of Christ to championing their cause and suffering with them. St. Augustine of Hippo turned from fleeting unmarried sexual pleasure and unsatisfying philosophical pursuits to a totally fulfilling surrender to the will of God. https://www.ncronline.org/blogs/making-d...

    The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all equal. Keep in mind, however, that equal does not mean identical. "Father, Son and Holy Spirit are, in theological terms, subsistent relations.The Father is Father to the Son, the Son is Son to the Father, and the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son. There is a real distinction between the Three Persons, though they are all the same substance. Is the Father supreme among them? We might say that he is a kind of “first among equals.” The Father is unbegotten Now, Jesus’ obedience to his Father isn’t a sign of inferiority but rather a sign of the fullness of his Sonship. As the perfect Son he shows perfect love to his Father – and what better way than through perfect obedience? Obedience, moreover, doesn’t necessarily connote a superior-subordinate relationship. Think of a husband who is quick to fulfill his wife’s wishes, or vice versa. Both are equal in dignity, and we wouldn’t think of an obedient spouse necessarily being “under the other’s thumb.” Rather, obedience can be one of the highest expressions of love between spouses. Or think of a parent who is up late at night with a sick baby. The parent, in a sense, is obedient to the needs of the little one. Yet we would likely see this as an act of love, not subordination" https://rcspirituality.org/ask-a-priest-...

In Greek it is Pascha (That is their name for Easter), in Latin the name is Pascha, in Spanish it is Pasqua. So the point is the majority of the world celebrates the Lord's resurrection as Passover. Only in English did the translation get messed up. So no it is not pagan, it was a problem with people who speak English and did the the translation. the King James Bible makes reference to an "Easter" so it is believed King James butchered the translation and since the King James bible spread quickly through the world the day became known as Easter but only to English speaking people. The rest of the world continued to observe it as Passover, the day Jesus rose from the dead. http://jimmyakin.com/is-easter-a-pagan-h...

It is not illegal to have a little fun (if you are over 21), but if a 15 year old tries to do they broke the law. Similarily God wants people to have sex within the frames of his law (in marriage), and married people can have fun doing it in fact. The important thing is obeying God's laws and not inventing our own. God wants us to have fun while obeying his laws.

    Interestingly, there are 8 suicides mentioned in the bible: Abimelech, son of Gideon, orders his servant to thrust him through with a sword when he realizes he is mortally wounded (Judges 9:50-57). This is indirect, but we will count it as a suicide because Abimelech deliberately chooses to terminate his own life. The suicide of King Saul, narrated in 1 Samuel 31 and 2 Samuel 1. The suicide of Saul's armor-bearer in 1 Samuel 31. The suicide of Ahithopel in 2 Samuel 17:23. Ahitophel, an adviser of Absalom, kills himself after he sees that Absalom has not followed his advice. King Zimri, in 1 Kings 16:18, kills himself by setting his house on fire and letting it burn with himself inside. The suicide of Samson in Judges 16:4-31. The suicide of Judas, depicted in Matthew 27:3-10. If you read the text out of all of the sucides, Samson is the only one the bible calls righteous. These other 7 the bible calls these people wicked. So how could Samson be a righteous man if he committed suicide? The problem with Samson's suicide can be easily resolved if we note that Samson's suicide is different from all the others depicted in the Bible. In the cases of Abimelech, Saul, Judas and the others, the primary intention of each agent in their suicide is the ending of their own life. In Samson's case, we can easily see that his primary motivation in pulling down the Temple of Dagon was not to end his own life but to destroy his Philistine opponents. Though Samson knows that his action will bring about his own death, he is not acting primarily to end his own life. His motivation is the destruction of the Philistine leadership and he sees his death as a secondary effect of this destruction. Therefore, the principle of double-effect comes into play here; namely, that it is permissible to cause harm as a side effect (or “double effect”) of bringing about a good result even though it would not be permissible to cause such harm as a primary means to bringing about the same good end." http://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot.co...
