• What would the world be like if everyone obeyed the Ten Commandments?

    No one can keep even one of the commandments as required. The Ten Commandments are not a rule for life, as many foolishly suppose, but rather bring death since they can only find out sin. And we are all sinners. Of course the self righteous think they can keep them, but self righteousness is one of the greatest of sins.

  • If God exists, why does he let wicked people succeed in this world?

    The problem Mr Stalin is that if God made the world more just, as you put it, then you would be one of the first to go to Judgement without opportunity for repentance and salvation, and yet your need is one of the greatest and your suffering would be very great. Not too bright are you, Mr Stalin? Small wonder you cannot understand. show more

  • What are some characteristics of someone who is “mature” in their faith?

    One who knows God and is taught and led by Him. Put another way, one who lives and walks by the Spirit made possible through self denial, taking up their own cross daily and following Christ. That practical admonition will yield what you ask.

  • The penalty for all mankind is death due to Adam eating an apple?

    No, it makes eminent sense, but perhaps not to the senseless and those unable to think or reason. If all were not sealed in Adam then salvation would have to be repeated individually for every person which would be an absurd nonsense. By all being sealed in Adam so then all can be redeemed in Christ.

  • New hypothetical situation, since people didn't get the point of the last one. Do we have free will (read below)?

    It is God's will that all be saved from their sin and He has undertaken to provide for that. Those lost simply prove that they insisted upon their own will against His. That is their "free will". Your attempts at hypothetical illustrations fail miserably by deliberately leaving out the vital and pertinent truths. All you are... show more
    It is God's will that all be saved from their sin and He has undertaken to provide for that. Those lost simply prove that they insisted upon their own will against His. That is their "free will". Your attempts at hypothetical illustrations fail miserably by deliberately leaving out the vital and pertinent truths. All you are doing is trying to justify your refusal to repent of your sin, and your choice to live as you please, which is in itself an expression of your "free will". So again, how are you to be saved from your sin?

  • Should I go back to church?

    It always baffles why people put the church in the place of God and think to judge God by men. This applies equally to church goers too. It is not only invalid logically but a pretty shallow excuse to throw off God, is it not?

  • What do you think happens after we die? Heaven or Hell? Reincarnation? Void of nothingness? What would you like to happen?

    ...And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

  • What do you call someone that doesn't go to church but believes in God?

    An unbeliever. No need to believe in God. All may know God is from reason alone. The issue is whether you believe God.

  • Accepting Reality advocates the murder of homosexuals, and of users with opinions different from his. What should be done about him?

    He is a Muslim. The Koran teaches all that. The Koran condemns and offers no salvation, or mercy. it is an obscene, egregious political ideology akin to Nazism. It is the Koran that should be outlawed. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf and no one took it seriously until it was too late. So too the Koran. People never learn, do they?

  • Christians, can you tell us what you know about the atheist belief system?

    It is an obvious heart choice to throw off accountability and God in order to live as they please. No need for any belief to see that!

  • If there’s a God why is EVERYONE that believes in it an idiot?

    No need to believe in God. All may know God is without faith or believing. Reason alone can prove God...but obviously not to those unable to reason. But salvation from sin can only be by faith, the faith He gives through repentance. Salvation is by faith as the only means to eliminate works necessarily tainted by sin. The idiots, as you put it,... show more

  • Atheists, who do you hate the most --- Christians or Muslims?

    Atheists hate God most... and as a result they also hate their fellow man. Love of God brings love of fellow man, the reverse being necessarily true. And so we universally see.
