• How could Jesus have been a Jew if He believed he was the messiah?

    Jews didn't believe he was the messiah. A Jew, by definition, would have to reject the claim that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus believed Himself to be the Son of God

    Only Christianity gave birth to science and there are many books that document this, but the grand points are these : THE PRESERVATION OF LITERACY IN THE DARK AGES Because it is a literary religion based on sacred texts and informed by the writings of the early church fathers, Christianity was exclusively responsible for the preservation of literacy and learning after the fall of the Western Empire. This meant not only that the Latin classics were preserved but also that their were sufficient men of learning to take Greek thought forward when it was rediscovered. DOCTRINE OF THE LAWFULNESS OF NATURE As they believed in a law abiding creator God, even before the rediscovery of Greek thought, twelfth century Christians felt they could investigate the natural world for secondary causes rather than put everything down to fate (like the ancients) or the will of Allah (like Moslems). NEED TO EXAMINE THE REAL WORLD RATHER THAN RELY ON PURE REASON Christians insisted that God could have created the world any way he like and so Aristotle's insistence that the world was the way it was because it had to be was successfully challenged. This meant that his ideas started to be tested and abandoned if they did not measure up. SCIENCE AS A SACRED DUTY features again and again in scientific writing. The early modern scientists were inspired by their faith to make their discoveries and saw studying the creation of God as a form of worship.

  • Is Catholicism the only form of religion that views women as spiritual beings?

    As in the ideals of the Virgin Mary, Saint Rose, etc. It seems like other religions, and even other derivatives of Christianity, view women as inferior, incomplete human beings who are meant to serve men. Thoughts?

  • Why does Paul Accuse Jews for Killing Jesus?

    ◄ 1 Thessalonians 2:15 ► For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Judea that are in Christ Jesus. You suffered from your own countrymen the very things they suffered from the Jews, 15who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and drove us out as well.

    ◄ 1 Thessalonians 2:15 ► For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Judea that are in Christ Jesus. You suffered from your own countrymen the very things they suffered from the Jews, 15who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and drove us out as well. They are displeasing to God and hostile to all men, Paul just Said that Jews killed GOD Almighty and said they are displeasing to GOD. I thought GOD Was offering His Blood for them yet Paul accuse them for killing God almighty I am confused Ok and whats the problem? GOD Wanted to die in order to gain the ability to forgive us right? So Jews should be praised for helping God get killed. Not be blamed for killing God almighty. So It was his flesh who died not God that means this is not enough to forgive sins. since his human nature is the one who died. and this Contradicts the bible verse ◄ Psalm 49:7 ► No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them-- Any way thats beside the point Jesus wanted to die correct? then why was paul angry at the jews for killing jesus?

  • Pope on AIDS and Condoms and Africa... Dr Edward Green, director of Harvard's HIV Prevention Research Project, DEFENDS POPE BENEDICT !!!!!?

    Edward Green: What the Pope said was the distribution and marketing of condoms would not solve the problem of African Aids and that it might even exacerbate the problem.

    Edward Green: What the Pope said was the distribution and marketing of condoms would not solve the problem of African Aids and that it might even exacerbate the problem. And I think it was that second comment that really set the critics off, really upset a lot of people. I can understand that, because I have worked in Aids prevention for a long time. In fact, I worked as a condom and contraceptive social marketer at the beginning of the pandemic--I was working in family planning. I am part of a group of researchers that have been looking for the behavioural antecedents to HIV prevalence decline in Africa. We now see HIV going down in about 8 or 9 countries in Africa and in every case we see a decrease in the proportion of men and women who report having more than one sex partner in the past year. So when the Pope said that the answer really lies in monogamy and martial faithfulness, that's exactly what we found empirically.

  • Why does the Protestant media hide that the rate of convicted for child abuse is higher among Protestant ministers than Catholic priests?

  • Why do Orthodox Jews shave their heads, but grow out their hair really long on the sides?

    What is the religious significance of this? I can't imagine God wanting this in any way. Seems totally man-made
