  • Christians, how do you reconcile these discrepancies between Jesus' and Paul's teachings? I'll list a few at a time b/c there are so many.?

    On being justified: Paul says: Rom.3:24-29 They are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law. Jesus says: Matt.12:37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be... show more
    On being justified: Paul says: Rom.3:24-29 They are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law. Jesus says: Matt.12:37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned. Paul says: Rom.6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus says: Luke.14: 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? On the time of the coming of the Lord: Paul says: Rom.13:12 the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Jesus says: Luke.21:8 Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, . . . `The time is at hand!' Do not go after them. I block those who insult instead of answer.

  • Is it true what I hear that atheists/atheism is not thing and shouldn't be a word?

    Best answer: I've heard that too.
    It's stupid.
    Whilst ever there are theists
    There will be atheists.
    It's bigger then believing or not believing in pixies and gnomes.

  • How would believing in God make my life better?

    I am really fedup of my life. I have done the whole "I only believe in science" thing and although science does have a stark beauty, I have found no comfort in it's cold emotionless logic.

    I am really fedup of my life. I have done the whole "I only believe in science" thing and although science does have a stark beauty, I have found no comfort in it's cold emotionless logic. Science is full of facts and figures but there is no substance. There is no soul. As an athiest I have become angry, jealous and dead hearted and every time I rage at someone for believing in God, I feel like I have died a little bit more. My life just isn't going the way I had envisioned it and I have become a lonely, directionaless individual. The opening lines of the Divine Comedy is perhaps the best way to describe how I feel. "In the middle of the journey of our life, I came to myself, in a dark wood, where the direct way was lost. It is a hard thing to speak of, how wild, harsh and impenetrable that wood was, so that thinking of it recreates the fear. It is scarcely less bitter than death:" At this point in my life, I find myself thinking that maybe I am not capable of doing this alone. Maybe those I have argued with in the past were right and I just could not see it or maybe in my atheistic rages, I just chose not to see it. Still though - after being an atheist for so long, it is hard to accept that maybe I was wrong. So I wonder, how would believing in God make my life better? This time I am not trolling or trying to be flippent like I might have been in the past. I am genuinely asking because I don't want to spend the rest of my life angry and jealous and lonely.

  • Why are Americans so afraid of Sharia Law when Biblical Law is just as insane?

    Killing non-believers: "And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death." - Leviticus 24:16 Killing gay... show more

Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money." - Exodus 21:20-21 Women should remain silent: "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." - 1 Timothy 2:12 "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law." - 1 Corinthians 14:34 Not only is Biblical law just as insane, but Christianity actually has a massive hold over America. 75 percent of Americans are Christians, while only 1 percent are Muslim. So I don't see the massive paranoia about the "Muslims taking over my country!!!!" said by conservatives

  • Why did Jesus' attitude about his death on the cross change over time, from one author to the next?

    In Matthew, the first gospel that recorded Jesus' final statement on the cross, he was distressed and said "“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” By the time Luke got a hold of the story, Jesus wasn't so angry and said “Father, unto thy hands I commend my spirit:” Then when John told the... show more
