Re: How can we know what God would do?

Using what you wrote, I went by my experiences within Christianity and as a believer for 20 years. I did as best I could applying logic to uphold my beliefs when doubt starting setting in. I also held to a pretty conservative tradition, gained ordination within that tradition, and pushed myself to c...

Re: Not Fully Human

I would like this cardinal and sgttomas, if they wouldn't mind, to point to something transcendent. People state they have transcendent moments of joy, when what they really mean is that they experienced a lot of joy. People state that their sex last night was transcendent, when what they really mea...

Re: why is it it wrong to s how the world what they do?

No hate, mate. Do I discriminate? Doesn't truth distinguish [/u]? You're an intelligent man. That much is evident from your posts.

Please do. Not only would I be interested in reading more of your thoughts (you're quite a lucid thinker), I'd also be interested in dealing more with sgttomas' disgusting view of nonbelievers.

Re: How to read the bible

I'm not sure why you can't answer my question. So far, you're following along quite literally with the same unintelligibility as Judeo-Christian and Islamic holy writ. Is your God incompetent at communicating in writing? If your God is as capable as your writ and proclamations make him out to be, w...

Re: How to read the bible

I've been clear, Kane. Your objection was invalid. This new tac isn't helping. Maybe you'll find a different approach. You have a lot of arguing to get out of your system. Which synod were you in? I was LCMS. -sgtt You haven't been clear, and my objection still stands. I attempt to engage individua...
