To Christians, if you had to pick someone today, who would you think best fits the description of the Anti-Christ?
We know it is not possible for someone to still be walking in the wilderness for 40 days so this is evidence that this event didn't really happen. Where did the number of 40 come from?
Here are the comparisons between the 10 Commandments and he Book of the Dead:Book of the Dead: "I have done away sin for thee and not acted fraudulently or deceitfully. I have not belittled God. I have not inflicted pain or caused another to weep. I have not murdered or given such an order. I...
Ashers Baking Company in Ireland was found guilty of discrimination for refusing to make a cake for a local gay activist. It was to mark the election of the first openly gay mayor in Northern Ireland, Andrew Muir. They explained it was in conflict with their religious beliefs. I...
Why does God in the Old Testament change his name from El to Yahweh?
If the Lord is the Father of Jesus, why was He called Baal?Here is the relevant scripture:Hosea 2:16"It will come about in that day," declares the LORD, "That you will call Me Ishi And will no longer call Me Baali. Was He ever called Ishi?
I've heard that atheists claim that the point of their existence is to leave the world in a better place. As we know, the world is never a better place. Why struggle through life, learn to love and then die? What's the point? Death makes a mockery of life then. If you are a...
I went to a cat lover's site on Facebook page. Somebody posted a picture of a man holding up the head of a decapitated cat. Can someone explain why somebody would do something like this? Is it necessary for the evolutionary process? Was evolution responsible for that? If you...
Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...
Some say it is psychological and some say it is from devil, like me. Hitler was a devil worshiper and he suffered from night terrors. http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/11277527
I've found in my personal life that when I get my house blessed bad things seem to happen that makes things almost unbearable. It's a common motif on programs on hauntings. Why?
That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.
We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?
The Pope has scheduled a meeting with the Italian president to request immunity from prosecution from the government. The letter sent to the president prior to the Pope's resignation states:An Open Letter and Appeal to Giorgio Napolitano, President of the Republic of Italyfrom Rev. Kevin D....
This picture of the Vatican being struck by lightening was taken just after Pope Benedict resigned. It has disturbed even non-religious people. Luke 10:18Jesus replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.Say same the Pope's resignation is a Saint Malachy prophecy...
Many people believe that hell is about burning and understandably so because of Revelation but has it ever crossed their minds that this is not literal? Fire can only inflict pain and death to a physical body and, of course, will die rather soon so it cannot be a hell that is forever. I know...
This topic is old, I know, but I'd like to ask it anyway. Many Christians will ask an atheist, "Why are you here if you don't believe God (should it be a Christian thread)?" Some will answer, "Because I'm trying to help you see the errors of your ways. Is this...
Can anyone suggest a name for a business that specializes all fields of artisan work?My sister's fiance can do just about anything: electronics, mechanical, renovating, painting, etc. Can anyone suggest a business name because he wants to start his own business. A name to illustrate he...
I was told this, "The Islamo-fascists who captured the planes of September 11 were singing 'Allah Akbar!' as the planes approached the twin towers on September 11, 2001. It was the last recorded messages from the cockpit before impact."Where is this proof of this?
It's a favourite topic with atheists to go through the Bible looking for anything that may support Jesus was a hypocrite and wicked man. So what were these supposed evils?
Jews were delivered from Egypt by God in the Old Testament but weren't delivered from Hitler. Why? Why did God suddenly go silent after Jesus?
There is so much New Age thinking out there. People believe there is a higher power in them. Do you believe you can achieve Christ-like status and how? Specifically, can you be a Christ like Jesus being of divine status? Can you ever achieve Godhood?
There is an enormous amount of symbols associating with corporations, media, people, for example. The question is:...
The number of occult symbols in the Olympic games is astonishing. The pyramid floodlights in the stadium. This represents the New World Order (US dollar bill)The one eyed mascots....(eye of Lucifer)And an allusion of a terrorist attack on the cover of Private Eye
On various occasions I have been attacked because of my condemnation of the Vatican even by non believers! It is more severe than any other topic I bring up. Why is it so hard to accept that evil has infiltrated what is supposed to be a representative of God? I don't want this to be a...
Atheists often ask for proof of Jesus being the son of God. If Jesus came to earth and everyone realized He is the son of God, would you still reject Him as your saviour?
I have heard Christians say, "I serve Jesus but I am not 100% sure He is the son of God..."Is this acceptable? How can one be grateful what Jesus did for us not even knowing for sure He did it?? Isn't this a case of, "I will be a Christian just in case there is a God and so I don't...
It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?
Particularly fundamentalist Christians believe that you are offending God, or even blaspheming, by questioning the authenticity of certain parts. If you believe so, can you explain why?
It cannot be more blatant than association with a pentagram.Which looks like...Which reminds me of...
If so, what is the justification for it?
If somebody truly believed that Santa was God, I would not even bother addressing that person because the insane CANNOT be reasoned with.
We all know the onus is on the claimant to prove his/her claim if they are stating it as fact. Can it be proven, as it would be in a court of law, that the religious on the hubpages forums are insane?
Is Satanism or the Abrahamic religions, i.e, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the root of evil in the world?
