when someone states something on here, do you look up what they are saying for acuracy?
do you take a person's word for something about their culture or do you actually look it up before you decide to answer?
No...not really unless it is a scientific discussion and we are on opposite ends of the pole.
If it's important. I think it's a good rule online--heck, in any medium! Too many folks are willing to just make stuff up.
No, not really, I check some stuff out sometimes though, it depends!
Yes. Accuracy is very important. I don't always have the time to cross reference and check the information provided in articles but unless I feel that what I am reading is reasonably sound fact I will navigate away from the page.
But I also allow that perspectives and opinions differ and some detail that people provide is not deliberately inaccurate but just slightly different.
For example some people say that the main language in China is Chinese while the correct way of stating this would be to say the main language in China is mandarin.
As a "Christian Writer" if someone makes a statement and recommends a specific bible scripture, to validate their statement, I will definitely look up the scripture to make sure that they have quoted it properly. Some people not all, might take a scripture out of context and therefore distort the truth. God does not like to be misquoted.
i think that if you enjoy debating or writing you should use the internet to the fullest extent. i agree that chatting with people from other countries helps but we all distort the facts about our own country.
I have yet to see any question about culture or anything else that would need specification. Most of it is gibberish.

Then as quickly as he said that he followed it with, 'But my question is, how do we really know what the will of God is?' Do you subscribe,...

Gen 1:1-4 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. ONLY GOD and HIS HOLY SPIRIT WERE PRESENT in the beginning. JESUS DOES NOT appear...

What is your take on Isaiah 45:11 "...and concerning the work of my hands, command you me."I'm puzzled by this scripture. I'd be interested in some useful interpretations. Is the Creator saying we can command him or is he saying something else? Has anyone had an experience that deals with...
