Or is it just two people screaming at their screens most of the time?

"Your opinion" is what it is for the Word of God says in I Pet 3:15 "...be ready ALWAYS to give an answer to EVERY MAN that asketh you (responses to questions (asking) on HubPages) a reason of the HOPE that is in you..."
I agree, but could it be productive in any other ways. Is venting, is screaming against something you disagree with maybe, therapeutic?
Thanks for your answer and your view of it. I think the internet may be the one place where communication can become a bad thing.
Just getting know what "internet '' communication is becoming -- finding out though how wise are displaying their wisdom and the opposite ones, well take your pick.
There's NOTHING "Correct" but the Word of GOD (Num 23:19)! Otherwise, Logic & Reasoning (Prov 3:5)!
".. an agnostic or atheist has already gone through that process, there is not a structure to crack - it's already been disolved." Wonder how they'll feel on dying bed when no more "self effort" but spirit involved;leaving, going where?
N, You obviously r passionate re: ur beliefs and that's all good. I'm HOPING for non-existence after life. My greatest comfort is the HOPE that there IS no afterlife b/c it makes absolutely no sense me. I'm happy 4 those comforted by belief in heaven
Thks BK! My desire is "None is Lost!" Why not try Jesus?
If what believers say is true, you've lost nothing but time & gained "eternal life!" But if what you believe is not true, OMG!
It doesn't cost you anything but time!
N, You assume that we, who might not believe, were not once where you are on your journey; that we can't quote the Bible; that we never sat for 3 hours in Church on Good Friday; and we were never extremely devout. It's a wrong assumption.
I appreciate your very astute reply & commend your honesty & rational thoughts. I have a dear friend who is a "fanatical" Christian who thought he HAD to preach to everyone. People "stay away" from him. Now he has no humans to preach to. Oh w
In FULL agreement! My tolerance and continued patience is getting a bit thin.
For the love of Pete! She even attacks fellow Christians if they don't say PRECISELY what SHE THINKS they should say! Look at how she snapped at sweet Shyron? bring on the psyche meds. STAT!
(HP must we tolerate nut cases? pls re-evaluate!!)
What bothers me more is the lack of ability to form and type individual thoughts instead of quotes. I feel sorry for ppl like that. Lost, delusional, incapable of forming their own views and opinions, instead siding to justthink what their told. Sad.
ALL are entitled to their belief and/or opinion!
Continues to show how this world is moving farther & farther from the Word of God!
Don't cry PPL when WE have to suffer the repercussions!
Wow, that looks like the most thought you have put into any comment here. Good job. There was a sentence in there that didn't come out of the bible.
Momentary lapse into reality. Doesn't happen often. peeples...goodluck. I'm moving on & out. She has taken over UR thread. I can't tolerate that. TTYL.
In what way was he productive? What did his constant speeches against every religion other than his own accomplish? In what I have read about him he seems no different than evangelical Christians shouting through the TV. Maybe I am missing something?
You're right .. of course his speeches against every religion other than his own !! If I believe in Christianity, for example, why would i defending Islam, and vice versa .. the important thing is does he makes sense or not?
I'll have to read some transcripts of his speeches and get back to you on that. You've peeked my interest, I've never read more than the basics about him.
that's great, if you're interested in this matter, I can offer you any help you want, You seem open-minded and asks questions to know the truth not just not just to make an argument .. Any thing you want i'm ready to help
Mostly non productive yet hard to escape for many of us. Weird how that works. We all want our opinions heard I guess.
MM: Yes, if one gives HIS/HER opinion rather than TRUTH (Word of God) I agree that "...they know inside of their spirit they both are wrong." Num 23:19 says "GOD is not MAN that He should LIE.." but man does!
Holy Spirit uses "people" to teach His Word! If one tells 1 something, & they are a believer, it's their position to "search the Scriptures to see if these thgs are so" Acts 17:11! Just telling! No one HAS to chg!
@ Peeps:SORRY! Matt 10:14-
I like the way you look at it. I too like having someone to make me question my own thoughts. It's productive sometimes. Thanks for the answer.
Prov 27:17 "Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friends." It's ALL good if not given over to "a reprobate mind." (Rm 1:28)
SAD but true!
Agreed: "...maturity...of the debaters involved." This is a "Spiritual" journey folks & anything else is "self effort" = "immaturity!" (Prov 3:5) "Lean NOT to YOUR OWN "understanding" rather move to spiritual things for "maturity!"
Your icon Levi Legion is dark and hooded, but your thoughts are bright and shining. "A person who breaks free of religion will do so because they are looking for something more...something real" - Very insightful.
Thanks for the kind words, Billie. I speak those words from personal experience and much research. I hope other seekers of truth will find freedom.
"...something real?" Heaven & earth will pass away but MY WORDS will NEVER pass away!" (Matt 24:35) Real what? \
"...accept reason?" Prov 3:5 "Lean NOT to YOUR OWN "understanding!"
Yes! "... for the rt person." 1 NOT "given over to a repr
Not Truth! II Tim 3:16 "All Scripture is given by insp of GOD, and is PROFITABLE ... FOR REPROOF, FOR CORR, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS." How can 1 "prove, correct, r instruct w/o "debating?" GOD'S WORD WILL WIN!
TRUE! HIS WORD STANDS! It's man's interpretation that needs to align w/what He says! W/O Holy Spirit, errors occur! Tradition, education, not studying WORD, all play a role in misinterpretation when HS not involved!
Norine, read II Timothy 2:15.
My Bible tells ME what I need to know and it is not up for debate!
SS: When WORD is given, do as the Bereans in Acts 17:11 "...to see if those thgs are so..." However, If one has "Studied" (II Tim 2:15) then one would KNOW!
Shyron, read I Peter 3:15!
Ms. Williams, which of God's words do you think, I don't believe, and by what authority do you question my beliefs?
Shyron....Go girl. U stand in your beliefs w/ confidence & comfort. It is 4 NO MAN to question our hearts! Blessings & hugs. UR Christian attitude is pure beauty.
SS: By the authority of His Word (Jesus)!
When u said "no debate would or should chg that," contradicts the Word of God! II Tim 3:16 says"prove, correct, instruct in righteousness." How does one do that w/o "discussing" or "debating?"
Paula, thank you. Blessings and Hugs to you also.
