because by the works 1of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

Religion & Theology / Justification by 'getting it right'
« on: January 09, 2016, 09:54:22 AM »
Justification by works isn't a problem, I have never really met anyone that believed that, many said they did 10 years, and will more than likely say that 10 years from now..

Justification by getting things right, you know pre-trib post trib etc etc  seems to be the trend.

When people talk about Wheat vs Tares, they tend to imply they are the Wheat...  just because they read the parable.

Religion & Theology / Pedophilia
« on: December 18, 2015, 06:25:25 PM »
After taking with victims of this 'sickness' I thought, to me, the issue is not if convicted pedofiles should have prostatectomies and orchidectomies, the question is should they use anaesthetic or not.

That might just give them enough strength to stop this.

Humor is the best Medicine / The word is celebrate. Cel-e-BRATE
« on: October 05, 2014, 10:56:39 AM »
A monk his entire adult life, Brother Andrew was responsible for training new scribes in the art of copying by hand -- word for word -- the holy writs. One day an eager new scribe, Brother Jonathan, asked if anyone had ever made a mistake.

"Oh no," said Brother Andrew. "These words have always been correctly copied from generation to generation." Skeptical, Brother Jonathan asked Brother Andrew how he knew. "My son," said Brother Andrew as he shuffled off toward the monastery's library, "let me get you the first volume ever written, and you will see that it is just as correct today as it was then."Many hours passed. Finally Brother Jonathan decided he had better check on the elderly monk. At the library, he spotted Brother Andrew sitting alone in a candle-lit corner, tears running down his wrinkled cheeks. "What's the matter?" Brother Jonathan asked.

"I can't believe it," Brother Andrew responded, his voice quivering with emotion. "The word is celebrate. Cel-e-BRATE!"

CANADIAN COUNCIL OF IMAMS WARNS CANADIAN MUSLIMS ABOUT ISIS AND ITS “DEVIANT” NATURE

TORONTO – August 22, 2014) The Canadian Council of Imams (CCI) today reiterates its past declarations condemning violent extremism and underscoring Canadian Muslims’ commitment to the safety and security of Canada, such as  the CCI’s August 2010 declaration.

With respect to the CCI’s position on the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS), we declare the following:

ISIS has manifested some of the worst and barbaric human behaviour by mercilessly and brutally killing innocent people, looting, robbing, kidnapping and enslaving hundreds of Muslim and non-Muslim women and children and committing all kinds of atrocities against religious minorities. They have displaced entire populations, executed journalists and those who refuse to join their extremist ideology. They claim to establish a so-called “Islamic caliphate” but their abomination does exactly the opposite of what Islam calls upon believers to do, namely establish peace and justice and safeguard human rights. We categorically condemn the actions of this group and its monstrous crimes against humanity, absolutely and without equivocation.

Since their advent, ISIS mercenaries have caused nothing but destruction and corruption and have violated core Islamic teachings and principles such as the sanctity of life and the importance of treating others with dignity and respect. By self-admission, ISIS has terrorized different religious and ethnic communities in Syria and Iraq and they have destroyed Mosques and Shrines of Muslim scholars and leaders. Anyone who disagrees with them is murdered and they expropriate the property of others.

ISIS attacks on non-Muslim minorities in Syria and Iraq, who have lived peacefully for centuries alongside Muslims, clearly demonstrate the deviant nature of this group and their renunciation of the Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of God be upon him) teachings and clear instructions regarding the full protection, privileges and rights to people of other faiths [reference: for example, see the Charters of Privileges to the monks of St. Catherine Monastery in Mount Sinai by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in 628 CE]. Muslims throughout the centuries have honoured and applied these rights in all lands they ruled.

The wages of sin is what?
The gift of God is what?
Romans 6:23

Does John 3:16 say the unbelievers/sinners PERISH or BURN forever in a lake of fire?

Religion & Theology / In search of Truth...
« on: May 03, 2014, 01:22:37 PM »
I posted something a few months/years ago that showed some research that only 2% of people committed to a political party will read a book written by someone on the opposing viewpoint.

I must be part of that 2% as I think it is critical to read about other viewpoints.

When becoming a Seventh-day Adventist I went to libraries and the Canadian Bible Society bookstore to read opposing viewpoints on Adventism. I had to have reasonable answers to question others had about the 'cult' of adventism.

I also read frontpages of newspapers around the world that give different views than my local and national newspapers.

"Truth, whatever that is, math, science, religion expects and even demands investigation"

Are you part of the 2% or 98%? and why?

Religion & Theology / Question of the day re Muslim and Christian etc
« on: November 30, 2013, 11:48:51 AM »
If you were not born in a Muslim country how would have you become a Muslim or would you have?
If you were not born in a Christian country how would have you become a Christian or would you have?

Religion & Theology / Assisted suicide
« on: November 25, 2013, 10:30:19 AM »
In Canada, the topic of assisted suicide keeps on popping up, and the includes trying to get legislation passed to make it legal.

One identifiable group against this, is the evangelicals, according to todays National Post.

If people are convinced that you get zapped to heaven as soon as you die, then why put a loved one though needless pain and some times torture of wasting away?

(my personal thoughts are this, I do not believe in reincarnation that you go to a better place (Heaven) or a worse place (Hell) when you die, but rather believe in the resurrection that Jesus and the prophets looked forward to.)

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
