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?

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippian

I'm in the 2%.  Truth doesn't need to hide or isolate itself- you will discover it if you are honest about the facts.

Most people would probably claim to be in the 2%.  :o

When I was younger, I was definitely in the 2%, but as I get older, I'm now into the other 98%, only because I've reviewed so much extraneous material.

"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

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
