re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Wells, it's not simple...when you say you literally believe in God and Jesus as the Son of God...and then say you do not believe in the literal word of the Bible. It gets back to why believe in that...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

I am so confused now. The more you talk, the more confused on your beliefs I become. Please give some citation where most Christians don't believe in a literal Jesus including returning to life. How...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

The point of Jesus' ministry and sacrifice can probably be made without a literal interpretation following your previous mentioned methods (reason, learning, science, good judgment, etc.), but...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Well you should be able to give an answer on how you differentiate between literal or non-literal. It's your belief, you should be able to explain that.

You keep asking what the point? I don't...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

While I'm a believer and have a completely different view than you, I understand your logic and reasoning more than those who view some of the Bible as literal and some as not. When people pick and...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

If we went through the entire Bible there are many things that science, reason, etc. would not be able to explain. Moving out of Genesis and into Exodus, for a brief example, the ten plagues, the Red...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Do you think He was "actually clinically" dead? And He rose from the dead on the third day? And that He actually did come back from the dead? The real dead. Dead dead.

Sorry, I'm just not...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

I was asking Christians who believe some of it is and some isn't.

There, you can move on now.

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Hopefully it's ok to quote myself. I thought I'd pose these questions again, I'm truly interested in understanding how some decide what is or isn't literal and how those conclusions are made.

No I didn't. I never said they "cannot". I said I support their right not to provide products or services to promote, celebrate, participate, etc. in an idea or event that goes against their...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Normally, I wouldn't respond to your random memes with no commentary in a non-random meme thread, but the four Gospels serve as eye witness accounts and being included in the Bible only add to the...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Science will never prove that Jesus was resurrected, so why is that taken as literal but not other narratives in the Bible, such as the ark and the Genesis account of Creation?

What's the good...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

I don't think God would need entertaining stories to hold peoples attention. Leviticus doesn't exactly scream "entertaining" in that sense.

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

And I guess I'll add, why would God need to put a fictional story to illustrate His redemption plan? His redemption plan is a long narrative in the Bible. Why would it be comingled with both literal...

re: Religion and Religious Freedom: General Discussion

Name calling and judging others? Is that Christian or unChristian?

I must have missed where you gave examples and reasons why it's UnChristian. My apologies, but could you repost or point me to your previous post?

Re: The General LBGTQ rights (or lack of) thread.

There is no wrong or right side of history. History is just history. It's just a pretentious way of saying, maybe someday everyone will think like me.

Re: The General LBGTQ rights (or lack of) thread.

On a side note, as the Episcopalian church continues to go more to "liberal Christianity" and further from the Bible, their membership continues to plummet.
