    Birdwatching:. Crows - A crow with a gimped foot and a smaller bird.

    Thanks for sharing that. Crows are very smart birds... despite their generally unfavourable reputation, they are capable of building limited relationships with people and demonstrate intelligence far above that of most other birds.

    Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly Multiple Personality Disorder) and Faith.

    Thanks for sharing. I'm not sure if I have anything helpful to offer other than a listening ear, but I appreciated reading your introduction. What little I know of DID is consistent with what you have shared. I have personal experience with others who have suffered with depression, BPD, and some...

    The Age of the Universe

    No, but we do well to understand what is within the realm of experimental science and what isn't. :)

    The Age of the Universe

    This is a massive case of confirmation bias and the fallacy of the excluded middle. The discovery of the CMB does not "prove" the Big Bang. Rather, it is consistent with predictions made within the Big Bang model. However, that doesn't mean it is inconsistent with every other theory. I'll...

    Whatever Happened to the Ten Commandments?

    It made sense to me, so it's not "zero sense" as you claim.

    Why the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is not for Today

    There's a problem with your view: Paul clearly explains that individual gifts are not given to all believers: 1 Cor. 12:27-30 Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it. And God has [r]appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then...

    Why the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is not for Today

    Your view is incoherent. There is no need for a separate gift of the Holy Spirit to interpret "the gospel".

    When does the millennium begin?

    "Divers" are either people or, to a British birdwatcher, loons. "Diverse" is "of many kinds". The word "divers" meaning "diverse" is archaic and should only appear in direct quotations. Parables may be prophetic, and they may not. The parable of the land renters (Matthew 21:33-41) is prophetic...

    Prophecy Teachers

    Hello and Welcome to CC... I have a few people whose teaching I've found credible... though as I'm still investigating the subject, I'm not willing to share names. The people who I would definitely avoid are those who either have made specific predictions that have not come true, or who...

    Jesus is the source of all Blessings. The Cross (The Blood of Jesus) is the means how we receive the blessings.

    There are many blessings that are given with no reference to or requirement for the cross, so the thread title is a baited question (as are most from this OP, sadly). He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:45b) The...

    Why is His Way narrow and only a few find it? Matthew 7:13-14

    You're welcome. I was not suggesting that its application is only limited to the Jews of Jesus' time. However, too often this passage is used by narrow-minded Christians to demean or dismiss other Christians, which in my view is both hermeneutically and morally wrong. I wasn't jabbing as you...

    Are the Feasts for Christians or Jews?

    Please... punctuation is important.

    The Age of the Universe

    Then your earlier post should have said so. Here it is... There isn't even a hint in that post that you were "going by science and what we learn from DNA". Instead, with your statement about having read the Bible five times, I guarantee you that nearly every person on this forum who reads that...
