    Zoroastrianism

    Hi folks, As you may know, the Zorostrian religion is an old one that had its origins in Ancient Persoa and was displaced by Islam in the seventh century AD. This religion is credited with the folloing ideas. Monotheism, dualistic cosmology, that is, a struggle between good and evil, messianism...

    Demons

    I see what you mean, but there can be properly controlled and documented case studies and testimony from victims and their relatives and of ministers and their experiences. If such evidence is collected from different locations around the world, then it provides a body of evidence. We are...

    Demons

    I thank you dear friend, but I do not intend to get involved in the occult world at all. It disgusts me. I simply want legitimate academic evidence to support the contention that such a world exists and is not, as atheists constantly claim, an invention of the gullible. We cannot ignore this...

    If you read my reply to Lanolin, you will see where I am coming from.

    Demons

    Consider that you are debating an atheist. You are asked about suffering. You deal with the compexities of the subject, but wish at the end, to add that there is a small component of human suffering that arises directly as a result of demonic activity. I never make much of this. It is a minority...

    Demons

    Hi folks, Can anyone recommend any academic studies on the subject of demons? I know there are books on the subject, but frankly I am looking for something more detached and objective. Something that examines the facts and documents the results of a detailed and systematic investigation. I am...

    The Bible Code

    Hi folks, Does anyone have any opinion on the bible code? By this I mean the notion of equidistant letter sequencing. There was a book on the subject by a journalist, Michael Drosnin and a more detailed follow up by Dr Jeffrey Satinover. I read these books years ago. ‘Interesting’ I thought...

    The Commandments

    Exodus 20:3-4 1. You shall have no other gods before me 2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything ... I am puzzled about the first two of the ten commandments. Why are there two? Are there really other gods? The bible says not. Many times, for example Isaiah 45:5...

    Azariah king of Judah

    Dear Lanolin, I must confessed to being somewhat irritated by your post. But the Lord has laid it heavily upon me that you are indeed right. I therefore apologise to you and affirm that what you say is very true. Many of us, it would seem, are trying to keep a foot in both camps. It cannot be.

    Praying for the church. Saving the lost. Like I said.

    Azariah king of Judah

    I agree. There is a definite downward moral spiral and technology seems to be speeding it up. The effects can be seen in the increased incidence of mental illness and people with low self esteem. There never was a sadder generation in the past, than this one is now. I think Christians should be...

    Azariah king of Judah

    Thank you all for your interesting comments. I am reading the bible systematically from Genesis. I am in second Kings, so thanks for telling me about Uzziah in Chronicles. This will add some information. I thought we only had the 7 verses I quoted. I am very tempted to try to say ‘this happened...

    Azariah king of Judah

    In 2 Kings 15:1-7 we are given a very short description of the life of this king. We are told in verse 3 that he did right in the eyes of the Lord, then in verse 5 that the Lord afflicted him with leprosy until the day he died. In our day we accept that bad things happen to good people, with...

    Angel of the Lord

    The wikipedia article on the Angel of the Lord (or Angel of God) summarises the appearances of the Angel in the bible but there is no consensus on who he is. In some passages the Angel of the Lord is the Lord. On other occasions he distinguishes himself from the Lord. Some think the angel is...

    And the LORD was grieved

    Very good point! This was why God didn’t want Israel to have a king!
