    3 Tactics Calvinists Use Against Non-Calvinists

    I'm not sure that "Calvinism" was specifically defined, so my response is focused around the TULIP acronym provided. Although more Calvinist-leaning than Armenian-leaning, I believe some aspects of both beliefs have scriptural support. T = TOTAL DEPRAVITY = No one can believe the Gospel unless...

    FLAT EARTH

    Further to the above from GaryA - America and South Africa don't lie on the "edge". If you visualise the Earth as a flat plate, with America and South Africa somewhere between the hub and the rim, you will understand you do not need to cross the edge of the plate to get from one to the other.

    But God directly created them, which is why scripture refers to them as His sons. Even pagans could understand the difference between man and angels, but they attributed angels to false gods, rather than the true God. Daniel 3:25 He said, "Look! I see four men walking around in the fire...

    nephilim

    Luke 3:38 the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. A "son of God" refers to one who God directly creates - Adam, the angels, Christians (we are a new creation in Christ). If the term was not used to refer to one after he had rebelled, Adam would not be referred to as...

    Mass Shootings

    Mass shootings occur in all the countries they want gun control in. Out of all, the American people seem most switched on to the hoax, possibly because of their history and second amendment. It's kind of funny the way the gun confiscation laws are all ready to go and just waiting for a mass...

    FLAT EARTH

    The sun does indeed sometimes set slightly above the horizon. Why would it set above the horizon, if due to the rotation of the Earth? This is dependent on the height and distance of the sun. Lower height and further distance would mean lower angle. You do realise that for a number of months...

    FLAT EARTH

    Exactly. So enough matter, whether it be cloud, vapour or atmosphere, will prevent sunlight coming through. Not according to Flat Earth theory. Sunrise and sunset occur because the sun is at the point where just a little bit more atmosphere will block it completely. You see the top of the sun...

    FLAT EARTH

    I don't disagree. But clean air is less dense than dense fog. But can you disprove this idea, or conversely, prove that sunlight can be seen through a few thousand miles of (ground-level) atmosphere? If not, 'tis just one theory versus another.

    Demonising circumcision - a win for human rights, or loss for medicine/religion?

    I agree - these things are terrible, but don't you think they're the result of society, rather than just men? For example, I find it hard to believe any red-blooded man, left to his own devices, would think of any female body part as ugly, or say to himself "The breasts on that lady are too...

    Who is smarter, man or God?

    Lol! Didn't you know that's why guys have several appointments with a barber each year, but only one appointment with the mohel/obstetrician? The part in red doesn't make sense to me. The circumcised (cut around) skin around is useless (except in those jokes about mohels) and therefore is...

    Who is smarter, man or God?

    Lol. Whereas males are probably thinking "I'm glad I don't remember that!" I agree. Some also say that circumcisions performed today are generally more complete than those done in bible times. So if in bible times, only the tip of the skin was removed (I suppose leaving some for protection)...

    FLAT EARTH

    It's easily demonstrable. Heard of fog-lamps, and why they are used? Fog is the same amount of atmosphere, just packed into a much smaller space.

    FLAT EARTH

    In a dome-sky model, the meteor(ites) can simply be pieces of sky (i.e. the dome). The stars move within a shell or shells inside the firmament (dome), so comets would simply be on a different trajectory, similar to the planets, but far enough out to be invisible most of the time. Remember...

    Who is smarter, man or God?

    I know! Talk about making a mountain out of a mohel. :cool: A misery or a mystery? :) I don't think God changed His mind. What God made was very good, but then sin entered into the world. Circumcision's purpose wasn't to correct a defect, it was to symbolise the covenant He made with Abraham, as...

    Demonising circumcision - a win for human rights, or loss for medicine/religion?

    Well, one of the reasons for the post is that it is becoming increasingly popular by some to claim male circumcision is the male equivalent of Female Genital Mutilation. Remember that FGM was not always illegal in the US, and it is only better education that has resulted in the practice becoming...
