"Until then, feel free to limit God to your understanding of Him." - EVERYONE's definition of God HAS to be limited to their understanding of Him. Some claim to have an understanding that goes beyond that. However, when you ask them to explain that understanding they become rude and insulting. A clear sign that they … Read more

1- “the church He established to interpret his words accurately” – a rather biased use of the word “accurately”.

"God wants His children to reach certain conclusions on their own." based on God's words, right? If your answer is yes, then you'll agree that for a Christian God's words are to be found in the Bible, right?

Do we really need audio cassette tape recorders? At one time there were so many to choose from, but now nobody sells any. The demand [need] for them has vanished  because the role they played has been taken over by better more reliable equipment.

What does Romans 5:12 mean? Death through sin?Romans 5;12 says, "Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—"
