"God has always been and will always be. " . . . What? . . . Perfect?

Even the concept of His "Delivery System" (Holy Spirit) is a flawed … Read more

SO your Unchanging God, established a "Timeline" when the Holy Spirit would be needed? . . . So much for the eternal many faces of God . . . . 2 Timothy disagrees with you if you are saying that the Holy Spirit Inspiring men to write the gospels (Plural) was only engaged int eh … Read more

I thought a long time at what a waste it would be to reply to your . . . well I would like to say "Well thought out retort" but I can't say "well thought out without audibly laughing" . . . My description of Faith is from the original New Testament Greek . . … Read more

That you FEEL you have the Gift of Faith is indistinguishable from someone of a different religion saying THEY have Faith. I ESPECIALLY love that the Greek word that Pistis derived it's epistemology from (peitho) is based off yet another religion and in particular the Greek Goddess of Persuasion of the SAME name. This Goddess … Read more

Thomas, all you are doing is trying to yet make ANOTHER claim of the Supernatural to warrant the validity of the Supernatural . . . you are literally in a circular fallacy in regards to YOUR particular belief system. It makes no difference WHICH God you are referring to . . . that your particular … Read more

No I am not . . . you are saying YOUR particular God concept bestows "Real Faith" while other religious God Concepts do not. Unless, of course, you accept that they would also say their particular God Concept ALSO bestows the Virtue of "Faith"? I doubt that you would, yet people with different Gods get … Read more

(39) Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the … Read more

"The "burden of proof" issue is the constant "red herring" in their comments." - So, from that skeptic's standpoint why wouldn't you want Proof of a claim to the supernatural? Are you saying if I told you I could fly without the aid of technology you would simply believe? I'll pay you much more respect … Read more

That is literally what ANY believer can say about opposing God beliefs and it makes you look all the more ignorant - “Of course, if one believes in God, that person already has proof – Of course, if one believes in Zeus . . . Of course, if one believes in hare Krishna . . … Read more

Saddest of untruths – “It might help to you to know that DM is an "ex-Catholic." – Never confirmed, and at age 10 "born again" into a nondenominational church when choosing to live with my mother instead of my father after divorce . . . Doesn’t your church at least have to have “Confirmation” to … Read more
