Bradly, I am all for the Jesusonian gospel, and all for setting the facts straight concerning the fallacies of Judeo-Christian dogma and doctrines. And the word repentance definitely rings of that when I hear it or read it. My only objection to what appears to me to be arguing and bickering is that ...

When one chooses to seek the Father, makes a definite conscious choice to seek spiritual truths instead of mundane materialism, there is a new focus, a new direction and new goals. The former life is left behind, much like the caterpillar's cocoon as the butterfly spreads its wings and flies. The Gr...

Hi everybody I have been following this thread and I just wanted to briefly mention my experience as an evangelical Christian steeped in evangelical doctrine and dogma. The fear factor is a constant, fear of God's punishment for straying, for not tithing faithfully, for doubting "God's Word&quo...

as if God needed scientific verification The UB celebrates the scientific method and the value of the scientific contribution to the reality perspective based on fact as well as truth. Science and religion seek the same source and center of reality after all! :wink: So true. Every day cosmologists ...

Once again for posting this and other study compilations, We have been planning on diving into these papers, but professional demands and travel have required full-time attention. But now we are getting settled into a new albeit temporary schedule and lifestyle, Quite a radical step outside my comfo...

"Right wing Christianity" is an oxymoron isn't it?

And in agreement with FanofVan, globalism is inevitable, but there is no guarantee it will be a smooth transition.

Interesting comments.... whether Q nonsense or not I cannot say, because I don't even know what Q is, except as the bandwidth of an audio frequency filter. We have no way of knowing what is going on, but we do have the assurance from the Papers that there is a structure in place that may intervene i...

Very interesting topic, Pethuel. Thank you for bringing it up in such a thoughtful, well-articulated way. I love the punchline to your story and agree that is is very relevant to this topic. Of course, fear of change is very human and very real. Another saying comes to mind for me, "Better the...
