TEN DAYS BETWEEN PALM SUNDAY AND EASTER SUNDAY?

It's been some time ago that I decided to peruse the gospels that mentioned Yeshua's entry into Jerusalem and take a little time to check the timeline between that day and the empty tomb. Surprise! (or maybe not). Count the days. You do it. It's not hard to do. It's all right there. It's ten days.... Sign in to see full entry.

CHRISTIANS FOR WAR -- QUITE AN OXYMORON

But of course Christians have been at war with someone almost since inception of Christianity as a religion -- first against other Christians, Gnostics and others, either forcing them out of The Church or forcing them to walk in lock step with those that had power in The Church. Then one Christian... Sign in to see full entry.

HERE WE GO AGAIN -- HOMOSEXUALITY IS SIN!

A new person has come along condemning homosexuality. He uses the Book of Leviticus exclusively. This has been done before -- and the arguments against it remain. If the Old Testament Book of the Law, given to Israelites, now Jews, is used, then we have to consider a few things. Is it intended to us... Sign in to see full entry.

CHRISTIANS WERE THE FIRST ANTI-SEMITES

Even before the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple in 70 CE, Christian writers and opinion were against the Jews. If you read the later gospels, for instance, you will find specific references to "the Jews" as opposing Jesus, rather than the Pharisees or Sadducees or Scribes, as if "the...

WHERE IS GOD?

Ever thought about that? Well, think no more. You know where God is if you stop and consider, and not let human ideas about god persuade you. There really is no place in the Bible that says God is "up there somewhere", that a place called "Heaven" really exists. Really -- try to find anywhere in the... Sign in to see full entry.

AN OUTLINE OF THE HISTORY OF THE BIBLE

What you see in the Old Testament was mostly compiled after the Jews returned from the Babylonian Captivity, and old tomes were discovered and formed into a religious book. You will find in Ezra and Nehemiah the story of the return and the rebuilding of Jerusalem and discovery of the Torah, the... Sign in to see full entry.

ACCEPTING JESUS

Okay, now here's a question I am asking on the fly: Now, we have many people of so many Christian denominations accepting Jesus and they all have differing beliefs. So someone else's Christian belief differs greatly from yours and yet that person "accepts Jesus", just like you do. Is that all right?... Sign in to see full entry.

PREDESTINATION VS. FREE WILL -- A CONTRADICTION IF EVER I SAW ONE

God, eons ago, decided exactly how many people would be born on this earth and how and what each of them would think -- and over 99% of these people, he would decide would reject him, while less than 1% would accept and be allowed entry into Heaven. The free will that many Christians tout does not... Sign in to see full entry.

DO ANGELS HAVE SEX OR DON'T THEY?

Everybody knows Jesus' statement about angels, that "they neither marry, nor are given in marriage" and assumes from this that angels are sexless. And yet, people will tell you that the fallen angels did have sex with women (per Genesis) and there were offspring. Were fallen angels given having sex... Sign in to see full entry.
