  1. The Nostalgia Thread

    I never saw that show.
  2. The Nostalgia Thread

    She's hot!
  3. The Great Deception

    For the concept of the "triune" - the Spirit of God was also present during Creation. Genesis 1 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. All three were present during Christ's baptism. Matthew 3 16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He[c] saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
  4. The Great Deception

    I'm not sure if John will be back....I hope he does. Why did biblical John refer to Jesus as The Word? What is The Word? https://carm.org/why-is-Jesus-called-the-word "the Word," called memra in Aramaic (from the Hebrew and Aramaic root "to say," the root used throughout the creation account in Genesis 1, when God said and the material world came into existence). Genesis 1 3 And God said, 6 And God said, 9 And God said, 11 Then God said, 11 Then God said, 20 And God said, 24 And God said, 26 Then God said, God didn't think His creation into existence. He said them. That explanation made sense of John 1:3. John 1 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. How consistent. The puzzle pieces falling neatly into places.
  5. The Great Deception

    The concept of the triune God was first introduced on the very first statement of the first Chapter, of the first Book of the Bible. Genesis 1 1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. "Elohim" - which is the Hebrew PLURAL noun is used. The plural noun for "us" is used in Genesis 1:26, Gen 3:22, Gen 11:7, and Isaiah 6:8.
  6. The Great Deception

    I don't think you know where the concept of the Trinity came from. 3-in-1 concept isn't the invention of the Catholic Church. We are first introduced to the concept in Genesis 1. The Old Testament (in case you also don't know)! That belief isn't exclusive to Catholics. See? There seems to be some other major things you don't know......
  7. The Great Deception

    I don't think he's an atheist. I'm engaged with him now in the other forum. He said: Furthermore, he could be an atheist who's read the Bible, and he's trying to engage from a believer's point of view. UNLIKE YOU - you are arguing from an atheist's perspective! That's what makes your opinion irrelevant. Golly....it's like pulling teeth!
  8. The Great Deception

    You may've added "others".....but it still boils down to you (because you can't really speak for others). Actually, check out the responses.....you're the only non-believer hammering away at me right now, arguing on this particular issue about Jesus being God. I think the "others" understand where I'm coming from that, unless you're a Christian (and that you believe the Bible is the Word of God), your views as an atheist (who thinks the Bible is just a book written by men), are irrelevant on the particular subject about whether Jesus is God Himself, or simply the Son of God. That's what I'm on about with John Prewett (or any Christian who doesn't believe Jesus and God are One and the Same). Heck, you don't believe in the existence of God....so what are you doing engaging in that particular subject? That's hilarious - I had to give the analogy about a male arguing in a female discussion about experiencing menstural period, hoping you'll see what I'm saying. You cannot grasp that logic.
  9. The Great Deception

    You're not only the fish out of water.....you also seem like someone with a very huge religion chip on his shoulder. This thread is not about you. The section - though it's for Religion - does not revolve around you. Create your own thread for it! Hammer away! Pour it all out! Vent! Get into full-scale victim mode! Have a good melt-down. But, do it in your own thread.
  10. The Great Deception

    The "we" is meant for Christians. Like I said.....this particular discussion whether Jesus is God Himself, is a discussion for believers. Your response keeps on proving me right. Your views - as a non-Christian - are, irrelevant. How the heck can your opinion be relevant when you don't even believe the Bible is the Word of God! This discussion sits on the belief that the Bible (both the Old and the New Testament), is the Word of God! That's the CHRISTIAN BELIEF! You're kinda like the male who insists on butting in, and arguing with females discussing their experiences with menstrual period! The funny thing is you're serious about this, since you're spending so much time writing your posts. You can give your opinion, why not - but you insist to argue with me! That's all you're doing you know - arguing. About something that doesn't concern you! I don't know why you can't grasp that logic. If you can't understand that logic.....how can you be taken seriously even in other discussions?
  11. CTV Backpedals On Patrick Brown Allegations

    Your response is convoluted. I don't understand what you're saying. How do you know men were denied due process? You should read my post and try to understand it.
  12. CTV Backpedals On Patrick Brown Allegations

    EH? What are you on about? You don't make any sense!
  13. CTV Backpedals On Patrick Brown Allegations

    Eh? Where did I say that? According to you, if someone brings forth an allegation against you - you're automatically guilty! Accusation = guilt. It's you that eliminates the constitutional right to due process. You decriminalize defamation. Presumed innocent until proven guilty! You'll uphold gossips as truths! https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/presumption_of_innocence You'll strip people of human rights! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presumption_of_innocence It's you Impact, who promotes ANYTHING GOES! Heaven forbid no one who has an axe to grind against you comes out now to say you behaved inappropriately towards her 20 or 30 years ago. If that happens, and you know it didn't happen....should you lose your job?
  14. Thank you Trudeau...

    Here's what CBC says. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/colten-boushie-allegations-facebook-rcmp-1.4536830 Why on earth would you try to start the ATV on someone's property without asking for permission? Furthermore, they tried to break into a truck in another place prior to that. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/what-happened-stanley-farm-boushie-shot-witnesses-colten-gerald-1.4520214 Before Meechance tried to start the ATV, someone got into a Ford truck in Stanley's property. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/what-happened-stanley-farm-boushie-shot-witnesses-colten-gerald-1.4520214 Trudeau - and all the ministers who spoke out - are indeed interfering with justice. They are prejudiced against Stanley - casting an automatic judgment that the shooting was racially-based because Stanley is a white person!
