• You shall not covet your neighbor's wife: if one has such thoughts, does that mean one has sinned, just for desiring? Like a thought crime?

    And how do we stop such thoughts from entering into our heads in the fist place, so as to never have a sinful thought? And if the thought was only there for half a second, is it a still sin?

  • Why are some atheists arrogant and abusive towards religious people?

    Best answer: One of the original uses of the Greek word "atheos" meant "ungodly". For example: I logged on to Yahoo! and had people calling me stupid and making fun of my name. They mocked me for my faith and stalked me. They kept spamming questions and attacking other members by name in their questions.... show more
    Best answer: One of the original uses of the Greek word "atheos" meant "ungodly". For example: I logged on to Yahoo! and had people calling me stupid and making fun of my name. They mocked me for my faith and stalked me. They kept spamming questions and attacking other members by name in their questions. They reported questions falsely and moved them just so they could get cheap giggles. They were very atheos.

    Just know the most important thing of all; Jesus Christ has the victory. As these people hang out online doing this to people, they drive people closer to their faith. The natural reaction to being attacked is to defend. So each time there is an attack, faith becomes stronger. They are the top reason Atheism is not more popular.

    Consumerism wants us to be godless ego trippers. We are easy to sell things to in this condition. These people really are the counter to that. Becoming Atheist is very easy and being pushed on us at all times by society. Staying Atheist while being aware of the ambient effects is virtually impossible.

  • Question about keeping the Sabbath. Why do churches knowing the Sabbath day was changed to Sunday instead of Saturday continue to honor it?

    I sincerely am seeking the answer to whether I should continue worshipping and honoring Sunday as the Sabbath day that I was brought into the faith that way or if I should honor God in Saturday.

    I sincerely am seeking the answer to whether I should continue worshipping and honoring Sunday as the Sabbath day that I was brought into the faith that way or if I should honor God in Saturday. I was invited to go to a 7th Day Adventist Church but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to go! Would I be sinning if I went to their church since we are now under Grace and I am told in the Gospel to continue in it. I'm confused? God said, if you want to enter life, obey the Commands! And wouldn't that include keeping His Sabbath? And what day is His Sabbath? Does anyone know? Can you produce some evidence to back up your claim? What should I do? God bless & thank you for your answer.

  • My Dear Christian Brothers And Sisters What is it we have to worry about?

    After the Lord's Prayer Jesus told us Matthew 6: 25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor... show more
    After the Lord's Prayer Jesus told us Matthew 6: 25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [j]cubit to his stature? 28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [l]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Should we fret about tomorrow or trust that God will be with us?

    The church did not move the priests intentionally to hide them from authorities.

    In the 1960's and 1970's society had a very different understanding of addiction and the human psyche. For instance, in the 60's-70's, a drunk driver was arrested, spent the night in jail until he sobered up, and then was let go with a fine. That was the advice of the best psychiatrists at the time. Today, we have zero tolerance of drunk driving, because we know more about the nature of addiction, and we have seen the devastating consequences. The same is true of sexual abuse. The advice of virtually all psychiatrists of the time was to:

    Single him out for reprimand
    Move him
    Tell him not to do it again
    Terrible advice. But it was universal advice, given to school boards, hockey, football, soccer, and baseball teams. Fortunately, the Church has learned this was bad advice and there are almost no cases of abuse in the last 20 years. Unfortunately, this is not as true for sports teams, and schools.

  • What do you think of "scientific validation" of Saint Paul's tomb? Put an end to Atheism?

    "Basilica's Saint Paul Outside the Walls in Rome has been believed by centuries of Christians to be the final resting place of Saint Paul. Fragments of bone which have been kept in an underground sarcophagus for nearly 2,000 years have been identified as the remains of St Paul. Pope Benedict XVI said scientific tests confirmed shards found in the underground chamber at the church of St Paul's-Outside-the-Walls in Rome were from the apostle. Saint Paul was said to have been buried with Saint Peter in a catacomb on the Via Appia, one of the Roman roads which leads out of the city, before being moved to a basilica which was erected in his honour. For centuries it was believed that his remains were buried beneath the basilica's main altar, which was covered with a slab of marble inscribed in Latin with the words Paulo Apostolo Mart – "Paul, apostle and martyr". Inside they found "traces of a precious linen cloth, purple in colour, laminated with pure gold, and a blue coloured textile with filaments of linen," Benedict said. "It also revealed the presence of grains of red incense and traces of protein and limestone. There were also tiny fragments of bone, which, when subjected to Carbon 14 tests by experts, turned out to belong to someone who lived in the first or second century." https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne...

  • Spiritually: Describe the universe in 1 word?
  • Is it purely ignorance of why so many religious fundamentalists are afraid to send their children to public school?

    Many religious fundamentalists believe that public schools have a hidden agenda, that is, to teach homosexuality to children, to make kids lose their faith in God, and to make kids secular and atheistic. Is the above just mainly and purely ignorance?
