Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

          LOL, you are a pip!
          Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

                  Philippians 2:9-11

                  9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

                  10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

                  11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


                  Securely anchored to the Rock amid every storm of trial, testing or tribulation.

                    Ecclesiastes 9:5 - For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.

                      Ecclesiastes 3:18 - I also said to myself, "As for human beings, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals."

                        Overall, Ecclesiastes is my favorite book of the Old Testament.

                        Not a fan of the whole 'favorite verse' idea - they tend to get divorced from context.
                        Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

                          On the other hand, attention to context may become a tendency to read a specific theology into the text; a theology first reading that is equally troublesome. It seems reasonable to consider whether Christian theology prevents a person from properly understanding the Bible?

                            Ecclesiastes3:14-Thus has God done that he may be revered.

                            Ecclesiastes 3:15- What now is has already been; what is to be, already is!

                            Ecclesiastes 3:17- And still I said to myself, both the just and the wicked God will judge.

                              While I agree that reading one's theology into a text is equally bad, it almost inevitably goes hand in hand with ignoring context, not paying attention to it.

                              No.
