The Darker Side Of God
If you ask Christians to describe their quasi-chosen god of worship,
you’ll often hear such descriptors as “wonderful” and “loving.” This
choice of selective designation seems commonplace within the Christian
community. In fact, most churches ignore the Old Testament all together so
that the members feel comfortable propagating this view. Fueled by such
blatant omission, this lengthy chapter will fill the void by offering a look
at the volume of horrendous acts perfo... 阅读全帖

Lord's Days 8 - 10
God the Father
A true Christian may be aware of comfort for himself, now and in the future,
when in possession of the favor of God. This blessedness is in the hands of
a triune God. The knowledge of a triune God is indispensable for salvation.
This lesson speaks of the Trinity in general and of God the Father in
particular.

Fundamentalists are sometimes horrified when the Virgin Mary is referred to

misapprehension of not only what this particular title of Mary signifies but
also who Jesus was, and what their own theological forebears, the
Protestant Reformers, had to say regarding this doctrine.
A woman is a man’s mother either if she carried him in her womb or if she

Question: "Does God killing people make Him a murderer?"
Answer: The Old Testament records God killing multitudes of people, and
some people want to believe this makes Him a murderer. The misconception
that “killing” and “murder” are synonymous is partially based on the
King James mistranslation of the sixth commandment, which reads, “Thou
shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). However, the word kill is a translation of
the Hebrew word ratsach, which nearly always refers to intentional killing

We live in a physical world with its four known space-time dimensions of
length, width, height (or depth) and time. However, God dwells in a
different dimension—the spirit realm—beyond the perception of our physical
senses. It’s not that God isn’t real; it’s a matter of His not being
limited by the physical laws and dimensions that govern our world (Isaiah 57
:15). Knowing that “God is spirit” (John 4:24), what is His relationship

Reference Only
無論『神成為人,是為了要人成為神』、或『神的經綸和計劃是把祂自己做成人,把
我們做成祂造的"神"』,都亂講,聖經裡沒有這種思想。
但聖經倒有『我是耶和華、在我以外並沒有別神』(賽45:5)、『獨一的真神』(
約17:3)。神『自有永有』(出3:14),不是中途被造或繼續增加的。
神成為人、名字叫耶穌,為了救贖、為了成為人的榜樣,不是『為了要人成為神』
。神是獨一的,基督徒若成了神、神就N個了,這樣就要推翻聖經了。
單單『神』這個字,在基督徒的認識中就是三合一神,不然就得講『假神』、『神
明』或加上形容詞來讓人分辨不同。以下我以對話方式來釐清真理:
甲:『人的兒子就是人。同樣的,神(God)的兒子當然也是神(god)』。
答:人從母腹而出、兒子與父母都是人,因為基督徒從神而生、所以才比喻成『神
的兒子』,但基督徒不能跳級成為神。
因為神與人之間有一條永遠無法跨越的鴻溝、創造主與受造物絕對不會劃
上等號。你不能因那個比喻、就全數依照人事來做無限聯想(不然我請問你,基督徒既

You don’t have to be a Christian long to recognize you don’t always get

Believing in the sovereignty of God is not an option of yes, no, or maybe
within the Christian context. If the Bible is our authoritative guide, one
must believe that God is sovereign. It is not unlike the issue of
predestination. That God predestines people to salvation is not up for
debate, what is up for debate is what it means that God predestines.
Both Calvinists and Arminians agree that God is sovereign, but they will
often disagree as to what this means.

Responsibility and voluntary choice are not the same thing as free will. We

that the Bible teaches that man has a free will since it is no where taught
in the pages of Scripture. The Bible teaches, rather, that God ordains all

for his choices (Ezek 18:20, Matt 12:37, John 9:41). Since the Scripture... 阅读全帖

God in America: The PBS Special and a Conversation With Stephen Prothero
"God is dead," said Nietzsche. Well, maybe somewhere, but not here, as the
PBS special, God in America makes abundantly clear.
I recently interviewed the chief editorial consultant to this PBS special,
airing this week, Dr. Stephen Prothero. As the distinguished professor of
religion at Boston University, his research and books have been wid... 阅读全帖

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time, run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar, go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Well, my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended kn... 阅读全帖

Much of what people do is done in the name of God. Irishmen blow each other
up in his name. Arabs blow themselves up in his name. Imams and ayatollahs
oppress women in his name. Celibate popes and priests mess up people's sex
lives in his name. Jewish shohets cut live animals' throats in his name. The
achievements of religion in past history -- bloody crusades, torturing
inquisitions, mass-murdering conquistadors, culture-destroying missionaries,
legally enforced resistance to each new piece of ... 阅读全帖

Not All Jews Believe in God
In response to my article The Mary Jo Kopechne Memorial Bridge, reader Layla
asked this question in a comment: "... how does a Jew call him or herself a
Jew when they do not believe in God? Being Jewish is of faith - not
national origin."
Actually, more Jews in America do not believe in God than do (1). Believing
in God by itself does not make you Jewish; indeed, many atheist Jews
interpret Judaism as a m... 阅读全帖

来自主题: TrustInJesus版 - Does God create evil?
The problem of evil has vexed Christian theologians for nearly two millennia
, burdening them with the impossible task of explaining how so much evil and
suffering could exist in a cosmos overseen by an omnipotent, omniscient,
and perfectly good deity. A wide variety of answers have been proposed to
this problem, all of which are as imaginative as they are insufficient. But
all this scholarly ink need not have been spilled: the Bible itself tells
Jews and Christians exactly where evil comes from... 阅读全帖

Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.
(Exodus 22:19 NAB)
They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers,
with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord,
the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether
man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)
Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you

Is God Real? Evidence from the Laws of Logic
Most of us don’t think much about the physical or non-physical laws of the
universe necessary for us to exist (and make sense of our existence). As an
example, we usually take the law of gravity for granted; it doesn’t really
matter how the law operates or what forces lie behind it. We simply accept
the fact we live in a world where gravity is a reality. In a similar way,
there are many conceptual laws we also take for granted. These abstract
truths o... 阅读全帖
