  1. Nonsensical comment. Who is asking anybody to give their house up? Palestinians who want to live in peace can live in peace in Israel. The problem is there are many trouble-makers and terrorists who do not want peace and think Israel has no right to exist as a state. Kids are brainwashed from a young age to be antisemites and terrorists. There is no place for such people.
  2. Safe is a subjective term. Jews have at times been persecuted in isolated incidents in north America. They are not completely safe. Restaurants, schools, and places of worship have been shot at and vandalized with graffiti. Not much has been done about it. They have a right to their own land of Israel. That is historically their homeland. Why should they have to depend on other countries to protect them in places that are not their country. How has that worked in the past 2,000 years? It hasn't and it ended in the Holocaust where about 1/3 of Europe's Jews were murdered.
  3. Israel has a perfect right to have a state organized along ethno-religious lines because Jews have been persecuted everywhere for 2,000 years. They have a perfect right to their religion and with the antisemitism in the world against Jews, particularly from the Arabs (Muslims), they need a state where they can have a refuge and be able to defend themselves. Israel gives them that refuge and protection.
  4. No, I have not forgotten. But in B.C. they only pay part after you pay the first minimum which can be a large amount per year. I live on pensions as a senior and the BC government covers a certain amount of the prescription drugs, but I must pay for the first $1,800 per year for prescriptions. That is based on my annual income. So I am paying a large part of the cost of the medications. Fortunately I can afford it, but a lot of seniors might not be able to. Many are barely surviving on their pensions. The federal proposed NDP-Liberal pharmacare program plans to pay the whole cost of medications for diabetics and birth control pills regardless of how much money the person earns. How is that equitable or fair for seniors and others with other serious illnesses whose medications could cost several thousand a year and they may have a very low income? These days with the high cost of mortgages, rent, and groceries, many people with serious medical conditions cannot even afford to buy prescription drugs. So just arbitrarily supporting diabetics is not reasonable. Birth control pills is not even for a medical problem. They just picked two programs out of a hat probably thinking they could get some votes from the diabetic and birth control demographic. Many young women will fall for this and think they are really getting something. Oral contraceptive pills cost from $20 to $50. If it is closer to $20 that is not a huge amount. So women are not getting a lot out of this anyway. But it sounds good for votes.
  5. Many seniors on a pension will pay the lion's share of expensive drugs for heart conditions and other medical problems while certain people like diabetes patients and women wanting birth control, who might have lots of money, will be covered by taxpayers. Anything this government touches is a disaster. Good that Poilievre is surging ahead in the polls. There is hope.
  6. So seniors on a pension that pay hundreds a month for heart medications and other illnesses will receive no pharmacare but still pay taxes to provide pharmacare for diabetes patients and birth control for people that may have lots of money.
  7. Providing pharmacare for only two groups of people in Canada is discriminatory. The NDP and Liberals have said they plan to fund people with diabetes and those who need birth control. What about the millions of people who have other health problems and require expensive medications for heart disease and various other problems? They pay the same taxes according to the tax regime. Are they not worthy of support too? I hope many people challenge this in court as a form of discrimination and contrary to the Charter of Rights.
  8. The NDP and Liberals seem to be making a deal to bring in pharmacare for two groups of people in the country, people with diabetes and people using birth control. This ignores the millions of other Canadians who have to pay for expensive drugs for heart disease and all sorts of other illnesses. We all pay taxes according to the tax regime and therefore everyone should receive the benefit of any programs paid for by these taxes. Cherry picking certain beneficiaries is discriminatory. It would not surprise me if some people will challenge this under the Charter of Rights as a form of discrimination.
  9. When the verses use the word believeth, believe, or similar it obviously amounts to the same thing. Any one with even a basic knowledge of grammar would know that.
  10. Controlling access to pornography is not the solution. That actually promotes the idea that porn is ok by creating a process to be able to access it. That is totally wrong. quote By far, the most searched-for terms on the internet are related to pornography. Pornography is rampant in the world today. Satan has succeeded in perverting God’s gift of sex perhaps more than any other of God’s good gifts. Satan has taken what is good and right (loving sex between a husband and wife) and replaced it with lust, pornography, and other sins. Pornography can be the first step on a slippery slope of sexual addiction and ungodly desires (see Romans 6:19). The addictive nature of pornography is well documented. The three main categories of sin are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). Pornography causes users to lust after the flesh, and it is undeniably a lust of the eyes. Viewing pornography is a sexual sin, but at its root it is a heart problem. Not only is it a gratification of lust, but it also reveals a desire for validation outside of God. Viewing porn distorts one's view of self, offers counterfeit satisfaction, misrepresents the value of the opposite sex, and perverts God’s good gift of sex. The negative impact pornography has on the brain, mental health, view of the opposite sex, emotional health, and the marriage relationship reveals the true nature of pornography. God alone can heal the heart affected by any hurt, trauma, or rejection. God alone can ultimately meet the desire to be fulfilled and validated, and only He can truly satisfy one's longings and desires. Pornography does not qualify as one of the things we are to think about, according to Philippians 4:8. Pornography is addictive, and we are not to be mastered by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12; 2 Peter 2:19). Lusting in the mind, which is the essence of pornography, is offensive to God (Matthew 5:28) and destructive (see Proverbs 6:25–28; Ephesians 4:19). For those involved in pornography, God can and will give the victory to those who seek Him. Are you involved with pornography and desire freedom from it? Here are some steps to victory: 1. Confess your sin to God (1 John 1:9). 2. Ask God to cleanse, renew, and transform your mind (Romans 12:2). 3. Ask God to fill your mind with things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and commendable (Philippians 4:8)—and consume media that can be described that way. 4. Ask God to reveal the void in your heart you are trying to fill with pornography, and ask Him to help you find your satisfaction in Him (Psalm 16:11; 37:4). 5. Learn to possess your body in holiness (1 Thessalonians 4:3–4). 6. Understand the proper meaning of sex and rely on your spouse alone to meet that need (1 Corinthians 7:1–5). 7. Realize that, if you walk in the Spirit, you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). 8. Take practical steps to reduce your exposure to pornographic images. Install pornography blockers on your computer, limit television and video usage, and find another Christian who will pray for you and help keep you accountable. You can find freedom from the bondage of pornography. God’s plan for your life, including His design for your sexuality, is far better than anything sin entices you with. unquote What does the Bible say about pornography? | GotQuestions.org Remember you need to take the first step before any of this has any meaning to you. You need to believe in or accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Once you have done that, then following the steps will make sense. Until then it won't make much sense.
  11. Here are a hundred plus verses again that show you are wrong and persist in your error. quote Genesis 15:6: “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Habakkuk 2:4: “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.” Mark 1:15: “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Mark 16:16: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Luke 8:12: “Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.” Luke 7:50: “And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.” Luke 8:12: “Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.” John 1:12: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” John 3:(14,)15: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.“ John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:18: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:36: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 5:24: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” John 6:35: “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” John 6:40: “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. “ John 6:47: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” John 7:38: “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 8:24: “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” John 11:25: “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:” John 11:26: “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” John 12:46: “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.” John 16:27: “For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.” John 20:31: “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Acts 2:21: “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 5:14: “And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)” Acts 8:12: “But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.” Acts 8:13: “Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.” Acts 8:37 (8:35-38): “Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.” Acts 10:43: “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” Acts 11:17,18: “Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.” Acts 11:21: “And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.” Acts 13:39: “And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:48: “And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.” Acts 15:7-9: “And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.” Acts 16:31: “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Acts 18:8: “And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.” Acts 22:16: “And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.” Acts 26:18: “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:17: “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 3:22a: “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:” Romans 3:25: “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;” Romans 3:26: “To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:28: “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Romans 3:30: “Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.” Romans 4:3: “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.” Romans 4:5: “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Romans 4:9: “Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.” Romans 4:11: “And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:” Romans 4:13: “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.” Romans 4:16,17: “Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” Romans 4:18-22: “Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.” Romans 5:1: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” Romans 5:2: “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 4:20-25: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” Romans 9:30: “What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.” Romans 9:32,33: “Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; as it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” Romans 10:4: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Romans 10:6a: “But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise…” Romans 10:9: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:10: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:11: “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” Romans 10:13: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:14-17: “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 11:20: “Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:” 1 Corinthians 1:21: “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” 1 Corinthians 15:2: “By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:17: “And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.” 2 Corinthians 4:4: “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 6:14: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:15: “And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” Galatians 2:16: “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” Galatians 2:20: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 3:6,7: “Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” Galatians 3:8: “And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.” Galatians 3:11: “But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:14: “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:22: “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.” Galatians 3:24: “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” Galatians 3:26: “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 5:5: “For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.” Ephesians 1:13: “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,” Ephesians 1:19: “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,” Ephesians 2:8,9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.” Philippians 3:9: “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” Colossians 1:4,5: “Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, wherefore ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;” Colossians 2:12: “Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13: “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” 2 Thessalonians 1:10: “When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” 2 Thessalonians 2:12: “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 1 Timothy 1:16: “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.” 1 Timothy 4:10: “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” 2 Timothy 3:15: “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” Hebrews 3:18: “And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?” Hebrews 4:2: “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Hebrews 4:3a: “For we which have believed do enter into rest…” Hebrews 11:7: “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” Hebrews 11:31: “By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.” Hebrews 10:38: “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:39: “But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” Hebrews 11:6: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” James 2:5: “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:23: “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.” 1 Peter 1:5: “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” 1 Peter 1:9: “Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:18-21: “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”1 Peter 2:6: “Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.” 1 Peter 2:7: “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,” 1 John 5:1a: “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…” 1 John 5:4: “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:5: “Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:10: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.” 1 John 5:13: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” unquote 100+ Bible Verses On Salvation By Faith Alone | New Covenant Baptist Church - Spokane, WA
  12. As I said creation.com has many, many articles and videos. I would urge you to give this your utmost attention. It could determine your eternal destiny. Going by the Bible, it is a matter of the highest urgency and concern. " Death is the result of sin in the world, and without the hope of a Savior to forgive us for our sins, we are under the wrath of God. But thanks be to God that He sent His only Son to die for our sins and rise again to give believers eternal life in Jesus Christ (John 3:16). While we still face the physical consequences of living in a fallen world, death, we can set our hope in the promises of God through Jesus Christ, and rest secure knowing heaven awaits those who die in Christ. " 25 Comforting Bible Verses about Death, Dying in Christ | Anchored in Christ (kevinhalloran.net) So while some people think evolution or creation is of little importance, when you think about it, it is of major importance because it shapes how one views Holy Scripture and belief in the gospel of salvation. We are either just a cosmic accident in a universe which happened by chance or some cosmic accident or we were created by an infinitely powerful God who had a purpose in mind. I believe that we were created for a purpose. If one does not believe the Bible and Jesus Christ, he is living a life of hopelessness with nothing to look forward to. The truth in the Bible is the only thing that brings meaning to life and a good hope for the future.
  13. Could that have something to do with why Canada is going Socialist and progressive and massive third world immigration? Canada won't be recognizable as a European founded country or a Judeo-Christian society in the not too distant future. That is what the liberal Papist machine wants. They hate WASPs, (white Aglo Saxon Protestants). They are working to change the demographics so that most voters will be third world immigrants that believe in their brand of liberalism/progressivism/Socialism. If you don't agree with them (liberals), your thinking is wrong; ask Trudeau or liberals.
  14. There are literally thousands of articles and videos on the subject. All you have to do is go to creation.com and start reading or watching videos. Words whether spoken or written down are what all knowledge rests on. That is all there is. If you don't accept what is written, you are in big trouble. It means you don't accept what anyone else says unless it fits your world view. That is your problem.
  15. Tell a judge and jury in court that you don't accept eye witness evidence. See how far that gets you. Eye witnesses are not "subjective belief". The complexity of creation is not subjective either. It is absolute.
  16. The evidence is there in the creation and Scriptures. You choose to ignore it. Everyone is imperfect and all have sinned. That is why we need Jesus Christ the Savior. Without Jesus Christ, you are doomed.
  17. The only thing you can admit is you are blind to the reality of God. In addition to the creation which is strong evidence of God or proof, there are the Holy Scriptures which record eye witnesses having seen the many miracles that God performed including raising the dead. You ignore that at your own peril.
  18. God did not give aboriginals permanent ownership of North America (Turtle Island). In fact, they never even occupied all the land many of the bands now claim as their traditional territory. They may have hunted on parts of it or travelled through the vast wilderness, but they never occupied it and developed it or extracted the resources from it. So the settlers in Canada had a perfect right to move there and live. This has nothing to do with the case of Israel which God gave the land to. That is true. It was a result of a false understanding of the Bible. It was anti-Christian. Hatred and persecution are contrary to the Bible. That was mainly the mainline state church of Rome that was antisemitic. But also in Russia and other places in the world. It is another good reason Israel needed to re-establish the State of Israel in 1948.
  19. You claim to believe in Jesus, yet you have no idea what you are talking about and make repeated false claims. As I said, you need to seek a good Bible counsellor or believer to meet regularly, maybe in a church. If that is true, you better stop posting nonsense on the forum and go find a knowledgeable believer to study the Bible with.
  20. You find yourself watching it and taking it in, not realizing it is a form of brainwashing. They are trying to create a narrative that there is a problem that needs reconciliation and compensation for. Much like the endless payments and deals with FNs.
  21. That is blasphemy. Do you believe in Jesus Christ of the Bible? Why are you worried about what hell will be like or how long it lasts?
  22. I think hell will probably be a place where unsaved sinners will meet up with the worst unrepentant criminals that lived. They will be in the company of these people, people like Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, and others like violent criminals, liars, thieves, serial killers, mass murderers, rapists, etc. who have never repented and been born again. " 43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched." Mark 9:43-48 KJV
  23. I suspect you do not bother reading replies so I won't hold my breath. But here it is for anyone else who might be interested. quote First, the Bible declares that all sin is ultimately against God (Psalm 51:4). The extent of the punishment depends, in part, on the target of the crime. In a human court of law, a physical assault against an individual will usually result in a fine and possibly some time in jail. In contrast, a physical assault against the president or prime minister of a country will likely result in a lifetime in prison. And this is the case despite the fact that the crime was a one-time offense, not a continual, ongoing action. God is infinitely higher and greater than any human being. How much more are our crimes worthy of a great punishment in light of the fact that our sins are against God (Romans 6:23)? Second, the idea that we cease sinning after death is not taught in the Bible. Are those who go to hell suddenly sinless and perfect? No. Those who go into eternity without Christ will be confirmed in their wickedness. The hard-hearted will be eternally hard-hearted. There will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth” in hell (Matthew 25:30), but no repentance. Sinners in hell will be given over to their own nature; they will be sin-infected, evil, immoral, and depraved beings for all of eternity, forever unredeemed and unregenerate. The lake of fire will be a place of eternal rebellion against God—even as that rebellion is judged (Revelation 20:14–15; cf. Revelation 16:9, 11). Unsaved people do not only sin for 70, 80, 90, or 100 years. They sin for eternity. What it comes down to is this—if a person wants to be separated from God for eternity, God will grant that desire. Believers are those who say to God, “Your will be done.” Unbelievers are those to whom God says, “Your will be done.” The will of the unsaved is to reject salvation through Jesus Christ and remain in sin; God will honor that decision, and its consequences, for eternity. unquote How is an eternity in hell a just punishment for only a human lifetime of sin? | GotQuestions.org
  24. The two biggest lies ever told are: 1. The theory of evolution (or Darwinism). It is unproven. 2. There are more than two genders and one can change his/her gender. This also is obviously false. The biology of humans proves it is false. That fact that many people believe both of these lies just proves that humans are easily deceived and will fall for almost anything.
