I would like to nominate Wanderwolf I disagree with him a lot but I believe he would be evenhanded. Actually I think this would be a good criteria - have the more liberal folks nominate a conservative they respect and have the more conservative folks nominate a liberal they respect. This would be li...

There's no such thing as an evangelical athiest. First, because the term "evangelical" refers to a belief in god, so even if Atheism was a religion, it cannot be evangelical, because it dosn't involve a god. Second, because atheism is not a belief, it is a lack of belief. Ergo, not a religion. Obvi...

Wired magazine had a very good article on the new atheism called The Church of the Non-Believers. It includes a section on Dawkins.

An excellent read.

I heard about this just a couple weeks ago, even though it purportedly got a lot of press at the time. If the draft ever passes (which I optimistically doubt), I may never vote for a majority party candidate at the national level again. The Draft is a third-rail topic in politics, as no doubt the D...

If a Christian is convinced that he can't lose his salvation, I would hope that he is actively maintaining a sanctified life, in every area. I would agree, and hopefully the same for those who believe they can lose their salvation :wink: But we will sin - the perfect life is impossible until glorif...

<snip> There is a doctrine going around that more or less says "Once saved, always saved." Sorry, Narnian, but that is VERY licencious and not once does it implore the Christian to live a holy life. <snip> Another minister of God preferred, "Once in Heaven, always in Heaven." You bring up some very...

Jam, what you have descibed to me looks like a gospel of works, not grace. Everything depends on what you do and how you act. You never know what sin will push you over the edge. And if the interpretation of the passages you cited are true, then once you fall away you can never come back. You seem t...

No, what I'm saying is that Salvation, being a gift, can be rejected later on and one can deny being Yeshua before men, if that weren't possible, Yeshua wouldn't have warned us about it. Also: Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall ...

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come , if they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to...

It is a sad fact, but yes, a saved person CAN lose his salvation. Now from there we could move on to whether that person was sincere in his original prayer or not or whether he was originally part of us or not, but what is important here is that one stands firm against temptation, and then against ...

I find it interesting to see the reactions to the "Hard Onions" strips.

Where some find fear and others preaching, I see hope.

If there's a God who helps people, what about all the people that didn't get out of accidents so well? Welcome to a fallen world. God helps. God hinders. Sometimes He just gets a good laugh or cry. It all depends on how you react to it. Someone I used to know had that struggle as well. She ended up...

Apparently they may have changed the scoring method since you were in, Calbeck. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/joiningthemilitary/a/asvabscorechg.htm My son's AFQT score was 95 which means he is in the 95th percentile of people taking the test (hence the 99 top score).

They said the test he took had 99 as the highest (according to the recruiter). Maybe they have different vesions? Okay, then you're talking one of the sub-tests that the ASVAB is made up of. I scored 128 on the ASVAB overall (then made my recruiter cry when I insisted on signing up for armor instea...
