Philosophical Theological stuff

This pearltree is all about Philosophical, Theological, Religion, and Beliefs many people have. I am a Believer, I believe that there is one God who created the world, and from that gave all of us (as humans) free will.

That said, in order to have free will, this is the way of following God and what He desires for us, as well as the absense of that (also known as SIN) . With that, we all at one point go against God's will, and do what we personally want to do. With that, we go against God and go outside of His will, and His gift of eternal life, and choose death. We messed it up. And death is needed...Yet God still gave us a way, He sent Christ to die for us, Jesus is in God's will, and gave that for us, a perfect sacrifice. With that, we believe in Christ, and follow Him in Faith, we will be saved. So that is what I believe to be truth, I believe it IS truth. This is the simple version of the Gospel and there are many conflicts and other parts regarding life and theology, so this is a pearltree with different worldviews, different peoples' thoughts, feelings, emotions, and I am collecting them. So not everything here is something I believe in, I just found them useful and interesting.

Truth - Proof That God Exists. Sye Ten Bruggencate. Sye Ten Bruggencate,[1] a.k.a., Sye TenB., is an internet personality in his own right and a regular contributor to Eric Hovind's "Creation Today" videos. The videos promote anti-science and biblical literalism and disseminate false information about science with the goal of indoctrinating children and vulnerable adults. Ten Bruggencate subscribes to the Transcendental Argument for the existence of God (TAG) and accordingly to presuppositionalism, a branch of Christian apologetics.

[edit] Beliefs Ten Bruggencate is internet famous for his aggressive indifference towards any reasoned response to his own argument, which consists of a single idea nowhere near as interesting as he insists it is. Taking morality as an example of that which we wish to measure, Ten Bruggencate asserts that we can only know the difference between what is right and what is wrong if we have an absolute standard of morality by which to judge our actions against.

The passion of Jesus Christ stands alone as the most important event creation has ever known. The Bible tells us that long before the world began, God had planned that the crucifixion of Jesus would be the method and payment for sin – the only payment that would reconcile sinners to a holy and loving God. 1 Peter 1:19-20* – “He paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.

God chose Him for this purpose long before the world began, but now in these final days, He was sent to the earth for all to see. And He did this for you.” Down through history, God provided us a roadmap. Mathematically speaking, the odds of anyone fulfilling this amount of prophecy are staggering. 1 person fulfilling 8 prophecies: 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 1 person fulfilling 48 prophecies: 1 chance in 10 to the 157th power 1 person fulfilling 300+ prophecies: Only Jesus!

It is the magnificent detail of these prophecies that mark the Bible as the inspired Word of God. They’re Counting on Your Bible Knowledge—Are You Ready? | LogosTalk. Story behind the song: It is well with my soul. Horatio G. Spafford was a successful lawyer and businessman in Chicago with a lovely family — a wife, Anna, and five children.

However, they were not strangers to tears and tragedy. Their young son died with pneumonia in 1871, and in that same year, much of their business was lost in the great Chicago fire. Yet, God in His mercy and kindness allowed the business to flourish once more. On Nov. 21, 1873, the French ocean liner, Ville du Havre was crossing the Atlantic from the U.S. to Europe with 313 passengers on board. Among the passengers were Mrs. Spafford and their four daughters. About four days into the crossing of the Atlantic, the Ville du Harve collided with a powerful, iron-hulled Scottish ship, the Loch Earn. A sailor, rowing a small boat over the spot where the ship went down, spotted a woman floating on a piece of the wreckage.

Another of the ship’s survivors, Pastor Weiss, later recalled Anna saying, “God gave me four daughters. Mr. When peace like a river attendeth my way, Professor grant horners bible reading system.

What white Christians need to know about the Black Lives Matter movement. Tell the Rev. Osagyefo Sekou what you think about young black people rioting in Ferguson, and he'll tell you what you think about Jesus.

Jesus, he told a packed auditorium at Warner Pacific College Monday night, was born to an unwed teenager in an unimportant part of an empire. He preached a vision for a kingdom where the poor and humble were empowered. He was killed by a system that silenced its dissenters. The pastor has spent much of the last year in the streets of Ferguson and Baltimore, where young, black protestors are articulating a vision of a kingdom where they are empowered. On Monday, Sekou joined Portland faith and activist leaders for a frank conversation about the role of Christians in the Black Lives Matter movement, a phrase they used to name the broader racial justice movement stirring nationwide.

We've boiled the talk down to five major takeaways for white Christians. The talk included lessons for other groups as well, but we're going to keep it simple. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Psalm 127.

Later, Israel divided into two kingdoms. The northern kingdom, called Israel, established its capital first at Shechem, a revered site in Jewish history, and later at the hilltop city of Samaria. Meanwhile, the southern kingdom of Judah fell to Babylon in 600 B.C. Its people, too, were carried off into captivity. But 70 years later, a remnant of 43,000 was permitted to return and rebuild Jerusalem. The people who now inhabited the former northern kingdom—the Samaritans—vigorously opposed the repatriation and tried to undermine the attempt to reestablish the nation.

For their part, the full-blooded, monotheistic Jews detested the mixed marriages and worship of their northern cousins. There are countless modern parallels to the Jewish-Samaritan enmity—indeed, wherever peoples are divided by racial and ethnic barriers. Jews had no dealings with the Samaritans. Is the Rapture Biblical? With the resurgence of Left Behind I thought I’d highlight a few interesting things about the common depiction of rapture theology. When studying I realized the real question should be, where is our hope? Or what’s our final hope?
