Dancing with the Stars is where it's at! Lot's of ........ action. rofl

Nah, a major league baseball game played in the infield of an active NASCAR race would be the ultimate waste of time, but somewhat efficient waste of time.

No, because baseball sometimes has fights, and NASCAR sometimes has crashes.

Theology Forum / Re: Jude 1:21 . . . your thoughts
« Last post by fish153 on Yesterday at 14:46:45 »
SM---

It's amazing to see you do the same thing over and over again. The most important thing in these verses----(and I say "verses" because verse 20 and 21 shoud be quoted
together) are the words "BUT YE, BELOVED".

"BUT YE, BELOVED, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
". (Jude 20, 21)

He is drawing a contrast between true believers and the false teachers and false followers.  It is SO IMPORTANT to see this.

Without getting into a theological discussion let me ask the question:  Are they beloved because they keep themselves----or are they beloved so they
can keep themselves?  One needs to be "beloved" first before any other actions can take place. Just something to think about.

Golf is even worse than watching NASCAR or MLB.  Might as well watch grass grow.

I used to despise watching golf on TV, UNTIL I started playing a little. To see the skill involved with those guys is amazing.

I'm a Jordan Spieth fan. He is a great golfer.............most days, but he can fall totally apart on the golf course as I do all the time.

You are correct. I need to re-think what I said. Ouch, boy what a terrible example of godliness for our youth was TW.

Tiger Woods was a great ambassador for golf.  Just sayin'.

I don't watch pro sports.

Why not? We all are subject as employees to behaving in employment a certain way. We all have our personal opinions on things and should keep them to ourselves in the exercise of our employment. Especially professional athletes blessed beyond their belief by a country that allows such opportunity, even though we are far from perfect. If players want to poop on the flag on their own time, I would regret it, but it is their right. If a team owner as an employer wants to maintain some decorum, I say it's HIS right, or the team uniform should be taken away along with the accompanying pay.

It would probably not go well for me as an oil company employee to participate in public demonstration against fracking.  I wouldn't anyway since I am richly blessed as is the country in that endeavor.

Prayer Requests Online and Praise Reports / Re: I'm suffering from depression
« Last post by RB on Yesterday at 14:31:30 »
I agree. Davids way is best. 
Dear friend can I ask you one question, pray tell me is Psalm 45:5 a CHOICE? A choice that every child of God is faced with from time to time, some more, some less but all have a measure of self-pity like Elijah when Jezebel sought to kill him.  Elijah had a CHOICE...He could have either wallow in his self-pity, or, he could have sought God who is the HEALTH of our countenance. He found his juniper tree and then asked God to take his life, he said it's ENOUGH! You know the story. He thought that he was left all alone, but we know the answer of God unto him, do we not.

Bottom line...Psalm 45:5 is a choice we have.

Now that being said, I'm a little depressed knowing that my dear sister mommydi has struggled with this, but not really surprising since MOST thinking people do! Those who have their heads in the sand do not. MUCH love to my dear sister mommydi  ::prayinghard::

To Barbarian and others who concludes, on the basis of scientific findings, that God created by evolution, including Adam.

Remember He only used nature to make our bodies.  Our souls are given immediately by Him to each of us.

Quote
The Christian believe that God intended and purposely created man from the beginning of creation.


Genesis notes what was there in the beginning and man was not.
 
Quote
Now, the Christian scientist explains that man was created by God by evolution from a simple living organism.

No.   From other primates.

Quote
If that were the case, then all stages of the evolution of man are nothing but necessary evolutionary stages of the intended and planned creation of man by God and so, these stages may well be treated as creation or creatures that God did not really intend as an end, which is the human, in this case.

Given that God seems to be rather elegant in His creation, I'm thinking that all creatures have a purpose in the larger scheme of things.

Quote
And millions of years passed and so evolved the homo genus, the human being, man. The scientists say, that happened several million years ago. But when was Adam created according to God, in  scriptures?

He didn't provide a timeline.   I'm thinking that probably means it wasn't important to what He wanted to tell us therein.

Quote
The Christian, based on scriptures, counts it to only some 6,000+ years ago

Some modern Christians do.   But not most of them.

Quote
or as some calculates to be up to 12,000 years ago, but nowhere by the hundred thousands of years ago.

About 150 years ago, the great Baptist evangelist Charles Spurgeon, thought that it was millions of years old.    That is what Bryan said for the Creationist side in the Scopes trial.   That was before the Adventists invented YE creationism.

Quote
So, evolution did not end but continue on for still millions of years. Now, of the human (homo) genus, there are said to be many species that evolved. And Adam could not belong to all species. Now, which among these species does Adam belong, him who was the intended creation of God?

Would it offend you if the first humans were H. erectus instead of H. sapiens?    How about Neandertals?   You think they were human?   Denesovans?    Why does it mean anything at all to you?


Quote
Let's see. Since God said in scriptures that we have come from the kind of Adam,


Most creationists says "kind"is genus or family.  So that would include every species of homo.
Quote
Adam must be of the same species

Genus or family.   If you want to use the creationist idea of "kind."

 
Quote
1. Has the Homo Sapien stopped evolving since it is this species that God have intended to create in Adam?

Nope.  We've seen quite a number of useful mutations become established in the population.

Quote
If man continue to evolve as scientist say:

2. What does that make of the omnipotent and sovereign God?

Rather amazing in His power and creativity.

Quote
3. What does that make of the present evolved modern man to be?

Beloved of God, Who wants all of us to share Heaven with Him.

Quote
4. Will man evolve to be some still different sub species?

Could happen, although present travel and migration probably makes that unlikely.

Quote
5. When will the evolution of man end?

When there are no more humans in this world. 

Quote
6. How do you interpret how God created Eve?

Created like the other animals, but then God directly gave her an immortal soul.

Quote
7. How do you interpret the fall of Adam?

Act of disobedience.

Quote
8. How do yo interpret Adam

The first person to have an immortal soul.

Quote
and the garden of Eden?

Where Adam and Eve lived in complete grace with God.
