    The Clock Ticks (Ahmed Mohamed's clock bomb)

    Unfortunately, he is Muslim and he has to accept that suspicions are heightened with them. The people who reported the incident were totally correct in alerting their seniors and the police. Or do we just completely ignore the fact that Muslims are the most violent religious group in the world?

    The reliable GT

    I had a lovely (neg) rep from GT about this. Keep'em coming GT, I'm not offended as my shoulders are broad and my God is great. Perhaps one day you will wake up and realise how evil you are and take appropriate steps to address that. God bless.

    Are you Going to Heaven?

    Another poor soul who wants to lay down the law all over again and nullify what Jesus achieved for us on the cross. And on top of that who wants to waste our time with a thousand words when 5 would have done, thinking that he is doing us a favour by giving us such a generous dollop of his wisdom.

    Theology Club: The Big Picture

    Someone recently described me as somewhat left of middle towards the process theology end of the spectrum (if there is such a thing). I wrote this to set the record straight. Let me say first of all that I completely disavow the process theology of AN Whitehead – bi-polar godism as it is...

    One on One: Desert Reign and Lon - Openness vs. Reformed hermeneutics

    In the 'Death of God' thread Lon proposed a hermeneutic for interpreting the Bible as follows: I have challenged Lon to justify this hermeneutic and he has accepted. We have agreed that the debate will follow along the following lines: 1. Lon will post first, stating his hermeneutical...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    I'm surprised that this discussion has gone on now into its 100th page. It doesn't seem to have advanced at all. I do not believe that the UB was delivered by angels speaking for God or Christ. But can I please ask do you, Caino or Paulie, regardless of what else is in the book, believe that...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    I've never claimed that the Bible was the Word of God. And I agree with you that many Christian leaders do so as a means of administering their authority. I don't believe that the Bible is the Word of God and neither do I believe the protestant doctrine of sola scriptura. But for all that, the...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    I don't object to you having a different view to what the Bible says. (And I have many sympathies with Paulie's concepts) I know it is difficult for many to swallow. Jesus' teachings in his own day were difficult for people and many stopped following him at various points because of this. But if...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    According to Paul all the writings are inspired by God and profitable for teaching and training in righeousness. This does sound very much like what I said before, that the difficult teachings of the Bible have been watered down by the UB so as not to give anyone any offence. This obviously is...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    Caino, Paulie, I have read parts of the UB. Enough to form the opinion I have of it. As I suggested before, it is well written and doesn't really offend too many people. It has structure and is self-consistent. Those are good positive points. But I do not get inspired from it because I feel it...

    The Late Great Urantia Revelation

    The UB seems to be an amalgam of ideas mainly from Christianity (and does incorporate specific trinitarian concepts so I think you are wrong about that), other religions and science (as science stood in the 1930s). My guess is that because it contains not all that much that is fundamentally new...
