How does goods works cause one to lose one's soul?

They don't. But thinking you are good enough to earn God's favor while ignoring what he requires just might.

Re: Bible drop proselytizing


I would wager that no one has ever converted to Christ in order not to be killed. Some may begin to practice a state religion loosely based on the historic Jesus but I do not think a person can be converted to Christ to avoid bodily

Or maybe from the Indian masters he spent time with during his three 'lost'years.

Re: Another Al-Shabab massacre in Kenya

Martyrdom...isn't that another word for killing or be killed and this writer is proposing this just over the definition of marriage.

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

Wonder which God he meant? Probably the one he quoted all the time.

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

I don't really care to 'understand' the God of the OT. I do understand that the greatest commandment is the one given us by Jesus, "Love one another". That is the one I choose to follow.

Where do you think Jesus got it from? [more]

Re: The world's most persecuted minority

This is an important message. It is sad and frustrating that this stuff goes on, bad enough that it happens.

Even worse is the world's indifference.

The unfortunate part is that it then appears to be that he has faith and I don't

I'm sure you have faith in things you don't fully understand. Why do things fall down?

Why did baby you and baby me have a debt when we were born?

We didn't. Debt is just an analogy for our position with God, and I don't think children who don't know right from wrong are held accountable. I think you are reacting to a [more]

His point about "emerging belief" is interesting. I suppose the OT could be completely true, yet lack the fullest revelation. The writers were inspired and wrote truly, but the truth of the afterlife wasn't revealed to them yet. Jesus is [more]

Children were never sent to hell in the OT. There is no concept of hell articulated in the OT, as far as I can remember. The dead go to Sheol, which seems like a metaphor for oblivion. Maybe in Daniel there is something about an [more]
