  • I don't think it is right to throw away one teaching and embrace another based on one's convenience. I think you should read the bible more and find out for yourself that a tooth for a tooth was an old testament way but Jesus' way is different, and …
  • If Jesus Christ is a lie, then the whole bible is a lie. Jesus was with God when God created the earth and he is God himself. He is the Prince, The Word, Emmanuel, the Messiah.  I can't see why you are pointing out to this particular verse in Galati…
  • Yahweh and Allah are substantially different because Yahweh is a real God who created man while Allah is a creation of human mind.  Islam was founded by their prophet Mohammed from the lineage of Ishmael, Abraham's son by Hagar. This is what God has…
  • I'll never get tired of saying God and talking about him and praising him because that's what God wants me to do. I want God to be a part of my life and I am thankful for everything that comes my way - be it a blessing or a challenge. That is not hy…
  • It's quite clear as a Christian that based on the bible,you cannot be saved unless you first accept Jesus as your saviour because he is the way, the truth, and the life. Hence, non-Christians could not possibly be accepted into an eternal life with …
  • It is a lot easier to make a decision on euthanasia when it involves a suffering pet. When it comes to a human life, however, I don't think that it is morally right to administer a drug that will end a person's life. That would be assisted suicide, …
  • Here is a reference to the divinity of Jesus in the book of John:John1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God That Jesus is also God makes him different from the rest o…
  • It is quite normal for other religions to criticize or challenge the Catholic Church because if they don't, then it means that the Catholic Church is the real church of God and the other religions will have no basis for existence. It is not surprisi…
  • What I know about Chinese Traditional Medicine is that it makes use of natural ingredients or plants to achieve healing. This is not so much different from natural healing with herbs that are being used in my country. I wouldn't call it an occult ri…
  • As they are cited in the bible, I do believe in angels. From the bible, we learned that they are God's messengers and that they worship God day and night in heaven. They are created higher than human beings but we will be higher than them if we are …
  • Life is all about maximizing our potentials (the parable of talents) in all aspects of our lives. That means actively developing ourselves to think and act in accordance with God's will and using our blessings to bless other people. To whom much is …
  • Pope Francis reminds me so much of Pope John Paul II. The death of JP2 was truly a loss. He had a charismatic personality and reached out to everyone. He has such tender eyes and mild manner that communicate sincerity, kindness, and love. He worked …
  • Thank you for posting this thread, @janemariesayed. My personal prayers have been mostly spontaneous the past several years because our amazing God has been so good to me and my family. I almost forgot about this miraculous prayer to the Holy spirit…
  • I think that we all should ask ourselves that question. Haven't we learned from Jesus that whatever we do to our less fortunate brothers, we are doing it to/for him? Are we doing our share? Why are we expecting the church at all to solve a country's…
  • I was baptized and raised as a Catholic and I know my faith well enough when I began to explore other related religions. I've never entertained Buddhism, Hinduism, or other Eastern religion because for starters, we've learned about them in school an…
  • I read the bible almost everyday, skipping at most one day a week, on the sabbath day. I've read and re-read the gospels which renews my faith and remind me of God's love through the sacrifice of Jesus. I also read the Old Testament like it is a his…
  • Being in hell is an eternal punishment for separation from God, not a correction. God has given us free will and it's up to us to make a decision on which way we want to go. Are we for God or are we of this world? if we choose to be for God, then we…
  • Some Christian faiths are actually questioning why Catholics are making the sign of the cross whenever they pass by a church building. They make it an excuse to criticize Catholicism by saying that Catholics have to make the sign of the cross in fro…
  • The attire and attitude are all just superficial side of our faith and there is nothing wrong with dispensing with old traditions if these are no longer practical. Everything that we need to know about salvation and our faith is written in the bible…
  • I believe that women are equal to men, if stronger (can men survive pregnancy and labor?) but when it comes to priesthood, I'm really traditional. I'd like my priest to be male and celibate and one who has undergone all education and training requir…
  • Islamic Jihadists as you call them have never indicated that they want a dialogue. They're not kids or starry-eyed teens who will fall for a charismatic pope. Pope Francis will surely be killed by these people and they will be gloating about it. As …
  • That is a flawed logic, in my opinion. How can you deduce that the Buddhists' karmic  belief is true when something bad happens to good people? In the first place, no one is good, except God, so how can you say that a person has been good and not de…
  • I don't think that Christians will be tame when the Muslims declare Jihad on them. It's not like we're going to allow our families to be butchered. Besides that, why would Muslims declare a jihad on Christians? Muslims, the real ones, are also peace…
  • I actually have both. I read my big bible at home while I use the bible app when I'm on the go. The big difference is the big bible has annotations and some explanations which facilitate more in-depth learning. I don't bring the bible with me becaus…
  • Priesthood is a special vocation, a calling from God that you can neither deny or assume. There is nothing in the bible that says you will go straight to paradise if your son becomes a priest because salvation is an individual thing. Not so many tee…
  • That really just shows what kind of person she is and what kind of upbringing she had. We can't really control how people behave. She's supposed to be a professional who's covering an event but she acted beneath her profession. Her network should do…
  • To answer your question, you might be interested to read this verses from your bible: Isaiah Chapter 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty …
  • The Catholic Church has always been a conciliatory religion. Pope Francis in no way condones homosexuality when he issued the Amoris Laetitia. He is merely echoing what Jesus Christ said is the second most important of the two major commandments: to…
  • I am not in favor of death penalty because it doesn't accomplish anything. Statistics will tell us that the imposition of the death penalty does not prevent people from committing heinous crimes. It will not undo the damage or give back the life tha…
  • Jesus said that in the afterlife, should we be judged worthy of eternal life, we will be like angels in heaven. We will not be accounted for as wife/husband of someone, and following the analogy, we will probably not be accounted for as son, daughte…
