• Say I covet my neighbor's wife, but later I refuse to bake a cake for a gay. Does this absolve my sin and allow me to enter heaven?

    Best answer: Christians don't think either of those things are sins.

    So, there's no need for one to absolve the other.

    Edit: By the way, in case you haven't noticed, I give OUT as many downvotes as I receive. There's 5 so far. So, keep them coming Christards :-)

  • How much does evolution affect humans?

    How much does evolution affect humans?

    The race deniers have lost a lot of battles. When anthropologists discovered africans and non-africans have been separated for 70,000 years it was a pretty big blow. Before that they said skin color changed over the course of around 10,000 years. Only it was 70,000. That would've been bad in and of itself, but... show more
    The race deniers have lost a lot of battles. When anthropologists discovered africans and non-africans have been separated for 70,000 years it was a pretty big blow. Before that they said skin color changed over the course of around 10,000 years. Only it was 70,000. That would've been bad in and of itself, but it became worse around 2007 when geneticists were able to sequence the human genome. And the first thing they found were different homologous clusters of DNA among different races. Now ancestry tests can tell you your exact race down to .01 of a percent. This one really hurt, because before there was "no biological basis in race, because I don't know what categories are, or the difference between coding and non-coding sequences are" - said the race deniers. But once we can accept that yes, evolution works in humans. Divergent evolution happened between polar bears and grizzly bears 70,000 years ago, which is almost the exact same duration non-africans & Africans have been geographically apart, until like the past 500 years or so. Now we're learning other languages and becoming more globalized, but before then they were more or less entirely separated groups. & if sociology is any guide, then Africans are not the most intelligent. Perhaps it's because of them evolving in a tropic biome for so long, which makes athleticism a much more important trait for natural pressures. In temperate biomes, alleles and genes linked to intelligence become more concentrated in that pop.

  • Do you agree that no loving God could send somebody to Hell for eternity?

    Christianity teaches that if you are not saved or Christian then you will go to Hell. It also states that its God is a loving God. But I don't think the 2 are compatible. If God truly loves us he would not allow somebody to receive Hell for being a non-Christian.

  • My friend believes that all you have to do to go to Heaven is just believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is that correct?

    Best answer: Jesus said that those who will go to heaven will rule with him as kings and priests. Luke 22:28-30, Revelation 5:9-10 He also said that the meek will inherit the earth Matthew 5:5.

    Best answer: Jesus said that those who will go to heaven will rule with him as kings and priests. Luke 22:28-30, Revelation 5:9-10

    He also said that the meek will inherit the earth Matthew 5:5. Psalms 37:11,29 refers to that promise, that these meek, righteous ones will dwell on the earth forever in peace.

    But I am thinking that you are referring to salvation to everlasting life.

    Many people tend to read just one or two scriptures and define Christianity by just these verses. It is great to read the scriptures, but reading all of what he said and what his inspired disciples and apostles wrote will give us a balanced rounded view of what being a Christian means.

    The sermon on the mount (found in Matthew chapters 5 through 7) is a good start. It is about what we could do to be blessed or be happy now, what to pray about, how to be a blessing to others, and what must come first in our life. This means changing our lives in repentance and reflecting our faith in Jesus by following his example. In this sermon, Jesus also said this:

    Matthew 7:21-23
    “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’

    Having faith in Jesus as the only means of salvation is absolutely necessary for a person to be a Christian. But we have to show it in our life. Finding out what Jesus wants us to do to show that faith is also very important, because obeying him demonstrates that he really is our Lord.

    The link below can provide more insight on this, plus a lot of scriptures from God's word.

    Among many other things, it answers the question "Is belief in Jesus all that we need to be saved?"

  • Atheists are now saying that Jonah was captured by a submarine and not swallowed by a big fish?

    Best answer: Jonah Vark was not killed by a submarine. She was burned at the stake, after leading the French to victory. What probably got you confused about fish and submarines, is that the French Prince was called the Dolphin.
