  1. This questioning of God can continue.. and always will. Yet - it will get you no where. Those who sincerely want to know God can always find him, and find the answers to their questions. Then they can make a decision if they want to believe or not. But for those who only question, who never want to have answers to their questions, will never know him. The sincere can PM me. The insincere can continue to ask their questions here.. but as I thought was blatantly obvious from this thread already, I have no intention on answering them here.
  2. Do you know that God has never answered the prayer of an amputee? Do you know this? God can answer prayers in many ways. I cannot of course answer for God - but I would only say that through miracles, God really can do anything. Luke 22:50-51 Effectively, this man had his ear 'amputated', and Jesus healed him. You can question miracles - and of course, I don't expect you to believe them. But I will say this.. when you experience one - you won't question any more. You will know. Try explaining it to the non-believers however and you will find they won't believe you!! - but to you, you will always know it was a miracle.
  3. I think you'll find I have not questioned Freggyragh's knowledge of God. I'd like you to quote me if I did, as I am genuinely not aware of doing so.
  4. Can you also guess that I am not trying to convert anyone here? I teach those who are sincere. I won't waste any time on those who are not.
  5. Perhaps one day... you will find the answer to that question yourself. Look me up in the next life...
  6. No I wouldn't. What a bizarre post. You've given examples of "miracles" which have other logical explanations. It's as simple as that, Danny boy. Well of course - Miracles are logical.
  7. If God himself stood in front of you and did every miracle you could ask... you would deny he existed then too.
  8. But that's all about beliefs and faith - what's that got to do with reality? Of course it's about beliefs and faith.... it's about a religion. In any case if you read the thread, you will find that I was answering a question...
  9. The Articles of Faith All our teachings would of course fill more than a page of A4.... but the above short statements give a concise (and brief) overview.
  10. Chinahand, remembering of course that the term 'Christianity' encompasses a huge number of ideologies... often in direct contrast to another. For one, not all Christians believe Jesus is 'his own Father'. Not all Christians believe in the Trinity.
  11. A man having terminal cancer... and the doctors saying he will die. During a routine scan/treatment, they realise that to their amazement, the cancer has completely gone. That would be a miracle. On a smaller level... a man prays for something specific, and something wonderful. Sometime later, that prayer is answered specifically. That would also be a miracle. There are a great variety of miracles, and many thousands of people can testify of having witnessed a miracle in their life. But to you, the non-believer... i would be wasting my time if i was to go into any specifics with you - and you know it.
  12. Okay... ready for the stupid question? Who are the "right owners" and the "performing rights people"? We had permission on this film from the makers... would that be sufficient?
  13. ah.. that's just the kind of advice I need. Thanks for that. So I need to look into performing rights.. not copyright laws?
  14. Hey Just looking for a little advice, or some pointers in the right direction. If you were to show a film outisde of your home to friends ie. at a reception, party etc. I assume there would be a breach of the copyright of that film (although within the 'home', it is acceptable). I would expect that showing something like 'Independence Day' etc in a public viewing (albeit there being no charges to the public) would be caught by copyright fairly blatantly. I was wondering however about low-key films.. the kind of film that doesn't reach cinema etc. and not produced by the likes of Warner Bros etc. Also, in that I have permission from the filmmakers to show the film... would i be in breach of copyright law if I were to show it at a screening (free) outside of the home? I was looking through the Copyright Act 1991, but I didn't think that cleared it up.. and was wondering if there was specific legislation that dealt with this issue? cheers
  15. wow... that's the second time in this thread that you have asked me a question.. and then immediately assumed to know my answer. This scripture sums it up quite nicely: "Who shall say that it was not a miracle that by his word the heaven and the earth should be; and by the power of his word man was created of the dust of the earth; and by the power of his word have miracles been wrought? And who shall say that Jesus Christ did not do many mighty miracles? And there were many mighty miracles wrought by the hands of the apostles. And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he change not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles." and again: "And that he manifesteth himself unto all those who believe in him, … working mighty miracles, signs, and wonders, among the children of men according to their faith."
  16. who said they were religious nuts. Amadeus did. In regards to the issue of atheism and science, my point is, science is an effort to explain the logical reasons behind matter, reactions, actions etc. Part of that logic may be a God. There are many scientists who are in fact religious. I don't think we can discredit their knowledge and abilities etc on the basis that they believe in God. They are just as much a 'scientist' as a non-believer.
  17. Religious nuts?... you mean 'people whose opinion I disagree with'. Effectively, that's all it is. Science does not equal atheism. The notion that to be a scientist you must ignore Gods existence is wrong. However, quoting religious text in exams is rather pointless!
  18. Togo have withdrawn amid calls the tournament should be cancelled. In my opinion, the tournament should go on. I am very disappointed to hear Premier League club managers calling for their players to come home. This tournament is actually nothing to do with them. I very much doubt they would be calling back the England team if anything happens in the world cup (which they all think England have a chance of winning).
  19. same thing isn't it? hahaha! there's that old cracker! Moron... Mormon... hilarious.
  20. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/8449319.stm wow! what a terrible start to the African Nations Cup in Angola! They say a couple of players have been injured, and Togo is considering pulling out of the tournament. It officially kicks off on Sunday - but we'll have to see what the knock on effect of this attack is. Anyway - onto the football. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/piersedwards/20...ad_the_cha.html The BBC will be covering the final and semi-finals - but no other games. I'll be onto the net then to hopefully watch some live streams! I am a big fan of the African Nations Cup - some [suprisingly] quality football and spectacular goals. I am naturally backing Nigeria (in this and the World Cup!!), but whether or not the politics and general bad attitude of some within the team/management can be overcome, will seriously hamper their play. Other favourites are of course Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Egypt (though player injuries have knocked them back a little!), Ghana and Togo (if they remain in the tournament!) Anyone else going to follow this?
