  • If faith is belief without evidence, then why do people dispute this when it comes to the presence of God? Ex: Why do they try to prove?

    To have faith in God is, in essence to believe that He exists, without any evidence that He exists. So with this being the case, I am confused as to why some people refuse to just accept it for what it is, as opposed to trying to go a step further and find evidence that God does exist.

    To have faith in God is, in essence to believe that He exists, without any evidence that He exists. So with this being the case, I am confused as to why some people refuse to just accept it for what it is, as opposed to trying to go a step further and find evidence that God does exist. This is almost like a contradiction of the very idea of what God is, as if saying that a person of faith does not actually believe that He exists or has doubt, since they are trying to prove that he exists. It would be like me saying that I have faith that Santa Claus is real, but instead of just taking comfort in the fact that I believe it, I was concerned about the fact that other people didn't believe it, which suggests a measure of uncertainty on my part that he actually does exist. Furthermore, none of this changes what it is to have faith in God, Santa Claus, etc. But rather it does nothing but show that some people are lacking the faith that they claim to have in these people. There is nothing wrong with believing in God, without having any evidence that he exists, and if someone thinks that there is a problem with it then chances are that they are not truly a person of faith or religion, as opposed to one who is agnostic or something similar to it. Or either they misunderstand what it is to have faith, or they are not comfortable with it.

  • Users, READ THIS before asking us to pray for your loved ones! .......?

    Occasionally, the Christians on R&S are asked to pray for someone's ailing family member. We don't mind doing so(in the spirit of Christ), but you must keep something in mind: If your loved one is NOT a Christian, prayer cannot help him. God listens to all prayers, but He does not answer the prayers of those who refuse to accept his existence and sovereignty. So, if we pray for him, it will do nothing to help your relative and you'll be wasting your relative's time as well as our time and God's time also. In the case that your relative does not accept God, you are asked to keep this section clutter-free and instead seek earthly "alternatives" here: https://answers.yahoo.com/dir/index?sid=... By following these rules, we can ensure that R&S is used appropriately and that everyone is satisfied with their "solution". Thank you.

  • Since Jesus was without sin, why didn't he cast the first stone?

    Best answer: "God's law" was written by men. Jesus was defiant to men and their "laws". Stoning people has nothing to do with God.

  • To end the sexual abuses in catholic church should not priests be allowed to marry?

    Knowing human nature I imagine there would be less abuse if they had a healthy outlet for sexual desires instead of allowing it to become pent up . Also in modern day world were marriage is declining it would serve as promoting marriage. So it would morally be a good move to promote marriage and reduce sexual abuses.

  • Atheists, what is **THE** True definition of atheism?

    Best answer: From the Greek, "theo" is god. A theist is therefore one who believes in god. The opposite of that in Greek requires the addition of the letter "a" in front of the word. Therefore an atheist is a person that believes in no god or gods.

    Best answer: When the Holy Spirit has brought you to that stage of seeing the awfulness of your sin, which separates you from the Holy God, then you will desire to have God cleanse you from all your sin, to give you a clean conscience. You will simultaneously realize that only what Jesus did on the cross can enable that free pardon to be granted to you.

    That's because no human can do anything to merit God's approval and forgiveness. Only God, in Christ, could do for us sinners what we could never do to be forgiven. We have no righteousness in and of ourselves, you see (Isaiah 64:6). But the Holy Spirit can open our eyes to seeing the righteousness of God displayed at Golgotha, when He dealt with all sin that dark day.

    Because Jesus was without sin, yet gave Himself over to death on a cross, for sinners, God poured all his wrath and punishment on sin upon Christ, who became sin for us. All sin having been punished, God will not punish twice! Now, when a sinner comes 'under' the shed blood of Christ by faith, that righteous blood of Christ 'cleanses' sinners. It is only when you begin to see just who it was dying for your sins on the cross that you will bend your knee in Jesus' name and confess Him alone to be your Savior and your Lord. Then you will have repented and trusted in Christ (and continue in that changed frame of mind thereon.)

    Read Romans 10:3-17, and keep reading it again and again until it sinks in. Then do what it says.
