-Christianity Teaches Love
Finding Faith Through ScienceRocket scientist Jim Bradford says that science has always affirmed his faith.Finding Faith Through Science by Allendra3
Jim sees science as the study of what God made. And he defines science in this way: Science is an endeavor to explore and understand. Scientism is a philosophy that starts by saying that nothing supernatural exists. Jim points out that this viewpoint is unable to answer the question of where the matter and energy came from that supposedly started the Big Bang, according to the theory.
With a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, among Jim’s many accomplishments is working with Boeing on space shuttles. Up until college he was too shy to do any sort of Christian leadership. But he overcame this during college by inadvertently leading a Christian student group each week. Now, along with his rocket science career he also talks to people about the relationship between science and religion.
According to Jim, this viewpoint that we were not Created is one of despair. It’s saying that you are an
7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Wicca/Paganism7 Reasons Why I Choose Christianity over Wiccan/Paganism7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Wicca/Paganism by Allendra3
-One of the teachings of Wicca is reincarnation. But there is no evidence in support of reincarnation. There is no way to prove it exists.
-Christianity teaches we have one life, and that has much evidence for it.
-How do you know the gods and goddesses of Wicca exist? Can you prove it?
-The Christian God has evidence to prove Him (see artist description).
---Why would I leave Christianity which teaches something proven, for Wiccan which teaches something unproven?
-In Wicca, Satan does not exist. But then how can it explain the origin of demons? The practices of Satanists? Or the testimonies of those who have been to Hell and back? (see artist description)
-Christianity affirms the existence of Satan and is very specific about his nature.
---Why would I join Wicca when it contradicts my own experiences about Satan?
3. More Denial
-Wicca denies the existence of Heaven of Hell
7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Buddhism7 Reasons Why I Choose Christianity Over Buddhism7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Buddhism by Allendra3
1. Unique and Set Apart
-Buddhism's beliefs are very close to those of Hinduism. How then can you determine one religion from the other?
-As opposed to Christianity, which has several factors that no other religion has, including a Savior, forgiveness, a personal God, and Salvation through faith.
-Another unique aspect of Christianity is that Jesus was resurrected.
-With so many wise men recorded throughout history, how is Buddha set apart?
---Why would I, a Christian, leave a unique religion with a resurrected Savior, for one that has an average founder and that is similar to another religion?
-Depending on which sect of Buddhism you're from, you are either atheistic, pantheistic, or monotheistic. With such huge contradictions of belief, how can you possibly know which way is right?
-Christianity has always had One God.
-Buddhism says that desires are the root of all suffering and you should rid y
Objective Proof of GodIf I tossed a coin 2000 times and called it right every single time, what would you think?
I can only imagine some of the things you would be thinking, but they would all stem from one rationalization: that what was happening defied logic.
To make sure we are on the same page, let me give you some quick facts about the Bible: The Bible was written over a span of about 1500 years (from 1445 BC to 95 AD) in 3 continents, in 3 languages, by 40 authors, and has 66 books. It's mostly a collection of letters written to churches. We can verify the dates of the books of the Bible through the efforts of historians, linguists, and archeologists.
" . . . a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet. . . They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing." Psalm 22: 17-18
What event is this verse referring to? If you have a basic knowledge of Christianity, then you know this is talking about Jesus' crucifixion. If you
God's JusticeGod is the Judge
the King of His court
sin is like crime
and so you fall short
The law is His Word
the absolute Truth
ignorance of it
does not exempt you
You commit crime
you have broke the Law
all of these times
you cannot absolve
Freedom is Heaven
prison is Hell
a fair righteous Judge
should give you a cell
But there is someone
who'll stand up for you
who's been in this life
knows what you go through
Jesus is here
as your attorney
He'll vouch for you
and He won't charge a fee
Because what He does
He does out of love
so you can enjoy
His Heaven above
How can you do so
if you decline Him?
for your sins are great
but He cleanses sin
18 Questions Asked by AtheistTop 18 Questions Asked by Atheists
-- These are taken from my own personal experience discussing with atheists. You can find them also in my "How I Know God Exists" journal, but I thought I'd spread them to the public more. Hopefully both atheists and Christians will read these and learn more.
--Note that I try to keep these concise and to the point. I could probably write a small book on each individual one, haha. But for space and time's sake, I won't. That's why I've also supplied plenty of links for you to learn more. If you think I don't fully answer something, read the links I give you. If you have more questions concerning something, read the links I give you. Anyone who comes to me asking about something that the links could have answered will be ignored.
1. Why would God allow evil?
Two words: free will.
We have free will to commit evil, and free will to choose not to.
Evil is the absence of God. The same way cold is the absence of heat, and darkness is the abs
|I'm always open to discuss. allendrasonlineapologetics.web…|
I'm not really discussing much on DA anymore. I've found people who get angry like to spam my profile or call up all their watchers to bully me. So we can have a private discussion via the link above.
I hide most comments that have profanity, sexual comments, links to porn, or personal attacks on them. I see no reason to have such anger and hatred on my page. But I love repsectful discussions with a mutual search for the truth.
I pray for everyone who comes to me with questions to be blessed and open their hearts to the gift God is offering them. It's so sad to see people led so far astray that they are angry at God.
Remember that God has a plan for your life, as does Satan. Be careful whose you listen to!
