    Which God are we talking about ? Let’s say there are twenty major religions and each god is enough different then all the others, to be just as different from no god at all.

    Really, if you’re a Christian you’re obliged not to believe in any of the other false gods. Really, how much different are you then an atheist who doesn't believe in the same 19 other Gods as a Christian.....save just one more, the Christian god. Percentage wise, that’s no more then a 5% deference. So let’s get real believers. You are 19/20 part atheists too.

    ⁜→ Ritter, et al,

    And yes, the dispute continues.

    I've attached a link to a video below. It is less than five minutes long.

    (COMMENT)

    Ah yes! "Thomism" I am quite familiar with the Five Proofs pertaining to the existence of the monotheistic "Existence of God."
    My favorite is the "Theory of First Motion." Although the contemporary best theory is, of course, "Intelligent Design." And, oh I wish, any of these were so...

    And "Thomism" (in a way) leads to the 21st Century adoption of the "Something From Nothing Theory," and the "infinite series."

    See: The Video by Professor Lawrence Kraus: Something from Nothing

    (COMMENT)

    I agree with the theists in the sense that on one can define the monotheist Supreme Being character, attributes or intentions; although many tries. Much of theology is a rationalization for a predetermined outcome.

    Yes, the creation cannot know the mind of the creator. IF you read the very last sentence:


    Most Respectfully,
    R

    Having fun just making things up ? No proof of anything. It’s all wishful thinking and no more true then the Wizard of Oz.

    Then why are you NOT condemning your BLOTUS's Crimes Against Humanity on the southern border?

    Interesting...so because ONE theist denies a thing (or accepts it) we then attribute this to ALL theists? If that were truly the case in reality ther actually would be only one God and Church.

    Real Christians do not applaud the needless death or sufferings of the poor. They should immediately take action to reverse the harm done by Trump.

    None of these BLOTUS supporters who claim to be "Christians" have an answer for his Crimes Against Humanity.

    They probably still won't have an answer when their "judgement day" comes due either.

    Please :roll:
    Trump isn't a pastor OK? No religion boasts more charitable contribution to humanity than Christianity. Period, hands down, no argument. Christian charities and missonaries operate 24 / 7 around the globe, and individual donations fund those enormous efforts.

    Wrong. You didn’t need Obamacare if your plan was up to standards. Things like preexisting conditions and being dropped anytime you didn’t turn a profit for the insurance company, weren’t allowed.

    Missionaries?

    There's an old Third World story that you don't hear anymore: "when the missionaries came, we had the land, they had the Bible. When they left, we had the Bible, they had the land".

    Why is it so hard to comprehend medical insurance is not the same as health care.
    While on Obamacare i was making 35,000 per year and buying a home. I had no disposable income. Obamacare took money from me anyway and i had to rent out one of my two rooms to make ends meet.
    I couldn't ha e gone to the doctor even if i needed to. Then at tax season they tell me i make too much money and they want another 1200 dollars because they overpayed my subsidy. No cash in hand it went on the credit card on which i never carried a balance i had one then for a long time...
    Whoever got the thousands of dollars i paid for nothing, you're welcome.

    Obamacare was the worst legislation ever.
    I'd rather be persecuted as a minority that have evil laws like that. Not even goid enough for toilet paper.

    Prior to Obamacare, I like millions of others, had no healthcare coverage at all. Thousands of people's lives were saved thanks to ACA. It should be expanded, not lessened.

    Having health coverage is not the same as actually seeing a doctor.
    Great I'm glad it saved a life or two. Had i gotten sick it would have cost me mine.

    :roflol: As well as the written language, schools, and hospitals. When do suppose South and Central America will throw off their shackles of oppression and denounce the Christianity they're enslaved by? :lol:

    Oh,because they DESERVE it. How DARE these people flee for their lives. And besides, they're all liars anyway, they come from Utopian paradises to come here and collect welfare. And they're inferior BROWN people to boot.
