  1. #2. But is it's #1, then I know where I'm going anyway!
  2. P.s. @William - I have noticed when debating philosophically that many forms of logic fall into the same kind of trap as Zeno's Paradoxes - things that are patently untrue yet can be arrived at via a chain of logic. As logic as only as good as the facts it rests on, sometimes our logic regarding God can fail as it rests on our wooly human understanding of his divine attributes.
  3. Something I have come to realise with many Christians I have encountered is that I entirely agree with half of what they say! I get what you mean about Dr Lane-Craig on this issue. He is a very bright man and well able to dance round Bart and get some very damaging blows, but there is sometimes a danger in thinking you might have just "figured out" God. I love C.S. Lewis on this when he pictures Aslan as not being a "tame lion". Sometimes philosophy and theology are superb tools and sometimes they are the key way man tries to limit God.
  4. Bart is also the Muslims favourite! William Lane-Craig does a great job of debating him though. (I won't post another video up, just in case 😉
  5. Thanks @Origen just getting to know how this forum software works 😉
  6. Dr Tour discusses with great intelligence the possibility of a viable living cell of (any sort) arising (with any timescale) from non-living compounds. Very good information.
  7. I think it is not unreasonable to assume that if evolution were to stand any chance, its first step MUST be possible. The possibility of that first step doesn't in any way prove the theory but if that first step were and impossibility, the remaining conjectures are without foundation. Dr Tour is a synthetic organic chemist working in nanotechnology. If anyone is qualified to comment on this first step, I think he might be...
  8. From what I know of hypnotism, the question of sin connects to the wider question of world view. I would find it sinful knowing what I do about how many people use it. At best, it's like leaving your house unlocked and popping out for a few hours. Sometimes nothing happens at all, sometimes a prankster might pop round and rearrange your furniture (like in the popular hypnosis stage shows) and maybe sometimes a squatter might move in who might be hard to get out. As for me and my house, I lock the door.
  9. Acts 17 NKJV Addressing the Areopagus 22 Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; 23 for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: 24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” 32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked, while others said, “We will hear you again on this matter.” Hunger was created for food, and thirst for water. You are not far from Jesus, @tahaadi I am praying you find the one you are seeking.
  10. @tahaadi This is one of the best presentations of the Gospel I have come across recently:- God bless you
  11. It's the middle of the night where I am so the best I can offer is this diagram which seems to set out a Biblical view well. .
  12. This little video sketch manages to explain an answer that is clearer than many sermons I have listened to!
  13. @tahaadi I found the following information about Deuteronomy 6:4 interesting... Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one* (*echad). In Hebrew, the word “yachid” indicates numeric oneness, while “echad” indicates compound unity. In the Bible, yachid is never used to describe God. However, in Deuteronomy 6:4, echad is the word used instead. In addition, plural pronouns such as “let US make man in OUR image” are also used in reference to God. If God is triune, these are the words we would expect. As further confirmation, in the Greek (a much more complex language than Hebrew), Jesus quotes the Deuteronomy Scripture in Mark 12:29 and uses the Greek word “hen”, which describes a “unified oneness”, rather than using the word “monos” which means numeric oneness. These examples are simplified for the sake of this discussion, but we can see that Jesus Himself describes God as triune; being one in substance only, but not in person. https://www.calvaryccm.com/devotions/12-09-2015/are-you-echad-or-yachid
  14. Another interesting angle is from the perspective of Messianic Jews themselves. Here is a clip where a young Messianic Jewish discusses Isaiah 53 (written nearly 700 years before Jesus was born) talks about Him.
  15. Hi Taha, I have spent quite some time on another forum trying to share the Gospel with Muslims. They are often excellent people who are thirsty to know God! One of the key questions is "Who is Jesus" and on this one the recent film "The Case for Christ", and even moreso, the book may be helpful to you. It would be nice to talk through your questions and ideas with you. God bless!
