  1. According to Romans 2:15, people who don't have God's Law in written form, they still have it in their hearts. Here's an example of an (apparently non-Christian) Indian man who did something that Christ would probably congratulate him for:
  2. So it wasn't God The Father The One Who created everything through Jesus?
  3. How is it wrong? That's literally what you said, but phrased it in the form of a question.
  4. Me: How do you reconcile the teachings of God from the Bible with the findings of modern-day science in terms of the advisable diet for our species is, considering that The Bible is supposed to be the unchangeable Holy Book that contains advice for all humankind? Him: People in Biblical time did not have access to the proper type of diet all year around. His answer is replacing my proposition with a different one, namely that the people in Biblical times lived in harsh conditions that did not allow them to eat a proper diet. That is unrelated to the fact that The Bible is not addressed exclusively to the people in Biblical times, but rather to the entire humankind till the Second Coming of Jesus. While God knew that the Israelites will not be able to keep the entire Mosaic law while they were under the rule of other nations, He still gave them the law. To keep it during the times when they were free and able to. Therefore, unless God knew that mankind will never ever be able to have access to fruits and vegetables all year round, I see no reason how his answer addressed the problem.
  5. Yes, it's a straw man argument, because you're not addressing my point. I wasn't asking whether a fruitarian or a raw vegan diet is easily achievable in our fallen world. I was asking whether God's advice to eat meat, bread and dairy is reconcilable with the findings of science in regards to the optimum food for our biological design. In other words, why would God warn people to stay away from a lot of things because they are not the way He intended them to work / they are not natural (homosexuality, divorce etc.), but not tell people the way that their digestive system was designed to work optimally. You will find all those issues addressed in this book: https://www.amazon.com/Detox-Miracle-Sourcebook-Complete-Regeneration/dp/1935826190 or by looking up online Dr. Robert Morse's videos . I'm sure you can find the pdf version online for free, but for copyright reasons, I'm not going to post a link to it. There's a thing called a healing crisis. When your body has accumulated too many toxins and you switch from junk food (and drugs) to a raw vegan diet, you will start detoxifying your body too quickly, which will cause some adverse reactions. You have to transition to a different diet gradually. Just like how people who have been raw vegans for years and suddenly start eating meat and dairy develop certain negative reactions. All diet changes, if done abruptly, will cause the human body to not be able to adapt immediately. Here is scientific proof that we are a predominantly frugivore species: http://creationislove.com/humans-are-frugivores-were-designed-to-eat-mostly-fruit/ Here is the explanation about Ashton Kutcher: https://www.mucusfreelife.com/jobs-kutcher-radical-fruit/ Steve Jobs never went on a fruitarian diet all of a sudden. His biographers and his family said that he alternated weeks of being raw vegan with weeks of eating cooked meals.
  6. That is irrelevant. It's a straw man argument. And you're also underestimating God's powers. If He could make water come from a rock, He could make fruits and vegetables all year round.
  7. Do you also ignore provable aspects of reality that you can experience yourself? Try adopting a fruitarian diet (exclusively raw fruits and some vegetables) for a few months and notice if your health will improve or worsen. Certainly, it is Biblical to test the spirits. So why not test the theories too? @William, I'm guessing you're not going to bother explaining what I quoted above...
  8. Recent scientific studies have shown that people live healthier lives on a fruits-based diet with a few raw vegetables included. Grains, dairy and meat are considered to be foods that cause mucus and acids in our bodies and, consequently, produce health problems. How do you reconcile this information with God's orders for the Israelites to eat meat, with God's description of the promised land as the land of milk (dairy) and honey, and with Jesus advising people to eat bread to celebrate His memory? Here are some scientific articles about these: http://www.gnet.org/5-deadly-reasons-why-you-should-not-eat-bread/ https://www.bustle.com/articles/137865-8-reasons-meat-is-bad-for-you-yes-even-chicken http://drhyman.com/blog/2010/06/24/dairy-6-reasons-you-should-avoid-it-at-all-costs-2/ http://www.raw-food-health.net/Frugivores.html Does this mean that God and Jesus voluntarily gave people unhealthy dietary advice? Do these new scientific discoveries destroy Christianity?
  9. During His life on Earth, was Jesus ever referred to as "Immanuel" by anyone? The New Testament doesn't tell us. Everyone called him "Yeshua" or "Rabbi"/"Teacher"/"Master"...
  10. Enlighten me then. What covenant of works? He made us that way in the first place. Why make something that you know can't live up to your standards? He didn't need us. God doesn't need anything or anyone as He is self-sufficient. Which only leaves one other option: He wanted us. Therefore, God wanted to create us this way. He wanted to create us as fallible and therefore He is responsible for our suffering.
  11. If I didn't come to that conclusion, I wouldn't be able to be a Christian in the first place because I completely disagree with most of God's commandments from the Old Testament. I just accept them as rules given my someone who is superior in power and whom fighting against would be futile and end in my destruction. But - hypothetically speaking - if I was (a) God, I would never command the annihilation of entire nations because they didn't obey my rules. I'd take a different approach and bedazzle them with miracles and signs every single day until they learned to love me and make it so they couldn't sin. For example: - if someone tried to commit adultery - boom! give them temporary impotence during that day, so that they can't engage in fornication - if someone tried to kill or harm another person - boom! give them temporary paralysis during that day, so that they can't go through with their murderous plan - if someone tried to lie / give false testimony - boom! make them mute and deaf during that day, so that they can't hear or speak lies - if someone tried to worship other gods - boom! appear to them in a dream and tell them, "you should not worship other gods besides Yahweh" and so on... Of course, for the people who did obey my rules, there would be awards... Now, wouldn't that create a much better world?
  12. Well, that's pretty much how Muhammad felt about the people he ordered to be killed. He thought that the inhabitants of the lands around had sunk so far in sin, according to what he believe was the real God (Allah), that he ordered their execution. Unlike the Israelites, Muhammad seems to have been more merciful as he did not order complete genocide. He allowed non-Muslims to live as long as they paid a tax to Muslims and declared themselves as inferiors. I'm not claiming that he was right, but from a moral standpoint, his views are just as justifiable as the Israelites'.
  13. Aren't we forgetting the massacres made by God's chosen people in The Old Testament, which Jesus did not condemn whatsoever, nor did He say He came to abolish?
  14. Wikipedia defines "evolution" as: Evolution is change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. The heritable characteristics affect the brain too, and atheists consider that morality is just a byproduct of chemical and electrical activity in various parts of the brain, which it is partially true considering the discrepancy between many customs of various nations throughout history. The moral law is basically funded on principles such as: "I don't like this thing and you don't like this thing, so let's not do this specific thing to each other as a means of maintaining a peaceful atmosphere." Individuals of the same species, having developed a means of communication, made compromises in order to survive, and these compromises eventually evolved into a list of laws that later on advanced humans defined as "morality".
