Is The Gap Theory Biblical?


Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This debate is about the Gap Theory and whether or not it is biblical. This is to be a friendly debate using the Bible as our final authority. Both parties agree to the inspiration and authority of scripture. Definition - The gap theory postulates that an indefinite span of time exists between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. This time span is usually considered to be quite large (millions of years) and is also reputed to encompass the so-called "ge...

Does Islam worship the same God that Jews and Christians do, as they claim to?


One of the underlying doctrines of Islam (not one of their "pillars") states that Muhammad was a prophet of the same God (called Yahweh) as all previous Jewish prophets. The canonized Scripture of Islam claims that it (the Quran\Koran) "confirms what came before", meaning, what you find in the older books (the Jewish Torah and Christian "Gospels") you should find "confirmed" in it. (Muslim scholars will try to tell other people that this "confirmation" only means that where the two agree, it con...

Stockholm Syndrome with God


The original question: "Is religious fanaticism actually Stockholm Syndrome with God as our captor?" My answer: No. No, he is just as mad, upset and heartbroken about hard and tragic events as we are. He "cries with us when we suffer and rejoices when we do what is right." (Elder Gary E. Stevenson). He is the literal father of our spirits, and loves us beyond our comprehension. He allows things to happen out of necessity, we were given our free agency when we came to this earth. Free agenc...

Is the Bible against women's rights?


The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...
