Does God predestine who goes to heaven.

alllnc
philochristos

I argue that God allows us to choose whether or not to follow Him and be saved. He calls ALL through the Holy Spirit and we can choose whether or not if we want to follow Him. God is love. If being saved is predestined, I argue that this is not love. God says we are created in His image, so I assert that we know what love is since God says He is love and that we are created in his image. I know that I would not birth children to only predestine them to hell. No loving person would do this. How c...

point of fetal pain should be used instead of viability as abortion regulation standard

dairygirl4u2c
TyroneShelton

instead of being able to regulate when abortion can occur based on viability, it should be based on when the fetus starts feeling pain. the fact we'd have to use pain killers to kill the fetus shows the inhumanity of what is being done. viability is not a magic spot of when a fetus feels pain, or is suddenly a human, take it back a few moments and it's still a person. why not just take it back to the humane point of fetus pain?...

there are few claims of inerrancy of the pope prior to 1000AD

dairygirl4u2c

are there many claims of inerrancy of the pope prior to say, 1000-1300? i see plenty that he is a "first among equals" and a highly respected leader, and perhaps even deferred to, but nothing in the way of 'inerrant'. it's said that even if that doctrine is true, it wouldn't just spring up in full force. which i understand. but then again, it wouldn't take more than a thousand years to say something about the pope being inerrant. also, i'm trying to understand a critical point in history....

Jesus Is God

Lucassamson

I would like to have this debate with a trinitarian Christian who believes Jesus is God. I am setting conditions for this challenge and they are as follows. *since Christians belive that God is All-knowing, the pro must be able to prove how Jesus matches this criteria. *Christians claim to be monotheistic, the pro must prove that Jesus is God and there is no other God besides him. *If Jesus was the son of God, how then is he God and yet God is one? First round is for acceptance,...

Gay marriage and Catholics

maddyvonree
mrbobalino

Catholics should not support gay marriage because of the belief that God created man and woman to be made one and procreate. It is also not pro-life to believe in gay marriage because of that procreation piece. This is not saying that being gay is a sin because it's not. This is just saying that redefining the meaning of marriage is wrong. In the Catholic Church, marriage has a different definition than society today. Since God created marriage, it is not correct for any Catholic in society toda...

Jesus Is Not God.

AlhajiDawah
Jake33ss

I begin in the name of Allah the beneficent and the most merciful. I am refuting what the Christians claim and falsely attributed to Jesus(peace be upon him) stating that Jesus is God, because we believe that is something that was fabricated by human beings which Jesus himself never claimed to be God, and it is not part of the Monotheism way of Jesus (peace be upon him) or the way of any other Messenger. Jesus never preached being God and there is no where in the Bible where Jesus said I AM...
