    Christianity: Re: The Illogicity of the Trinity

    Thanks for clearing up my misconception about what you meant by "orthodox"; I indeed was reading more in it than you intended. I'm tempted to make a fuss about the difference between majority and...

    Christianity: Re: The Illogicity of the Trinity

    I apologize for interrupting Sigfried's beautiful job (keep at it, bro :afro:).... This is merely a post script to Lukecash's post script:

  3. Re: If the Christian God actually exists, then why are there so many non-believers?

    No worries, man... I've been a bit absent as of late, but I'm trying to check in at least once a week. Fire away, and I'll reply as soon as I can.

    Re: Who does God look like?

    What I am suggesting is that to decipher whether God's physical form is like a human's or an alien's, one would simply be able to ask Him. I certainly am not advocating relative truth - God is either...

    Re: Who does God look like?

    Sweeeeeet!!! As I'm one that's totally happy with throwing away the Nicene Creed (I believe that Christ still lives as a resurrected Man), I'll take the problem on directly and say ours. Why?

    This is really cool - If you could use me, I would love to be a content writer (or even a staff member, but I imagine you would want someone with a little more presence here for that).

  9. Re: If the Christian God actually exists, then why are there so many non-believers?

    If non-Christians are actually worshipping the Christian God without being aware of it (if I read your post correctly), then why evangelize? Are you saying that everyone will be saved, provided they...
