Pyramids Survive Flood
in Gen. Ch 11 everyone on earth lived in Babel modern day Iraq. There was no ancient Egypt at the time of the flood which is Ch. 6.

Can God Die
Why would Almighty God need Paul's weakness to make Him strong?
---barb on 6/19/15

Paul's weakness reminded Paul that no matter how powerful Paul got he still need God's power. In Paul's mind, he could serve God better if the thorn was removed. But actually the thorn helped Paul than hindered him, because he had to rely on God continually.

Can God Die
We describe the Godhead as three persons who have equal power and nature but different characteristics. So we can say God is one and God is three. Think of it has a small company, A manager, a worker, a salesman. Together they are the company, call it God but different roles: the Father, Son, Holy Spirit. See Gen. 18 Abraham calls one of the men, "Lord" this is God's Son before Mary in the OT. Or the firey furnase in Daniel, there are 4 men in the furnace who is the other person,

//Why do you have to muddy up a clear message that God's Son volunteered to die for us and His Father brought Him back to life . . .
---1st_cliff on 6/14/15//

I agree with this statement as evidence of the trinity.

Can God Die
Man has 2 natures. Body man and Spirit man. See Romans 5-7. When Adam was created he was created in the image of God. However, Seth and the human race was created in the image of Adam. Gen 4. Before the fall Adam's spirit man was alive symbolized by the Tree of Life. The spirit man is immortal however it can die because the wages of sin is death. Thus we have a dead spirit man at birth. Jesus had virgin birth aka no Adam sin thus his Spirit man is alive. On the cross all of the world's sin was placed on Jesus thus his body man died. However, his Spirit man had never sinned thus the resurrection. Romans 8.

St. Thomas Not Skeptical
there is a difference between testing and seeking. We have this modern day mentality of all or nothing. We also make faith a "blind faith" instead of relying on past experience and God's continual blessings in the past to help us take each day struggles as they approach. There is a reason the crossing the red sea is repeated over and over in the red sea to remind Israel of God provision.

How Involved Are Pastors
Matthew 28 describes the process. A pastor should not be talking to one spouse and not the other. The pastor can talk to each individually but not exclusively. "One seems right until both sides of the story are told"

Submit Pastor Questions
My previous church has. It worked well. We usually use it during a relationship series. You would text the questions before or during the worship section of the service into queve then a person would collect them. The questions then could be displayed on a screen during the preaching section. The pastor would give a 5 minute or so talk about that subject.

I Want More Money
I would ask myself, By giving this person money, "Am I helping or hurting this person."
The rich (you) rules over the poor (them), and the borrower (them) is slave of the lender (you). Proverbs 22:7

What Are God's Laws
Romans Ch 14
God gives us inflections and other preferences that sometimes i will obey and other people will not obey. However, they are still God's laws for me. This does not include something God has flat out said not to do like sexual immorality and the like.

Explain Romans 6:14
No, Ch 6 v 1. How can we who died to sin still live in it.

Do We Need To Repent
Depends on your definition of repent.
Your definition of repent is of an acknowledgement of sin, which I totally agree with and follows 1 John 1:9.

Your friend might becoming more from an identity perspective definition of repent, found in Romans 5-7. There are two types of sin in the Bible and both are Biblical and needed in our daily lives. Action and thought based vs identity based. Your friend is operating from a position of strength, by God's power, that (s)he has overcome sin. Your friend may think that a need to repent is to require a re-acceptance of Christ, which is not Biblical. I highly recommend "The rest of the Gospel" by Dan Stone. The word "rest" is intended as a pun for peace.

St Paul Save Some
This all things is "an under the sun" statement. He is not claiming to be THE savior. He is claiming to do all ideas, personality, objects, etc to display Christ. For example, Paul related the statue of the unknown god to God in Athens or ate like a Jew in Jewish circles or Gentile in Gentile circles. The idea here is of relationship.

Think You Are A Christian
I surrender my good works for his good work to be my identity.

How To Forgive Someone
There are three mindsets to restoring a relationship after an offense.
Forgiving is focused on you loosing the bitterness toward someone. Best analogy I have heard is UNforgiveness is you drinking poison hoping something bad will happen to that other person.
Forgetting - It does NOT mean you know longer remember the offense. It means IF you decide to restore a relationship you do not bring up that offense at a later time.
Wisdom - You do not put yourself into that situation so that the offense happens again.
There is a reason Jesus said you must forgive 70*7. because sometimes you have to do it daily, even without interaction with that person. Agree with the comments below.

Early Christian Church Popular
i have asked that question many many times. The early church had racism, persecution, and lies. But that is what idealism will do for you. I think it also has to do with people think life was simplier because of less communications.
