Suffer From Depression
Depression does involve a chemical imbalance, however, is the imbalance a cause, result, or both? Most people experience some type during their lifetime, but some struggle with all of their life. There are varied types and severities.

Tim, A choice? I doubt people choose to get depression. Some may choose to stay in it to some degree, but that too I don't think is a clear cut conscious choice, as depression can be complex with varied aspects such as physical, chemical, emotional, psychological...

Mike, yes, being in abusive relationships can at least in part, cause or exacerbate depression. A chemical imbalance does occur. It'S sad if any religious group is abusive as you point out, and reinforce and/or exploit many with struggles

Apostles Write About Jesus
If I might add something,

The word 'publish' seen in Strong's predates the printing press, indicating meaning beyond a publication as in books as we know them today. I would think it could include earlier forms of 'writing', and other means of making something known. Pictographs as used by ancient Hebrews is an example, and their message may be passed down through time.

Super Blood Wolf Moon
i have not formed an opinion concerning this

Biblical Technology Prophesis
I'm not familiar with Sophie...any relation to i-robot?

Release The Last Penny
Nicole: "I don't have to know. God KNOWS"


I asked because when you stated

"If they are in Hell - no reason to pray for them. They are damned for ever.

If they are in Heaven - no reason to pray for them. They received their heavenly reward.

You ONLY pray for people in purgatory to reduce their time before going to Heaven.",

you emphasized the word ONLY with capitalization, to me implying you or we were not to pray for others you mentioned.

Release The Last Penny
Nicole, if you ONLY pray for people in purgatory, how do you personally know they are there and not elsewhere?

God does know the hearts.....

Can We Say Father

I agree with josef's biblical answer.

There may be various arguments concerning this, such as this concerns one's attitude towards the Father vs an earthly/natural parent and making an important distinction of honoring God over it meant literally? If so or in doubt, the natural parent could simply be referred to as 'dad' or some other synonym.

The New Testament Books
I don't know why there are "so few New Testament books". However, this is interesting:
"And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
Jn 21:25

The New Testament Books
More books, or more words, do not necessarily mean more truth

Aborts And Miscarriage
Generally speaking, there's a difference because of choice and lack of choice

Justice Roy Moore Accusations
RE: innocent until proven guilty...

if this applies to the accused, in this instance Moore, than it also applies to the women, as they too have been accused.

This phrase can have application to any of us, that we judge not, no matter what we might perceive...

Rich Man Lazarus
"What exactly is Abraham's bosom?"
---Loony1 on 10/20/17

to me, from early on, it was simply fathers heart.

Abraham being referred to as "father Abraham", and bosom being : a person's chest when thought of as the place where secret thoughts and feelings are kept or (of a friend) close or intimate. Also, enclose.

Jesus Takes Our Sin
Take away in 1 Jn 3:5.

The first thing that came to mind is remove.

In checking G142 airo. To lift, take away, put away, remove and more

End Of World September 2017
No one even at these games are FORCED to watch the protests or held HOSTAGE. If they are doing as they want the players to do, which is to stand, hand over heart and face the flag than they will not be looking at the players. The people can also just close their eyes if they so choose and focus on the flag, or God or whatever else...they have options

Are Statues Good Or Bad
A statue in and of itself is neither good or bad, only the meaning or interpretation any particular person may give it.

Is Left Behind Movie Correct
Matt 24:37-41 Read all,

note vs 37, and 39, "so shall" meaning in the same way...

vs 39 in particular "And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away,
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

So the answer is given in vs 39. It is not the believer who is taken away, just as Noah and family were not taken away

Are Current Events Bad

Tammy, I think it's better to set our minds on things above, on the Lord than to be overly concerned with the things of this world including current events. Politics and politicians offer no hope of better things in and of themselves, but I would not condemn others for their views. A degree of interest is one thing, simple awareness, but obsessing another. While a believer lives in a moment in flesh, hope and faith are not limited to the current, but are in what is not seen.

What Is The Judgement
Josef: "...I'll ask anyway. What makes one blog question of more importance, or of more relevance than the next?"
Personal perspective may be all that makes one question or response more important than another when a matter of opinion. However, retaining truth is best.
"Are the questions retained on this forum based solely on the participation of the respondent" I can't speak for moderators, but In past when blogs were deleted I had thought that some response(s) may have been thought of as offensive. yet what offends one, another may find helpful or at least simply not taken offense to,... . In developing true understanding, some discussions are beneficial
