Only through the water and the spirit
Can you be saved
If you have come to Jesus
It is because his father had sent you
As he will rise you up in the last days
Now you know why you have not found Jesus
As for proof of God all I have to offer you is his word
His word is prophecy
If it comes true will you then believe
But by then it maybe too late for you
Just be honest with us. What's your deal? Are you a theology student who needs "practice" dealing with external arguments? Because now you're just insulting our intelligence.
In the last week or so, you've made threads saying that a belief in God is irrational & that you could prove so without science.
Then you turned around and made a thread claiming you could answer everyone's questions about Creationism, as if you believed in it.
Now you claim you're either atheist or agnostic, as if you don't know that the 2 terms are completely different.
That would work much better than pretending that you're on a different side of the issue every 2 or 3 days. Nobody likes to feel like they're being lied to or manipulated. Is that really how you want to represent yourself?

Hint: If you are not familiar with the term Q source, you could not begin to start a debate with me on Christian theology. So, here's a challenge - convince me that God is real and I will become a believer.
pretty sure this is the same challenge as debating theism, and pretty sure your ability to know about a hypothetical document doesn't make you an expert on Christian theology.
You're missing some key factors regarding Christian doctrine. It isn't the Christians job to convince you. It is the Christians job to obey the commandment to preach the good news. It is the "holy spirit" that convicts you of sin, and gives you the faith needed to understand your need for redemption through Christ. The Christian is just a vessel used by god as a witness.
There are a handful of doctrines on hell in the church. Even Christians can't agree on it. I'm not going there.

Seems to me he is more hellbent on challenging believers to jumpstart his belief, with a preconceived notion that they will not be able to.
I agree with him.

Someone had to be there to press the big red button. The one that stated "do not touch" . The one that ignited the great expansion and brought this universe and this miserable world into existence.And God said "Let there be light..."
Why does there have to be a beginning to existence?

The heart pumps blood...it isn't involved in though processes.
Still - not convinced there need be a beginning. Even the vacuum of space isn't completely nothing.
