Titus 3:9 (King James Version)


9) But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.




There is another member of this forum who uses this Scripture reference in their signature.


It is good advice for all to follow.

Just some unasked-for-jammed-in-your-face-preaching-trying-to-disguise-itself-as-conversation, and the obligatory opinions, both pro and con.

Why do people say this should be moved to PD? This is not a political thread.


It's not a scoring game either. It's not a jammed in your face preaching.


Bottom line someone cared to address an obvious cry out in a signature.


That's what happened here kido.

Yes Sir, that's how I see it.


So many things one could put in their signature and you picked that. You have an issue you feel needs addressed. Someone has tried to do that, maybe in a not so perceptive way, but it was someone who cared and then got pounced on for caring.

Nope I don't have an issue that needs to be addressed, and I didn't cry out for help.


The signature addresses an issue. It does not ask anything of anyone.


I also don't see the person who decided to start a thread about it as anything other then an opportunist looking for a place to preach and spout off. Someone who was, to use his own words looking for a "receptive audience".


A "receptive audience" would be people who went to see or hear something on purpose and willingly.

I guess it depends on how you tilt your head when reading it. :shrug:



When I read this, I couldn't help laughing. Thanks, I needed that.


I hope the humor I saw in your reply doesn't get taken personally.

"There is no God but Allah" - Muslims


"I believe in one God" - Christians


Are both of these statements true?


Please discuss.



How would you answer this question ?

It is a matter of faith.


Faith is not a provable thing.


Faith exists for a person, or it does not.


That said Allah and God are one and the same.


The only possible answer would be "yes"

where's your evidence?? :rofl2:


but will answer anyway... ;)


musilim man believes it and is true for him.


christian man believes it and is true for him.


hence they are both true.


where faith in god is concerned there is no evidence, no matter what bs you post and would like others to believe, in the end it's only what you believe and you that has faith in it being true. ;)


me, i believe what you believe is true to you, so i'm not going to try and alter that because i have no proof for or against, but i'm also going to give the same consideration to everyone else regardless of their faith. ;)


i don't live any day worried that god won't accept me in heaven. ;)

But it is..............evidenced by the testimony of Gods own word.



Romans 10:8-17 (King James Version)


8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;


9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.


10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.


12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.


13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.


14How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?


15And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!


16But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?


17So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.






We see by the testimony of God that faith is demonstrated by action. Not by words alone.




Hebrews 11 (King James Version)




1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


2For by it the elders obtained a good report.


3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


4By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.


5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.


6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


7By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.


8By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.


9By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:


10For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.


11Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.


12Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.


13These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.


14For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.


15And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.


16But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.


17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,


18Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:


19Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.


20By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.


21By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.


22By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.


23By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.


24By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;


25Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;


26Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.


27By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.


28Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.


29By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.


30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.


31By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.


32And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:


33Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.


34Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.


35Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:


36And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:


37They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;


38(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.


39And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:


40God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
