The article reads "... a theory that, in its infancy, the baby Earth may have swallowed an entire planet similar to Mercury." That sounds plausible.
...just wonder how many people will go along with it as it comes from a "reputable" source. Related but off-topic some what- I have to ask, how is evolution even still remotely possible with all of the monkeys that have been running around for thousands of years? They're not in transition. They are still just monkeys. There are no transitional monk mans...well,monks,lol but not monkmans.
The article reads that Canavero..."... will see a man's head removed and placed on a donor's body." Unless there was something wrong with just the donor's head,I'm guessing that the donor had a problem with his/her body that put them in the position of being a donor to begin with (an exception being an accident perhaps). That being the case,wouldn't the person who has just paid 15 million dollars to receive a new body,essentially,just be getting a body that would be,I don't know, prone to whatever ailment killed its prior owner? Here's a better way- eternal life through Christ with a glorified body. Who would be eager to sign up for yet another corruptible body via head transplant?
Frank was very thoughtful to list some of the catechism of the RCC but John Y has yet to respond. There is none blind as those who won't see. Is not the Mary of the RCC also the queen of Heaven and without sin,John Y ? I did say that it would be interesting to see which part of his church's catechism that John Y would reject. And? You will have a difficult job of convincing those who know better that the Mary of the RCC is not a "goddess",J Y,if you cannot respond to the catechism of the RCC regarding such.
Mike,if noname hadn't brought his (Graham's) name up, we would still be and are on other topics. If Graham doesn't want responses to all of his news comments then he could just stop trying to grab the spotlight (as if he ever says anything original or new to begin with). What we would like to hear one day from him that would be newsworthy is the Graham's repentance for leading so many astray and their disaffiliation with the RCC and ecumenical movement. Noname and you brought it up. Just sayin'
The news sources do like to cram him down our throats,noname,(as if he were some sort of spokesperson for the evangelicals) but if you read through many of these threads you'll find that he is usually just a springboard for other topics. Graham does like to be in the public eye though,doesn't he?
Praise God for the voice of ladybug on such forum. She never exercises authority over but always speaks much in a very direct and gracious manner. A lady indeed by Christian standards. Keep contributing ladybug as the Lord sees fit.
Very broad sweeping statements from Beck. He has no way of knowing what Christians care more about,only what the papers say. Lots of propaganda and indoctrination- something which he is very much a party to.
I believe that Frank is probably sensitive to the Holy Spirit and is being obedient. If he isn't,we should all fail so miserably. For someone who is out of the will of God, he has a lot of fruit. And,we have all benefited from such. One doesn't need to ponder on the "what ifs",if one is being used to the glory of God.
John Y asks "... If I tell other Catholics on discussion forums that the only way to become saved is to trust in Jesus alone for salvation then how is it that you believe that as a Catholic I am a disgrace to the cause of salvation?" Because you go to a church that believes otherwise? How can other Catholics take you seriously if your actions suggest otherwise? Is there a whole group of Roman Catholics that attend RC church but actually reject its catechism? There is no such thing as an undercover witness for Christ. One must walk the talk,not just talk. You must just be pulling our legs...seeing how many responses that you can get...maybe? This is pretty basic.
How does Frank forsake the assembling with other Christians just by not being part of a local congregation? There are many ways to join together without being part of a local church.Dorcas and ladybug have covered/explained it very well. I would hardly call it "tooting ones own horn" when 1517 was demanding some kind of answer as to how Frank contributes/acts as part of the body of Christ when Frank offers examples. It was a very judgmental and accusatory statement on the part of 1517. Really... condemning Frank because he doesn't play church one day a week. If such condemnation is any kind of fruit,it is surely bitter and sour. Are you going through some kind of crisis,1517?
Hello MS I enjoy the fellowship along with MANY others that we share on this forum. It's edifying to communicate with one another,occasionally share and always pray for one another. What I thought was just a place to respond to current events has turned out to be a forum by which to fellowship with other believers as well. Praise the Lord! ...keeping Mourner in prayer as well
Cleansing the Temple and harassing/making lynch lists of sodomites are two different scenarios/2 different groups of people-one professing believers,the other-lost sinners. If Jesus walked the Earth today,He would probably clean up quite a few churches which drag His name through the mud and partake of vain traditions which demean Him. On the other hand,He would not be harassing sodomites.
Better for a Christian to be about God's work than to be playing church with a bunch of other like-minded people content in having an air of religiosity and sit on their blessed assurances while the world drops dead around them.
