Darius the Mede as God Himself

Hi all, For at least 2,000 years, the identity of Darius the Mede in the book of Daniel has been shrouded in mystery. Various theories have been put forth over the years, one of the earliest by Josephus. However, to this day, none of these identities seem very compelling to most. Further, the absenc...

Re: To Marry or not to Marry?

Hi Singalphile, I think Paul says it all. It is good for some to marry, some not so good. If you don't find yourself struggling with preoccupation with the opposite sex, that can be a tremendous asset in serving Christ. Having limited immediate family can be very liberating and enable you to feel mo...

Re: To Marry or not to Marry?

Hi Singalphile,

What has made you recently begin considering marriage? Are there any particular thoughts and feelings you have been having lately? Has anything about your circumstances changed recently?

Re: Are certain types of prayer putting God to the test?

Thanks for the example Mike. I understand what you are saying. There is often a fine line between being demanding and boldly coming before God's throne with our requests. In your particular example, I think I would probably feel somewhat uncomfortable with the phrasing too. One possible way to rephr...

Re: Are certain types of prayer putting God to the test?

Hi Mike, It's great to hear that your prayer life is gaining some momentum! To get a better understanding of what it is that you are struggling with, could you please share a little more about the kind of promises spoken of in Scripture for which you have difficulty praying for fulfillment? Blessing...

Re: Give us this day our daily bread?

Your prayer life sounds about like mine. I talk to God just as I do my wife or close friends. I'm not sure there's anything wrong with that. If God is our 'Abba', I'd expect to be able to talk to him as an obedient child would talk to his earthly father. In relation to your original post, I find com...

Re: Stumbling your brother

Hi TruthFinder. I think Paul's words here imply that the extremes to which we should be willing to go will depend on the extremes to which our weaker siblings in Christ react to us exercising our freedom. If we have regular interactions with a brother or sister where a particular bone of contention ...

Re: Is this where I should post about aliens?

Hi Jon, Thanks for the reply. When I say consciousness is supernatural, I do mean that it has no physical explanation, as of yet at least. I don't believe it ever will, though, because the argument that complexity can give rise to awareness results in a logical contradiction. That is, that fundament...
