• A recent question was asked about pornography, I forget the exact wording?

    It asked why this problem was generally not dealt with in churches - it was deleted. On this spirituality site it was a very relevant question, for wrongly used sex is most certainly a sin as taught in the Bible, and it is a known sin amongst some Christians.

    It asked why this problem was generally not dealt with in churches - it was deleted. On this spirituality site it was a very relevant question, for wrongly used sex is most certainly a sin as taught in the Bible, and it is a known sin amongst some Christians. Christian leadership SHOULD raise this issue, this is not being judgemental but part of a Christian leader/teacher's job. Or are parts of the Bible banned for discussion on this site? I am extremely alarmed. Is this site becoming hassled with too many biased or closed minds that refuse to discuss sensitive issues?

  • What is your view on what I see again and again here on Yahoo Answers?

    This was a recent Question on this site; the additional stuff was about how atheists constantly misquote scripture out of context to back up their stance ... or something like that, I cannot check up on it now - I answered this question and was chosen as the best answer and then it WAS DELETED!

  • When you started school had your mind already picked up attitudes, beliefs or unbeliefs from your parents?

    The atheist scientist Richard Dawkins campaigns against faith schools in the UK because he says that the schools indoctrinate them with mythical religious ideas that confuse factual knowledge. My argument is that school children have already picked up the attitudes, biases religious beliefs and habits of those at home.. There can be no such thing... show more
    The atheist scientist Richard Dawkins campaigns against faith schools in the UK because he says that the schools indoctrinate them with mythical religious ideas that confuse factual knowledge. My argument is that school children have already picked up the attitudes, biases religious beliefs and habits of those at home.. There can be no such thing as a child starting school with a mind that is like a blank canvas. This seems to be what Dawkins dreams of. I say that as a scientist, Dawkins is peculiarly weak on human psychology.

  • This is addressed to Christians and others - Do you realise that the sins of the heart/spirit are the worst.?

    Do you realise that sins of the heart/spirit are more deadly than the sins of the flesh? It was sin of the heart that killed Jesus - mostly jealousy and the fear in the men of power of losing their position. Pride and rivalry were the sins in the religious leaders that angered Jesus so much. Un-forgiveness boastfulness, arrogance, a holier -than... show more
    Do you realise that sins of the heart/spirit are more deadly than the sins of the flesh? It was sin of the heart that killed Jesus - mostly jealousy and the fear in the men of power of losing their position. Pride and rivalry were the sins in the religious leaders that angered Jesus so much. Un-forgiveness boastfulness, arrogance, a holier -than -thou attitude, a critical, abusive spirit- all these are sins of the heart. Jesus readily forgave those whose sin was of the flesh, (of the body) immoral women for example. A man keen on money, Zacchaeus the tax collector. (The natural instinct of survival can inspire a too strong desire for money) He befriended heavy drinkers. King David had a weakness for women (sin of the flesh) he even had the husband, Uriah, of Bathsheba killed in the army's front lines to get his wife. He suffered by losing the child they had ...and yet God forgave him and went on to bless him. God understands our human weaknesses. This question has been inspired by a question about lust that has been deleted, which I wanted to answer!

  • On a question re Christians and the Bible, I wonder why Asker gave the best answer award inappropriately?

    that is - to someone who has not even studied the Bible - a quick read is superficial and useless. I ask - does Asker skim over the serious answers written by genuine not 'bad', Christians? I refer to the Question "If Christians are such good people why do they indulge in such bad behaviour." Posed by Entropy and Pain
