    The parable of the talents

    Devils are not self-sufficient beings but must rely on God for their continued existence. Which is what the word believe means, to rely on, cling to, trust in. But we are not saved by believing in God. Mankind is saved by believing in Jesus Christ and His saving grace (free gift). And Jesus did...

    The parable of the talents

    Why did Jesus marvel? Because of the centurion's great faith. To Jesus faith was the most important quality. So much so that many would come from the east and the west (which means the gentils) and sit at the table of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob. Because of what? Their faith. And the children...

    The parable of the talents

    Jesus stated when He returns will He find any faith? - the idea being that anyone with faith has endured. This is followed by Romans 16:17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed...

    The parable of the talents

    Mat 8:5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy...

    The parable of the talents

    By using the Lord's remedy and accepting the free grace you are doing what He says. Good works are no long efforts to get into heaven which are fruitless and self righteous works but rather are works from the heart where the heart represents the center of your desires and are of your nature. By...

    The parable of the talents

    Let me offer up this perspective. Note, that the servant with one talent "digged in the earth" and buried the talent. In Genesis, the ground was cursed because of Adam's sin and to which he was destined to work and toil all the days of his life and digging the ground represents works. This is...

    About the "assumption of Mary"

    In Luke 4: 7 Satan said: If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” 8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’” There are two words used worship and serve. Worship we know but the Greek word for serve includes...

    NASA delivers first JWST image

    Sadly, it can never be repaired. It is four times the distance of the moon and any self healing fixtures would have to have been pre-engineered into the system. Luckily it is designed to take this kind of hit and still keep going.

    ID is evitable.

    It did it unjustly so but don't forget that the court system is fickle. For example, Roe vs. Wade. TE and ID have differences otherwise there would not be a dichotomy between the two. That does not mean that they are opposed to each other. Wrong, there is no E without the T. You're either a...

    ID is evitable.

    They have given up trying to teach in the schools, Dover settled that. The ID message is that life happened over billions of years but was guided - the same as Theistic evolution whose member's publications and peer reviews seem to be acceptable to your side of the scientific community. The...

    Is Pluto a young planet?

    My young nephew wrote a little poem that I found amusing: "Some declare that Pluto's just a dwarf and not really a planet That Pluto's previous high status was mistakenly granted But stop and consider and before you make fun That Pluto has five moons while your Earth only has one

    ID is evitable.

    That's it. BTW, Scientology is not a scientific theory, and have a good day.

    ID is evitable.

    Confrontational agreement. A certain percentage and some of your top people and that makes it viable which makes ID even more viable. That means it should not be outlawed as an alternative.

    ID is evitable.

    You are correct, Jesus said, "my sheep hear my voice another they will not follow". Theistic evolution is already a viable alternative via Francis Collins, and all the other TE's, That is not in dispute but design without detection is not reasonable.

    ID is evitable.

    So, we are in confrontational disagreement. So Theistic evolution is an alternative even though ID make more sense.
