As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    The personal skills seem to vary quite a bit when it comes to spiritual tools. Some use the spiritual tools to come to conclusions on question of science, and the results are quite different from the scientists; the Holy Spirit is the claimed source. And this thread, the OP aimed at Bill Mahar and the argument that the story of Jesus echoes the pagan myths, with the conclusion the similarity does not imply source for those ideas. But many Christians do insist that the similarity implies that it is a continuation of the pagan source.

    I suppose we could conclude that those Christians lack "experience dealing and dialoging with the spiritual realm".

    Seems that the Christian faith seldom travels from the religion boards to the secular without Christians having to lose quite a bit. The important parts of the faith always need to be jettisoned when going between sections on CARM. Maybe that is a sign that the person lacks experiencing thing of a spiritual nature.
    I have noticed that no preacher has experienced answered prayer. Even my two uncles have not mentioned it.
