ATTN: The Q Continuum - 10 questions about your beliefs
Hey, Q. I know we've talked a little in the past, but our interactions have been very limited. You're a pretty intriguing fellow, so I was hoping I could ask you the same stuff I asked CotW. So... here is a C&P of what I asked.



I'm just curious as to what you believe in certain areas of Christianity. You may have answered these before, so forgive me if you have to repeat yourself. It's just easier to ask you directly instead of digging through posts for answers.

Thank you in advance. Hopefully, we can start up a dialogue based on your answers.

1) What is your denomination?
2) What is your stance on the Doctrine of Free Will versus the Doctrine of Election?
3) What is your Origins stance (ie - YEC, OEC, Progressive Creationist, Theistic Evolutionist, etc)?
4) What is your eschatological stance (ie - Pre Trib, Post Trib, Amillennial, etc)?
5) Do you believe in a literal Bible?
6) Do you believe in an infallible Bible? Or an inerrant Bible? Or both?
7) Which version of the Bible do you use for study?
8) What is your background when it comes to Ancient Near East history, culture, and writings?
9) What is your background in regards to the Greek and Hebrew language?
10) Do you give credence to non-canonized books (ie - Book of Enoch, The Assumption of Moses, Gospel of Thomas, etc)?

11. How many walkers have you killed?
12. How many people have you killed?
13. Why?

Did you send him a PM? I don't frequent these two sub-boards as much as I do the normal Atheism & Theism one.

Yeah, I might have to.

RE: ATTN: The Q Continuum - 10 questions about your beliefs
1) What is your denomination?

I'm part of a non-denom movement of churches.

2) What is your stance on the Doctrine of Free Will versus the Doctrine of Election?

I believe in Free Will.

3) What is your Origins stance (ie - YEC, OEC, Progressive Creationist, Theistic Evolutionist, etc)?

I believe the Adam and Eve account is literal. However, only fools disbelieve in Evolution. Evolution is scientific fact.

4) What is your eschatological stance (ie - Pre Trib, Post Trib, Amillennial, etc)?

"Pre-wrath." Believers will go through much of the 7-year Tribulation Period but be rescued from the final days of wrath upon the world.

5) Do you believe in a literal Bible?

Yes.

6) Do you believe in an infallible Bible? Or an inerrant Bible? Or both?

The Bible in the original manuscripts is infallible and inerrant. Thankfully, the extant copies being translated are demonstrably almost 100% the same as the originals...

7) Which version of the Bible do you use for study?

My most frequent reads are the NKJV and the NASB as formal and beautiful translations.

8) What is your background when it comes to Ancient Near East history, culture, and writings?

I became motivated to study them more after becoming a Christian years ago. They are vital to understanding difficult passages of the Bible in their historical context.

9) What is your background in regards to the Greek and Hebrew language?

I studied Greek for a year at university. I've studied Hebrew and Aramaic also, though not to the same extent.

10) Do you give credence to non-canonized books (ie - Book of Enoch, The Assumption of Moses, Gospel of Thomas, etc)?

These books offer glimpses of life in the ANE and have some tidbits of truth in parts, but the 66 books of the accepted Bible are inerrant as well as contain gematria and codes that mark them as unique.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

Tongue Atheism & Theism is a normal board? Hobo

Consider

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I am dying to see the mental gymnastics employed to explain this comment.

Have you not come across the Homo Divinus family of evolutionary beliefs, BnW?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

He believes that we evolved from primates and that god chose Adam to tend his Garden of Eden, even though that's clearly not in the bible. I suppose god chose
Adam and then made Eve out of Adam's rib. Facepalm

One of the more bizarre creation myths I've encountered.

Gods derive their power from post-hoc rationalizations. -The Inquisition

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition
