comment Is God bound to future events?
@davidbrainerd: "single moments" don't exist except within a time continuum, so no, God did not "have all his thoughts in single moment." That's a completely non-sensical statement in the context of something that happens outside of time. As LCIII eludes to in his answer, it's the same as talking about rocks so big God can't move them, or sticks with only one end. It's a logical impossibility.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@davidbrainerd: Yes, I will still assert that. This question assumes that God is bound by time. Christians, including hyper-Calvinists, believe God created time, is therefore outside of time, and is therefore not bound by it.

comment American evangelist Jean Darnell, “UK prophecy 1967” True or false?
@77Clash: Your question has an aggressive "prove this" tone. Your first comment about explaining down votes shows that you expected a negative reaction. Every comment since then has been combative. Now you're trying to turn it into a racial prejudice. Wiki and I are honestly trying to help this site's content be properly focused. You seem to be intent on setting yourself up to be a martyr. I encourage you to adjust your attitude, or at the very minimum, adjust the way you express yourself.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@LCIII: No, I don't think it's pedantic. It's not a question of Christianity. It assumes a world view which simply doesn't exist within Christian doctrine. Consider this similar question which was migrated there. It's a similar "challenge" to "god", which has nothing to with Christianity, per se. It's a philosophical argument which has as much to do with Christianity as with Islam, Judaism, or any other belief system which believes in an all-knowing god.

@LCIII: Calvinists don't hold the premise to be true. Nor do any other Christian groups of which I am aware.

@LCIII: All Chrisitans believe in foreknowledge. So he isn't really narrowing it all.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@LCIII: To make it on-topic it would need to be more like "How do [Catholics] reconcile foreknowledge with God's will?" or somesuch.

@LCIII: yes, it would. That's still a question of philosophy.

I don't think that does suggest that it's a "core" part of Catholic beliefs. Just because Catholics teach something (as you have demonstrated) doesn't mean that it's "core."

Your question is based on a false premise. But more importantly for our purposes, it's off-topic.

comment American evangelist Jean Darnell, “UK prophecy 1967” True or false?
Is this prophecy ... considered true or false by Christians? Which Christians? This question is unanswerable in the current form.

This also seems to be a very poor question, because it seems to miss the definition of "average", thinking that "average" means "all" and not "average."

comment Is the height of first century Judeans evidence against the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin?
@fredsbend: I see it as a question asking "Does the fact that the average height of people during X time period was 5'0" prove that a historical account of a 6'0" person existing is false?" Whether the shroud is considered a Christian relic is irrelevant. The OP is asking a question about its historical authenticity.

@fredsbend: I realize it's a "Christian relic," but this question doesn't relate to the "Christianity" of it.

comment Are there Biblical reasons why a Christian should not believe that Global Warming is happening
As for how global warming should affect Christian worldviews (and vice-versa) the two are completely unrelated -- I can't disagree with this more strongly. If global warming is real, then a Christian should have compassion on those affected, and work to help them. If GW is true and caused by man, then Christians should do far far more to slow, or even reverse, global warming. To say it's irrelevant to a Christian is to say that Christians are, or ought to be, without compassion.

I realize this answer is old, and likely came about before we really firmed up the site guidelines, but it's overflowing with unreferenced personal opinions--most of which don't hold up to even the slightest scrutiny. I cannot downvote this answer enough.

comment Are there Biblical reasons why a Christian should not believe that Global Warming is happening
If you believe that God is in control of the world, as do most Christians, then Global Warming and it's consequences are irrelevant -- By the same logic, I can say that fighting for human rights is irrelevant. In fact, that is exactly what it's saying, as global warming (if it is real) is very much a human rights issue, as it is the wealthy taking advantage of those unable to fend for themselves.
