    Apparently some racist groups believe that certain races are inferior because they're the "cursed offspring of Cain." To give one example, the so-called "Christian identity" group. From Wikipedia: Christian Identity ("CI") is not an organized religion, instead it is adhered to by individuals, churches and some prison gangs with a white supremacist theology that promotes a racial interpretation of Christianity. Christian Identity beliefs were primarily developed and promoted by two authors who considered Europeans to be the chosen people and Jews to be the cursed offspring of Cain, the "serpent hybrid" (or Serpent seed (a belief known as the two-seedline doctrine). An early Christian Identity teacher, Wesley A. Swift, formulated the doctrine that non-Caucasian peoples have no souls and therefore can never earn God's favor or be saved. The theology was promoted by George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Identity I also want to make it clear that I know that not everyone who holds this view is racist or anti-semitic.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to pcosmar again. This doctrine not only directly and clearly contradicts Genesis, but it requires a lot of adding to the scriptures what is not there. If I'm not mistaken, Hitler believed in this view, or something similar to it. I'm not saying that as an argument (that would be a logical fallacy) but just to say that it has been used to justify racist or other unbiblical ideas.

    Read it in context. The word translated as evil also refers to disaster, calamity, affliction. It is about judgment. Throughout the Old Testament it is clear that God rewards Israel for obedience and punishes Israel for disobedience. Just as good things come from God, 'bad' does at times too, but it is about judgment (or other purposes), not the creation of moral evil in the first place. "I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.’" Obviously God doesn't create calamity for no reason... that would be a ridiculous thought. So as always, scripture has to be understood in context and in light of the Bible overall, not cherry picked.

    If someone turns on a light, are they creating darkness when they turn it off?

    That's pretty much been my position from the start. I hope I'm wrong, but that seems to be the way it works these days. Presidents are more like actors or spokespersons for the PTSB. If they run as a Republican, they pretend to be conservative… But for the most part it's just an act. When I saw how they shut out Ron Paul, I gave up hope on anyone genuine and good actually making it to the presidency.

    Exactly... at first glance, it appears cruel that God would allow Satan to do what he did to Job. But again, God allowed it to prove a point. Perhaps our present situation is also to prove a point. Not just to Satan, but perhaps to all who would question the sovereignty of God. Now if one believes in predestination, God would already know how Job was going to react, but wouldn't that be cheating?. Sure looks to me like God gave Job the ability to decide for himself how he would react to the situation and was confident, Job would make the appropriate decisions.

    Many of us agree with you that the serpent seed theory is false. I certainly do. But that is different than the idea that the "sons of God" written about in Genesis 6:4 were fallen angelic beings who mated with human women, creating the Nephilim. There are many very compelling reasons to believe that is true, and it was the predominant view for the first 4 or 5 centuries, until the Sethite view came about. To answer your question, the Bible is clear that angels have, at times, taken physical form. Once again, just because we can't completely wrap our minds around an idea doesn't make that idea false. It's the same with the free will so-called paradox – just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it is false, it just means that your finite mind cannot comprehend it, at this time.

    Exactly. And this may be a controversial thing to say, but I believe that sort of hard-core Calvinism is more than a mere misinterpretation of Scripture. It's satanic. Who else but the enemy of God (the devil himself) would want to portray the God in such a horrendous way? A diabolical monster Puppeteer, who causes billions of people to do horrible things, then sends them to a fiery hell for doing precisely what he made them do. A twisted, anti-freedom, tyrannical God who is so insecure that he must micromanage everything and disallow free will. Does that sound like God or another spiritual entity we all know about? I think many of us here know the answer to that question. Amen. The ironic thing is that SF has accused a few people here of being misled by a cult, but his belief system has almost all the characteristics of a cult. It certainly warps minds, because hard-core Calvinists throw logic, common sense and their conscience out the window to instead believe horribly twisted ideas, based on cherry-picked scripture.

    Who are you to question God as to why He made this world and everything in it? Could be everything we know about was created to prove a point and you are just missing the point.

    I'm not distressed, it's not about me. It’s that unbelievers or people who are on the fence are continually being misled by this religion section. There's a lot more to be said about that, but the last thing I feel like doing right now is getting into an argument with you. Thank you for sharing your testimony. And thank you for speaking out on these threads. You're absolutely right that God is not a capricious, monster control freak puppetmaster, as Calvinists portray him. The funny thing is, they sound exactly like Christian hating hard-core atheists. Exactly.

    You might be happy to know I finally watched Braveheart. Actually, I turned it off about 3/4 through. Knowing how it was bound to end, I walked away.

    I'm thinking NC was right and that we should throw out the whole religion section. It likely does more harm than it does good. And things never change around here.

    Not that you're ever wrong, but that's 12 years old. The most recent insert says And the article clearly states that Tamiflu has been banned for patients between the ages of 10-19 since 2009 in Japan. But of course, you still dole out medical advice based on what a dentist believed 150 years ago, so I guess it sort of fits.

    Yeah, I've been hoping for a smaller government. It's too bad this isn't really one of those things that causes smaller government. They just say they are shutting down, but they keep spending the money anyway.
