New Testament In Matthew 5:26 and Luke 12:59 Christ is condemning sin and speaks of liberation only after expiation. “Amen, I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last...

I should be asking you that question
Ask a Catholic - Posted by dsjpk5 2018-06-24 20:03:41
Please elaborate.

This is a thread I started on DDO and found it to be rather fun and interesting. Basically, if you've ever had a question about the Catholic Church, let me take a crack at it. If I don't immediately k...
About the downtime today... - Posted by dsjpk5 2017-07-14 13:25:48
Glad to see it's back up and running!

I've done no such thing. I challenge you to show me otherwise.

An egg needs sperm and you ignore most of my question on his coveting which makes you also dishonest. Who said an egg was involved? Do clones require egg and sperm? And since when is a God of ...

Wrong word and B.S. You cannot know what you cannot reach. Now you are just lying. Sorry for the typo, but my argument remains. For example, I may not be able to search a black hole, but ...

No. There was no physical contact between Mary and the Holy Spirit.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. (Ps. 145:3) Unreachable isn't synonymous with unknowable. Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways, a...

From what authority does the Pope derive his own authority from? In other words, why is the Pope, above everyone else in the world, able to have the position that he does? I understand that the first ...

Perhaps, but those children and babies died anyway so that negates your multi task. How? Are glib answers all you are good for. It certainly seems so. Bad arguments are easy to def...

I have no problem with the dictionary definition. I wasn't sure if that's how you were using the word. Let's go over the first definition from dictionary.com: noun, plural species. 1. a cla...

It speaks against your tradition, not mine. First, I guess you have dropped your "spark of God" claim. Second, concerning tradition, my point is that the verse only decries one tra...

Wow. With what, 10 million children under 10 dying of starvation and other preventable diseases yearly, you think God thought of your financial needs above their need to live. No. He didn't ...

It depends on how you define "species". Can you elaborate?

True that shepherds are not authors, in literal reading that you do not believe in, I never said I don't believe in literal interpretations. It depends on the writing styles, context, and audien...

They refute what you put by indicating that the authors of the scriptures you might use are shepherds without understanding and are promoting traditions that do not come from within themselves and are...

Posting verses by themselves is not an argument. In what way do you think those verses refute my claims?
Ask a Catholic - Posted by dsjpk5 2017-07-03 03:05:01
I would assert that the Old Testament authors would often exaggerate God's involvement in events in an attempt to establish the concept of His providence.
A new argument that Christianity is polytheistic - Posted by dsjpk5 2017-06-30 15:02:52
I have an old argument that Christianity is NOT polytheistic... It specifically says it's monotheistic. Not only that, but it claims the inerrancy of the Bible... And the Bible specifically denies th...

My presumption here is that the other Mary referred to here (Mary mother of James) is the same Mary who is also mother of Jesus. But I suppose it's an interesting reading that maybe Mary had a sister...

My Bible's rendition of Matt. 27:61 doesn't even mention James. Interesting. I should have provided more context, my apologies. The passage in question begins at verse 55, and ends with 61. I...

Does this not undermine the concept of petitionery prayer? Do Catholics Offer petitionary prayers? Would not such request be in vain as whatever God in infinite knowledge and goodness already know the...

What role does prayer have for a Catholic? It's central to growing our relationship with God. Is it a commandment to pray? From the Catechism of the Catholic Church: 2702 The n...

Huh, I didn't know that. So do you think James wasn't Jesus' real brother or something? No. The Hebrew culture didn't have a separate word for "cousin". Matthew 27:61 identified Jame...

As a Catholic, of course I would disagree with the assertion that Mary had any other kids other than Jesus since we claim she remained a virgin her entire life. Your scenario is definitely poss...

First, how do you insert quotes? Second, yes I am at least dipping a toe here. You have a good point concerning cells. No, I am not kidding.
Compelling Argument Against God - Posted by dsjpk5 2017-06-28 11:08:04
I see a couple of flaws in your syllogisms. In your justification for the first P1, one could argue we are the collection of cells, not that we're contingent on them. Next, I disagree with your ...

Lopsided? Sure, that's a factual observation. Kind of like how LeBron James has a lopsided amount if basketball talent compared to me. It's understood by most biblical scholars that Mary was ab...

Since this isn't the only reason I mentioned, I assume you'll understand when I say, all things being equal,cadoptive parents should be given the same respect as biological parents.

There's a lot one could say, but I think the main reason we do is because God seems to have given her more honor. Joseph wasn't prophesied about in Genesis 3:15, but Mary was. Joseph wasn't immacula...

If you mean "with infallibility", it depends. It depends if he speaks as the universal fear of the Christian Church on a matter of faith and morals, or simply as a theologian.
