My Webpage on Answering Objections to C.U.
« on: January 03, 2013, 01:20:45 AM »
I just posted a new webpage to briefly answer objections to CU from conventional Christians, Islamists, and Eastern Religions.

Here's the link: http://www.freewebs.com/bilib/answeringobjections.htm.

Let me know if I seem to have made any errors. Thank you.

You said you wanted to know if you made any errors. Apologetics does not mean an apology. Your stuff reads like possible explanations. You also don't write with authority like someone that has grounded themselves in the word for 20 or more years but more like a relatively new christian. While this website is a discussion forum, an apologetics website should be clear, concise, definitive with quoted resources if materials used or extraneous from the Bible.
E.G. Maybe Jesus wan't born of a virgin but around sept 11 under the sign of virgo?? Jesus had to have born of a virgin so as not to have been born with sinless blood in him. If she wasn't a virgin, there would have been no proof she wasn't pregnant by mortal man. The Bible clearly states she was overcome by the Holy Spirit.
E.G. You talk about the Holy spirit like it was the spirit of Christmas or a memory? The Holy Spirit is God whether you believe in the trinity or not, "God is Holy" "God is Spirit". God is "Holy Spirit"
The word of God is correct in what it states and should not be compromised by what other people have written.
I'll take part of my tagline in regular space "No matter what others may say or write, only the word of God is the word of God."
I know what have I done and who am I to critique?... I'm no one and done nothing so please don't take take what I've said as a personal attack. I admire you for putting up and manning the website in the first place. :thumbsup:

It's a good start, but your blog needs more support from the Bible in the way of quotes.  Maybe also a section on what CU is, and what CU is not.  Also, from a historical standpoint, contrast CU against ET and ED theology.
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

Regarding "only the word of God is the word of God", I don't think anyone but God is omniscient enough to know perfectly what is and ain't the word of God. My site mentions some verses that were obviously added to the Bible by the Catholic Church and maybe others in later versions that weren't in known original versions.

Regarding "It's a good start, but your blog needs more support from the Bible in the way of quotes.  Maybe also a section on what CU is, and what CU is not.  Also, from a historical standpoint, contrast CU against ET and ED theology.", how about if I put links to other sites for that sort of info? And, if so, do you have suggestions on which webpages to link to?

LLoyd, I agree with you on "God is omniscient enough to know perfectly what is and ain't the word of God."
I also believe that as he had his writers, write what he wanted written. I also believe He is capable enough to make sure that
His believers and trusters, will keep his word reasonably intact.
I notice you have mentioned Catholic a few times. It is my understanding that the word "catholic" meant universal
and that's good. IMO,What the catholic church is today in America is almost a nonforce. Most catholics are in name only,
don't care what the Pope says, don't read the Bible (not even 'their' translation) and go to church only to perform the "rituals"
of wine, bread, confession. genuflecting, crossing oneself, etc.
