Why are Christians so capitalistic and enterprising when it goes against the New Testament? Haven't they read Acts 4?

      To be fair it was an access road. They'd probably just use the 21st century pumping system if the building were flooded.

            Yes it absolutely does, the way you contribute to society with is of immense importance. Even Paul worked to pay his way and you're supposed to work for your master (employer for us, really) as if you were working for God. To the point the Bible says if you're unwilling to work you don't deserve to eat.

    There's nothing wrong with wanting to be successful and make money, but how you make and use that money is what counts. If you make it through bad means or use it for bad means then it is sinful.

    Now the whole ark encounter stuff is just completely bogus though. That should be considered a scam honestly because the whole idea behind it isn't even true, and that's coming from a Christian. There is no way dinosaurs lived alongside humans, and that is 100% what this "museum" implies.

        I reject classical logic, like most philosophers.
        The fact that the flood was local, doesn't mean it wasn't also global.

          Why would you want people making your belief system look ridiculous and antiintellectual?

          • 5 months ago

            Because faith should be independent of reason and vice versa. You shouldn’t have to justify a belief to anyone, unlike knowledge.

            Isn't this just hypercalvinism; who is going to say God isn't using the means of evidence and reason to persuade someone to be a Christian? Albeit he might as well use a fish sundae to do it, which is kind of the problem with reasoning under this deterministic model.

            Okay but do you not see how morally and epistemically nihilistic that is? That just justifies (in a purely philosophical sense) whatsoever anybody does. No Calvinist can say "he shouldn't have raped and murdered that woman" because under your worldview that is the outcome that maximally glorifies God.

            No, you are right. Nothing happens in the world, that shouldn't happen.
            You seriously think God could fail to achieve his desires?

            No, but I think he is powerful enough to reign in free creatures and use their singly intended evil for ultimate good (particularly by punishing it).

            Pick any evil you figure God thinks shouldn't happen.
            If God thinks this evil shouldn't happen, then why would he choose to create a world were he knows it will happen? It would be irrational.
            God alone without creation is already perfect, it's not like he needs to create the world.

            Are you really trying to use the problem of evil? Its called the "problem" for a reason; atheists use it to cause problems for Christianity, not something invoked by Christians. I can just punt to mystery or say he wants free creatures.

            >God alone without creation is already perfect, it's not like he needs to create the world.
            Now you'rd thinking. If this was all just to glorify himself, he wouldn't create anything because he is already maximally glorified. Clearly then, he created purely to let others partake in his glory. And for those who spit in his face he has reserved judgement.
