Re: From Cult to Established Church

I don't define cult as being synonymous with "different" Did you read Max's whole post? He was setting the parameters of the definition for this thread alone, not for general purposes. The term "cult" has many different meanings, and not all of them are the negative connotation ...

Re: Positive Predestination and Logic

During my recent trip to the village, some Lutheran missionaries who live down the road from us invited us over for dinner. There were four of us from the construction crew that was building our house, and we were each sharing about our denominational backgrounds. I mentioned that I was Assemblies ...

Re: From Cult to Established Church

Just for clarification, Charity was never really a cult by established standards of what a "cult" is. To further discuss this we would need to clarify what we mean by "cult". Max did define what he meant, but you evidently skipped that part? By cult I'm using the definition &quo...

Re: Additions

I understand. But if you love fonts as much as it sounds like, you'll at least appreciate what they are doing. I have actually used that site to figure out what kind of font I need for a particular application. I wanted to make a scale decal of a [font=]Packard[/font] for a model that I have been b...

Re: POLL: Relating to Power: The Christian and Politics

My privilege is not what allows me to live a non-political existence. It is a matter of faith. Everyone could live a non-political existence.

Re: POLL: Relating to Power: The Christian and Politics
