I wouldn't want apologetics in the theology forum because people already think theology is a synonym for apologetics.

Perhaps we create an apologetics forum and you can lead the conversations?

I've always said i did not want to censor topics. But, we need mature Christians who know how to discuss these topics without turning them into a slugfest that goes on ad- nausium like the OSAS OSNAS consumed this site, or before that the other battles that waged against each other.

By mature Christians, i don't mean apologetically adept. I mean a Christian who can disagree with his bother, but not let his pride or zeal consume him to the point that he has to be right, and his primary motive is to convert the other to his way of understanding. For me, that's narcissistic and self serving which doesn't advance the body of Christ forward because it only points to ones insecurity or overbearing sinful nature.
SB,

I agree we need an Apologetics forum on CFnet. I'll be happy to lead with a topic or 2 but I don't have the time to be engaged in all threads. I'm working on Christian academic articles for publication this year.

We also could have another forum on World Religions. A couple days ago I uploaded to my homepage a new article in which I had a major dialogue with a Hindu on a secular, Australian e-journal, The Hindu worldview clashes with reality.

Try this topic: ‘Inclusiveness’ prostitutes the English language
.

How would you respond to the statement: The God (Allah) of Islam is the same as the God of Christianity.

Blessings,
Oz

allah is not worthy of a capital "A".
I understand that the roman catholic church interpreted allah as the one and only true god, and we've been having trouble with it ever since.

Is it just me or does this forum seem to lack traffic ?
what do you suggest we do to liven it up?
Or are you happy with it? do you prefer quiet forums?
I am surprised there aren't even more Biblical threads? This forum doesn't attract scripture scholars? Not that I'm one of course.
I don't need super lively but I think we could improve our situation here.
You want lively?

I haven't had rabbit since I was a kid when my Grandfather use to hunt them and my Grandmother would cook them. It was a treat to us kids. I don't know if I could eat Kangaroo, but am always willing to try something once.
I get rabbit at the supermarket.
It turn off my American friends...
except my relatives over there...we all love rabbit.

I like it like this....Yummy....

SB,

I'm of the view that we could deal in the Theology forum with more apologetic topics such as:
  • What evidence is there for the existence of God?
  • Who made God?
  • Why do any people need God? Is God needed only for Christians and Jews?
  • How reliable are OT and NT? How would you test their trustworthiness?
  • Why some evangelical Christians are not young earth creationists.
They are some of my starters.

It would be nice if you'd start these threads Oz.
Maybe we could discuss topics that are a bit more controversial if we just act civil to each other....

Yeah.

Yes.

They are like wild pigs are in Texas.

And in Italy.
And they were planted in the woods by humans.
What a mistake!!!

They ruin fields..show up in the suburbs of cities and damage gardens and vegetable plantings.

They're allowed to be hunted one time per year.

JLB
Gosh, I hope not.

LOL

My son, 50 now, used to be a manager for McD's when he was about 20 (believe it or not), he said the meat is good,,,but it came in frozen, so how could he know for sure????
Managers at McD's have to attend McDonald University...really. I think it's in Texas,,,,not sure.
