Gospel of John, chapter 1 July 25, 2012 i find this video to very good. i like how there is music playing ever so lightly in the background so that it doesnt overwhelm thoughts and the pauses between lines gives time for reflection on what these words actually mean and how they can relate. only i wish it was the entire chapter other than thank you very much i really appreciate it!

Coldplay - knowing God June 17, 2012 Well if Chris is a "Alltheist" that believes in everything he will find out that he loves God because God is everything and is in everything. God is omnipresent. MRhoads32
Jesus and the joy of drinking June 13, 2012 Sorry, you non drinkers are all wet. Jesus was invited to the wedding. They were already tanked up on wine. Not grape juice. The wedding party was out of wine. Jesus brewed up a better batch. Search for the health benefits of beer. Even better than wine. Moderation... homebrewer7
Why did a timeless God create time? May 21, 2012 What I don't understand is that you start off by saying God is everything,
then you say God is nothing. This same argument can be used to explain the big
bang lol And it sounds very contradictory. In nothing, how can there be
positive and negative because that would obviously mean there are two things
and the action of them cancelling each other out is cause and effect. And if
cause and effect exists, on the basis for your argument, then one can ask the
question what caused God. Good attempt tho CMVMic
Alicia Keys; No One May 16, 2012 How come the church is so much like the the world? We choose to listen to the attractive people and make them our stars,,make them famous.Yes,,,its the body that makes the popular singers.It is shamefull that we do this.Unattractive people have excellent voices.They can write music just as well as attractive people.Talent does not discriminate towards looks.So why do we choose the attractive people to make our famous? mastersduhgree
Love - The Power of Positive Psychology? May 03, 2012 I really love this topic about Positive Psychology. I came across this topic when I was taking my General Psychology course, but we did not tackled it completely. This video is very helpful. illinois008
The Hydrology of the Bow River; Finding God in the flow May 03, 2012 When you said early in your sermon “Words are underneath the water” I was quickly reminded of the wonderful word dialogue. And then a little later on you said “ What He desires speaks of meandering words of comfort and peace to your soul.” So even though I didn’t hear a lot more about meandering words, I thought I should post this:
the word "dialog" comes from the Greek dialogos. Dia means through. Logos means the word, or more broadly, the meaning. Bohm suggests that the original meaning of dialogue was the "meaning passing or moving through ... a free flow of meaning between people, in the sense of a stream that flows between two banks." In dialogue, Bohm contends, a group accesses a larger \"pool of common meaning,\" which cannot be accessed individually. "The whole organizes the parts," rather than trying to pull the parts into a whole.
The purpose of a dialogue is to go beyond any one individual's understanding. "We are not trying to win in a dialogue. We all win if we do it right." In dialogue, individuals gain insight that could simply could not be achieved individually. "A new kind of mind begins to come into being which is based on the development of a common meaning, which is capable of constant development and change."
The Power of Positive Psychology? May 02, 2012 Brett, That sermon was pttrey difficult for me too. I struggle with those same questions too! I wonder if an answer lies in how we define fruit and works . If it means feeling happy and leading people to Christ, then you're right, there are lots of times when that is lacking in my life. But if fruit means spiritual growth and learning to be more like Jesus, or loving people better, or being more patient, then I think we would typically (with maybe a few exceptions?) have that kind of fruit in our life.
Theology of Oil: Oil and God May 02, 2012 Why is anyone talikng about pathetic failure of religous beliefs? You might as well wallow in the dirt like some ignorant savages. The time for being controlled slaves is 100 years ago. So not fall victim to magic and bulls**t.No-religion is the one defining thing that the red communists got correct!

The Face of God in Disability May 02, 2012 kbot: I am going to assume you are ainskg, why help people who can not help themselves and were born with disabilities, not of their own choosing .*If you have to ask, then there is really no hope for you. I can only hope you are personally adversely impacted by one of these diseases and have to rely on others. Only then will you understand their lives and know why they need our help.*Normally I would not wish that on anyone, but someone like you needs to know what it is like.
Anger and Metallica April 29, 2012 I can't believe this rubbish Van Sloten is propagating.If Metallica band members have the problems he's yapping about, them van Slouton should rcognize that the angry music they play comes from hurt and possiblly demonized persons. Thru their music, they are infusing their hatred and hurt subtily in all who choose to listen to them. Secondly, in listening to this prevaricator of new age and God loves everyone and everthing rubbish, he needs to stop thinking about what metallica is saying and look at what they are doing to resolve thier inner conficts. As a Christian, I am sick to death of desperate preachers like this who are willing to take risks with the faith of other believers, and openly choose some controversial subject to try and raise profile of funds. All van slouten has done is give kids implicit approval that all is good,should be lostened to; and that Christians should feel free to let all forms of music and philosphhy into their lives have we become so desparate that we need to try and fine some obsure truth form some athiest.
Lets see.. how about Axl Rose his dad was a Pentecostal Pastor or Marilym Manson his name represents a unique way to send people on to God! I could name 20 others, and they all have some spiritul truth that is buried in their words and music. Why not raise their profile with the church group? In this day and age when the church is dying, it makes no sense to offer the wisdom of emotionally challenged men, and disregard the words of God.
If you are going Van Slouton's church you better get out.becuse the next stupid thing he might do is invite metallica to come and preach an uplifting message at NEW Hoplessness! irratated1
Why did a timeless God create time? April 24, 2012 Simply. God is unchanging and exists eternally in the "now". Not in a dimension of "time". But "to create" is "to change". And change requires time. So for God to create, the first thing he created was time and creatures to create within that dimension of time. And so we do....changing (creating) every second of the day. God's "will" is not "thought". "Will" just is, so no time is required.
As to T1 and T2, God is all things.....positive and negative....which cancels each other out. Zero. So God is "everything"; but in fact, God is "nothing". In "nothing", all possibilities exist; as opposed to "everything" that can be eventually defined. So the Bible is correct that all things were created from nothing. Thus, no time in Zero.
