Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

I just submitted one, so you should see it soon.

I've been playing Arthur as noble as I can, but it feels disconnected when the story forces evil acts.

We Need More Threads in this Subforum

C'mon guys! I only have to count down like 3 threads before there are ones that haven't been active in over a year.

It's a gaming site but the word "Christian" appears before "gamer." Surely there are scriptural things we can discuss!

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Concrete example, if I sit around daydreaming about women other than my wife, but never act on any of it in any way, I still have a major problem going on. It is not enough to say "Well it's just fantasy, I don't actually have affairs." And in that sense, our thoughts are absolutely something we'll...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

because we're judged by what we say and do, not by what we think. I would say we are judged by what we say, do, AND think. I believe Scripture backs this up quite concretely. "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart." - Proverbs 21 “I the Lord search the heart and...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Personally - heretically hence why I do not teach it to others - I think we as humans get really caught up on the word Jesus in this instance. I think since we are all bad, we all need what Jesus has done: gone in our place in an act of mercy and grace. However I do not expect Heaven to be password...

Re: DC Comics will be making fun of Jesus in a new comic series

I bet they're too chicken to draw Mohammed
Too chicken to do Mohammed, and not respectful enough to NOT do either him OR Jesus. These people are despicable.

Re: DC Comics will be making fun of Jesus in a new comic series

Just remind them that Islam regards Jesus as a prophet and it would offend Muslims. Then they'll back off.

Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

We Christians of all denominations hear that question a LOT when confronted with doctrines that require a certain standard within Christianity. "Well, my friend is a good person but isn't a Christian. Why shouldn't they get to go to Heaven?" The answer is simple. Because without the Gospel there is ...

Re: Whatcha reading???

Ordinary Men by Christopher Browning. It's a nonfiction book that explains the psychology of how ordinary, regular guys gradually became Nazi killing machines in the "Final Solution" during WWII.

Not a cheerful read, that.

Re: A Plague of Shadows

Sounds like fun! I love a good game of DnD. Hope your players end up going where you plan for - mine never did. :P Enjoy! haha thanks! Actually, the secret to getting the players to go where you want them to is to actually give a little bit of room so you can gently direct the story back. For insta...

A Plague of Shadows

So the new campaign we started on Friday is my first homebrew campaign for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons. I wanted to playtest it in order to get it ready, as I'll be running a D&D game at BFGCon this year. I dunno if people would really be interested in the details, but I'm gonna post a campaign l...

Re: Scrambling the Reactor: The Death of an almost 2 decade old D&D club.

We had the first session of the newly revitalized gaming group on Friday night. Reasonable people only. 'Reasonable' being defined as "not behaving like a 5th grader." Tony was there, Kyle was there. I also had a player return after a VERY long (meaning 15 year) hiatus from D&D. (Though he was in th...

Re: Obscure Bible Question

Great question. Looking in my Bible dictionary, it says they were "an Antinomian sect in Asia Minor that claimed license for sensual sin." So they seemed to have believed that sensual sins were a-ok. Not necessarily 'sexual' but 'sensual.' What that means is they were all about physical pleasure, wh...

Re: The Impact of Interstellar Aliens

Too true. Guess that is another reason to do our best to study now so that should such an event occur we can provide comfort for those who find the event faith-shaking.
This is a really great point.

Re: The Impact of Interstellar Aliens

I think you're right about Heavenly Father, which is why I'm convinced that if there are other populated worlds, He's got a plan for them as well. I think the question of whether there's such a dilemma would probably vary wildly between denominations and even between individuals. I think for many of...
