    This or that

    Tree. Ceiling or Floor?
  2. I was quite upset . I was reading a testimony of a man who was diagnosed with AIDs, and his testimony claimed that God healed his AIDs, not by medicinal means, but by miraculous means. Responses to the testimony were people doubting this miracle and trying to conjure some other explanation. Why do we doubt the power of God? God performed miraculous events throughout the Bible, so why not now? Anyway, that particular subject sparked an idea within me to create a debate to see whether beliefs of charismatic churches have a basis in Scripture or whether its just plain craziness. Such beliefs include: Baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing, prophecy, miracles, visions and speaking in tongues. (This is a large topic, so it could spread over several debates :-P ). I'll provide a little viewpoint to kick off the debate... This debate has impacted me personally. I used to attend a traditional church that taught such things to be crazy, and that God's purpose for such things was for the early Church to be established, so that now the Church is established, they are now not needed. When I attended with the Church of Christ, that teaching never seemed to make sense to me, but I never really investigated such issues. Well, I started university and was not at all bothered about my faith. One of my close friends invited me to a local church, which could be considered as charismatic. I tried it out and thought it was brilliant! I now attend regularly, and since I have done, my faith has grown signficantly! Furthermore, I have been baptised in the Holy Spirit, can now speak in tongues, and have had a prophetic word given to me. I can see no plausible explanation in Scripture for such things to have "vanished" or to be considered "crazy". To me, it just doesn't make sense. If you have any disagreements, I will provide a Scriptural basis. (I could be here all day ). Anyway, lets go. Enjoy the debate . This could become a controversial and personal debate, so if you have any disagreements, please provide a Scriptural basis for your viewpoint. Also, lets not insult each other. God bless, Dan

    The Shack

    "The Shack". A popular, yet controversial, book that has been read by many Christians. It has received widespread praise for being a landmark novel and for being theologically accurate. However, critics have abhorred the story's theological content claiming it to be heretic. On the other hand, other people just claim it to be fictional and that it should be just left at that. So, what do you think? Accurate? Fictional? Or Heretic? (I noticed that in another thread there was a debate ensuing, so I thought it would be adequate to debate about it here :-) . However, please keep things civil and not get personal or disrespectful).

    Coffee Shop Quiz!

    I do like Starbucks, but there is a chain of coffee shops in the UK that has caught my eye recently - Cafe Nero. I had a wonderful banana-flavoured thing there in London the other day (I can't remember its name :-/ ), so I may be checking that out more.

    I wear glasses temporarily. The only things I need them for is looking at a board far away and driving. If I forget them, then there could be chaos on the roads :-P ...
