Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24799796 Truth is absolute Quoting: flashlight
My reponse was to your claim that Christianity doesn´t involve critical thinking, and you claimed that Koffee is pushing religion- but what she represents is the spirit of Christ, which is truth. So, what is it then? An interesting proposal or truth? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24799796
I think that faith is either blind obedience or blindly led obedience.
Once you empty/deprogram yourself you're on a more solid foundation to exercise critical thinking.
Many people have different notions of "spirit of Christ." And it's not always truth.
or it is relativism.
A relationship with Jesus Christ is a personal experience
, but it not something "made up" because the person of Jesus Christ is not made up. Obedience is a result of recognizing this truth
, that God himself entered into world history to reconcile the human race, to destroy sin (not wrong doing, but wrong being) and restore our relationship with the Creator. No other explanation for the reason we exist is more coherent than that which Jesus represents to the world.
Who is Jesus Christ to you?
Remember for the times ahead if you disagree now, receiving Jesus Christ into your person in the consecrated
host is a very personal experience. It's God's desire.
Sorry, this sounds like that "faith alone" nonsense again. "Faith Alone" is heresy that came from Martin Luther's head not God.
Justification comes by faith and works, making a decision
to do the will of God. Obedience isn't robotic, a result
of faith alone.
You decide every moment to follow God or not with the
help of His grace. Stay in the state of grace through
repentance, Confession and prayer and God's grace will
be present in your soul. The 7 Sacraments are source of
God wants you to freely choose Him, faith helps, it doesn't
make you do anything.
