If Jesus is “God” how could there have been . . .?

If Jesus is “God” how could there have been . . .?
Serious question here –

The Bible says, “Jesus came from Galilee to John to be baptized by him in the Jordan River.” Matt 3:13 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, we saw the heavens splitting apart and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And in Mark 1:11, we know a “voice” came from heaven: “You are my one dear Son; in you I take great delight.” If Jesus is “God” how could there have been a audible voice from heaven, heard by all that were present while Jesus is being baptized by John the Baptist?

Do not read antagonistic inflection into my question. II seek greater understanding how God’s voice can be audibly heard (by whom?) by those at the Jordon river. I will be doing a study on this question: If Jesus is “God” how could there have been a audible voice from heaven, heard by all that were present while Jesus is being baptized by John the Baptist.

Who can explain to me, who’s voice from the sky was it (that was heard), if Jesus is God (the man is standing in the Jordon) at the same time. This suggests God can be in Heaven and simultaneously on the Earth at the same time. And – be heard audibly. Which means God’s audibly voice can be heard by humans. Therefore, it is logical we (us humans) can hear the audible voice of God, now. Everyday, or all the time hear God‘s audible voice. What’s that like?

Your assistance is appreciated.
Here is a second example of a non-believer that heard the audible voice of God from the sky. I talking about Saul as he going along, approaching Damascus we read in Acts 9:3-4, “suddenly a light from heaven flashed around“ Saul. And he fell to the ground and “heard a voice” saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” Saul was a non-believer, blind of God’s true existence. I would love to ask Saul (now Paul) what its like to hear God’s voice for the first time.

Are there any kind Scotsmen or Scotswomen who could read my History essay and tell me what to add? :)?
I’m an American college undergraduate (a senior), and I’m in an English Civil War graduate-level History course, and I need a bit of help on my term paper 🙂

The title of the essay is “Development of the Scottish Revolution to the Start of the First Bishop’s War”, and I have to add about five more pages of material to this essay (I have 15 pages down currently). Anyway, the essay is here:

What other events or people could I mention in this essay?
The essay itself can’t run into details of the First Bishops War itself…just everything that led up to that point.
In other words, what else can I mention?

Thank you very much!!!

Do you really think this is the appropriate category for critique requests for your degree? This is my understanding of events.

After 11 years without a Parliament, in which Charles dragged up old laws to raise money and built up the navy to protect his people, England became prosperous again through trade and science and its people became cultured and more literate. Charles initiated the draining of the fens, the Royal Mail postal service, and improved roads and laws to help the poor.

In 1636, Charles introduced a new prayer book for Scotland, with the aim of bringing it more in line with the English version. The new book was basically the English Prayer Book and was introduced, so the front page said, through Royal Prerogative. The Scots saw it as Catholic and Popish, due to the detailed and fine writing and beautiful decoration.

It was first used in 1637 at St Giles’s Cathedral where it caused an uproar and people bellowed that the Mass was amongst them. A stool was thrown at the minister reading it and in 1638, the whole nation had united to refuse this book. They signed a national covenant, which bound them all to their true and reformed religion, and not to the new prayer book.

The Scots abolished the Bishops that James I had managed to get them to accept, and reverted to full blown Presbyterianism. Charles prepared for war with Scotland to impose religious conformity and in 1639, arrived in York with 18,000 foot and 3000 horsemen. His good housekeeping over ten years had improved finances, though these troops were raw, untrained and not adequately armed and commanded.

The Scots were backed by the immense fire of religious fervour and were well trained, being 22,000 foot and 500 horsemen.

Charles’s men advanced to meet the Scots, but on seeing the numbers and conditions, retreated without fighting, while the Scots sent peace negotiators to the King.

The King’s money was now spent and he was preparing for another war with the Scots who refused to budge on their full Presbyterianism. He summoned a Parliament at Strafford’s insistence in 1640 and Charles showed them a letter from the Scots appealing for French Catholic aid, addressing the French King as their Sovereign. But Parliament was not interested.

They began drawing up a declaration of woes of the last 11 years and Charles even agreed to give up the ancient Ship Money he had been levying without their consent, in exchange for subsidies, but to no avail. As Charles said, he swore that all the profit from Ship Money had gone to the Royal Navy for protection against pirates and provided the proof.

The House of Lords sympathised, but Parliament continued debating and Charles reluctantly dissolved it.

The Scots, meanwhile, were pushing for the Covenant to be extended to England in their own act of forced conformity and wanted Archbishop Laud (the Archbishop of Canterbury) and the Earl of Strafford (who led the forces of Northern England) to be brought to justice. The 25,000 Scots prepared to cross the Tweed and Charles again left for York to defend England with his own devices and no aid from Parliament.

A small battle occurred at Newburn Ford where the English cavalry were scattered and Charles received a petition demanding a Parliament and punishment for the King’s advisors. In response, Charles made the Earl of Strafford a Knight of the Garter, the highest honour in the land. This reinforced his insistenced that he decided who his ministers were and whether they should stay or go.

But time was running out, money was spent again and the English army did not have the heart to fight and it dwindled away. Charles was forced to summon another Parliament in 1640.

Jew people; If there is no hell, what keeps you from “sinning”?

Jew people; If there is no hell, what keeps you from “sinning”?
I am not saying you can’t be moral without religion, but in Judaism there are some ridiculous rules you have to follow. Like not eating bacon, not lusting, or not doing various things on the Sabbath, or not shaving your hairy temples…..(Christians are suppose to follow these too, but they mostly seem like a lazy lot….)

What keeps you from not doing these things if there is no fear of eternal suffering?
I’m not stereotyping Jew people am I? Is not what I say correct?
I don’t believe in hell. I am simply asking what is the “punishment” for sinning if there isn’t a hell. I don’t see a reason to follow those rules I listed if there is no punishment for them. Because I see no logical reason as to why they are “Bad” in the first place.
Like I said, I am not talking about killing or stealing. But these weird “sins” mentioned above.

Are there any people who think that Christianity is a satanic cult?
I know about Christians that think that religions like Islam and even the branch of Catholicism are satanic cults. But are there any other people like Muslims or Jews that think Christianity is a simple satanic cult that leads to hell? I don’t think any religion (that I know of) is satanic (except ones that explicitly say so0, but this is just a question.

Note to atheists: You obviously don’t believe in Satan so you don’t need to add your own views.

Was there any opposition towards Eleanor Roosevelt?

Was there any opposition towards Eleanor Roosevelt?
Eleanor is considered an amazing leader in history, but were there any that opposed her? and for what reasons?

Best answer:

Answer by Brian A
In July 1949, Eleanor Roosevelt had a public disagreement with Francis Joseph Spellman, the Catholic Archbishop of New York, which was characterized as “a battle still remembered for its vehemence and hostility”. In her columns, Roosevelt had attacked proposals for federal funding of certain nonreligious activities at parochial schools, such as bus transportation for students. Spellman cited the Supreme Court’s decision which upheld such provisions, accusing her of anti-Catholicism. Most Democrats rallied behind Roosevelt, and Spellman eventually met with her at her Hyde Park home to quell the dispute. However, Roosevelt maintained her belief that Catholic schools should not receive federal aid, evidently heeding the writings of secularists such as Paul Blanshard. Privately, Roosevelt said that if the Catholic Church gained school aid, “Once that is done they control the schools, or at least a great part of them.”

During the Spanish Civil War, Eleanor Roosevelt favored the republican Loyalists against General Francisco Franco’s Nationalists; after 1945, she opposed normalizing relations with Spain. She told Spellman bluntly that “I cannot however say that in European countries the control by the Roman Catholic Church of great areas of land has always led to happiness for the people of those countries.” Her son Elliott Roosevelt suggested that her “reservations about Catholicism” were rooted in her husband’s sexual affairs with Lucy Mercer and Missy LeHand, who were both Catholics.

Roosevelt’s defenders, such as biographer Joseph P. Lash, deny that she was anti-Catholic, citing her public support of Al Smith, a Catholic, in the 1928 presidential campaign and her statement to a New York Times reporter that year quoting her uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt, in expressing “the hope to see the day when a Catholic or a Jew would become president” (The New York Times, January 25, 1928)

Where I live there have been all sorts of groups and people who hate the federal government?

Where I live there have been all sorts of groups and people who hate the federal government?
most of them are religious groups, or white supremacist groups, militia people, who hate the government because they think it is black and Jewish controlled. There was another group the leader was Jewish but it was a Pentacostal Christian group, and they hate the federal government because they thought it was run by Catholics, who they viewed as “the antichrist” (you cant make this sh!t up. Then there are black groups who hate the government for other reasons, there are left wing groups who hate the government because of wars and everything. Are there any groups that actually like the government that you know of?
