  1. Umm... this battery weighs more like 50+lbs. and its a hazardous material. If UPS will ship it, I wouldnt trust their handling even on a tough dry cell battery. I would recommend local only. As a side note, return it to autozone and tell them that it doesnt accomodate your needs, they are pretty liberal on their returns. (worked with AZ for 4 years)
  2. Our faith is the evidence in things unseen. And whether you like it or not Christians will always be here some quietly and some not... offering to share our experiences and relationship with our savior. Read and believe or disbelieve. God gave you the choice, its called free will.
  3. Aye this thread could infact, go on til Rapture. Some do not recieve te gospel well, and it can be offensive to some. But I do believe that God reveals himself to all of us at one time or many in our lives, and some will either recieve him and some will reject him. It is choice. that choice is yours alone. For me there is no "comission check" gained for telling others about Christ. No quotas. No personal gain for me whatsoever. Only glory in his name. And the love for all of my brothers and sisters. In Romans chapter 2 it says "God leads to repentance thru love". Not punishment, or intim
  4. "hmm.. then why is a few cells considered life when it comes to abortion? if a few cells is considered life, should not sperm be considered life? it has potential too.. either way, all life share very similar cellular metabolic pathways, such as cell division, cell replication.. there are numerous examples that bridge various families in the biological kingdom, even if we can't find our own missing link." A single celled organism floating around in the ocean is far from a zygote or a sperm, yes they are both made up of cells but are not the "same". The bible even says its better for a mans s
  5. "Believers' lives are not any diffirent from those of non believers." You are mistaken I know this for fact. I am witness to the blessings in my own life each and every day. Unless you dont believe in me either. "You can credit a whole bunch of things to an invisible force. If I flip a coin and it lands where i guessed it would I can credit this to God. Or I could realise there was a 1 in 2 chance. Your pick." If a loved one in your family was (hypothedically of course) stricken with a terminal malady of some sort and no doctors were able to diagnose it, let alone treat it, who would you turn
  6. "Ya're free to believe whatever you like and everyone should respect that Just dont try to act like you're right and we're wrong because fact of the matter have absolutely nothing to base yourself on." Im not "trying to act like I'm right". I am simply sharing Gods love with anyone who has ears. Believe or not, it's your decision, thats why you have free will. And then you talk about fact on my basis for belief... on whos authority do you command such knowledge? The proof is in the pudding, so to speak. Find a believer, not just a christian, and ask them what God has done
  7. 1."Of course it appears to me that the bottom line of your story is people themselves need things to believe/have faith in, and I agree. Of course this whole belief in a higher power is also something that it needed by some people, and not by others, and those "others" are not off any worse because of it at all. It all depends on your personal needs. And when you come as far as that, take into account there is no direct or indirect evidence of a higher power....just people needing can see where i'm going with this" ...yet another refrenece to people being "weak". Everyone,
  8. The "wager" quote is something to get the wheels turning in peoples heads, or to get them to relate to and talk about. It is similar to the questions of "Do you belive in good and evil?","Do you believe in a heaven or a hell?" "Do you believe in God and the Devil?" or "If you died right now would you go to heaven or hell? Why?" These are some of the ways to initiate a conversation to possibly share your testimony and Jesus with someone. My faith is not based on "odds" It is a personal relationship with Jesus.
  9. I know this quote is a little out context of your paragraph... but the same can be said for both sides... All a believer can do is share with you, and pray for god to work in your life, you make up your mind after that. As was already said," If I'm wrong I'ved lost a lifetime, and if you are wrong you will have lost an eternity." And remember, it isn't just the bible you refrence to for your evidence. Look at a believer... someone who has truely accepted and given all control over to jesus. His/her testimony will be proof. The deeds and blessings god has done in their life is evidence. I adm
  10. Agreed. I have to be honest, I thought this discussion was going to be... well not so pretty. But I want you all to know that I appreciate the respect that is being shown between the different members. Topics like this show that we truly have intelligent and insightful people in this forum(Believers and non-believers). Aside from my horrible spelling that is... :P
  11. "There isn't much you can say that will make me believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God" Does this mean if we say the right thing then you will believe? Jesus refused to prove himself to the Pharasies when they demanded for him to prove he was the messiah. And somehow they failed to see all the people he healed and ministered too. Until it was too late. When jesus died on the cross the veil was torn into and It was said "Truely this was the Son of God". I beg you not to wait, dont put this off... at least open your mind and read some scripture and let him talk to you. One day you an
  12. I will try ask my Pastor if there is other scripture on it on sunday, but in the meantime I found this answer at Question: "Does the Bible condone slavery?" Answer: The Bible does not specifically condemn the practice of slavery. It gives instructions on how slaves should be treated (Deuteronomy 15:12-15; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 4:1), but does not outlaw the practice altogether. Many see this as the Bible condoning all forms of slavery. What many people don't understand is that slavery in the Bible times is completely different from the slavery that was practiced in
  13. Sorry I dont have my bible with me so i cant site the verse numbers for these... "Verily, I say unto you, lest a man be born again he shall not see the kingdom of heaven" "I am the way, the truth, and the light. No one comes to the father except thru me" You must understand this...All of us deserve hell and damnation for our sins...all but one. Jesus was without sin and he has taken the blame for our transgressions. That is compassion, love and grace. I feel the peace that comes with this... its hard to describe... but some things mean more to me now and some mean much less. For instance
  14. John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." Ex 20:12 " Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee." Ex 20:13 "Thou shalt not kill." Ex 20:14 "Thou shalt not commit adultery." Ex 20:15 "Thou shalt not steal." Ex 20:16 "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." Yea that stuff is sooo ignorant...
  15. Have at it (proving your point that is) Yes the germans were bad but the japanese killed an estimated 380,000 in 3 weeks in NanKing. Some historians said that the deathtoll has been estimated at 21-28 million people. Let that sink in a moment... thats probably 10% of the population of the entire USA at that time. They made children murder their own parents and fathers rape their daughters. I do not discredit the Hollocaust by any amount and I feel for the survivors and the people lost... but germany has made reperations to the jews... Japan has yet to even acknowledge much apologize or make
