(NOTE: This is not a group for the bashing, belittling, or debunking of other people's beliefs).
Peace be with you.
Discussing the theory of evolution and Christianity and why the two do not conflict.
A story, a moral, a game, and a question no one wants to answer.
An article about why atheism isn't a logical viewpoint and why I'm Christian.
We Christian brothers and sisters need to shape up.
This article contains a very interesting debate between evolutionist and creationist beliefs and is meant as support and encouragement for Christians...
Can everyone else see my news articles or is it just me?

Howdy. Nice seeing people are interested in the group. :)
Ah! Wish I was reading The Bible when I was in school:
2 Ki 18:27 "But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own **** with you?"
**** is actually a word in The King James version of The Bible which was actually the best literature for the English language. It has contributed 257 idioms to English, more than any other single source, including Shakespeare and basically is the rock for the English language shall we say.
We study Shakespeare at school but he studied The Bible to learn English. I think that means The Bible should be studied at school as well when people are studying English.
In any case. If only I had read The King James Bible back at school. I would have been able to say the word **** and justify the word because it's in The Bible. **** is a much better word than pee or wee and a truly better word than urinate. Saying "I'm going to the toilet" sounds too disgusting for me and saying "I'm going to wee wee" sounds too childish. Urinate just sounds wrong, especially when the word **** was around before that word as the correct term.
You know. I'm making a mod for Neverwinter Nights called The Mystic Journey. It's about an ordinary man called Armon who is trying to live a normal life but is chosen by God for something greater.
Armon is hailed as a Saint later on in the series because he had such great love for God and justice and achieved a great goal. His story is basically about how humans can be good but also have flaws - his being that he - despite being a hero - has great anger at evil and having great amounts of anger isn't good. He also questions why God has chosen him - granting him immortality, when all he wants is a normal life - and not Ubadah who would willingly serve God for all eternity in the universe.
The final tale will allow you to develop Armon into either a fallen angel type character (he doesn't hate God but he refuses to obey him but still ends up doing so, despite not wanting to, this denial, refusal and anger attracts a demon to Armon which can change the course of the story for the worse) or allow him to live up to the title people have given to him - Saint.
The game also deals with The Church. Armon believes one doesn't need to go to church and that they only need to listen to God and obey him and that The Church is based on the opinions on man and have too much power. Whereas Ubadah (another playable character) is a devout church goer and believes The Church is of God.
Theology also comes into the game. Subjects like why does God allow evil in the world come up and subjects like why did God create people come up.
Several tales have been released thus far but I'm currently reworking on them, adding more quests, filling areas and polishing them based on feedback. I will then be releasing a revamped edition of all the tales in one zip file.
So if any of you have Neverwinter Nights, watch out for this revamped edition which I hope to have released next week (or the week after).
You can read the story of The Mystic Journey from here, it's not perfect but it gets the point across:
