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...
Hello, not really a Christian or anything but just stopping by to learn stuff.
Hope you don't mind :3
All are welcome here. :)
Come on Evan, let it goooooooo
Theological scenario: I'm allergic to gluten, that makes it difficult to receive the Eucharist. My aunt says that I'm just not believing hard enough, that if I truly believed, the gluten in the Eucharist would not bother me.
Theological question: If I had more faith, would the gluten in the Eucharist have no effect or still bother me?
I'm eager to hear you opinions.
No it will still harm you, please don't eat ANYTHING you are allergic just because someone says you should be able to if you have faith
The whole rattlesnake venom thing kinda proves that
sorry matt for postin in your group- know I said I would refrain when possible, but I thought this was important, I knew someone who had something similar happen- they were told that if they had enough faith they would be cured of a peanut allergy, it almost killed them
then they were shunned for going to the hospital and for not having enough faith (very strict sect)
so please don't eat anything you are allergic to, its biological not theological.
Don't worry, I believe that the Eucharist is the body of Christ in spirit, but I don't believe that, excuse the phrase, "That Jesus goes through my intestines."
I get a special Eucharist that's okay for me to have. So all's well, Except my aunt kinda still thinks I'm a heathen at the moment, but it doesn't matter much. :) Still, it's a good conversation topic.
Thanks for the caring though.

It's fine mate. And you are correct, God never intended for anyone to harm themselves over their Faith, so eating something he's allergic to is just foolish.
Good to hear ya get an alternative... a shame about your Aunt though. She must be an older lady to have that "Faith can save you from anything so don't worry about eating something you are allergic to" mentality.
Y'all must be from a pretty strict sect eh?
She's not old, she's just extreme. :)
Not exactly, My family is Catholic but has been in every Christian religion from Anglicans to Protestants, (Except Orthodox.) I'm however a "Ortholic" as I like to put it.
Previously on here I said that I was a Catholic, true, but not the whole truth. I believe that the Schism between the west and east Church split them not only in name but also in spirit. That the true Church that God would want is in-between the two.
So I'd perfectly happy to go to a Orthodox Church because from my perspective, Orthodox Christians are just as right as Catholics
