|Religion / Re: Spirituality: Who E Don EPP? by PastorAIO: 2:29pm On Oct 21|
Oga, I didn't ask you the quality of the question, whether it was a good question or not, neither did I ask you if you'd asked the question before.
I asked in direct response to your claim that just as a car carries a person so does a body carry a person.
Your other vague wishy washy notion of being lightly attached to some wishy washy thing such as mind or soul or whatever does not tally with your definite statement that
"A car carries a person in the same way as a body carries a person."
A person in a car is not 'lightly attached' to the car.

(ii) In Sawaimadhopur, after some time, there came a Nazim named – “Safaruddin”. He was suffering from a serious disease and he was unable to cure from that disease even after a long treatment. When he learned about the miracles of Chamatkarji, he also came there to visit. He decided that if he gets cured from the disease, he will construct umbrellas on all the four corners of the temple. Due to the miracles of Chamatkarji, with in a short period. Nazim Safaruddin became free from that terrible disease and felt healthy. Then according to the decision he constructed attractive artistic umbrellas on all the four corners of the temple, these are still enhancing the beauty of the temple. So many times such miracles have taken place here still today many types of miracles are seen by devotees here. Peoples come here to materialize their desires and to get rid from worldly troubles / problems.http://jainteerth.com/rajasthan-jain-teerth/shri-digambar-jain-atishaya-kshetra-chamatkarji/
On Shrisangha’s request Acharya Dharmaghoshsuri composed Samudra stotra. Once he recited it at the seashore in Saurashtra and a miracle took place. Suddenly a huge tide brought a huge heap of jewels ashore at the feet of Acharya Dharmaghoshsuri and then receded.http://ejainism.com/dharmaghoshsuri.html
I hope you are aware and appreciate that I'm not tasking you for basing your belief in a religion on how ridiculously fabulous it's claims are, but merely pointing out to you that you do not have the monopoly on ridiculous fables. And Instantaneous ones at that.

And what scale is that exactly? I didn't know that there were scales for measuring impossible deeds. Are you suggesting that there are degrees of impossibility?
So you don't know about Jains but you are ready to conclude that there is no religion as hard to practice as christianity therefore Christianity must be the truth.

A car carries a person either in the drivers' seat or one of the passenger seats, or if you like in the boot.
Which part of the human body carries a person?
|Religion / Re: Seun, Please Come In! I've Gist For You. by PastorAIO: 6:42pm On Oct 20|
There are miracles in Jainism too. You'll be very hard pressed to find a religion without miracles.
What do Christians proscribe that Jains do not.
|Religion / Re: Seun, Please Come In! I've Gist For You. by PastorAIO: 5:49pm On Oct 20|
So christianity is hard therefore it is true. Is that your reasoning?
Then what do you want to call Jainism. Super Real Deal?

Look at a car. Look am well well. Now tell me. Do you know the car at once? How fast can it move? What is the mileage on it? What is the boot's capacity? How smooth is the steering wheel?
What? You can't tell these things just by looking at the car at first glance? Is it not therefore obvious and ineluctable and evident ..( and all other such grammar and jedijedi vocabulary you like to throw in at this point) that the car is in fact invisible.

Oga Mark! I hail o! Long time.
Guess What? I found a copy of In The Light Of Truth. I've started reading it. But small small. I'm reading so many other book as well at present.
I found a metaphor I liked. About a tree at the foot of the mountain of spirituality, and some people have climbed that tree (false religions) and believe that they are advancing spiritually but they are totally unaware of the mountain. Until they fall from the tree before they can realise their error and begin the proper ascent of the mountain.
Recently on NL my motive has been to give those trees a good shake, or even if possible to chop the entire tree down. Lol. For this reason many have concluded that I'm an atheist, but I don't care. I even enjoy it.
Anyway, I just dey hail you.

Na so! They always try to exercise some minute intelligence at the start but once they realise that logic does not serve them they dive fully into unabashed imbecility.
|Religion / Re: What Were The Inquisitions? by PastorAIO: 10:19am On Oct 19|
True, they lacked the political authority to punish. I think this was true of Jews too though, especially in the diaspora. In Judea I think they Romans gave them some authority to carry out a few punishments of their own, but mostly legal correction was done through the Roman civil system.
|Religion / Re: What Were The Inquisitions? by PastorAIO: 9:15am On Oct 19|
The early christians of the first century were Jews and so would have followed the mosaic laws. There was friction due to the teachings of Paul on dietary concerns and such but first century christians still went to synagogue and practiced judaism.

Correct guy. I see that you've backed up what you are saying with bible passages. I want to see if the OP can produce one bible passage to support the position he is going to proclaim.
|Religion / Re: What Is The Difference Between Iniquity, Sin, And Transgression? by PastorAIO: 9:01am On Oct 19|
They've started again. The inventors of orishirishi doctrines. This time based on a quirk of the Englisn language.
English is full of synonyms due to it's history. Any word can easily be substituted for about 5 or 6 others.
English was original a Germanic language. Then in 1066 the Normans (from France) conquered England and imposed their French and Latin language on the Germanic peoples of England. Although English was still spoken on the streets the language of Court was French.
So many French and Latin words eventually infiltrated the English language, enriching it.
Then the English became traders and started building empires all over the world and everywhere they when they absorbed influences into their language from the people they came into contact with. This added more words.
Then the english became great inventors and explorers. Whenever they invented something or discovered something they would give it a name based on some Ancient greek word or latin word. e.g. Tele Vision. Tele means 'remote' or 'far' in ancient greek.
Also back in the day, the Vikings also invaded England and settled on the eastern coast of England. They too brought their language.
There is no language in this world as rich as English for have so many different words for the same thing.

Thank you sir.

What about if the act of 'paying undue attention' to something is not autonomous, but rather something that the subject cannot help doing?
Like in a neurosis.

|Religion / Re: Blasphemy Against The Holy Spirit. by PastorAIO: 10:51am On Oct 16|
The passage that talks about it explains the reason for the sin. 'Because they said he has an unclean spirit'.
The way this passage was explained to me was as follows.
The process for forgiveness of sins is as follows. First, one recognises the sin. Secondly, one is remorseful and repents from the sin. Thirdly, the sin is forgiven when forgiveness is prayed for. There are other factors but those are the main pertinent points for understanding this passage.
Since it is important that first someone ought to be able to recognise sin as sin before the process can even start then what hope does someone have if that person has his moral compass so distorted that he cannot recognise the difference between Good and Evil again.
If someone is going around doing good things, healing people and helping the poor, casting out demons, and what you see when you observe this is evil, the work of the devil then you cannot even fulfill the first stage of the process. You are incapable of recognising Good from Evil. You see good things and you're calling it the work of the devil. You see evil things and you are calling it the work of God. You are a non-starter!! You've failed before you can even start.
The sin of being unable to recognise the Good from the Evil around is a sin that cannot be forgiven since forgiveness requires repentance.
Some people are doing evil and even praising God for it. Nigeria is full of them. It is usually caused by partisanship. Instead of recognising evil for what it is they will excuse it if it is being done in their church, or by their pastor. Meanwhile if they see someone they oppose doing good they will never recognise it but will rather condemn it as the devil's work.
This is the sin against the Holy Spirit. No Moral Compass.

|Religion / Re: How Biblical Is Seed Sowing? by PastorAIO: 10:35am On Oct 16|
Seed sowing is agricultural. It works if you're a farmer. I don't know about other disciplines though.
|Religion / Re: The Supposedly Wisdom Of Solomon by PastorAIO: 10:33am On Oct 16|
From all kinds of sources. Some I'm told directly by an informant. Some I read in books. Some I see with my own eyes. Some I experience myself. I'm open to all kinds of sources.
However what does your question have to do with my request for you to share your archaeological evidences with us?
I think I've been here with you before. You do not actually have any sources so instead of answering the questions you respond with another question that is totally irrelevant. If that is the case, please just stop here, and don't respond to this post.
|Religion / Re: The Supposedly Wisdom Of Solomon by PastorAIO: 9:12am On Oct 16|
They are wise words indeed. The person, whoever, who said them must be wise indeed.
|Religion / Re: The Supposedly Wisdom Of Solomon by PastorAIO: 9:10am On Oct 16|
Please share. Where can we find the archaeological evidence?

It addresses that gimmick that landlords use to try to get troublesome tenants out of their house.

I can't believe that no one commented on my video that I posted. It answers all the questions on this thread.

I hadn't even heard of River Ethiope. I've just googled it. It seems to be located amongst the Delta ibos and the call it Onoku which I presume is related to Olokun. Very fascinating river.
