What are some Bible verses about non believers?
WHEN Jehovah( God) speaks, those who are wise listen with great respect and respond to his words. Everything that Jehovah says is for our benefit, and he is keenly interested in our welfare. For example, how heartwarming it is to consider the way Jehovah addressed his ancient covenant people: "O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments!" (Isaiah 48:18) The proven value of God's teachings should move us to listen to him and follow his guidance. The record of fulfilled prophecy dispels any doubt about Jehovah's determination to fulfill his promises. There is another vital principle that people must bear in mind regarding Jehovah's saving deeds. The righteously inclined may suffer because of their sins, but they will not be destroyed. It is different, though, for the unrighteous. "'There is no peace,' Jehovah has said, 'for the wicked ones.'" (Isaiah 48:22) Unrepentant sinners will not receive the peace that God has reserved for those who love him. Acts of salvation are not intended for the stubbornly wicked or the unbelieving. Such acts are only for those who have faith. Titus 1:15, 16; states: "All things are clean to clean [persons]. But to [persons] defiled and faithless nothing is clean, but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. 16 They publicly declare they know God, but they disown him by their works, because they are detestable and disobedient and not approved for good work of any sort". Revelation 22:14, 15 assures us peace from God is not the possession of the wicked. " Happy are those who wash their robes, that the authority [to go] to the trees of life may be theirs and that they may gain entrance into the city by its gates. 15 Outside are the dogs and those who practice spiritism and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone liking and carrying on a lie." "He has told you, O earthling man, what is good. And what is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?" - MICAH 6:8. Of course, not just anybody can walk with Jehovah. This privilege is reserved for those who 'have met him by appointment,' so to speak. (Amos 3:3) How so? By having made an unreserved dedication to Jehovah and symbolized this by water baptism. So, what does Micah 6:8 mean for these individuals? To begin with, there is the requirement to "exercise justice." To "exercise justice" basically means to do what is right, what is required of us by God. This means that we must fulfill our obligations, the chief one being to give Jehovah exclusive devotion. Jehovah does not want and will not use as his fellow workers any individuals who are wicked. This is made clear at Psalm 50:16-18, where we read: "But to the wicked one God will have to say: 'What right do you have to enumerate my regulations, and that you may bear my covenant in your mouth? Why, you-you have hated discipline, and you keep throwing my words behind you. Whenever you saw a thief, you were even pleased with him; and your sharing was with adulterers.' How the lot of the wicked differs from that of the righteous! Wicked ones may appear to prosper materially for a time, but they are not prospering spiritually. This is evident from the psalmist's further words: "The wicked are not like that, but are like the chaff that the wind drives away. That is why the wicked ones will not stand up in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of righteous ones." (Psalm 1:4, 5) Note that the psalmist says, "the wicked are not like that." He means that they are not like godly people. The wicked are not "rich toward God." Hence, they have no more security and stability than does chaff, the thin covering on kernels of grain. After grain was harvested in ancient times, it was taken to a threshing floor, a flat area generally on high ground. There sledges with sharp stone or iron teeth on their underside were pulled over the grain by animals to break the stalks into pieces and loosen the kernels from the chaff. Next, a winnowing shovel was used to pick up the whole mixture and toss it into the air against the wind. (Isaiah 30:24) The kernels fell back onto the threshing floor, while the breeze carried the straw off to the side and blew the chaff away. (Ruth 3:2) After the grain was passed through a sieve to remove pebbles and the like, it was ready for storage or grinding. (Luke 22:31) But the chaff was gone. Just as the kernels of grain dropped to the ground and were preserved while the chaff was blown away, so the righteous will remain and the wicked will be removed. Surely, though, we are happy that such evildoers will soon be gone forever. With them out of the way, people who take delight in Jehovah's law will be greatly blessed. Indeed, obedient humans will eventually receive God's gift of everlasting life. "And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be.... Psalm 37:10

Ephesians 5: 22-33 This is about good husbands and wives. 22. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24. Therefore as the church is subject unto Ch…rist, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing. 25. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26. That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27. That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband. ( Full Answer )

All of us are interested in people, so we sometimes say good, up-building things about others, which is fine if what we say is true and does not cause harm. Sometimes, though, the talk turns to gossip â¦ which is "idle talk, not always true, about other people and their affairs." And more ofte…n then not, gossip becomes slander â¦ "a false report meant to do harm to the good name and reputation of another." This happens when we probe into personal, private affairs, or when we raise questions about motives or cast doubts or plant suspicions about others. This type of gossip is most often malicious, often jaded and exaggerated, not always true and can injure a person severely. It most often comes from a place of ignorance. The Bible says A LOT about this type of gossip, because it can do SO much damage. For example: **Of gossipers in Jesus' day it saysâ¦ " At the same time they also learn to be unoccupied, gadding about to the houses; yes, not only unoccupied, but also gossipers and meddlers in other people's affairs, talking of things they ought not." (1 Timothy 5:13) **At 1 Peter 4:15 the bible puts gossip in the same category as thievery and murder. **Matthew 12:33-34 says " For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks..." So, a person who purposely hurts others verbally is displaying a bad heart, and God will " give to each one according to his ways... "(Jeremiah 17:9+10) Good council against gossip is given at : (Proverbs 26:20-26) " Where there is no wood the fire goes out, and where there is no slanderer contention grows still. As charcoal for the embers and wood for the fire, so is a contentious man for causing a quarrel to glow. The words of a slanderer are like things to be swallowed greedily, which do go down into the innermost parts of the belly. As a silver glazing overlaid upon a fragment of earthenware are fervent lips along with a bad heart. With his lips the hater makes himself unrecognizable, but inside of him he puts deception. Although he makes his voice gracious, do not believe in him, for there are seven detestable things in his heart. Hatred is covered over by deceit. . . . " (Proverbs 16:27-28) " A good-for-nothing man is digging up what is bad, and upon his lips there is, as it were, a scorching fire. A man of intrigues keeps sending forth contention, and a slanderer is separating those familiar with one another." (Psalm 64:2-4) "...May you conceal me from the confidential talk of evildoers, From the tumult of practicers of hurtfulness, Who have sharpened their tongue just like a sword, Who have aimed their arrow, bitter speech, To shoot from concealed places at someone blamelessâ¦" (2 Thessalonians 3:11) " For we hear certain ones are walking disorderly among YOUâ¦ meddling with what does not concern them. ." Gossip is truly hateful and truly UNChristian. Instead of hurting others with gossip, Christians are told to LOVE others, as Jesus loved them. This is not a suggestion; it's a command. (1 Peter 4:8) " Above all things, have intense love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins." (Matthew 19:19) "... You must love your neighbor as yourself." (1 John 4:20) " If anyone makes the statement: "I love God," and yet is hating his brother, he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot be loving God, whom he has not seenâ¦" (Matthew 7:1-5) "Stop judging that YOU may not be judged; for with what judgment YOU are judging, YOU will be judged; and with the measure that YOU are measuring out, they will measure out to YOU. Why, then, do you look at the straw in your brother's eye, but do not consider the rafter in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Allow me to extract the straw from your eye'; when, look! a rafter is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First extract the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to extract the straw from your brother's eye." (Proverbs 17:17) " A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress." (1 Thessalonians 4:11) " â¦ make it YOUR aim to live quietly and to mind YOUR own business.." The scriptures tell us to think before we speak, since our words can be a powerful source of good AND bad. ( PROVERBS 10:19 ) " In the abundance of words there does not fail to be transgression, but the one keeping his lips in check is acting discreetly." (James 3:5) " So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! " And even LISTENING to gossip can be dangerous. (Proverbs 17:4) " The evildoer is paying attention to the lip of hurtfulness. A falsifier is giving ear to the tongue causing adversities." Remember too, that if someone will speak WITH you, they'll speak AGAINST youâ¦.meaning if someone will share hateful words about another person with you, you can be pretty sure they'll talk against YOU, with another.

There are lots of verses about this. The Biblical idea of believing in God is not merely a factual acknowledgment of his existence, but rather a transforming faith that impacts one's lifestyle. Belief in God the Father also requires belief in Jesus, who is also God (the Bible describes a Triune God,… that is, one God made up of three persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) such that you cannot have one without the other. John 1:12-13 "Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God." John 3:16-19 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son." John 5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." John 14:11-12a "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing." Acts 16:31b "...'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved...'" Romans 10:9-10 "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." 1 Corinthians 15:1-5 "Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve." Ephesians 2:8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast." James 2:19-20 "You believe that there is one God. Good!

While I read the question wrong the first time, I did a google search for killing condoned in the torah and found the following: specifically see #8 Kill People Who Don't Listen to Priests Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your Go…d must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT) Kill Witches You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB) Kill Homosexuals "If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives." (Leviticus 20:13 NAB) Kill Fortunetellers A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB) Death for Hitting Dad Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB) Death for Cursing Parents 1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness.

(2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB) Kill False Prophets If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB) Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT) Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night) , and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB) Kill Followers of Other Religions. 1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB) 2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT) Death for Blasphemy One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD's name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother's name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD's will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD's name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD's name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT) Kill False Prophets 1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles take place. If the prophets then say, 'Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,' do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT) 2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.' You may wonder, 'How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?' If the prophet predicts something in the LORD's name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT) Infidels and Gays Should Die So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other's bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved. When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. They are fully aware of God's death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too. (Romans 1:24-32 NLT) Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle For the LORD had said to Moses, 'Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites. You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it. Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again. Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.' (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT) Kill People for Working on the Sabbath The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: 'Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.' (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT) But to return to the question for a moment: There are no such verses in the Torah. ( Full Answer )

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch . 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD : and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 2 Kings 21:1-5 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah. 2And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 3For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. 4And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. Isaiah 47:12-14 12Stand now with thine enchantments , and with the multitude of thy sorceries , wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. 13Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators , stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. 14Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame : there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Ezzekiel 8:15,16 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

Some Bible verses for missionaries are 1 John 3:16 For god so loved the world he gave his one and only son so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but live eternal life
Nowhere in scripture (KJV) do these words directly follow each other i.e "Thank you" However they are contained in sentences as in Romans 1v8 "First, I THANK my God through Jesus Christ for YOU all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world". "Thank thee" is mentioned six times.
Yes, there are many Bible verses regarding believing. One of the most popular is "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV). The verse concisely describes the Christian philosophy on belief an…d salvation, which is that belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God is the only path to Salvation. ( Full Answer )
People throw the word "believe" around a lot these days... and very few [if any] bother to define what it is that they are believing. The dictionary defines "believe" as: "accepting that someone is telling the truth." "Synonyms: trust, have faith in, have confidence in." The first scripture… that came to mind to answer this question, was a passage that tells us that Jesus doesn't trust men. Men who " believed on Him! ": "...many people saw the miraculous signs He was doing and believed in His name. But Jesus would not entrust Himself to them , for He knew all men. He did not need man's testimony about man, for He knew what was in a man ." (John 2:23-25 NIV) In fact... in John 8: verse 30 to the end of the chapter... a group of Jews who "believed" in Jesus tried to kill Him before they were done with their conversation. "I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are ready to kill Me , because you have no room for My Word ." (verse 37 NIV) The Bible, of course, comes from the direction of "believing" God, as opposed to "believing" in men. Of this, Paul says: "...I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the One you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough." (II Cor.11:3-4 NIV) The Bible warns God's servants to be wary of men. To measure what men say against what God's Word says. The question, then, referring to the Bible, discovers that men should be ascertaining, first, what they believe about God... whether or not it's according to His Word -- and then measure the beliefs of others against that. "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard against men ; they will hand you over to the councils and flog you in their synagogues [churches]." (Matt.10:16-17 NIV) Paul's warning is still valid, today. Many modern professing Christian folks will easily "believe" in others who come to them merely acknowledging "Jesus' name"... without delving into what they "believe" about Him. Whether or not their beliefs comply with scripture. But, then, most modern professing Christians don't study God's Word, to know what the Bible says, either. Biblically speaking... Jesus' distrust of men should be a sound passage by which to approach one's "belief in others." He loves us... and He died for us: but until we "prove" ourselves to Him... repent and learn to entrust ourselves to Him -- He can't entrust Himself to us. ( Full Answer )

A: No Bible verse talks about science as a topic, but all of Genesis chapter 1 bears on matters central to scientific theory. For example: . When Genesis 1:3 says that God created light on the first day, but in Genesis 1:14-16 he did not create the sun, moon and stars until the fourth day, we kn…ow that this is a scientific error. . When Genesis 1:14-16 says that God created the sun, moon and stars after the earth already existed, we know this is unscientific. . When Genesis 1:12 says that God created grass, herbs and trees before the sun even existed, we know this is scientifically impossible. Genesis chapter 7 is about another scientific topic - a great flood that covered the earth to the top of the highest mountains. Scientists quickly dismiss this because it is impossible for there to be enough water on our earth to achieve this on a world-wide scale. Geologists also point out that there is no evidence that there ever was a great flood. Archaeologists and anthropologists point out that, for example, the Egyptian civilisation continued right through the entire period attributed to Noah, blissfully unaware of a Flood that killed everyone except Noah and his family. Genesis 9:13-16 deals with the science of optics, when God created the rainbow which from that day forward would symbolise the covenant between God and his people. However scientists say that the laws of nature mean that rainbows could already exist billions of years before the first human on earth. Answer: Agreed. None exist. Having said that, the question remains, how are we to understand the relationship between science and Christianity? Many contend that science has removed the need to believe in God and the Bible. In an articel on the Christian Research Institute's site, J.P. Moreland offers that "Others maintain science and theology mix like oil and water; they are so different that no discovery in science has any bearing on theology or vice versa. Science and religion are radically different spheres of life, they maintain. Still others seem to believe theology is not rational unless it has scientific confirmation, and they fervently look about to find that confirmation." He adds, "Theology provides a world view in which the assumptions of science are best justified. Science cannot be practiced in thin air. In fact, it requires substantive philosophical presuppositions if it is even going to get off the runway. These assumptions include the existence, orderly nature, and knowability of the world; the reliability of our senses and intellect in discovering truth; the existence of truth itself; and the uniformity of nature. Many have argued that these assumptions, while consistent with a naturalistic world view, are odd and without ultimate justification in that world view. These assumptions are best explained and quite at home in a Christian world view." J.P. Moreland offers three more models; "A second model is one in which theology fills out and adds detail to the general principles in a scientific model and vice versa, or theology helps to practically apply principles in a scientific model or vice versa. For example, theology teaches that fathers should not provoke their children to anger, and psychology can add important details by offering information about the nature and causes of anger. Psychology can devise various tests for assessing whether one is or is not a mature person, and theology can offer a normative definition or standard as to what a mature person is." "A third model depicts the beliefs and methods of science and theology as involving two distinct, nonoverlapping areas of reality (e.g., the natural versus the supernatural), or as involving two noninteracting, complementary descriptions - each partially correct but incomplete - of the same reality. Each level of description will have no gaps that need to be filled by information from the other discipline. For example, debates about the extent of the Atonement have nothing to do with physical chemistry. Similarly, theologians have little interest in whether a methane molecule has three or four hydrogen atoms. Moreover, a theological description of certain aspects of human maturity (e.g., Sally is becoming more like Christ) may be complementary to a psychological description of human maturity (e.g., Sally is becoming a unified self)." "This third view that science and theology are two complementary partial descriptions of the world is very popular today, and for good reason. It does accurately capture part of the way science and theology relate. To understand this, it is important to grasp the distinction between primary and secondary causal actions by God. Roughly, what God did in parting the Red Sea was a primary causal act; what God did in guiding and sustaining that sea before and after its parting involved secondary causal acts by God. Secondary causes are God's usual way of operating by which He sustains natural processes in existence and employs them as intermediate agents to accomplish some purpose. Primary causes are God's unusual way of operating and involve direct, discontinuous, miraculous actions by God." "The complementary view is especially helpful when God acts via secondary causes. For example, chemical descriptions of the synthesis of water from hydrogen and oxygen are complementary to a theological description of God's providential governance of the chemicals during the reaction. Unfortunately, many advocates of the complementary view press their position too far by leaving no room for a fourth model of integration. This overuse of the complementary model is rooted in an inadequate view of integration and an improper understanding of the history and philosophy of science." "According to this fourth model of integration, as directly interacting approaches to the same phenomenon, science and theology can be in conflict or concord in various ways. Sometimes a scientific belief will be logically contradictory to a theological belief. For example, some versions of the oscillating universe model imply a beginningless universe - and this contradicts biblical teaching that there was a beginning." "Sometimes science and theology make statements that are not logically contradictory - they could both be true - but are, nevertheless, hard to square with, and tend to count against, each other. For example, most evolutionists have argued that evolutionary theory counts strongly against views of living organisms (including humans) that treat them as having natures or as having substantial souls. According to naturalistic evolution, living organisms are wholly the result of material processes operating on strictly physical objects (e.g., the "prebiotic soup"). "There is no contradiction in holding to naturalistic evolutionary theory and still viewing organisms as creatures with souls and natures as Christian theology would seem to imply. But the reality of the soul and the existence of natures is hard to square with naturalistic evolutionary theory." "It is also possible for scientific and theological beliefs to be mutually reinforcing. For example, some have argued that the Big Bang has given support to the theological belief that the universe had a beginning. The same thing has been claimed for the second law of thermodynamics when applied to the universe as a whole. Other examples of scientific findings giving support to theological presuppositions include the delicate balance of various constants of nature (e.g., gravity) needed for any life to appear in the universe, systematic gaps in the fossil record, the information content in DNA, and the nature of human language. In each case, the theological beliefs were already reasonable without science, but scientific discoveries have given further support to them." "The important thing about this fourth model is that it allows for theological beliefs to enter into the very practice of science. Indeed, one cannot read the history of science without seeing that theology has regularly entered into scientific practice, sometimes inappropriately but other times quite appropriately. Any view of science that rules out this fourth model is a revisionist account of science's history." Additionally: The Bible reveals Eve to have been the world's first "scientist," using the "scientific method" in the Garden of Eden: Observation, Experimentation, and Human Reasoning. "...the woman SAW that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant TO THE EYES [ observation ], and a tree to BE DESIRED TO MAKE ONE WISE [ human reasoning ], she TOOK OF THE FRUIT THEREOF , and DID EAT [ experimentation ]..." (Gen.3:6). ( Full Answer )
The color white, ××× in this case, has many usages. It means pure and clean at times, while in context of disease white spots are obviously bad. For example: NAS Ecclesiastes 9:8 Let your clothes be white all the time, and let not oil be lacking on your head. NAS Isaiah 1:18 "Come no…w, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. KJV Daniel 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed. KJV Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. NAS Revelation 3:4 'But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white; for they are worthy. However, in context of the scale disease commonly translated as "leprosy", white patches are not a good thing: NAS Leviticus 13:3 "And the priest shall look at the mark on the skin of the body, and if the hair in the infection has turned white and the infection appears to be deeper than the skin of his body, it is an infection of leprosy; when the priest has looked at him, he shall pronounce him unclean. NAS Leviticus 13:43 "Then the priest shall look at him; and if the swelling of the infection is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the body, However, something even more interesting is also said regarding this ××× "white" color when the afflicted person becomes completely covered in white: NAS Leviticus 13:13 then the priest shall look, and behold, if the leprosy has covered all his body, he shall pronounce clean him who has the infection; it has all turned white and he is clean . So, patches of white are bad but being completely white when the person is considered "clean" or "pure" according to the Hebrew word ××××¨ "Tahor". - I hope this answers your question ( Full Answer )
