    Soul mates?

    Is there a Biblical basis for the concept, or is it something the world devised and Christians co-opted? I've heard some pretty extreme views along the lines of "I'm not going to date anyone because I think God will send one person to me and I will know to marry them immediately" on the soul...

    Gut feelings when looking for a church

    Is it acceptable relying on gut feelings to make decisions on this matter? For context, I'll be moving soon and have been looking at churches in the new area by searching online. I found two with very similar statements of faith (they're actually the same "brand" of church, whatever you call a...

    Favorite tabletop games

    Does anyone here like tabletop games? (The broader category that includes board games) I was playing dominos and five crowns with my grandparents the other day. I'd like to know what so other go-to games are, what people enjoy, etc.

    Does God exaggerate?

    I'm curious what people's thoughts are. Does God use hyperbole or exaggerate? Does anyone have any examples of exaggeration in the Bible, and if so, how does one distinguish between a literal passage and an exaggeration? For example, I take the description of the leviathan in Job to be a...

    This is the year

    For 17 year cicadas on the east coast US of A. They started coming out of the ground a few days ago where I am, and are just starting to make noise. They're sometimes erroneously called 17 year locusts, but locusts are a type of grasshopper. They've been leaving the shells from their nymph...

    Constantly increasing spiritual warfare

    Has anyone noticed that the enemy seems to be so incredibly active lately, more than normal? I have noticed it in my own life as many things go wrong and I struggle with doubts and anxieties and sins. It seems like many others here are struggling, tensions are high everywhere... I have to hope...

    How important is being right?

    I've noticed here and in my day to day life that sometimes discussing doctrinal differences upsets people. That raises the question for me, is it more loving to correct even though the discussion can hurt someone's feelings or make them feel uncomfortable, or is it more loving to back off to...

    What is the Biblical stance on cussing? I used that word specifically to distinguish from swearing and cursing, which I'd say are separate concepts.

    Duplicate push notifications

    I've been getting two push notifications on my android phone every time someone likes a post, posts in a thread on following, etc. Anyone know what might be up and how to fix it? Googling really isn't getting me anywhere. I don't know if the same would happen with other sites since this is the...

    What does love look like?

    When I read 1 Corinthians 13 I often times worry that the first section is describing me If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if...

    Getting in Shape

    Does anyone have any experience losing weight to get in shape? I started going to the gym semi-regularly a couple months ago, but I've just been lifting weights. My muscles are getting bigger, which definitely makes me feel more manly (something I've been lacking in) and generally helps keep my...

    Miracles that involve spitting?

    I'm reading back through the gospels and noticing some of the miracles involve Jesus spitting on the person who needs to be healed. For example, in Mark 6, Jesus sticks his fingers in a deaf guy's ears and then spits and touches the man's tongue. In Mark 8, Jesus spits in a blind man's eyes...

    Why was Jesus' death sufficient?

    In the spirit of 1 Peter 3:15 "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." I'd appreciate some input on this subject. I've always taken it for granted that Jesus' death was sufficient for all my sins: past, present, and future...
