46  Theology / Debate / Re:animals and souls on: July 21, 2004, 01:27:19 AM
I'll gladly be a card-carrying member of PETA when the acronomyn starts standing for People Eating Tasty Animals.  Grin
IOW, I am in no way an animal rights activist.

However, I do believe that animals have souls. I also believe that their souls will enter Heaven when they die.

Quote
1. Why do they feel pain?

Do you mean physical or emotional?
Physical would be because they have a nervous system.
Emotional would be a different story.
Amimals that have been domesticated have learned to trust or not trust humans.

I have a 3 month old kitten who lives indoors. She and I play a lot. She knows that if she uses her claws I will swat her and then ignore her. She wants to be played with and she doesn't like the discomfort of a swat. She knows that she can trust me to play with her, pet her, feed her, give her fresh water and a clean kitty box.

There are two kittens that are about the same age as my kitten. They live outdoors. They are wild. When I come outside, they run in fear of the unknown. They've never learned to trust me. All they know about my house is that its a great place to catch mice and gophers and that there is food and water for them. They don't know that I set out the food and water for them. However, I'm guessing they are litter mates, they seem to trust each other and they defend each other.

BTW- Infants inutereo feel physical pain also.

Quote
2. Why do dogs dream?

The same reason why newborn babies and adults dream. All creatures dream because of brain wave activity. The brain does not cease to function simply because we are asleep. When our brain stops functioning, we die.

Quote
3. Why do animals show fear, and the need for self  preservation?

God-given instincts.
At birth, humans rely heavily on instinct too.

Quote
4. How do animals sense good and bad people?

Excellent question, however, animals aren't always right about that.
My ex-inlaws were prejudiced. They owned a dog that only attacked African Americans. They didn't train the dog that way, but I'm sure the dog could sense the difference in the way they treated people of different skin colors. They lived in a neighborhood that was mostly African Americans. The dog didn't even wake them up when a couple of white guys came in one night and robbed them. That dog was wrong.

Back to the kitties in my yard. They sense that I'm bad. They sense that about all people. Those kitties have no reason to fear me at all. In fact, if they would trust me to befriend them, I would make their lives much better and safer by taking them to the vet and caring for them in other ways. But, they sense danger because I'm human.

Candace

When you claim that those who disagree with you are Old Testament Christians or they are being Pharisees, to me it makes you seem to be putting up the same "holier than thou front" that you are upset at others for doing.

We all think we have the right answers and most of us have searched the Scriptures.

Fortunately this is not a Salvation issue because we don't all agree.
48  Theology / Debate / Re:Women in Ministry: A Biblical Perspective on: July 20, 2004, 03:04:17 PM
Here's an idea for you:
Lets just get rid of all of Paul's writing in the Bible.
That would work for some people.
Then again, it wouldn't work for me because I believe that the whole Bible is the inspired Word of God- even the writings of Paul.
49  Welcome / About You! / Re:new here... on: July 20, 2004, 12:56:31 AM
Are you the auntlala that I'm thinking of?

Either way- WELCOME!

Which is why hubby and I have decided no more Heinz catsup in our house.
Thanks for the post DW.

You mean it's not Clinton?
52  Theology / Debate / Re:Whats Your Favorite Drink? on: July 15, 2004, 11:03:48 PM
Sincereheart is right.
Tea must have lemon and no sugar!
(Yes, I really am from the south.)
Some of us are also hypoglycemic and not supposed to have sugar.
Besides, I'm so sweet that I don't need sugar anyway.  Wink

...cookies are annoying bits of info, although, hmmm, some of them actually "track" you, unless of course you don't accept the cookie from the website (in which case you wouldn't be able to sign in.)

All this time I thought cookies were those yummy things that come out of the oven loaded with chocolate chips and calories!  Tongue Wink

I agree.
Homosexuality is a choice.
56  Theology / Debate / Re:Gay Christian priests: A contradiction in terms on: July 15, 2004, 01:44:30 AM
Grin  "judgment and wrath He poored out on Sodom, Mercy and grace he gave us at the cross, I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that our God is an awesome God."

All you Rich Mullins fans out there--the thing Rich  complained about was folks quoting his songs instead of scriptures   . . .but I couldn't help it.   Grin

Candace-
The late Rich Mullins was one of my favorites!
I sure miss his music.
57  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re:Kim Clement on: July 15, 2004, 01:40:04 AM
How long has Clement been preaching now?
I know he has a show on TBN and has been on for a few years.
58  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re:Kim Clement on: July 15, 2004, 12:11:41 AM
OK, just wanted to make sure that I wouldn't get in trouble for starting a thread like this.
I'm not much of a rule breaker, so it bothers me if there is a chance that I accidently broke a rule.
59  Theology / Debate / Re:Women in Ministry: A Biblical Perspective on: July 15, 2004, 12:09:32 AM
I follow the teachings of Wesley just as closely as I follow the teachings of Calvin and Arminius.
None of them got it 100% right, so I'll just stick with what the Bible says.
60  Theology / Debate / Re:Gay Christian priests: A contradiction in terms on: July 15, 2004, 12:05:21 AM
God destroyed sodom and gomorrah to set an example for how we should deal with the queer menace

But aren't we so fortunate that He sent Jesus Christ who showed mercy and grace?!
Otherwise we'd all be doomed.
