  1. It was not a sin for Hosea to marry Gomer. They didn't have sex before the wedding. He was commanded to marry Gomer not have premarital sex.
  2. Conservative Bible-believing Christians agree with mainstream Muslims on many things regarding modesty and purity: we abhor fornication, adultery, incest, etc. We believe that sexual unions should only take place between a husband and wife. We also believe that Christian women should dress modestly with decent clothes and not showing too much skin. We abhor the secular view of how everything should be flaunted and anything pretty much goes at the whim of oneself. There many things that conservative Christians and conservative Muslims believe about modesty and ethics (regardless of denomi
  3. From a Christian theological point of view, it means that humans have certain attributes of God (non-divine, of course): like having a will and consciousness. It never means anything physical (since God is pure spirit). Only Mormons take the image (image Dei) to be a physical thing (but then again, they are not Christian from an orthodox stance).
  4. Disagree. If you mean by "genocide" the systematic killing of Christians by a government. However, persecution is on the rise against Christians but not by Muslims but secular people. There is no systematic persecution of Christians in Muslim-dominated countries. Iran, Oman, Lebanon, etc. do not have Christians living in oppression. In fact, Christians have rights and protections in those countries. Even in Wahhabi dominated Arab countries (like KSA or Qatar) Christians are not persecuted. Only in those places where extremist Salafism is practiced are Christians persecuted and even kille
  5. Yes, some "Christians" believe that but that is not the view of mainstream Christians. Catholics believe one must do various deeds and penance to go to heaven. Many Protestants, especially those who are Methodist or Pentecostal, believe that sinning can cut you off from the grace of God and send you to hell (unless you sincerely repent of that sin and do the right things again). Calvinists, who believe in predestination, say that a truly redeemed person will not go on sinning with impunity. There are some fringe groups, especially among the fundamentalists, that say that one can just say a pra
  6. I like the Book of Hebrews. It talks about the importance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins. I also really like the Psalms and Proverbs. They give excellent comfort and advice for those struggling with walking the Christian path.
  7. Just to clarify, the term "evangelical" is a broad term and is not restricted to a particular sect or denomination within Christianity. It is anyone who believes in the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation and believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ must be preached to all nations for the forgiveness of sins and salvation of souls. One can be an Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, a non-denominational, etc. and be evangelical. Even some Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians label themselves as "evangelical" even though the term is normally restricted
  8. Does anyone know of the doctrinal backgrounds about these "Islamist" terrorists? I would be curious what sect these murderers are associated with. I highly doubt they are Shia, Ibadi, Sufi, or any one of the mainstream Sunni sects.
  9. Okay, I didn't want this thread to turn into a theological debate about the deity of Christ. I just wanted to know how a Trinitarian Christian like me (who willingly and knowingly accepts the doctrine of the Trinity) will be treated under a Shia rulership. Will I still be treated with full respect and dignity as a human being as long as I don't do anything criminal or disturb the peace?
  10. I'm asking because Oman seems to have less animosity towards Iran compared to the other Arabian Gulf states.
  11. I actually understand the concept of the tax imposed upon Jews and Christians. Muslims pay their own taxes and Jews and Christians pay their own. Taxation is a rule of life no matter what country you live in, and no country can function without revenue from its citizens. My primary intent of the question is how will Trinitarian Christians be treated under a true Islamic state. Is there a difference between a Shia ruled state and a Wahhabi/Salafi ruled state. Many in the West when they hear "Islamic Caliphate" they immediately think of Wahhabi/Salafi ruled states and brings much fear in th
  12. How would I be treated then under an Islamic caliphate or rulership? Even if I mind my own business, live peaceably, don't do criminal acts, etc. would I still be treated like a pagan if I refuse to convert to a non-Trinitarian belief in God? What if I remain steadfast in my beliefs, how will I be treated even if I live a respectable and peaceful life?
