Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

In the beginning...

 

1) If there is space, energy and time but no matter, can anything be created?

 

2) If there is energy, time and matter but no space, where would the created be placed?

 

3) If there is time, matter and space but no energy, how could anything be created?

 

4) If there is matter, space and energy but no time, when could anything be created?

 

5) Where did space, energy, time and matter come from?

 

6) Is the universe finite or infinite and if, it is infinite, can the age be determined?

 

7) If anyone cares to answer, I am looking for answers that can be supported by empirical scientific evidence, not theories.

I had assumed there were a number of folks that post on CF who believe in the "scientific" version of creation, apparently, my assumption was wrong. Or, is it because they have no answers for the questions asked?

"Where did space, energy, time and matter come from?"

 

We don't know where they came from, but the person who was originally responsible for the big bang theory was both a physicist and a priest, so he would presumably have postulated that God had something to do with it.

Hi TWiT, our Mormon friends teach that everything that now exists in space/time, ALWAYS existed (IOW, time, matter, energy, and even human souls are from everlasting, just like the Bible teaches us that God is). However, the church teaches that there was no space/time, matter/energy/souls, etc., before God called it all into existence .. e.g. Hebrews 11:3 (or in the case of our souls, He wove us together in the womb .. Psalm 139:13-16). We, therefore, believe that God is the Creator of all things, whereas the LDS teach that He is simply a rearranger of that which already existed. Which is the long way of saying that we DO know where it all came from, yes :RpS_smile:

 

Yours and His,

David
