The so-called "Gospel of Judas" is neither a gospel nor written by Judas. It's a second-century document that was created to promote gnostic ideas that directly contradict what Jesus' disciples wrote in the New Testament.
The word Israel appears in the Bible over 2,400 times, and it's used in a number of different ways. The word itself is difficult to precisely define. The el part of the word refers to God, as in Elohim. The rest of the word comes from the Hebrew sara, usually defined as to wrestle, or compete.
The word trinity comes from the Latin trinitas, which means "triad." The doctrine of the Trinity is a primary belief of Christians, in which God is understood to be one God who is three persons.
However, the Bible does not teach any kind of "blind faith." We are given evidence, again and again, that God is who He says He is. Faith in God is the result of examining the evidence. We can't please God without faith, so we must examine the evidence in order to please Him.
Many, even non-Christians, believe that God is love. However: only those who believe in the Trinity can substantiate the claim. It's not arrogance that makes me say that... it's simple logic.
Can a person be TOO religious? In much of the world, being a Christian doesn't present any real social problems... but being vocal about your faith is often seen as going too far. How much is too much, and how much is just right?
Pantheism, coined in 1697, comes from Greek. Pan means "everything" and theos means "god." Pantheism is the belief that everything is divine... that everything that exists is god, or part of god. This belief is held by many, but not all, Hindus and Buddhists. Elements of pantheism also exist in other religions, including Sikhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and more.
Abortion is always a hot topic. Some see the debate as between religious people and non-religious people, but that's hardly accurate. There are a lot of atheists who oppose abortion, for example. The question at hand is whether abortion is a moral good, a moral evil, or a neutral act.
The Bible speaks regularly about demons, and about the healing of physical illnesses. Sometimes, both are included in the same verse. Some conclude that demons cause illnesses, and that casting out the demons will heal the illnesses. Is this true?
