I dunno, but the whole concept of Christianity leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Literally ALL you have to do to save your soul is believe in Jesus in the flesh, and then you don't have to do any good works or anything, as long as you believe and keep your sin-repentance ratio in the black you're alright?

I find that to be a spiritual trap.

Well I know you said you covered it before, but it's a long thread so please, humour me.

Did Jesus or did Jesus not say we are Gods?

If not, Jesus is a liar or the words of Jesus in the Bible were wholly misrepresented. Either way that goes, your arguments fall apart.

If yes, you acknowledge that he said this, but choose to disregard it? If that's the case, you may have built your own prison.

Sandi, just because we are called Christians, doesn't make us perfect. We are still human being, living in the same flesh as anybody else. We make mistakes, especially me lol, all the time. Our faith and our Lord are constantly mocked. We are not bullet proof, and it hurts to be attacked just b/c of what we believe in.

I know we differ in our belief, but you are a perfect example that our difference doesn't have to divide us. For if we choose to, we can, and should, love one another regardless.

I call you my friend, regardless of are differences of opinions.

BTW- I feel blessed to have a friend like you!

 Quoting: Troubled Waters...


No, christians aren't perfect. That's not the point. Christians don't even TRY to keep the foundational rules of the old testament. THAT is the point:

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

The 'grace' business teaches in direct opposition to this. Jesus says to obey the old testament laws. Christians teach 'grace' and that the old laws are no longer in effect and don't bother with them or worry about them--you're not perfect anyway, so don't even try. Too much work...

James 2:14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.



The point is that, if there is love for your god, the works, the obedience, will rise naturally from that. Sometimes you may fail, but the majority don't even TRY to live by the laws of the OT god. Even though jesus says to, james says to--and james goes so far as to say that if you aren't doing it, you don't really have true faith.

The doctrine of "we don't have to obey those laws, and we couldn't even if we tried, so don't bother" is simply not scriptural, not obedient to jesus, and definitely does not show love for the OT god, which is whom you are supposedly worshiping in jesus...



I am not speaking to you personally, dear. This is about the doctrines and the teachings, not you. I hope you don't feel like I'm making it about YOU as a person, because I certainly am not. I think you are a good person (no matter what the bible says about you :p).

“If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.”

Colossians 1:13
“For he rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us, to the kingdom of his beloved son.”

Psalm 44:12
“You sell your people for next to nothing and are not enriched by selling them.”

“How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them and the Lord had given them up? Indeed their rock is not like our Rock, Even our enemies themselves judge this.”

Sheeple

"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth programme, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

When someone truly accepts in their heart, Jesus as their Lord and savior, they are filled with the Holy Spirit. Once you are filled with the Spirit you become a new creation in Christ Jesus. Do we still sin? Of course we do, for we are still living in this flesh. The difference is, when we now sin, our sins are revealed to us through the spirit, and we feel the need to repent of our sins and to ask forgiveness. Its very hard to explain, at least it is for me personally, but having the Holy spirit indwelled in you takes away the desire to wanna freely sin.

Re: We are NOT Gods... There Is Only ONE God <<< His name Is Jesus Christ The Lord >>>
I think this has proven the power of indoctrination over the intelligent evaluation of facts.

Sorry to repeat these FACTS but at least they are FACTS and not indoctrinated untruths.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him (GOD) should not perish, but have everlasting life.

It is very clear that the him is GOD who sent Jesus ... NOT Jesus! And this is proven in John 5:24.


John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him (GOD) that sent me (JESUS), hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Either John 5:24 is 100% incorrect or you are misreading who the him is in John 3:15 and John 3:16.

John 5:24 is very very specific!

If Christianity is full of honest people this simply can't be denied.

BUT indoctrination makes fools of many, and Jesus even warned Christians about that.

Mark 7:7-9 Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.

For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”

Then he said, “You skillfully sidestep God’s law in order to hold on to your own tradition.


I'm really sorry that many of you people are so indoctrinated by religions and so bland as to what Jesus actually said.

Some of you who would claim that the ten commandments are GODS laws break many.

Commandment 4. You haven't kept the Sabbath holy - You can worship any day but the Sabbath is 6pm Friday till 6pm Saturday.

Like myself you live in countries where the land was stolen and coveted and where many natives were killed by the Christian pioneers. Many of you probably support capital punishment.

Commandment 6. Thou shalt not kill.

Commandment 8. Thou shalt not steal.

Commandment 10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbours property

Our forefathers both coveted and stole. We live on stolen land! If you buy a stolen ring from a thief have you committed a crime?

But also many of you have born false witness against posters here.

Commandment 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour

And many here show pictures of Christ, where crosses and have other religious paraphernalia.

Commandment 2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

And if Jesus is not GOD you have broken

Commandment 1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

So even leaving out Commandment 1 if you believe Jesus to be GOD, how many commandments have you and your forefathers broken?

So much for Christian values!

Mankind is in big trouble if the Bible is true and remember Christians with their threats of hellfire and damnation might be those who Jesus spoke of here

Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Afterall REMEMBER Jesus also said

Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Well maybe the Kingdom of Heaven already belongs to Atheists!

They didn't trust Christian handling of scriptures enough to even believe.

 Quoting: Sandi_T


There are alot that claim Christianity, but in reality have never truly been indwelled with the Holy Spirit. They play church, then they go back into the world of sin. This gives Christians a bad rap, but you can't put every Christian under the same umbrella.

Secondly, Jesus fulfilled both the law and the prophets, which done of us could have possibly done. Thus our salvation comes from not obeying the law, but by our faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and His Righteousness. Contrary to popular opinion, Jesus never said that we must keep the OT law, but rather establish it, through love.

Am I saying that a Christian has a free reign to sin? No, of course not! If we sin wilfully, then the love of God is not in us. What I am saying is we won't be judged by the works of the law, but by faith.

James said, that faith without works is dead. That doesn't mean that we have to work our way to salvation, but by our works you can know if one is really in the faith.

Paul said, that it is by faith that you are saved, not by works.

Anyway, I just wanted to add another 2cents worth lol.

And don't assume you're talking to Jesus, as if you had been born in a different country you could just as easily think you were talking to Krishna, and proselytize Hinduism while thinking all Christians are eternally lost until they see the light of Brahman.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him (GOD) should not perish, but have everlasting life.

It is very clear that the him is GOD who sent Jesus ... NOT Jesus! And this is proven in John 5:24.


John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him (GOD) that sent me (JESUS), hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Either John 5:24 is 100% incorrect or you are misreading who the him is in John 3:15 and John 3:16.

John 5:24 is very very specific!

If Christianity is full of honest people this simply can't be denied.

BUT indoctrination makes fools of many, and Jesus even warned Christians about that.

Mark 7:7-9 Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.

For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”

Then he said, “You skillfully sidestep God’s law in order to hold on to your own tradition.


I'm really sorry that many of you people are so indoctrinated by religions and so bland as to what Jesus actually said.

Some of you who would claim that the ten commandments are GODS laws break many.

Commandment 4. You haven't kept the Sabbath holy - You can worship any day but the Sabbath is 6pm Friday till 6pm Saturday.

Like myself you live in countries where the land was stolen and coveted and where many natives were killed by the Christian pioneers. Many of you probably support capital punishment.

Commandment 6. Thou shalt not kill.

Commandment 8. Thou shalt not steal.

Commandment 10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbours property

Our forefathers both coveted and stole. We live on stolen land! If you buy a stolen ring from a thief have you committed a crime?

But also many of you have born false witness against posters here.

Commandment 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour

And many here show pictures of Christ, where crosses and have other religious paraphernalia.

Commandment 2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

And if Jesus is not GOD you have broken

Commandment 1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

So even leaving out Commandment 1 if you believe Jesus to be GOD, how many commandments have you and your forefathers broken?

So much for Christian values!

Mankind is in big trouble if the Bible is true and remember Christians with their threats of hellfire and damnation might be those who Jesus spoke of here

Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Afterall REMEMBER Jesus also said

Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Well maybe the Kingdom of Heaven already belongs to Atheists!

They didn't trust Christian handling of scriptures enough to even believe.

Trinity!!!

I suppose we are not gonna come to an agreement here. we keep bringing up the same scriptures over and over again, that has already been explained. Its like we are continuing to beat a dead horse.

We all have our own opinions, and thats okay, one day we will all know the truth.

Jesus says that we are God or part of God:

“The people are God. One could also say “a part of God”. A personified God with long beard or sitting on a cloud does not exist.” (Jesus Christ - Channeling; 97 05 13)

If you beLIEve there is only one god, then you are far from being advanced spiritually...

It is monotheism, in a polytheistic galaxy... Many gods animating bodies, but only one god for you...

But there you go breaking a commandment again "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour".

I never said "Discard all of Paul"... show me where I said that.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1190661



Luke referred to Paul as an Apostle.

Peter said this about Paul's writings:

...our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction
.


You said this:

-Paul the oppressor

-one has to seriously question the value of Paul's teachings.

-Paul was the first distraction from the word of Christ.

-Paul was promoted when his letters were placed in what we now call the Bible. A man's interpretations were suddenly presented as GOD's WORD wrongly!



-Paul's suspect writings.

 Quoting: Daniel's Seventieth Seven 1071051


Of the fourteen letters attributed to Paul, he only wrote seven of them (even some of those are disputed), those being Romans, First Corinthians, Second Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, First Thessalonians, and Philemon

The First Epistle to Timothy, the Second Epistle to Timothy, and the Epistle to Titus are often referred to as the Pastoral Epistles, and, after Hebrews, are the most disputed of all the epistles attributed to Paul.

Just saying... let's be careful of the words we are putting into Paul's mouth :)

There are no preserved lists of a Christian New Testament canon from the 1st century and early 2nd century

Even tho Luke-Acts have been falsely ascribed to Luke the Evangelist, critical scholarship reveals that both the books (initially one volume) of Luke and Acts were anonymously written, c. 80-90 CE

Again, let's be careful of the words we are putting into Luke's mouth :)

Mad? as in animals? or angry? as in human? Neither :)

I would simply like to see the voices of history represented correctly, or at least, to the best of our ability.

Paul's 'writings' are such a contradictory because... Paul didn't say them all :) It behooves us to determine which is which.
