also is "Jesus" a clue to this enigma has the holy grail and the philosophers stone been lost or kept from us? Does "Jesus" represent something as an alternative way to the pure DNA. John 3:14, Jesus Explained His Exclusive Position. Only Through Jesus Can Any Come To God. Reject Jesus, Reject God.
This is like the golden ticket only if we understand what believing in Jesus means. Its kinda like you can't win the lottery if you don't play.
Believing in what Jesus taught is more important than believing he existed or died for your sins.
How he said to treat others. How he said to not to let desires for money overtake your mind. & the many others things he taught. This will light you up in order for flight.
Well said... and certainly more important than wasting time on the mechanics of DNA, stones and potions.
or I could do both! there's a thought! or maybe I should just sit on my roof and have faith.....
There once was an old man who had great faith. He lived in a fllood-plain. One day after a particularily hard rain, a Ranger pulls up in front of the house in a 4x4. The Ranger tells the old man that a great flood is coming, that he needs to evacuate. The old man insists on staying saying, "I have faith! God will save me from the flood!" The Ranger argues, but to no avail, and finally leaves to save more sensible people.
The next day, the floodwaters have covered the old man's yard, and are lapping at his porch. The same Ranger pulls up in a john-boat and begs the old man once more to evacuate. The old man remains firm, saying, "I have faith! God will save me from the flood!" The Ranger argues to no avail, and finally leaves.
The next day, the floodwaters have covered the 1st and 2nd stories, and a helicoptor flies in to hover over the old man perched upon the roof. The Ranger yells to the old man, "Climb up! We need to get you out of here!" Once again, the old man replies, "I have faith! God will save me from the flood!" As they argue, a wave sweeps the old man off the roof and he drowns.
The old man arrives at the gates of Heaven, and is greeted by the Angel Gabriel. The old man says, "I want to speak with God." Gabriel smiles and says that God wants to talk to him, too. The old man is ushered into the presence of God, and says, "Lord, I don't understand! I had faith that you would save me! What happened?"
God looks at him, sighs, and says, "I sent you a 4x4, a boat, and a helicopter, what more did you want???"
