The following is an example of the charachter of Jesus as he is talking with the Jewish Pharasees. It is in John chapter 8. Let us contemplate by reading the passage if Jesus has a level of hatred for certain things. Let's see how tolerant he is for those that warp the truth. Let's se how lovey lovely dovey he is toward the liars of his day. And remember that the Character of Jesus doesn't simply change because mankind percieves it to be more accepting of those things that are contrary to what he created us for. Let's get a little taste of that fluffly, flowery, feel good about your sin gospel that some people try to promote.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 ¶ Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God
Thank you MAN for trying to tell me what "GOD" is like, yet again.Each time you do this you only remove "GOD" from yourself.Do yourself a favor and let "GOD" be.Let "GOD" be in the unspoken, and unwritten word and free yourself to become "GOD". Let "GOD" be in the deepest recesses of your mind. You will never have the need to speak for "GOD" again.
Ok so you hate it when I try to explain what God is like by using the Bible. But,,,,,
You turn around and try to express who and What God is according to your mind. How is what you are doing different from me?
You have said here what my point has been all along Because of the PRIDE of man we do not want to conform. We make our own way. We worship ourselves, we become our own GOD. You said it yourself. All 6 billion people on the earth are all their own God. With all due respect spiritchild, You can't posibly believe that their is harmony this way. 10 kids at home, No one listens to Mommy and Daddy. everyone thinks their way is the right way. everyone does their own thing. Recipe for Chaos. What your choosing to do is ignore God and Take over for him Just like lucifer tried. I am sorry but this is absolutely illogical.
Ok, so you don't hate anything. I do think you tried to teach your views about your God based on your own ideas, which you definately have the freedom to do. But it would be good to debate a little the Logic behing your concepts. How can there be harmony when 6 billion people all are there own God. A lot of the questions I have posed no one even tries to answer. Don't you think there is any athority in the spirit realm? Who's in charge? Doesn't truth hold any athority over falesy, whatever the truth is. I mean, if your God were true, Then wouldn't he she or it express the truth so we would know what to follow? You say this is a loving God. Doesn't this loving God love us enough to show us the way?
But then again, how are christians different from, say muslims. I know about the messiah but deep down, both groups are very convinced that their "creator" is the one. Same goes for hindus, buddhists etc. All religions are in core (then) inadequately knowledgeable people´s attempt to rationalize their surroundings and the processes around them.
Christians have the bomb, Islamist muslims do not...it's clear which god is the more powerful... right? I get so confused sometimes...ha.. Glad to see you are still around Saab, do you have warm summers in Finland, how cold are your winters?...d
Philosophical independence is true liberty.
You got that one right.
Please tell me which principle teaching of behavior taught by Jesus brings a negative result in us?
Ah, but most Christians I know don't actually follow the teachings of Jesus. And the truth is that even if the story of jesus was totally fabricated, the teachings in that fictional story are worthy on their own. Thus we could have such a thing as an atheist secular christian.
