Believe in Jesus Christ, what do you have to lose?


If the bible is true, and it is, faith in Jesus Christ promises an abundant life now and for eternity. Jesus came to give us something not take something away. So what do you have to lose?

    I don't! I would LOVE anyone who DIED FOR ME & sent "gifts" for me to benefit from IN THIS LIFE!

    This "SPIRITUAL JOURNEY" is BEYOND man's intelligence! The "mind of Christ" gives by-products, e.g. loving ALL w/o seeking rewards!

    "Logic & reasoning?" Where's that from? Your brain which is smarter than GOD'S? Even that sounds IGNORANT to you IF you believe there is a CREATOR & not just "farted from a star!"

    GOD y'all sound like comic book writers!

    Provide the book!

    Alot of hurt has been done in the name of Jesus. Unfortunately hurt people hurt people. I have to be careful that I don't act out of a hurting past with my family, so I lean on the love and grace God has for me and my family.

    You would lose your life without Jesus and gain eternal life in Jesus. If you accept Jesus you would still have your free will and ability to think for yourself. Because we are not robots.

    One cannot by themselves, one needs to have it forced on themselves by someone they trust. Most religion is inherited through one's family members, otherwise there wouldn't be any structured religions to speak of.

    I like CS Lewis, much more focus on spirituality and inner-relationship than theology. He coined the phrase, "You don't have a soul, you ARE a soul - you have a body." We all have a WORKING soul that does NOT need to be 'activated' by God/Jesus.

    How can you be sure Jesus said anything at all? The gospels were written by unknown persons and not by any apostles at all. Besides that, the earliest gospel was penned over 60 years after Jesus' death. The other gospels were over 100 + years later .

    Very philosophical answer which isn't actually an answer. It's an explanation of why you don't want to answer the question. You are correct in one area, faith is a journey either towards or away from God. The journey starts with a choice. Make one.

    The reason "if" is okay is because, "If Egypt is in Africa and it is". Suffering is blamed on religion, but the aim of religion is to take one out of the harm and suffering. However, if one goes back to ways of Egypt, then it is back to suffering.
