see what the bible says and answer the question yourself : 1Co 13:1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 1Co 13:2 And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1Co 13:3 And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing.
"But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men." Luke 6:35
Well Cagsil, it is actually the most important verse in all of the Bible. "For God so loved the world (you) that he sent his one and only Son, that whosoever believe in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condem the world, but that through him the world would be saved." Despite the fact that we killed his only Son, he still forgives us and loves us, all we have to do is believe in him and his son, Jesus. It is evident by you anger at God that you must believe in him. Just remember he still loves you so much he allowed us to KILL his only child for YOU.
Only when billions and billions of souls are at stake and no one is listening to how important of a deal that is and when unenlightened individuals (such as yourself) deny the existance of their very essence despite the fact that when they feel fear they feel it in the body center (show me the fear muscle that reacts) or when their heart is broken they feel it in their chest (does the heart have a brain?).
the most important verse as far as making us feel good..???? Read all of the above posts... The most important one that is causing us trouble that we need to understand..But out of blind allegiance to what we have been taught....!!!!!!!
Matt. 24:34 "THIS" generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled". but no one knows the day or hour. Jesus said this twenty or more generations ago.....
OK twist this around until you get "What ever generation that these things happen during, that will be the generation that these things are to occur in and then will I come again but not until then "
Which one of these two things does the virse actually say.......?????
Mark 12:29" The most important one, " answered Jesus, is this: 'Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strenght . 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as youself . There is no commandment greater than these."
JOHN 3: 16-17 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever beleiveth in Him shall have everlasting life,and have it more abundantly. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved." This spells out to mankind how, he or she, can through Faith in Jesus Christ alone redeem salvation for their immortal spirits and be returned to the love of God The Father. God hates not the sinner but their sins, and wishes all mankind to return to Him as Father.
I believe that all of the Bible's verses are important to give us the 3-in-1 God's rescue through Jesus from our imperfection--the Old Testament to prepare us for his coming and the relationship we may have with him and the New Testament to describe and explain Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Some people think that only Jesus' words are important, but I believe that God inspired all of the words to point to the one God--Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit--and our relationship to him.
I consider the verse, God is love, as being the most important verse in the bible because if God didn't love us, we could be subject to an unmentionable hell without recourse. It is the beginning of creation's foundation.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
well you might be right but have you considered these verses : Mat 22:37 Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Mat 22:39 And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets. don't you think these might be more important than what you wrote
Earn: Lolol..I spent 2 1/2 yrs in baptist seminary. I found that the only good thing about the bible was that the page paper was thin and made rollin' a joint easy. I was worried about being poisoned by the black ink print, but after a few tokes ya don't give a damn...lol
Wyan and Earn:...I'm gonna hit the sac. :-) Been a pleasure! I've got friends com'in over tomorrow nite and I've run outa "bible." Gotta hit the chapel tomorrow "holy communion"...they serve the best Mogan David brewed...on the way out, I'll have my rollin papers! :-) g'nite all..:-)
"Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day."
I reckon this is pretty good. It shows a psychotic god when he decides he will threaten the whole deal! "I will sweep away everything in all your land," says the LORD. "I will sweep away both people and animals alike. Even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will die. I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, along with the rest of humanity," says the LORD. "I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear. For they go up to their roofs and bow to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the LORD, but then they worship Molech, too. So now I will destroy them! And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD's guidance or seek my blessings." (Zephaniah 1:2-6 NLT)
I thought it told you to love everyone. You admit it teaches you to hate those you think are evil or wicked? Why do you have so much hate in your heart when you claim to be saved? I think you are confused.
Gotta say sooner that as best I know Ernest is not Mark Knowles, and his styles are different, not in a contrived way, but in a natural way.... He still makes snide comments from the old testament though!
Not for a very long time. In my city we speak 183 languages. Australia is a financially strong multi cultural society as diverse as any country in the world in ethnicity. We are a broad minded educated people with free education, medicine and the separation of church and government, strong gun controls and a very free lifestyle.
I think God's instruction to Adam and Eve in Genesis 'be fruitful and multiply, subdue the earth, and replenish it' is the most important verse in the bible. It happens to be the first commandemnt uttered to man in the Torah.
Hay "Ms T" and Earnie; and everybody.... bope all is well with ya ...
Yea; ... look what happened... They forgot to Love their source with all of their heart and mind. And then started messing around with their neighbors wife. That is how our condition has gotten in the condition that it is in.
Hi Jerami, you will need to say hi again. I do not answer to earnie. Not my name. Earnie is not a name. Ernie is, but that is the diminutive of Ernest, which is not my name either. My name has german origins and is Earnest.. Hope that clears it up.
Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is One: Thou shalt Love the Lord our God with..., and Thou shalt Love thy neighbor as thyself.
These commandments art the base, the foundation of the entire Holy Bible. They art the purpose for the Bible. And, in these verses shall the entire world be transformed from a world of hate, or a"hell-world" unto a world of Love, or a "heaven-world" amongst other heaven-worlds.
"Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:19
There is NOT 1 most important verse but all the bible verses are important!
"Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD. "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction". (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)
Geeze he sure shows his psychotic side when not obeyed! What a pile!!!
Answer!..Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
..the most important 4 words in the bible are these: "In the beginning, god..." Moses alledgedly created this "god" thing of the bible with those 4 words. Prior to writing those words, this biblical "god" thing didn't exist.
If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)
I'm going with this one, Mat 22:37 Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Mat 22:39 And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
god didn't allow abraham to kill his own son. I can sort of imagine what ab went through, but ab believed god and had faith that god knew what god was doing. Then after THE TEST which ab PASSED the lord said "You will possess a land of milk and honey and i will multiply your seed as the sand upon the beach". It would be nice if you had a brain behind your mouth MR. earnestlywrongallthetime, stick to car parts in those you have your reward already.
Shut down the weak stereotypes sport, you haven't got the brain power or word power for it. I write about a lot more than cars. Read my hub "The biblical god is a psychopath, you will discover just how far off the mark you are!
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17
You all have it wrong! The most important words in the OT are these: "in the beginning, god..." Why do I say that? If you were a thinker you'd know! These are the 4 words that Moses alledgedly used to "create" this biblical god thing. They are proof that MAN created this biblical god thing. Amen and amen.
Moses? What the hell is wrong with you? Just kidding... I guess anything is possible; I just got told by some fool (on another forum) that I was too much of an intellectual. I suppose they went from genius to mentally challenged once I arrived... I think my forum days are running thin, to say the least... Keep on keeping on, Quark. My ass is about out of here; I can barely absorb the retards without regurgitating. Plus, my fan support, when it comes to forum debates, sucks ass! Ha-ha! Take it from here... I'm starting to detest a few things, to say the least... LOL!
Obscure: lolol You are aware that I used the word "alledgedly" when speaking of this Moses guy...lol I agree with you in ref to the dirth of "intellect" espoused by the majority of responders, but hell, I'm retired and my evenings can be boring..sooooo..what do I do? Entertain my self by reading silly responses. I guarantee you tho, and you've probably read a response or 2 that says I will not drop to your level of primitive, childish ignorance and respond..from this point forward you will be ignored....argghhh But, it's kinda fun and time consuming. I hope ya stick around...:-)
Yeah, I was just teasing ya. Yep, it is fun at times, but the low level of intellect from some of these people can also become tiresome. I don't know, maybe I'll try to not play in the forums as much, since my disposition is not always forum viable. LOL! Okay, see ya around cyberspace...
I know that the holy trinity are all meant to be the same and one being. God is the father and the son and the holy spirit. But, taking into account, this was decided by a group of men hundreds of years after Jesus,...
The most important thing you should consider over anything else is how you treat others. It's great to find God, but it's more important to just BE A GOOD PERSON. It's what everyone should strive for first. Not money....
