    A spiritual reality may exist but Jesus the son of god?  I think not.

    I agree with Jefsaid.

      'son of G-d" is a metaphor for hero. it comes from greek interpretation confusing "sons of god", the expression jews used to belittle sorcerers.

        But metaphors don't make one a physical son of god which the Christians, courtesy Paul and the Church believe.

        The Christians must reform out of their own free will.

          I would say the same for many religious people, while single out one. The fact is, there is a need to evolve the way we understand our heritage and the icons of our beliefs. We need to get deeper into awareness of what they mean. All of us would benefit from it. Not just one group in particular.

                  There are 7 billion people in the planet all connected by the internet. We have extended beyond our biological resources to amass more information about who we are and where we came from. We can make the connections. but we do not. We do choose not to. We are not asking the right questions.

      Since Christianity is based upon the writings of the various authors of the Holy Bible, and since the Holy Bible is viewed as a fact based History text depicting the laws of man through the Laws of Moses which every civilization lives and abides by, then if you accept that God exists, and we live by God's laws, how can you deny the reality of God's Son? God being God, why can he not have a son?

      The one and only purpose of the Holy Spirit is to witness to the individual that Jesus is the Christ and Son of God. If anyone lacks wisdom concerning the subject, ask God with true faith if you have a real intent to know and he will give you an answer. But ask in faith, nothing wavering, with an eye single to the will of God.

      I have a story to share:
      There was a man, who had a wife and daughter who were Christians. Every year they went to church on Christmas eve and tried to get him to go. His answer every year was, "why would God every lower himself into human form?" No God would ever allow himself sink himself to that level. His wife and daughter would carry on and go to church without him. One snowy Christmas eve, he was inside his house, when he heard a big "THUD!" Shocked, he went to his living room and saw birds killing themselves by flying into his living room window. They were all seeking shelter and warmth, but instead, killing themselves. He rushed outside and opened his large barn door in hopes that the birds would try to fly into the barn, instead of his window. The birds could not understand what he was doing and continued to harm themselves by flying into the glass. Struck and saddened, the man said to himself, "if only I was a bird, I could warn them and save them from themselves." At that point he understood why a Great and Powerful God would ever change himself into human form. Jesus was God, who came to earth to tell us how to live and that his love for us is abundant. There's a God who loves you. Don't mistake Christianity for what you might see or think. To be a Christian means, to follow Christ. A follower of Christ should show love in every way.  I guarantee that you will be surprised, that Christianity is not what you perceived it to be, before you read the bible or talked to a pastor.

            I would say the only need that God has is to fix things.  When Adam sinned, everything was broken.  God stepped in and started fixing things to bring them back to what He had planned to begin with.

              You only think things didn't change.  Everything is going according to the plan God had in the beginning. 

              How can anyone say God talking is an issue when he is God and able to do whatever pleases Him.  Communication from God is not the issue.  Listening to what he says is the issue. 

              Muhammad is a self proclaimed prophet with not anointing upon him.  He was a warmonger and a greedy man.  He was what we called in the old west in the US a highwayman.  Ha had his gang of thieves that went out to steal, kill, and destroy. 

              Sounds just like the devil doesn't it.  Joh 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

              The second part of that verse is: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  Jesus speaking.

                as you claim Muhammad is self proclaimed prophet , many say Jesus is self proclaimed prophet too...point i was making is no one can say x belief is right and y is wrong , because it is mere belief...

                  Look at the fruit of their labors.  Muhammad had many wives and was rich.  Never healed anyone, never claimed to be able to save anyone, spoke the words of Satan one time and then said Allah abrogated what he said.

                  Jesus went around with nothing except the clothes on His back, He healed the sick, He raised the dead, He opened blinded eyes.  He never spoke the words of Satan and was crucified and raised Himself up again.

                  Jesus said He was the Son of God and also the son of man at the same time.  He then went on to prove that He is who He said He is.  He also said, if you don't believe me, then believe the works that I do.

                  Many think that it is only a belief, but knowledge comes along with it.  The heavens declare His glory and nature itself testifies of the existence of God.

                  I ask again, who could possibly fix the mess that Adam created?

                    that is whole point...Muhammad didnt heal anyone because he was man and he never claimed anything other than being a man whom god choosed to pass on his message...Muhammad played by the rules because no one is allowed to break the rules...Jesus too played by the rules and so bleeded when nailed...stories were created later because people needed some super natural story to believe Jesus was indeed sent by god but Muhammad needed none becoz he was already accepted as authority...

          primary logic demands there should be creator of creator..god created universe , so logically something should have created god...god can't exist logically...so let us not talk logic when we are talking on something illogical to start with...

          lol you are missing the whole point out here...you seemed to assume that god created universe out of something...like if i create robot , i am its creator...raw materials i use are made of some metal which i didn't create...were already there...or for more better example...like scientist created a cell in lab...living cell...so scientist are not parent but creator of cell...but how did they create it?..from something which was already there...but god didn't create from something which was already there...since there was nothing to start with except god...god use its own energy to create and so god becomes source and metaphorically parent...or else there should be something which god used and so at beginning there should be god + something...now did this something create god?...if yes this something is creator of the creator and if there was nothing , god used its own energy and by default becomes parent...so in end humans are not just robots manufactured by some super entity for its own fun and usage , they are product of same energy which is called god and by default god becomes parent...

              that is what i am saying...god is assumption and not logical...it is assumed constant...always there , always was...no logic...some say it is beyond logic and if it is how does logic come into picture...so your premise of god having son or not capable of having son too is not based on logic but on faith...so dont use word logic when it comes to religion and faith...use i believe ...so you believe god cannot have son which is as valid as some one believing god can have son...because both are mere beliefs...

      oh you want citations? really?  where do you want to start?

      world history? the classics or do you want actual biblical scholarly work? what level of credibility do you want for a forum? MLA? APA? double spaced?

    The Christians must reform .


    Metaphors don't make one a physical son of god which the Christians, courtesy sinful Paul and the sinful Church believe.

    confused as to why so many people waste so much time on this...does it really matter if you know? is that going to make you sit inside on sundays, avoid meat certain days, give up M&M's til april?

    @aka-dj no it wont...even christ wont be able to survive the changing realities...infact the very concept of intelligent being would alter...it is about time...yes new god would be created as humans have tendency to look out than within but all including christ would become obsolete...creator theory would evolve...it would be replaced by cycle theory...but it would take another 1k years or so...

    How can something be MORE fabricated than other religions?!

    I guess there's probably more denominations each believing an ever more specific difference about something which is essentially made up anyway if that's what you mean?

    Why believe in ay religions? You must know in your heart of hearts that they're all ultimately made up?

    @SirDent

    here i am not talking about whether muhammad knew the truth or jesus knew the truth...that depends on whom you ask...as per muslims both muhammad and jesus knew the truth...muhammad came after jesus as final seal of prophet...according to christians muhammad was false prophet...so whom you ask changes answer you get...i am talking from perceptive of two men..two men who thought they had message of god , two men who preached , two men who wanted their word to spread...in single life time muhammad achieved far more than what jesus did...spreading jesus's word and number of christains we have today is to be credited to jesus's follower...they were more successful in spreading the word than jesus himself was...while muhammad could establish hiw authority in his own time and so The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History places muhammad to be NO 1...

    Here I am not talking about who had truth and who didn't ...here i am talking about succeeding in spread what they believed as word of god...

    only buddha can compete with muhammad in this criteria...buddha achieved in his life time what muhammad achieved but buddha didnt take any weapon to meet his goal...
