    How can people reject the love, compassion and truth of Jesus Christ?

      Because it is a worthless myth?

      The love offered is not love, but conditional love?


      They thought Apollonius of Tyana is more credible as he has been proven to exist whereas jesus hasn't?

        @earnestshub, Jesus love you...He might not care for your attitude or behavior, but He loves you.  Because, you part of God's creation.  Renew your mind to the Truth!!!

          So you have chosen to ignore the reality that biblical love is not love at all, that  love is not conditional by definition and just offer another goddunnit answer.

          I'm used to that here. smile

            There is love in the Bible and there certainly is love in the teachings of Christ.  In some cases beautiful expressions of love.

            The Bible is a reflection of humanity: demons and angels. 

            Whether God made us in his image or we made God in ours, the Bible is at worst a reflection of the norms of the time of writing and at best a good look at how love and peace still occasionally rose to the conscious level even then.

      If you had half the love and compassion which you've learned from Jesus, then you would certainly not be here opening threads. You would have compassion for the people who you abuse when you tell them about a man YOU cannot possible know ever existed to begin with. You've taken it on faith and deceived yourself that Jesus was an actual person. Just because a book told you?

      A book that has and was corrupted before it was ever made into a book. Who do you think put the book together? Man-made. Yes, I get that you THINK it's the inspired word of a god, but that's what you are supposed to think.

      Why do you think that Jesus never wanted anything written down. He wanted people to lead by his example, which is something YOU are not doing. Now, since I am pointing out your flawed example of Jesus, that should tell you something. If it doesn't, then it would be either ego or brainwashing, which prevents you from seeing what your actions provoke. It's not your job to inform me how to live my life and what I should see or who I should follow. You over step your authority of living in this world.

        @Emile R, we have all sinned; but, sin is no longer a major problem in my life; because, I'm the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I repented for sins; and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  And, if I should sin, Jesus is faithful to forgive my sins.  In accordance with 1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (NKJV)  SALVATION in Christ, come aboard!!!

              The problem is that if you are unable to put together sensible grammar then you cannot read it either, this in turn means that what you think are reading and hearing is not what is meant by the words.   Most evangelicals are semi-literate and unable to comprehend life - tuning to simple story answers seems to be a common desease.

            Jesus never sinned; He sacrificed His life; that you might have life and not death. He beared the sins of world on the Cross  And, that includes your sins.  So, that you might have Salvation in Him.  Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.

    Disappearingheadposted 5 years ago

    In answer to your question Romans, there are a myriad of reasons why people reject 'the love, compassion and truth' as you put it.

    What you need to understand is that the Church gives God some pretty bad PR. It doesn't live the love of God; comes over as self righteous, judgemental, puffed up in its own sense of superiority. Messiah did not exhibit these traits. To the outside world the Church looses so much credibility (20,000 denominations can't be wrong lol ) Perhaps the 'gospel' that the Church preaches is so different from the original.

    According to the nativity story, the angels pronounced peace and goodwill to ALL men. But the Church presents a gospel with strings attached and a God that shows conditional love only. The Church's God loves the man when he is alive, but hates him when he is dead (unless he manages to utter a sinner's prayer first).
