For me Jesus Christ was the most honest and true human being on earth. I only find His words being twisted and turned by humans to suit their purposes.

Jesus demonstrated in the temple that the place is holy and should not be abuse by anyone. Jesus never made mistake.
I tend to agree. It's just that his action made no difference to history at all. God knows that nothing changes on earth, nothing makes a difference really in an idealist sense. Only on a personal level do people develop. But Jesus'anger was correct.
Be Born-Again and receive the Holy Spirit. Then open your mouth concerning the Divinity of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Thank you rdcast, I may give that a look. It's sad, but some churches are turned into wine bars or people's private homes these days - or ironically, into mosques, which I've seen. In that sense Jesus driving those guys out of the temple didn't work.
Jesus Christ, Savior, Lord, King and Creator, warned against defiling the Worship of God. You can't create God into something He isn't. He is creating YOU. Learn by His Word, what that is to be.
A very studied answer indeed. Actually we do not know whether the incident in the temple or so many other incidences which contradict each other are real incidences at all.
The incident in the temple might have been a deliberate and studied action.
The Creator doesn't pretend to trust the created, yet converse must occur to suit the Creator's will.
except for he was born of the Virgin Mary, as well as conceived by the Spirit. He was born without Original Sin and thus doesn't sin. He does weep and get angry and scared however.
The created learns from the Creator
Apparently anger isn't a sin since the Bible says, "Be angry but do not sin."
Some anger is. But there is "righteous anger"
What's more important is that He was sinless, yet He was still tempted by sin. He was a man so, naturally, He would have experienced temptation. Yet He remained sinless.
Jesus was born as the man on legal purpose. Man sin and man had to die. Animals never sin and sacrifice of animals were only temporary, atonement (cover).
Mr Vladimir Uhri, you hit the nail on the head without mincing words. That's a gift...
that wipes out quite a of the world's population, children brought up in other cultures, tribes who have never heard of Jesus etc ... Every religion uses pretty much the same arguments that support the notion that their figure of worship is THE one.
God won't honor your complaint Electro-Denizen. Antichrists are those who actively and willfully reject Jesus Christ as the resurrected Savior and Son of the only God. The Word of God handles the issue of those never witnessed to. Read it.
Don't want to be mean, but it's so much easier to try and get others to come round to one's own point of view (with us or against us mentality) rather than doing genuine work on oneself. Get a passport. Travel widely. Read widely.
You perceive I'm trying to convert the willfully blind. You get my point. When it's too late, the same will beg to gain what they rejected all their lives. My only prayer for such people is for their hour of desperation comes before then.
Sigh. :-) God bless you
You realize, by saying that, you've made both a witness and prayer? I don't believe my mind can not pray for very long, if at all. Whenever I speak with you, or whomever, amen should be implied.
Unfortunately its comments like this that make people hate Christians...
Do you think I except his existence?
Cruelkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless)
Except, yes. Accept, no. I pray you do accept His free gift of salvation before it's too late. Time is drawing short.
Can I believe in him an only him. Cause I do not believe estimated 40 people who wrote the bible 100 years after Jesus death. He is only mention in the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Luke and the Gospel of John.
Incorrect cruel - He is mentioned in Genesis and His coming is prophesied in the OT. The Bible has more historicity than other well known ancient texts and 100 yrs. is not a long time.
I beg to differ Dubuquedogtrainer Jesus is not mentioned by name, it is your assumption that it is him. The Bible devotes some 500 verses on prayer, less than 500verses on faith, but over 2000 verses on money and possessions. Not my Jesus?
Cruel - have you ever read the Bible?
Yes which one. There is so many, its been changed, translated, revised so many times and only about 60% of any Bible you pick up is consistent with the rest. I believe in Jesus and the message he tried to give us and ONLY HIM. I don't believe in re
Are you born again? If so, why do you have the name, "cruelkindness?" Have you read the KJV? Of course, the devil knows the Bible, doesn't he?
Are you asking these questions to me because you think i'm the one who needs to know Jesus? Jesus was disgusted by the rich and powerful. He did not want us to idolize nothing including himself. Correct me if I am wrong. Name is cause the truth can
Cruel - you do not make sense. I'm done with this discussion. Got other things to do.
Dubuquedogtrainer - I will take your comment to my last statement being correct. People are so angry. We both mutually believe in Jesus. Why so defensive when I never said anything hurtful or cruel. Hum... ? And I enjoyed our comments of questions.
PS 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
Psalms 29:2 Give unto Jehovah the glory of his name; worship Jehovah in holy splendour. King David, I like them both. You?
The KJV is the only public domain translation. Commercial translations such as the Darby Bible, are useful and thoughtful. The 21st Century KJV along with the VW are also good.
Ah! kindness is being served at the table of humankind.
Cruelkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless)
An infinitely more accurate and inspired living translation is that which the Holy Spirit writes on the fleshy tablets of our hearts.
You are repeating yourself from another question by the same author. Are you stalking me with this statement? I would suggest you face your own apprehensions.
MT 8:21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury m
The Gospel of Mark, believed to be the first written of the four gospels, narrates the Baptism of Jesus, his preaching, Mathew an Luke's follow Marks Narrative. Gospel of John, differs greatly from the first three gospels. Believed to be unreliable
Five people can witness the same event and when they settle down to write down their stories, you can bet they will differ. Why?...because they all see from a different point of view!
Let's not allow vanity obscure who God is and if you wish to deny Jesus Christ as the Son of God, keep you tongue for your own sake. The Book of Revelation is full of judgment against Antichrists. God doesn't need my defense, so I wont entertain it.
I love how I get voted down for my own personal answer and not an answer that came from the bible.
So does everyone like the answers they want to here. Cause i can do that.
Cruelkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless)
There, I voted you up. I might not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it*(where did I hear that). Besides, you're awesome!
Your sentiment is correct, but would you agree that our Lord lived in the Spirit, yet walked among us in a body of flesh, complete with all human needs? Though He sinned not. Praise be God!!!
We both know this, yet it can't register with the spiritually blind. So why should we EVER posture as if we should defend God Almighty? The lost need to stew in their pointless vanity. Eventually, they will lose energy for attack, if indeed God calls
rdcast you weren't brought up Muslim or Hindu... 'Pointless vanity' - very judgmental and hard words. I doubt they could be used of people who have been drawn to a life of prayer in God from different backgrounds but who don't see Jesus like u do :-)
E-D, you poke at me from many angles. Vanity is Satan's nickname and another name for sin. It slimes its way into all our lives. The willfully blind are kept form understanding. Vanity owns them till fate of desperation finds them.
