Thanks, Your answer is very helpful. Thanks for the insight.
Thank you! I'm so glad I could help!
And yet God saw today's technology even back then. He knew of the great star named Chernobyl ("wormwood" in Ukrainian). He knew of the microchips the Rockefellers and other followers of Mammon would want to implant in us -- the mark of the beast
the mark of the beast is not some microchip. it is nothing more than our thoughts an dour actions. whether we think and act in favor of man or GOD. this shows where our loyalties lay.
not all of us celebrate pagan holidays
If you partake in the Easter bunny & baskets or Santa Claus & Christmas tree then you are. If on Easter you only go to church and celebrate Jesus and on Christmas only think about Jesus' birth then you are doing it right for your beliefs.
Jesus said the law and prophets are not destroyed, but fulfilled. Jesus did not do away with the Mosaic Law, but embodied it. The same Jesus who said "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone" also said "Go, and sin no more".
Justin, GOD is my religion, i attend no church. i celebrate no christian holidays.
If god is your religion and you don't attend church, do you associate which any certain Bible. You mentioned you follow Christ who preached to follow Jewish holidays like Passover. Do you follow those holidays that Christ and God preached to follow
i associate with the KJV bible only. at this point in time, i do not observe Jewish holy days. i am still learning, and waiting for GOD to teach me if HE wishes me to keep holidays meant for the Jews.
I dont understand your thinking then. if you follow christ and his teachings. he was a jew. he followed passover. he told his followers to follow passover as god commanded.
justin, Passover is a Holy day sacred to the jews, to remind them who brought them out of bondage with egypt. CHRIST was talking to HIS followers who were also jews. i am not a jew. everything i obey, but some jew specific things, i am not sure of
Your beliefs intrigues me I do understand a great deal on many religions & myths & have studied them & was even brought up in christian school Since studying so many different ones I associate with none since theres so much copycat betwee
justin, this format is to limiting for such a discussion. if you wish to you may contact me via my email (email@example.com) where we can discuss this more in depth. just put from hubpages in the subject box.
what has non believers to do with this question? CHRIST means nothing to non believers, thus this question is directed at believers. is CHRIST the same for believers today as HE was in the beginning? that is the question.
The question says to you, not just to believers. I believe this is a good answer. I believe basically the same thing as I explained in my answer. Even though I'm a non believer, I still believe he existed so that means I do have an opinion on him.
@timcgaa70. Did you believe in Christ before you heard of Him?
@swordManticorE, actually i am afraid that question doesnt apply to me. there has never been a time that i did not believe in CHRIST. HE came to me before i was old enough to know who HE was. I chose to follow HIM as soon as i was able to undrstnd.
@timcgaa70, How convenient for you? It's just a slap in the face for those children who were raised Hindus, Jews, Buddhists and Muslims, not to mention a slap in Christ's face. You were chosen before you believed in Christ and that justifies your sel
im sorry u feel slighted. i cant help how things are. i have nothing to defend and i wont argue about it. i know what i know. i live to obey GOD. CHRIST, HIS Son is my Saviour.
Dont apoligize. I know a seld-righteouse christian when I see one.
believe what you will, label me what you will. GOD knows the truth and that is all that matters.
I am in total agreement with you there.
Exactly, which is why the God of the "older" part of THE Testament, is exactly the same God in the "newer" part of The Testament.
It's a beautiful story indeed! God bless you.
yes let's all obey gods laws - Work on Sunday and you should be stoned to death. (Numbers 15:32-35) Wives must do everything their husband demands (Ephesians 5:22-24) You should not pray in public (Matthew 6:5-6) I'm sure you follow all them
Those are how we know he actually exsisted. To bad these writers dont speak of any of the miraculous things done but only that he was put to death. The other stories were written many years after death to attempt to fullfill old testament prophecy.
Actually, one of those historians, I forget which one, mentioned an unusual darkness covering a large area, at the reported time of Jesus' death, which the writer was puzzled about. That was a sign from God the Father.
An unusual darkness must be god nothing else could explain it, couldnt have been a cloud or anything like that or darkness as in a metapharical feeling Like its a miracle this person lived it must be God or it could've been all the doctors & scie
I didn't say anything to down play science.
Josephus was one of the primary historians that wrote about Jesus from a purely historical and not religious perspective. We live in 2012 AD the year of our Lord. Hmm.
justin, because you have no desire to believe, you cannot see the truth before you. therefore you mock it or throw up items you feel show it to be a lie. all it does is show your ignorance on the topic at hand.
i dont believe because there is no proof, zero, none. ignorance I have way more real knowledge on the topic which is why blind faith just wont do it for me I have done studies in college & there is no proof of anything other than contracting text
I think humanity need to get further away from religion and back to reality. Religion is not needed to love one another all religion is good for is producing many wars that all boil down to you don't believe exactly as I do, you must die.
this is true. i wonder only that non believers answer a question directed at believers. for unless CHRIST rules their life what could this question mean to them?
So if a person asks a question on Santa a person can't answer if they are a nonbeliever in him or unless Santa rules their life People can still have opinion on things that dont rule their life I dont believe in abortion I still have an opinion on it
