Do you even know the meaning of the word smug?
U must realize 1st where the bible originated from, where its contexts were taken from, & how many times it was re-translated. it was declared 'holy' by a corrupt government & a corrupt RC church. The good of its worth is lost in literal tran
This is a great fairytale meant 2 frighten & control. There is no evidence that any of this is truth, just the words of ancient superstitious, frightened people. Time 2 move into the present & leave the past where it belongs. Love takes us f
Bible? It still has to be translated, re-translated, re-translated from the translation from the translation, and so on, from Hebrew to Greek to the King James version - and we even have modern day English versions, nowadays, etc., so, uh, yeah...
actually the only true statement is: all roads lead 2 death. What happens after that is only speculation, with far less than any intelligent educated guessing, or wishful thinking.
"small is the gate." meaning following God's path, not any human's perception of God. These texts R translated incorrectly 2 narrow 1's view of religion 2-1's birthright version. God is not 1person. our 2 literal views need 2B broadened.
Really don't know where you're coming from with this....I am not talking about any humans perception, etc. Basically, the path to heaven is hard to follow on this carnal planet and many people with not find/choose to take the path. Period.
UR beliefs R urs alone & based on early childhood brainwashing techniques that will last 4 UR lifetime. They R fallacious & remove any logical deductive reasoning from ur mind. Believing does not equate 2 reality. what U learned is flawed.
In context it says something totally different: Matthew 7:10-16
Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

11 if, therefore, ye being evil, have known good gifts to give to your children, how m
L.G: Ur comments R based on literal translations made by whoever - We have no way of knowing what the original writings actually said. Be skeptical & think logically-not with fear in your heart. We R not intended 2 live our lives in fear-just lo
That is not why I posted it. I fear nothing, not even death. I have been over there and it is lovely beyond any comparison to this side. I really think that the narrow gate to life is the Birth Canal. Try that one on for size.
thanx 4 clarifying. I like ur interpretation re the birth canal.funny. i 2 saw the other side when i died at age 10 & have never forgotten it, so i fear nothing on earth. we crowd out our love for live with unnecessary fear & guilt. God bless
"UR beliefs R urs alone & based on early childhood brainwashing techniques that will last 4 UR lifetime"...How is this even a connected response to mines. Obviously, you're just posting to try and get a rise out of others & not discuss intell
No I am not. I posted it for reference that ur scrpt is out of context. That is all.
Phil: i have no interest in getting a rise out of any 1. I am called 2 give enlightenment 2 a troubled society. My spirit guides direct my writing & help clarify misunderstandings. We all need 2 broaden our views on old & erroneous belief sys
U R closest 2 the truth so far. there R many paths 2 follow but all end with a return 2 our spirit world.There is not only 1 path 2 follow. Religions mislead 2 control their followers.God does not turn any part of itself away from home. fear controls
Although terse, that was exactly my hopefully intended answer to this question.
John 1:1, 14 " In the beginning was the Word, & the Word was with God, & the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh (Adam+Eve), & dwelt among us." (God dwells within all men)
D. William, the verses you quoted do not imply that all paths lead to the kingdom of heaven. They support Jesus Christ's claims to deity. Verse 14 ("the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us") is actually referring to Jesus Christ, not Adam and Eve.
your biblical interpretation was to draw people into this religion - not a fact. If fact, then all who lived and died prior to J.C., and outside Christianity are in hell. Get real, man. Fairytales are only based on truth, not truths in themselves
from the new testament: Jesus said:.....
My friend I have read the New Testament several times, this verse does not exist.
John 8:12 quotes Y'shua, " I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (misinterpreted) JC was saying HE (as God) (not a man) was the light.......
Amen d. william!!
Refresh your memory? It is truly sad, that people need ancient verses to try and comprehend their own universal consciousness via self with the creation of it all; blah!
we R way 2 literal in translation causing opposing points of view. misquoting is only offering wrong perspectives. It is not a sin to question the literal wording of translated texts.
Ahh, hell, it is all metaphorical and symbolic anyway, which ends up going back to our original state of "finding truth from within." Yada-yada!
