We are constantly being told that Jesus and that Christianity are the only ones who have the answers to life. I think they are pulling the wool over everyone's eyes by doing that. There are others who have said and taught the same lessons as Christianity's Jesus and before his time even. I brought this up over a year ago on FB and was told that others that taught these concepts were impostors and that Jesus is the ONLY one who taught these things. Did Jesus or Christianity teach anything new?
sort by best latest
like the concept of light bulb and the alpha and omega which would make it new to us but never to him. We need to know what's considered NEW.. Love been taught but was it the Love Jesus have the only real love. Who can teach it but Him? NEW to me..
Jesus also said that there is nothing new under the son/sun. He taught what many others taught before him. They are called Ascended Masters.
In Acts 19: 25-27 says that man-made gods are no gods at all. gods spelled with a lower case g means false gods. The one true God is spelled with a capital G.
SandCastles, I am very interested where you got this rule. Or are you just saying "for you", the G and g have that significance.
SandCastle, God did not dictate the books of the Bible and I dont think he made a distinction of the proper noun/pronoun to use. That would be MAN.
The point is your bible quotes, your supposed 'proof' is taken out of context. Jesus did not teach us that we were gods and neither did God. You don't mention that just the capitalization thing because you can't admit you were wrong.
WRONG!!!! That is what your religion wants you to believe because if you really knew the truth you would have no need of church and they would have no way to control your thoughts and keep you in fear.
eric-- look in the front of your bible and it will tell you that a upper G is talking about the God. Lower case other gods
Thanks Celafoe, I will now read and compare several bible versions. I smell a hub coming on that one.
Eric-the big g, small g difference was something I noticed reading the bible.
Lady G-religion does not control my thoughts and keep me in fear. That's not my reality.
Thank you for the answer. Now who taught about life before Lord Krishna, does anyone know?
To Krishna, God is an impersonal essence with no attributes like humans (can't think or love or feel)-just is. Teaches that we are all God-not what Jesus taught.
But Jesus DID teach that we are God. It is mentioned a few times in the Bible about how we Are Gods. The first mention is in Isaiah 41:22-24. The other 2 are John 10:33-35 and Acts 19:25-27.
First of all in that quote gods is spelled with a small g not a capital g. And the Isaiah quote is God mocking people who follow false gods, "Bring in your idols to tell us what is going to happen...so we may know that you are gods.
What "NEW" things did he teach? I want specifics not just you have to be saved and blah, blah, blah.
1. He is Lord of this World and all Worlds
2. He forgave sin
3. He reconciled man back with God
4. We will never be separated from God again.
5. We are royal priests and kings.
6. He loves us with never ending LOVE
You didn't answer the question. 1. All Worlds??,
To be saved through the death of God's son; that is new. What other religion teaches that the son of God had to die to save the world?
Egypt for one...Horus. I do believe there were the same things in the Sumerian Texts if you so choose to look that up for yourself and learn.
I respect your right to view God in the way you choose Lady Guinevere. That's your choice. I see God in a different way. To me, he is a spiritual being, a singular spiritual being unlike any other. I agree that we have God in us but we are not God.
II am not picking on anyone. R U a bit defensive?
Do you acknowledge that other religions also claim that they are the only ones who have the answers to life?
Sand, yes I do, do you? That is why I asked this question.
I don't believe any other religion taught that the son of God had to die for the sins of the world and that the only way to God was through Jesus.
Does a creation always follow that which created it...or not?
Lady, first the Worlds??? Read Heb 1:2 and 11:3. and for the NEW things Jesus taught are new according to the kingdom of God not a mindset. and no to the creation always follow who created it (Satan) didn't which causes the debates, unbelief inJesus.
Which version of the Bible is that from? Then U agree that there are other planets that hold life? Do you supposed they all know Jesus and he resurrected for them also? Pretty busy person and flying all over the Universe.
And God taught over and over again that he was the one true God. He was the maker; we were the clay. Adam and Eve were punished for wanting to be like God. God says trust in him, not in man or in ourselves. No teachings that we are gods.
No MAN taught over and over again to rely on an invisible being and the church will save you and you are guilty of sins you never done. All churches and religions teach the same. Christianity is NOT the exception of these.
That's your opinion Lady Guinevere. I believe in God and I don't think he was a man-made creation.
Sand, Yes it is my opinion from my perspected the GOD has shown me. It is all individualistic in our relationship that God and each of us has with it. GOD is not a he or she buy the energy all around and through us.
I believe that we have God in us but we are not God. The God within us to me is the holy spirit. I believe God is a spiritual being, a creator.
