hmmmm . . . (pausing to ponder) with a warm :) Then, if I understand, Jesus as deity is maybe acceptable and more believable as a concept than a fact?
I don't believe in a deity type God at all, so not really :), but I do believe there were wise beings along the way that wanted to teach people how to live up to their potential perhaps, of course MUCH has gotten lost in translation and literalism.
People use faith based theologies to create their own ideals.
Very interesting thoughts to ponder. Today, mostly, I see the Bible as books not 'a' book. They have connectedness as all books in essence do somehow and someway - origin of inspiration. Holy Books, any, seem less than Holy as dispute is abundant.
It's a good question to gain insight on how others believe, think, and feel.
Yes I do. There are more historical proofs than just the books of the Bible for those of you that argue against Him.
Where is this proof you speak of tigerbaby?
I am only arguing in favor of Jesus when I say he was not god and or son of god as Jesus himself defined his core teachings:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God wit
The word God is one that can be interpreted in many ways. It is an argument that has no end. I look at Jesus as a person that has exposed the inequities we all face in our daily lives. I accept his claim as a Prophet not God.
Yes, interpretation seems abundant with the word God. I wonder if life is not wasted on the abundant arguments and disagreements for meaning rather than simply acceptance for today 'something' will always be 'greater than' or 'before,' "Now."
You mad a mistake about the Bible it was written about 1700 years ago by the Roman Government not 3500 years ago. This is why no reality comes from its content.
The earliest versions of a bible were found 3500 years ago. That's what I leaned in church, contact my church if you wanna argue it, but it's what I learned.
