I was taught that Jesus is the son of God AND Jesus was God manifested in the flesh and walked among us for approx 33 1/2 years.
If Jesus was the son of God and had the authority of his father OR if Jesus was God in the flesh either way, when he said that there will come many false messiahs, false preachers and false teachers, he would have been speaking them into existence. I think he also said there would be false miracle workers.
I can believe that my God might do that. But I can’t believe that he would then punish those that falls for that false religion that he created so exquisitely, by sending them to burn in hell forever. But if he does the odds are that Me and everyone I know are going to burn in hell for choosing to follow a false preacher or teacher.
I would think it best to follow NO man, but to follow those laws which God has chosen to write in the hearts of mankind.
I think that it is very possible that those laws which are written in my heart might not be exactly as those which are written in your heart.
If for no other reason than this, I am judge of NO man or woman.
It is written that by whatever measure of judgment that I pass, an equal amount will be placed upon my shoulders.
(if we are wise) This is reason enough that we should ..ALL just get along,.. as best as possible.
So lets all just agree to agree that I'm right and you are right
Yes, and the false preachers and teachers have taught you false concepts and told you never to question them. Well done, Jerami, you've revealed the problem with indoctrination.
I think that you still miss the point I was attempting to make.
Its kinda like a treasure hunt. And truth is the treasure, We can have all the right information that leades us to the treasure. But when we are enticed to begin by taking our first steps in the wrong direction, (south for instance) and we should have begun our quest by taking three steps west; and then gone south, even if everything else in the directions are correct, we will never find the treasure.
That just sounds like one messed up bit of confusion, dude.
Looking for truth is not like looking for treasure. Truth is everywhere, right in front of our noses.
The Ultimate proof of the man, whether he is right lies in the fact that he lives....Ultimately
If he dies unwillingly, he is wrong.
Thanks kess ....Took me a while to look within the statement.
I think I see but am left without a responce ???
Isn't it true that only when those who are truly right appears as if they are wrong,
is when those who are truly wrong appears as if they are right?
This is why Life must have the appearance of death so that those appearing as dead will Live.
I know these things goes against what you think you already know.....but still not quite.
Nevertheless you are of the right Spirit and you will prevail sooner rather than later.

At his last supper Jesus tells his followers that if they want to get to heaven they have to eat his flesh and drink his blood. The Catholic church tells us this is not a metaphor. When the host and wine are blessed...
