You know I used be this stern Christian believing that life would not be if it was not for God, Christ; and the Holy Spirit. Now after watching some of the "So called Christian" hubbers post slanders comments about this judgmental God that they believe in I cannot say that I would want to partake in there belief or their God.
However isn’t the true God; a God of forgiveness; and a God of love. Is not the true God; a God that says we must all love one another as he first loves us?
Didn't the true Christ die on the cross for everybody’s sin?
If this is not a myth then why do so many people "Hubbers" talk about this vengeful God who only forgives them of their wrong doings but everyone else will be cast into their so called hell.
Does God only forgive those hubbers who right on Hub Pages and wwright in a way to condemn others and it is only them that are forgivable?
Or is this there way of making money on Hub Pages and hiding behind their false Myth.
It will be what ever you believe it to be.
If you don't believe in their god, why create your own?
thats a garrish cross. Those are the suns rays and of course jesus looks beautiful as usual - this is a catholic cross i am betting.
The cross is not a symbol of the 'early church'. The cross was accepted by catholicism which we should all know by now is the earths biggest cult. The halo around the heads of jesus and others in old renaissance paintings represents the sun, a pagan symbol.
God has given mankind the freedom to believe as they choose. However God is not Santa Claus. He loves but he is also the Judge of all life and all things. What kind of God would he be if he did not punish evil?
And God puts up with our evil every day, year after year, generation after generation.
If he were a hateful God he could have gotten rid of us a long time ago but no he says I'm going to give you a chance to come back to me through my son. For those of you that don't believe are refuse then understand this there will be a price to pay:
Deuteronomy 4:24 (New International Version, ©2010)
24 For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

God is a just and loving God. Out of his profound love, he is giving everybody a chance to get it right. It will not be any excuse for anyone to say " I didn't know" when Jesus returns.
I see it differently. Our existence is designed in such a way that what you give you get. As it says in the bible, what you so you reap. This is also what is meant by an eye for an eye. It is not about judgement as such but more to do with cause and effect. Will we reap good or bad fruit. It is our choice. It is therefore self governing in a sense.
True Jesus was crucified for the sins of all mankind and true God is love. True we are dead to the Old Law of OT BUT, it is written:
Romans 8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death".
and what is this law of the 'Spirit of life in Christ Jesus'? That we sin not and love the Lord God with all our hearts.
Looking into the depth of Loving God with ALL our hearts does this not mean that we strive to do no sin. And therefore if we strive thusly, why should we do such a thing if there be no punishment for sin?
We, the saved, are not judged according to our sins but will be given reward in the afterlife BUT those in their sins will judged and found unworthy of eternal life.
Revelation is all about God pouring out his wrath upon the earth and the inhabitants thereof. Why? to bring people to repentance. This is his love. Heard the saying.?.. You have to be low to look up! Many do not discover their need for God until their world comes crashing down around them. A father will harshly discipline a very bad child, but discipline He will or to use a more biblical term, chastise.
Absolute salvation and an all loving God who does not judge is not scriptural doctrine; some will never repent, others who have will have no fruits worthy of repentance and some will backslide and die in their sins. If all get access to eternal life then there was no purpose to christ on the cross which is christlikeians most important aspect.
Agreed. It's good to have you back hangingout
But after that rant, your beliefs are still nothing but a myth to everybody, except other deluded Christians.
Sorry that you cannot see the obvious.
no. I am sorry. It seems there is no understanding in you and neither will you allow there to be.
enjoy your lifes management.
It may well be all that you have and i only say may because i do not know for certain your future and am unwilling to make a guess.
That "spirit of life", we all have, don't you think?
Of course, religion, in general, is one of the oldest scams ever concocted.
And all children born will be scammed from the cradle, with their parents being the tool, unwittingly, used to continue the scam. This is horrible.
But if its true then the scam that you indoctrinate your children with and then proceed to preach your scam outside your family. You are no different in fact you are worse.
worse how? You preach salvation by works. Just be good, no need for God or any of that jazz.
And yet bible prophecy is totally overlooked and we worry about theories like darwinism or we look at bad christians and say there are no good ones. There are lots of good christians, even some with incomplete pictures of this doctrine or that, but still good christians and there are good people that will never be allowed eternal life just because they abided in the doctrine that you preach .... works without christ.
This is what is horrible. no hope, none. You may very well be creating a frankenstein monster
Scam ? Yes. If any entity created this universe will not give birth to child which ultimately dies on cross like weak human being. Person who can't save his own a-- can't be universal savior. He just needs to save his own a-- the next time he resurrects,lol.
By subscribing to any single religion you put yourself into box of beliefs and discard anything that negates your set of beliefs in Christianity. Verse spamming and brainwashing will take you nowhere because you're trapping yourself in box of beliefs(in this case Christianity)
because you do not grasp the work that christ did on the cross you negate the most important aspect of christianity for if there be no resurrection then what hope is there, let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die. But by dying openly, God showed there is a resurrection and a hope and truth in what we cannot see. Abraham was told by God to sacrifice his son, everybody knows this story and then God came along and did what God stopped abraham from doing.. and still the sacrifice of God cannot be comprehended.
Christians are not trapped just the opposite we are free. We see how our belief eats away at the unsaved and they wish they had what we had. We are free in the world and in the world after because of what jesus did by way of the cross.
Best you find out what happened there before you go supporting some stand against such a brilliant work.

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?
